George W. Obama
By Santiago Villa

Translated By Talisa Anderson

11 June 2013


Barack Obama lied when he promised to defend the right to privacy and the values of transparency on which his predecessor trampled.

The last two weeks have been perhaps the most enervating for the image of the president of the United States since he assumed office, because his hypocrisy has been laid bare. Barack Obama, who during the 2008 elections presented himself as a candidate who would correct the totalitarian offenses of George W. Bush, once in office, opted to expand the most controversial policies of his predecessor.

The hardest hitting were the revelations of Edward Snowden, a systems technician who worked as a contractor for the National Security Agency. Snowden revealed that, through two secret programs, the NSA collects data communication of hundreds – or thousands – of millions of people around the world.

Why was the text shortened? Is it policy to not include complete articles and force people to go to the source? Important parts o/t article are now cropped..

It's the Obama administration trying to stop you from voicing your slandering and propaganda.

Do you bother to read the rules before posting on sites?

I do not. My apologies, what was I thinking asking the logic of anything when its defined as 'a rule'.

Please forgive me.

See, let me explain it to you, this site belongs to Saru, so he gets to make the rules. And as long as he pays for this service you certainly have no right to question his rules, if you don't like them feel free to stay away.

As Ron Fournier, National Journal commentator, said, “the Bush-Obama era will long be remembered for curbing the Constitution.”
  I hope this is right and not the beginning of the new norm.

Fournier's comment is gross understatement.

As Kissinger famously stated, the illegal we can do now, the unconstitutional takes a little bit longer.

Obama governs like Bush on steroids. :td:

I dont care for your disrespectful tone and simplistic attempts to put words in my mouth. I was merely asking the logic of the rule, nothing more.

Or is it a rule not to ask about the logic of a rule? (thats rhetorical, please feel free to not supply me with another one of your gems in response, mr. questionmark)

Ok, let me try to explain it at your level: Who pays makes the rules, if you don't like the rules you don't have to use the free service provided by them. Freeloading and the complaining is quite rude. But with $120 a month and some free software (which seems to be what you like FREE) you can make your own site, and the rules. Have a nice day.

It is because some articles are several pages long and they would take up a lot of bandwidth. For members who have dialup loading can get extremely slow. Therefor to speed everything along it is requested not to post entire articles and provide a link to it in it's entirety.

At least that is what I understand.

Quite right, but that is certainly not the point of contention here: The point is this site belongs to Saru and that he gets to make the rules. Period.
