    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice of this meeting is given under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. App. (Pub.

    During the meeting, the DHS Chief Privacy Officer will provide an update on the activities of the DHS Privacy Office. Invited speakers will discuss the Presidential transition and the Privacy Office priorities for the future. The Subcommittees will update the Committee on their current work. A tentative agenda is posted on the Privacy Advisory Committee Web site at www.dhs.gov/privacy.

      Although, I personally am so far to the left that even the democrats appear to me to be “right-wing,” I consider myself to be a strict constitutionalist. It is my opinion that since its inception there has been an organized and systematic assault by the conservatives in the United States (and in the other industrialized nations) on the civil liberties written into the US Constitution. The “War on Drugs”; “War on Terror”; “War on Communism” and a host of other wars waged by the right wing are really nothing more than a War on People–an excuse to erode civil rights to the point of non-existence.
