What If Richard Nixon Had Had Your E-Mail Password?
If he were President right now, Richard Nixon would absolutely adore today's National Security Agency. Nixon would be able to snoop, shadow and spy at will. He could read your e-mail; see what you've googled; check out your browsing history; find out whom you called, who called you, when you spoke and for how long; and know where you are at every moment, because of that GPS chip in your phone.
And he wouldn't have to offer that lame, barefaced excuse that there was a Communist hiding under your bed. No, all he'd have to say is that there is a terrorist hiding under your bed.
(Maybe you need a bed that's closer to the floor. But then you'd have to watch out for the rats.)
When I was a kid, I sure didn't trust Tricky Dick. But as I grew up, I realized that the problem went well beyond The Trickmeister. He was simply exploiting spytech to its fullest. I learned that President Eisenhower had spied on Eleanor Roosevelt, that J. Edgar Hoover had recorded Martin Luther King Jr.'s private conversations, and that Lyndon Johnson had enlisted the FBI's assistance during his 1964 campaign. For almost a century, the federal government has used surveillance to keep tabs on civil rights, environmentalist, and antiwar activism. Spying on us: it's the one thing that Republicans and Democrats seem to agree on. It's bipartisan. It's as American as apple spy.
That's one reason why the revelations over the past few days of near-universal government surveillance are so disturbing. Microsoft, Google, Apple they're all in on it. Former NSA official William Binney has said that we are "on a slippery slope to a totalitarian state." I don't know what's worse: that I'm not sure he's right, or that I'm not sure he's wrong.
Fortunately, I'm a Member of Congress, so I can do something about it. And you are likely an American citizen and voter, which means that you can help.
I'm introducing a bill that I call the "Mind Your Own Business Act". This bill prohibits our government from spying on us, or collecting data on us, unless there's probable cause that you have committed or you will commit an act of terrorism or similar criminal offense.
But a lot of the lemmings just love this idiot.May the FORCE be with you!

This guy is generally a disgrace to both Florida and the nation. But I find it interesting that he's finally stopped worshipping at the feet of Obama. Of course he's following the general dem line that "they all do it" What they forget is Lord Obama was supposed to be the most transparent president.
Actually he is---the most transparent prevaricator of the truth. (fancy way of saying liar).

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

OK, I'll play his game. Here's the thing, Richard Nixon is dead. Nothing can change that. He didn't have my e-mail nor, in 1972, did he have the capability to travel forward into time to get me e-mail. As I keep telling these "progressives" who try to put some moral relativism on this is that we can speculate all we want. Nixon didn't have my e-mail. Neither did Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, Hitler, Tojo, Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Eisenhower, Reagan, Bush 41, or Slick Willie. But what we have now, today, is what we have. Obama has my phone records(my land line is Verizon), access to my web searches(I use Google Chrome), and probably my cell phone info(Sprint). What we have is what we have and that is this administration is wiping their ass with the Constitution and has been doing so since day one. Obama is also a liar and a charlatan. He sold the people a bill of goods by making promises he had no intention of keeping. GITMO is still open, the Middle East wars are still going, and the wire taps, that he accused Bush of doing, is a reality. That is the unmitigated truth. As Andrew Wilkow says, the arguments we make here cannot be broken. We're right, they're wrong, end of story.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.
