Big Brother and The Police State

Eric Holder, in his best rhetoric is trying to make people "aware" that the next wave of terroism will come from within. American Citizens are turning against the government. These people are radicals, or so says Holder. Maybe they are just afraid of the impending Police State and want to be sure and prepare themselves for their own defense.
Last night, while watching a somewhat popular remake of a 1960's classic TV show, Hawaii 5-0, I realized that the TV watching populace is being regularly conditioned to accept the Police State. Characters made statements like "you have a badge, you can go anywhere" and "he's trying to leave the island, I'll call Department of Homeland Security and put him on the No Fly List". How is utilizing a Federal Para Military Law Enforcement Agency, designed to protect from foriegn attackers appropriate for state law enforcement issues? Even worse was the Police Captain calling his girlfriend on an aircraft carrier and got her to redirect a spy sattelite in order to follow a suspect. Hmm, redirecting military assets for Law Enforcement. That is in direct conflict with the Posse Commitatus Act and Unconsitutional. Now, I understand that this is a television show and not reality, however, it seems to be a means of getting people to accept being controlled in every aspect by the government.
Are the Holder story and the Hawaii 5-0 commentary connected? Probably not, outside of my own little head, but sure is interesting that the head of the Department of Justice is telling us that they are going to be looking more closely at US Citizens and TV is conditioning us to accept the prying eyes of Big Brother, combine that with the TSA's over reaching searches, the recently announced DC Metro "random bag searches", warrantless wiretapping, GPS locators on cars, and the list goes on and on. Your civil rights are nearly nonexistant. Don't give up anything more.
Unless the next time you leave your home you don't mind hearing "Papers Please".
