    Funny how for most of the last decade, it was CNN and MSNBC viewers who were afraid of gov't.

    According to the study, the area east of the Barton-McFarland community in zip code 48204 is the most dangerous neighborhood in America.

    The study said the chances of becoming a victim of violent crime in this west side community over the course of a year are one in seven.
    Sharing similar statistics is the Islandview community in the 48207 zip code on the city’s east side, which ranks as the second most dangerous neighborhood on the list.
    Coming in as the third most dangerous neighborhood in the country is the area between Ravendale and LaSalle College Park in zip codes 48213 and 48205.
    The study said the chances of becoming a victim of violent crime in this east side neighborhood are one in eight.

    But your bed is still a greater threat than this neighborhood and even a cop poses just a slightly greater threat.

    Regardless of your political persuasion, you should be wary and afraid of government.

    Actually, that's true. Anyone who was intelligent and sane feared what George W. Bush might say or do next.

    The problem was once GWB was gone, they stopped voicing opposition to the same actions under Bush to which they'd been rightly vocal. Now under Obama, they themselves became the "Bush apologist" for what in effect are Bush policies continued and magnified under Obama's watch. But then the silent mass of the Bush era, those Bush apologists, became a vocal mass of the Obama era. The comedy is watching them criticize Obama when he's projecting Bush policy on the grounds it violates the Constitution but then to equal the comedy are the Obama apologists offering excuses and makes exceptions.

    It's not about principle for either side, it's purely politics and thus with controlled opposition, the state grows. Hoax's point in post #14 being valid.

    Last week in an interview with Alternet, Noam Chomsky had this to say about Obama:

    Noam Chomsky: Obama's Attack on Civil Liberties Has Gone Way Beyond Imagination

    Had Bush done what Obama is doing now, it would be the democrats rushing the gun stores, buying ammo and screaming for blood and yet, listen......hear that?..........yeah me neither.

    Chomsky is also a plantiff along with the likes of Chris Hedges and Daniel Ellsburg in suing the Obama administration over these very issues and where is the traditionally strong civil liberties democrat party? There's that silence again. But then where is the GOP or even the Tea Party who proclaim the Constitution and it's Bill of Rights all but sacred and from the hands of God? Same silence.

    That might be telling to anyone the least capable of any critical thinking.
