Senator Paul stated, “There comes to a time in the history of nations when fear and complacency allow power to accumulate and liberty and privacy to suffer. That time is now. And I will not let the Patriot Act, the most unpatriotic of acts, go unchallenged.” His ten and a half hour speech, ending in the closing minutes of Wednesday, prevented Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell from filing cloture on a bill that would extend the Patriot Act.
There’s something intolerable about no tolerance rules. Two Southwest Airlines flight attendants refused to allow Karen Momsen-Evers to use her phone to respond to her husband’s suicide threat. They wouldn’t even inform the captain of the emergency. As a result, the woman’s husband died, but the airline has offered to refund the cost of her flight.
The Sorenson Database promised DNA donors their genetic data would never be used outside the organization. Ancestry.com bought the resource and allowed access to police for a flimsy murder case. The circumstantial evidence led to film maker Michale Usry. After lying to get his DNA, the cops found out he was not a match for DNA found at the scene. Now the Sorenson web site is shut down, displaying the message, “… it has come to our attention the site has been used for purposes other than that which it was intended ….”

And now her opponents — from both the Left and Right — are attacking the messenger. I guess it’s easier than debating her objections.
