VICTORY Act -- wtf??
    #1829282 - 08/19/03 12:48 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Aww such cute acronyms! I just love when proposed legislation is in the form of an acronym, because I automatically know it's for the best intentions!

Seriously though, why don't they name it the LOSER Act? Ohhh because then people wouldn't be enthralled like they are when they hear the word "victory." What a cunning and yet incredibly lame PR ploy.

Even if it's' not an acronym, they usually label something the "save the children and kittens bill", and then if you vote against it because of incredibly bad riders or clauses, you can be labelled "anti children and kittens"

I AM anti children and kittens!

Well, not kittens. I like them.

Puppies, though, I am totally against.

I eat children....but only when I'm tripping on LSD.

Eating children while tripping can be very enlightening.

"under the VICTORY Act, the Justice Department would have the power to subpoena consumer data from a business.

...from telecommunication companies, Internet service providers, and financial service firms such as banks," the group said in a press release."

Thats scary...
Total information awareness indeed!... :crazy:

They can, and do.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

wow they're bold enough to call it the VICTORY act too.... its like "woohoo we've finally WON the power to fuck more people over! VICTORY IS OURS!"

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

This makes me so mad. John Ashcroft is one scary man. Time to write to your representatives and stop this ever-accellerating police state.

"Attorney General John Ashcroft plans to promote both the VICTORY Act and the USA PATRIOT Act on his ten-day, 20-stop tour of America, which begins on Tuesday, Aug. 19"

with any luck, 20 days touring america will be just enough to get him assassinated.
