Ah. The "A congressional declaration makes it so" rhubarb. Congress did VOTE to go to war. They voted yes. Now they claim they were "sneaked" into it. No, they weren't. They had every single impetus to fight during the hearings on this matter. And they didn't. And now they are sobbing that they were lied to.

We know Saddam was in cahoots with Osama. You can't do the old "standard declaration" on this type of matter.

No matter how much you wish it.

If you think for one fat second Democrats WERE NOT PHOTOGRAPHING OR TARGETING conservatives up until President Bush's election in 2000, you must have been "out of the country". And we were NOT in a war, then.

A lot of people who were getting shot and shot at in Kosovo would differ with you as to whether or not they were in a war, but that's another issue. We're better than the Democrats, we don't need to sink to their level to get our message out. We used to believe that our ideas, values and morals were enough to separate us from the opposition. We don't need to use harassing techniques to achieving our goals. They used these techniques, you know the FBI files and such and what did it get them in the end? Eight years of Bush.

It's not a rhubarb. It's Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution.

Congress did VOTE to go to war. They voted yes.

Wrong. They voted to authorize the the President to use military force against Iraq. They did the same thing for Panama in 1989.

You can't do the old "standard declaration" on this type of matter.

Then don't call it one when it's a convenient rhetorical device to excuse something, then deny that it's one because "You can't do the old "standard declaration" on this type of matter."

They tell the press that "hundreds" will show up at their whining sessions. The press arives to find a dozen people, half of which are cops.

I understand your larger point. But "harassing"? These lefties have major PR operations just so they can be in the news. So. They are in the news. Always a victim, however, somethings about liberals are entirely predictable. Taking a picture is not harassive. Unless it is terrorists taking pictures of Monuments, nuclear plants, etc. I don't think the anti-war protestors are monumental nor productively reactive.

So exactly why was it wrong for Bill and Hillary to have those FBI files? Please tell me it's not just because they are democrats because I see a lot of RINOs here who'd defend their right to have them.

You are comparing a legal activity (picture taking) and an illegal activity (using FBI files for political leverage-ie blackmail/extortion). That is a fallacious arguement. Your posts are long on hysterics and short on logic.

So you wouldn't have a problem if abortion protesters had government agents take their photos outside of an abortion clinic?

Friend, when you go out in public, anybody can snap your picture. This is a free country. Now when they do something bad with it that is another story.

The authorities, lately have learned that pictures and video can often keep them from frivolous attacks by lawyers making all kinds of claims. Pictures talk in court.

My point is, that if you are going to protest, you should expect that your picture will be taken and very likely to be used by the media or if your are in a melee, by the courts.

"Friend, when you go out in public, anybody can snap your picture."

Of course they can. You conveniently left out the following from my earlier post:

"Of course the photos would be turned over to the FBI, you know because religious freaks bomb clinics."

Taking the photos was not what I objected to. Turning them over to the Secret Service, who rightfully refused them, is what I had a problem with. Please don't selectively repost my comments out of context.

Friend, you posted a reply to my post and I did you the honor of explaining some of my remarks. Nothing more, nothing less. Bye.
