"GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!": OH, REALLY? THAT CAN BE ARRANGED THESE DAYS. YOU KNOW, THINGS LIKE ASSASSINATIONS, RENDITIONS & TORTURE, ETC.

QUOTE:

The limits of liberty: We're all suspects now :

Ten years ago, the novelist and polemicist Henry Porter
would have felt silly speaking out about human rights in
Britain. But that was before the most fundamental assault
on personal freedom ever undertaken. Now, he argues, it's
time we woke up to reality

QUOTE:

Congress' shameful retreat from American values:

None of the men and women who voted for this bill has
any right to speak in public about the rule of law anymore,
or to take a high moral view of the Third Reich, or to wax
poetic about the American Ideal. Mark their names

Do ‘computer police' have too much power?:

On Saturday morning, Sept. 23, 2006, many police
vehicles appeared in our driveway. Men in black with
flak jackets ran to and around our house.

Bush’s S.S. Grills 14 Year-Old:

Two super-sized adult male U.S. Secret Service (“S.S.”) agents
banged on the front door at 14 year-old Julia Wilson’s home
last Thursday during school hours, but Julia wasn’t home.
Predictably (except to the S.S. agents), the straight-A student
was in her microbiology class at school.
