Why isn't the NY Times investigating Senator Bob Menendez's (D - NJ) involvement with underage prostitutes with his Miami Dr friend? The FBI is on top of it, and the NY Times ignores it.

Maam, you bring all of this on yourself. If you could just refrain from using words such as "idiots, stupid, FU and other vulgarities when expressing your displeasure with someone who disagrees with you, it might help. You might try asking those who don't think like you why they think like they do. You might get an intelligent response that may entice you to think differently about something or at least gain an understanding why someone would not think like you. It's perfectly ok to have an opinion on politics. It's simply disrespectful to abuse others who don't share your opinion. Back and forth discussions between people of opposing opinions can be a knowledgeable experience. Back and forth bantering yields nothing, especially when it involves personal attacks. Nobody is ever going to change their opinion on something simply because they have been called an "idiot." You have tried that numerous times, but is has yet to work. Maybe by trying to understand how someone developed that opinion you could try to eliminate the controversy you always seem to be in the middle of. In my opinion at least, that is the only way you are ever going to go back and enjoy this forum like you used to.
I noticed you never scold the conservative posters for much worse examples of the same behavior...

Hmmmm...maybe because they've already reported on it several days ago. I posted the Link! In fact, I've posted 2 of them about it!
You know, if you People would , at least, read the Headline to the Links I put up and then, look at the Source that's always in the Link that you click on, you wouldn't make idiotic posts like this. You are ignorant by choice and for that, you deserve to be called "stupid"!

When did you decide Pete must challenge every other poster in the entire topix population in order to challenge a specific person? Rather presumptious on your part isn't it? I think it is, especially considering this was a specific person Pete had been extensively engaged with.
Your question reveals an obvious bias, to insinuate Pete must divide posting time between conservatives and liberals..how stupid! What about moderates, independents and so forth? If you had followed the postings as I did you would have understood what the exchanges were all about.
It isn't you prerogative to establish who another poster challenges. It would've been obvious to an honest idiot what the exchanges were about. I realize you routinely stumble over the obvious, but it's difficult for smart people to ignore disturbing personalities who not only adopt numerous psuedonyms, but begin to create life circumstances and story lines around them.

<quoted text> The Bush Administration warrantless wiretap program was brought to light by (if memory serves) The New York Times. Gonzales argued that it was legal under the "Patriot Act" just as the Obama administration now makes the case that the killing of American Citizens overseas without oversight is legal, but under pressure, Bush and Co. returned to using the FISA court in 2007...partly under pressure from Congress and probably because they knew it was going to be found unconstitutional in the courts. In 2008 Congress revisited the FISA Court issue, streamlining the program and allowing faster decisions on warrantless wiretaps. The Obama administration claims they are following the procedure Congress laid out of presenting requests to the FISA Court in all cases requiring warrantless wiretaps. I hope so, since this is the law.
While I see your point...not fighting "fair" as you put it, makes us as bad as those we attempt to defeat. This is the same argument I made regarding torture. If we torture prisoners, we have no moral authority to condemn other countries that do likewise. I have never known of an instance where the end justified the means, but should we choose to go down that road...there is no stop on the spiral downward.
I personally, have no problem with the use of drones to target al Quieda members who are plotting to kill Americans...but when the target is an American citizen, I think the standard must respect the rights granted to that citizen under the Constitution, or there is no guarantee that your and my rights will not be the next to be shredded.
Finally, and respectfully, while I agree that Americans probably have no business traveling to the hotbeds of Islamic unrest around the globe, the "government" has no right to tell me where I can or can't go in the world, I do not need their "permission" to travel anywhere I wish, without becoming a target of my own government. Basicially, either there is a constitution granting rights to American citizens, and a rule of law...or there isn't.
Again, I respect your opinion and your right to have one...but we still disagree.
I stand corrected, OT. after you refreshed my memory, I believe that you are absolutely correct about the FISA Court and Warrantless Wiretap Issue.
You also make some very good points about going down the Road that might someday be used against innocent Americans. I would hope that, if and when Al Qaeda is no longer a threat to any of us Americans, Congress would see to it that no future President would abuse what's being done now, in this seemingly never-ending War that we're involved in. But, we have no guarantee of that! And frankly, with some of the unbelievable things Congress has done in recent times...or failed to do...I don't trust them to care enough about this Country or it's Patriotic Citizens to reverse anything that might be put in place under Special Conditions, such as we are living in now.
So, I'm right back riding the fence again! It's terrible when you don't even trust the People you send to Washington to represent you and to guard your Rights enough to depend on them to do the correct thing, in a time of War. It gives one a very insecure feeling, just because of the Country One lives in. how much things have changed in such a comparatively short amount of time! I'm thinking of WWII and how much the People had to take on Faith from this Nation's Leaders' word, alone! And now, we are actually afraid of what our Leaders may do, or not do, as the case may be. As a Nation, we are bound to suffer because of that loss of Faith, even though it's justified!

Linda, I watched the Brennan hearing last night, and I agree for the most part, he seemed open and honest. It looked like he will be confirmed easily, and I liked him better after hearing his testimony, than I did before...BUT, I still have a BIG problem with the lack of oversight to the targeted killing of Americans. In my mind, if warrantless wiretaps require a ruling fron a FISA court, the targeted killing of an American citizen should at least meet THAT minimum standard, although I would favor a higher one.
Thw "white paper" on this issue basicially says that if the President does it it is legal...and that seems Nixonian in it's overreach to me. I like Obama, but he isn't God, and truthfully, I resent anyone in government who begins to act as if they are.
I didn't like torture, unlimited detention without due process, rendition, Gitmo, and the weak kneed folks who thought our courts, which we brag are models of justice to the rest of the world, were unable to effectively try terrorists. Not because these were Bush II policies but because to me, they were decidedly unamerican policies, and I refuse to be a hypocrite for Obama. Feel free to disagree,(anyone who wishes to) since this is just my opinion...in fact, I look forward to the opinions of others.
If you are a real Lib thinker, you will agree that Obama has and i trying to take this country a far left as Nixon took it to the right years ago.

<quoted text> Thank you "Pete". I learned something from the site you provided as well. I was not aware of how much inerest is paid by the govt. to holders of U.S. Savings bonds, and it was not included in the CBO estimate of interest payments from our government, but was provided on the Treasury site you posted. That brings me to a question...I wonder why there has not been a major push to get Americans to buy savings bonds instead of borrowing from foreign countries ? War bonds helped to provide cash for WWII and, this could be a way for Americans to do the patriotic thing and keep those interest payments and control here in this country. Your thoughts ?
Will keep my money under my pillow!

I keep forgetting that a lot of folks don't want to revisit the Bush II years...especially those who voted for him twice, but American history didn't begin in 2008. The issue we were discussing has not been settled for years, in fact a panel similar to the FISA court is being contemplated by congress now. If you missed the connection, perhaps you should go back and read SLOWLY. Or maybe Willard can explain it to you...in his usual plain english... I mean. That ought to do it !
