      Today they major news agencies came out with new information about the extent of the government wiretapping and eavesdropping on Americans, without a warrant, during the Bush administration.

      Now army intelligence members are coming forward saying they were ordered to continue eavesdropping, even though the conversations and emails they were monitoring were those of American citizens and were blatantly unrelated to the war on terror.

      It is said that many are pushing for a criminal investigation, while Obama has remained silent on the issue, seemingly demonstrating that he has no desire to pursue the matter.

      I am wondering a few different things:

      1. Why are they just now coming forward?  Were they afraid, concerned, or is it they want to make news

      2. If Obama isn’t interested in pursuing it why?  Does he agree with the procedure?  Does he feel it was necessary at the time?  Does he not want to cause that kind of stir?  

      3. How do you all feel about being monitored by the government without a warrant or even a warranted reason?

      4. Is this necessary?  Are we living in such a new world that we have to take these measures?

      and lastly

      5. What is the point in law and constitutional rights, if they can just be disregarded..

      Thoughts ladies?

        • It or anything else the government does doesn’t surprise me, they have been doing this and still is and they won’t stop, what is the point of it all only God knows, but the newest thing to add to their watching and seeing into our lives secretly is this digital box their demanding everyone to have in their homes if they don’t have cable. Yeah right what is the point?, these boxes are a nusense. We have one the darn picture plays out as well as the sound. So I’m not surprise with what they’ll come up with next, NO! its not right but we‘re just the common folk in the eyes of the beholders of all the so called power.

        • Since Obama had more than a few private meetings with outgoing president Bush, I’m wondering if he’s keeping silent because he now knows something valuable about this kind of information gathering. I know there is a lot that we do not know and probably should not know. And I don’t feel the need to know.

        • Another thing has anyone really took the time to look at the paper money? Its has so many hidden secrets in it about our government and what is to come if you know how to read the signs on it. Look at all seeing eye on top of the pyrimid on the 1 dollar bill that is the government controling everything because they are the watchers of the U.S.A they see and know everything look at the right corner of the dollar bill very closely you will see near the corner of the crest the 1 is in you’ll see a small spider right at the leaf, that is the spiders webbing throughout the dollar what is the significance of the spider I’m not sure but the government uses bug devices not saying a spider but a mechanical bugging device for top secret stuff.

        • I’m with Leadin. Nothing to hide here. We can all just hope & pray that energy and/or eavesdropping is done where it is due, and as a result, does keep the country safer, if in fact they are doing this.
