Luckily If You Are Buried in Arlington, Big Brother Obama Can't Find You

As someone who is a huge fan of cemeteries, I was shocked when I saw this comic because I hadn't heard anything about this. While I am amazed that an error of this magnitude was allowed to happen at probably the most taken care of cemetery in the world, I am wondering if this is a map error. I am not seeing anything in the articles that I am reading (MSNBC and NPR) that specifically say that people are misburied, just that the maps are not accurate and that soldiers are not marked or mis-marked. While I agree, get it fixed, I think there are more important these Senators could be spending their time on--like the economy and our two wars. You can always tell when a Senator's job is difficult when they choose to focus their efforts are getting more women's restrooms than stuff that actually matters.
Let me get this straight: When George W. Bush authorizes the NSA to tap phones illegally and gather information on the library books you check out, it's all for the sake of freedom but when Barack Obama wants to "make it easier for the FBI to compel companies to turn over records of an individual's Internet activity without a court order if agents deem the information relevant to a terrorism or intelligence investigation", it's George Orwell's 1984 coming true? That makes sense. Not very good sense but a little sense. I don't agree with it, I don't need my websites monitored, email checked or anything else because I am not a terrorist. You know who needs their stuff monitored? Actual or suspected terrorists.
