that he wouldn't DREAM of listening to Eisenhower. Hell, he doesn't even listen to the people HE CHOOSE to give him recommendations. If you wanted controvertible proof that the man is out of control, and a complete traitor to what he ORIGINALLY stood for, look no further.
who are fine with our government entrapping people because they might be terrorists, are in for a rude awakening when they suddenly find themselves targeted. An unrestrained government is tyranny, pure and simple.
They are the same people who think it's okay for police to throw a bag of weed or a gun into the backseat of a car, because the driver looked like a hippie.
I was thinking about creating a page that was nothing but posts for these assclowns, and call that page "Shit I don't believe, but was paid to write". Gather them all together, put a nice disclaimer at the top, then bullshit away. Fun, funny, and I get paid.
Or would they notice? They seem kinda dumb, so I'm thinkin' I might get away with it.
Right on, John! We are spending WAY too much time saying "We gotta do this, because...terrorism" without ever asking what are we trying to accomplish? Because if it's "keep everybody safe" or "end terrorism", we might as well just tear up the Constitution, because you can't do that in a free society. Hell, I don't think you can do that PERIOD. But certainly not in a land of laws and civil liberties. But I think that if we quit murdering people in other countries because we think they might be terrorists, if we make a big show of it, it might start to make it so these countries hate us a little less. The fact is that we have SO lost the moral high road that we are every bit as bad as "our enemies". Until we change THAT, we really can't say or do anything ethically.

If you didn't hate Google so much, you could have found out the source of that quote (Francois de La Rochefoucauld btw) as the top result of just typing the quote in. Or do you not want Google to know you can quote historical figures?
