    I am part of the 99% and Lamar Smith has no idea of my feelings on waterboarding. It IS!! torture and knowing that our country has stooped so low as to use such a technique… I am ashamed of our governments behavior and I do hope and pray that Bush and Cheny are cahrged and convicted of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

    I’m having a hard time trying to figure out why the Republicans are so concerned with the immunity provision for the Telecom companies in the FISA bill. The fact that this administration has been spying on Americans illegally is known by a majority of us, so stop with the false fear tactics. The part I don’t understand is that your term is up this year isn’t it, so you don’t need the donations from these companies, do you?

    JUDICIAL INJUSTICES BEING INFLICTED ON POORER AMERICANS NEEDS….C*H*A*N*G*E…..

    SENATOR OBAMA, PLEASE LET THE AMERICAN VOTERS AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY KNOW YOUR FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS ABOUT A NEEDED FUTURE REPAIR AND RENOVATION OF A BROKEN US JUDICIAL SYSTEM THAT CONTINUES TO ALLOW THE EXECUTION’S OF EVEN POSSIBLE INNOCENT AMERICAN’S LIKE TROY DAVIS OF GEORGIA ?

    BEING THE WEALTHIEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD SENATOR OBAMA, DON’T WE NEED AS THE LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD TO BEGIN ONCE AGAIN TO RE-INVEST THE PROPER MONIE$ IN OUR OWN US JUDICIAL SYSTEM, ASSURING ALL OF OUR CITIZENS THEIR RIGHTS TO FAIR TRIALS WITH PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION ???

    DOES GOD NEED TO LOBBY OUR US CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD ON BEHALF OF OUR poorer american’s SENATOR OBAMA,OR ARE YOU WATCHING OUT FOR THEM ?? ***OUR US CONGRESS CONTINUES TO DENY MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICANS PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION EVEN THOUGH WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS & FALSE INCARCERATIONS CONTINUE ALL ACROSS AMERICA ???

    • 700 BILLION $$$ AVAILABLE FOR US BAILOUT, & NO $$$ FOR ALL POORER AMERICANS PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION ?
      SENATOR OBAMA, THIS JUDICIAL INJUSTICE HAS BECOME AN AMERICAN ART FORM, AND NO LONGER CAN BE KEPT HIDDEN OR SECRET FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE EVEN IF CERTAIN (501c3) U$ RELIGIOU$ LEADER$ HAVE BEEN $ILENCED ??

    LETS ALL HOPE OUR MEDIA FRIENDS CONTINUE TO SHOW AN INTEREST IN REPORTING ON THIS AMERICAN HORROR FACING THESE (TENS OF THOUSANDS) FORGOTTEN AND TRAPPED POORER AMERICANS, AND HOW THIS PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER HANDLES THIS VERY SERIOUS ISSUE FACING AMERICA’S LATINO AND BLACK AMERICAN COMMUNITIES ????

    WITH 80% OF THE BLACK AMERICAN VOTERS SAYING THEY SUPPORT SENATOR OBAMA IN THIS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, IT IS ONLY FAIR FOR EVERYONE TO KNOW PRIOR BEING ELECTED OUR NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HOW THIS DEMOCRATIC SENATOR TRULY FEELS ABOUT THIS AMERICAN JUDICIAL INJUSTICE CONTINUING TO INFLICT GRAVE HARM ON THE BLACK & LATINO AMERICAN FAMILIES AND THEIR COMMUNITIES NATIONWIDE ??

    • WHEN GOD’S FACE BECAME VERY RED * THE US SUPREME COURT GAVE ENEMY COMBATANTS FEDERAL APPEAL HC RIGHTS LAWYERS AND PROPER ACCESS TO US FEDERAL COURTS,AND POORER AMERICANS (MANY EVEN ON DEATH ROW) ARE DENIED PROPER FEDERAL APPEAL LEGAL REPRESENTATION TO OUR US FEDERAL COURTS OF APPEAL, AND ROTTING IN AMERICAN PRISONS NATIONWIDE ?????
    • INNOCENT AMERICANS ARE DENIED REAL HC RIGHTS WITH THEIR FEDERAL APPEALS ! THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE $LOWLY FINDING OUT HOW EA$Y IT I$ FOR MIDDLE CLA$$ AND WORKING POOR AMERICAN$ TO FALL VICTIM TO OUR U$ MONETARY JUDICIAL $Y$TEM.

    WHEN THE US INNOCENT WERE ABANDONED BY THE GUILTY **** The prison experts have reported that there are 100,000 innocent Americans currently being falsely imprisoned along with the 2,300,000 total US prison population nationwide.

    WHERE ARE AMERICA’S RELIGIOUS LEADERS ???
    Since our US Congress has never afforded poor prison inmates federal appeal legal counsel for their federal retrials,they have effectively closed the doors on these tens of thousands of innocent citizens ever being capable of possibly exonerating themselves to regain their freedom through being granted new retrials.

    This same exact unjust situation was happening in our Southern States when poor and mostly uneducated Black Americans were being falsely imprisoned for endless decades without the needed educational skills to properly submit their own written federal trial appeals.

