The White House continues to get bolder and bolder in how it is keeping track of those who disagree with its positions. From the actual White House website
There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
So now they wish to control the casual conversation about how one interprets a program that they thoroughly dislike from the O'ministration?
Reporting something fishy
as it relates to the public welfare and national security I understand.
Doing something simply because it goes against a domestic policy that the President is trying to cram down people's throats is quite a different thing.
This isn't Stalin's Soviet Union, nor Hitler's Germany... and we had better speak louder and longer, and more belligerently if we wish to ensure that tomorrow doesn't look like either of those realities.
Honestly, how arrogant of an administration to you have to be for calling for the reporting of casual conversation to be reported to the White House?
Can we say that in this instance the White House acted "stupidly?"
