On Activist Post: Citizen Spy Recruitment Program Launches in U.S. Hotels

America is a fascist state, and anyone who thinks otherwise just hasn't waked up yet. 9/11 -- in spite of what one believes about who was responsible -- was the impetus for all the illegal, immoral, and fascist actions we are now experiencing. Pay with cash? Illegal in Louisiana. Carrying around cash? It can be legally taken from you in Tennessee, Florida, and elsewhere. Look nervous? You're hauled off in the airport for questioning and searching. Miscarried? You can be arrested. And so it goes. DHS has been working hard on its "If you see something, say something" campaign propaganda, and now its made its way into hotels: Activist Post: Citizen Spy Recruitment Program Launches in U.S. Hotels.

All this is about control. Control of our movements. If you refuse to fly (or cannot, because you're on a "no fly" list) you're suspect. If you carry cash while traveling -- independent, say by car or RV, etc. -- you're the victim of state police thugs. If you want to pay with cash, well, you can't. It's all about making it harder to be off the grid, even if it's a little bit, because no one can ever truly get off the grid. If they make it hard for you, it's easier for them to control and to track. And that's what it's all about. Seemingly unrelated incidents here and there, every day, across this country, that many people just don't pay attention to. The little bit that goes by is filed under a vague "Oh, the good fight against terrorism,..." "The drug war; well we can't have that going on near our schools," "I have nothing to hide." Under the guise of feeling protected, secure, safe, we're encouraged to spy on each other. Everyone's suspect. Report to the authorities. So that not only the person you've reported is on the list, so are you.

From the Activist Post:
Homeland Security has been working closely with hotels on many levels as private partners in the war on terror, as part of the expanding If You See Something, Say Something program. Manuals such as the 84-page, Protective Measures Guide for the U.S. Lodging Industry (pdf) have been sent out to teach owners and staff how to properly spot potential terrorists. Typical suspicious behavior includes paying with cash and "insisting on privacy" among a plethora of other dangers.
Paying with cash: suspect. That's assuming the hotel even takes cash, a lot do not. The article has a video clip of the DHS propaganda campaign, which will be aired on hotel room TV sets to encourage us to snitch on each other.
