Patriot Act Up for Renewal

The Patriot Act should have never been created to begin with.

It was made while we were all still very emotional, many of us, including myself though have hated it from the start.  It appears that the congress is going to be adding another year onto the Patriot Act.

This would extend it until February of 2012, and passage is likely to happen with little debate or contention.

Remember who the DHS considers terrorists.  Time to write your congress critters.  This renewal needs to be at least debated, preferably fully derailed.

Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.
