    And the only way to do that is to shrink the size of the government, and gut the ranks of incumbents. That, and reform the tax code so corporate lobbyists can’t get tax favors for supporting a politician’s agenda. That’s where a flat tax would come in very handy. Would it suck in some areas? Yeah. But it would eliminate crony capitalism.

    Would help, but crooks will always find a way.

    “Over 40,000 deaths per year due to lack of access to health care in the only developed country in the world without some form of universal health insurance is the most incivil part of the discussion. Add to that being the only developed country in the world where medical bankruptcy occurs, and is still the leading cause of personal bankruptcy. Only in America.”

    It is 5 o’clock somewhere. That is When Obama clocks out and goes up stairs. The need for plausible deniability is high on 9 11 12, Obama needs his beauty sleep for the fund raiser in the morning. Then there is the talk shows and the Lies in front of the UN.
    And let us not forget Obama knows nothing, nothing, nothing I tell you about scandals. If it did not poll well he is against it and shocked and and and just nothing. So go back to chanting Hope and Change, Hope and Change and everything will be alright..

    Interesting that Benson ignores all the FOIA denials under the Cheney/Ashcroft/Gonzales regime operating under “W”.


    While in NONsensitive areas and issues, FOIA needs to be honored, it’s interesting that Republicans such as Issa, Cruz, and Boehner have no problem demanding that even classified true security issues be revealed, so they can criticize this administration for yes, carrying on exactly what Bush folks did, except this administration does seem to be much more concerned about compliance with the law. The problems of course ARE keyed to the “Patriot Act”, perhaps the worst piece of legislation the Republicans ever pushed through on a “petrified in terror public”.

    I’m agin the act, but are you telling me no Dems voted for it? Weren’t they in the (small) majority in the Senate, and hence, could have stopped it? But, of course, the Dems are never to blame for bad things.

    @Ionizer

    You are correct that the dems are complicit. Back in those days, especially in times of crisis, even politicians put aside their differences and provided a united front, sometimes (and this is a good example) to a fault. Good thing THOSE days are long gone.

    Another good example of what happens when people vote for a bill without reading it first.

    Let’s be fair: this bill long ago was written, proofed, re-written, and tweaked to ensure a specific desired fundamental change in the structure of the balance of powers. It was kept for just such an occasion, when a scared stiff populace was too willing to trust its leadership to care what it had to give up. The perpetrators were just waiting for a good emergency to be able to spring it on us. You have to admire their planning. If only we knew who “they” are.

    But that’s what Pelosi demanded.


    “this bill long ago was written, proofed, re-written, and tweaked to ensure a specific desired fundamental change”

    Like Obamacare. You think 2000 pages were written in an afternoon over beers at the WH?
