Video: WH Deputy Press Sec. Bill Burton On WH Enemies List

Can anyone watch this, I don’t care who you are, and not come away a little creeped out and dubious that the White House’s motives with it’s snitch website are as pure as they pretend?

“We’re not keeping a list…we’re not keeping a list…we’re not keeping a list….that’s ludicrous! We’re not keeping a list…..did I mention we’re not keeping a list?”

I do believe he doth protest too much.

Here’s the thing I don’t get, and most thinking people don’t get:

Why would it be necessary for the White House to ask American citizens to snitch on other Americans to report what the White House deems “fishy” emails and websites, when the White House has has a press office that should be able to follow what is said in the new media on its own? The whole thing seems fishy to me, and doesn’t make a damn bit of sense.

Tracking Terrorists on the Internet: Bad
Tracking American Citizens on the Internet: Good

Fishism alert. The White House is reversing a nine-year-old policy forbidding the use of tracking cookies on those who visit federal websites.

Even the ACLU is alarmed.

2012 can not come soon enough.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

The Saddest Thing You’ll See All Day

This poor 17 year old girl ran away to Florida from her Muslim home in Ohio because she had converted to Christianity, and her parents found out. She’s in fear for her life because her father has threatened to kill her, and now, an Ohio court will have to decide whether or not to send  back to her parents.

Listen to her tearful pleas:

Could that interviewer have been any more dense? Has she never heard of  honor killings? She was frustrating that poor girl to tears with her ignorance.

Atlas Shrugs compiled a “gruesome gallery” of honor killing victims in the West. These things happen more often than people realize, and this young girl could be next.

Dem Rep Requires Photo ID To Get Into His Town Halls…

TX Congressman Eugene Green is concerned about troublemakers coming to disrupt his town hall meetings, so he means to ensure that the folks attending are actually from his district:

That’s cool, I guess. I’m not sure it will prevent angry citizens from attending his meetings since there are probably plenty of them in his district, but whatever.

So what’s his position on voter IDs, you ask?

Good question.
