    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.

    Love your country but distrust your government.

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

    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.

    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.

    Remember Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, etc? Right wing and left wing are FAR more alike than they are different, it’s mostly a matter of the language they use to describe their perverse desire to use violence against anyone they disagree with.

    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”.

    OK there are several things that don’t make a lot of sense. First sorry if you don’t love your country if you own an ereader please down load the public domain letters of when Thomas Jefferson when he was in office, you may find you’re wrong, they are free and does not take too read. Second if you believe that you listen to NPR too much. NPR is pretty good but it is government controlled in the end. Third who is more extreme conservatives who want smaller government or liberals who believe that government should be used to attack people that disagrees with them?

    Did you say that when Bush was doing that? When Senator Obama agreed to protect the phone companies who willingly worked with the govt on warrantless wire taps?

    Violating the law is. Get a tax free status then violate it deserves investigation. It happened for the NAACP. Did that bother you?

    @Michael wme

    Which “Liberals” asked to suspend the Constitution? I don’t know of any. Care to put up some facts to go with you accusations?

    You’re missing the point. The way the IRS went about it was that they were specifically targeting conservative-based groups. If they were specifically targeting… say… those who advanced the causes of hispanic liberals, there would be a media firestorm over how racist the IRS was being. But because it’s conservative groups that are being targeted, it’s okay because they have to be breaking the law, right?

    You are making an assumption that they are.
