Per my fellow mobster at Les Enragés – Sad But True, has an excellent post up regarding the recent capitulation by the Democrats.
…… and “in case you didn’t already know, amendments to FISA were the chief concern of the USA PATRIOT act, so this is really the second time the law has been re-written to suit Bush’s unwillingness to accept any limitations to his power.”
There it is – right there==>: ‘Bush’s unwillingness to accept any limitations to his power.’
Kind of goes hand-in-hand with this discussion at Jolly Roger’s Revolution 2.0 about how much of our comfort are we willing to compromise as we see our civil liberties and freedoms being eroded. How much comfort are we will to forego so as to not lose our freedom and liberty altogether just to satisfy the fascististas currently in power?
