If you didn't think the neocons really do want to turn us into a fascist country, two more examples from the news. First, this lovely quote:
Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner III, R-Wis., told cable industry executives attending the National Cable & Telecommunications Assn. conference here on Monday that criminal prosecution would be a more efficient way to enforce the indecency regulations.

"I'd prefer using the criminal process rather than the regulatory process," Sensenbrenner told the executives.
Or, in other words, say good-bye to everything that people like Lenny Bruce fought and died for. If this doesn't scare you, it should -- because indecency is in the eye of the beholder, and it's not a very big jump from someone being fined by the FCC for saying a n**ghty word on TV to being arrested for criticizing the government.

Then, this:
Americans will need passports to re-enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, Panama and Bermuda by 2008, part of a tightening of U.S. border controls in an era of terrorist threat, three administration officials said Tuesday.
Lovely. Absofuckinglutely lovely.

Get out those brownshirts now, kids.
