  1. When the Supreme Court ruled LEO's could lie to suspects with impunity, it's only a step away from we can lie to everyone at anytime, including the courts.

  3. Fuck Gowdy-loudmouth bullshit artist. His mantle has been picked up by Jim Jordan.

  4. Klinesmith should have his home address and phone numbers made public. He needs to live the rest of his life in fear of some vindictive wingnuts coming after him, if he stays in the United States. He needs to be shunned and shamed by his neighbors and coworkers. He needs to have his law license suspended and have to learn a different profession (like flipping burgers). He is not the type of person we want as a US citizen.
