As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Stop The Permanence of the Patriot Act

So what are we going to do, because of one terrorist attack, throw the long suffered for, hard earned, 214yr defended Constitution's Bill of Rights down the drain? It is not acceptable but due to human nature, understable, that some want to temporarily retain some of the Patriot Act but to cave in and make it permanent is beyond belief. I mean making the Patriot Act permanent is an act of shaky knee-ed irrationale feminine-like fearful desperation that would have never carried the intestinal fortitude to establish the Bill of Rights in the first place. Here this loud and clear, it has been admitted by experts that a few changes in our intelligence, mainly the cooperation of the FBI with the CIA, would have averted 9-11. There is no need for the majority of the laws in the Patriot Act and the plan to permanently extend these rights to spy on ourselves(can you believe it?) is just another step toward removing the checks and balances in order to prevent a future police state or dictatorial abuse of power. Why did we make them temporary in the first place? Because the situation might subside and result in no more terrorist attacks but this administration is using the unrest in Iraq to cast an illusion that things are not settled down when Iraq has nothing to do with terrorism. If the Iraq war did not exist and we were instead "quietly" tracking down terrorist cells throughout the world with the world's enthusiastic support there would be few dramatic headlines to keep the public on edge and under the thumb of fear. As a result continuing support for this misguided Patriot Act would be on the wane as it should be. This should be loud & clear: WAKE UP AMERICA
