@ Don't Tread on -
"Ever notice the constant caterwauling by Demmies about such laws as the Patriot Act (of which I have some misgivings, too) but when they're in power they never repeal or weaken them! Instead they use them!"
VERY good point and absolutely true. And the Left does NOT care what anyone on the "other side" thinks, does, protests against or believes in. Any lie, subterfuge or dirty trick that can be employed to further their agenda is OK, and then accuse the opposition (more lies) of the exact same thing. Isn't that in the Koran? Oh, yeah, I forgot, it's in "Rules For Radicals" as well.
This is not a drill, people.
