The Blogfather and others have been mentioning the TIPS program, and everyone seems to be somewhat scared about the Orwellian nature of the program. I am scared, but as usual, for a much different reason.
The reason I am scared is because I am shocked that this is the BEST idea we have for what would amount to a Federal neighborhood watch- reliance on civil servants???? Let me get this right- the best way to find terrorists in our midst is to employ the same people that took three weeks to get my mail to me when I moved 1/2 mile across town? And this was after I went to the post office and TOLD them my new address.
Yeah. I am scared alright. Excuse me while I go build my bomb shelter.
