HEY! WHO LET THIS HAPPEN! WHO LET THE PATRIOT ACT GET RENEWED?!?!

What just happened here?

I was away for 2 weeks, and this occurred? How did this happen?

Who in their right minds would thing that the Patriot Pact should be repassed? Who would even consider it as an option?

Why hasn't this gained any news attention? Oh right, with all the coverage given to the new Harry Potter book and all of the time focused on the new Supreme Court Nominee, nobody bothered? It was the perfect time for those wily and tricky House Representatives managed to do it. Now the greatest barrier to the Act's renewal has been passed. The Senate's committee's are both tied up with Roberts and already have approved not one, but TWO versions of the Act. And President Bush won't object to anything with the word "Patriot" in it.

Act now. Spread the news. Incite people, get them to yell at their senators. Get them to do something. We need a call to change, and we need it now.

  1. In an age when corporations influence the senators the most. I doubt a bunch of people have any real political power anymore.
