New category: Security Theater
Ever since 9/11, the US Government has tried a lot of things to make us more secure. They’ve passed the Patriot Act, created numerous new government agencies like the TSA and DHS, started to secretly spy on americans and of course invaded and occupied Iraq- a country which had nothing to do with anything of this.
Of course, most everything the government has done has been a complete fiasco and hasn’t made us anymore secure. Rather then spending money and time making our borders more secure, we’ve spent a great deal on security theater- things which really do nothing to improve our security.
So, I’ve decided to track the results of our governments actions- how our policies, laws and regulations effect ordinary Americans at home and abroad.
