Giving Up Liberty
As anti-terrorism hysteria sweeps the globe, otherwise rational people are agreeing to give up ever more of their liberty and privacy in a vain effort to be safe. One of the more perplexing choices is how far to allow <a href=" ">cameras into our lives</a>. The following is one that makes this writer nervous:

"And, Bavarian interior minister Gunther Beckstein has suggested that cameras should be installed in German mosques to enable government agents to monitor and censor inflammatory remarks by Islamic leaders in the fight against terrorism."

1. Bavaria
Can we all guess who started his rise to power from good old Bavaria?

I'll give you a hint his name starts with the letter "H"!!!!

2. "Giving Up Liberty"

Isn't IRONIC that the more the NEOCONS take from our civil liberties
the more they treat we americans like sheep. Grooming us for the inevitable MARTIAL LAW. With things like the PATRIOT ACT, EMINENT DOMAIN decision,and PROPERTY TAXES all restrict our freedoms. The revised Patriot Act2 contains provisions that will totaly eliminate the rest of our freedoms under special circumstances which can be determined not only by the president but by our military without the approval of the president.
