Hey FOX News, I'm Organizing a Real Protest.

You know, as in a "Repeal the Patriot Act Party" or "Repeal the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act(NDAA) of 2007" Party, to rid our laws of the Dictatorship/Martial-Law-enabling powers that Bush succeeded in claiming for the Executive Branch; powers that circumvent the Congress, and which can be enacted at the mere threat of public uprising, or any percieved threats, vaguely
designated in the NDAA text as "other".

I wonder how many Republican Leaders or FOX News DittoHeads will be Interested in organizing a real grassroots and bipartisan protest, fueled by genuine concern of citizens for our privacy, personal liberties and freedom from tyranny, to repeal these Hitleresque amendments to our laws.

Conservative Leaders, FOXNews instead of mis-using the commisery-induced loyalties of their well-organized cabal of locked-in-step and seething dittoheads for ridiculous Tea Parties, which apparent purpose is to bemoan the steadily approaching but still far off, expiration of the 2001 Bush tax cuts, (what other purpose? because only tax cuts for the middle class have transpired under the current administration. Are they spilling tea over middle class tax cuts?), should put their constituent's misguided patriotism to work pressuring Congress to repeal the more egregious affronts to our privacy and civil liberties, repairing our seriously damaged reputation as the last, best chance for democracy.

Fox News, rather than stir dissent and encourage blatant antigovernment sentiment should use their government leased broadcast license to beseech their tea-baggin followers to get behind the current administration, as they work, determinedly to clean up the god-awful mess (the constitution, and the economy,"stupid", not the tea bags in the harbor) that they themselves, admittedly and unabashedly helped drag the country through, these last eight years.

Are you really?

You didn't bother to tell us the essential information one might need to participate in your demonstrations, like when and where and more importantly, why?

You cite a couple of acts that have upset a few folks, but in the meantime the Secretary of State and the Attorney-General have declared open season on the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, which as any serious student of history knows, has the real potential of destroying all the freedoms affirmed by our Constitution.

So, why don't you tell us where and when we can bring the grassroots movement to fruition and why, for instance, we should fear the Patriot Act more than the perversion and destruction of the Second Amendment?

Ahh yes another evil Fox news post. Of course you couldn't add it to the existing 75 other Faux news is evil threads. And once again the "Tea Parties" were going on before Fox News covered it, and Fox news is covering it because of the huge turnout.


Oh and I would definitely attend a 2nd rights grass root movement.
