The ThinThread of the Cronyism Web

Patriot Daily had an excellent post yesterday discussing the news that the Bush administration killed a pre-9/11 data mining program that not only was more effective then the current NSA program but also didn't infringe on the privacy of the public. Patriot asks the troubling question of what is the real purpose of the NSA program and gives a few possibilities.

But the one thing that was not discussed was the one aspect of the Bush administration we are far too tragically familiar with: cronyism. We all know that Bush likes to reward those who are loyal to him with cushy jobs or government contracts. Who's to say that the implementation of the current program had little to do with fighting terrorism while protecting civil liberties and more to do with rewarding a charitable campaign contributor or other Bush loyalist.

This could just be another shining example of Bush cronyism in action.

Triangulation, IMHO. With a fairly short call record...maybe as little as a week, the administration can determine who you are, what you do, how you vote, how much you make, and just about anything else that they want to determine. Wonderful demographics if say...they ever need to spirit you away for "re-education" without anyone noticing.

How you like them conspiracies?

"Repatriotization Centers" I think would be more accurate.
