Midwest ranchers have never been enamored with environmental regulators, but they really began to complain after learning federal inspectors were flying over their land to look for problems.

Isn't ENOUGH that these ranchers pay a larger amount of taxes than your normal homeowner? To top it off, they have to deal with drought. I think the EPA is just another spy vs. spy program..like big brother. Sure, pay your taxes, lose your job, lose your home and be homeless...WHERE THE FREAK is the Gov't..to build decent homeless shelters, supply decent food and liveable furnishings...OH YEAH..WHAT and WHERE is the Jobs Bill that has been misplaced?? Pick on the folks that for generations have helped America in supplying beef, pork, chickens, grains, vegetables, fruits and continue to have pride in their country...AND this is the thanks they get, JUST trying to make a livin'..

Nevermind. You not only totally missed my point, you totally abandoned yours.
Do you still advocate intrusive government actions based on having nothing to hide/ nothing to fear?

I'm wondering if that includes Hispanics in Arizona?
Or, do you get to pick and choose where and when it's applicable?

same thing with Latinos and blacks. Should the police just pull them over to make sure they are legal and don't have any drugs? If they have nothing to hide then what is the big deal?
racial profiling?
it's been going on for decades.
and yeah, if you have nothing to hide then what's the big deal?

You poor clueless bastid.
Congress passed the Patriot Act, which granted the President broad powers to fight a war against terrorism. The George W. Bush administration used these powers to bypass the FISA court and directed the NSA to spy directly on al Qaeda in a new NSA electronic surveillance program. Reports at the time indicate that an "apparently accidental" "glitch" resulted in the interception of communications that were purely domestic in nature.This action was challenged by a number of groups, including Congress, as unconstitutional.
Try to keep up with the rest of us.

no disrespect to farmowners, but you know they get huge government subsidies right?
(aka; taxpayer money)
it's in the farm bill.

and I agree about the drought issue, it leaves one to wonder why we're so hot to have the Keystone project moving dirty oil to be sold off-shore, when we could be laying down the same sort of pipeline for water instead.

<quoted text>Who is the Gov't? Koch/ALEC/NRA/The Council for National Policy/The Fellowship Foundation/G4S/The Family Research Council/ A gay prostitute, a phony media organization that managed to sneak its “reporter” into White House press briefings, and the lies that were fed to the media and the American people in the run-up to war with Iraq – what possible connection could these items have to one another?
The answer: a man called “Jeff Gannon.”
Amid the media frenzy over Gannon’s journalistic bona fides, or lack of them – and the lurid speculation going on in the left lane of the blogosphere about how a purported male hooker got admitted to White House press briefings before his “Talon News Agency”(a front group created by “GOPUSA“) was even created – one has to ask: who cares?
Answer: Patrick J. Fitzgerald, for one, the chief prosecutor in an investigation that could rope in several high-ranking administration officials and even lead to the White House itself. And those of us who have been awaiting the come-uppance of this White House, for two, and are ready to get out the popcorn and the chips-and-dip and settle down for a nice long juicy scandal.

This is why the GOP house wont pass amnesty.

Obama blocks bills and border agents get killed.

The NRA needs to come out against amnesty. This is an importation of left wing constituents that will vote for a liberal SCOTUS.
