When the full force of it comes into our lives, believe me, it will not put anyone to sleep!
ya know what? i really don't think americans want to know the actual wording and what exactly the patriot acts says it can do. i read what a "terrorist" was and what they consider "terrorist acts"...and believe me, many americans can be arrested under the patriot act as terrorists for normal crimes against society that would otherwise be covered under civil laws.
I don't think Congress has read it! And obviously, Bush is more interested in 'catching' environmentalists and peace activists as well as Democrats than people who work against America. After all, if he were after them, he would be after his own party.
Not only do Americans not want to know what is in the Patriot Act, they don't want to know the voting record of their Congresscritters. In fact, many don't have a clue who their Congresscritters are. Americans work at the job Bush has given them--they shop. The ones who can still afford to at least. And the Rs don't care about the others.
Bushcons who come on this board and like to poke us with sticks are doing their job--keeping us distracted from working FOR a decent and caring America. They do not realize this is not our only activity, and they are only a distraction for a very short time. I do not know one person who has been tempted to change into becoming one of them by their tactics.
I guess they have nothing else to do, eh?
