Yeah, I'm feeling this.  My dad works for a regional federal agency which
runs dams, and formerly worked for the Navy (in the old Kellogg sanitarium
and at the Oakland base); my great-uncle was one of the NSA's first
employees, we think (he had been in the OSS, which was a thing some people
were doing at that time).  Both of them were liberal enough to get in
trouble with the "silent majority".  So in truth, traditionally outside the
CPUSA (and black-radical) fold there hasn't been a problem with the federal
government; their position was that you couldn't do anything if you tried
(which is more or less true), and if you didn't try you didn't deserve to be
in trouble.  Homeland Security is evil, though, and not because the guys are
bad but because the thing's run a like a business in competition with the
left; they pull all kinds of Microsoft-style tricks to discredit anybody to
the left of the DLC (I think).  It's bad, it really is.
