I don't often use language like that, but Hannity brings out the worst in me.
I truly hate that toad.

I don't hate very often either, but like I said, Hannity brings out the worst in me.
There's just something about this smarmy little fuck-wad, that just... well... brings out the worst in me.

And that's the agenda.
That's why he's on TV.
Not to inform, but to obfuscate.
To turn normally reasonable, rational people into haters.
Mission accomplished!

God, I hate that little fuck-face douche-nozzle.

26. Fake outrage over a problem they should have been outrage over 6 or 7 years ago.

That's why I'm having such a problem getting worked up over all of this. While I welcome the idea of regaining some semblance of privacy I can't help but be disgusted buy the blatant disingenuous attempt at partisan framing of this by the right. I'm under no illusion that their new found angst is sincere.

I already expected Hannity to talk like that very momentarily after the revelation of PRISM and NSA programs. Even I never really like watch Hannity's show but his reputation sure are too predictable for well thinking people.

30. As far as hypocrites: Many on the DU who attacked Bush's unconstitutional programs are now defending

 

Obama's even more deeply intrusive, more widespread, and even less constitutional surveillance police state.

It is not about Bush or Obama, Republican or Democrat - it is about those who support a constitutional government and those who support some form of totalitarianism.

The Guardian (who else?) has an interesting article by the Chinese artist and thinker Ai Weiwei discussing the destructive power that curtailment of individual privacy by an out-of-control government has on those who live in such a society.

NSA surveillance: The US is behaving like China

Both governments think they are doing what is best for the state and people. But, as I know, such abuse of power can ruin lives
...

In the Soviet Union before, in China today, and even in the US, officials always think what they do is necessary, and firmly believe they do what is best for the state and the people. But the lesson that people should learn from history is the need to limit state power.

More ... http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jun/11/nsa-surveillance-us-behaving-like-china


Orwell wrote that "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever." It is disheartening to me to see so many people anxious to place that boot on their own faces. Perhaps Mussolini was right - see my sig line.



How sad that even the Neo NAZI's can see the danger (note link to Obama image) in a surveillance state when many progressives seem blind to the power they wish to give the state over all people. To quote again from Nineteen Eighty-Four: "Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull."

Is this really the future that you want?

Please recall the words and heed the warning of President Woodrow Wilson: "The history of freedom is a history of limiting governmental power." Our last two presidents have done more to undermine American constitutional freedoms than any two presidents in history.

34. Durn. Never thunk 'o that. But I did find Obama's statment from 2006 I was looking for

 

when he, as Senator Obama, voted against confirming Hayden as CIA director in protest of the Bush administration's illegal and unconstitutional abrogation of the right of Americans to be free of unwarranted intrusion into their lives by NSA's illegal (and quite limited by this administration's standards) information gathering.


"I have no doubt that General Hayden will be confirmed. But I am going to reluctantly vote against him to send a signal to this administration that even in these circumstances, even in these trying times, President Bush is not above the law. No President is above the law. I am voting against Mr. Hayden in the hope that he will be more humble before the great weight of responsibility that he has not only to protect our lives but to protect our democracy.

Americans fought a Revolution in part over the right to be free from unreasonable searches–to ensure that our Government could not come knocking in the middle of the night for no reason. We need to find a way forward to make sure we can stop terrorists while protecting the privacy and liberty of innocent Americans. We have to find a way to give the President the power he needs to protect us, while making sure he does not abuse that power. It is possible to do that. We have done it before. We could do it again."

Senator Obama


Given the relative positions of power and responsibility of Obama and Hannity, I must say that, of the two hypocrites, Obama is the bigger, and certainly the more dangerous.

Time, Mr President, to get to working on that great IngSoc invention: The memory hole. Or, perhaps better, time to try and recall that you were once a principled man, and to re-embrace those principles which protect a free society.

31. Difference between a democrat and a republican

Democrats (for the most part) didn't like it when Bush surveilled people, and don't like it now when Obama is doing the same thing.

Republicans: they're all right when it's a Republican doing it, but not all right when it's a Democrat doing it.

43. I wish that were true.

Unfortunately, a lot of Democrats (here!) feel that it's alright when Obama does it but not when Bush did it. Just look at all the threads making fun of those against the spying that make it to the front page. Also, some Republicans are consistent and are going after Snowden for the leak for "endangering national security" just like they would've under Bush.

40. At one time this information was gathered without oversight and without warrants.

Yes it was made legal in 2006 and Obama continued the program. It is supposed to be done with the oversight of the FISA court and other agencies. Shame barks to any tune they tell him to do, FAUX puppet.
