Try to be pleasant to one another, get plenty of fresh air, read a good book now and then, depose your government when it suspends the free press, try to use the mechanism of the state to adjudicate fairly and employ diplomatic means wherever possible to avoid armed conflict.
Prometheus, responding to the question of what humans can do to improve themselves in The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde
Okay, everyone. Let’s get this straight.
These guys are fighting for your freedom:
These guys are providing muscle to a corrupt government because they can’t find jobs or afford to go to school:
Military service is not the same thing as fighting for freedom. I love my soldier friends, and I appreciate their service, but they are not fighting for freedom. They’re fighting for a government that wants to strip America of all freedom.
Guys, this is important if you’re American. The TSA was ordered to review their carcinogenic naked scanners by a court over a year ago. The TSA has still not complied with that court order. So EPIC posted a petition on the White House web site, where they are supposed to get a (usually vague and meaningless) response about the issue from the White House, if it gets enough signatures. The White House took the petition down before its time had expired, just before it reached the required 25,000 signatures.
The TSA has been violating freedoms and destroying the Constitution, and now the president is helping them to avoid accountability for it.
