    I read the book and watched the movie in high school. For class none the less. Hardly remember it except for some quote about the ol in out in out.

    Big Brother is more real than I could have ever imagined it.
    Thought police/political correctness/hate crimes, just scary.

    Orwell said the TV would be the eyes for Big Brother. He got that part of it wrong, it's the computer.

    Red tells the truth. I never thought I would live to fear my country's government. :eek::mad:

    The Thought Police is political correctness.

    Pre crime technology here (says Chicken Little) :eek:

    Tin hat nonsense, we're not even close yet. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't be prepared!

    I saw a poll yesterday on Fox News that says that only 9% of the people who voted for Obama regretted voting for him. If that's true and he's re-elected then 3 years would be a stretch. If war breaks out in the Middle East before next summer and Damascus disappears, causing great fear and global perplexity, to include suspending the presidential election, it's a no brainer.

    Curiously,the Hurt/Burton film actually followed the book with an amazing degree of accuracy.As I recall,they even changed the release date so it could be up for an Oscar nomination following Burton's death.
