Perhaps you should actually read the Patriot Act and Executive Orders putting it into effect, then you'd actually have some idea about what comes out of your mouth.

Oh, yeah. I remember all the journalists and Congressmen and millions of private citizens the government spied on while Bush was in office.... I just forgot their names.

Can you remid us of who the government spied on while Bush was president? We've got actual names of actual individuals the government spied on under Obama.

alright so let me get this straight--why are premiums going to be higher for healthy people? I am sorry if I missed your post explaining this.

WASHINGTON (AP)- Several times every day, at airports across the country, passengers are trying to walk through security with loaded guns in their carry-on bags, purses or pockets, even in a boot. And, more than a decade after 9/11 raised consciousness about airline security, it's happening a lot more often.

In the first six months of this year, Transportation Security Administration screeners found 894 guns on passengers or in their carry-on bags, a 30 percent increase over the same period last year. The TSA set a record in May for the most guns seized in one week - 65 in all, 45 of them loaded and 15 with bullets in the chamber and ready to be fired. That was 30 percent more than the previous record of 50 guns, set just two weeks earlier.

Last year TSA found 1,549 firearms on passengers attempting to go through screening, up 17 percent from the year before.

In response to a request from The Associated Press, the agency provided figures on the number of firearm incidents in 2011 and 2012 for all U.S. airports, as well as the number of passengers screened at each airport. The AP analyzed the data, as well as weekly blog reports from the agency on intercepted guns from this year and last year.

TSA didn't keep statistics on guns intercepted before 2011, but officials have noticed an upward trend in recent years, said spokesman David Castelveter.

Some of the details make officials shake their heads.

As one passenger took off his jacket to go through screening in Sacramento, Calif., last year, TSA officers noticed he was wearing a shoulder holster, and in it was a loaded 9 mm pistol. The same passenger was found to have three more loaded pistols, 192 rounds of ammunition, two magazines and three knives.

Screeners elsewhere found a .45-caliber pistol and magazine hidden inside a cassette deck. Another .45-caliber pistol loaded with seven rounds, including a round in the chamber, was hidden under the lining of a carry-on bag in Charlotte, N.C. A passenger in Allentown, Pa., was carrying a pistol designed to look like a writing pen. At first the passenger said it was just a pen, but later acknowledged it was a gun, according to TSA.

A passenger in March at Bradley Hartford International Airport in Connecticut had a loaded .38-caliber pistol containing eight rounds strapped to his lower left leg. At Salt Lake City International Airport, a gun was found inside a passenger's boot strapped to a prosthetic leg.

TSA doesn't believe these gun-toting passengers are terrorists, but the agency can't explain why so many passengers try to board planes with guns, either, Castelveter said. The most common excuse offered by passengers is "I forgot it was there."..."

I notice they have a tendency to shoot their mouths off first, spend money for a worthless and time consuming investigating, then walk away as if nothing happened.

Their idea of saving and protecting Americans.

I wonder if he'll use these events as part of his reelection campaign? Or if his opponent will have to bring it to the fore?

Then perhaps those people your lying ass claims to know can tell you about the routine practice of generating birth certificates for people not born in Hawaii during that time.
That would be an interesting discussion. Ask your supposed friends about this practice and get back with us.

<quoted text>
I can't post everything from the court document. That's why I gave you the link...however, according to the court...
The Fourth Amendment guarantees "[t]he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.....this Court uniformly has held that the application of the Fourth Amendment depends on whether the person invoking its protection can claim a "justifiable," a "reasonable," or a "legitimate expectation of privacy" that has been invaded by government action." According to the Supreme Court, no one has a legitimate expectation to expect that no history of the telephone numbers that have been dialed will be collected. That is the bottom line.
So, since the Supreme Court has already ruled that the collection of data like that collected by the NSA is constitutional, I don't to what "government's unconstitutional activities" you are referring.
So, what you're saying is, a person who makes a personal telephone call to another person without including a group of people in the call doesn't have a reasonable expectation of privacy?

Then what you're saying is there has never been any need for any warrant to have ever been issued allowing the government to tap a phone.

Do you even listen to the horsecrap that comes out of your mouth?

How about you find a ruling by the Supreme Court that states evidence such as a phone conversation obtained without a warrant was illegally obtained and cannot be used. There are, what? A thousand of those cases?

And, you can find another thousand cases where the ruling was the government needs a warrant to read your email.

Any information on your computer is private information. If this weren't true, then, for one thing, 9/11 would never have happened because there would not have been a liberal federal judge to prevent the FBI from looking at Moussaoui's computer and reading the goddam detailed plans of the 9/11 attack, you dumbass.

The 4th Amendment guarantees that the government cannot acquire personal information on individuals without a warrant.
It's that goddam simple.
Read the goddam Constitution, dufus.

One had a pen gun! How can you possible deny it at first, then admit it later?

The astounding thing to me is the weapons are loaded.

Even more astounding is in many cases, one round is already in the chamber!

"Your" system seems to be dominated by Marxist communists and muslim terrorists.

I like the government of the United States. You should learn more about it. How about you read the goddam Constitution and learn what the government of the United States is.

Let's start with the principle that the president has no authority outside the Executive Branch of government. What this means is, the president can't give any orders to anyone not working within the Executive Branch of government.
Now, that kind of conflicts with what you think a government should be, doesn't it?

I'll never notice you're gone. Let me know when you're ready to go to the airport. I'll even give you a ride.
