That's what set me off. This handwringing "Oh 1984 Oh McCarthyism OH DISSENT IS BEING CRUSHED" hysterical crap that's been squealed since last year.
Dissent isn't being crushed, but you go on acting like you're a vanguard of liberty, you wild crazy munchy crunchy rebel you.
The only thing I have to ask is how anyone posting as "Commander X" can call someone a nerd?
Is this an example of "It takes one to know one", or is it an example of Irony?
As for freedom being taken away, why don't you ask that suspected terrorist the government is holding that hasn't seen a lawyer in the 5 months he's been held.
