    LOS ANGELES - For the first time, a federal judge has declared unconstitutional a section of the USA Patriot Act that bars giving expert advice or assistance to groups designated foreign terrorist organizations.

    In a ruling handed down late Friday and made available Monday, U.S. District Judge Audrey Collins said the ban is impermissibly vague in its wording.

    At this rate it won't be long until the Constitution is unconstitutional.

    I like what Bush said about reeling in these radical judges!

      You mean it is not already?

      Who do those judges think they are.. not interpreting the law the same as he does?!
      Happiness is a belt-fed weapon.

        I was taught:
        Executive branch enforced the laws.
        Legislative branch makes the laws.
        Judicial branch interprets the laws.

        And today:
        Executive branch cowtows to the voting majority.
        Legislative branch cowtows to the voting majority.
        Judicial branch has a free-for-all.
