My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
I’m for national security, who in their right mind would not want it. The Patriot Act was passed right after 911 while the country was still in trauma. It’s time for us to look at the provisions of the Patriot Act and see the ones that seem reasonable and keep those and remove these that’s give the government a blanket ability to look at our private conversations. If one of our enforcement agencies believes that there is a threat they can go to the FISA Court, a court that is secret and I believe allowed 75,000 warrants and denied 2 or 3 in the last 15 years. for them but at least there is a layer of protection because if we give up our rights the terrorists have in fact won, and that’s when we’ll have lost America. Define the age difference age Senator Paul should be wary of the wiry Senator McCann in a scuffle. AVB
This takes flip flopping to the next level. Maybe next he’ll have been on the plane with Brian Williams when it crashed in Iraq. I know my background and I am proud of my heritage. I would never say that I were Hispanic in order to garner favor. There is a trend with Republican presidential nominees. Senatof McCain called his own autobiography “Maverick” and when he ran for President he was anything but. I don’t have a super computer or I would give you all the examples of shifting sands in the political views of Governor Romney. But a few examples to pop up, he was for and signed the bill for Romneycare in Massachusetts but was against the Affordable Care Act. He was the first governor to sign marriage equality at, yet inexplicably here he devolved and was against marriage equality. Like I said there’s a pattern. It used to be first they were for it than they were against it. I guess now Jeb Bush was first Hispanic and now he’s not. Barbara Bush said it best, we have had enough Bushes in the White House. And as far as I am concerned the onl bushes that should be the White House to be in the gardens. AVB
