Outraged Civil Libertarians???? We Did Not See Nor Hear Them Back Then!


Before you read the screed that follows from Benjamin T. Moore, Jr.,  consider a quick check-in on a article published in 2006. The article relates to my often mentioned (this week) previous revelations of NSA and telephone carriers. AT&T has previous experience with NSA and security measures post 9/11.  
Mr. Moore's linkage addresses, there was no groundswell of noise and clamoring about invasion in 2006. Why all the noise now?  We actually know why, but the question is worthy of posing from time to time. Also know that many of these leaks are for a reason. As the economy improves and other positives relate to our well being manifest. Some entitles need issues that may help in coming elections (e.g., 2014 and 2016).

WHERE WERE ALL THESE OUTRAGED CIVIL LIBERTARIANS 7 YEARS AGO???

WHERE WERE ALL THESE OUTRAGED CIVIL LIBERTARIANS 7 YEARS AGO???

Hey! I don't want the Government reading my mail, email, listening in or monitoring whom I talk to. I've been hollering about this since the mid 90's. Very few listened and quite a few were convinced I slept in a tin foil hat. 

Now everybody is waking up to the reality that has been in existence for years now. If you are just now becoming aware of invasive government spying, okay, you've been living your life as an inane twit! Objectionable, but I can forgive you. 

What I cannot forgive are these suck mouth Congress Critters who've known about these programs all along. Many of them voted on them to put them in place. Don't feign shock now! What? It was alright when G. Dumb W. Bush was reading your mail and monitoring your phone calls? Now that the President is a Black man... that's a bridge too far??? Really??? 

I personally think it is great that not only are the People suddenly paying attention, but perhaps those spineless hypocrites in Congress will reverse some of these totalitarian Bills they once thought were good ideas?

The simple truth is, *pay careful attention*: The Government hasn't broken ANY laws! That's right, none of these fake scandals have been able to point to a violation of the actual laws passed by - guess who - THE CONGRESS! 

• Benghazi: Come to find out, Ambassador Stevens refused additional security forces... several times!
• Dr. Susan Rice: She was not involved. All she did was present the briefing prepared by the CIA. Should she have ignored the CIA and started guessing about what happened? 
• DOJ Media Probe: Clearly a matter of National Security because someone committed espionage. Publishing the fact that we had gotten our hands on one of their new explosive devices put countless American lives at risk. Yeah, I'd want the DOJ do find out whom was leaking information!
• IRS - TEA Party Investigation: Turns out, according to the Law passed by Congress, NONE OF THE TEA PARTY GROUPS should have been granted 501c4 status. Not One! So looking into them and yes, Democratic groups too, should have been done!

So what's the "scandal?" The scandal seems to be that for once, our Government is actually doing its job! Imagine that! Where was the outrage when the Patriot Act - should have been called the "UN-Patriotic Act" - was passed? Where was the outrage when Echelon went on-line? Where was the outrage when "60 Minutes" ran an expose`and actually showed the door to the room where AT&T was capturing ALL telephone calls for the NSA? Microsoft Windows used to have a "Registry key" in the Windows Registry that was labeled "NSA." Of course they denied it was a back door... but they never could explain why it was there.
