    Hello Family,

    I'm sure you all have heard the hoopla surrounding this admission of the president.

    I think it speaks volumes that we don't have one thread on this breaking news.

    Is it because Black folk already expect to be spied on?

    Is it because we have forever been the victim of this kind of mistreatment?

    While the rest of the country (white people) are all in an uproar ... we consider it "business as usual?"

    Why haven't we mentioned this Family? Wanna talk about it?

    :heart:

    I think Black Folks are not Suprised.

    However, his white counterparts are suprised that he broke federal law. This is like Nixon all over again.

    Hey Destee!:)

    Thanks for bringing this up! I've suspected for some time that the government regularly invades not only the privacy but also the so-called rights of its citizens. Cameras are now very commonplace on freeways and street corners. Recently, I received notification that some kind of 'device' was now being placed in neighborhoods "courtesy" of the department of water and power.....something that supposedly would make it easier to zone in on the exact location of a source of trouble with the system within minutes. I thought....hmmm....'yeah right'. It's like being under house arrest with the ankle bracelet in tow.... smh...

    I did not create a thread on this topic because of the type of responses I have gotten when mentioning Cointelpro.

    This is no different and no surprise. It only means that Cointelpro operations have been extended into the general population.

    Check out george bush's response. his concern is not that this is going on by the nsa but that this information has been leaked to the media.

    I don't think black people are surprised that bush was spying on people illegally. We;ve always known this government spies on it's citizens. I think it's white people who are suddenly worried about what we've never really had in this country, and that's freedom and security.

    The next step is to confiscate all the guns from private citizens.

    I'm trying to figure out where are all these right-wing fringe groups and militias that were so angry at the Clinton Administration for taking away thier "liberties".

    Where are the "Tim McViegh types" and others who were so angry at "government"?

    They just went off the scene totally after 9/11

    I think this is probably one of the dumbest things bush could do, because not only has he pissed off liberals and dems., he's now pissing off some conservatives and rep. because this infringement touches everyone cross the board.

    What amazes is that Bush attempts the Hamidi case and congressional approval to justify the NSA decision. He could have easliy used FISA with no issue. I am wondering why dude did not use FISA.

    I am also wondering why he purports that this is his executive privledge. He dun really made dem white folks mad by basically flushing their sanctified consitution down the toilet.
