    Well... actually it's a good thing that provisions of the Patriot Act were extended but it's also somewhat pharisaical, two-faced or if you like hypocritical of Democrats to embrace the provisions after their outrage and nonsencicle fury over the Bush years. Ah.. the outrage reduced to peeping and blank reticence by their faithful frowning followers.

    Wire taps... eh.. no problem now...:lol: .... ( well.. I think it's funny)

    ---------------------------------

    WASHINGTON | President Barack Obama has signed a one-year extension of several provisions in the nation’s main counterterrorism law, the Patriot Act.

    Three sections of the Patriot Act that stay in force will:

    •Authorize court-approved roving wiretaps that permit surveillance on multiple phones.

    •Allow court-approved seizure of records and property in anti-terrorism operations.

    •Permit surveillance against a so-called lone wolf, a non-U.S. citizen engaged in terrorism who may not be part of a recognized terrorist group.

    Parts of Patriot Act are extended - KansasCity.com

    It PROVES they were just being Partisan. It also proves those on this board that are not STILL complaining were partisan hacks.

    What parts were extended? As I understand it, some sections of the patriot act did not reduce the privacy of US citizens.

    That is NOT the argument presented during the Bush years. All of it was extended except the small parts ruled unconstitutional in court.

    See this is why I voted libertarian, the man was very clear what he'd do to the patriot act (shoot it, burn it, spread the ashes to the corners of the Earth, something like that).

    Also I didn't live in a swing state so it's not like my vote would've made a difference.

    The Patriot Act passed in the Senate 98 to 1 in 2001.

    And ever since you retards had been screaming bloody murder. Claiming it violated the Constitution and denied people their rights. Obama gets elected and NOT one whimper of complaint as it is renewed overwhelmingly by the Democrats in Congress. Pretty sure the Democrats renewed it under Bush as well.

    So the Democrats passed it overwhelmingly and renewed it overwhelmingly and the revised history is that the Democrats opposed it overwhelmingly.

    Got it.

    Of course, there is documented evidence of CONSERVATIVES 'pissing and moaning' about it:

    Wait, let me get this straight.... YOU CLAIM Democrats have ALWAYS been for the Patriot act? Is that your claim?
