What happened to "Hope and Change?" Remember, transparency and Obama was going to change things? Turn the disgusting Bush era around and restore civil rights to the country? Oh yes, and do it on CSPAN?

You people are fools. Obama is doing things Bush never even dreamed of and certainly didn't even try. But what the hell do you socialist's care? He is taking money from rich people and giving it to you. Basically, you are all prostituting yourselves for your silence. Be quiet you whores, I'll give you money and benefits with one hand, and take your liberties away with the other.

Since the thread about that facility was MERGED into this thread, this thread did become about that facility.

I don't think BO is the subject here. What people? Socialist? This has been happening for awhile. The flavor of ice cream in the ceo seat really is a small part.

True Greg, but while they're peering over our shoulders intent that we just might be 'bad guys'.....the real bad guys are walking in this country right under their collective noses.

Hell, I personally think the really really really bad guys are the guys they see in the freaking mirror every morning.

That in itself tells you what the watchers actually fear.
