Quote of week #2

Week ending December 25, 2005

No need to wait till the end of the week, I knew I had it watching the Sunday morning gab shows. Sen. Harry Reid gave me the quote of the week while standing in front of a mob of proud democrats and smugly pronouncing...

"Think about what happened 20 minutes ago in the United States Senate. We killed the Patriot Act."

— Harry Reid (D - NV)


As I watched the full video clip, I almost retched, pay special attention to the smug expression of pride & statisfaction on his face as he declares the destruction of the The Patriot Act, which passed the Senate by a vote of 98-1 (yes, he voted for it) in the weeks following the September 11, 2001, attacks. The Patriot Act was created "to deter and punish terrorist acts in the United States and around the world, to enhance law enforcement investigatory tools."  This bill help fix the "connect the dots problem" and tore down the "Jamie Gorelic wall" ( I'll explain that 'nightmare' in later blog) which prevented intelligence agencies from talking to each other,and continuined the deconstruction of US intelligence services that began with Church commission, in the 70's. The USA PATRIOT Act brought all that silliness to a end. Sadly all 16 provisions of the Patriot Act that were scheduled to expire at the end of this month, Its renewal would make 14 of these provisions permanent, it would reauthorize critical national security tools, while bolstering the Patriot Act's significant protections of civil liberties. It also includes provisions to fight crime and terrorism at America's seaports, and tougher criminal penalties and increased resources to combat the dangerous spread of meth-amphetamine abuse throughout our country. (bonus)

Here is a list of Senators who will be directly to blame for the next time (God forbid) America is attacked again, responsibility will rest squarely on their shoulders, I can't to hear them explain how they could strip away America’s ability to protect herself from terrorists and why they always stand up to protect the "rights" of terrorists over the rights of Americans.

The devil is just one man with a plan, but evil ... true evil is a collaboration of men which is what we have here today. If I am a guilty man, my crime is in daring to believe that the truth will out ... I believe it still. Much as you try to bury it, the truth is out there. Greater than your lies, the truth wants to be known. ...It'll come to you as it's come to me, faster than the speed of light. -agent Fox Mulder
