    The ‘bad’ part of Somalia. You mean there is a ‘GOOD’ part of Somalia?

    Since the Obamanation appeared, freedoms have taken a hard hit…though they have been on a slow decline for some time.

    Absolutely. It was Obama who pushed through PATRIOT. And Obama’s administration who defended torture, I mean enhanced interrogation. And Obama was responsible for Abu Ghraib. And Obama opened Guantanamo.

    Somewhere out there there must be black prisons with names such as “Camp Cheney”, “Bush Bastille”, “Ashcroft Asylum”, “Rice Detention Center”!!!!

    The bad part IS the good part – the rest is even worse.

    Yes the real enemy are the Plutocrats who own both official mummified parties. Once you understand that fact you can see much more clearly.

    The good part is the unrecognized N. Somalia called Somaliland. Since 1991, has their own flag and govt.

    Leftists have short memories. Only one Democrat senator voted against the Patriot Act, and President Obama’s reauthorization – of essentially the same bill – flew through without leftist opposition.

    Thank goodness leftists have engaged the war on terrorism. Instead of waterboarding the bad guys, and mining information to break the networks, now we just loft an occasional drone and let the plotters continue in anonymity. In 2008 al Qaeda was essentially dead, destroyed, but has since rebuilt itself unmolested.

    You should have checked. Your own memory is less than clear and too self serving. I checked the facts here. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/2chambers/post/senate-votes-to-proceed-on-four-year-reauthorization-of-key-patriot-act-provisions/2011/05/23/AFf7e39G_blog.html

    The eight no votes on Monday night were Paul and Sens. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Dean Heller (R-Nev.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.).


    Six of the eight voted no to the previous extension in February. Murkowski had voted yes in February, and Heller, who was sworn into the Senate earlier this month, was still a member of the House (he had voted no as a House member).


    The 18 who did not vote on Monday were Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Scott Brown (R-Mass.), Thad Cochrad (R-Miss.), Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), David Vitter (R-La.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).

    He’s probably referring to the original vote. It passed the Senate 99-1 in 2002. Only Russ Feingold voted against it.
