Stop the Expanded Use of Secret Searches
    #2106788 - 11/14/03 04:56 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Congress is very close to giving government law enforcement agents even
broader powers to force businesses to turn over sensitive private
information about their customers without any judicial review.

Part of a little-noticed provision that is pending before a conference
committee, the expanded powers would allow the government to access
your travel records, car purchases, stock trades or other purchases and
stop you from finding out that these records have been searched. The
government could undertake these searches for loosely defined "national
security" purposes even if it has no reasonable suspicion that you were
involved in a crime.

Take action! Congress needs to ensure that there is proper judicial
oversight over government investigations!

The Bill of Rights takes yet another hit. :frown:
When will this stop? The so-called "Patriot Act" is anything but!
Here's a rundown of this abominable act: "The USA Patriot Act: Treason Masquerade"

if only we were living in a dream we might be able to wake from this mess



"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."
