Yippee!... uh-oh... (... and it probably doesn't matter)
Yippee!!! The Senate let the so-called Patriot Act die. Uh-oh: Rand Paul was the Senator that seemed to be most in line with my views on the so-called Patriot Act. ... and it probably doesn't matter: within the week key provisions of the so-called Patriot Act will doubtless be re-instated. Does ANYONE remember the post 9-11 catch-phrase? We had failed to "connect the dots". In a moment of fear and panic the so-called Patriot Act was passed. It generates MORE dots - it does NOTHING to "connect the dots" - it simply generates LOTS MORE DOTS! In my experience, decisions made when fearful and panic-stricken are BAD. The so-called Patriot Act was a BAD idea then.It's a STILL a BAD IDEA!
