All the taxes placed on a land line to pay for Obama Phone and E911
You sir are as complete brainwashed moron. - smh. The so called "Obama phone" is a program started by reagan
How long is it going to take before the American people get fed up with this. The NSA is obviously an out of control agency and has been for years. The people in charge need to start spending LONG prison sentences for their crimes against humanity. And before people start screaming "Think about the terrorists" remember that those in charge (both the NSA, FBI and others) have deliberately chosen to ignore gathered intell about actual terrorist threats (such as 911 and the Boston Marathon bombers). This should prove to everyone that the government considers their own citizens as more of a threat than foreign terrorists.
Is this shown on the news? Have CNN spent a whole 2 days on it like they have a current blizzard of new york? or previously Inflategate? Nope So why whould the unwashed masses be upset if the fucking media is failing to report on it. It's not a blizzard, sports cheating or a plane crash so they are oblivious. We that read slashdot hear about stuff like this all the time. DEA cameras, NSA GCHQ etc. The greater "American people" do not. So they cannot be outraged over something that the media is not reporting.
Your scout leader analogy is a poor analogy. David Duke was a well know racist. In other words if you didn't know anything else about David Duke, the one thing you knew about him was that he was a racist. Even David Duke came out and said, and I quote: " Scalise was his buddy (who he met “several times”)" So this guy Scalise in public doesn't want to be associated with David Duke once the heat is turned up, yet, in private they are "buddies"
So we have here this guy that 1) addressed David Duke's convention of racists, 2) Claim's he's David Duke without the baggage, And 3) is buddies with David Duke.
I don't expect you to take me seriously as you seem bent on being an apologist for this clown.
So being David Duke without the KKK affiliation is some how better? smh
You can try to explain away the baggage part all you like but it is clear what he means.
no one is talking about Byrd or Obama. I know you types like to bring up the Byrd strawman Byrd is not even alive today let alone being a party leader/whip in the house or senate. It was Scalise that bragged that he was "David Duke without the baggage."
