Treason!

On O'Reilly, Rep. Peter King [NY-R] was just on. He was advocating Keller et al at the New York Times be charged under the Espionage Act of 1917 for revealing how the SWIFT program cooperated with the United States to track terrorist funding.

Let the games begin.

Oh Anna, Anna, do you REALLY think that ANYTHING will come of this??...............No, come on really. Haven't even heard anything about this of the MSM. Isn't that really strange

Hey AndyJ, even Jack "Runaway" Murtha was against the New York Pravda from running with this story.

Perhaps this is finally the moment when even more American citizens realize who the real enemy to America is. And like all good capitalists many of them who had subscriptions will cancel, Causing the New York Pravda further economic pain, even though they got NYC to use emmient domain to seize the land they wanted for their new building. They will be like the wooly mammoth caught with grass in mouth as a sudden climate change freezes them into oblivious. Thsi climate change coming from the people.

Am I an optimist? Yes. To be otherwise is to get depressed and I aint fun to be with then so I refuse that path.

As long as we live, we can change things to make life better.

People will get angry and some will write letters, but in the end nothing will come of it simply because Keller and his ilk have too many friends in "high places" and will call in any favors necessary to justify their treasonous acts.

Well we managed to get Gunga Dan off the air and CBS just shuffled him out the door. So there is always a chance we can affect things.

Remember in politics it is the squeaky wheel that gets the grease, which is how we got here.. they were squeaky while we played nice. Now the tide is shifting and they are shocked to find out those in 'fly-over' country and even in their backyard can grow a spine and make these alleged princes of the media cringe like cowardly canines. Lets keep it up.

Anna, that is where we are different. You state that to be other than an optimist makes you depressed, I find it just the opposite. The pessimist is the happier person...... my reasoning being that when things go wrong, we are not bothered, because we knew that they would go wrong. However, when things go right, we are doubly happy, because we thought that were going to go wrong in the first place. A win-win situation.

And as for Dandy Dan Rather, CBS maybe got rid of him, but he had been spouting his drivel since Vietnam. Took almost a lifetime

I find myself in agreement once again with Andy. Easier to expect the worst and be pleasantly surprised than expect the best and be disappointed.

Remind me Anna: Didn't the Department of Justice say they were going to look into the NSA leak?

Attorney General Gonzales has been making the rounds lately and I have yet to hear one person ask him what the status is of that investigation.

It seems we never want to actually STOP these leaks. Perhaps they provide a political opportunity to bash the press.

I did see a rather sharp letter from outgoing Treasury Sec. John Snow to NYT's Keller:

Keller's really going to be losing sleep now isn't he?

I know well the cynicism our political system breeds with all the earmarks and pork. Kennedy bloviating and Kerry flip-flopping like he is in the Olympics encourages this.
I can see where you are coming from, some days it is easy to think that Murphy was an optimist. :)

But at the same time am so onery and hopeful, just perhaps we will see a sea change and the Muslim Supporting Media will find itself scuppered.
