The New “Voluntary”:Â Bears a striking resemblance to the old “Involuntary”

I’d like to apologize for not posting so much as of late.Â There’s just been so much going on and I’ve had some health concerns.Â Though I haven’t gone to the doctor yet, I’m fairly certain I am in the early stages of Alzheimer’s.Â I base this on the fact that when I saw this story, I couldn’t remember what country I was living in:
Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies escorted a man believed to be Nakoula Basseley Nakoula to an awaiting car. The man declined to answer questions on his way out and wore a hat and a scarf over his face. He kept his hands in the pockets of a winter coat.Â
Sheriff’s officials could not be reached by The Times, but department spokesman Steve Whitmore told KNBC News that deputies assisting the federal probation department took Nakoula to the sheriff’s substation in Cerritos for interviewing.
You know, they told me when Mitt Romney was elected President that controversial filmmakers who blasphemed the god of violent, religious extremists would be met with midnight show raids by brownshirted government agents.Â And they were right.
I guess the Alzheimer’s made me forget they warned me about that too.Â Either that or I am living in Slaughterhouse Five.
