Yes, it's a knee-jerk reaction. However, our government agencies have done this to themselves. Most of the outrage is probably coming from people who saw "FBI" and "website" in the same sentence and just assumed they did something bad. I can't say I really blame them all that much.

YOU HYPOCRITES! The hypocrisy in half of these posts is incredible. You all freak out when you hear the government is spying on you or some other techy right is being violated, but as soon you hear these people are...GASP...Christians, then it's "I don't give a crap that they purchased the right to use the space, screw their first amendment rights and the horse they rode in on!!!!!!!!!!" Stop cherry-picking when it comes to certain groups' right to assemble and speak. It makes you all look like a bunch of ignorant d-bags.

Comment: This is now a liberal vs. conservative thing? (Score 1) 283

I thought this was something that spanned across both side of the aisle, I guess I was wrong. However, now that I think about it, it seems like everything, down to what color Skittle is the best, is being made into a liberal vs. conservative these days.

Whoa whoa whoa, back the truck up here a second. You're assuming that because I don't like the president I MUST be a conservative Republican. Not true, I am a moderate Libertarian, so every argument (and all the name calling) you used that was based on this false assumption is rendered invalid from the get-go. Now, on to the others:

We, the Americans that are in the far majority, LIKE 99% of Obamacare's provisions.

Are you delusional? There are multitudes of surveys and poles that say the exact opposite.

Stopped invading other countries is not well spun subjective opinion. It is a real fact. You called it an objective opinion because again, you don't like that we did it.

I wasn't talking about the war part being subjective, I was talking about the, "We stopped insulting every other country" part being subjective, which it is.

Let me ask you a question. Assume that a president gets elected and institutes a flat tax at 20%, makes abortion illegal, and makes it legal to conceal carry or open carry any gun - from a pistol to an ak-47. You personally would consider that man a great president, correct?

Hard to say, I liked Clinton, hated Bush and hate Obama.

President Obama has successfully delivered multiple large victories to the left.

Funny, I thought he was the President of the UNITED STATES, not the President of the liberals.

Yes, if Congress had been more liberal, he could have got more done - but you personally would have hated him even more. That is WHY you hate him - and also why we love him.

No, I hate him because he's been an incredibly bad president. Just like I hated Bush because he was an incredibly bad president. Don't tell me why I like or dislike something.

People like you are a huge part of what's wrong with the country today. It's this stupid us vs. them mentality and you've played right into it. I'm sorry you're a liberal Obama-loving shill. Hopefully at some point you'll start voting and thinking based on results, not on the party line.

1) We got healthcare

We got a badly implemented form of mandatory health insurance (notice, I said 'health insurance,' NOT healthcare) that further penalizes the poor for not being able to afford it.

2) We killed Osama Bin Laden after Bush failed to do so for 7 years


3)We stopped insulting every other country and going to war on bad information.

This is purely some well-spun subjective opinion which means absolutely nothing in terms of hope and/or change.

SO basically the only hope and change that occurred was that Bin Laden was finally killed; and it wasn't like Obama had much, if anything to do with that directly. If you rate that as an A- I have some choice real estate to sell you.

The truly scary thing about all this is that you, along with so many others, have actually convinced yourself that he's a good president.
