  •  Prosecutions for what? (7+ / 0-)

    Over the top rhetoric is protected by the 1st Amendment. in your 1st sentence, you want the Justice Department to respect the rule of law, in the conclusion you call for them to ignore it.

      What have you. Nothing too big.
      Where you been for the past 8 years?
      I stopped reading the New York Post years ago because it was so destructively dedicated to ruining America. This harm that comes from unanswered lies and intentional undercut of social tolerance sews a lot of bad seeds.
      I don't watch Fox either, but i get a snippet now and then on the shows i trust. I do watch Congress. And i'm here most every day.
      People lose faith when justice is too selectively enforced. That clear enough?

        Indictments can't be based on "What have you."

        Why do you hate the Constitution?

          Torture has been admitted to and is not legal. Illegal wiretapping (also admitted to) - does that ring any bells? I could go on and on. There is no shortage of indictable offenses and no lack of proof. There is only a lack of will to prosecute and stir up a hornet's nest.

          •  I took renz\o to be suggesting (0+ / 0-)

            prosecutions at Fox, not the NSA. Statute of Limitations just expired on most of "the program" tho.

          •  I have to correct you... (0+ / 0-)

            All though I don't agree with it.  Wiretapping isn't illegal.  They Passed the Patriot Act Legalizing Warrantless Wiretapping.  I know, I know, I hate it too.  But I think Barack Obama knows what he is doing.  Think about it.  He voted to allow it to continue because he is doing what is neccesary to PROTECT HIMSELF AND HIS FAMILY!  He knew that there would be some CRAZYS out there that might try to take him out!  He wants to be able to compile a list of Names that might be the Next Tim McVeigh and keep a close watch on them.  In that regard I agree with him and support him.  If they take out Obama this country will explode into what will be close to a civil war!

    •  What do you suggest then? (1+ / 0-)

      What kind of legislation would you like to see?

      What kind of legal action under current law do you think would help?

      I think I understand your position on the 1st amendment by now and basically I agree with you. So, ok, what next?
