    A new iPhone App with the misleading name ‘PatriotApp’ attempts to draw on the power of the patriot movement, turning smartphone users into a gigantic snitch network.
    You might think an app with such a patriotic name might have useful functions like a pocket constitution or quotes from our forefathers. But contrary to the services one might expect, this app allows users to report any ‘suspicious’ behavior directly linking them with top government agencies.
    Much like the new DHS program ‘If you see something, say something’ this app is meant to turn average citizens into a network of spies feeding information back to the federal government.
    Citizen Concepts, a company formed by insiders from DHS, defines the use of such an app on their homepage:
    Citizen Concepts announces the launch of PatriotAppTM, the world’s first iPhone application that empowers citizens to assist government agencies in creating safer, cleaner, and more efficient communities via social networking and mobile technology. This app was founded on the belief that citizens can provide the most sophisticated and broad network of eyes and ears necessary to prevent terrorism, crime, environmental negligence, or other malicious behavior.
    Simply download, report (including pictures) and submit information to relevant government agencies, employers, or publish incident data to social network tools.
    Key Features:
    Integrated into Federal Agencies points of contacts
    Custom integration with user employers
    Fully integrated with Social Media (Facebook, Twitter)
    Multiple menus and data fields
    View FBI Most Wanted
    Simple graphical user interface

    Enable citizens to record and communicate:
    National Security, Suspicious activities, Crime
    Government Waste
    Environmental Crime or possible violations
    White collar crime
    Workplace harassment, discrimination, or other violations
    Public Health concerns

    PatriotApp encourages active citizen participation in the War on Terror and in protecting their families and surrounding communities.

    An app like this is meant to solidify the climate of fear in which our leaders want us to exist. The threat of terrorism must be palpable in order for the ‘War on Terror’ to be justified and to validate all the extreme measures instituted in its name.

    If he did, he would have created this app, or at least forced someone to create it for him.

    Typical Socialist ploy..... turning words against their normal meaning.

    "Liberal" used to be someone with an open mind......

    "Progressive" used to be someone who took society FORWARDS.......

    "Smart" used to something rather intelligent......

    "Conservative" used to be someone who valued and fostered the good old constructive values our nation was built on.......
