    Patriot Act on hold... for now

    Stardate 5049.9

    Much to the chagrin of King George and his Royal Court, the House will renew the "Invasion-of-Privacy" act by only one month, instead of the 6 month deal sought by the Administration. Several provisions of the current Patriot Act are due to expire December 31st, and naturally, the King is up in arms about that. The debate will now rage on in early 2006, and hopefully, more safeguards for privacy and civil liberties can be safeguarded against.
    Bush indicated that he would sign the extension. “The work of Congress on the Patriot Act is not finished,” Bush said. “The act will expire next summer, but the terrorist threat to America will not expire on that schedule. I look forward to continuing to work with Congress to reauthorize the Patriot Act.”
    I am amused by Bush's belief in how important this Act really is. I mean sure, there needs to be safeguards against the inevitable attacks comign from every direction, but the way he talks, the country will never be free from threat from terrorist attacks, so if things don't change, expect to have NO freedoms left forever... Heh. I think a permanent deal is very scary, and the LAST thing anybody besides King George wants. Especially considering they have already been spying on American citizens illegally for years!
