Why Everything is Screwed Up and We’re Up the Creek Without a Paddle in One Paragraph – Part 2

Fun Fact Of The Day: Mosque’s Are Off-Limits To Obama’s Snooping, Missed Boston Bombers...

(Investors Business Daily) -- The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won’t snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.

That’s right, the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.

Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.

More...

So, the US government is protecting the civil rights of Muslims, but violating the privacy and Constitutional rights of millions of Americans in the name of National Security.

Yeah... we know what THAT'S all about.

Obama flipping us the bird

    I know this may be a bit off-topic, but it relates to our 'security' b/c while the Government is saying they need to spy on all of us law-abiding citizens for our own security, they have no problem in automatically legalizing millions of illegals that have sneaked into this country and no problem in not being serious about border security by securing our borders before WE know WHO is in here already.

    So with this comment, I want to reach out to my bretheren down in Dade county.....what in the hell has happened to Rubio????

    • Think about this for a moment.

      Both sides of the political spectrum are calling the NSA leaker a "traitor", they are attacking his character, and accusing him of compromising our national security.

      In other words, the government is doing everything in its power to avoid discussing the fact that there is a general warrant designed to spy on the citizenry, and that our national security wasn't very secure if some High School dropout was able to simply download shit on to a thumb drive and expose the government's actions to this degree.

      One last thing, I've heard the argument made by people defending the NSA snooping that if you're not doing anything wring, then you shouldn't be worried about it.

      Well then, by the same token, if their spying on us isn't wrong, then why is us finding about it such a big deal?

    Barack H-U-S-S-E-I-N Obama snoop in a mosque!?! Somehow, me thinks that he wouldn't do that? I don't know why! I just can't put my finger on it, but I get the darn feeling that he wouldn't do that!

    What do they have on Rubio? Are there video tapes?

    Also, every time I think I have one less thing to worry about, like maybe I can understand why presidents need to collect date to catch terrorists, a fact comes up like we don't collect data on Mosques and I have to change my mind and get back to worrying about it again.
