Excuse me all but why do you keep talking about law enforcement already doing this? Are you seriously trying to suggest that what is being proposed is no worse than the crude infra-red technology used to find pot homes? Or the cameras from some aerial survey?
Do you understand the unbelievable sophistication of these tools used by the National Recon Office? What these satellites are capable of? The technology being used is 10 years ahead of anything on the market and available to commercial enterprises. And that's a guesstimate.
The potential for violating privacy is just too great. The program makes us less secure in our homes and property and should be abandoned.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 17.08.2007 @ 15:53
You wouldn't know what a conservative is if one came up and bit you in the ass. Reagan never said for people to give up their rights to government. That's absurd on its face and shows an incredible ignorance on your part.
No conservative has ever said such a thing. No one. Ever. Either educate yourself or stop commenting here. I'm sick to death of your stupidities.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 17.08.2007 @ 09:23
"Smacks of Fascism" is quite a bit different than say it is fascism.
And the spitting at lefties is justified considering there is no having a rational conversation with them about this issue. I've given up.
And the slippery slope argument doesn't mean that anything bad will happen. It's just easier for it to happen - a nuance that seems to escape most on the left.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 17.08.2007 @ 08:43
maybe some of the cowardly asshats who visit this site and recite their history lessons like they're middle east experts would actually fight it might make a difference.
Nope. Ricky Dickey Moran makes his stand behind a laptop. And please excuse me that I can't spell "Dicky" right. That's because I'm not really Rick Moran. I am a sick, psychotic internet troll who comments using Rick's name.
And the reason your comments don't appear right away because I've been known to have one of my "episodes" and spout obscenities like someone suffering from Tourettes. So Rick has to have comments moderated lest I pollute his site with my insane drivel.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 15.08.2007 @ 18:01
C'Mon. You can't be that simple minded r4.
A faction at the agency has been attempting to undermine the Administration from day one. The fact that WSJ, WaPo, the New York Times, have all said exactly the same thing seems to have escaped your notice.
A "faction" is not the agency in general nor does it apply to the overwhelming percentage of employees who are loyal and leave politics out of their careers.
Perhaps next time, you might want to think a little before making an ass of yourself with an inane comment like the one above.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 13.08.2007 @ 16:18
Try coherence next time. It helps people believe you aren't a complete idiot.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 13.08.2007 @ 17:25
Basically, a meaningless exercise. Romney was expected to win. He won. He spent a lot of money to make sure he won.
I don't think you can make the argument that anything has changed. It's not going to boost Huckabee that much nor will it give Brownback anything of note.
In the sense that it is meaningless, yes I could care less. Fodder for the pundits for a day or two and that's about it.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 12.08.2007 @ 10:06
by the way, don't miss KOs, my personal hero and blogger who will be on Meet The Press explaining why we here are in the toilet.
By the way - everyone knows I'm not really Rick Moran. You can tell from the fact that the above are comments from an idiot, not a smart guy like Rick.
I can't help it if I wet my pants over Rick. I love him and want to have him - in a manly sort of way, of course. I love him so much I pretend I'm him.
Gotta go - my mom is knocking on my door wondering if I'm playing with myself again - thinking about Rick, of course.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 11.08.2007 @ 17:32
Oh by the way...what would I know about getting my fanny kicked?
Who gets their fanny kicked hiding behind a blog? Besides, I know that I sure as hell wouldn't go to Iraq. Heck, I don't even use my real name in these comments! I'm so pathetic, I pretend I'm Rick Moran because if he knew who I was, he might come and beat me up. And since I really am pretty much of a coward, I figure if I use Rick's name, no one will be able to tell that I've had a 3rd grade education and still wear training diapers.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 11.08.2007 @ 17:28
I don't dispute for one second that things have been botched in Iraq. But to say we've been getting our "fannies kicked" is just not true in any sense.
Perhaps if you can name one engagement where al-Qaeda or the insurgents have come out on top, I would revise that assessment. Plus, we're killing 10 of theirs for very one of ours. To say that we're getting our "fannies kicked" is demonstrably false.
I agree with your assessment otherwise. Previous commanders didn't have a clue - nor did the suits in the Pentagon or their military counterparts. Petreaus has evidently been able to apply what he learned and make adjustments. The results speak for themselves.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 11.08.2007 @ 15:24
