    Fucking Scum Bag politicians...:bs::grouch:

    AFP - President Barack Obama's administration is urging the Supreme Court not to take up the first case it has received on controversial National Security Agency cybersnooping.
    US government attorneys argue that the Supreme Court does not have the jurisdiction to take the case, filed in July by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC).
    EPIC believes the NSA overstepped its authority by carrying out broad communications monitoring and surveillance worldwide, and demanded the program be stopped.

    A Supreme Court decision to take the case would be "a drastic and extraordinary remedy that is reserved for really extraordinary causes," argued Donald Verrilli, an administration lawyer, in a statement released late Tuesday.

    Anyone who opposes Obama is clearly a racist.

    Isn't this an example of the whole checks and balances thing we learned in government class in 9th grade. If the citizenry feels the executive or legislative branch has overstepped it's bounds it can look to the courts for redress. Why would a Federal program not be in the Federal courts jurisdiction.

    Remember, Obama's hero is FDR. And FDR wanted to build a Supreme Court that would literally be an extension of his administration. We shouldn't be surprised.

    This POS has tried to charge reporters with espionage and treason. Took a shit on the Constitution with domestic spying and NOW wants to hamstring the SCOTUS. Im proud to say I never voted for this piece of garbage...

    Shouldn't Lincoln be right next to Obama rubbing the mud off his boots on the Constitution?

    I guess the thing that bugs me the most is how transparent the political elite have become in their contempt and fear of the public. But then again Barry Soetoro promised us the most transparent administration ever.
