Student who was visited by Homeland Security
 
A few days ago a poster referenced an example of our civil liberties being violated. It involved a UMASS student who was questioned by Homeland Security officials after he checked out Mao's "Little Red Book" from the school library. The guy now admits he made the whole thing up. He wanted the publicity and he got it from this hoax.

Mao's book is so 2004. Nowadays the FBI only watches The Moosewood Guide to Vegetarianism and Herbert Sees a Who.

Those readers are the real terrorists.

To dismiss the threat to American civil liberties because this one particular case turned out to be a fake is inexcusable for supposedly "advantage poker players", as it constitutes short-term results oriented thinking, pure and simple.

The monitoring is real. What Americans are reading, watching and talking about is being monitored with less restraints, checks and balances than ever. That's no hoax.

And if the monitoring is being done, following up on it is only to be expected.
