Nice explanations of areas that often seem too complex or complicated for people to understand.

Good video..... and now we know they know how thrilled we are with this, with the Tea Party, with war, with Big Oil and Big Ag.....and the list goes on.....

I agree Judy, these clever 'cartoons' make the most complicated news extremely easy to follow to everyone. This remind me of the arrest on the family that a woman was ordering a blender while her husband was ordering camping gear, only to have the squat team arrive!
One thing we can all be in agreement is we are all included in this conspiracy if we post, sign petitions, etc. on this site or any others. I DON'T GIVE A DAMN as I have nothing to hide.
Bush pushed the Patriot Act into effect and it has taken on a life of it's own. OUR LIVES! What Constitution?

Sorry I got a bit offtrack Kit, as I should have stuck to the 6 words in relationship to being patted down at the airport. I DON'T FLY and won't, but that's another story.

Oh for God's sake... who cares. I am boring, understand boring! On the other hand those terrorist guys are not.

Thanks, Kit, that was an excellent video.
I wondered how the NSA gets around the "foreign" part of this Act when they monitor the communications of Americans. Sneaky and slippery. The first time I knew this was going to be an absolute disaster.....does anyone remember that after 9/11, after the Patriot Act was enacted, that then-Sen. Kennedy was stopped from boarding a plane because his name was on the "no fly" list? A Senator!
And, why should I be worried? I sign online petitions and send letters as so many do. I've been to a few local protests....even taken my young adult kids along. I'm a "peace-pusher" who hates violence and firearms.....have trouble killing insects.
But, I understand the constitutional rights and also know that information can be corrupted by those in charge....accidentally or for whatever nefarious reasons someone decides to "target" someone innocent. The Founders of our country were absolutely right. If we're not allowed to speak freely, all is lost.

It does make me wonder how some of the radio "shock jocks," as well as cable news anchors/reporters can get away with the violent rhetoric they display almost daily. Not forgetting to mention some members of Congress who have make comments to provoke violence.....even to our President.
So, I'll be checking out that website mentioned in the video:
