PATRIOT Act Renewed

Parts of it, anyway, according to Antiwar.com. A few provisions of the act were set to expire Sunday, but congress rushed through the renewal as part of- of all things- a MediCare bill.

No civil rights protections were included in the bill. Just goes to show that once civil rights protections are gone, they're gone. I hope I'm wrong on that but I don't expect any civil rights protections added when this issue comes before Congress again.

Look at Sotomayor

and you can see where the status of the bill of rights is heading. To the dumpster.

Just look at the crazy anti-panhandling law in Arcata which would have the effect of criminalizing the Salvation Army santa. And that City Council passed an anti-Patriot Act resolution. The corruption and hypocrisy with these fake-ass liberals never stops.
