    I am STILL waiting for someone to point out all the rights we lost with this legislation. And I have been asking since I got here.

    you have lost all rights because it is now possible for someone in the corrupt air marshals or some child molesting homeland security agent to deem your crazy gun toting ass as a terrorist suspect or place you on a watch or no fly list


    By Michael Grabell, ProPublica
    Shawn Nguyen bragged that he could sneak anything past airport security using his top-secret clearance as a federal air marshal. And for months, he smuggled cocaine and drug money onto flights across the country, boasting to an FBI informant that he was "the man with the golden badge."
    Michael McGowan used his position as an air marshal to lure a young boy to his hotel room, where he showed him child porn, took pictures of him naked and sexually abused him.

    And when Brian "Cooter" Phelps wanted his ex-wife to disappear, he called a fellow air marshal and tried to hire a hit man nicknamed "the Crucifixer."

    WASHINGTON - A Homeland Security Department spokesman was held without bail Wednesday on felony charges of sexually preying on a detective posing as a 14-year-old girl through explicit online conversations. He was quickly suspended without pay from one of the nation’s top crime-fighting agencies.

    The arrest of Brian J. Doyle, 55, raised doubts about the ability of an agency responsible for safeguarding the country to ensure the security credentials of its own people.

    The left is in charge now. They don't believe in freedom...which is why most of them still support the PA. It gives them powers they think they'll need in the future. One of them is the right to spy on whomever they want.

    With the left it never really is about the issues, it's about political power.

    I didn't know there were any Patriots left in the United States besides those football players.

    Leftists are basically frauds. Just like their supposed "Anti-War" stance,their opposition to the Patriot Act was all about politics and getting the power back. Just positions of political convenience for them. Leftists are more intellectually dishonest than Conservatives for the most part. The same Leftists who used to screech 24/7 about how awful the Patriot Act was,just voted in lock-step to extend it.

    I never believe Leftists on anything they say they stand for. It was always all about getting the power back for them. We saw this back when Bill Clinton was bombing several nations and you didn't hear a peep out of all the so-called "Anti-War" Leftists. They're pretty quiet so far on their President dropping the bombs this time around as well. This one went the way of their "Changing the tone of Washington,Hope & Change,Ending corruption,Raising the Debt Limit,and The Nuclear Option." How can anyone believe anything a Leftist says in the future? I just can't take them seriously anymore.

    I find it interesting that those who origionally supported the PA are now blaming the other side for it.
    I was always against the PA.
    Still am.
