"In a letter sent to Congress on Monday, the coalition urges politicians to oppose draft legislation prepared by the U.S. Justice Department and called the Domestic Security Enhancement Act (DSEA). Critics have dubbed it the USA Patriot Act II, a reference to the 2001 law expanding eavesdropping powers that Congress speedily enacted soon after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The coalition includes groups as varied as the American Civil Liberties Union, the American Conservative Union, the Gun Owners of America, the American Baptist Churches, the U.S. Presbyterian Church and the Mennonite Central Committee. Immigrant-rights groups, librarians and civil rights groups also signed the letter."

So The Bee is not getting all the factual information it desires how does it feel?
Not to say I don't agree, but it's interesting that the industry that picks and chooses what information to publish, even at times skewing with careful wording, has a problem with government bodies doing the same.

Did you ever consider that possibly the manner you sometimes choose to present the information is the reason they don't want it made public? That they don't fear the information itself being made public but the way it would be portrayed by the press?

I know if I had a concealed carry permit, for example, given your attitude toward guns, you'd be the last people I'd want to have that information on me. There's no telling what you'd do with it.

" 'We've been tearing our hair out since the Homeland Security Act passed,' Apogee President Tim Van Milligan said. 'This law treats model rocket fuel as an explosive. You need a criminal background check now to use our product. It's an absolute disaster for this industry.' "

"Why aren't the Iraqi people rejoicing at their liberation? It's Stockholm Syndrome to the Nth degree. We gave these people cause to hope 12 years ago and some rebelled, only to be left high and dry for reasons that were never made clear, probably having to do with Iran. And many of them paid a heavy price. For years, TV news magazines have told us of the unbelievable nature of mind control in Iraq, the absolute ubiquity of Saddam's image in country. During World War II, the Germans and Japanese believed fervently in their leaders and causes. They had to be defeated, if not crushed, before they came to their senses and rejoined the family of civilized nations."

"Under cover of darkness in the early morning hours Monday, Chicago's lakefront airport Meigs Field was closed after city construction crews carved a series of large, X-shaped portions of concrete out of the runway. After the airport closed operations at 11 p.m. Sunday, with no notice to the tower and only short notice to the airport-based fire department,
a police-escorted caravan of heavy equipment made its way onto 18-36 and carved large X's into the runway. By dawn the trucks and backhoes were gone. 'The nature of the actions taken by the city under the cover of darkness indicates that there was not public support for this action,' EAA President Tom Poberezny said. 'Throughout the years, Meigs Field has proven its value, both from an economic standpoint and as well as from a social standpoint. Thousands of kids have enjoyed EAA Young Eagles flights there. Numerous organizations and hundreds of volunteers have worked diligently on behalf of the airport. We will continue to work with the Friends of Meigs Field and others in trying to save the airport. All options will be quickly investigated.' "

"It is often said that 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend'. In wartime the folly of such a thought becomes crystal clear. My enemy is the state - whether the Iraqi state or the American state hardly matters. Perhaps the new rulers will be less harsh than the old ones - of course that would be a relief if I am still alive to appreciate it. But I will still be ruled."

"Just how the San Francisco Police Commission, whose five members are appointed by the mayor, will deal with fallout from the protests is anybody's guess. But at this point it would be a surprise if the panel actually pressed for a full accounting of the overtime bills or sanctioned any cops who got out of line. The commission, which sets department policy and disciplines rogue cops, generally seems unwilling to ask the department tough questions and uninterested in hearing from the citizenry."

These rules are fixed and have a precise meaning based on the intent of those who crafted them.
