See that little Frenchie on the right hand side of this here blog post? That was Your JoeDog under the Patriot Act. He slept the sleep of the contented then.
While the USA Patriot Act was in effect he didn’t worry about terrorists coming to chop off his head. He did lose sleep over bad guys with suicide bombs. He didn’t worry his pretty little head about creeping sharia law. But that was then.
Early this morning — at midnight to be exact — the United States Congress allowed the USA Patriot Act to expire. All those terror fighting tools are out the window now. With no eavesdropping, no metadata, no records seizures. and no extended Secret Service jurisdictions, how’s Your JoeDog supposed to sleep at night?
See that little Frenchie on the right hand side of this here blog post? That’s how. Good riddance, USA Patriot Act.
