The USA Patriot Act, House Bill 53, is scheduled for hearing tomorrow morning
at 9am in Room 6. If you haven't contacted your Representatives yet,
it is egregious you do so NOW. If passed, public preaching may
be prohibited, pro-lifers may not be able to protest abortion clinics, and
people like myself may be criminalized for petitioning the government for
a redress of grievances. I cannot stress the importance of speaking
out against this unconstitutional bill and to rally like-minded Americans
together to petition our Representatives. If this bill is passed, I
suspect that gun control will be their next move.

"[Cal Gov]Gray Davis has proposed that his state's police agencies be given
the same authority to fight terrorism that Congress recently gave the feds...What
he has in mind is a state version of the insultingly named USA Patriot Act...
But you better watch out. Because already other states are asking for the
same authority. All this is being done in the name of anti-terrorism, but
the expanded powers could be used for any purpose approved by a court - a
state court at that."
