ZONER: ON THE PATRIOT ACT

0

You might have thought that this would be about Tom Brady’s recent appearance on “Family Guy”. Sorry. It’s not.

Would LOVE to hear others opine on the following thoughts.

We go to war. We go to war to free the oppressed and also to maintain and protect our own freedom. Ostensibly, anyway. We go to war in the full knowledge that civilians and our soldiers will die in these efforts, though they try to avoid that end. So we know that our freedoms and those of others will end up in casualties.

Stay with me here. I think that the fact that we haven’t had any terrorist attacks here in America since that dreadful day in 2001 has something to do with the Patriot Act being in place. How much effect? I don’t know. Smarter people than me can decide that. But what is the difference if we die protecting our current freedoms here in our country by terrorist attack or by war in another land? Does the Patriot Act and the denial of unalienable rights serve as a sort of terrorist attack too? It’s taking away our rights and our freedom, at least in part. If we are willing to fight and die for our freedom and rights should we even have something like the Patriot Act? Isn’t it similar to the reasons we go to war?

Am I making sense?

    Hey, do you agree with me that Arits Gilmore should be in the Hall of Fame?

    If so, would you be interested in helping me jazz up my new blogsite? It’s obvious you know a lot more than me about customizing a website. This site looks great!

    It’s artisforthehall.blogspot.com

    I’m shocked–I thought he was in the HOF. How is he not in? Ridiculous.

    Thanks for the kudos on the site. I really don’t know too much about design but I’ll be happy to help however I can.
