USA using Patriot Act against its own citizens

Sixteen-year-old Ashton Lundeby’s bedroom in his mother’s Granville County home is nothing, if not patriotic. Images of American flags are everywhere on the bed, on the floor, on the wall.

But according to the United States government, the tenth-grade home-schooler is being held on a criminal complaint that he made a bomb threat from his home on the night of Feb. 15.

What is this? What country is this? This is the United States! And now a teenager is a POW to his own country!

The Patriot Act is to protect the public? What a bunch of bull!

What do you think about this situation?

How the world works: news not covered by mainstream media

How the World Works posted yesterday (only 3 minutes) talks about Obama the fiscal hawk, the UN Walkout, CNN’s bad job of covering the tea parties, Obama and Chavez, and Amazon rankings. Oh, and that Obama supporters are drones.

Here you go:

And it brings up good points. 100 billion budget cut? That is nothing. Obama is doing such a ‘bang-up’ job as president.

Big shocker: Obama will not prosecute torturers

The ACLU demanded disclosure of the memos of the Bush administration that authorize torture.

And Obama did release them.

But…he is not going to prosecute the torturers.

Even though he said:

In one of my very first acts as President, I prohibited the use of these interrogation techniques by the United States because they undermine our moral authority and do not make us safer.

But here is another big surprise:

CIA officials who participated in enhanced interrogations during the Bush administration will be defended by government attorneys should charges be brought against them.

This blogger points out that America has a legal double standard.

As Bush would say: America doesn’t torture. Freedom tickles.
