    I believe I heard Bloomberg say on Letterman that he would not run for mayor again when his term expires this year.

    Freedom for everyone who agrees with and abides by the pseudo-conservative ideal, that is.

    “Libs love taking away freedoms one step at a time.”

    The so called “Libs” aren’t the ones preventing gay citizens from enjoying the same rights as straight citizens, nor do they seek to shut down a women’s health care organization on the utterly false pretense that federal funds are used for abortions.

    Yeah, it was conservatives that voted to allow me (MTF transsexual) and my girlfriend (also MTF transsexual) the ability to get legally married with all the same benefits of a straight/cisgender couple.

    And hey, I see no problem with restricting what size crap drinks a restaurant can serve. I don’t want any more than a 12 oz. cup (no ice) should I decide have a soda. Want more? Buy seconds!

    Also, studies show that reduced portion sizes (on smaller plates, so it looks bigger) will still leave you satisfied.

    It isn’t just Republicans pushing loss of constitutional rights. The Democrats were for the NDAA which is also a little scary.

    Indefinite detention: yet another reason war should be avoided. Tell me why we went to Gulf War I again? Are we safer because we invaded Grenada? And why are we in Afghanistan?

    I have stopped checking out books from the library. I purchase my books with cash. I use every privacy control I can find when I use the internet. I drive a car which has no computer.

    And to turn another argument on its head, if someone checks out a book about guns, don’t you want to make sure he doesn’t intend to use it? He might be a nutcase who will pass the background check, you know….

    Pete Townsend was working on a documentary on child pornography. He was arrested for doing research.

    And how would you like it if it was decided that everyone who calls Obama a socialist is now an enemy combatant? Hope you like the view from Guantanamo…..for the rest of your life.

    I recommend you pay more attention. Jon Stewart hardly ever needs to criticize a Republican; he brings up an “event from the day” and plays a videotape of a Republican saying something incredibly stupid. Or a Fox commentator, which is mostly the same thing.The videos are not doctored.

    ““enhanced interrogation” gave us some good info”.

    Not true. Ask the John McCain who existed before they replaced his brain. He gave names when he was tortured: the offensive line of the Green Bay Packers.

    If you were being tortured, would you want to tell your torturers anything that would be to their advantage? Torture produces information. None of it will be reliable.

    We did get some useful information from the suspected terrorist who was diabetic. We offered him some sugar-free cookies. He was surprised to find we weren’t like we had been described, and was willing to cooperate. If we act like the Great Satan, no one will want to help our cause.

    LOL, ya just gotta love this . . .

    " . . . Anywhere bushy went he never saw the dissenters. He was too childish, too weak and too self-centered to allow anything but yes-men near him. And when someone did dissent in is presence or near him they were arrested.

    4 hours later this gem . . .

    “Be careful with your answer, partisan rhetoric will simply demonstrate your level of integrity and hatred for reality and the truth.”

    Obviously doesn’t understand irony . . .

    Obama uses a similar law to protect himself; a law that has been on the books in some form or fashion since 1971. But don’t let that change your meme.

    Now I know you have a problem with links that don’t have a .gov domain in them, but . . .

    “Every war has indefinite detention. The main effect of the Patroit Act was to tear down the wall (put up by Clinton) between information being shared by the FBI & CIA.”

    You seriously need to go to gpo.gov and read “PUBLIC LAW 107–56—OCT. 26, 2001”
    UNITING AND STRENGTHENING AMERICA BY
    PROVIDING APPROPRIATE TOOLS REQUIRED
    TO INTERCEPT AND OBSTRUCT TERRORISM
    (USA PATRIOT ACT) ACT OF 2001’

    As for indefinite detention, that isn’t as cut and dried as you might think. Duke Law has about a page and a half on detention and habeas corpus including links to court cases.
