Privacy Double Standard

If you shot someone by mistake and that someone was seriously injured, would you be more concerned about that person's recovery than anything else? Would you allow joking and speculation about what happened or would you want the true story known? You would if you had nothing to hide.

Mr. Cheney believes that what happened on that ranch in Texas is none of our business, but at the same time he believes that our private phone calls and emails are the bush administration's business.

In the name of national safety our government feels they can justify listening in on our private conversations even though we have done nothing wrong, but apparently they don't believe that we are justified and entitled to know all the facts when the vice president of our country shoots someone.

PoP I agree, the more Cheney digs in his heels and won't talk, the more speculation there will be about what REALLY happened. The longer he balks, the more suspicious I get, and I assume it was much more horrible than we imagine. He must be hiding in one of his secret bunkers. Also, watching TV last night, one of the news shows had on a bunch of attorneys who talked about what possible charges await Cheney if, god forbid, Mr. Whittington should die, like manslaughter, for instance.

I can think of only two reasons for the hiding. Number one, he wouldn't talk to the police for so long....was he waiting for the alcohol to leave his system? Number two, was there someone else at the ranch that he doesn't want the public to know about? LOL, where was Monica last weekend?

If Mr. Whittington should die, Cheney should be treated the same as any other American in the same situation.

What happens at the Armstrong ranch, stays at the Armstrong ranch!

It's pure Republican: shoot a guy in the face and heart and then make jokes about it.
