Obama wants your old email

  • "Obama wants?" when I read that headline I imagined a redneck stereotype at a Tea Party rally saying it.

  • Any person with three living brain cells KNOWS the 4th amendment is there to protect communications as well as property. What Obama and the Justice department wants should be irrelevant.

    The Obama administration and its predecessor regard Constitutional protections as annoyances that must be constantly chipped away at.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
