Reagan breaks PATCO… America WINS! Or did we?

Yep, bust the Union, bring in workers whose only qualification was that they were dumb enough to work as Scabs, shank their Fellow Workers and their families and then expect to get decent treatment from the Big Boss Man. Trickle down effect of decades of infrastructure neglect and what happens. Arguably, 9/11, but that wasn't entirely the fault of the Controllers or equally arguable that it even happened as narrated by Bush and his fellow liars for the next hundred months or so. 15182

Papieren Bitte? Just your shoes please

Most people can easily conjure the cinematic image of Gestapo officers blocking train passengers, demanding "Your papers please." That such a scene could ever develop in America, haunts citizens opposed to national identity cards or embedded microchips. But with modern surveillance methods as pervasive as cellphones, perhaps today's state security services have less need to verify who we are. I'll assert the US Department of Homeland Security is charged more with making Americans feel the heavy boot print of authoritarianism. 5822
