    Man, I just found out that Obama might have to give up his blackberry.

    Obama to lose his BlackBerry? | IT PRO

    Imagine the nightmare of at least four years without his BB fix?!!

    I really feel for the anxiety he must be feeling now at the prospect. I wouldn't blame him if he blows the next election on purpose just to get his BB back! I mean 8 years?

    I think we should start a campaign/petition or something...

    Poor guy.

    Classic that his wife told him to put his BB away when he was supposed to be watching his daughter's football match!

    Aside from the fact that there are now at least a half dozen
    threads on this subject (all equally ridiculous) I doubt highly
    that this all that much of a concern to the President-Elect.

    Let's weigh the options:
    President of the United States of America and no BB or junior
    Senator from Illinois with one. Seems like an easy call to me.

    I guess it's an easy call at that. But I personally really wouldn't like to be allowed no form of communication unless it was handed me by a G-man on official headed paper.

    Call me paranoid. I'd think they were all keeping something from me...

    Don't let the sob stories that he has to get rid of his BB fool you. He could choose to keep it. He chooses not to keep it just for the sake of national security. He understands the implications of the most powerful man of the free world having a BB or cell phone. I'll get off my soapbox now. (And no I did not vote for him)

    Accually I don't think he can choose much of anything in that mannor. Remember the President is subject to Congress and the House of Represenatives.
    A 2/3 vote in Congress over rides the President.
    And he can be "Kicked out" of office.

    Its his choice....george bush has not emailed for 8 years and that was his choice don't think congress dictates to him. The president can do what he wants....congress only passes laws not dictates what the pres can do... Study up.

    Actually I think the thing is this.. I don't think they want just anyone keeping in touch with people like the president, etc. Because they'll be monitoring everything.

    And besides not feeling sorry dems have majority so do you think they will impeach their own party?? NO!! So do homework before you say he will be impeached if he uses a BB. Welcome to a dem controlled nation. Hope you enjoy your 70% tax rate because that's what's its climbing too. Free health care with no tax increase??? So foolish. Income redistrabution?? Can you say socialist boardering on marxism?? Have fun I pay no taxes I'm a disabled veteran so I don't care what happens but I do know what's right and wrong. I'm not dissallusioned by the media. I'm off my soap box again.

    ^^How about just throwing the soap box away. Or at least
    recognize this is not the thread for political rants. Plenty of that
    foolishness over in Off-Topic.

    Ok I'll throw my soap box away....I did not start this thread only state an idea like you did before me. But fine I'll shut up; what do I know about freedom of speech or basic rights?? I have only fought in two different wars for america, almost dying in one of them. I guess I'm just mindless and have no clue. You win I won't post for a week....happy??? No posts...no soap box.... Just me submitting and being quiet. I could go on and get my posting rights suspended but I'm a man of my word and will do what I say. I won't even post in off topic discussion. Just remember when you tell people to shut up someone gave you that right and someone also died for you to have that right.

    1) Go back to my original post and show me where I said "shut up" Yeah, that's
    what I thought you can't because I did not. I simply pointed out that political
    ranting was NOT the point of this thread and there were more appropriate ones
    for you to do so.

    2) Despite your over-glorification of your service, you did not actually protect
    or defend my or anyone else's freedom for anything. But if it strokes your ego to believe that,
    knock yourself out.

    3) You would have so much more credibility if you were not a Conservative,
    Talk Radio echo chamber.

    4) Post or don't post. I personally could not care less. The fact remains that
    the OP probably did not intend this thread to be a platform for your
    opposition, unfocused, totally delusional and purely partisan diatribe.
    Let it be and let this thread do what it was meant to do.

    AG...While I agree that the political debate was not appropriate in this thread, I don't believe it is appropriate to make light of someones service to this country. They are out there protecting our rights and liberties and allowing us the privilage of debating our conflicting opinions. And on that note I will move on back to the wonderful show that is the Storm release debates..lol.

    Ok this is off topic and someone needs to take a poll on this. If anyone can't post on subject and in relation to the topic then they should not post.
    Almost half the threads get way off subject, it is terrible for someone who just wants other peoples opinion on a particular subject.

    I don't think we need to feel sorry for him. Is it unreasonable to think that the President will have a staff of people with BB access ... he can borrow one. LOL

    It's "disillusioned," and anyone in a 70 percent tax bracket is in serious need of a better CPA.

    The last military conflict which cemented our "rights and liberties" was probably the War of 1812.
