Eye of the Dragon

(no subject)

Remember a couple of weeks ago, when they found Saddam Hussein in his little hidey-hole, and I cynically commented on the convenient timing?

I was more right than I thought.

On that very same day, Bush signed Patriot II into law, extending and expanding the police-state powers of Patriot I and coming pretty damned close to repealing the Bill of Rights.

We have to burn the village to protect it. We have to sacrifice our freedoms to preserve them.

Justify this, pathia. Rationalize this. Tell me how you haven't lost any of your freedoms. Tell me again how none of this affects you.
