Do any of you agree with me and the American Library Association that this administration's policies (namely the so-called "patriot act"), have severly impinged on American's civil liberties?
I will readily admit that I'm not extremely familiar with all that the Patriot Act encompasses (guess I should do my homework), but from the little I do know about it, I'm not all that thrilled with it. I think Ashcroft and company took advantage of 9/11 to get some things passed that they wanted done for a long time (although that's just supposition on my part and I can't back it up).
Btw Bert, you do know what you could be getting yourself into by jumping into one of these threads, right?
