Bush administration asks cell phone companies for cell records of customers in order to thwart international terrorists. A company refuses. The Bush administration says..."okay." The ensuing scandal occupies Congressional Democrats for years. An investigative panel is convened spending millions of taxpayer dollars. American media types spend millions of lines of text decrying the abuse of individual civil rights. The next administration proceeds to continue a much more extreme and intrusive version of the same program.
Barack Obama in May of 2016 decreed that public schools in the United States will let boys pee in the girls room. Any schools refusing will be penalized so that poor children are not able to have lunch.
