Welcome to the Machine. The USA PATRIOT Act has been renewed for another four years.

You bet. Illegal searches of personal and business records? That's just how it is these days, because, you know, terrorism.

It appears that any hopes progressives may have had that President Obama would undo the Bush-era security state are unfounded. Whither from here? Abe and Joe survey the damage.
