blackcatseye and your point is???? I said it was in 2008 and if you watch the video he is on the show talking about an FBI agent who consulted for the movie. What are you jabbering about exactly?

Well, I don`t run the media. I don`t listen to conservative radio (too right wing) and I don`t watch FOX news (too one sided). But I have a memory. And like I said, I remember the sigh of relief when McCarthyism breathed it`s last breath. I also vividly remember the fear of Hoover`s tyrannical reign. And I don`t want to see that repeated. Not by conservatives and not by liberals. Not now. Not ever.

"don`t pretend you`re not defending Obama simply because he`s a liberal."

I honestly don`t have a problem with agencies charged with my safety recording calls for evidence or leads of attacks so they can prevent them. I don`t now and I didn`t then. Who is president has nothing to do with it.

My problem is that it has been going on for over a decade and anybody knew that. Now all of a sudden there is conservative outrage. You may have disliked it the whole time but it certainly wasn`t all over conservative sites, and leading off conservative radio and FOX news when it happened under Bush.

H.G. Don`t be an ass. I never said it was proposed by a liberal or passed by liberals. I said it was a bad idea. As a conservative, I question ANY time someone wants to pass this law or that law. I try to imagine a worst case scenario for it. An extreme abuse of it as it were. I don`t care who wrote the thing and neither should anyone else. A bad law is a bad law. Period. But don`t pretend you`re not defending Obama simply because he`s a liberal. That just insults everyone`s intelligence. If he`s wrong then goddammit, call him out on it. I did that with Bush, I did that with Reagan, and I certainly did that with Nixon. I admit I`ve done it more with Carter and Clinton (especially Clinton) but those were more political disagreements. This is moral. Goddammit, it`s personal! You should be appalled over this. So should everyone.

"if the United States ever becomes a communist nation, it will be because the people voted for it and never even knew that they did. Well guess what people? We are almost there."

F.uck me. You do know that communism is mostly an economic policy as opposed to a political policy right?

The richest 1% of Americans are worth more than the bottom 90% combined. Oh ya, we are just on the verge of communism. How long does it take someone to get brainwashed to the point of that level of stupidity? Just curious.

"Dumb poo Bush signed it after it was passed by a Liberal congress."

Do you know how much time I spend on here correcting things that are TOTALLY untrue?

211 republicans voted for the patriot act with only 3 against it.
145 democrats voted for the patriot act with 62 against it.

Now I`m no mathematician but I can look at those numbers and figure out which party supported it more. Can`t you?

Oh and another thing. The patriot act was passed during the Bush administration. But it was a knee jerk reaction to the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. So was the creation of The Office of Homeland Security. Both of these were and still are bad, no, horrendous ideas BECAUSE they were knee jerk reactions! But congress saw an opportunity to gain more power over the people by capitalizing on a tragic event. AND they`re fervently hoping for another tragic event so they can go even further.
Someone once said that if the United States ever becomes a communist nation, it will be because the people voted for it and never even knew that they did. Well guess what people? We are almost there.

That wasn`t even two cents worth. In fact I`m pretty sure you owe me 5 cents for wasting the time it took to read it.

"You are defending Obama`s use (or more properly, abuse) of power"

It isn`t an abuse of power. If you have a problem with the laws fine, but neither he nor anybody else has broken any law as far as I know. The Republicans gave the government those powers. His administration is simply using them.

"We have been saying it since the patriot act was passed."

Jesus Christ man. It was introduced by a Republican. It was Passed by the House 357 to 66 with almost all dissenters being democrats. The Senate passed it 98 to 1. It was signed by a republican.

The patriot act was a Republican creation. You conservatives and your revisionist history.

I just finished reading these comments and here`s my 2 cents worth.

Holy God, you have to be a special kind of stupid. You are defending Obama`s use (or more properly, abuse) of power with regards to the NSA recording conversations. AND you defend it by saying conservatives said nothing during the Bush administration! Pull your f*cking head out of the sand! We have been saying it since the patriot act was passed. It never made national news because the abuses were never reported. We do not care who the president is that`s abusing their authority, just that it is being abused. But as far as your concerned, Obama can do no wrong. And you know what? He counts on that attitude from you sheeple.
I grew up in a post-McCarthy era when the communist witch hunt wounds were still fresh. I remember the abuses Hoover did and the damage he caused to so many good and decent people. If you don`t heed the mistakes made in history, they will be repeated.

"Talk on the phone without fear of it being recorded."
"How about, not having to get to an airport two hours early"

So let me get this straight. Your phone call may or may not be recorded without your knowledge which in no way affects your life in any way and security at airports takes longer to get through when you fly. For those two reasons we are just like " pre-WWII Germany" and with only "small little slivers of liberty left"?

So people being rounded up and forcibly sent to camps because of their religion is just like long lines at the airport?

Do you have ANY idea how bats.hit f.ucking nuts that sounds?

Okay. Recorded is a strong word.

Without fear of it being saved on a hard drive and scanned for key words.

There, better?

