Relayed from a mailing list I'm on...

The US Legislators are apparently not satisfied with the success of the
PATRIOT act at instilling fear into the populace. Now they're pushing for
a successor, "VICTORY" act, which would make trafficking drugs a terrorist
crime under the label "Narco-terrorism". They've already prosecuted
several meth lab runners under PATRIOT under the guise that Meth is a
"Chemical weapon", but this new bill has lots of other interesting things.
Such as requiring burden of proof on the judge to reject wiretaps, instead
of burden of proof on law enforcement for requesting them.

Cause, you know, we're ALL "neuro-terrorists" when you think about it.
Thinking bad thoughts about your government makes you one.

Aak! I had a naughty thought!

I'm going to go poke my brain out with a wire hanger now.

my thoughts on the patriot act last april:

"well it has come to my attention that the constitution specifically, the 4th Ammendment, is worth jack shit these days. you know the one that protects you against the government or anyone conducting an unwarrented search or seizure. gathering evidence illegaly. Katz v. United States. Katz made a phone call that said that he had placed a bet illegally. FBI had a tap on the phone booth he used. convicted. appealed to the supreme court. court decides that the evidence was not legal because there was no warrant. WOW. that is just amazing. so...i should have some kind of rights? which i don't have? but...why? i thought i lived in the land of the free and the home of the brave. i thought that the law was respected here. i thought human beings were respected here. but no. i was wrong. an act made stupidly can take away all your constitutional rights. just remember that, next time you want to restrict something for your safety. you give ground once and you live in a dictatorship. you cannot take action based on evidence gathered illegally. as in no search warrant."
