    You're right. When tyranny is abroad, submission is a crime.

    Called the “Creating the Fourth Amendment protection act,” the bill would make providing any type of assistance — including “material support,” state funds, and services — a misdemeanor for corporations or person acting as state contractors, and a gross misdemeanor for state employees.

    Violating the act could land a state employee up to a year in county jail with a $5,000 fine. In addition, they would lose their job and be barred from public service.

    State contractors caught violating the act could face up to 90 days in jail with a $1,000 fine and forever lose the state’s business.

    Obviously this is far from law, but interesting.
    The NSA should be sent to GITMO for practicing terrorism.

    Why would the government see conspiracy theorists as a threat? Hmm...

    It won't pass but the water cooler discussions it'll create and is creating, media coversge, etc. is steering public sentiment in way way to demand citizen privacy. Probably the objective of the bill's authors and not the law itself ever being passed.

    Exactly the point, could even be their strategy.

    It will never amount to anything, unfortunately.

    Not all conspiracy theorist are deemed a threat, as most are saddled with cavilling thoughts that think in terms of checkers, rather than the considerations and sacrifice needed for victory in chess. It's the cagnisant power and inveterate pen of the OTHER to whom attention is taken by the insanity of Sion. To know the who, what and hidden mystery of this quote, makes you a candidate to become T.I (targeted individual).

    " Who and what is in a position to overthrow an invisible force? And this is precisely what our force is. Gentile masonry blindly serves as a screen for us and our forces, even its very abiding place, remains for the whole people an unknown mystery." - written by an elder of Sion (1700's) The Prodicols of the Wise Men of Zion

    Every word of this book has turned to reality, made possible by the bridled thoughts of Masonry that do their bidding and when needed no more, they too...will be disposable. Wake-up! Mass hysteria is on the horizon, but don't expect the justice of polity to sound the siren. The best advice is always given from the grave. If you've not been assasinated or in a plane crash or car collision that magically explodes on contact, then it's likely your words mean little. Wake-up! Wake-up! Assasination is legal now, did you know that?
