Did you ever get the odd feeling that you were being completely paranoid, and that the world seemed to be conspiring against you?
Maybe It Is
With all the crazy crap that this administration had done in the name of keeping this country safe from terrorism, and then cleverly trying to make it all legal by calling it “the Patriot Act”, it’s no wonder I get more and more paranoid.
How many of my phone calls may have been listened in on? How might my internet activity been tracked? Have my library records been looked at to see my book rental activity? How many folks are currently being held as enemy combatants in the various CIA prisons around the world, without access to any legal protections? How soon before the U.S. starts poisoning it’s perceived enemies as Russia seems to have done?
You’d never know it, but I think the concept of the Patriot Act is a great idea. Using any tools we can to protect ourselves against religious fanatics.
That is, unless the religious fanatics are running my government, and using anti-terrorist legislation to combat all things immoral.
I have to stop watching PBS.
I did absolutely no work at all on the colorblock cardigan. I got completely swept up in the new Lavold-inspired pullover using my handspun bulky.
I finished the bottom edge, and picked up stitches and knit up just over the arm hole shaping. It’s amazing how quickly a sweater goes on US10 needles.
