House renews Patriot Act, but Senate could balk

---------------
The House voted 251-174 to approve a House-Senate compromise that would modify and make permanent most of the Patriot Act’s 16 expiring provisions. But a group of Republican and Democratic senators is lobbying for more time to add additional safeguards on the law.

---------------

Please remember those slain by those in the 1960's and what it was and why they died for their country - Senators.
---------------
"Freedom, Liberty, and Equality does not exist in a democratic society without legal restraint, judicial oversight and responsibility to protect and to serve the people's rights as a government under our US Constitutional law."

Checks and Balances - are what we were afforded by our Founding Fathers - please do not forget about them.

I am very pleased to see you are so passionate to help Children and open the eyes of the world. I do believe you will accomplish everything you are working on because you have passion and you are doing it for the good of others. GOD rewards us when are intentions are to serve others. I had typed a comment and it wouldn't take it. When I hit the post comment button I needed to type in the letters I saw in the security format. The part where you look at the odd letters and type as you see. I did it 10 times or more and it still said it needed to be done over and over again...
