BLOG: 3 more ways the government will think you're a terrorist

Mark Gibbs | Aug. 20, 2013
Complaining about water quality, being a teenager and making stupid Facebook posts, and teaching people how to pass polygraph tests ... they'll all get you into trouble with The Man

The term "outrageous" doesn't begin to cover it.

The article goes on to quote John Schwartz, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection official, who gave a speech to a professional polygraphers' conference in Charlotte, N.C. in June:

 "Nothing like this has been done before ... Most certainly our nation's security will be enhanced. ... There are a lot of bad people out there. . . . This will help us remove some of those pests from society" 

Schwartz is correct, there are a lot of bad people out there and a great many of them work in our government but removing these pests from our society is going to take a lot of work.
