On a day when the Attorney General cannot say whether or not he is investigating Congress, the cell phone records of millions of Americans are free game for the NSA and the Press ignores the open hostility toward their Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms, we commemorate the courage of those who sacrificed themselves to secure the freedoms we are abandoning and the prophetic book that so clearly warns about the things we are currently enduring.
You could have gone much, much further illustrating the alarming similarities. You could write a screenplay for an update of 1984, set in our current day. Not only would you not be lacking for anything technologically, you could enhance the story with what is now readily available and commonly in use.
As a btw, 1984 was published on June 8th not June 6th. It is also, ironically Joan River's 80th birthday.
I say ironic in the same way you did... meaning utterly unrelated and coincidental and not at all ironic in the least.
As the press shouts squirrel there are many who will not see what is happening to them. Some day, when it is necessary to know someone politically connected to get that heart by pass surgery, those who ignored the obvious signs of a government out of control will finally realize that dying for government health care sucks.
Was there something special about 64th birthday... I mean is it the tin foil birthday or something?
Something something Nintendo 64 something something...

Check your Verizon bill for the mailing address.
