If your library records can't be read by FBI, we all die

At least, that appears to be what Preznit Shrub's message to America was today. Nevermind that the Patriot Act's more evil provisions have never been used to catch any terrorists (Dubya's Justice Department is 0 for 1000 when it comes to terror convictions -- they're almost as competent as the Preznit himself). If Congress doesn't vote to renew those provisions, we will all be slaughtered in our bead by hoards of Islamofascists, says Dear Leader!

So remember, write your congressman, and tell him that you want the FBI to be able to look at his library checkout records at any time. After all, what if some Congressman checks out "Terrorism Daily"? Why, he might go berserk and kills us all!

Obligatory wingnuttery: Wingnuts say that the Patriot Act's library provisions aren't evil because "they've never been used". Well, if they've never been used, why do we need them?
