Ah, I ask because I am very curious to hear about actual patriot act cases.

Both sides are claiming things I have yet to see (that it'll help/that it'll hurt).

I agree with you Craven, that it is rather odd not to have specific with which to debate on that legislation. I would suspect that opponents are worried about the potential for abuse . . .

This article seems to bolster the point that the Patriot act does more harm than good. The authorities appear to have taken appropriate steps without needing the power to violate the rights of citizens.

More than that, the Patriot act , or at least how it appears to be enforced, is focused on international terrorism. As the article suggests, this may make it easier to domestic terrorists to slip through the net looking for those who fit the steretypical muslim profile.

I, for one, enjoy frightening news. The more random and irrelevant the better.

You see, once my adrenaline and fear has reached a peak, then I'm ready
to buy into any argument and support any cause.

More please! I'm feeling very patriotic today!
