Speak Up . . . Or Shut Up? September 16, 2015Posted by nrhatch in People.
I got “shushed” this week.
For talking about how angry I am that the U.S. Government spies on “we, the people” ~ taping our phone calls, texts, e-mails, etc.
IMHO: Stealing our words, thoughts, and ideas and storing them for later use is devious, disingenuous, and . . . a disgraceful shame.
I expect more from a country self-identified as “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
As soon as I brought the topic up, the shusher admonished me to cease and desist:
“WE NEED TO CHANGE THE CONVERSATION NOW . . . NO DISCUSSING POLITICS OR RELIGION!”
But it bothers me that ANYONE would equate the erosion of civil liberties and increasing government intrusion as “politics” and, therefore, not open for public debate.
I think we’re doomed! 🙄
Aah . . . that’s better!
