As it turns out WE are Big Brother

Wanted to share this very short piece written by a controller for an investment advisory firm in Pennsylvania. He chillingly describes his newly vested powers, through the Patriot Act, to become an informant for the government on the minutest of matters concerning clients personal information.

Big Brother is now us.

Beamis, to my August 1st post "Wouldn't you like to be a Nazi too?", you commented:

What do you mean "we are in danger of becoming a nation of Nazis and informers"? Are you kidding? It is already here.

Right back at you.
