Patriot Act


All about the Patriot Act
The Patriot Act was conceived as.... an act.  That is, the need for increased security was to be balanced with false and embellished stories of government overstep.  (See what 'balance' means here.)  The plan was to give citizens a healthy cynicism against government and promote American ideas of freedom, while actually clamping down in some ways.  Examples of the non-issues generated include:

  • Aggressive TSA screening (typically at air ports)
  • Water-boarding of terrorists
  • CIA prisons
  • Sheriff Joe, a fictional character against illegal immigrants

It is shameful that tools like Alex Jones have cited the Patriot Act to debase perfectly valid conspiracy theories with their own twisted version of world events.  Such destructive cretins must be condemned verbally in the strongest possible terms, then shunned by friends until they apologize tearfully for the harm they have caused.
