We don't need no stinkin' Civil Liberties!

Looks like the Patriot Act is being renewed. Booooooooooo!

The President is also trying very hard to make it illegal for the press to make critical statements regarding the administration using information that was leaked by an insider. The funny thing is that it is the press that will be help responsible. The Sedition Act was trashed in 1921 on the grounds hat it was unconstiutional, but Bush wants it back.

In New Mexico, a nurse was recently investigated on grounds of Sedition. Read the article here. This is getting spooky!

Special thank to The (liberal) Girl Next Door for this!

Passage is important to protect us from terrorist acts

House Judiciary Committee Chairman F. James Sensenbrenner,
Jr. (R-Wis.), issued the following statement regarding the Senate’s overwhelming
approval today by a 89-to-10 margin of the PATRIOT Act conference report:
“Today, the Senate faced a decision whether we continued to wage the war on terror or
whether we retreated to a pre-9/11 security approach. Thankfully, the overwhelming
majority of the Senate voted to extend the most critical anti-terrorism legislation enacted
since 9/11. The 89-to-10 bipartisan vote illustrates an understanding that the PATRIOT
Act has kept us safer while protecting the civil liberties we cherish.

This is complete horseshit! You want to protect us from terrorism, strengthen our borders. The Patriot Act does litlle to protect us from terrorism, but it does take away from the civil liberties that we cherish. WAKE UP!!!!

She should not be using a work computer for her personal vendetta

According to an Editor & Publisher story, Laura Berg recommended criminal charges for top officials, and urged public action to remove them from office. She also declared that "This country needs to get out of Iraq now ... [or] many more of us will be facing living hell in these times."

After her letter appeared, the V.A. seized her office computer and launched an investigation.

Sp what you're saying is that speaking your mind is now a criminal act. Writting a letter to a newspaper is just cause to launch a criminal investigation.

So much for freedom!!!!

She said WHAT? Oh my god! How can the republic survive such blatant disrespect for Dear Leader? Where's Senator McCarthy and his Brokeback attorney, Roy Cohn to right this wrong?

In the good old days, we could have a witch like this drowned or burned at the stake for such heresy. But in today's liberal-infested PC climate, I guess we'll have to let her live.

Freedom of speech? What kind of goddamn hippie thought up that pinko commie idea?
