What a puppet


Senator Peter Schiff 2016


The FIRST thing I was going to say is "she's a fucking puppet."

But we all know, if it was Bush, she'd be proclaiming Edward a hero. Or if Obama was white. She's a clown. She looks the part too.

PS. From the most non-racist white person you could meet (me).

What's so weird is that Wanda knows she is wrong

What's so weird is that Wanda knows she is wrong. She is not naive, she knows whats going on. Have you guys seen, remember her talking about Tim Geithner at the Washington Correspondence Dinner? Seems like she was told to speak about Snowden in that way.

Yes. She gave herself away...

when she said "countries... like China..."

Dead giveaway. And I've only heard this not seen it.

Daily Paul cured my abibliophobia.

This post is misleading!

It refers to Sykes as a "comedian".
One has to actually be funny to earn that title.

Never liked her.
Her on camera persona is stereotypical and ghetto.

Exercise Liberty.

America Rising.
The Constitution Stands.

let me guess, an obama

let me guess, an obama supporter

screw these clowns.

yes lets just let the gov continue to spy on us instead....

what about the document that supersedes any NSA document? Hint, its called the constitution, you dumb bitch.

And also, just cause you have a college degree doesn't mean shit. She probably didn't even earn hers. She probably got hers through affirmative action. She can barely even speak english....

I would bet every penny and asset I have that Snowden destroys her and Leno on any legitimate test of intelligence.

Jay is clueless too

Why is Jay clapping to this moron's assessment of how its suppose to be. She has no clue, there is already a system in place for the Government to "monitor" someone's phone, emails, etc. They are suppose to be a "suspect" first,and then the government must get a warrant. It's called the 4th Amendment of the Constitution, which evidently Sykes and Jay are not aware of...just like the Government likes it, ignorant citizens leading the ignorant masses.
Everyone's phone, e-mail, mail, etc. is their "private" business and the Government has no business, or right to invade that privacy.
An individual's life is and should remain their own private affairs, it is not for Jay or Sykes to decide whether our business is important or not.
Looks like the Government has "control" over late-nite T.V. too.
I expect this from a moron like Sykes, however, Jay I thought you had a better grasp of what's going on, guess I was wrong.
Jay you're a puppet, Sykes is a moron.

And people ask what good is

And people ask what good is it knowing about this political stuff...
One good reason for being politically knowledgeable is so that you don't look like a complete fool on national TV.

Just an attention grab, IMO

Probably just trying to be 'controversial' or whatever.

Does anyone remember that one week a few years ago when Wanda Sykes was a household name? No? Neither do I.

I'd call her a has-been, but in her case, 'never-was' feels more appropriate.

A signature used to be here!

Whoo hoo!..

..I just discovered what's wrong with this Country... Wanda Sykes.

Sykes is either completely oblivious or is being disingenuous

I guarantee that the NSA technology in question is being pointed directly at (s)elected and high ranking officials, thereby making puppets out of them. It's not only Jim Bob and Clara Jo that are having their conversations recorded and potentially listened to.

Personally, I think her old bosses called in a favor.

Why doesn't this post have a score of -400?


I know...

..I'm not sure to vote up or down on these ones..

Another Government Groupie Whore

She used to make strong stands for personal, rights, freedoms and oppressions of her specialized groups (blacks & gays), I wonder how she feels about them spying on the black and gay leaders? I guess she's now on a more powerful team and delivering this message pays better.

Maybe she has changed her views about privacy

"I don't really talk about my sexual orientation," she told the crowd at the Las Vegas GLBT Community Center. "I didn't feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life."

"Everybody that knows me personally, they know I'm gay. But that's the way people should be able to live their lives."


Why are these two points always made together?

1. What the NSA is doing is harmless, no big deal, and you shouldn't be worried.
2. Snowden is a traitor and put the country at grave risk by telling the world what the NSA is doing.

Not only do I disagree with both of those statements...they are not even compatible with each other.

boycott her...

this is what is happening:




I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy


I watch her and I remember the TV game show host scenes from The Hunger Games...

Treason ~NOT~

Oran's Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as "...[a]...citizen's actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation]." In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aiding or involved by such an endeavor.

First thing you know about

First thing you know about the tonight show is that everything is applauded. I'm not sure if it's just a track or not, but the audience doesn't necessarily agree with her.


1st she says that a conversation between Jay and herself should remain between them.
Then when Jay points out she worked for the NSA. She flips and defends them. Wouldn't doubt if she still works for a government agency.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

She said something like

'Jay when you and I have a conversation in confidence, it is supposed to stay between us'. Presumably referencing Snowdens agreement with his employers. Apparently her feeble mind was unable to notice that the fact that none of OUR private conversations are actually private is precisely the problem! She can't really be that dense can she? Let's hope the audience noticed that odd little cognitive dissonance.

Because when you're a "public

Because when you're a "public servant" you're automatically above the law. Ha!


Precision match with Wanda's blathering! The only difference is that I watched "donkey" twice!..I cut off Wanda's rant half way though..then curled up in a ball on the floor shivering while praying for the future of humanity...

Participate in America's future- Research Ron Paul- Truth will Prevail! You too, will be proud one day, to be able to say: "I was a Ron Paul supporter."

If she were honest ...

... with herself, she would come to the same conclusion as anyone else with half a brain and no agenda.

She's no different than the black O.J. jurists. Shit, her bias is even stronger ... Obama is black AND a Dem. She'd probably make up an excuse if Obama intentionally destroyed what little career she has and put icing on that cake in the form of a round-house kick to the head.

Who is she?

Without TV, I feel like I'm somewhat out of the loop. In some ways this worries me, "OMG - I'm being left behind. I don't know who Wanda Skypes is!"

On the other hand, who cares?

Obviously this Wanda person is famous because she's on the Tonight show. But what is she famous for? In spite of the fact that she's famous, she's still dumb.

It is sad to hear the crowd cheering for her, though.

I didn't really hear Leno agree with her. It is impossible to discern his true opinion, since his job is simply to be a good host, which primarily means agreeing with your guest.
