In October of 2000, the Clinton Administration tried to amend the Stafford Disaster Relief...act. The freepers went nuts over it. Here is the "title" of the amendment:
Preparedness Against Terrorism Act of 2000 - Amends the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (the Act) to include acts of terrorism or other catastrophic events within its definition of "major disaster" for purposes of authorized disaster relief.
and the freepers response? Take a look....
Suspension of Constitutoinal rights, habeus corpus, search, sezure and arrest rules, grand jury process. The institution of dictatorial rule by executive powers and enforced by the military, now under the command of the atty. general. In short.
(LOL! Busted!) Suffice to say tyranny , will not prepare us for terrorism anymore than wayward fingers will prepare us for typos.114 Posted on 10/04/2000 12:48:22 PDT by Keeper of the Flame
okay, I get it.....if Clinton suspended Habeus Corpus, then it's tyranny, but if Bush does suspends Habeus Corpus, it's good.....
