I know that making the day that we vote a national holiday would say a lot more for democracy than most of our other holidays do.

leosha,
it is a piece of legislation put through by the congress right after the events of 9-11. what is does is give the federal government more latitude in what it can do legally when conducting any "terroist" threat of domestic or foreign origin. it in theory allows for suspension of many of the technicalities that help protect its citizens from unreasonable search, seizure, and privacy. it is part of the homeland security concept. the problem, is the broad definition given to "terrorist threat". there are extreme notions of what has or could happen in terms of the law's potential abuse. in this current age of fear, too much can be easily misconstrued and would be iin trouble with the homeland security team for something that would have been completely innocent and without issue prior to the events of 9-11. hope i have not made it worse with the explanation. also, i would not be surprisedd if i got some details wrong, but the gist is legislation the government can use against a too generic threat definition. the potential for mistakes is large.

It was George and his magic pen acting like FDR.

Curious George getting himself into trouble creating wrongs in the world to right while the man in the yellow hat (Rumsfeld) stands by to tell him what to do when he gets caught.

I've written them letters before theo. I don't care. They can watch all they want to. I know for a fact that I have been federally investigated at least twice. Once was for a job. Once wasn't. I'm probably eventually going to either get thrown out of this country, lynched, or imprisoned for not keeping my mouth shut about speaking the truth. I'm close to one right now.
