I hate the US. Really I do. More that I have to be here than anything. :)

The Department of <s>Home</s>Fatherland Security strikes again. A fun... no, make that downright scary fact is that they now have more legal powers than Stasi ever had - Stasi at least had to obtain warrants to spy on people, and left proper paper trails of their actions. The DHS has very few such limitations.

The only thing Orwell got wrong with 1984 was the date.

In other news, the IRS suddenly re-discovered it could prosecute non-profits for having opinions on the presidential contest. Did it go after obvious political front organizations? Churches being used as campaign offices? Phony think-tanks cranking out propaganda disguised as research?

Nope. They are after the NAACP for a speech by Julian Bond in which he says something nasty about Bush. We are assured that the decision had nothing to do with politics.
