Is the Patriot Act II coming soon?
There was so much anger over the surveillance and the infringement on citizens rights being constantly violated? Yet, here we are with another terrorists attack. No, it did not happen on American soil like 9/11 did, but are we so sure that it won't be coming here next, again?
I mean whatever 9/11 was, it did put us on the path we have been on with regard to national security. Perhaps, this is their way of getting Americans on board with reinstating another version of the Patriot Act.
I have suggested before that I personally do not care if they read every e-mail or eavesdrop on any of my phone calls, I have nothing to hide.
Question is where terrorists cells are involved, and I do believe they exist on American soil, don't we want them caught before they blow up or shoot up American citizens? Are we not willing to allow them to keep tabs on us for the sake of our children? Or our parents?
If you have nothing to hide why do you care? You want your privacy? They only care if your are doing something illegal that has direct overtures or tendencies towards violence.
I say reinstate it, give us Patriot Act II. Do it now.

Patriot Act 2 ?
The first one was the FISA ACT under Carter.
The second one was the Omnibus Counter Terrorsim Act under Clinton.
The Patriot Act 3 came under Bush.
The 4th incarnation was the 'Affordable' Care act under Obama with it's 'datahub'.
We are up to 5 now.
The ACA is in no way, shape or form a 4th incarnation of this,
The Federal Data Services Hub (Hub), a component of the health insurance exchanges created by Obamacare, connects seven different government agencies and establish new access points to the sensitive personal information of the American public.
When shoppers apply for health insurance through the forthcoming state-based Obamacare exchanges, the online system will verify each applicant's information by pulling in data from more than half a dozen federal agencies ranging from the IRS to the Peace Corps. It will know who you are, how much money you make, and whether or not you're in the United States legally.
No we aren't giving up our rights period end of story
and if this was meant to be satirical or funny it's not.
