    I didn’t realize exercising free speech was a problem for you. Oh, wait… it’s probably because it’s a message with which you disagree. That must be why you think they deserve investigation.

    Well, he is a self-proclaimed Socialist, so it’s not a surprise he has a problem with free speech…

    Those who love their nation ( which I do NOT think is the best of ideas), should never 100% trust anyone…But, this libertarian idea of distrusting our government is NOT good either…
    The problem is, as usual , extremism…We should try to be sane and rational…listen less to right-wing radio and more to NPR..
    less to mainstream religion and more to the Word from Jesus.

    If true, which I doubt…better , by far, to be a socialist than a conservative extremist…
    Remember A. Hitler ??

    Official US policy under Bush, Jr and Obama remains the same: When the government hears that a terrorist attack is imminent, the threat level MUST be lowered from red to green, and the government must tell the American people there is absolutely nothing to be worried about.


    Meanwhile, the authorities know about the threat and do what they can to stop it.


    The Bush, Jr administration had the names of many of the 9/11 attackers and stopped them and checked them for weapons on 9/11, and made absolutely certain they had no weapons before it let them board the planes, but never said anything to the American people. (And now the liberals all complain about Bush, Jr’s incompetence in not suspending the US Constitution BEFORE 9/11, then arresting everyone suspected of possibly thinking about planning an attack and putting them away for life without trial or parole to keep America safe; by waiting until AFTER 9/11 to do that, Bush, Jr allowed the terrorists to kill 3,000 Americans and destroy the World Trade Center.)


    And Obama, having heard that an attack was planned, ordered that no one outside the government must learn of the plan, but the AP published the story.


    This is a serious breach of security, and the government has started by seizing all the AP phone records. When it finds the responsible parties, they will be incarcerated, preferably for life without trial or parole, and subjected to the most enhanced interrogation the government can conceive, as they richly deserve.


    For this breach, the AP should be shut down by the government. No publisher has any right to publish anything not given them by the Government Information Office, and I hope the government punishes all such rogue publishers, since that is the only way to keep the US safe.

    You said: “But, this libertarian idea of distrusting our government is NOT good either…”

    So do you suggest we all just go about our lives and let the government do what it wills because we trust the people in charge?

    Government: we are going to limit the amount of sugar/salt/fat/ in your diet, it’s for your own good. If you use to much we tax you. You can trust me not to be excessive in my assessment of how much you consume. All I need is your shopping receipts …..

    We are going to manage your healthcare. We aim to adjust the cost so millions of the uninsured can have insurace, trust me it will lower premiums for one and all. NO don’t read it, pass it. TRUST me.

    NO, my brother, rather I say trust but verify. Which is what the press should have been doing since 2007 and failed to do.

    Didn’t Hitler and Stalin say the same thing right before the purges? How well did that work out for the Jews and those living in the Ukraine?

    Free speech is for the socialist, not the people, unless they agree with the socialist.

    There is nothing sane or rational about trusting people whose life goal is to exercise power over other people. Read a history book , fer chrissakes. Government is the enemy of humanity.
