Need an Act of God to counteract the Patriot
This Patriot Act is a disaster for every activist of any kind that isn't in lockstep with the White House. We've had a bit of a debate over one of the Sections related to dissent at The Impolitic. It doesn't bode well even worse for drug policy reformists but even worse, they've added provisions on "narco-terrorism" and the inane Meth Epidemic Act as amendments. Talk Left has the links to these Sections and other equally depressing and odious provisions.
There's still some slim hope for a filibuster. If you've got religion of any kind, pray that someone will stop them.
