Day470 Monday 12/12/11

ran 7.1 miles
Between now and the next eleven months it is anyone’s guess what unexpected events will define the path to the 2012 presidential election. One can only speculate, but there is a lot of disturbing and epic legislation being discussed in Washington right now regarding civil liberties and the freedom of speech. The ideas are straight out of Orwell’s “1984” and force Americans to question what is going on, or what might be about to happen, that we don’t know about and our government appears to be preparing for?

FEMA is contracting companies to fill the everyday needs of hundreds of camps across America which appear to serve the purpose of detaining people. And this is happening simultaneously with legislation allowing the federal government to detain American citizens indefinitely with no trial or representation.

SOPA, the internet piracy bill, allows the government to make internet sites disappear, squeezing the life out of free speech as we know it and doing away with due process. If this particular site, for example, became a thorn in someone’s side and that individual or entity did not want this site to exist any longer, it would simply be gone one day with no notification or reason. The legislation for these ideas are not written with black and white clarity, but rather lawyer-speak jargon and plenty of hidden congressional motive that eventually leaves you questioning that if they can do this then where does it stop?

Remember when Egypt literally turned off the internet to prevent its people from organizing through social media. Our government can do that. Remember FEMA’s public broadcasting test a few weeks ago when our government attempted to determine whether or not they could temporarily cut off all radio and television broadcasts…for the first time in American history?

It’s going to be a crazy year and there is very little that would surprise me. On a completely separate and unrelated note, Michael Savage formally offered Newt Gingrich one million dollars today to drop out of the presidential race.

Things are only going to get more and more strange.

653.1 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day105.
