    I had complained about a local ordinance that put Sudafed and other sinus medication behind the counter and limited the number of times you could purchase the stuff....

    Well, it looks like it's going to become a national policy

    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/storie...ME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2006-03-06-23-35-09

    This will be the first time that the Patriot Act will affect me personally, although not much, since I don't buy 300 Sudafeds a month (the proposed limit).... I probably buy about 300 Sudafeds a year....

    That having been said, I still support the Patriot Act....

    Mr Bush, we who are about to sneeze, salute you!!!!

    It's annoying me more and more and more. Went to get some 2 days ago.

    Name, address, city, state, zip, drivers license, and phone number. Told them my # is non-published - they were going to refuse to sell it to me. One lousy box of 24 tablets, which will probably last me a month. Hmph.

    Surprised they didn't want a fingerprint.

    They'll probably make it so that you'll need a prescription for it....

    Then I'll just go back to Allegra-D, which was prescription anyway. At least, I can call that in, go thru the drive-thru, and be on my way without filling anything out. :)

    This is exactly what many opponates of the patriot act feared.
    Why tag this (drugs) to the act? Where's the DEA? What about the war on drugs? Is this an admission that it ain't working? So now, we the mighty Father Government, your protector from terror will protect you from meth...that's just in case you may ever want to make some, otherwise we think you okay!

    This is pure BULLSHIT!! This government is out of control!!

    Oh, but I thought it was just for terrorists...

    Surprise, surprise, welcome to the new America.

    All crime is now terrorism.

    Pot dealers? - Terrorists

    Topless bar owners? - Terrorists

    Selling knock off rubix cubes? - Terrorism

    All of these examples of real cases.

    ...and we know what happens to terrorists. Their rights are stripped, no due process, no 6th ammendment, no 8th ammendment, nothing.

    How about our friends in the UK?

    The London Guardian reports today... (link)

    "Mr Gifford said expanding the use of technology for tracking the movements of cars could lead police to people who had committed other offences in the same way that Al Capone was eventually caught through his income tax evasion. He claimed that for greater safety and "the greater good of society", most people would be prepared to accept "a slight reduction of our liberty"."

    How about this?

    Wear a T-shirt saying, "Flooded by Katrina! Forgotten by FEMA! What's Next, Mr. Bush?"

    - Get a visit from Homeland Security. (link)

    How much further will we let it go?

    As I always say, government, in the hands of corrupt men, is the single most dangerous tool to be weilded against mankind.

    This is about control, pure and simply, and American is dying.

    If you think this is bad, just wait for Patriot Act 2. Just wait for the implantable microchips, the surveillance cameras around every corner, faceless, nameless beurocrats watching you everyhwere you go.

    Or maybe we should just submit to them, afterall they have shown us their intentions are nothing but for your own good, right?

    My friends, we are in grave danger. Why is Halliburton (with $365 million thanks to Homeland Security) building detention centers for "illegal immigrants," or for, according to the New York times, in the "event of a natural disaster or for new programs that require additional detention space."

    This is not about republican or democrat, this is about liberty or enslavement, freedom or slavery.

    Break the paradigm and stand up for your what your country truly stands for and give a resounding "WE WILL NOT SUBMIT!"

    Let's see, let me guess... because they plan on detaining more illegal immigrants? Isn't that what libs have been criticizing Bush for? Not doing anything about illegal immigration? Well, then there you have, perhaps that answers your question.