How about, not having to get to an airport two hours early, and having to go through an xray machine with my shoes off? Back in the 80`s and 90`s, you could get to the airport 30 mins before. Just profile, and I wouldn`t be bothered.

"There are small little slivers of liberty left, but as a whole this country isn`t any different that pre-WWII Germany, without a Hitler of course."

Holy s.hit dude. Are you serious? Turn off Rush Limbaugh and get of Drudge you need to detox.

Please tell me which freedoms you had in the 80s and 90s that you do not currently have.

What is it that you would like to do today that you don`t have the freedom to do?

It`s ok HolyGod. Some people would rather have auburnjunky`s concept of freedom of speech, allow terrorists to have the same freedom of speech, allow the SnackBars to bomb us from within. As long as their schizo delusions of agents in vans giving 2 poos about their mediocre lives are completely falsified.

I`ve come to the conclusion that the whole system is drated anyway. There are small little slivers of liberty left, but as a whole this country isn`t any different that pre-WWII Germany, without a Hitler of course.

You`re entire comment was pretty retarded so I`ll break it down.

"That`s called listening Dipsheet."

Ummm. No. I said "nobody is listening" the scanning is done by computers.

"I should be able to say Allah, Jihad, Fatwa, and whatever (notice I did not say bomb) over and over to whomever I want, without fear of reprisal."

WHAT reprisal? You can say that all you want. Then your conversation may be tagged. Then it may be analyzed by someone that concludes the context is not threatening and doesn`t pose any threat.

"I think it`s funny you liberals are supporting this practice, when you all condemned it before Obama was elected."

No I didn`t. I`ve never really had a problem with what the intelligence community does to gather information. My opinions don`t change based on who is president.

"Conservatives have shunned the practice the entire time."

Seriously? Then how did the patriot act get passed?

Why is FOX suddenly in uproar over this while they never mentioned it for the entire time it was happening under Bush?

Why are there suddenly tons of IAB posts about it? Were those happening 6 years ago?

"They record the calls and they are scanned for keywords"

That`s called listening Dipsheet.

I should be able to say Allah, Jihad, Fatwa, and whatever (notice I did not say bomb) over and over to whomever I want, without fear of reprisal. That`s called freedom of speech.

I think it`s funny you liberals are supporting this practice, when you all condemned it before Obama was elected. Conservatives have shunned the practice the entire time.

But no doubt the majority of viewers laughed at this idea and blamed it on conspiracy nuts like you do everything that steps out of your cozy reality.

@HolyGod - My thoughts exactly, hahaha! I`m sure there are out of shape NSA/FBI/CIA agents sitting in vans across the country od`ing on coffee & donuts while listening to our phone calls.

Wait. I`m confused. Do you guys actually think someone is LISTENING to your phone call? Is that what you are picturing? You are on the phone and there is some guy in a dark room with a headset on taking notes like in some mob movie?

They record the calls and they are scanned for keywords or combinations of words like assassinate, president, bomb, jihad, Allah, fatwa, whatever.

Nobody is listening to your f.ucking phone call. Get a grip.

caper, I can guarantee that foreign governments ask our intelligence services to monitor their citizens too, much in the same way we subsidize so many foreign defense budgets.

And since we don`t have 1970`s technology, we can analyze practically an infinite amount of information with minimal manpower.

I am being sarcastic, he`s wasn`t responsible for it at the time... now`s another story, but then again like Bush the machine has a way working regardless of who`s in charge.

Also, they don`t have to listen to all of it. There are computer algorithms that hear words and inflection. The programs isolate those calls and tag them.

Not that I agree with the practice, just saying it`s pretty well known that this occurs, and how they do it.

The USA has a population in 2013 of 316,000,000.
Say 50% of them have phones and use them for the (current 2013) statistic of 1 hour per day = 158,000,000 hours per day.
If 1 in 5 calls is recorded = 31,600,000 hrs to be listened to
Divide that by average 8.4 hrs working day = 3,761,904 people listening.
Nearly equivalent to the entire population of Los Angeles, (2012 census) just to listen to the calls.
Then another town half that size to interpret and collate any important information and feed it to the relevant authorities.
My deepest sympathy goes out to the land of the free: 1 in 56 of you are spying on the rest of you; another unknown percentage of you are saving this info for future use against you. You have every reason to be paranoid; I don`t think even the commies had it that bad!
Ding-Dong! ah that`s the doorbell. I wonder what those men in black suits want?

One in five? Do you even realize how many phone calls that would be? There are ~314 million people in the U.S. alone.

Say there is an average of 2 phone calls per person/per day. With the "1 in 5" assertion, that`s one recorded phone call for every 2.5 days. or 1,256,000 phone calls recorded, every day. If an average phone call is 10 minutes, that is 12,560,000 minutes of conversations recorded and stored, every day.

They would be PRETTY damn bored listening to my conversations. Especially the 1-2 hours calls between myself and my 72 year old father. He likes to tell me what he did and did not plant in his garden. What is growing well, etc. AND sometimes he reads me his entire grocery list!

I`m a good daughter *sigh*
