Patriots Act This Way

You mean the law isn't being applied as intended? You mean we dirty fucking hippies were right all along.


WATCH: DoJ Official Blows Cover Off PATRIOT Act


Awesome. So glad Al is in the federal mix.

We need more Al Democrats. A lot more.

The DOJ fucker has the gall to state 'this is surreal'. Yeah, surreal you can't square 'laws' with the constitution.

Al Franken Reads the 4th Amendment to Justice Department Official:

"Franken, who opened by acknowledging that unlike most of his colleagues in the Senate, he’s not a lawyer, but according to his research “most Americans aren’t lawyers” either, said he’d also done research on the Patriot Act and in particular, the “roving wiretap” provision that allows the FBI to get a warrant to wiretap a an unnamed target and his or her various and changing cell phones, computers and other communication devices.

Noting that he received a copy of the Constitution when he was sworn in as a senator, he proceeded to read it to Kris, emphasizing this part: “no Warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

“That’s pretty explicit language,” noted Franken, asking Kris how the “roving wiretap” provision of the Patriot Act can meet that requirement if it doesn’t require the government to name its target.

Kris looked flustered and mumbled that “this is surreal,” apparently referring to having to respond to Franken’s question. “I would defer to the other branch of government,” he said, referring to the courts, prompting Franken to interject: “I know what that is.”"

I have to agree. I've commented previously on the Panda.

They only eat one thing and it has very little nutritional value. However, they get so fat they can't have sex.

Stupid pandas.

Once I was a huge Braves fan. Then the steroid era commenced and I was completely turned off of the sport. Haven't followed it in several years.

But a huge Braves fan I was (and still am to an extent). Grew up hard and strong on Braves baseball (Thanks, TBS!). Can still name the 1983 line-up.

I'll watch Bobby's swan song next year. I love Bobby and all of the great years he gave us in Atlanta. Damn, I hope they can make a run.
