Joseph Andrew Stack, an anti-government, anti-IRS, anti-tax personality who would have blended in well at Tea Party protests, intentionally flew his airplane into an office building in Austin that contained an IRS office.

The spy satellite operations of the National Applications Office place each and every one of us in a panopticon, a virtual prison in which we are treated as criminally suspect, and under constant threat of surveillance, though we’ll never really know whether we’re being spied upon at all.
