The Patriot App – for Government Snitches
By on December 17th, 2010

It’s now easier than ever to become a government snitch. This iPhone app, Patriot App, gives you almost instant access to the following US agencies:

  • FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation)
  • EPA (Environmental Protection Agency)
  • GAO (Government Accountability Office)
  • CDC (Centers for Disease Control)

I don’t know if you’d call this patriotic though. Most Americans value their personal privacy, and the thought of their neighbors instantly reporting them to Uncle Sam is scary. It’s already easy enough to call the local authorities, why do we need this? Have you ever heard of 911?

The name of this app will surely remind people about the controversial Patriot Act, which allows the US Government broad powers to bypass Constitutionally protected rights.

It’s one more sign of our times. Privacy is becoming a joke, but I’m not laughing.

Quote: They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. Benjamin Franklin
