Senator Feinstein stands up for the separation of powers, the Left sulks.

No wonder the right keeps winning. At least they have sense enough to protect their own.

Watch this whole video of Senator Feinstein laying out the CIA’s latest overstepping of its’ authority
and then go visit any of the many left leaning political sites and read what the average leftist thinks about the whole thing.

Sorry Senator to tell you this. Don’t look for help from the Left as they are too busy jostling for a place in the line forming to stab you in the back!

You know what- don’t bother going to the leftist blogs and sites such as Common Dreams. I’ll tell you all you need to know. They are basically calling the senator a hypocrite, that she doesn’t mind if regular citizens get spied on but don’t dare spy on the bigwigs! In other words, they are parroting what someone like Rush Limbaugh might and probably is saying. Getting hung up on that instead of seeing the big picture
which is that these alphabet agencies are getting more and more money from the taxpayers, and doing less and less for it except for on one front: they are going all out in the effort to spy on all of us and on world leaders and on the outfit charged with providing oversight as per our constitutional framework, the U.S.
Senate.

I believe that we are at a critical moment in our history as a free people. I also believe that it may be too late
to do much about it, but the effort must be made to preserve our remaining freedoms that haven’t been taken from us. We are fortunate to have a brave Senator Feinstein who is willing to stand up and say enough is enough, and who recognizes the danger to the constitution that this CIA action represents.

I applaud and support her and sincerely hope that my colleagues on the Left get over their pique and start
helping out in the fight to rein in these out of control agencies in Washington and elsewhere.

My visit to the local MetroPCS company store in Stanton, California

Actually my second, the first was about a year ago when I signed up for new prepaid service. For the longest time, I had an account with AT&T, normal billed service with a contract. Then I discovered pre-paid cellular and was a Virgin Mobile customer for around 3 years. Now I have been a smartphone customer(LG Motion 4G) with MetroPCS and it is time to step up to a better phone with a larger screen. Right now, Metro is running a special with the LG Optimus F6 which is more a mid-range phone going out the door for $79 after a 20 buck rebate to be mailed out and after reading the reviews, I decided to go to the local store and pick one up. Right away, let me tell you that I am 59 years old and hip hop is not my idea of easy listening or "muzak." But that is what I had to listen to for the 20 minutes or so that I had to wait for my name to be called for service. Bottom line, the phone is not in stock and they couldn't tell me when it would be, and they told me to try independent resellers, their local dealers. So I went to one near my "office" in Anaheim and they don't have the phone either. Bummer! So now after thinking it over for an hour or so, I have decided to check other pre-paid services and see what they have to offer. I have been perfectly happy with MetroPCS but it is possible that all that hip hop music has affected my brain perhaps. For sure, it has caused me to come out of their spell. Morongobill P.S. I am writing this on my new laptop and have not installed Windows Live Writer which is my preferred blogging software. So blame Google Blogger for the lack of formatting in this post. Believe me it looked good in their software.
