    Just read on NBC that the CIA is helping to assassinate FARC leaders in Columbia. What a nice country the U.S. has become! Or maybe it was always like this and it’s just Snowden getting things into the open, in which case i have to say THANK YOU to him.

    Most of our politicians in both parties are “Republicans Now.” Though it should be Plutocrats.

    Ain’t it funny that the Republicans and their enablers in the Corporate Press are constantly trying to slime President Obama with the scandals and mistakes of prior Republican administrations. Read the dates on the documents that Snowden has leaked. So far almost all of them are programs dating before the President was ever sworn in. So that means that for the last 6 months the Press has been raking him over the coals for the actions of George W. Bush.

    “So that means that for the last 6 months the Press has been raking him over the coals for the actions of George W. Bush.”

    An interesting rationalization, Alnicov, but it doesn’t exonerate Obama from continuing the program and expanding it in the 2012 defense budget. Further, this program in it’s present form was started by Carter with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978. All presidents since Carter (Carter inclusive) are guilty of using, abusing, and expanding the program as technology allowed.

    A thought…If McGrumpy had won in 2008 (shudder), or Romney had won in 2012 (euwww), do you REALLY think either one of them would have immediately ordered the NSA to cease and desist from ALL surveillance activities??
    Yeah. Right. In your dreams…

    If McGrumpy had won, we’d have 100,000 more troops in the mid-east for an indefinite time, and if Romoney had won, we’d have Romneycare…

    Senators Wyden and Udall have long challenged “abuses” of law by security agencies, and I agree. Interesting that such “conservatives” as as Kristol defend the policies on one hand, while still criticizing Obama for doing “SOP” activities that HAVE been going on FOR DECADES.


    as to “metadata”, does it belong to the individual, or the phone/internet providers? Actually, the providers, until actual conversations are tapped.


    As to Nixon, my dad was in business with this brother, Don, who overall was a nice guy. Dick however WAS A CROOK, and an incident resulting from that was why my dad left the partnership! My biggest gripe with Nixon was he continued the Viet Nam war with Kissinger for far longer than necessary, to profit “certain folks”. He DID sign some significant and valuable legislation, like NEPA, for which “conservatives” hated him, interesting dichotomy indeed!!

    Did you see that we shot a missile from a drone into a twelve truck convoy in Yemen? We blew up a wedding party and we aren’t even at war with those people.

    If someone is beating a dog, stops by handing the stick to me, and I continue beating the dog, am I guilty of beating a dog?

    Of course.


    What evidence is there for President Obama listening to all of the phone conversations, reading all of the emails, etc, or even a few of them?

    “What evidence is there for President Obama listening to all of the phone conversations, reading all of the emails, etc, or even a few of them?”

    Since the President is the head of the National Security Council, It is unfathomable that he was unaware of the content of high value phone calls or emails, or that he wasn’t aware of the extent of the NSA’s activities. Whether or not he personally read them will never be determined because a claim of national security could (justifiably) be invoked. Whether he was reading other stuff for other reasons will never be known because national security could be claimed.

    We already have 3rd party options. I’ve voted 3rd party since leaving the Democratic Party during the Clinton Administration. Many won’t vote 3rd party because they’re afraid 3rd parties aren’t viable. Of course aren’t viable because more people don’t vote for them.

    ^So you admit it was “W” who personally killed over 5,000 of our troops in two wasted wars, and several hundred thousand civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan, and is responsible for all the drone deaths he set in motion!
