Bush Says Government Focused on Security

"The Patriot Act helps us to defeat our enemies while safeguarding civil liberties for all Americans," Bush said
emphasis mine

The Patriot Act does that? Does he have a different one? Because the one I've heard about doesn't do that. Now, I know the guy is a complete moron, but does he really expect people to swallow a lie like that?

Yes, yse he does. And why wouldn't he? They've swallowed everything else he's fed them.

You did read Orwell's "1984", didn't you? It's all in the newspeak playbook.

John Howard said...

Yeah, you're right Shakes.

Actually I somehow missed reading 1984 for a long time, and finally read it last year which was perfect since when I was done I was convinced that he meant to title it "2004" since it applies so well.

Patriot Act safeguards no rights, it takes them away, anyone with common sense knows that.

Ummm John, folks like us (ones who disagree with the repubevangelicals) aren't considered Americans.

John Howard said...

Yeah, but it takes away those idiots' rights as well.
