Fascist America Government
Last year I wrote a rather humorous take on Arkansas’ mass bird deaths , anticipating a wave of paranoia amongst conspiracy theorists that would most certainly blame the strange, “Fringe”-like “pattern” on the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or HAARP.

Update 12/31: President Obama signs the NDAA into law.
(NaturalNews) One of the most extraordinary documents in human history -- the Bill of Rights -- has come to an end under President Barack Obama. Derived from sacred principles of natural law, the Bill of Rights has come to a sudden and catastrophic end with the President's signing of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), a law that grants the U.S. military the "legal" right to conduct secret kidnappings of U.S. citizens, followed by indefinite detention, interrogation, torture and even murder. This is all conducted completely outside the protection of law, with no jury, no trial, no legal representation and not even any requirement that the government produce evidence against the accused.
On the last afternoon of a mostly dismal year that saw him get kicked around endlessly by Congress, President Obama signed into law its controversial defense bill, the one which infuriated civil libertarians and many other reasonable people.

A new survey from Thomson Reuters and NPR reveals that roughly one quarter of respondents would refuse to pass through the full-body scanners that are now deployed at more than 100 U.S. airports.
This weekend the TSA saw fit to invade a man’s privacy at a train station in Charlotte, North Carolina. I kid you not, these TSA agents suspected the man was carrying materials for the creation of a nuclear weapon. Right, since nuclear bombs have been going off on American trains all over the place.
