BullBearMS: jso2897: I really didn't think you had anything constructive to offer.Why don't you try not defending the actions of a lying ass politician?
Mrtraveler01: Sitting on your ass whining about it on Fark isn't going to do anything.
jso2897: BullBearMS: jso2897: I really didn't think you had anything constructive to offer.Why don't you try not defending the actions of a lying ass politician?So what positive, constructive course of action do you propose? (for the umpteenth time)P.S. I know I'm not going to get a straight answer.

(for the umpteenth time)P.S. I know I'm not going to get a straight answer.My constructive course of action is to tell you two idiots to go back to the politics tab if you're just going to whine about people criticizing your favorite politician.There's a whole retarded section of Fark just for that purpose.For some of us, ragging on Bush for his civil liberties record wasn't just one big long concern troll.Something tells me you weren't the least bit concerned that people criticized Bush for his bullshiat, though.
BullBearMS: Ignoring the whiny farkers, Obama has consistently tried to expand the surveillance state at every turn.He has consistently tried to shut down every court case against the lawless Bush excesses:The Obama administration is urging the Supreme Court to halt a legal challenge weighing the constitutionality of a once-secret warrantless surveillance program targeting Americans' communicationsThen he has even created his own secret interpretation of the Patriot Act that allows him to act in ways that some in the Senate have been warning of for some time.For more than two years, a handful of Democrats on the Senate intelligence committee have warned that the government is secretly interpreting its surveillance powers under the Patriot Act in a way that would be alarming if the public - or even others in Congress - knew about it.One of the members of the NSA has resigned in protest and has turned whistle blower.In his first television interview since he resigned from the National Security Agency over its domestic surveillance program, William Binney discusses the NSA's massive power to spy on Americans and why the FBI raided his home after he became a whistleblower. Binney was a key source for investigative journalist James Bamford's recent exposé in Wired Magazine about how the NSA is quietly building the largest spy center in the country in Bluffdale, Utah. The Utah spy center will contain near-bottomless databases to store all forms of communication collected by the agency, including private emails, cellphone calls, Google searches and other personal data.Binney served in the NSA for over 30 years, including a time as technical director of the NSA's World Geopolitical and Military Analysis Reporting Group. Since retiring from the NSA in 2001, he has warned that the NSA's data-mining program has become so vast that it could "create an Orwellian state." It's lovely indeed to see the security state start eating itself.If the head of the CIA's private life ...

BullBearMS: If the head of the CIA's private life isn't safe, yours certainly isn't either.
jso2897: St_Francis_P: jso2897: Mean Daddy: No crime yet. The president and his accomplices in the media tell a story 180 degrees contrary to the general. The media laps it up, a film maker goes to jail and not a peep out of the liberal first amendment lover Larry Flynt. Does that about cover it?You forgot Reverend Wright and the Lizard people. And the squirrels - don't forget the squirrels.What about ACORN? I'm sure they're right in the thick of this.Look, f**ker - it's 7:25 AM in California, and I have had exactly one half of one cup of coffee - a little slack here, if you don't mind?
XveryYpettyZ: incendi: XveryYpettyZ: Can you cite a single case in the last 20 years of a retired officer on a pension being brought up on charges under the the UCMJ?Just because they don't, doesn't mean they can't. /It'd be a silly waste of resources to try and prosecute retirees for bullshiat all the time.The fact that they don't ever prosecute retirees, and won't in this case, is a pretty firm indicator that the UCMJ is completely irrelevant to the Patraeus issue.
In this case, Schiff said, the probe may have caused more harm than it uncovered. "It's very possible that the most significant damage done to national security was the loss of General Petraeus himself," Schiff said.
liam76: BullBearMS: If the head of the CIA's private life isn't safe, yours certainly isn't either.Way to ruin what could have otherwise been a good point.People with enormous control over classified info that are irresponsible enough to put them in a black-mailable position are too irresponsible for that position.
