I know what the cause of the problem is, it is people like you. Some crazy bastard shoots people and it's always somebody else's fault, the guns fault, the government's fault, the NRA's fault. The poor shooter had a bad teacher, or a bad parent, he was poor or picked on. You use the same logic to defend people like Pelosi and Reid, who as you might know, gave us the brilliant success of. obamacare. You and your progressive liberals have run the country for nearly 5 years and this is where we are. Thanks dickhead.
but see, little rusty, that is exactly...EXACTLY what you are doing! you are blaming their politics for it.

understand why your little pea-shooter of a brain cannot even realize what you are doing. mostly because you just parrot crap that is far, far beyond your level of comprehension, like i just pointed out.

so sad you cannot think for yourself and the people you parrot make you look like such a stupid asshole...

No, Trombone, it's the act, and it was Bush's act, and Bush used his act the same way Obama is using it. Bush just didn't have someone rat him out.

Yes.

So what?

On what planet are you on where the US doesn't spy on firends, and friends spy on the US?

The question isn't if it happens, it's what people do with what they have.

Compare to the Israelis, for example, who sold our deepest secrets to the Soviets during the Cold War and our weapon systems to
China.

Obama owes them apology.

Period.

Somebody rated out Obama? WTF! The NSA knows who it was. The IRS will go after them. NOBODY, not even the press, messes with the Chosen One. I mean he promised the average working person would see a $2500 cut to their health insurance bill, who'd question that? Besides,'Shotgun Joe' Biden has the whole gun thing taken care of.

What is the most scary is that the paranoia of this latest shooter seems to be the same paranoia of some of the crazies on this thread who believe in black helicopters, boogey men under their beds and how everyone is "out to get them".

funny, i heard "up to $2,5000"

i guess you are one of the gullible ones that gets sucked into the bait and switch sales schemes and then complains that you were too stupid to get yourself out...

funny how you keep posting about how stupid you are...do you think this is a wise idea, little rusty bucket?

You claimed it was Bush's. Now you agree it is Obama's and say so what?

Okay. I understand. When it was Bush's it was bad. Now that it is Obama's it is good.

You made your point and it is on the top of your little head.

<quoted text> We is headed for a police state. If you are that stupid then don't ever wonder why. The abuses of people wearing uniforms and getting away with is is growing longer and longer. they even get reinstated after a long investigation. The uniform people have no tolerance. And as long as you comply at a reasonable speed, they don't go off on you. Most people are wary of the uniforms of power now.
Power has never been abused before?
The TSA agents screen luggage. they are unarmed.
How do you justify the shooting?

Gov't has to have a cohesive element, else wise you would be able to claim the benefits of a society with out needing to pay for the up-keep. The founding fathers used force to establish their gov't. Read about George Washington and the 'whiskey rebellion' or how ruthlessly Herbert Hoover dealt with the 'bonus marchers'

You are saying I justify the shooting. I know security is a must. It is the level of it that I question. Its always expanding now that we let the cat out of the bag. I am telling you we are in a soft tyranny en route to a totalitarian one. And it is possible that we will like it. People abused by people wearing uniforms is fairly regular now. Most of the time they get away with it. Usually a civil suit come up and a financial payoff occurs paid by the taxpayer of course. This is not the Whiskey Rebellion. This is dehumanizing citizens. This is not the "bonus marchers". And they had a legitimate gripe. Perhaps they should have set camp at the Federal Reserve which was signed into law by a progressive president and the same Federal Reserve caused the Depression in the first place. I prefer freedom. but as it stands now, we will be more of a rigid state of enforced laws in the future and i don't wan to be one of groups that gets the blame like most other despot nations in the past have done.

Having our identify, our passports, our tickets checked by the TSA to keep us safe does not equate to soft anything or totalitarian mumbo jumbo.

OK You didn't endorse the pulling of the trigger but you seem to be claiming that logic was ok it was what he did with it that was ...excessive?
However TSA are the least threatening uniformed officers that we have.
Most of the loss of privacy comes from advances in technology not from malevolent forces.

Privatize them. And make sure they get fired and/or arrested for infractions against any American citizen. Same for any uniformed or non uniform men and wmen who push the laws on the citizens.
