How do you folks like dubya's new "security" bill? Do you feel comfortable with him and his pals being able to search your home without telling you, monitoring your internet use (some folks, no names mentioned, will likely be getting visits from dubya's "big brother") tapping your phone calls, etc?
Anyone backing the ACLU in their fight against implementation of this bill?

Every now and again the ACLU actually does something right! Good for them. I back 'em on this one.
Personally, (no names being mentioned) I am sick of my phone clicking and buzzing, and have reached the point where I simply cannot give any type of tacit approval to the folks that are making 1984 a harsh reality.

Comfortable---no. Watch it get abused........in the name of..... another step in the wrong direction?

Contrary to popular belief, "they" have always been able to search your house in secret by using a paid informant to break the law so they wouldn't have to. The same with phone records and wiretapping. "They" only needed a warrant if the phone company said NO. The phone companies rarely say no. Phone operators love an extra few bucks in their pockets and an excuse to do what they love best about their jobs, listening in on others.
Big Brother has already been here and left and the ACLU still is not interested in my civil rights. The ACLU is still focused on taking down the few shreds of morality we still have left in this country.

Didn't the Gestapo in Germany start of as some kind of Homeland Defense something or other? Does that explain how I feel about it all?

It sure doesn't give me the warm fuzzies! All I keep thinking about it George Orwell's "1984", and how we'rethat much closer to the NWO. Back the ACLU, not likely, as I think they're mostly lower than a snake's belly in a tire rut. I intend to just hang tight, finish fencing the place in, keep the pantry stocked, keep writing my representatives and what not, and keep praying and trusting in the Lord God Almighty.

How does trying to protect your constitutional rights constitute "taking down the few shreds of morality we still have left in this country"?
