House Votes to Limit Use of Patriot Act

This part is what I find unbelievable:

"If there are terrorists in libraries studying how to fly planes, how to put together biological weapons, how to put together chemical weapons, nuclear weapons, ... we have to have an avenue through the federal court system so that we can stop the attack before it occurs," said Rep. Tom Feeney, R-Fla.

Why am I not surprised this idiot is from Florida? Hey, fucknut, guess what? Terrorists don't need to use libraries to study all that stuff. It's called the Internet. Have you heard of it? With a fake ID and a fake Social Security number, you can get a credit card, and once you have that, you can order anything on the Internet, including books on chemical weapons, nuclear weapons, and how to fly an airplane. Do you think terrorists use their real names? Do you think there are pots of gold at the ends of rainbows? Hell, Microsoft sells 'Flight Simulator' to anybody, even to people with unpronounceable names!

There are no terrorists in libraries, just as there are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The government saw a way after 9/11 to give their agencies greater abilities to invade privacy and they took it. I'm just glad some lawmakers have come to their senses.
