    It looks like the 4th and strongest branch of the Government, "We the People" stopped these attacks, and seems to do better than the other branches.

    "We the People" should start firing the other branches, and reduce our tax bills in the process while paying off the debts they created?

    We did. November '06 and November '08. Unfortunately, we now have a continuation of Bush's failed policies. Endless wars, uncontrolled spending, and expansion of government into private lives. Although to date, Obama has not invaded our God given freedoms as much as Bush-Cheney's Patriot act. I'm afraid with time, he will.

    Let's see now....this chap is an President Obama appointee. Similarly, the TSA guys that were the subject of this story were President Obama employees.

    Tell me, what personal liberties did you give up under President Bush?

    TSA nominee misled Congress about accessing confidential records

    By Robert O'Harrow Jr.
    Friday, January 1, 2010

    The White House nominee to lead the Transportation Security Administration gave Congress misleading information about incidents in which he inappropriately accessed a federal database, possibly in violation of privacy laws, documents obtained by The Washington Post show.

    The disclosure comes as pressure builds from Democrats on Capitol Hill for quick January confirmation of Erroll Southers, whose nomination has been held up by GOP opponents. In the aftermath of an attempted airline bombing on Christmas Day, calls have intensified for lawmakers to install permanent leadership at the TSA, a critical agency in enforcing airline security.

    According to Bush's own words, as a physician, I gave up my right to "practice my love with women!" That one really riled me!

    "Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB/GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across the country."—Poplar Bluff, Mo., Sept. 6, 2004

    Even though I'm not an OB/GYN, I feel repressed!

    At least you don't argue the part about record deficit spending and expansion of federal gov't! As for liberties lost, how 'bout the right to peacefully demonstrate, and redress grievances against the gov't? In Pittsburgh, WWII veterans who opposed the Iraq war had to stay in a "free speech zone" away from the president and tv cameras, or risk being detained as a securtiy threat. Ask them. And come on, you gotta admit, that quote is hilarious!!

    Put blame where blame is due if you're capable of it, Roger. The GOP holds NO majority anymore...anything Congress can't get done is THEIR OWN FAULT.

    But you keep passin' the buck regards,

    Roger-

    I don't understand your point. The GOP have blocked the guy's appointment because he's broken the law regarding privacy. Are you saying that he should be rewarded for violating the privacy of an individual?

    I'm soooo fed up with that obvious LIE! I will hound you to your death to tell me ONE time the Patriot act even involved you, let alone how it "invaded YOUR God given freedoms". You are becoming as big a phoney as the other 'ilk' you side with

    You LIE about wanting everyone to believe you are an 'independant', when you are more socialistic than most liberals on board. You are as phoney a military partizan as Kerry and Murtha. So please stop feeding us that bilge of how patriotic you are. As far as I'm concerned, you don't measure up to any real American Veteran.

    You and those that think like you will bring down this once great nation. You have played into the hands of every Communist manifesto ever written, and you don't even realize what you have done. You may have the education of a Doctor, but as an American, you have flunked out.

    What makes my blood boil is how you and the other Obamaites have taken the rest of us down with you. I feel sorry for all your grandkids. They will be as brainwashed as you, so they won't ever know what this nation was at one time. You gotta be proud!
