    Patriot Act Author: Feinstein bill 'a joke'

    Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr. doesn’t mince his words.

    The Wisconsin Republican says the House and Senate Intelligence committees have become “cheerleaders” for the National Security Agency.

    “Instead of putting the brakes on overreaches, they’ve been stepping on the gas,” he said of the committees, which are led by Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

    Patriot Act author: Feinstein's bill
    The NSA spies on everything and no one gives a F. The author of the Patriot Act? One of the most vile pieces of legislature ever that is unpatriotic and condemns The People to a life of subjugation to whim of State? I mean, he wasn't really that far removed.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    That's the whole point, things are so bad with the NSA that even the author of that liberty crushing Patriot Act is complaining.

    Given that the Patriot Act started us down this slippery slope, maybe the guy responsible for it should shut his stupid yap.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Then he should lead by example and walk into a prison cell for a while.

    I don't think he should shut his yap at all - if anyone knows about impeding individual liberty it's him. Yes his stupid law opened the door but this whitehouse decided to expand the neo-con policy beyond anything that could have passed with Bush. The best thing about it? Since it's a (D) doing all the expanding, no protests, no 24x7 coverage of the protests. It's all nice and quiet like...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    So the point is that we've had criminals running the country for some time and if people would stop being partisan, perhaps we could apprehend them all.

    I totally agree.
