Anti-Terror Legislation

The Cynic Will Exact Vengeance Upon: Attempts to Create a Police State

Alright, I love John Ashcroft as much or more than the next guy. That said, this disturbs me more than a little.

The Patriot Act's vacating of significant safeguards against the government's abuse of private citizens disturbed me enough. Now they want to allow indefinite imprisonment and the ability to pursue the death penalty for "acts of terrorism?" Does anyone else smell a New York City Sewer Rat the size of a school bus?

I share the mindset of most Americans in the desire not to be terrorized. However, I think that desire extends to my government. If Congress passes this garbage and the Supremes sit idly by, we could be in for some real trouble.
