When we lose the ability to defend ourselves, then we lose the ability to defend the 1st amendment. it has nothing to do with hunting, or militia's or armies. it has everything to do with the IRS and DHS amassing a stockpile of ammunition and weapons. You tell me why they did it. Then tell me in 8 years if it was a good thing. Just wait, the worst is yet to come.

adkgunner, Your point about PC being outraged about violation of free speech but not so much with gun ownership rights may be accurate but it's not just his rights or even just the rights of journalists. When the little investigative reporting that is still none (most of it outside of mainstream media) is squelched then the game's over. You can kiss all the rest goodbye. If you think 2nd amendment rights are more crucial for protecting your rights than the 1st amendment you are sadly mistaken.

"Responsible freedom, of course, requires some sacrifices, but if the Bill of Rights is sacrificed, that will not stand. The grievance will cry out of its own accord and will not be silenced." Hey Pete they go after your rights your outraged??

They go after the 2nd amendment your dancing in the street!

Even I'm having a hard time "hoping" for change anymore. I'm more of the mindset that as long as they can keep up the partisan facade, this is all OK. "lets just keep pretending we hate each other while we rob the country blind..."

Anyone who thinks otherwise is just a partisan hack.

Hey! Welcome Back GuffSeney! We missed you, and you're absolutely right, he has the stupidest people he can find for his advisors. Most of them are the mediocre failures left-overs from the Bush Admin!

Ha ha! It's sad the dems are doing such a menial job, but what does that say to R's that can't even dredge up someone to beat them in elections. R's ahve zero credibility these days after years of saying NO to everything.

Hey GUFF, it was the Bush Admin that passed the PATRIOT act and that is what emboldened the DOJ to do what they did. This is the type of stuff Bush wanted.

I love the way liberals still try to make excuses for the failure and corruptness of this administration. If Obama wasn`t aware as he says of the three scandals now assailing them then he has appointed the stupidest people he could find for his advisers and department heads. If this were Bush, they would have crucified him by now.

I don't disagree with most of what you said except that the mainstream press gave up investigating the truth quite some time ago. Now we get establishment fed soundbites and opinions presented as reporting of facts. Fox is the worst but msnbc, cnn, cbs, nbc ny times etc. and to a lesser extent even npr follow this path.
