    king was a Nazi, who operated on Nazi funding. stole martin luther name, still no birth or death certificate for a martin luther king, but to his legacy and credit there is the ghetto, so we had/have a Michael the ghetto king, and a barry the welfare king. what a country!

    Cassius Clay aka Muhammed Ali is a Black Muslim….a racist black supremacist and separatist group. It only makes sense to keep tabs on members of that group.

    How about Sen. Fulbright of Ark. (Clinton’s mentor) and Sen. Pike? Shoot J. Edgar Hoover had the goods on anyone that was a somebody!

    While they’re at it, how about a provision, or a separate bill, granting amnesty to the guy who exposed the NSA mess — Snowden — at considerable personal inconvenience and expense?

    do you really think that any laws against spying on Americans will be adhered to? This gov’t and especially this administration will continue to do their dirty work against the citizens of the United States of America at any cost! We think because some politicians are acting on our behalf this will go away and we can get on with our lives? You are a fool if you believe they will not continue to spy on us!!! This is so comforting to know that these politicians have my back…now i feel safe and can give up my guns..NOTTTTTTTTT ever!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “Analysts cited by British newspaper The Guardian predicted the White House would pursue superficial reforms that simply increase NSA and FISA court transparency but don’t limit surveillance.” That is what this administration is all about – superficial.
