Barack Obama: Well, in the end, and what I’ve said, and I continue to believe, is that we don’t have to sacrifice our freedom in order to achieve security. That’s a false choice. That doesn’t mean that there are not tradeoffs involved in any given program, in any given action that we take. So all of us make a decision that we go through a whole bunch of security at airports, which when we were growing up that wasn’t the case…. And so that’s a tradeoff we make, the same way we make a tradeoff about drunk driving. We say, “Occasionally there are going to be checkpoints. They may be intrusive.” To say there’s a tradeoff doesn’t mean somehow that we’ve abandoned freedom. I don’t think anybody says we’re no longer free because we have checkpoints at airports.


www.buzzfeed.com...

Wow!

How can anyone continue to 'believe we don't have to sacrifice our freedom in order to achieve security' and say the hydrochloro BULL HOCKEY after that.

That airport security is more invasive than ever.
Drunk drivers aren't on no fly lists, or get droned.

Well in a free society there are not checkpoints at airports in fact that is not the America most of us older people grew up in.


Amazing how Obama sounds like GWB, but Obama goes above and beyond.

Those who sacrifice liberty for security soon find themselves as having neither.

American's it's for the 'common good' to save us from all the bad people, but as I look around don't see anyone to save us as most people are just rolling over for this tripe.

Something they would not have done under the last administration.

The Criminal Traitor in Chief has spoken.

Let this be a lesson to all of you who cling to your petulant partisan party lines...it does not matter WHO you vote for, if you are foolish enough to cast a vote for a democrat or a republican you are doing nothing more than casting a vote of confidence for these criminals to continue on with this FARCE.

Abandon your republicans and democrats. They are traitors, and if you align yourself with either party, you should consider yourself a traitor to your country as well.

I fail to see where he defended NSA spying... In fact, he denied it.



What I can say unequivocally is that if you are a U.S. person, the NSA cannot listen to your telephone calls, and the NSA cannot target your emails … and have not. They cannot and have not, by law and by rule, and unless they — and usually it wouldn’t be “they,” it’d be the FBI — go to a court, and obtain a warrant, and seek probable cause, the same way it’s always been, the same way when we were growing up and we were watching movies, you want to go set up a wiretap, you got to go to a judge, show probable cause….

So point number one, if you’re a U.S. person, then NSA is not listening to your phone calls and it’s not targeting your emails unless it’s getting an individualized court order. That’s the existing rule.

Many people are confused as to what a TRUE Traitor and Dictator looks like.



Now you know.

How many years do we have left to go?

That's all I got to say.

He was the better candidate out of Mc Cain though.

Next time I'll stick with Hilary.

And you STILL believe they are different from each other?

They are only the puppets that TPTB put forward to gauge what the citizens are leaning towards.

In this way they catch each and every single presidency only to eventually move towards the desired outcome every time.

Remember Ron Paul? He wasn't on their play list.

Peace

Seriously,

I don't give a chit.

Neither one are in my life, so I don't care what happens.

But neither have done service to me, to make me care.

If it doesn't deal with me personally, I could care less.

Yep. He totally denied it. Which will be interesting because that denial flys in the
face of the information that is coming out right now.

You think that government spying into your personal life, buying habits, medical history, employment info, what TV you watch, who you associate with, your internet activity, etc doesn't affect you personally?

You have no idea, do you?

You laugh, but wasn't Hilary insane, psychopathic or just an evil Bitch? She laughed at the deaths of innocents or something, in some televised, youtube clip?

Why wouldn’t he defend it? That’s the program that likely got him elected and re-elected. It’s the same program that keeps his poll numbers high even though everyone can see the destruction around us. You don’t think there were many people forced to step aside, shut up, disappear , etc so the king could take his throne and carry out the plan of the NWO??

Meh!!


Impeachment should be the order of the day…pick your reason!

Obama denied it. He sure did. All he does is lie.


Hilary, next time?
But...you did get Hilary the puppet's controller.


You don't care?
Apathy kills.

That’s one of the reasons we’re in the situation we’re in.


Maybe you should start giving a spit before it’s too late….if it’s not already!

If nothing else you need to at least support the second amendment so when the SHTF, and you finally wake up, at least some of us will still have the means of defending ourselves. I can’t promise I’d turn back for you but just consider your demise your civic duty for your years of apathy while the rest of us were trying to stop this!

most sensible post so far, and the year, (1984) was not even the watershed, except perhaps that the snoopy's were beginning to have a sniff at ordinary folk.

"...So all of us make a decision..."



"what do mean by "we",imitation white man"

WTF is this douche talking about?
"all of us" made no such decisions
neither to help michael jerkoff make millions selling scanners [which won't detect plastic guns ]
give away billions to economic terrorists *COUGH* bankers
nor do i recall being consulted regarding the latest $100,000,000 "trip"
[but wouldn't mind the expense if he winds up caught/photographed with a lady-boy]

or is that "we" he's using a royal "we"?
