In the Name of Terror

   In the name of terror our governement is starting to infringe on on our liberties. Our so called democracy is getting more compromised it seems.

   Two stories that I came across this week have me worried about this. I heard that we have a Guantanamo North and also that the US is doing some major wiretapping it seems.

  Gitmo North seems to have been set up near Kingston now, where we keep prisoners without charges, without trial, under secret evidence, and  under threats of deportation to torture. According to the report I saw, we are holding 4 men there right now, they are being held on so called "security certificates ". Whatever that may be. Should these four men be terrorsists we should charge them with a crime, not just be holding them like that. It is a dangerous precedent that Canada is embarking upon here

   The other shocking news is that the National Security Agency in the US  has been collecting telephone records of millions of Americans. Sure we are not Americans but if you call to the US, you are getting recorded. It is just a matter of time before George W. convinces his new buddy Stephen, that we need to do this as well.

  About twenty years ago, I was on a train in Europe and some guy I met told me that all our calls were being recorded. At the time I thought he was a crackpot but he was probably right, who knows.

   In conclusion, I will say be careful reading my blog, big brother may be watching, you never know.

A quote from Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) on the subject. " Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. "
