And ill go you one further. I can see many more instances of our intelligence agencies working against our interests. That old melodramatic saw of how they save America every day, but its so secret we can never know the details has been worn very thin.

But anyway, do you deny that American people and their private communications are targeted by the NSA?
Or do you deny that Homeland Security has named constitution admirers, former soldiers, Christians, gun owners, TEA members and Ron Paul supporters as terror threats?
Or maybe you deny that Obama has not equated TEA thinking as a domestic threat. Maybe you deny that the Military in numerous documented instances has cast Christian and TEA as terror threats in training while downplaying Jihadi threats. Maybe you deny that the standard military enemy in exercises of “Orange republic” or “blue nation” has been replaced with a TEA insurgency that the US military must suppress.

My comment was solid. And before such thinking permeated our government, that is when conservatives supported our intelligence agencies. Doing so now is not really very patriotic. At least not in the Founders/Bill of Rights/Independence Hall/1776 sense.

I dunno. I'm ready for whatever of the possibilities might arise.

Your questions:

But anyway, do you deny that American people and their private communications are targeted by the NSA?

Targeted? No. Targeting random American people would be fruitless and wasteful of valuable time and money. I don't believe that the NSA is wasting time and money watching people that don't need watching.

Or do you deny that Homeland Security has named constitution admirers, former soldiers, Christians, gun owners, TEA members and Ron Paul supporters as terror threats?

Yeah, they have. It's stupid.

Or maybe you deny that Obama has not equated TEA thinking as a domestic threat. Maybe you deny that the Military in numerous documented instances has cast Christian and TEA as terror threats in training while downplaying Jihadi threats. Maybe you deny that the standard military enemy in exercises of “Orange republic” or “blue nation” has been replaced with a TEA insurgency that the US military must suppress.

I'm quite sure that Obama equates the TEA party with any number of domestic threats. I don't really care what he thinks. But I do not believe that the U.S. Military will fire on American civilians even when ordered. They are us, and we are them.
