Obama's Snitch-Line Shut Down

It seemed like a good idea to Barack Obama at the time. If people are talking bad about you and your programs, why not start tracking their conversation. And since you've already spent billions on failed bailouts and federal favors why not try to gather the info for free by asking your faithful Obots to snitch on their neighbors for free.

As explained by the White House blog:

“There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.”
The plan: seek out those who oppose the administration's views and report them to big brother. Unfortunately for Obama, his grand plan to collect emails from those pesky people protesting his program hit a snag -- the constitutional right to privacy. So after intense Internet outrage the White House decided to shut down the email address, leaving lovers of free speech wondering what will be the next move by the insatiably power hungry left.

    This is a great site that you have here. It's important that you have a site that focuses on both sides, so keep up the good work. I have a site myself where people can voice their opinion and debate on some of the most controversial topics out there today.

    Anyway, good work and maybe we can do a link exchange or something.
