The 4th amendment is VERY clear and it trumps any make-believe laws. I have been reflecting on whether, if I thought if I saw a clear violation of the constitution, would I have had the guts to do anything about it. I honestly would not like to end up dead or in a SuperMax 8x10 foot cell seeing light through a tiny sliver of a window up by the ceiling for the rest of my life.

Going to Hong Kong was very, very clever of him. He’s no dope. It’s the only place they will have a hard time getting him. I think the man is playing chess, not checkers, which is p.o.’ing a bunch of people! Seeing Lindsey Graham having a moment of homo anger is always worth a good laugh! His panties are all up in a bunch (what a sissy).
Also, this totally destroys Obama’s ‘cred’ for his cult followers. This is helping to make that Kenyan a very lame duck.

Personally someone has to starting fighting this beast we’ve made or we’re all done for.
