    • On May 26, 2011, by nwilson7871 - Ready to be handed over to the Gustapo in Nazi Germany. I am not even suprised anymore to hear that there are people elected by the people that are trying to spy on us and turn us against one another for the sake of the "Homeland", I mean, Das Hinterland! This is an outrage! Did anyone hear that some members of congress are volunteering to give up their congressional power to review and confirm or deny a presidential nomination? Give up power? Sound familiar? Check out www.noagendashow.com, www.shutupslaves.com and www.seanhannity.com for a true news show In The Morning! So long Gitmo Nation West!
