People that HATE GOVERMENT hate the fact that Government actually helps PEOPLE they think are not PEOPLE !
They also usually HATE SCIENCE because it stands up as true no matter what they think and believe and it effects everybody the same and sooner or later you have to accept it!
But these people HATE DEMOCRACY most of all because that means ALL THE PEOPLE ARE EQUAL IN VOTING and that includes some people that some think are NOT PEOPLE !
Who might THOSE people be ?
The Rich need the Patriot Act most notably to protect their financial markets against terrorist acts, and to protect against a loss of wealth from a populist up-rising by 99% of Americans.
What?! You don't mean to tell me you honestly think Obama gives a shit if terrorists inflict a big loss of life on the "little people" do you?
It's about money and wealth - period.

It appears, to me, that many white Americans actively hunt for excuses when faced with things that illuminate them in a less than lofty light. This is astoundingly true when the issue(s) involve black Americans. For instance, the plethora of recent killings of black Americans (men in particular) is often met with two basic responses. The first of which is: “well, it’s not a black and white issue, it is… (blah, blah, blah)”. Then, comes a citation of the most obscure and anomalous event they can conjure up.

Greece has about 8% of the population in the public sector. The US has about 7%. Of the work force, it's about 18% for Greece, 15% for the US. The Greeks have less public debt per capita than the US, and less private individual debt. Even as a percentage of GDP their debt is almost midway between that of the US (104%) and Japan (208%) at 165%. As a percentage of GDP, the UK's debt looks modest, as befits an economy Thatcher created. Actually, household debt in the UK is among the highest in the world and dwarfs Greece's by an order of magnitude.
KICKED OFF- GOOD! NO one should be allowed travel on an airline with a young toddler, unless assurances are secured that they can control their kid. I got stuck on a 13 hour flight from Vancouver to Singapore with a mum and a screaming kid, it got so bad I had to go hide in the bathroom to escape the noise. GITMO should look into this as another form of torture.
