    times I think we're a right wing site that doesn't trust the guberment.  The right wing wackos believe the guberment is out take away all our rights starting with the right to bear arms.  I'm beginning to think more and more there is some common ground with the left and the right on these issues.  Conservatives are okay with this NSA crap that's been going on.  Most of the Dems in Congress are even cautiously okay with it. Most of the middle doesn't seem to care that much.  The far left and far right are all up in arms.
    There is distrust of the DEA like the right wing distrusts the IRS when the IRS says those 501 charities weren't targeted for political reasons or that the Bengasi attack isn't some kind of CT.  It's kind of confusing when to believe the government and when not to believe it.

    On this particular issue I don't believe there are that many cases that an  in camera review of the source when it's denied for national security reason can't be held.  Then again in camera is secret so we have the same problem.

    I have ALWAYS said and believed the biggest fear we have to freedom is the government. Be it privacy, social issues or even fiscal and monetary polices.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

      ...and missed defunding the NSA by 12 votes last week in the House.

      Let's stop pretending people who oppose these are "whack-a-doos" "on the fringes".
