    Oliver Stone: 'US Has Become An Orwellian State'

    BTW, don't miss Stone and historian Peter Kuznick's book - the Untold History of the United States. It's a great read. MHG

        It's amusing when progressives whine about big government.

          Oliver Stone is obviously racist.

                  The topic at hand though is we are a police state.

                    Paramilitary police

                    Cops or soldiers?
                    America’s police have become too militarised
                    Mar 22nd 2014


                    In 2010 New Haven, Connecticut sent a SWAT team to a bar suspected of serving under-age drinkers. That same year heavily-armed police raided
                    barber shops around Orlando, Florida; they said they were hunting for guns and drugs but ended up arresting 34 people for “barbering without a
                    licence”. Maricopa County, Arizona sent a SWAT team into the living room of Jesus Llovera, who was suspected of organising cockfights. Police rolled a
                    tank into Mr Llovera’s yard and killed more than 100 of his birds, as well as his dog. According to Mr Kraska, most SWAT deployments are not in
                    response to violent, life-threatening crimes, but to serve drug-related warrants in private homes.

                    He estimates that 89% of police departments serving American cities with more than 50,000 people had SWAT teams in the late 1990s—almost double
                    the level in the mid-1980s. By 2007 more than 80% of police departments in cities with between 25,000 and 50,000 people had them, up from 20% in
                    the mid-1980s (there are around 18,000 state and local police agencies in America, compared with fewer than 100 in Britain).

                        I sometimes wonder what it will take before it is considered a wake up call.

                          Can the police do whatever they want, whenever they want? Question answered.

                            Clearly we need more government to regulate the unchecked expansion of the police state.

                              Well, yes and no:

                              There are bills being floated to shut off the water to the nsa building/data center. So, there are means of using the machine to fight the machine.
