Things to Do: REPEAL THE PATRIOT ACT
When this administration started its war on the Constitution and its media blitz against free thought and expression-- what they describe as an attempt to restore presidential power broken by Watergate, and a return to corporate interests destroyed by the New Deal-- I laminated my ACLU card just in case... and sure enough, I've taken it out three times in public to show to people who were bad-mouthing the ACLU. In each case, they apologized for the slur on members of the ACLU. They were verbal bullies. They said they hadn't thought about what they were saying, only repeated cliches of the far-right as an excuse to push someone around.
