12/23/2005 Archived Entry: "A good citizen reports a terrorist threat"
A GOOD CITIZEN REPORTS A TERRORIST THREAT. I've just heard from an ardent freedom lover who is also determined to be a good citizen of the modern surveillance state. The Department of Homeland (Achtung!) Security has a page (in fact has two) where you can report terrorist threats and dangers to the public health. Good Citizen #999-00-8672 (the number has been changed to protect the innocent) notes that he has already done his duty by reporting George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, various members of the presidential cabal, and a goodly number of senators.
Of course, everyone knows that I do NOT endorse snitching. By no means do I believe others should join Citizen #999-00-8672's one-man TIPS program. Certainly, aspiring Good Citizens should, if they choose to participate, take care to protect their identity against the those deadly -- and highly vindictive -- terrorists who hate America's freedom and are working full-time to destroy it.
