Not to interject a fly in the ointment, but isn't the Patriot act still law of the land, and doesn't it suspend much of the "Bill of Rights", and other little fine points such as "habeas corpus". Doesn't this enable such actions as rule by decree, other wise known as executive order. I hope the Patriot Act doesn't become the great irony of our time. I hope they will back away from this line of thought, and appreciate the damage it could cause. I love my country, and I want her back!
