Well Mr. President, what is the real deal? First we are told that the government has been snooping in our phone and internet records and your answer was;" No one is reading your phone messages". Then old boy comes out and says we been doing this for quite some time and your new answer is; " You have to have a reasonable balance between privacy and national security". I do not neccesarily disagree with that; just the routine flip flop rhetoric you continue to perpetuate. If that was the case to begin with and it has been going on since Bush, then that was the answer. For some reason though your camp is so committed to plausible deniability it would rather chance a media compromise and whitewash rather than the truth. At this point in your presidencyI have no idea whatsoever what you are trying to achieve. You continue to falsly tout failed programs as successess, blame your failures on others, and lately ride from one fiasco to the next. Just once I would like for you to be honest, candid, and objective. You have just over three years left. How about quite worrying about how everyone feels about you and focus more on the country and what the country needs; not your " legacy".

The real deal is-the program was started under the Bush Administration....and From what I understand Obama said he would not use the program as it was written. He changed the law to make it necessary to get a warrant from the secret FISA courts after he was elected. He kept his word... such that it is.

Not too long ago a list of things which will soon disappear made the rounds in the social network circles.

Can't list them all as I did not copy it.

I think print newspapers was listed near the top of the list of perhaps nine different things.

Near the end of the list was "privacy"

I've been told that any cell phone conversation can be replayed by authorities.

As JM often says it's a new world Charlie Brown.

Oh woo is us.

As PoGo said well over half a century ago.

We have met the enemy and it is us.

PN, he didn't keep his word, that was my point. The program continues based on what he said was a balance of national security and privacy. PN, I know obama is your cat but he is just as crooked as the rest. Color really does not matter...

" I know obama is your cat"..that is too funny.

I will only comment is that we are in a different kind of war the world has never seen before. It's loaded with tech-no war weapons. If one monitered conversation keeps another jet loaded to capacity with jet fuel from crashing into another American building'; the White House, the Pentagon, Statue of Liberty, down town Atlanta etc. etc. then we must use the weapons at hand to confront it. I know I ain't no terrorist. They can listen to me all they want. My only worry is that some of em may decide to throw a net over me and take me to a padded cell in a straight jacket. (you think they would let me take my inflatable dolls?)

Beyond that happening, no worries here.

I digress to the point that this is not about the program as oppossed to the adminstrations semantics. Would have had a lot more respect for this is the cost of national security in some cases instead of the the same old same old...

For homeland security, there is little difference between Bush and Obama, which has been all for the better of this country.

9/11

My heart is very heavy today; the 13th anniversary of 9/11 still seems like it was yesterday… I remember being in the TOC in Bosnia watching on the screen just like it was yesterday. The same feelings of shock, sadness, and anger are still just as intense as it was ...

White/Hispanic unarmed white young male shot by black police officer. I don't recall the white house making any statements and I wonder if they will send any aides to this young mans funeral. As long as we continue to perpetuate "it's ok he's black" this double standard will continue to ...

Race Based Hate Crimes are Color Blind
August 20, 2014
As the Ferguson fiasco continues most of the claims have been that the white community is guilty of race based violence and purported inequities. The link below denotes more race based hate crimes primarily against whites. My question is; should the "white" community in DC be rioting and demanding change? ...

Abandon Ship...

So... Hillary begins the journey of distancing herself from the administration she has steadfastly supported after losing the DEM nomination 6 years ago. She apparently has been openly questioning Nobama's position regarding Syria and his lack of leadership dealing with "Hard Choices" concerning foreign diplomacy. I suspect it will not ...
