Now Obama Wants To Wiretap Your Email
Flopping Aces ^ | 09-28-10 | DrJohn

My, how things change.

Or not.

Remember this?

Eliminate Warrantless Wiretaps. Barack Obama opposed the Bush Administration’s initial policy on warrantless wiretaps because it crossed the line between protecting our national security and eroding the civil liberties of American citizens. As president, Obama would update the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to provide greater oversight and accountability to the congressional intelligence committees to prevent future threats to the rule of law.

Naturally, that went the way of all Obama promises:

On the campaign trail, Barack Obama harshly criticized Bush administration policies allowing warrantless wiretaps. But, since he assumed office as president, Obama's Justice Department has attempted to deny a private organization the right to sue the federal government for wiretapping communications without court authorization.

Ironically, more and more people are missing the old days:

In Warrantless Wiretapping Case, Obama DOJ's New Arguments Are Worse Than Bush's

We had hoped this would go differently.

Friday evening, in a motion to dismiss Jewel v. NSA, EFF's litigation against the National Security Agency for the warrantless wiretapping of countless Americans, the Obama Administration made two deeply troubling arguments.

It’s called Hypocrisy. Obama and his fraud minions on the radical LEFT pontificated against the Patriot Act as a violation of privacy and due-process...

But we all know that radical socialism can only “work” (it never really can- man’s desire to live free eventually overcomes again) when the government has total access and power - think the Soviet Union and the KGB.

But will voters remember come November?

Dear “Ears”: You don’t have to wiretap me I am more than willing to tell you man to “what-ever-you-are” that you are only a puppet for some Marxist bastards. You have never had an origional thought and the sooner you and your union thugs leave office the sooner this great country can start to heal

Hypocrisy. How about the King Family condemning Bush for Wire Taps. Alluding to those put on MLK. And there’s FATBOY Ted Kennedy sitting on stage as if it wasn’t his brothers that did it.

Wow!

That’s gotta be some kind of record.

Four redirects, including three blog links and an Obama Web Site in a single post.

Great example of Equal Opportunity Pimping.

But how many on here would be quite content if it were Republicans doing the same thing?
I still retch at the number of alleged conservatives and pseudo patriots who posted traitorous drivel such as ‘if you aren't doing anything wrong, what do you have to worry about’ when it was in regards to the PATRIOT act.

It's not at all surprising Obama and his running dog lackeys want to check out my e-mail ~ after all, he wants to make a full length video of my latest colonoscopy available on the internet.

These people are perverts.

What’s today’s recipe? I had some lovely eggplant for lunch.

Choose a firm fruit, and wash it thoroughly. Cube into 1” sections. Place in a plastic bag with about a quarter cup of fresh, extra-virgin olive oil and shake until the oil is absorbed. Salt and pepper to taste. Bake in a single layer on a parchment-lined cookie sheet at 350° for forty minutes.

Yum!

You REALLY must be cautious posting such things to Eaker.

He's likely to run down to Montrose and drag a homo into a carwash.

Oh, is that why he always hints about you? He’s projecting?

I shall be much more careful in the future. Assuming I remember. A foolish assumption.

Oh wait. A carwash? He likes illegal aliens too?

When you were a kid, did you like the pajamas with the feet in them, or did you hate them and make your mom cut the footsie parts off?

I'm taking a poll.

This is very important.

I don’t know. We were poor, and my parents couldn’t afford pajamas for five kids.

Never had pajamas with feet. We only had heterosexuals in our house.

I don’t judge them.

I just pressure wash the homo off of’em.

As to gunner I don’t think a standard car wash can get the Cletus funk off him.

O sleep, O gentle sleep,

how have I frightened thee,
that thou no more wilt weigh my eye-lids down
and steep my senses in forgetfulness?
