    I know this is not a current news event but I am still upset about this. I really believe we lost freedoms with this. I don’t have money but the fact that transactions can be monitored and one must use federal forms to move more than 10,000.00, well it isn’t right. Also the government can listen to phone conversations and view emails without a warrant – wow

    This still pisses me off – does anyone else feel this way or am I just ‘big talking’

    Oh…ahhh… just one more thing:
    There is nothing patriotic about the patriot act!

    Transfer a smaller amount and the government still held it awhile.

    wow ! how refreshing you are !

    you should have grave concerns for any "chiping away" of your "capatalist" rights that you are guaranteed as an "american citizen". this is why the idea of eighteen thousand more i.r.s. agents is disconcerting to most conservatives. this can't be good. we are en route to the farm (communism). luckily pelosi is gone. obama and reid will succumb relatively soon. this is the will of the majority of voters.
    liberals distill "civil rights" and use them capriciously.
    watch the movie "metropolis". i am currently working on a piece called "barrak, nancy and the imperial u.s. government", for my blog. liberals will try to twist the words of lincoln, and washington, franklin and adams and jefferson, to try to make them sound socialist, believe me, they were not.

    national security from terrorism is a different story.

    i find your approach to be delightful ! welcome to the club, i "rep" you

    The fact that they had to sell it as "Patriot Act" should have tipped you off

    Doesn't matter....it is still a surrender of our personal freedoms. It was passed during post 9-11 hysteria and cooler heads should have prevailed by now

    Democrats disagree with you and have passed it every time it came up for renewal so much for your claim that Democrats are cooler heads.

    I keep asking this, what rights have we lost? I can't think of any.
