    Haymarket's "support" of the 2nd Amendment, a right he believes we never had.

    No sarcasm. It was cool. Like one of my favorite Ralph Nader quotes when he was trying to tell people to engage politically:

    "You better turn onto government or government will turn on you."


    This statement you made:

    Governments don't give up powers, people do give up outrage...

    I've thought for some time and I believe it is something that is calculated by politicians which is why they introduce garbage bills like SOPA and then just let people burn themselves out combatting it then just reintroduce it soon after it's defeat knowing that people can't sustain the fight.

    Why does FOXNews spend more time on this Faux-issue than they do on their owner wiretapping citizens in the UK?

    Face it folks, privacy is subjective. The validations for violating said privacy is also subjective.

    I think we would all be surprised to know just how much about us is available for public or private disclosure, should one take the time to dig.
    So youre ok with Obama doing this?

    Congress doesn't renew it. Obama has someone go to FISA every three months. You said he wouldn't be doing this if Bush hasn't made us all afraid. So Bush made Obama afraid?

    I did not say he wouldn't be going to FISA. That's you building a straw man. I said absolutely nothing about FISA. I was referring to the Patriot Act. A bill that would never have passed congress without hyping fear after 9/11 and ramming it through overnight.

    I keep saying that I don't approve of Obama doing this yet you righties keep trying to defend your party by trying to pin it all on Obama as if he invented this shyte.
