Quote for the Weekend

"It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you."

- Dick Cheney
Vice President of the United States

This is especially true in the face of those who believe the Patriot Act a greater threat to civil liberties than those who would try to kill us.

Those that are trying to kill us are, by definition, trying to take our lives. As such, they are a minimal threat to civil liberties.

SayUncle -

From Wikipedia:

"Civil liberties are protections from the power of governments. Examples include the right to life , freedom from torture, freedom from slavery and forced labour, the right to privacy, the right to a fair trial, freedom of speech and freedom of assembly, and the right to marry and have a family. These are usually guaranteed and protected by a constitution or by adherence to an international treaty."

So, yeah, the guys trying to take our lives are more than "a minimal threat to our civil liberties."
