OK just when I think we've hit a new low...it's this quote that confirms for sure without a shadow of a doubt: Our "leaders" are complete idiots.
If it was not so pathetic...I would laugh. Actually I did laugh, when I read this quote with the former "president" of the United States defending the most invasive, totalitarian spying apparatus in the history of the world.
George W Bush: " 'I put that program [PRISM] in place to protect the country. One of the certainties was that civil liberties were guaranteed,' Bush told CNN in an interview airing Monday. 'I think there needs to be a balance, and as the president [Obomba] explained, there is a proper balance.' "
1. It is laughable that he would not only take credit for it, but brag about it!
2. It is pathetic (and laughable) that someone could even utter the ridiculous words "One of the certainties was that civil liberties were guaranteed."
3. It is time to remind the former "president" and the current one of the immortal words of a TRUE American patriot, Benjamin Franklin, who said: "Those that sacrifice essential liberties, in exchange for a little safety, deserve neither, and lose both."
To hear a "president" of the most powerful nation in the world, utter such blatantly illogical newspeak, and even brag about it...is pathetic.
I for one can not believe that I helped vote into office such a bumbling dimwitted treasonous sociopath, not once, but twice, and that this man is still walking free. (Oh well...in terms of my votes, I guess if one learns from one's mistakes, all is not lost.)
But you know you have stepped into Bizzaro-World when true patriots and heroes like Edward Snowden...are labeled traitors and fugitives....while we dedicate "presidential" libraries...to war criminals!
Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.
