Justice Breyer warns of Orwellian government
A Supreme Court justice on Tuesday expressed major concerns that the government would engage in round-the-clock surveillance reminiscent of the totalitarian world of the George Orwell novel 1984, if the Court ruled in the government's favor.

Justice Stephen Breyer questioned what a democratic society would look like if people believed the government was tracking them for days at a time.

"If you win this case, then there is nothing to prevent the police or the government from monitoring 24 hours a day the public movement of every citizen of the United States.”

Scary crap when you have a Supreme Court Justice saying it, though. Aren't they supposed to uphold the Constitution?

U.S. Deputy Solicitor General Michael Dreeben contended that if all Americans viewed warrantless tracking as an Orwellian invasion of privacy, Congress would step in with a legislative solution.

Breyer is obviously a Zio-Shill Lobby-Recipient, so why is he warning everyone about totalitarianism?

We should just start standing in front of police stations. We will not be protesting, we will just help big government watch us by having a lines of people standing arms length apart so the police know they can safely walk threw and watch us. If anything, big government should thank us for saving them time and money.

This is bullshit. The American people have voiced their displeasure with many issues over the years and congress does nothing. Start with about 90% of the patriot act, red-light cameras, traffic cameras, the crippling of the 1st and 2nd amendment, etc, etc. Solicitor General Michael Dreeben knows full well it would take years and years to ever reverse the effects of such a thing.
I only believe half of what I read and even half of that is bullshit.

"White privilege" is the liberal religion's version of Original Sin: you are born guilty, and you carry that burden of guilt all your life, and the only way to escape eternal damnation is for white people confess their sin, to bow, kneel and believe the dogma of the Church of Liberalism, genuflect at its altars, honor its saints, fill the collection plate, and never, ever doubt.
