Right Think

We already knew this, but here's another example of the fascistic tendencies of many on the right.
...every phone and computer in America should now come with a warning label: Warning: the privacy of your communications can no longer be guaranteed, by order of President Bush."

That warning wouldn’t bother me one bit. I’ve always assumed the government has access to everything anyway.

The acceptance of full-scale government intrusion because of the wrongheaded mindset: "I've done nothing wrong, I have nothing to hide, so I have nothing to worry about."

It was a reaction to Ted Kennedy's December 22 op-ed, in which he also references the student who claimed to have been visited by Feds after checking out Mao's Little Red Book. The author chastises Kennedy for spreading rumors on the internets and not verifying facts, linking to a story that came out the same day that the student wasn't talking, but that the Feds were denying the story.

Talk about a Derangement Syndrome -- how about the Ted Kennedy Derangement Syndrome, which makes people think Ted Kennedy knows facts that haven't been made public yet?
