From your friendly neighborhood totalitarian regime hopefuls:

Last week, the American Library Association learned that the Department of Justice asked the Government Printing Office Superintendent of Documents to instruct depository libraries to destroy five publications the Department has deemed not "appropriate for external use." The Department of Justice has called for these five public documents, two of which are texts of federal statutes, to be removed from depository libraries and destroyed, making their content available only to those with access to a law office or law library.

The topics addressed in the named documents include information on how citizens can retrieve items that may have been confiscated by the government during an investigation. The documents to be removed and destroyed include: Civil and Criminal Forfeiture Procedure; Select Criminal Forfeiture Forms; Select Federal Asset Forfeiture Statutes; Asset forfeiture and money laundering resource directory; and Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 (CAFRA).

I know I'm screaming at a wall here, but need I remind y'all that this is supposed to be our country? That this piece of ground (yes, yes, stolen from a number of folks by another number of folks, the totality of which constitutes "us") is our home, and that the people we've put in power to make sure the roads go from one logical place to another and to keep Canada from invading are, truly, our employees.

If you were a biz owner, would you be cool with your employees hiding info from you, claiming that it wasn't "appropriate" for your use? Yeah, I know, that's simplistic, but FER FUCK'S SAKE, IT'S OUR GODDAMNED COUNTRY. I think a few firings are in order. Muy Pronto. Who's the HR person around here, anyway?
