The Patriot Act *shudder* is due to expire, if not extended again. Some Democrats – the people who are FOR saving our Civil Liberties – put together some protections for all of us Americans. However, GOP Senators have gutted them and planned on moving forward without them in place.
That’s not the most disgusting thing about the article. It’s the quote from Senator Jim Bunning that really chaps me. He says, “Civil liberties do not mean much when you are dead”.
I’m sorry, but this shows BLATANT disregard and disrespect for every single civil rights leader who has ever put their life on the line, and those that have paid for paving the road to civil rights with their lives.
Bunning, you’re a JERK!
