Whoa, stop the press!!

Asked Sunday about criticism of the increased surveillance, Mr. Bloomberg said: “We live in a world where we have to have a balance. We can’t just say everybody can go everyplace and do anything they want.”
Really? But I thought this was the land of the free??

Apparently this man thinks that it's the home of the surveilled, and that it's totally cool to go about your day as long as there's an underpaid goon in a room somewhere suspiciously watching your every move; all while on your dime.

This form of thinking is a startling reality that has smitten one too many Americans. You can't be trusted to live in society without someone watching you suspiciously because it's just too dangerous now, as opposed to, say, anytime last century or the one before, or even five or six hundred years ago. Things are only now getting out of hand.
He added, “Do you really want to work in a building that doesn’t have security?”
Yes, douchebag, I do. I'm pretty sure that the majority of Americans feel that way too; although, admittedly, probably not as many on your end.

It's crazy to me that this guy has risen to such prominence. How do people like this get attention? Do Americans really feel like they need someone to take care of them at every step?
