It's still post-9/11. We had a terrible reminder of what can be done just recently in Boston.
I remember when the Patriot Act (that allowed this type of surveillance) was put into place by the Bush/Cheney Cabal. It has been reinstated by our Congress several times since 2001. All I heard from the right then was this collective whine: "if you don't have anything to hide, why would you object?" Well, now that we have a black president, you've got your panties all in a wad over EVERTHING this president has done to try to heal this broken country. I guess you'll just have to get over it.
Maybe you need to brush up on your history, drivel boy. Although North Korea is officially a socialist republic and elections are held, it has been described as a totalitarian and Stalinist dictatorship ...
The only politician who granted "amnesty for all" was Ronald Reagan. I have not heard anybody even mention unconditional citizenship, ever!
I have yet to meet a right-winger that was interested in the truth. They use their juvenile, 3rd grade logic to call those that present facts, silly, stupid names. Lyin4Life, you lost all credibility on this board years ago. See if you can digest facts instead of the constant hate talk you apparently inhale everyday.
Bartmess, hate to get math into this equation, but there were 300 groups targeted, 75 of which were right-wing political groups. Can you do the math? None of which were rejected. Only one group was denied this status and it was a left-wing organization.
According to Politifact, One Political Party Has Their Pants On Fire. Guess Which?
A recent study by the Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA) has found that Republicans have lied far more than Democrats in the first 4 months of Obama's second term (January 20th through May 22nd, 2013). The study looks at ratings by the fact-checking organization Politifact of 100 statements (46 by Democrats and 54 by Republicans), finding that
32% of Republican statements were rated "false" or "pants on fire," while only 11% of Democratic claims earned the same ratings.
54% of Democratic statements were rated as mostly true or true, but only 18% of Republican claims rated the same.

Unfortunately, John Bratton, money talks and stupidity is the new religion in the good ol' usofa.
No, Roger Bartmess, it's you and your ilk that have turned this nation into a divided country. Even before President Obama took office the right-wing haters (McConnell and Blimpbaugh, just to name a couple) were calling for his failure, which in turn means failure for our country. You and your moronic cohorts that have bought into these lies spoon fed you by over-paid pundits and other un-American activists, who have habitually stated their main goal was to destroy our government. That is treasonous!
