    Didn't I hear the dems (correctly) insisting not so long ago that dissent is the highest form of patriotism?

    I wonder why they act as if it's a crime now. :eusa_whistle:

    Because their guy is in office of course. But they don't so much as think it a crime as an act of racism. Not knowing the difference between racism and dissent is pretty much a common trait of most leftists these days.

    That's true about the racism. But what about encouraging people to inform on their friends and neighbors who express dissenting opinions? That certainly doesn't sound like they think dissent is patriotic now does it?

    Your right. But they were all in full throated uproar when Bush had a little program called TIPS.

    Who is encouraging their friends to report dissent? And is it dissent or fraud that is being ferreted out?

    The current administration. You don't recall the hullaballoo surrounding their spamming operation?

    You mean debunking the fear mongering offered up by lackeys of the insurance industry to derail progress on health care reform?
