United States Constitution, Fourth Amendment
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Theoretically the Olympics with its spirit of amateurism and multicultural participation is a model for a more open and transparent world. Unfortunately the Olympics has become a corrupt commercialized vehicle that enriches the few and gives monolithic authoritarian governments a world stage to showcase their petty nationalism.
It is hard to feel the excitement for the Olympics knowing there are people in Syria fighting for their survival against an authoritarian regime that cares little for human lives. Where are the medals for Ibrahim Qashoush?

First it was the Patriot Act, then the National Defense Authorization Act and now Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). When will irrational fear finally end?
Dear Congressmen, Congresswomen, and Mr. President, when can we have our freedom back?
