"This Is How It Ends..."
Regarding the latest dog and pony show on renewing and expanding the grotesquely misnamed Patriot Act, may I quote from the latest Star Wars flick:
"This is how freedom ends: to the sound of thunderous applause."
"To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free...to a time when truth exists, and what is done cannot be undone...From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethink--greetings!" - George Orwell, 1984
