Hold The Pepperoni

I am not too keen on the ACLU, but they certainly show us how pizza-ordering might be in the future.


Dame Stella Rimington recently said that the British government have turned the island-nation into a security fortress since she was head of MI-5. It starts incrementally, with the best of intentions, CCTV protecting the populace from thugs, national ID cards to effectively mete out bureaucratic goodies, etc. etc. but it always starts. More importantly, it never ends.

  • I am not too keen on the ACLU

    Their politics may at times be off-putting, but its better that they're there than not. When people talk about "speaking truth to power" these are the people who can actually do it.

  • Agree on the ACLU.

    As far as personal privacy is concerned, the National Healthcare Database scares me. The ACLU has interest in this, but I fear the centralization of this data, combined with what is already known about me by the IRS, Selective Service, SSA and various state governments, not to mention banking and credit reporting agencies.

    And if Ray LaHood's idea for mileage taxation resurfaces (and you know it will) we're screwed.

    ARRA, I fear, is the start of a slide down the slippery slope...
