    so any comments on the recent new of the firings of 8 federal prosecutors and the FBI "abusing its power in snooping on Americans under the anti-terror USA Patriot Act."

    I believe the outcry over the patriot act in the first place was against exactly what is happening now...
    opinions?

    I'd rather live under the constant threat of terrorist attack than have my own government spying on me.

    There is always a chance of people overstepping their bounds, doesn't matter if it's the Patriot Act, or the Bay of Pigs. The fact is these people allegedly broke the law and are now under fire just as they should be. This just shows that the system of checks and balances in the Patriot Act still work.

    EDIT: Saying we should can the Patriot Act because people abused it is like saying we should ban firearms because criminals shoot people.

    You get all your news from The View.

    I was in the ER this morning and had to watch that shit. Meredith whatsher name was getting absolutely pulverized... just like I do

    She states a simple statement and they respond "BUT IT FEELS SO WRONG!" and "IF YOU DON'T HATE BUSH THEN YOU HATE FREEDOM!" horseshit.

    We aren't abusing shit. They are abusing us, each other. They are torturing people in numbers that would melt your tiny little mind. They are blowing up innocent people. We are fighting them, and doing very well

    I don't give a shit if these people are given Habeus Corpus. They aren't US Citizens, they have no rights. Sorry, that's how it is. And putting underwear on your head isn't torture. It's an insult

    We treat our prisoners, everyday and everywhere, better than their own countries treat them

    And that is relevant to the FBI using the PATRIOT act to illegally gain information how? This isn't about torture... this is about gathering information in an illegal manner *HERE*

    It should also be noted that as terrorists aren't legal enemy combatants they aren't protected under the Geneva Conventions. In fact the people who lay claim that America is abusing these illegal combatants have generally have never visited these camps they are so against, and couldn't even come close to resiting the laws under the Geneva Conventions. They usually just make up what they think the rules are and then shout "Civil Rights Abuse", much like illegal immigrants shout "racism" because they no there's no intellectual counterpart to their argument...

    but this isn't about abusing captives

    It's a saying, get a fuckin grip. The loony left is full of cute catch phrases and colloqiualisms that seem to make one guilty for thinking differently. That "Those who will trade freedom for security deserve neither" dripping loosely formed buffalo shit that I hear all day long from the left.

    It's neither. We are very free. IF you have a history of public demonstration against the goverment, make mention that you want to take down a plane, or have been noticed by the FBI as being a general hazard to the population, they track you. They tracked you since the 60s. The Patriot Act changes nothing.

    Give me a difference today, that wasn't there pre-911. Except now we can share info between departments to bring these guys into custody. That's the only functional difference. The rest is "Be Popular by bashing bush" and this anti-american insanity that is gripping everyone.

    Its the rants of the elusive species... right wing moonbat. An offshoot of the more known barking moonbat. Their population seems to be increasing looking at data from the past few years.

    Even under the WORST conditions of the patriot act:

    Unbridled phone tapping without permission
    masked and government controlled media
    Cameras at every street corner, facial recognition
    no-knock search warrants
    unexplained random searches
    Parcel and Package searches
    Public searches
    record locking
    and internet censorship and tracking....



    .... Look no further than the UK, France, Spain, Japan, China, Mexico, all Norwegian countries, Italy, Germany, All eastern bloc countries, Russia, Australia, New Zealand.... The list goes on.


    This new form of enforcement is lightly becoming like the rest of these foul countries, and that is something I am not happy about. But everyone in the US has been SCREAMING to be more like Europe and Asia, with their free healthcare, "equal opportunities(HA)" and superior methods.

    Fuck that. America is still the freest place on earth.

    And if I recall correctly, it's the democrats and loonies that want to go door to door taking firearms away from citizens....

    And since you guys seem to operate on catch phrases and oblique statements - Choke on this one: "The only people that fear an armed populace are Tyrants and Criminals"

    even if there are problems the fact remains that when used legally the patriot act will save lives, saying "I told you so" when someone abuses it is pointless. Show me one political/govt agency that has NEVER broken the law

    thought so
