OH!!! So you don't know either? LOL!!!!
Oh my, you really stumped me. Now I feel sooooo dumb! Ha! NOT! I'll throw you a tiny bone. I normally don't do that, because I want people to get off their lazy asses and look up stuff for themselves. But no, they'll listen to the drippings that rolls off rush limpballs ass, and take it as gosple. I'll ask you something simple first. Do you think the USA in the USA PATRIOT act stands for the United States of America? If you do, you are a prime igmo of the type that the propaganda mills love to trowel out their sludge to. I'll now give you some tiny stuff:
FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION: Government may monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity to assist terror investigations.
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION: Government has closed once-public immigration hearings, has secretly detained hundreds of people without charges, and has encouraged bureaucrats to resist public records questions.
FREEDOM OF SPEECH: Government may prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they tell anyone that the government subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation.
RIGHT TO LEGAL REPRESENTATION: Government may monitor federal prison jailhouse conversations between attorneys and clients, and deny lawyers to Americans accused of crimes.
FREEDOM FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHES: Government may search and seize Americans' papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror investigation.
RIGHT TO A SPEEDY AND PUBLIC TRIAL: Government may jail Americans indefinitely without a trial.
RIGHT TO LIBERTY: Americans may be jailed without being charged or being able to confront witnesses against them.
Want more, there are lots, lots more. So get off you lazy asses and learn the truth instead of just parroting what Faux and crew, or world nut daily spews out! It is amazing what you can see, if you will just look! But I don't expect you will. It's much easier being a mindless hypnotized faux stooge!
Prosecute the bush cartel/crime family!
