Type C

Tuesday, January 17, 2006
I submit that there is one more type of Democrat to add to Syl's excellent post I think I understand below.

Type C discussed in gateway's post Al Gore Arrogates Himself the Right to Ignore His Past.

Type C believes that right and wrong is relative to party. Ergo if the guy has a D behind his name....it is ok fine to do all sorts of things.

I think that makes Gore a Type AB, kinda like blood. :)

It is simply amazing what Democrats often get away with. A Republican would be crucified by the MSM for saying anything similar. Oh well, their days are coming to an end.

"...two civil liberties groups – the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights – filed federal lawsuits Tuesday seeking to block the eavesdropping program,"

Great. Get a city killed, ACLU. We'll know where to find you, don't you worry.

You will notice that Christopher Hitchens, a great hero to some here or at least at Simon's site is party to one of those suits.

"We don't have any direct evidence" that the plaintiffs were monitored by the security agency, said Ann Beeson, associate legal director for the civil liberties union.

"But the plaintiffs have a well-founded belief that they may have been monitored," Beeson said, "and there's a real chilling effect in the fear that they can no longer have confidential discussions with clients or sources without the possibility that the NSA is listening."

That lawyer writing to Protein Wisdom a week or two ago had me near tears, talking about hard it had become for his Thai drug-dealer client to believe that NSA was only interested in terrorists.

Dear Abby,

Some of my best friends tell me that I must have a fear and anxiety problem if I buy into the idea that Presidential authority needs to be increased during wartime.
They say that's what Presidents always try to do, and wars are just a good excuse to take away our freedom. Plus there is always one war or another anyway.

But other friends tell me that I'm right to want the government to protect me from the mad bombers, because I can't do it myself.

I'm just too busy and flustered to have time to monitor the Al Quaida phone calls to Boston and LA, but someone has to do it.
That's what we hire them to do, and we fire them when they don't do it.

And my boyfriend says FDR did the same thing, and he was the Father of our Country.
Who is FDR?
I am just so totally confused now, and worried that all of this disagreement could damage my friendships. So what's a girl to do?

I read that Zacarius Moussaouis's computer was not checked before 9/11 because the FBI was trying to get a FISA warrant and could not get it done.

Think of the difference that could of made. And then of course Atta might have been caught earlier because of the people he was talking to back home.

When the government is tapping US persons that does not have to mean ctizens, it can mean terrorists with stuedent visas.

Rosenbergs’ Granddaughter Sues NSA Over Spying
You’d never know it from our one party media’s coverage of this story, but the "plaintiff" in the trumped-up New York lawsuit is none other than the granddaughter of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg — Rachel Meeropol.
The Rosenbergs were executed in 1953 for helping to pass US atom bomb secrets to the Soviet Union. Julius’s KGB nom de guerre was "Liberal."
Rachel is a Communist in her own right. She is a Vice President of the New York City chapter of the communist National Lawyers Guild.
Ms Meerpol is also a fixture in some of the most ultra left organizations out there, such as The Children Of Resistance.
But none of this is considered newsworthy by our watchdog media, such as the DNC’s DNC’s Associated Press

Instapundit has some good links (Cato's esp)--none of which are flattering to the (ahem) current most recent ex-VP.

That reads like people Markg8 usd to meet in lifts.

Terrye that would be incorrect. The field office in MN begged FBI HQ in DC to get the warrant. They couldn't be bothered. The guys in DC who dropped the ball?
Promoted, one with a presidential award from Bush and a large cash bonus. Anybody care to excuse this?

Buddy Larsen said...

Yep, Bush flew the second airplane.

No actually a friend of mine's brother in law was co pilot on the second plane Buddy. Your snark is about as funny as a purple heart bandaid.
