Mother Jones news put together a collection of how the government spots terrorists.
let's take a moment to see how I look when examined with the list in mind.
Phoenix FBI Manuel
Defenders of the U.S. Constitution against federal government and the UNLooking bad for me. Lets see how I look when the Virginia manual is examined.
Groups of individuals engaging in para-military training
Those who make numerous references to the U.S. Constitution
Those who attempt to police the police
Members of anti-government and militia movementsThe definition of what an anti-government group is has become so vague that I'm not sure.
Property rights activists
Members of racist, separatist, and hate groups
Environmental and animal rights activists
Members of street gangs
The same Virginia manual says terrorist carry the following
Sketch pads or notebooksWhile I do have a Zorro outfit. I'm not sure the games I play at home would define me as a terrorist. Kinky yes, but not a national threat.
Maps or charts
Still or video cameras
Hand-held tape recorders
So looks like I may never go to Virginia or Arizona.
There are more lists in a good collection of what a government looks like when it jumps at the shadows and fears the darkness.
