Jihad on You!

It turns out, I may be a terrorist:

Do I really think the government is going to go all McCarthy-era/J. Edgar Hoover-style surveillance on all of us limited government/federalist types? No.

But, seriously, these idiots need to clean up their language when they are dealing with statements like this because abuse does, in fact, happen and pronouncements such as this give legal cover to those who go too far. It's hard enough to discipline law enforcement for breaking the law--irresponsible nonsense like this makes it that much harder.

Take reason's "Are you a terrorist?" test here. Headline reference here. (Sorry, no vid available)
