So, is it easy or hard to be willfully ignorant? How can anyone who's been paying attention have forgotton the Bush wiretaps and the telcos' quest for retroactive immunity for breaking the law for Bush's electronic police state?

I don't like the electronic police state any more than than you, but you gotta get real. Jeez.

The FBI abused their power attempting to monitor and silence John Lennon.
I'm sure there are many more cases where people considered political enemies
were targeted.

This history of breaching public trust for power and political gain is the very reason
The FBI should NOT be granted one more shred of power.

But  But what about the boogey men?
Can we be trusted to protect ourselves from the boogey men?
I think we can. I think we are. I think some organizations are constantly seeking to encroach more and more into the privacy of citizens.

This is what our forbears told us would happen. Why are people shocked and stunned?
Do we deserve to persist as a species?

STEP 1:  Create a crisis.


STEP 2:  Take away all our civil rights in the name of security.

Yes. Maybe that's why our wonderful security apparatus, according to the 9-11 commission report, ignored over 120 warnings of the events about to transpire. Makes sense, doesn't it?

I also seem to recall that so much "intelligence" was gathered that we didn't have the manpower to sift through it all. Never heard one way or the other whether that was dealt with.

Tens of billions annually to find terrorists and they've convicted how many? Twelve in the last nine years? Twenty? So, let's give it up for the Federal BI. Because, don't you know, you have to give up your freedom to protect your freedom.

First, they wanted more access. It was given.
Then they wanted complete access. It was given.
Now they want it typed, double spaced, on 8 x11 white bond.
Next they will want to perp to provide his own text at his own expense.
Demands without end, amen.

It's completely transparent. My phone bill contains at least line item specifically charging me for the phone company expenses and profits for collecting and facilitating the collecting of data regarding my phone calls and other communications.

I'm against this because it will increase my phone bill.

This from the same punkass coward who ignores armed militia goons who threatened the President, white power groups who stomp around more freely thanks to their 'tea party' hosts, and theocratic thugs who continue a 30 + year pattern of terrorism at abortion clinics? After ignoring all of the above, the cowards raid dozens of totally peaceful anti-war activists. No, these buffoons do not need an expansion of power.

Nobody believes the FBI anymore.

They should know this from their unrestricted data collection and data mining.
