The Reader's Shop writes "MSNBC Reports Despite a possible veto from President Bush, the House voted Wednesday to block
the FBI and the Justice Department from using the Patriot Act to search library
and bookstore records. The vote was 238-187."
I'm very happy that my Representative, Don Young of Alaska, joined (or maybe led) 37 other Republican Congressmen in voting yes to force the feds to go get a regular court order if they want library and bookstore records.What we read deserves at least that much protection. Now we have to work on our Senators!It was also heartening to see North Carolina Rep. Walter "freedom fries" Jones support this very reasonable amendment.
I'm proud of Congress too. Hurrah for our freedoms. I'm feeling a bit encouraged.
