A "Look, Ma, no hands" President and an Attorney General gone wild - IRA, AP, Rosen are just the latest - so no worries about our constitutional liberties there, eh, Cranky? Speaking of windbags, better check your posts here, constantly obfuscating with personal attacks (IQ's?), digressions, and rains of irrelevant factoids when you lack anything substantive to add.

This is exactly why Jim Hirschberg is concerned about his constitutional rights...you wanted web sites, check this out! ****dailymail.co.uk/.../5-month-old-taken-away....let people go an inch and inevitably they will take a mile!

Ah, yes, Cranky, the race card! Indeed, a most dysfunctional family by any measure and, consequently, an understandably warped sense of reality - a bit like yours, it seems. You have an excuse, too, I trust? Good to see you are still blathering about, though; anything else would be too delightful to be wished.

Jammer, Anderson is attempting to state, in his usual haughty condescending fashion, is that it is perfectly ok to break laws, defy the constitution and generally run amok as long as Obama is in office.

You see, since Andy knows, from personal knowledge no doubt, that Obama was raised in a dysfunctional family (read: he's black), all things that would be punishable by fines or imprisonment are now OK as long as they're anti-Obama.

It takes him a lot longer to say it, and he'll be here shortly to attempt to deny it in his best Dr. Zachary Smith voice, but the truth is hard to hide from. Even for a big bag of wind like him.

Taxed... You overlook the fact that Clinton and his Asst. AG, Jamie Gorelick, had comparmentalized our internal and international intelligence in the name of civil rights (for aliens?) so that the FBI & State and local police were unaware of what the CIA & military intelligence knew about the 19 9/11 hijackers activities; indeed, police in MN had the 2oth designated hijacker in custody along with his computer containing information that would have blown the 9/11/01 operation had not access to that computer's info been prevented by the feds. Now, ditto Boston 9/11/13. [Get that, jammer?]

Anderson, If the feds under Bush had been doing their jobs and working properly with state and local police that jihadist would not have gone unhindered in, out and around the US, the World Trade Centers would still be there? It looks like that the point of your statement would refer to Bush also. Or is it you just hate Obama and like to blame him for all your problems in life?

Toosubtle for you, jammer? If the feds under Obama had been doing their jobs and working properly with state and local police that jihadist would not have gone unhindered in, out and around the US. A little post-event over-zealousness on the part of state and local authorities is understandable AND less a threat to our liberties than over-zealous feds.

It's like everything today - its over the hill, its over reported over hyped, over secured, over kill, etc. 25,000 armed troopers,officers, etc. and take 6 million people down to find one person - who was hiding to start with in a backyard boat. wow we are getting so afraid anymore of ourselves it scary. THE only thing this country has to fear is fear itself. anderson I bet you love this kind of drama dont u.....lol

An idea from a people who cherished freedom, written by a few, challenged by many - Still withstands the tests of men and time. Cry afoul as many do, yet there is no loss of meaning and function... . just the patience of a people who have become disconnected from a "we the people" understanding to ME THE PEOPLE posterity.

soundco... there is no truth to your story. The Governor of Mass. ASKED that people "shelter in place" for their own protection. Name the website that has pictures of people being "rousted out of their homes" at gunpoint! Wow, now your comparing this "less than 24 hour" event to the Holocaust? You just are paranoid as h3ll! The old saying "never argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience" certainly applies to you soundco. I'm done with you soundco, and if everyone else is smart they will ignore any of his posts!

When you viewed the videos etc of peoples' accounts of armed police invasion in this case, tell us what search words you used and which search engine, and the title of the article/video it yielded, so I can view the same thing for myself. I would like to see it, perhaps others would also.

Colonel, If one of your loved ones were missing and presumed in a certian area, held by a nut job, would you want the police checking EVERY house or just asking questions to anyone that might be outside? And before you awnser, think about this, If the law catches the bad guy by entering a house uninvited and stops a murder, they are heros. If they do not because they did not have permission to enter, people would say the cops did not do their job.

When the FBI, CIA, ICE and other federal agencies - led by an ideologue shaped as a youth within in a very disfunctional family - have fallen down on the job, it's hard to fault state and local authorities for overstepping Constitutional bounds in efforts to protect the public. It is also a lot less threatening to our indvidual liberties than similar action by the federal authorities themselves.

Getting back to the Boston situation. I see nothing wrong with asking ppl to stay in. And during the house to house search I doubt very much that the searchers were pointing their guns at the residents of the home. Of course they would have their guns drawn during search in case they came upon the bomber. They got their man and all is well. Some of you are blowing this thing way out of perportion. I for one am glad they took swift action. The message to that kid was "there is nowhere you can hide".

Oh, really? "I'm a libertarian unless I'm not" soundco says everybody is free to choose their own way of life, la ti da, unless it's women? Then they are subject to the opinion of someone else?

Well, using that logic, I want all guns banned. Hey, it's my opinion, so you all have to live by it!

Fair?
