What, Me Worry?

Mad Magazine’s Alfred E. Neumann seems the perfect model for todays’ American citizen:

1. The President, Barack Obama, has expanded his Republican predecessor’s claim to the right to kill whoever he decides is a threat, anywhere, anytine, without review.

2. The Federal transportation cops (TSA) are moving out from airports to random searches of both public transport and private auto travelers on an increasing scale, stopping and searching anyone and his property regardless of due process or even reasonable suspicion.

3. Both parties just passed the Defense Authorization bill with a provision empowering the U.S. military in the U.S. to sieze and indefinitely imprison incommunicado anyone accused as a threat, a clear violation of Constitutional rights of citizens. Ron Paul described this as the onset of totalitarianism.

4. The government’s ongoing policies against energy and increasing the cost of living while driving production overseas are turning suburbia–the home of the middle class and the American Dream–into increasingly desperate circumstances.

A famous line to repeat to our Alfred E. Neumann citizens comes to mind:

      Ask not for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
