I can think of MANY reasons why Congressman Bob Etheridge (NC-2) shouldn’t be in office, but THIS video of his ASSAULT of some students who want to ask him some questions is one of the biggest displays of arrogance that I’ve ever seen. Bob Etheridge needs to GO BACK HOME!
With all the focus on potential domestic terrorists, with all the surveillance, phone-taps, browser snooping, and with all the tax dollars spent on creating and maintaining a Department of Homeland Security and Security Czar, one simply must ask: how can this happen? Apparently the CIA failed to get the memo about Homeland Security coordinating between all existing agencies to prevent acts of terrorism or is it that I just didn’t understand part of legislation (or propaganda briefs) used to sell DHS and the lies about being the main player in coordinating information and action between the alphabet soup of agencies. The CIA says they had fore knowledge of a dedicated Muslim seeking to contact al Qaeda. Not just an ordinary Muslim but a Major in the U.S. Army. So, just because some idiot wanna-be spook refuses to report the fact that a U.S. Army Major is seeking to communicate with an enemy, a psycho-muslim is allowed to kill and wound numerous Americans, not just on American soil but on an Army post on top of that.
These moron islamo-terrorist need to be stopped at first knowledge rather than waiting for additional information or leads. No domestic terrorist = no terrorist act. It’s not rocket science. If you eliminate the extremists like Hasan there is no sleeper that can help organize terrorism.
All this kinda makes one wonder just how much fore-knowledge existed prior to 9-11???
The apologists are worried that there may be a backlash against Muslim soldiers; just wait for the persecution of gun owners by the leftists liberals in Washington and elsewhere.
If you disapprove of the current administration’s actions, policies, or direction and chose to post that information to the internet, you may well be on the list of people doing so.
Long reported by various fringe groups, there are in fact lists that have been and are being compiled by various federal agencies. Some of us may remember the controversy when Nixon used federal resources to compile a political enemy list, J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI were/are fond of lists, the Clintons accessed IRS records to compile their list, we have no-fly lists, potential domestic terrorist lists, and (no pun intended) the list goes on.
Now, as reported by the Washington Times, we have an administration appearing somewhat paranoid in their twisting of federal law to say they are required to compile and maintain a list of those objecting to administration policies.
I don’t have a problem with the administration surfing the internet to get a feel for public opinion, I don’t have a problem with the administration putting together packages of internet content for use in accessing the amount of opposition or support for policies, I don’t even have a problem with the administration saving some of the information for later reference in determining course for future policies. I do, however, have a serious problem with the compilation of lists that can be used to single out individuals or groups.
However innocent the gathering of this information may seem initially, there will always be those in the government who will gain access to and use such lists for nefarious purposes.
Governments like those of Chavez in Venezuela, Castro in Cuba, Ahmadinejad in Iran, etc. generally compile lists of their detractors, in the United States this is unforgivable.
Add this to the attempts to force radical over-reaching growth in government and we appear to have a government that is out of control and rapidly attempting to establish a totalitarian regime.
Oops… I guess I just earned another entry on the list!
The Southern Poverty Law Center is up to its old tricks, demonizing conservatives and playing the race card for profit.
Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., criticizes mainstream media for not reporting loads of pork in proposed legislation.
At least 200 passengers have been convicted of felonies under the Patriot Act, often for behavior involving raised voices and profanity.

The US can expect a terrorist attack using nuclear or more likely biological weapons before 2013, reports a bipartisan commission in a study being briefed Tuesday to Vice President-elect Joe Biden. “Our margin of safety is shrinking, not growing,” states the report obtained by The Associated Press that’s scheduled to be publicly released Wednesday.
Joe Biden warned that America’s enemies would test Barack Obama with an international crisis within six months if he’s elected president. So what does Mr. Biden know that WE the People don’t know?
As FDR said, “Nothing in politics happens by accident.”
