"That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

- The "U.S. Declaration of Independence"

Big brother is alive and well and you're being watched!

Stewart's Shops will be doing their part for homeland security.

The company is placing the number for New York's Terror Tip Line on milk cartons sold around the Capital Region.

It's all part of Operation Safeguard, which asks businesses around the state to look out for suspicious activity.

Stewart's Shops already places public service and safety messages on the sides of milk cartons.

NYS Office of Homeland Security Director James McMahon said this message is a reminder for all New Yorkers to stay vigilant. He said, "The longer we've been without an attack in our country, the complacency sets in. So the more we can advertise that there is a tip line,be aware of it, here's the number, call it if you see something suspicious."

The toll-free New York State Terrorism Tips Line is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

So there you have it folks. Bush, Blair et al are making Amerika and the UK a safer place for you! Not only is your government spying on you illegally, now they are asking your neighbor, grocer, bus driver, taxi drivers and everyone else to do their dirty work for them. And you know what? They're doing it.

See you next issue
