I would not be surprised if, in the next day or two, a Whitehouse Czar posts a video on the Whitehouse web site claiming the 'Flag' flap was a hack perpetrated by some unnamed but well dressed RNC operatives.

Even more likely after the Whitehouse mail server crashes from an excessive volume of messages reporting the words and deeds of the POTUS, many, if not most, of the Congressional widgets, political appointees, and recent legislation as...
fishy. Or at least mighty smelly.

Thanks, Cass. I can't tell you how many times, after surfing the web off and on during the day, that a post of yours has given me a lift at the end of the day so I can finally give it up and go to bed in a good mood.

Hmmm ... a bit reminiscent of the "Terrorism Information and Prevention System", wouldn't you say?

Johnny Hart would've hung around longer, if he knew the present fount of cartoonish idiocy would be flowing so bountifully...

Only if you equate planting anti-personnel bombs in public places with exercising your right to disagree with the gummint.

Like, y'know, Obie's friends and neighbors, Bill Ayers and Brenardine Dohrn do...

Washington has now made it official - lunacy is sanity and sanity is lunacy.

Much was made of the Nixon White House having an enemies list, but that, at least, was against those who wielded some sort of power, at least. We now have a White House compiling an enemies list of the average person. Is this the change we were promised?

I do like using "at least."

Posted by: RIslander at August 6, 2009 09:07 AM

At least you have come to terms with that propensity, at least.

I swear, there's something about Thursdays...

Speaking of 'revolting' isn't it laughable that Boxer is defending her astroturfers and condeming the rest of us for - drum roll- being more effective astroturfers than the Alinsky trained yahoos?

The proof she uses is that some of the folks are wearing Brooks Brothers suits and are orchestrating the rest of us polyester, leisure suit devotees in pursuit of their nefarious ends.

I can add 'astroturfer' to my rap sheet now which will be on file in the WH basement formerly occupied by Hillary's Rose Law firm records. Now that I think about it, being manipulated like a sock puppet explains the hands in my pants. Oh wait...

Didn't someone on an email list a bunch of us are on point out how this is collection of information about people exercising their First Amendment rights is ILLEGAL...? Funny how I've not seen that mentioned in any reporting on this travesty...

I've seen that argument that it violates the 1974 Privacy Act Miss LB.

It being the STASI quality of the Flag@whitehouse.gov.

I'm waiting for IWON to issue a Night and Fog Decree.

stand by.

See if Leavenworth gets re-christened Lubyanka, first...

I can think of a million reasons the WH "fish list" stinks, but as a violation of the Privacy Act of 1974, that's kind of stretching it. Of course, anti organized crime laws have been used to go after pro-life people - so - what's good for the goose is good for the gander, I suppose.

Posted by: RIslander at August 8, 2009 03:36 PM

Actually, it's a violation of 5 USC 552a -- and, interestingly enough, it's *clearly* a violation of same.

Unless they're gathering the information for the purposes of prosecuting a crime, that is. Of course, the "crime" in this instance would be -- exercising one's right to Freedom of Speech...
