BBC NEWS | Entertainment | US TV fails to save Private Ryan - what is “obscene”? If ABC affiliates don’t know, then who the hell does?

Add these to the secret “law” that says Americans must produce identification to travel within the U.S. on an airplane. That says Americans aren’t free to travel to Cuba or other countries the government outlaws.
