How to be bipartisan

Also, in the news...

According to this report, Congress recently approved the USA Patriot Improvement and Reauthorization Act; with a vote of 89 - 10, with 1 not voting. This new piece of legislation reauthorizes all expiring provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act, while adding additional safeguards to protect Americans' privacy and civil liberties, strengthening port security, and providing tools to combat terrorism.

Whether you agree with the vote or not, one thing you can say: the widespread Congressional approval shows that, partisanship aside, Democrats and Republicans can actually work together on something. Though they didn't all agree on the Patriot Act (Personally, I hate it), at least they're all willing to work with it...with some adjustments.

This, to me, is the first step to leading the nation toward recovery.

Well, if we're going to wind up having ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT to take over the world, we have to start here.

I'm being sarcastic, by the way...

Your sarcasm really needs work.

For a second there, I thought you were serious! I wouldn't be suprised if the Illuminati is plotting some conspiracy to form a new world order.

Or am I just being paranoid...?
