  1. You need to read Andrew Sullivan, if you haven’t already. We tried to tell you. Also, to cover the whole story, Balloon J. There is a price to be paid for winding the toys this tight.

  2. Oh please, TP. Resurrecting the “domestic surveillance” lie? This is nothing more than a blatant attempt to smear our soldiers and cast the folks going to the tea parties as “right-wing extremists”. It’s short, vague and offers NO EVIDENCE to back up their “assessments”.

    You can take the “I told you so’s” and shove them sideways.

  3. T.P.

    There is an ENORMOUS difference—legal, constitutional and moral—between surveillance of terrorists overseas/people talking to overseas terrorists and wiretapping political opponents.

    The courts ruled the latter unconstitutional long ago when Kennedy was wiretapping Martin Luther King, but have NEVER ruled wiretapping our enemies unconstitutional, Indeed, they have made it clear over the years that the president has the constitutional authority to do so even without a warrant, even when one party in the conversation in in the US.

    The FISA court has just RE-affirmed the constitutionality of Bush’s wiretapping program , the Democrat Congress re-affirmed it with virtually meaningless legislation “authorizing” what is a constitutional power and Barack Obama voted for it.

    That you and Andrew Sullivan cant grasp the enormous difference that everyone else plainly understands only emphasizes your irrationality.

    YOU need to read more reality and less liberal ranting.

  4. “Anderson Cooper, a man who boasts a commitment to going behind the headlines…”

    I hear he likes going behind a lot of things, if you know what I mean. ;-)

    Just sayin’.

  5. AE: the profanity-laced post at BJ was more honest in its invective:

    What ignorant rantings. Your title is supremely ironic since liberals are the one who cant get the point despite the Supreme Court, Congress, and even Barack Obama agreeing with the Bush administration. (Yes, libtards, your dear leader voted for warantless wiretapping and now uses it)

    The Supreme court has just affirmed that decision, the Democrat Congress re-affirmed it with legislation, which Obama voted for.
    it is only the ignorant, mouth-breathing, spittle-spewing f*ckwad libtard sociopaths that could “Never get it” no matter how many times it has been explained to them, precisely because you ARE mouth-breathing, spittle-spewing, f*ckwad ignorant libtard sociopaths.
    You have lost this argument at EVERY single level!

    But still missed the point because Bush wasn’t just wiretapping people overseas. You never really read those court cases, did you?

  6. http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/

    Glenn covers this. Once again, there’s no need for hypotheticals or ‘little thought experiments.’ The Bush administration spent time monitoring left wing groups, too.

    Name one. And provide evidence. I double-dog-dare you.

  8. Name one. And provide evidence. I double-dog-dare you.

    I provided a link. It wasn’t but a couple of months ago that they were arresting college students and journalists at the RNC convention for absolutely nothing.

    Evidence doesn’t work on you people anyway.

    Comment by Levi — April 15, 2009 @ 1:55 pm - April 15, 2009

  9. Um, Levi, Glenn Greenwald is hardly a reliable source. More a hysterical one.

  10. #8 – “It wasn’t but a couple of months ago that they were arresting college students and journalists at the RNC convention for absolutely nothing.”

    Perhaps it was because they were affiliated with ANSWER, Code Pink and were able to get protestors on the floor of the RNC in direct violation of established procedures?

    Try again, fool.

    That’s not what I was talking about, but it doesn’t matter anyway. This link:

    …. should do a lot better job of assuaging your paranoia.

  12. Levi, you admit you never read links or information that doesn’t support your worldview, so we’re supposed to take any link you give as reliable?

    Best of all, that DHS link you posted is bull:

    DHS/I&A assesses that cyber attacks are attractive options to leftwing extremists who view attacks on economic targets as aligning with their nonviolent, “no-harm” doctrine and tactic of “direct action.”

    Tell that to the people the weathermen blew up, or to those who lost property and livelyhood to ELF and ALF.

    Of course the DHS info linked lists easily a half a dozen groups on the left, but can’t find any boogymen on the right, except for veterans.

    Must have been written by Jack Murtha

  13. Not to mention the fact that DHS Secretary Napolitano has stood by her indictment of so-called “right-wing extremists” per the story below -

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/apr/16/napolitano-stands-rightwing-extremism/

    And that US veterans are hoppin’ mad at the SnObama Administration for putting this forth:

    Match, set, game for Levi. You lose. Thank you for playing.

  14. Getting back on topic regarding Anderson Cooper, son of jean queen Gloria Vanderbilt (for Murjani) – here is his soundbite on “teabagging,” if you will:

    http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-balan/2009/04/15/cnns-anderson-cooper-its-hard-talk-when-youre-tea-bagging

    Apparently, Ms. Cooper can’t stop talking about “conservative teabagging.” I guess he likes the taste of conservative teabags as compared to liberal ones.

    Similarly, it’s kind of funny that it’s conservatives who are “teabagging” the Dhimmicrats – and yet they’re the ones enjoying it.

    Heh. ;-)

  15. I saw this while doing cardio at the gym as well. Did see you there though :-)

    I thought the graphic was funny, it included the Republican Elephant with a title “Recession Radicals” or something like that. I just rolled my eyes and listened to my ipod.

  16. It seems to me that this is saying that pro-gun democrats are “right-wing extremists”. Guess that applies to the Blue Ball democrats.

    Comment by ThatGayConservative — April 15, 2009 @ 5:37 pm - April 15, 2009

  17. But still missed the point because Bush wasn’t just wiretapping people overseas.

    Yes, heaven forbid, he was actually wiretapping people who were working with and communicating with terrorists whether they were inside the United States or not.

    According to torrentfag, the minute the 9/11 terrorists set foot on US soil, they were absolutely protected from any sort of wiretapping and that to do so was unconstitutional.

    The entertaining thing is that torrentfag and his liberal ilk blame Bush for not intercepting and stopping the 9/11 plot when they insist that any attempt to listen in on or otherwise detain or inconvenience the terrorists who carried it out was an unconstitutional invasion of privacy.

  18. And again, Levi runs away with his tail between his legs.
