12. Rather disgusting that you would use the wiretapping of MLK

to justify the Bush-Obama Police State. Rather telling, too, about the kind of person you are. If anything the example of MLK should stand AS A BLAZING WARNING AGAINST MEN LIKE BUSH AND OBAMA. As Atty General, Robert F. Kennedy played along with FBI direcor Herbert Hoover's attempts to paint Martin Luther King, Jr. as a Communist and drive him to suicide, just as he was privy to his brother's many attempts to assassinate Fidel Castro. It is a SHAMEFUL BLOT on the Kennedy name, and will stand forever, whether you think he tried to make up for things like that after his brother was murdered. Political opportunists who seek sweeping powers like Obama and Bush have, always abuse them the way RFK and Hoover abused Cold War era counter-espionage powers, and they create an atmosphere in which their underlings and successors will abuse them more and more routinely and flagrantly.
