Be Very Afraid?
Interesting letter to editor of the Ukiah Daily Journal that was forwarded to me this morning. The writer recounts his experience of a raid of his property by the Drug Enforcement Agency. While the writer correctly attributes the increasing danger we face to the War on Terror, I'd beg to differ a little. The attacks on our liberties and the increasingly aggressive actions of law enforcement are nothing new. They've been going on for quite some time under presidents and congresscritters from all sides of the aisle. They certainly may have seemed to increase their tempo under the Bush Administration but they've been building up momentum for much longer than that.
That more and more average folks are becoming aware of the danger is a good thing. Whether they've become aware too late is another question altogether.
