Say Goodbye to Your Rights, Hello to The Police State

This article has some details about the new, expanded "Patriot Act". "The proposal appears to grant the FBI more power to seek information from banks, hospitals, libraries, and so on through "administrative subpoenas" without prior judicial oversight. The subpoenas are only supposed to be used for terrorism or clandestine intelligence cases.

One other detail: the FBI may designate that the subpoenas are secret and punish disclosure of their existence with up to one year in prison (and five years if the disclosure is deemed to "obstruct an investigation.")"

Might as well wad the Bill of Rights up and try for a three-pointer. What happened?
