As the ex-KGB agent Putin has taken up using Obama as a soccer ball lately. What do you think his response to Obama's demands to extradite Snowden will be?

Your post is unclear.
Are you disturbed by the "NSA leaks" or by the NSA spying on American citizens?
Or are you trying to cover for the NSA by a ridiculous diversion to Fox?
Its no wonder Fox can so easily confuse y'all if this confused you:

"I mean in the right way in that we should never be comfortable with the government routinely spying on us."

The site quoted was "newscorpse", perhaps inadvertently making fun of Obama's lack of understanding of "corps" versus "corpse."

<quoted text>It doesn't,but drilling for more oil gets us deeper into debt and dependency to foreign oil---using up your own scarcer oil resources first puts you faster at the mercy of other states with greater oil reserves. Best practices would be to save your own scarce oil (leave it in the ground) and develop more plentiful reserves of energy alternatives that you have more readily at hand and the inexpensive ,simple technology to develop it from the sun, wind, and earth.
Scarce? Who've you been listening to, the Saudis?

Wind, solar and battery power are, at this point, novel possibilities. We can't depend on 'alternatives' that haven't been perfected. Oil utilization has been perfected. The infrastructure is in place, the cost, in comparison, is low. What, exactly, would we "save" our petroleum resources for?

If lower prices and a North Dakota-like economic boom aren't enough, the political implications with the Arab world should be enough to go balls out with "drill, baby, drill."

Galt is bored by the abortion discussion and by Conservatives that allow themselves to get dragged down by this losing issue.
No change will ever occur except by SCOTUS.
Let's focus on something that we can actually change.
Write to Boehner and mcConnel, and all of the rest of your merry band of Morans. They don't have the guts to stand up to the tea party and evangelists

Or to use the polls again and something more applicable.
Those who "approve" being spied on was roughly the same number who approved of Obama's job performance at the time of the polls.
Obama's number have slipped since then.
Perhaps just another odd "coincidence" but about the same number of people who prefer chocolate over vanilla and strawberry.

Spooky what you can do with polling data.

Meanwhile, the most prominant voices in your Party can't get into a Syrian Civil War fast enough!
The prominent Senate voices in the Republican Party are now Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio.

McCain and Graham are history, convenient foils for the Democrats and their lapdog media.

Obama plans a government program to develop a magic fuel that will save the environment and make oil obsolete.
He believes bureaucratic pressure and economic hardship will 'force' the invention of this new source. Typical strong-arm mentality.

Oil is the mother's milk of world economic growth.

I don't think anyone likes the idea of being spied on, but we are powerless. The machine is too big for anyone to conquer, no matter who runs for President. Who expands these powers? Congress.
Perhaps we are not meant to know the extent if these practices, if we know then so do our enemies.
Do you really think the NSA is listening to Aunt Battie Lou's and Whatever's conversations?
Ummmm, NSA is under the Executive Branch with Congressional oversight.

Doesn't matter if I'm worried about them spying on Carol, its what else they can do with the capacity we allow them. Should the government be free to spy on its domestic "enemies" a la Nixon?

We CAN do something. Instead of being so concerned with supporting a winner we could concern ourselves with voting for people who don't support the machine these two parties have built.

The people are sick of obstructionism, you'll never get the Presidency for a long time, your party will have to get rid of the teaparty
The Tea Party is an asset, as long as their anti-tax agenda is not corrupted by the fundamentalist cult Christians.

The Iraq War ended before Obama took office.
Some people get so confused.
While others, like you, are just plain stupid and come here peddling outrageous lies.

"Iraq war ended before Obama took office??"

Funny, the surrender document that Bush signed left combat troops in Iraq until "U.S. forces will be completely out of Iraq by December 31, 2011"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S.%E2%80%93Ira...

Seems Obama took office in Jan. 2009. So we had combat forces and Americans dying in Iraq for 3 years of Obama's administration.

Is there anything a post menopausal old dirtbag like you won't lie about?? It appears not.

I caught you in yet another lie, and I haen't been here for weeks!!

Your Obamaphobia is making you crazier by the day.

Both you and your gay lover from Nebraska.
