Here's a Surprise: The ACLU Takes A Stand

There are a number of blue-blooded American citizens who think that the ACLU should be banned.

There are a number of other Americans who thank the ACLU for restoring America to its roots.

Whatever your beliefs are, here's some news you may not have heard. Not the news that's in the news. That news is that the ACLU stopped accepting federal money.

The ACLU accepted federal money?

Say it ain't so.

OK, the ACLU isn't what it claimed to be. There's a surprise. Of course, the ACLU blames its refusal to accept money on the federal government's Patriot Act and the McCarthyist "watch lists."

You know, it all comes down to the money.

Let's see. It's mid-2004, and the Patriot Act was passed in 2001.

It only took the ACLU three years and $1,500,000 in federal money to figure it out. What's the real reason? I don't know. Maybe the federal government decided to cut the ACLU off, and the ACLU just decided to sluff it off on a "principled" stance.

What's your guess?
