    If anything summarizes the kind of state the US is in this is it. In big letters some unknown threat, which is then not specified – partly because it’s not real and partly because nobody bothers (hey, whose job is it anyway?) – and then underneath, the fine print. Seriously, they should add “certain restrictions apply” to the money here – you can find it everywhere else! This is just a perfect mix to keep people afraid: Tell them about terror, violence etc., don’t tell them about how big the problem really is and then make it clear that if anyone bothers to ask, there are all kinds of restrictions that would make getting the information and enormous kerfuffle. – Joerg
