A Beautiful World We Live In

Are you fucking kidding me? We're now going to 24 ourselves into cheering for warrantless domestic surveillance?

The show's description of itself:

Mysterious billionaires. Presumed dead CIA agents. A machine watching your every move, listening to every phone call. Person of Interest premieres September 22, 9/8c on CBS, but before it does, watch this exclusive video giving you interviews with cast and crew about what makes this a show you won't want to miss.

Goodbye, Bill of Rights. You always were a thorn in the side of our military-industrial-infotainment complex overlords.

They use this stuff to bust hippies growing peyote in their backyards and teenage boys who forward naked videos their girlfriends send them.

Whenever an obvious financial crime surfaces on Wall Street involving billions of dollars suddenly the government is helpless to issue a search warrant and sieze incriminating papers before they're destroyed.

Orwell must be spun up to about light speed by now.

These warrants are such a pain in the ass. And sooooo technical.
