Here's another child of the PATRIOT act (via Ars Technica via Wired News).

... thanks to the PATRIOT act, banks are spending billions on highly sophisticated, government-mandated anti-money laundering (AML) software that will track every last transaction of every last customer in order to build up individual customer profiles and look for "suspicious" activity. And when they find some suspicious activity, they're going to want an explanation out of you, regardless of whether or not you fit any sort of terrorist profile

To add insult to injury, the government should make this into a screen saver... something like Tax Evasion at Home. Then you're own computer could do the figuring, report you and fine you automatically. Sweet.
