Are you serious?

Would the government and FBI really misuse the Patriot Act?

Oh snap, they did. But don't worry, they're super sorry and pinky swear that they will never do it again.

I can't tell if this is good news or just more disturbing news. Well, I suppose it's not disturbing since I assumed they would abuse this power to the max... And it must be good news because their corruption is being publicly displayed and criticized, which should make people less likely to support future renewals of this act.

If the democrats are of any use, they will disable this intrusive act, along with No Child Left Behind, the Clean Air Act and all the other dumb shite the president has thought up or signed into law (and by signed I mean made a few incoherent marks in or around the area he was supposed to write his name) during the past 7 years.

It sure is going to take a lot of time, effort, intelligence and money to fix this country. . . I vote we just hit the reset button.
