Nationalist America: Congratulate those who were born to it, Neuter those who want it

The mindset of nationalist America can be summed up in stickers:

Born in the USA eagle badge

If you were born in this country, you should act like it’s an accomplishment.
If you want to live in this country, you should be neutered.

Spade and Neuter Immigrants bumper sticker.  Learn to spell.

I detect a self-esteem problem.

    The lack of self-esteem might have something to do with an inability to spell. The word is, of course, “spay,” not “spade”…unless the bumper sticker’s proud owner is proposing to batter immigrants with a shovel.

    Here’s some more stuff you can laugh about – Just Us dept.:

    Secret Court Document Finds Spy Techniques Unconstitutional, Justice Department Fights To Keep It Hidden

    The Justice Department may soon be forced to reveal a classified document that details unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens. The Justice Department has fought to keep the document secret for about a year, but a recent court order demands that they respond to a formal request filed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation by next week, June 7, 2013.

    This document was first revealed last July by Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., to call attention to an expansion of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in 2008 — which then-Sen. Barack Obama voted for . According to Wyden, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruled that the government violated the Fourth Amendment. The FISC mostly operates in secret, so the actual court decision remained classified. Wyden was only able to say the FISC decision existed; he was unable to disclose any details about the actual surveillance techniques that were deemed unconstitutional or how many Americans they affected. (there’s more)

    • Tom,

      Thanks for the link. I read that yesterday, and was considering writing about it — but it has a “wait, something’ coming” aspect to it that for some reason I’m dubious about. Maybe it’s because of all the times we’ve had those “here comes something” messages, only for nothing to come. Senator Wyden is definitely one to watch as one of the few “good guys” in Congress, the EFF is to be lauded for its work in trying to pry something free, and hopefully something’s coming down the pike toward public disclosure.

    This is pretty good too:
