    Strange, I would have taken you for a pro-republican (with the many Obama-bashing threads you made, you seem to give that impression).

    Agreed, Democrats too didn't read the Patriot Acts as so many seemed convinced it meant something other than what it did.

    Shouldn't their be a 'law' that members of Congress at least need to have a synopsis rendered by their staff and read?

    Or just have laws that aren't 500-700 pages where it can be summed up in two sentences.

    Though I agree there should be such a law, would make things better by far. Literally, I could of thrown in about 65% through the US Patriot Act about how Democracy is done with and nobody probably would of saw it.

    Not to worry, ACORN wasn't mentioned in the bill. That was more of the spin from your right wing politicos in DC.

    Vitter on tv after opposing the bill then said he needed the weekend to read it.

    I find it hard to accept that so many of them don't read the fucking bills or at least have someone on their staff that they trust give them a good synopsis of these bills.
