ONE GOVERNOR SECRETLY SIGNS HIS STATE UP FOR THE MATRIX DATABASE without even bothering to mention it to the legislature (Utah). Another (in Georgia) swears his state has stopped selling its citizens -- then is discovered four months later to still be doing so. It's always interesting that so many of these things that are "for our own good" have to be foisted upon us via secrecy and deception.
Still, the MATRIX datamining project continues to march jackbootedly on -- aided by politicians and entrepreneurs who try to wrap those bootheels in cotton fog so we won't hear them coming.
