Carol, are you reading this? Try not to forget three minutes later.
I read the last part too.

"In the midst of the presidential campaign in 2008, Congress overhauled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to bring federal statutes into closer alignment with what the Bush administration had been secretly doing. The legislation essentially legalized certain aspects of the program. As a senator then, Barack Obama voted in favor of the new law, despite objections from many of his supporters. President Obama’s administration now relies heavily on such surveillance in its fight against Al Qaeda.

"But since Mr. Obama took office, the N.S.A. has sometimes violated the limits imposed on spying on Americans by the new FISA law. The administration has acknowledged the lapses but said they had been corrected."

Obama only blames Bush when he's not in lockstep with his foreign policies. Just doesn't get the same scrutiny by his lapdog media.

OK, fair enough.
But using drone attacks against American citizens on American soil is a gross escalation of the abuses.
Obama can just agree never to do so. End of story.
I'm not up to date on any of the new homeland security measures or related legislation.

So give me some time to check it out.

A successful business does not need billions of taxpayer dollars in subsidies to 'survive'. If it does, we should put it out of our misery, rather than bail it out of its own overflowing shithouse three or four times a year.
My manifesto is not anti-capitalism, fella. It's anti-greed, anti-oligarchy, and anti-cronyism. Figure out the difference.
May I remind you that this is America, and yet many thousands of those companies' employees make so little they are eligible for government aid? It's always the workers expected to take less, so that the owners can make more. That doesn't even make good business sense, when the workers are also the consumers, but the owners have left them little to no economic means, to buy what they need, much less what they might 'want'.
Wage slaves do not comprise a free society.
You like it the way it is? Stupid is as stupid does, sir. Keep calm and carry on.

Did you read about Obama's former press secretary, Robert Gibbs, speaking out and saying he "was told by the White House not to acknowledge the drone program and DENY it even existed"? He said it was one of the first things he was told.
Why would a president tell his press secretary to lie to the press and to the American public about something like that?
Why would Colin Powell lie to make the case for war when he knew it was a lie?

Living in a NO work zone. Waiting for your food stamps to come in. Talking on a free obamaphone, wasting away in obamaville on a "Blue Magnet" preserve. Definitely selfish & liberal lily.

Rand Paul "droned" on and on for how many hours today ? Did anyone stay awake?
Guess he feels strongly about this appointment, especially someone who would give Obama sole authority to decide which Americans get zapped by a drone.

i WOULDN'T ARGUE WITH YOU THAT our police can be very heavy handed at times. Likely a result of so many crimes, perhaps tied to drug laws. I learned when young the best course is a low profile and to obey traffic laws, keeps your encounters with the police to an absolute minimum.
The police never seem to be disciplined either.
Many of them on steroids and testosterone, selling drugs, shaking down the street dealers for personal gain.
They follow people, profile them, pull them over for untrue things, tail lights, seatbelts, etc

While you stupidly speak of prototypes and limited production in Ford's early years, before he invented the assembly line, I'm talking about the car started the production line and the $5 per day wage, the Model T. Followed by the Model A, followed by the Model B. DUH
The Model T of 1908-27 sold 15,000,000 plus.
The successor, the Model A of 1927-31 sold 4,849,340.
The successor, the Model B of 1932-34 sold 800,000. It was the Depression.
The famous "Little Deuce Coupe" is a Model B Ford. From 1932.
Now stay stupid, and stay away from me.
You are still straining like a boy in Potty Training.

You originally said that the Model T begat the following models.

And here you are STILL trying to paint it over with nonsense productions numbers and production years numbers.

Don't try selling used cars, Dood. You'll starve.

As someone else said, "Nobody lied. The evidence supported the fact that Iraq had WMD. The fact that Iraq prevented UN weapons inspectors from doing their jobs also raised suspicions. After 9/11, the risk of having a country with links to Islamic terrorist groups develope WMD was not something that any US president could allow. As a matter of fact, there was cross party support for the war initially."

The UN already believed Saddam had WMDs so who did he lie to?

On civil liberties, obama has claimed the right to assassinate American citizens without charge or trial.

Obama's big and more government Gestapo Senate Bill 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act was signed into law by obama.

I'm not talking about Al-Awlaki. He had definitely become an enemy of the United States. However, his 16-year-old son was killed in the process.

I'm talking about drones right here in our own country being targeted at "suspected" Americans.
