Obama Dismisses Boehner Lawsuit As Nothing More Than A 'Stunt'


Where is the outrage over former President Bush's use of "excessive" executive orders? Where is the outrage over former President Regan's use  of "excessive" executive orders? Former President Nixon? Former President Ford?

Unfortunately, we can't sue Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Rice, Feith and the others for malpractice. But we can stop listening to them.” Jonathan Landay

The fact that technology now allows an individual to carry such information in his hand does not make the information any less worthy of the protection for which the Founders fought. Our answer to the question of what police must do before searching a cell phone seized incident to an arrest is accordingly simple — get a warrant." Chief Justice John Roberts

Soon, I try to say that I am gay, and with tears in my eyes I finally say it. I’m plugging my ears.
