How Big Do You Want Big Brother?

What else do you want Big Brother to ban?


It's really nice to walk the streets breathing carbon monoxide knowing that you are not breathing tobacco smoke.

*:eek*

What else do you want Big Brother to give you?

What other freedoms are you ready to give away to feel safe?

What is the role of a central government?


Are you really ready and willing to give it all to the Big Bro?


*questions*

Big Brother seems contented to ban gay marriage lately.

Down with Big Brother.

I think Big Brother should only do things that deal with the country as a whole. I don't think they should ban smoking or control what we watch on TV or what we listen to or what we read or say or, like Irvine pointed out, who we marry or anything like that.

Obviously you hadn't checked in on the renewed push for big government "compassionate conservatism" following Katrina.

A difficult question when using the term "Big Brother". We feel very comfortable having "Big Brother" tell us who we can associate with, who we sell to, etc. The Orwellian label is misleading.

Walk through a law library and see how many books it takes to cover all the laws of the federal and state governments. "Big Brother" is very big.

Yeah big brother is pretty big isn't he. Well. He seems to be getting bigger even as the taxes get smaller, funny how that is! It's almost like magic!

He's a magical old tiger, is big brother!
