Gov't Spying?  Start with Skull & Bones!

You Approve of Domestic Spying? Then Start With Skull & Bones!

A TvNewsLIES Proposal - Jan, 2006

Let's get it straight, you actually believe that the government has
the right to spy at will.  You really think there's nothing wrong with
listening in on domestic phone conversations or intercepting personal
e-mail or cell calls. You really have no qualms about bypassing the
courts and warrants to spy on Americans who might have expressed
opposition to the invasion of a militarily castrated nation? You
bought into the idea that secret government spying will keep Americans
safe. And you have no problem with spying on grass roots peace
organizations whose members walk around with signs demanding a safer
and friendlier world?

All right then, if spying is the way to go, why not snoop in the right

Do secret societies and organizations with great power and hidden
agendas make you at all nervous?  How do you feel about covert private
groups that wield enormous power, if not direct control, over your own
political system and on governments around the world?  If you don't
believe they really exist, how about using your super spy technology
to see if you're right, or if  just if  you're absolutely and
frighteningly wrong.

Heck, if you're going to spy, why not go after the bad guys.

Here's an idea: a new Cabinet Department: the DDGI  the Department of
Domestic Good Intentions. Let's set up a branch of government to
investigate  spy on, if you will  the secret organizations whose
agendas are never allowed to be exposed, and whose meetings are held
behind closed doors with no media coverage whatsoever.   The DDGI
could be charged with discovering whether these groups secretly
formulate policies or illegally usurp powers constitutionally reserved
for elected representatives of the people.

If you don't think that's happening, why not be certain? These folks
are far more of a threat than the people being spied on right now. Go
for it.
