"Flag Day" – Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

I created this piece for today's June 14, 2015 anniversary of Flag Day.

The words are a condensed version of what President Obama said on June 7, 2013 after Edward Snowden revealed that the United States Government is violating the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution:

"if anybody in government wanted to go further than just that top-line [meta]data and wanted to listen to [the recorded] phone call, they’d have to go back to a federal judge"

"And so not only does that court authorize the initial gathering of data, but I want to repeat, if anybody in government wanted to go further than just that top-line data and wanted to, for example, listen to Jackie Calmes’s phone call, they’d have to go back to a federal judge and — and — and indicate why, in fact, they were doing further — further probing."

The only way they can "go further" and "listen to" the "phone call" that corresponds to "that top-line" metadata is if they recorded the phone call.

Yet despite Obama stating that the US Government is recording every phone call made by Americans, neither the press nor the citizens of this country have voiced outrage over this blatant ongoing violation of the Fourth Amendment.

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.


I created this using GIMP 2.8.14.
