Bill Would Allow Arrests For No Reason In Public Place
Citizens Would Also Have To Show ID
"The variety of people who opposed to this is not just a group of the
usual suspects. We have people far right to the left opposing the bill who think
it is a bad idea," said Al McGinty, NewsChannel5’s terrorism expert.
McGinty said he isn't sure the law would do what it's intended to do.
"I think anything we do to enhance security and give power to protect the
public to police officers is a good idea," he said. "It is a good law in the
Gov. Bob Taft will make the ultimate decision on whether to sign the
bill. WEWS was told that Taft is expected to sign the bill into law, but legal
experts expect that it will be challenged in courts.

Do some research people. Look at how Hitler designed the laws of his land JUST BEFORE HE TOOK OVER AND WENT BERSERK. Now... look at the land of the free and home of the brave!
Now yes they are saying the law will be challenged in the courts. But isn't that what they ALWAYS SAY when they know the law will generate an outrage from the people? This feeble attempt at building hope in the hearts of those they illegally pull of the streets for "breathing" will no doubt flood the courts with so many people challenging the law that those seeking to rebuff it will be worn down. This illegal activity will become so common place that the judges and lawyers that would seek to overturn the arrests will eventually be worn down to such a frazzle that they will literally wimp out like they have on all the other laws that were supposedly "challenged in the courts."
In other words.. they KNOW the people won't like it, and they KNOW just how to handle it!

Bush on the Constitution: 'It's just a g**damned piece of paper'

Last month, Republican Congressional leaders filed into the Oval Office to meet with President George W. Bush and talk about renewing the controversial USA Patriot Act. Several provisions of the act, passed in the shell shocked period immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, caused enough anger that liberal groups like the American Civil Liberties Union had joined forces with prominent conservatives like Phyllis Schlafly and Bob Barr to oppose renewal.
GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.
“I don’t give a g**damn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”
“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”
“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a g**damned piece of paper!”
I’ve talked to three people present for the meeting that day and they all confirm that the President of the United States called the Constitution “a g**damned piece of paper.”
And, to the Bush Administration, the Constitution of the United States is little more than toilet paper stained from all the s**t that this group of power-mad despots have dumped on the freedoms that “g**damned piece of paper” used to guarantee.
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, while still White House counsel, wrote that the “Constitution is an outdated document.”
Put aside, for a moment, political affiliation or personal beliefs. It doesn’t matter if you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent. It doesn’t matter if you support the invasion or Iraq or not. Despite our differences, the Constitution has stood for two centuries as the defining document of our government, the final source to determine – in the end – if something is legal or right.
Every federal official – including the President – who takes an oath of office swears to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says he cringes when someone calls the Constitution a “living document.”
“"Oh, how I hate the phrase we have—a 'living document,’” Scalia says. “We now have a Constitution that means whatever we want it to mean. The Constitution is not a living organism, for Pete's sake.”
As a judge, Scalia says, “I don't have to prove that the Constitution is perfect; I just have to prove that it's better than anything else.”
President Bush has proposed seven amendments to the Constitution over the last five years, including a controversial amendment to define marriage as a “union between a man and woman.” Members of Congress have proposed some 11,000 amendments over the last decade, ranging from repeal of the right to bear arms to a Constitutional ban on abortion.
Scalia says the danger of tinkering with the Constitution comes from a loss of rights.
“We can take away rights just as we can grant new ones,” Scalia warns. “Don't think that it's a one-way street.”
And don’t buy the White House hype that the USA Patriot Act is a necessary tool to fight terrorism. It is a dangerous law that infringes on the rights of every American citizen and, as one brave aide told President Bush, something that undermines the Constitution of the United States.
But why should Bush care? After all, the Constitution is just “a g**damned piece of paper.”© Copyright 2005 Capitol Hill Blue
Bush, a man claiming to be a "born again" Christian uses the name of the Lord he worships in vain merely to stress a point so as to better restrict the American people? Ok.. one more time... PROPHECY STATES they will enact unjust laws and eventually enforce religious laws upon their citizens so that the Roman Catholic church can rule the world. No one is going to be able to stop Bush, his father, the Clinton's, or any other political pawn of Rome. All we can do is say, "LOOK! IT'S HAPPENING JUST AS JESUS SAID IT WOULD! SO GET YOUR HOUSE READY!"
There is really nothing else we as individual can do but to draw closer to God now. If we don't do it now, when the time of Jacob's trouble comes we will NOT have the necessary experiences in faith we may need to keep the faith. The time is NOW to get right with Christ!
All those militia men, all those anti-government websites, and all those that speak out against big government in the hopes of trying to change things are merely fighting a battle they can never hope to win. Christian prophecy is sure. The prophecies were written in advance so as to warn us when it's TIME TO GET READY! They weren't written to get us ready to fight to make a change! If they were, the prophecies would end with a different scenario.
