Waterboarding & torture?
Holder himself testified that intent is critical, and if it is not to produce long term harm or used in vengeance, it is not torture. That's why some of our troops can be subjected to it.
The photos being buried?
As noted, it won't do anything to release them except have a few idiots idiocy create potential mayhem. Obama was a tool for even suggesting they be released.
Excess? If you mean government excess, government intrusion, government red tape, costly and failed government programs (Freddie & Fannie, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, all the Deptartments that can dictate to free people), and the perverse taxation of people's labor and then being told paying more in taxes is "Patriotic" ... if you mean that "excess" has created massive debt, then I'm with ya.
Hope.You think I'm wrong? Let me ask you this: how far in the future are you able to look? Don't you find it shortening. I can't look down the road three months without it all becoming hazy and uncertain. Don't you feel like, "sh.., anything might happen." That's disintegration.
Change.Unless that is, you believe Obama. He said we've come back from the brink of economic ruin. He said his administration did it, but that we can't rest on our laurels. Healthcare has to be fixed, education, etc. He says all this and in a couple of days GM will be bankrupt, our money is becoming worthless paper, everyone's retirement is wiped out and millions are out of work over the last six months. The stock market rises and falls for no reason at all. It's even being said that the age old, "buy and hold" strategy is a failed one. People now have to buy and sell into highs and lows quite actively to secure their future--that's called a casino.
Unite.Can you really see four full years of Barak Obama? Can you imagine the psychological torture of four years of phoney optimism in the face of a declining nation? The band is playing and the Titanic is sinking.
