And we are asking our government for protection, whatever the cost to our freedoms.
That’s a clear victory for the terrorists.
When America stops being America, the bad guys have won. If we are indeed the land of the free and the home of the brave, we should bravely continue our freedoms, not give them up.
Now is the time for us to be stubborn and resolute. Now is the time for us to question authority, not extend it. Now is the time for us to argue and debate and decide what’s right, not march in lockstep behind the leader of the moment.
Salon.com Technology | God bless Big Brother The Department of Justice’s bill introduces a host of surveillance and detention measures that have been immediately denounced by civil libertarians.

Pentagon suspends discharges during conflict
The network said, however, that those who choose to disclose they are gay might face discharge after the conflict is ended, as happened to gay troops after the Gulf War.
“The stop-loss order is an explicit acknowledgment by the Pentagon that gays and lesbians can serve their country, no question about that,” Steve Ralls, spokesman for the network, said yesterday. “It also sends the unfortunate message that while there are (gay men and lesbians) who put themselves in harm’s way, who risked their lives for the country, they can expect to be fired from their job” once the conflict is over.
Isn’t that SPECIAL. Gay people are good enough to die for their country during a time of crisis, but can expect discharge immediately after the conflict is over? What sort of nonsense is that? Only in Amerika.
