The focus on the war vets is most interesting...

They aren't just folks with skills that could be used against the government, they're people who know much better than I how the whole military industrial complex thing really works. To use a phrase that is often used against our sort, why should the government worry if they have nothing to hide?

This smacks of a government that is beginning to feel the pressure of opposition. Hmm, citizen detainment camps, they've never been used before by a government scared of newly empowered citizens...about 4,300 soldier deaths in our first Revolution, 13,000 prisoners of war herded onto ships. To get out, all they had to do was swear allegiance to the king. The majority chose death over the sacrifice of their liberty.

This week I will be checking a bit more into the Maryland fusion center, and posting if I find anything worthwhile to report...

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