    This devious and deceptive judicial process of making our poor and innocent prison inmates formulate and write their own federal appeal legal cases for possible retrials on their state criminal cases,is still in effect today even though everyone in our US judicial system knows that without proper legal representation, these tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates will be denied their rightful opportunities of ever being granted new trials from our federal appeal judges!!

    Sadly, the true US legal Federal Appeal situation that occurs when any of our uneducated American prison inmates are forced to attempt to submit their own written Federal Appeals (from our prisons nationwide) without the assistance of proper legal counsel, is that they all are in reality being denied their legitimate rights for Habeas Corpus with our US FEDERAL COURTS and will win any future Supreme Court Case concerning this injustice!

    For our judicial system and our US Congressional Leaders Of The Free World to continue to pretend that this is a real and fair opportunity for our American Middle Class and Working Poor Citizens, only delays the very needed future change of Federal Financing of all these Federal appeals becoming a normal formula of Our American judicial system.

    It was not so very long ago that Public Defenders became a Reality in this country.Prior that legal reality taking place, their were also some who thought giving anyone charged with a crime a free lawyer was a waste of taxpayers $$.

    This FACADE and HORROR of our Federal Appeal proce$$ is not worthy of the Greatest Country In The World! ***GREAT SOCIETIES THAT DO NOT PROTECT EVEN THEIR INNOCENT, BECOME THE GUILTY !

    A MUST READ ABOUT AMERICAN INJUSTICE:
    1) YAHOO 2) GOOGLE MANNY GONZALES THE KID THAT EVERYONE FORGOT IN THE CA PRISON SYSTEM.

    • A JUDICIAL RIDE OF ONES LIFE !

    Someone please tell our US Congress that the GED degree that Manny Gonzales acquired in prison is not a LAW DEGREE !!!!!!

    Give H.R. 2306 Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011 a hearing! Stop fighting the people and start representing them!

  • FreeRoamer 07/04/2011 12:40am

    Agreed with srnicol…let H.R. 2306 receive a hearing. The elected representatives of the people collectively are supposed to determine the laws…not your personal opinion. This is not a dictatorship.

    Thank You

  • politicaltech 07/11/2011 10:47am

    Please schedule a hearing for H.R. 2306 for the sake of our beloved nation. The bill does not legalize anything, yet leaves the matter up to the states just as the founding father’s would have wanted. It was made illegal on the federal level out of ignorance and racism, please consider. Please consider the potential of Doctors prescribing medical marijuana instead of addicting patients to synthetic opiates and morphine. Please be rational.

    Seriously you think its rite to censor the net. Are you INSANE?! If anything we need to start making laws against suing a 15 year old $2500 for downloading a movie that’s maybe worth $20, and by the looks of the OTHER things you support YOU need to be sent to jail your self!

  • Sefer 11/17/2011 6:45pm

    So your who to blame for the censorship bill. Btw, they got your title wrong, your not a Republican, your a Communist. Stop trying to turn America into some foreign dictatorship that uses censorship to stop the masses! And if SOPA passes two possible things may happen. 1. A boycott of all those who have supported this stupid thing (I will personally bring this idea up to americancensorship.org) 2. The internet will rage at you guys. And I mean all of the internet, not just /b/. —Refering to what happened to the last person to piss off /b/ (Jessi Slaughter).

    In short, you dun goofed.

    -Take note that #2 is only speculation, but I see talk all over the place indicating that if SOPA passes it would be like world war 3 with the internet and hackers and crazy stuff like that.

  • RaS 11/18/2011 12:40am

    Sir, Shame on you. You sponsor a bill to assault the first amendment and destroy jobs on the internet and yet you have the Gaul to think your a conservative. You are not a conservative. Your a Socialist in the guise of a conservative.

  • Connie01 11/19/2011 12:00am

    I oppose the Stop Online Piracy Act (Protect IP Act) as do many others, don’t think you’re going to get away with censoring the internet, that’s where I get my news, the TV news is censored enough. Believe me when I tell you we will revolt and give the people what they want, you’re working for us. Do your job.

  • GamerLEN 12/20/2011 4:23pm

    You’re a fool and the lapdog of Hollywood. I hope you enjoy watching your political career go down in flames Smith. You’ve got the entirety of the internet community against you now and we do not forgive easy.

    Lamar Smith is a scumbag and painfully obvious bribed and corrupted politician. This guy has no values or ethics whatsoever, he was bribed by the music/movie industry to introduce the internet censorship bill, along with the internet spy bill PCIP. What’s disgusting about PCIP is that it was carefully designed so that no one would dare vote against this bill or look like they are for and not against child pornography. But within this bill is a section to retain user data on the internet for, what was it, 16 months? Disgusting.

    Lamar Smith you are a disgusting, bribed, corrupt politician.

    Dear Lamar: I created this account just to push down your rating. You sponsor some of the most ill advised bills ever. I hope you don’t get reelected.

  • Rep. Smith is holding a hearing on 3/21/12 regarding REAL ID, the unconstitutional federal driver license law (Article 1 Section 8 does not give Congress authority for state-issued licenses, and the 10th Amendment reserves this function to the States, or to the people). Please sign this petition asking Congress to defund and repeal REAL ID. REAL ID has cost the taxpayer millions and has not prevented one terror plot or identified one illegal alien.
