The L.A. Times recently had a story on single mother Tamera Jo Freeman. She was aboard a Frontier Airlines flight to Denver when her two small children began to argue.
Well, the two children ended up spilling a Bloody Mary into Foreman's lap, so she spanked both of them on the thigh three times. In the heat of the moment Foreman cussed out a flight attendant who tried to intervene, and the next thing you know Foreman was cuffed and headed for prison.
She is a domestic terrorist under the Patriot Act.
Her children are now being adopted out to a foster family.
You see, the Patriot Act's definition of "domestic terrorism" includes acts that are "dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State".
So basically anything that you do that is a crime that could conceivably be dangerous to human life in any way is now terrorism.
Being convicted as a terrorist for spanking a child on a plane might only be the beginning of these types of abuses if President Obama does not get this stupid law repealed.
Please call on President Obama and Congress to repeal the Patriot Act now.
If not, perhaps you will be the next one wrongly convicted as a domestic terrorist.
