"We can only go so far with what we read in the news," Link said of Rehberg's June 6 letter

Yes, that LameStream, MainStream Media can never be trusted. Instead, I get my facts from reputable "news" outlets like Infowars.

Its not the drones they have a problem with, its that the EPA would enforce the clean water act.
 
2012-06-20 08:26:00 PM  
Although the EPA does not use surveillance drones, the agency does use manned airplanes to monitor potential pollution sources in the Midwest, a practice the agency said began 10 years ago under President George W. Bush


Is it okay to use manned planes?

If it is not okay to use manned planes did anyone complain between 3 1/2 to 10 years ago.


and before anyone asks yes he has been congress since 2001

Dennis R. "Denny" Rehberg (born October 5, 1955) is the U.S. Representative for Montana's At-large congressional district, serving since 2001. from wiki

BDS NEVER approached the insane levels of ODS.

And spare me the jpegs of some hippy or 17 year-old "anarchist" holding a poster with Bush in a Nazi uniform; BDS that derpy was NEVER embraced by Democratic members of Congress, any significant number of Democrats in the general population, or major media personalities.

This is a textbook case of how the right-wing echo chamber works. The next step (if they haven't done so already) is for Fox to start constantly complaining about how the "mainstream" media won't report on this earth-shattering bombshell of a story.

In defense of the Montana GOP, if everyone along the Missouri suffered greatly the effects of various, easily preventable, water born illnesses it really would be mostly republicans, and therefore hilarious.

Yes. Different name, same disease. "Independent citizens militias", Black Helicopter Syndrome, Vince Foster, Oklahoma City Bombers. All byproducts of the same mental disease which creates these people

FTFA: "The Obama Administration rarely reveals its secretive plans to anyone but its closest allies. Since Denny doesn't vote with the President 95 percent of the time, he must often rely on news reports and constituent input," wrote Jed Link, Rehberg's spokesman. "In this case, Denny heard from concerned Montanans, saw reports in the media and took the responsible first step - asking the EPA about it."

RINO!! Real Republicans NEVER vote the same as 0fartbum!!

Same crap, new package.

The whole point of conservatism is "(1)stick with what has worked in the past, and also (2) what hasn't worked in the past, or basically (3) whatever it is, if it was in the past, stick with it."


For example, people in the past got cancer, so the GOP has come out as the pro-cancer party [1] [2].

Like Cancer? Vote Republican!

Believe it or not Clinton had it a little worse. There are two mainstream movies that accuse him, allegorically, of raping children. For instance. One of many.

Tickle Mittens: Believe it or not Clinton had it a little worse


In some ways, yes. The way he's been treated by Congressional Republicans when it comes to votes, and the opinions the general Republican base has for the man, Obama has it worse. Republicans are much worse than they were 12+ years ago, and that's saying something.

From what I remember, he was believed to have murdered people, that his wife was incapable of being First Lady because she took care of horses, that he was on a crusade to wipe out Christians as he conspired with the New World Order (which led to Timothy McVeigh blowing up a government building as well as a daycare center).

Until someone commits terrorism from Obama being a secret Muslim, it's not as bad as Clinton.

They are certainly more blunt and obvious.
 
2012-06-20 10:08:53 PM  
To be fair, as loony right-wing rumors go, this one's pretty believable. FEMA camps, anyone? This one is at least plausible, although I'm pretty sure the EPA will have to wait in line behind the DEA, the ATF, the NSA and probably several other government agencies I've never even heard of if they want drones.

party of personal responsibility and blaming the black guy.

The conservative fringe was just as nutty in the 90s as it is now (hell, the John Birch Society, i.e. proto-tea partiers, loudly exclaimed that Eisenhower was a communist). They were apeshiat about the bizarre notion that Hillary had Vince Foster murdered and a congressman even shot up a watermelon in his backyard during a "reenactment." The main difference between then and now is that Fox News exists to launder all the lunacy into the mainstream rather than leaving it to fester in the right-wing fever swamp. The Citizens United decision will only further drag the discourse into blithering inanity.

With Clinton they turned into the blowjob patrol.

Kreep will be a judge while the AZ Secretary of State(and Romney campaign state co-chair) is riffing on birferism.

I anticipate a spike in the number of Fark Independents.

I would say it's okay to use whatever surveillance equipment they like, if they have a search warrant. Are they bothering with that sort of thing anymore, or are my charmingly antiquated scruples a relic of a bygone age?

"Even an American terrorist, an American al-Qaida, was killed by a drone. So now you're in the Midwest, and you know you're not a terrorist, but nonetheless, you gotta get a little squeamish when you see a drone going overhead," Fox host Megyn Kelly told viewers.

Oh go fark yourself. Did you care when Americans expressed alarm at the Patriot Act even though we had nothing to hide? No, you didn't. You championed it.

And the Patriot Act is REAL.
