House Renews Patriot Act

When the Patriot Act was passed, Democrats and liberals howled and screamed about how horrible it was. We were told constantly how it violated all our privacy rights, and would be used by the sinister President Bush to monitor and enslave the entire population of the US. Conspiracy nuts on the Left ranted about how Bush would use the Patriot Act to monitor all internet activity, jail dissidents, and eventually declare himself dictator, or some such nonsense.

Well, Democrats have since changed their minds. The Politico has the story of how the House has voted to renew the Patriot Act (although they did so fairly quietly …). Odd how legislation touted as dangerous when a Republican is president is seen as necessary when a Democrat is President.
