    Federal law now criminalizes activities that the average person would never dream would land him in prison. Consequently, every year, thousands of upstanding, responsible Americans run afoul of some incomprehensible federal law and end up serving time in federal prison.

    I won't be surprised if Reps. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) are soon reported to have perished in skiing or boating "accidents," or maybe to even commit suicide.

    The link supplied in the OP speaks primarily about the Resource Recovery and Conservation Ac and The Lacy Act/

    The Resource Recovery and Conservation Ac was passed in 1974 ... so that law has been around quite a while. There have been changes to that law, but not from the Obama administration.

    The Lacy Act was first passed in first passed in the early years of the Twentieth century and has been amended a number of times.

    The latest amendment went into effect in December 2008 ... note before Obama was sworn into office ... so do not blame it on his adminnistration.

    The Homeland Security Bill took away many of your civil liberties. It is a very scary piece of legislation. If you are not familiar with it, do some research. But, be warned, if you do you may not sleep well tonight.

    The patriot acts came from Clinton's administration. He used part of them to illegally tap John Gotti's phone calls.

    Actually Bro Curtis is right.

    Read below:

    “Americans will likely die on American soil, possibly in large numbers.” (from the Hart-Rudman U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century report, Sept 15, 1999 ) SOURCE

    History doesn't always end with Bush. :smilewinkgrin:

    Regarding the "Patriot Act"

    At the time I just wanted to shake some sense into some conservatives. I tried to tell them "Bush won't be President forever. Don't you realize that someday a Democrat will be elected president? Do you want them to have that power?"

    Thanx, poncho. Yep. The patriot act was in the wings, waiting for a tragedy to exploit. I know most people don't want to believe both sides are playing for the same team.

    Way back in 1962 they were planning a tragedy to exploit. I know most people don't want to believe their government is capable of such things but, the lust for power and control makes waiting around for something to happen just too much for some (in government) to handle.

    And yeah, both sides are playing for the same team. The game is on and the internationalists are way ahead of the American people. They control all the levers of power and the mass media. It's no wonder then people deny there is a global conspiracy for world government despite all the evidence. The people they've trusted to speak the truth to them are team players too.

    I tried that as well. Apparently conservatives lived more in fear of Brzezinski's and the CIA's radical islamists than a dictator named Hillary Rodham Clinton. Note: The same guy who admittedly aided and abetted terrorists is now a foreign policy advisor to president Barrack Obama. One could conclude that without the help of the terrorists "we" created neither Bush nor Obama would have these "enhanced" powers. Probably just another coincidence.
