Sen. Dianne Feinstein Slams NSA Spying

Sen. Dianne Feinstein Slams NSA Spying

Commented Oct 29, 2013 at 15:49:56 in Politics

“How do you know this?  The first step is collection...Do you know the entire process for a fact?  What is your source?  I find it strange that you would think such a dichotomy made any real difference.”

“Spying is one thing. NSA surveillance is totally another. That is the danger! These people who are doing the surveillance, listening to phone conversations, reading emails...just who are they? They all have their own personal agendas...listening into business, medical, family, romantic, political conversations. How can any of them be trusted with all of this information. In a word, they can't! What we have is a laboratory for industrial espionage, personal blackmail, as well as the enabling of arrest and search of innocent citizens. It is a nightmare of the first order and a descent into totalitarianism.”

“Although I feel we both think alike, I can't help but throw a little cold water on your fears, because, I believe, collection is not like listening in. Listening in (and I know as a former NSA wife whose phone calls were listened to) is personally abhorrent. Collecting is less so.”

“Dream on.”

“Highly unlikely. The GOP and tea party have abismal ratings now. If Hillary runs for President, she is a shoe in and many Democratic candidates will fly in on her shirt tails. Until 90% at least of the people vote and put fear in the elected officials, nothing is going to change.”

“I wouldn't wait for the Republicans.... The Dems can work something out departmentally. If they could use up the allowance on something else, then they can take it away from another program like the study to find out why flies are black.”

“OK, when the Colorado legislature agrees to the split. I will become concerned... but not to much because the Democrats in Congress would never allow it as it would add 2 new Republican senators.”

“A bit of the drama queen, aren't you? What is third world about this country that isn't caused by the super rich? No amount of hanging out on the range is going to change the picture for you or anyone else. So being for gun control and health care for all is somehow being part of the fall of the USA? Well, if it is, hang on to the shotguns you have, cause they ain't gonna be much use anyway, but at least you can say you died for a "good" cause.”

“Either way...it will probably get on the ballot, given the mindset of the population. That's the big point.”

legaleagle 45 on Oct 24, 2013 at 17:18:03

“The big point is that it will get absolutely nowhere beyond that even if it garners a majority. This is merely political grandstanding designed to irritate those with no sense of humor. I have a sense of humor and find it amusing.”

“You are definitely reaching a saturation point...at which, I may point out, you are frustrated that there are more people concentrated in urban than rural. The rules are changing as you can see, decidedly in favor of the majority. And thank heavens!”

Komrade Killjoy on Oct 24, 2013 at 13:08:38

“Yes thank heavens, as we watch the country go third world at a pace more rapid than any empire in history. You get to claim you were part of the group who oversaw the fall of the USA (which without a doubt is happening now and your side is speeding up) as the folks who fled the cities for more independence and freedom chuckle as they watch you scramble to pretend it was someone else's fault.”

“I don't think you get the picture....at all, but then being a legaleagle why would you?”

legaleagle 45 on Oct 24, 2013 at 11:24:29

“I get the full picture, but I doubt if you do. The entire legal issue is whether the county commissioner have the legal authority to place an initiative on the ballot or whether that initiative must be authorized by a petition procedure signed by voters.. That's it.”

“No.  This is counter-fascist.  The fascist have already made their attempt to take over the government.  It is truly a State of Emergency now.”

J T K on Oct 15, 2013 at 00:34:13

“Counter-fascism can very easily become fascism itself and the President eliminating another branch of government because he doesn't like what they're doing would be totalitarian and arguably fascist, especially if he had them arrested or held.

They haven't tried to take over the government, they are using the powers given to them by the Constitution and by their own rules, only some of which were written by this Congress, to act how they want. Love it or hate it, to say that they are "taking over the government" is overly hysterical.”

“President Obama's won't be. No need to to be filled with "pufferies" as you put it. I am sure there are those in all walks of life and on both sides of the aisle in DC and beyond who are already quaking in their boots just at the thought and knowledge that Prez will report on the truth and not your pufferies. Makes me smile.”

Commented Sep 13, 2013 at 21:33:59 in Politics

“The real question is why does Obama want Larry Summers as head of the Federal Reserve? A key to that is, of course, Tim Geitner's appointment as Treasury Secretary. It seems obvious to me that Obama made some promises early on to the financial community that these sensitive positions would be filled by friendly faces. Either that, or he is definitely a conservative in sheep's clothing, going along to get along with the powerful boys on Wall St. Either way, he has betrayed those who worked for his election (s).”
