The Unpatriotic Patriot Act

This is mostly a continuation of the blog debates started with a Dixie Chicks post, of all, Could Bush have mismanaged this war any worse?

We always say that history repeats itself but optimistically say that the bad parts of our history, well, those we would never do again. We vowed after World War II when the US Government rounded up Japanese Americans and put them in internment camps, we as outraged Americans would never allow that to happen again.

Oops...Why is this still being allowed? Why are there not more angry voices? Is it because it doesn't affect us?

Part I:

Part II:

Part III:

This is disturbing and outrageous. If those in power can just decide to and then implement ridiculous "policies"...can just act how they wish without regard for civil liberties and basic freedom...can just do what they want regardless of the rightness of their actions...

it's unconscionable.

what kind of society have we created where just a few people have that kind of power? where they can act - illegally and immorally - and without consequence?

and what can we do about it?

Great post man. I wish I knew how to answer Nicole's question, but I don't.

The first step in the right direction is for good people to speak up and speak out.

I do not know if іt's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your blog. It appears as if some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my web browser because I've had
this hаppen before. Thanks
