Hooray for Stalinist America!
- Oh, if only Stalin had possessed todayâ€™s modern technological advances, his achievements in "security" would have been even more staggering. NKVD disappearance lists could have been compiled electronically. The process would have been watertight and fewer undesirables would have slipped through the net. Still, when it came to silencing dissident voices, Uncle Joe had a remarkable track record.Well, Stalin is pushing up daisies now so that chapter is all vodka over the gulag.Cut to 2008. Congress, The Decider and acting President Cheney are still locked in a pretend squabble over the Foreign Intelligence and Surveillance Act, a.k.a. FISA. One wonders what all the hoopla is about.
