Orwell Update II

From the I am not making this up (but I wish I where) file the head of “visitor tracking” for the Department of Homeland Security wants to create a global tracking system. Of course, he wants to do this for the “convenience” of travelers and, all together now, to fight terrorism. Had a Clinton official proposed this, conservatives would have been up in arms, with many Christians saying this was a step toward implementing the Mark of the Beast. Watch many of those same Christian conservatives meekly accept this as “the price we must pay to protect our way of life from those who hate freedom, besides a Republican administration would never do anything evil.”

Thanks to the indispensable Declan McCullagh for the link.
