Following the leads of my comrades at Calculated Risk, Comrade John Cole, and Comrade Earth-Bound-Misfit, I am temporarily changing my name to Comrade PhysioProf, in honor of the fact that we have apparently become a socialist state. As Comrade EBM put it:
Warrantless searches. Warrantless wiretaps. Detentions without trial. Accusations of treason against those opposed to the regime.
And now, socialism, at least for the rich (you poor saps who make less than a few million a year still get to drown without hindrance).
