Federal judge in Oregon rules Patriot act unconstitutional


From the Washington Post

Amen to that, now if we can just get Congress to reinstate habeas corpus

    Yes, Mayfield is a true patriot in every sense of the word.

    Between being out of town and catching a cold I missed your 3rd Amendment post As usual it is very enlightening. You do such a great job of researching this stuff.

    The 4th Amendment is definitely worth reading as well at

    I was really thrilled when I read about this court case. It was really timely for my post on the fourth amendment, too.
