DHS Snitch App For iPhone

December 15, 2010

Sound like Nazi Germany? No, it’s the latest brainchild of the Dept. of Homeland Security. And like so many misnomers of government creation this one is called Patriot App. I wonder if it’s free or you have to pay Homeland Security to rat out someone?

In case you can’t read the fine print (not to mention between the lines) the categories you can choose from are:

Right out of the fuhrer's playbook

  • National Security Threats
  • Suspicious Activity
  • Crime Report
  • Product Safety
  • Environmental Safety
  • Government Waste (how about this App??)
  • Pandemic
  • Employee Whistle Blower
  • Most Wanted

This coupled with the ‘If you see something, say something campaign‘ Wal-Mart is doing in cahoots with Janet Napolitano is guaranteed to keep us safe.

It seems sorta creepy to me having Big Sis looking down on us What say you?

Meanwhile Chicago, even after the Supreme Court overturned the city’s handgun ban continues to clamp down on gun owner rights. First they made it harder (increased paperwork and more expensive) to register guns, then they limit gun sales in the city and now they are making more difficult to use shooting ranges. Something’s not right here.
