On National Freedom of Information Day, the White House exempted itself from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).People have used FOIA to keep tabs on the inner workings of the White House administration.Guess we won't have that access anymore.And Obamawants to run "the most transparent administration in history"?Can you taste the irony?
Let me tell it to you like this: I pay taxes. I have every right as a tax-paying citizen to know exactly what they are spending my money on. Hiding things like this should be deemed illegal to every taxpayer in this country. We have a right to know.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t they work for us? Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be. We pay their salaries, therefore, we are supposed to be the boss. Tell me a boss that isn’t privy to what his employees do. I think we have a right to know what our employees are doing.
Naturally, I understand national security to a certain level. But national security is not the issue here. It's become a cover up of wrongdoing.
This stinks to me. It shows me they have something to cover up. If they didn't, they wouldn’t care so damn much about it.
I would like to ask you, vigilant viewers: do we really live in a democracy or do we really live in a two-party dictatorship?
