Not sure how true this is, and that fact alone is pretty bad

My beloved stumble sent me to this article today.  I'm not sure if it's true.  But I do believe that the scenario painted isn't at all unrealistic.  We have seen the willingness of this administration to lie and suspend any semblance of the freedoms that this republic once held dear.  Worse is that people are too distracted by the spectacle of modern life to care.  Too wrapped up in their lives of pure, unadulterated consumerism.
