    Wow... you are really deflecting here. CDB posed pertinent questions, that counterbalanced your notions.

    Apparently you dont know when to where your tin foil hat. Now if we start a discussion saying how bush personally collapsed the economic system, or remote controlled two planes into the towers, THEN put on your hat.

    As does your name. I'd rather be with the tin foil hat brigade than with those who don't realize their own **** does indeed stink, not to mention someone who mentally vacant enough not to realize what an opening this kind of behavior on the part of the media leaves for ideological hatchet jobs to become more prevalent.

    Don't you remember? Robert Bork declared that the Constitution contains no right to privacy (though I can't make out the point behind the 4th Amendment, absent a presumed right to privacy).

    And the Miranda ruling was only supposed to apply to law-enforcement's dealings w/ suspects, but for many years now, it's been true: whatever you say can and will be taken down and used against you. The internet has been a great boon to this tendency.

    yeah, no real "right" to privacy in terms of your public dealings and filings.

    It's a completely absurd notion, true: but still, there's a well-appreciated slippery slope where the violation of any right is concerned. You can't decry erosion on the 'left' while turning a blind eye to erosion on the 'right' - it makes one worse than a hypocrite.

    It makes one complicit in the destruction of that right - and of all those rights that subsequently come under attack.

    There was no cry of erosion on the left... none what so ever. The man just questioned Obama's tax policy. Is it policy paramount to erosion on the left?
