The names and licenseplate numbers of about 30 people who protested three years ago in Colorado Springs were put into FBI domestic-terrorism files, the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Colorado said Thursday.

The Denver-based ACLU obtained federal documents on a 2002 Colorado Springs protest and a 2003 anti-war rally under the Freedom of Information Act.

ACLU legal director Mark Silverstein said the documents show the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force wastes resources generating files on “nonviolent protest.” Story

Paranoia is sure rampent these days in America, not to mention loss of privacy. I wonder how long before the 30 people get interrogated and if they refuse to co- operate, will they be considered "enemy combatents"?

Paranoia is NOT rampant.

This country is too big and sprawling with people busy with their lives, caring for their children, going to their jobs, planning their retirement, going to school, dancing, taking the dog for a walk, maybe even getting one more day to hunt black bear in New Jersey....

Do you have an alarm on your house, do you keep your doors locked when your at home? Do you own a gun for protection?
