The government already has a list of everyone's e mail address and all of their information including internet history and political party affiliation. Cornyn knows this for a fact.
Remember back when all of the liberals were mad about the NSA collecting e mails and internet traffic information on all Americans? Remember when conservatives said only traitors and terrorists have anything to worry about? Where was Cornyn?
Remember when just being an anti-war protester was enough to get you on the terror watch list or the no-fly list? Remember when the FBI infiltrated dozens of peace activist groups? Where was Cornyn?
There was a time when conservatives could have been outraged over government gathering information on us but that time was 8 years ago.
I see nothing harmful about this very public, legal and transparent gathering of a specific type of info, why did conservatives see nothing wrong with a secret, illegal, overly broad collection of information on all of us?
As far as I know the NSA still has the ability to spy on each and every one of us for whatever reason. As long as conservatives thought it only happened to liberals it was alright. Conservatives put these tools into the hands of the government and attempted to make it perfectly legal, time is long past to be suddenly outraged.
I'm guessing that you're a staunch supporter of illegal immigrants having right sin this country yes? Allow them to have emergency medical coverage, go to school on our dime, etc?
I'm guessing you had no issues with war protesters and were staunch opponents of GWB's "free speech zones" and called them unamerican for questioning a president during a crisis other such things right?
You know because...
They came for the gay people,
and I did not speak up because I was not gay
Then they came after the illegal immigrants,
and I did not speak up because I was not illegal
Then they came after war protesters,
and I did not speak up because I supported the war
Then they came for me -
Do you realize that no matter how famous that idiotic bit of dribble is its so hypocritically overused its not even funny any longer?
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
One clear shot....climb the tree and see who sent off the major branches, and inform their employers that their computers are being used in an inappropriate manner the Messiah finds objectionable.
I was trying to make people think, but alas I seem to have failed in at least in the case of one closet liberal.
"I can only imagine the level of justifiable outrage had your predecessor asked Americans to forward e-mails critical of his policies to the White House," Cornyn wrote.
I can hear claims of Nazi storm troopers had Bush done such a childish effort on the part of this Administration.
Yes; "ve vill find out who is lying about our Health Care reform efforts and destroy zem."
