SO, there are PARTS or all of the Patriot Act which are dumped? The article says the Obama people were for extending the Homeland Security measure for another 2 years...SO, is THAT a part of the Bill that got shot down or is that a separate part that stays or is everything in the Patriot Act gone?
Where's wiretapping fit into this? Now we can't wiretap on suspicious calls without calling some Judge in the middle of the night for his approval, thereby taking so long we lost a lead on information that could keep Cleveland standing?
Help me here.. Which parts are IN and which are OUT, or is it ALL GONE...and what's that include? AND DO YOU CARE?
If I get only a few comments, I'll know we all know ZILCH about things that are so important to us, and I'm on the top of that "I don't know list" and that doesn't make me feel too good. Educate me, please.
I'm furious, as I said in my opening sentence, because THE MEDIA OUGHT TO FILL US IN... and I'm FURIOUS that the Republicans who voted for extension of the bill are saying the people who voted against it don't really know the bill. THEY DON'T KNOW, and I'm hard on MYSELF and YOU DEAR PEOPLE?
Let's have a free for all........yell at me for inferring we're all uninformed, set me on the right track as far as what IS now being revoked by the end of this month, tell me how YOU feel about the Patriot Act ...and the worst part is this: Are we safer, or did OUR civil liberties being safeguarded just give the keys to the city to terrorists?
I'm just throwing it ALL out there.......... PLEASE help.
