    When the political rhetoric talks about people being watched so as to deny travel or arms or that they be sent directly to Guantanamo Bay without due process, consider they might be talking about YOU.

    This is a site that allows you to link directly to the document that labels you or your neighbor a potential terrorist.

    Just a sample from the list:
    Plenty more at the link.

    90 percent of the posters on this website are terrorist according to this.

    Snowden said it was like this.

    I scored 13 from that list of 16. Do I get a gold star or what?

    No star. I will pitch in if you start up a gofundme though to fund all the stickers you want.

    Just check in daily please. If you don't check in, we know to go to code Orange.

    What did you score out of the 72?

    ETA: I hit 21 of them.

    I am not, nor will ever be, a terrorist.

    To me, this reads like a list of who the government knows it is ticking off and doesn't want around.

    OK, I guess I needed 15 of the 16 to get a star huh? I did not do the 72. There are too many and they take time and thinking and some might be mean to me so I will stay here in this safe space.

    Looks like 12 out of 16 for me. Nemo has got me beat. They'd still throw us both in the same hole if they could.

    Even more scary when you realize if they wanted you gone all they would have to do is pull this crap and you'd be in a hole somewhere, no due process, no way to get out, no way for anyone to know where you are.

    Seriously, go look at the FISA Secret Government court and tell me how that works.

    Due process is gone now as long as they can call you one of these "terrorist."

    We have become the collectivist Marxist, Socialist, Communist Hell that we said was so terrible for so many years. Thanks Bush and Obama. NDAA did this, right? Patriot Act just started it.

    We're so screwed in the future. If the government wants to disappear you because you become annoying, it appears its fairly easy. Maybe they'll let you go after 20 years of keeping you in some whole if you're lucky, since obviously, you never actually hurt anyone.

    If you're not on a watchlist somewhere, you're not paying attention...

    Indeed.

    I'm confident that every member of GCO and GPDO are collectively on a list somewhere.

    The lawmakers throw around "terrorist" so loosely that nearly anyone can fit the bill. Terrifyingly enough so many people were ready to remove due process for one watch list.

    Wow. I lost count. But they did forget about- owns a 4x4, rides a motorcycle, talks on a cb, and speaks pig latin.

    Hit about 35 of them. Why do I keep being left off the ISIS kill list?
