    Bush signs Patriot Act-2001.

    Much to the everlasting shame of himself, his Presidency, and our nation's heritage.

    n the morning of 26 October 1984, Leonard L Bailey and his heart transplantation team were gathered around an operating table at Loma Linda University Medical Center in California. They were operating on Stephanie Fae Beauclair, a baby girl who had been born prematurely only 12 days before with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a fatal defect.

    Shortly after 9 am—around an hour and 45 minutes into the operation, with Stephanie’ s body temperature lowered to 68°F—Bailey went to the hospital’ s research laboratory, where an anaesthetised 7 month old female baboon awaited. Bailey removed the baboon’s walnut sized heart, placed it in a container of icy saline slush, and returned to the surgical suite.1

    Baby Fae
    “I arrived with the heart,” Bailey recalled in a 2007 interview. “We made the incision, and went to work.”2 Bailey removed Stephanie’s defective heart. After inserting the new heart and connecting it, Stephanie’s chest cavity was closed and her body temperature slowly increased. “We were blessed,” Bailey said. “It just turned out beautifully. Her response to the surgery was just perfect.

    I'm convinced the intention of the Patriot Act was NOT good. The 911 "incident" was used as the ignition point for the orchestrated plan to put the citizens of America under constant surveillance, "legally" and willingly.

    Proof is that they never bothered to seal off the border! It was about people control, not terrorist control. All the BS to guard against the terrorist attacking in the same manner & ignoring the fact that they rely on surprise!
