The Patriot Act...

So, after reading numerous articles on the Patriot Act (signed in to law under George W.), I continue to ask myself what's so Patriotic about it? As one law professor stated, calling the unpatriotic bill the "Patriot Act" was marketing genius.

It reminds me a bit of the ICBM missiles that are called "Peacekeepers". Nothing about that missile is peaceful...not a darn thing. It's built to kill thousands or millions of people...not bring peace. Again, marketing genius.

Perhaps the key to the "Patriot Act" is that it's really an act. It's not genuinely patriotic, it simply is playing a part that is extremely distant from it's true character.
