In March 2009,<quoted text>
The United States is in much better shape now then it was after Bush attempted to destroy it from 2001-08. All records prove that. Your argument is weak and based on lies that your republican friends fed you. You will believe anything the right-wing extremists tell you to believe because you don't know how to deal with the fact that your party is falling apart and the whole world is laughing at republican failures. Lol. You are a disgrace and an embarrassment to true Patriotic Americans like me. You Are the American Taliban and you should be destroyed before you do any more damage to this country. I can't decide weather It's sad or amusing the way you refuse to educate yourself. You are pathetic and worthless. Continue posting stupid factless links to opinion sites, keep talking about your imaginary god and keep thinking that you know what you're talking about, keep being an elderly, paranoid, racist, alcoholic shut-in Because in real life, in the real world you are now and have always been simply worthless. Don't be afraid to look in the miror and look at what you have become. Lol. You're a Failure @ Life.
Obama ---defended Bush’s unconstitutional National Security Agency
spying program in court,
that actions authorized by the President,
including illegally spying on American citizens,
should be free from any judicial scrutiny whatsoever.
In April 2009, the Department of Homeland Security called for surveillance of military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, characterizing them as extremists and potential domestic terrorist threats because they may be "disgruntled, disillusioned or suffering from the psychological effects of war."
Coupled with the DHS’ report on "Rightwing Extremism," which broadly defines extremists as "mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely," these tactics bode ill for anyone seen as opposing the government.
