Much as I am sorry to say this, I'm exceedingly glad I'm not resident within the united States [correct spelling] or not so Great Britain.
The USA is now a police state. TSA agents are sticking their hands down pants and skirts groping people as young as 6 and less. Even the former Miss America was sexually molested by the terrocratic TSA, touching her lower female parts - http://updatednews.ca/2011/04/27/former-miss-america-sexually-molested-by-tsa/

Never mind the dollar taking a nose dive with a possible crash forthcoming, the botom line is your freedoms and civil liberties has been dramatically eroded and the worse is yet to come.

George Orwell's' dystopian novel "1984" written 62 years ago in 1949, foresaw the world Americans and many others live in today.
Ministries of Oceania
In 1984 London, the Airstrip One capital city, Oceania's four government ministries are in pyramids (300 metres high), the fa�ades of which display the Party's three slogans. The ministries' names are antonymous doublethink to their true functions: "The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation".
In 1984, there is a perpetual war between Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia, the super-states which emerged from the atomic global war. Fast forward 62 years and today we have perpetual wars on drugs, money laundering, terrorism, Iraq and Afghanistan etc. and so on.

It's no wonder the public doesn't believe or trust their government any longer. Case in fact, the brouhaha over President Obama's birth certificate.
Whether or not the president's birth certificate recently realize is real or a forgery remains to be seen. But two years ago the white house released a birth certificate claiming IT WAS THE real thing after repeated attackes claiming it wasn't. As shown by the release of Obama's recent birth certificate, the white house lied two years ago. If they lied then, why not lie now?
All of the above is not the behavior and actions of a free and civil governemnt. A government based on fear of terrorism, whose executive claims power not limited by the Constitution or Congress for the duration of an open-ended "war on terror," will create a state of tyranny. America is rapidly approaching that state of tyranny.
My question to you dear readers, is what are you going to do about it?!
See you next issue
