Van Buren on Our Dark Overlords:
"We Have to Destroy Our Constitution to Save It"
A welcome note

Can't Opt Out: 10 NSA Myths Debunked"
Peter Van Buren lays waste to the Ruth Marcuses of the world
who are forever cooing in our ear that we have
nothing to worry about with respect to
Government spying: "If you have nothing to hide,
you have nothing to fear," they tell us.
We at Presstitutes are not conspiracy theorists,
but it's hard not to note that 9/11 was the
single greatest gift ever to those who want to
abrogate Americans' freedom and institute a
police state in the USA. And those people
are not foreigners (although, in truth, many do
have one famous "dual
Van Buren on the topic:
1776 to 2001 the United States did not
experience a terror attack anywhere close to
the scale of 9/11; the worst terror attack
against the United States as of 9/10, the
Oklahoma City bombing, claimed 168
lives compared to some 3,000
at the Twin Towers. Since 9/11 we have not
had a comparable mass-scale terror attack.
No dirty bombs at the Super Bowl, no
biochemical nightmares, no suicide bombers
in our shopping malls or theme parks. There
have been only about 20
domestic terror-related deaths since 9/11.
Your chances as an American of being killed
by a terrorist (the figures are for the
world, not just inside the U.S.) are about 1
in 20 million.
The inevitable comparison shows the odds of
being struck by lightning at 1 in 5.5
million. You are, in other words,
about four times more likely to be struck by
lightning than killed by a terrorist. Most
of the “terrorists” arrested in this country
post-9/11 have been tragicomic fabrications
of the FBI. 9/11 was a one-off, an
aberration, so unique that its “success”
stunned even Osama bin Laden. It was a
single morning of disaster and cannot be the
justification for everything the government
wishes to do forever after.
