NSA collected US email records in bulk for more than two years under Obama
Secret program launched by Bush continued 'until 2011'
The collection of these records began under the Bush administration's wide-ranging warrantless surveillance program, collectively known by the NSA codename Stellar Wind.

From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20130221/M...
Those in Detroit's Bloomfield Hills who make on average median income of $900,000 won't be laughing for long when their neighborhoods face the same fate as the Detroit inner city core. All their electronic security systems, watch dogs, private security SWAT teams, and barbed wire topped walls won't save them .

Not that I criticize Obama for protecting our embassies and ambassadors in dangerous countries.

Oh, wait a minute. Nevermind. Too late for one embassy and one ambassador.

But aren't we glad Jay Leno got an exclusive interview to ask our president the really tough questions in these dangerous times?

I know I am even though my head almost exploded. He even got in a few yucks.

Thought it odd though the audience were trained seals. They did everything but bark on cue.

they don't need no stinking minimum wage, they have vouchers!!!
Pres. of all black Chicago community rails against section 8

Keith Tate, president of Chatham-Avalon Park Community Association. The community is 98% black. He says that the Chicago Housing Authority is ruining the community with section 8 vouchers.
Note: 88% of people receiving family housing from the Chicago Housing Authority are black. Most of the rest are Latino. Whites and Asians make up a fraction of 1% each.

For years sane people, including CofCC members, have been denounced by the press as “racist” for opposing section 8 vouchers. Now the Chicago Housing Authority has publicly admitted that the “racists” are correct in saying they increase crime. Apparently “white racists” aren’t the only ones who think section 8 vouchers are bad. Many black oppose them as well.

The Chicago Housing Authority now admits that section 8 voucher using bring dramatic increases in crime to a neighborhood. For years they have denied their was any increase in crime in the past. CHA spokeswoman Kellie O’Connell-Miller comically said that CHA had no way of knowing that section 8 residents caused an increase in crime, until an officially study was done.

The CHA is still claiming that tearing down its notorious housing projects caused an overall decrease in crime. However they do not factor in that the population of the city decreased by 7% during the time period they are looking at. There is also a nationwide trend in the majority black urban areas where the sheer volume of crime makes it unlikely that the lesser crimes are investigated. Therefore, people have just stopped bothering to report them any more.

The New York Times has apparently joined the hunt. They aren't too happy either the NSA is "casting a far wider net" than we were led to believe.

"Jameel Jaffer, a senior lawyer at the A.C.L.U., said Wednesday that such 'dragnet surveillance will be poisonous to the freedoms of inquiry and association' because people who know that their communications will be searched will change their behavior.

'They’ll hesitate before visiting controversial Web sites, discussing controversial topics or investigating politically sensitive questions,' Mr. Jaffer said.'Individually, these hesitations might appear to be inconsequential, but the accumulation of them over time will change citizens’ relationship to one another and to the government.'”

Community colleges are worthless and none of the courses tat they offer should ever be called "engineering" or "medicine", which is gross consumer fraud.
Higher minimum wage just causes higher unemployment, particularly among minorities.
Wrong again moron! Community colleges provide technical skills needed in today's workplace. Increasingly local industries are partnering with local community colleges providing students hands on training. Here's one example;
Jackie Bray is a single mom from North Carolina who was laid off from her job as a mechanic. Then Siemens opened a gas turbine factory in Charlotte, and formed a partnership with Central Piedmont Community College. The company helped the college design courses in laser and robotics training. It paid Jackie’s tuition, then hired her to help operate their plant.
No liar, there's absolutely no evidence that raising the minimum wage has ever raised unemployment.
You're an idiot Galt!

The only expose you should be worrying about is being lied to about a video that had nothing to do with the 9/11 anniversary attack and someone who exercised their First Amendment rights was arrested immediately and is still in custody while the perpetrators of that attack roamed free for 10 months.

And all those "investigations" still underway which restricted our president from being truthful are apparently still underway because he hasn't uttered a single word of truth yet.

How gullible are you anyway?
