Corruption in D.C.

There's so much that I thought a thread dedicated to it would be more pragmatic.

Obama Admin. Orders Border Patrol to Stand Down!
So...I guess it's OK for the police to no knock, break into your home, shoot your dog, and pepper spay you if the don't shoot you first...and it's cool for illegal aliens to attack our border patrol agents and they're required to retreat. What is this bizarre world? Does anyone else see the hypocrisy?

And, guess what? The "Most Transparent Administration Ever" Rejected a Record Number Of FOIA Requests

One upon a time everyone got a hearty chuckle when Obama declared, on the very first day of his ascension to the throne, that his administration would be the "most transparent in history." And if they didn't then, they certainly will now following news that it none other than Obama's own administration - made infamous for spying on everyone who uses electronic communication courtesy of one whistleblower - that it has refused a record number of Freedom of Information (don't laugh) requests on the basis of, drumroll, national security. So between the NSA, whose job is to ensure national security, and all those pesky meddlesome investigators, whose only curiosity is to peek behind the secrecy of the Obama administration, there should be precisely zero acts of terrorism on US soil. Like last year's Boston bombing for example. Oh wait...
“If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?”
