It’s all in the name, right? Wrong.

Despite days of intense media coverage about the USA Freedom Act, Americans on the streets of New York have no idea what it actually is, with some even believing the bill gives Americans their freedoms.

The USA Freedom Act passed the House on Tuesday and President Obama signed it into law that same day. According to many analysts, the legislation is actually just as bad as the expired Patriot Act, but those details didn’t seem to concern shoppers in Times Square, who were struggling to come to grips with far simpler concepts.

One man said he was “seriously confused” about the Patriot Act turning into the Freedom Act, while another didn’t know what either pieces of legislation were, but that the latter sounded better because freedom.

Another man thought the Freedom Act was about not discriminating against people, while another individual thought it was about safeguarding “freedom of speech” (it’s actually about the mass monitoring of speech via phone surveillance).

A woman displayed more sense despite the fact she also had no clue what the USA Freedom Act was, remarking that the bill would probably “take our freedom away.”

“There is no better choice than freedom,” commented another woman. Chances are she hasn’t read the bill, which restarts the bulk collection of phone call data that was temporarily suspended after the Patriot Act expired on Sunday.

Lori Harfenist’s previous conversations with the American public don’t make for comfortable viewing either. No one knows what the TPP is (one guy thought it was a brand of toilet paper), while some couldn’t recall any information about the most important event of the 20th century – World War II.

As you can tell from the video below, the zombie plague sweeping America doesn’t appear to be coming to an end any time soon.

    • Like the “Affordable care act” My premiums have gone up 25% a year for the last 5 years, and next year I hear HC costs are going to double. Where ARE all these people who aren’t paying for HC thru work or whatever?
      AND that doesn’t include all the extra taxes that have been and will be soon put in place. UN real. I can’t believe I’ sharing a country with some many ^*&*&#$*& Morons.

      • Amen! I was paying $1,000 a month for medical insurance. I did a check to see if the ACA would save me money. $1,500 a month with a higher deductible and hardly anything covered. Morons for sure. But if you look at the major media … heck just look at the Yahoo home page, every article is nothing but about how racist Americans are, how the “vast majority” of Americans say illegals should be able to stay, how Bruce Jenner is a hero. If I remember correctly he was recently involved in a car accident in which a lady was killed. Yeah, real hero.

      • The left declared war on America and they have really stepped it up the last 2 decades. Frankly, they’ve gotten good at it. I think they all get emails from a central strategy room with strategy and talking points, becuase they are always on the same page. Not the repubs. There’s probably not two of them that would say the same thing about anything.
        I don’t think enough on the right even realize they’re at war with us.
