    The government may be interested in your phone records.  Here's another example of how the Patriot Act might go too far:

        It didn't make it right in 2001, and it doesn't make it right now.

    This news shocked and offended me...10 years ago.

      I was against it 10 years ago too.  What I'm most shocked about is the fact that the liberal left that was so vocal 10 years ago does nothing when Obama does the same thing.  It seems Obama is just as bad as Bush when it comes to invading our privacy, and the left is just as hypocritical as they claim the right is.

        Yet, many Republican congressmen who voted in favor are now attacking Obama for it.

          That's wrong too.

          Still, all I hear is excuses from the Left.  Bush started it.  Republicans voted for it too. . .etc.
