Do you remember when the United States used to be the land of the free? Well, if the Patriot Act II [link] ever gets passed, that’ll be a thing of the past. It is amaizng to me how quickly the justice department is working to try and strip all of our freedoms away from us. Even worse, they are using the spector of the September 11th tragedy to do this. I can’t decide whether to be disgusted or terrified. Or both.
I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: These are very scary times.
