    So you admit you care nothing for what other Americans think about Dear Leader's health care destruction agenda. Your way or the highway, is that what you want?

    Then you need to explain why you believe gangsters like the Messiah handlers wouldn't use the information you know is being collected.

    And you know this because the DNC sent out an e-mail saying that's not what they're doing? If not that, explain your certainty.

    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 are a staunch defender of homosexual rights correct? For gay marriage?

    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?

    We're talking Democrats here. What they'll do with this information is send hidden requests to the IRS to audit them, get their names on the TSA's Do Not Fly list, and research them to find other ways to destroy their lives, their businesses, and their careers.

    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.

    When it was happening to liberals and war protesters it was just fine, right? the time to be outraged was eight years ago. You are accusing the Obama administration of the same thing that the Bush administration did to it's political enemies.

    As a moderator I would have expected that you would come up with a more intelligent response and not try to project your personal feelings onto others. You clearly have missed the point. That being that this is the tip of an iceberg capable of sinking a Nation if not dealt with in a stern and timely manner. Your tactic is not unlike those of Liberals who attempt to obfuscate the facts and true meaning of my post and create false impressions in place of the truth. The truth is Obama is dangerous as are those who continue to support him in the face of the facts that what he is doing is anti American.
    I was trying to make people think, but alas I seem to have failed in at least in the case of one closet liberal.

    Man, you people seriously have to abandon your hypocrisy. All you can see is mirrors.

    Also, demonstrate your impressive knowlege of current events and tell the class what happened to Billy Dale.

    I thought this would work. See, this is the exact same reasoning the "Very Conservative" of this very board use to justify the Patriot Act. Thanks for proving my point . Would you like me to quote the Conservatives who have said this exact same thing about the Patriot Act or would you like to save their embarassment?

    The desperate defenses of the indefensible continue; but letís look at the relevant point of what Cornyn said was:

    "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."
