Removing Bogeyman Added To Patriot Act


With boxing gloves removed the House finally approved the much debated Patriot Act by a thin margin of 280 to 138, just two votes above the number needed to move the bill to President Bush's desk.

White House officials said the President will sign it before tomorrow's deadline preventing both a dreadful collapse of our national security and most important of all a chance to shake a few more liberals from the tree.

Several parts of the Patriot Act were hotly contested, including the provision that allowed FBI officials to work behind library check out desks bestowing them power to examine books taken from the library and to instruct unruly visitors to hush up.

Additional pork was added to the act including a law allowing West Virginia to install billboards of Sen Byrd waiving to Yankees as they cross their borders.

The provision creating the most contention among congressman was the Bogeyman Bill.

Brought to the floor by Harry Reid, D-Nev, the bill will protect children from the lurking terrorist often referred to as Bogeyman, as well as help grownups who find it hard to sleep at night in fear of The Living Dead, The Creature From The Black Lagoon or The Man From Planet X.

"You can talk all day about Al-Qaeda, bin Laden, Iranian nuclear missiles and weapons of mass destruction but if you don't fight off the flesh eating terrorist that crawl through dark, foggy Kentucky swamps or things that live under your beds, then we have done little or nothing for the American people," Reid said.

Ted Kennedy D-Ma, and Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y. threatened the mother of all filibusters if this section was not included in Patriot Act II, so several Republican leaders backed down.

"We must once and for all stop fuzz bunny terrorist and closet monsters," Clinton said. "Then and then only will we be free."

Those patriots should know how to act by now...

Will this bill protect our children (or grownups for that matter) from Ted "THE BLOB" Kennedy, Carl "The Penguin" Levin or John "The Joker" Kerry?

I'm afraid there is no help. We are doomed

camojack
They should but it is spring break

The Bogeyman Bill, I love it!

Ms. RightWing, Ink said...

Thanks for checking in nylecoj. I love seeing those numbers roll up like McDee's hamburgers.

Off to bed and praying the bogeyman stays away

You're right, It's summer! I heard the AC fire up several times last night (overnightlow was 71) At 3pm it's 86 outsideand AC + all the ceiling fans aren't able to keep up.

That's another reason I love Hawaii; the daytime temperature averages in the 70's all year 'round.
(At night it's the 60's...)

It's not the snake under the bed that Madame Hillary fears; it's the snake in her bed, that is if the two of them engage in any pillow talk. It's apparent that they were working both sides of the fence on the UAE ports deal. Oh well, maybe that night wasn't THE night for those two "patriots".

This is my third attempt to post a variation of this point. What gives?

Ms RW,Ink: Did you get my email on a breakthrough discovery for MS? Testing is taking place up in your neck of the woods. I'll remail the article if you deleted it. This discovery sound very promising.

Ms. RightWing, Ink said...

onlineanalyst

Yes, I got the article (sorry, I am busy setting up an ebay business)

It is usually the same ol-same ol when it comes to ms drugs--they discovered my ms to l ate in life and the drugs will have little or no effect.

All my neuro will say is do you want to take the shots and get sick for no reason.


As for posting, weekends seem like a poor time for the blog provider

It is physically impossible to remove the bogeyman. We should really stop trying. If Bogeyman removal were accomplished it would be quite difficult to get my 7 year old to behave.

Well,my computer is back up and running or (walking)and thought I would also add one more number to your tally :>)

Ms. RightWing, Ink said...

Oh, how sad. I didn't know your 'puter conked out. Glad to see it is alive and well

onlineanalyst said...

Don't give up hope on that research, MsRW, Ink. You are too feisty not to inquire. The research is going on in Cleveland. Were I in your shoes, I would risk being part of the trial, perhaps as an "advanced case 'control'" to open up the research even further. You are the best judge for yourself, but ...
