METHOD ACTING FOR TRUE PATRIOTS
Act as if it had not passed yet, as if there were not yet wiretapping programs and you had not lost your privacy and freedom from arbitrary surveillance. Yet move with as much consternation and venom as the day you realized you were lied to about the WMD's in Iraq or that Rumsfeld, NORAD and domestic intelligence agencies knew planes were headed for the twin towers.
Here are two action alerts. Say it more than once. The message gets through when you clear your throat and repeat yourself to several friends who are clear headed on what they have lost.
