No….its not Martin Luther King, Jr. Day,  but in light of recent events under the growing iron-handed rule of Obama (a.k.a. Barry Sorotero), we have become a people victimized by the politics of division and hatred.  So, in the spirit of freedom and liberty I felt it was necessary to remind all who take the time to view this post how a TRUE leader speaks and shows his character.

Conversely, in 1963 when Dr. King gave this historic speech, it had been approximately 100 years since the first great movement for true freedom for all men and races began in this nation.  In 1963 much had changed since The United States of America held a great number of it’s sons and daughters in bondage and misery…but much had not changed – the hearts of men;  hardened and cold against their brothers and sisters after ages of separation and callousness. Dr. King wondered and prayed to Almighty God asking “How long….??””  How long would men’s hearts remain hard and cold.  He pleaded with the nation to see with new eyes and love with new hearts those whom they had previously judged as different and unworthy and separate.

It has been 50 years since Dr. King gave his great “I have a dream” speech on the steps of The Lincoln Memorial,  and I am sure the spirit of Dr. King still asks……”How Long”?

Using the vague criteria of “law enforcement purposes”, the United States has more than 200 million Americans filed away in various facial recognition databases.  If you have a driver’s license or any other government photo ID, your face is probably one of them.

The Washington Post reported:  Law enforcement use of such facial searches is blurring the traditional boundaries between criminal and non-criminal databases, putting images of people never arrested in what amount to perpetual digital lineups. The most advanced systems allow police to run searches from laptop computers in their patrol cars and offer access to the FBI and other federal authorities.
