ACLU has filed one of the law suits over the Patriot Act. 5$ is the minimum donation to become a card carrying member. I have to say it is money well spent. Anyone that cares about their civil liberties should join. On an interesting note more people have joined this year than any other time in the ACLU's History. Think Americans are ticked off at the Patriot Act?
It's a joke that it's even called the "Patriot Act". How patriotic, everyone hand over your liberties, we'll spy on you quakers and green peace activists, while we bring the real terrorists in through our US ports. So we can scare yah some more and youll give up all yur freedums.

I can't believe it. First the conservatives want to make Vietnam into some heroic effort betrayed by the liberals. Now they want to make McCarthy into a hero.

Disgusting.
I agree Darwins Stepchild it is disgusting.

Whats even more disgusting is that George Bush and every senator, that voted for his budget plan are STILL betraying Vietnam Veterans. Tri Care Prime is at the minimum doubleing the premiums veterans pay starting in the next few months (a substantial increase). My stepfather served 25 years in the Air Force and was in vietnam,he more than earned this medical insurance, how nice of our government to charge the sh*t out of men who already served this country for something that should be free to them in the first place. Wonder how veterans of Iraq will be treated. I know lots of Vietnam vets that are really pissed with this president and at all the conservatives backing him.

Yes. More like the Unpatriot Act. This is just another example of Republican doublespeak. Same as Defense of Marriage. They have become really good at using hot-button language to get their way.

BTW, where in Arkansas are you. I am just west of Tulsa.

<quoted text>WOW,, is the patriot act going to protect you from women having the right to vote, interracial marriages, and anything else a bigoted prejudiced conservative can think of? You give republicans a bad name.
Who in their right mind would want to be a REP or a DEM for that fact,the days of the good ole party are nearing an end. Everybody has seen what the DEM do, BJ's in the White house. Conservative, I don't think so. Just Patriotic, not a whinning little trailer monkey. How is your double wide, by the way.
NOW that the PAT-ACT has passed what are you mouth munchers going to bitch about now. Somebody wants to take away my passifyer. You sheep bangers can't do anything right.

Oh to the other dumb asses who get the urg to reply, go waste somebody elses time you hosers aren't worth 1 more letter.

More insults and profanity, I see. Well, if you are really going away, thank you. We are all tired of your oh-so-thought-provoking repertoire.

Yes. Fayetteville is a nice town. UofA is pretty cool. Thought about going there at one time. Went to OSU instead.

Fayetteville has a nice liberal additude. Just moved from south of San Antonio TX thought I was going to suffocate from the severe Republican additude there or be lynched for my liberalism. I go to Tulsa often I have friends and family there.

7/12 years later and unfortunetly the Patriot Act is still in place. The proverbial case of gave them an inch and they took a mile.

But "the PATRIOT ACT" did it's job with it's name:PATRIOT. Without that name/label of the "Patriot" Act more would've spoken out and/or voted against it. The word was purposely and strategically placed in the law. Much like a form of subliminal advertising. But the arm chair granny voters/patriots or sheeple ate it up.

Setting aside the 'purpose' of the act without chucking words around like ' patriot ' or ' security ' this "act" would've been long gone now. But the kittens in the press and legislature show themselves to be the same blind followers the sheeple already are.
