Look what we got here…Congressman Darrell Issa, the richest man in the House of Representatives, has asked for the data regarding Freedom of Information Act requests. He wants that the federal government release to him the entire information, i.e. names, specifics demanded, businesses, etc, for all Freedom of Information Act requests that have been made. Wow! And for what? We can’t be sure but it is not for the greater good. Either it is for his own personal career advancement or he is simply doing somebody else’s job for the higher hierarchy. Will this information serve only to assure his political grounds or rather to produce a data file containing names of researchers, journalists, whistleblowers, who may present a « risk » for the fascist State? The corporations run the show now and the politicians are only their lapdogs. Is Darrell Issa simply a petty politician trying to clear his path to the White House or someone implementing a police state policy? Is Big Brother watching you or is it simply corruption?
