Papers please...
This kind of Gestapo shit really has to be stopped. Anyone who thinks The United States is not becoming a police state really is dreaming. It could be argued I think that it already has become a police state, but the cops just haven't quite cottoned on to the fact that they can now do whatever they want if they dress it up as part of the war on terror or the war on drugs. What is really going on is a war on freedom. I don't doubt that the powers that be may have had the best intentions but when you start handing over the kind of power the Patriot Act gives and combining it with the current administrations willingness to just ignore the law (see FISA and Bush's NSA domestic surveillence program) as it suit them and you get Italy circa 1936, but with leader with a weaker chin.
