Dumpster diving meets National defense. That's what the new FBI Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide is bringing to our Country.
And I have absolutely no problem with it.
As far as I'm concerned, the Feds can sift through my empty soup cans, dirty Kleenexes and crumpled "to do" notes anytime that they want to. If they do so and don't leave a mess behind, it's fine with me. After all, anything that I toss-out is pretty much fair game, anyway.
I just wonder what they would have found in Congressman Anthony Weiner's trash a few months back?
The National Enquirer published photos of Mr. Weiner, all dressed-up in a bra and women's panties, in their magazine, that hit newsstands today.
So would the FBI have found receipts in Weiner's garbage that told them what Victoria's Secret really is?
You've just gotta wonder.
Which brings me to my point, here:
Whose waste can should be investigated first and how should that action be decided?
Has the FBI sifted through Terri Moulton Horman's leavings yet...or do they have plans to do so?
And should a blogger (like me, for instance) be scrutinized for what I post or for who I link to?
Who really has the right, in our Federal Government, to tell the citizens of this Country...what is right and what is wrong?
Is it wrong for a Congressman to compromise a minor female, dress up in women's clothing and then lie to the American people about the whole thing?
Is it right for a woman to take a young boy away from his home and those who love him and then refuse to bring him back?
What if someone supports the removal of all prohibition against marijuana in the United States?
What if someone belongs to the NRA and believes in the unequivocal right to bear arms in this Country?
Should the above-mentioned people be legally sanctioned and stripped off all reasonable semblance of privacy?
When it comes to investigating, how far should the Feds be allowed to go?
And when considering someone like Congressman Anthony Weiner...should the Federal Government spend a little more time policing itself...first?
