Thats cute did you bother to read the 20 pages of us explaining why he is wrong? Probably not but please let us know if you need help down off your cross.

Just say you don't care about the spying and backstabbing by the NSA and I'll stop. Oh, and try not to use the age card while you do it.

I think you are misunderstanding what I said.

Or are you intentionally mischaracterizing it? Consider

It's not a matter of legality, it's a matter of how wrong and insane it is. Just because it is legal doesn't mean it should be done.

RE: Snowden Situation
I did and saw nothing convincing. Mainly nitpicking about what is "legal" rather than what is right. A lot of throwing up our hands at the futility of trying to change things. Pathetic

I have asked on more than one occasion how he would keep the country safe while having his vastly over imagined freedom and the response has always been nothing which is not convincing. If he has any alternative then maybe we would be less pedantic about his misunderstanding if the word legal.

You guys are impossible. If you want to be apologetic toward this tyrannical, overstepping government that does things even when they know it is wrong and then keeps it secret, only to lie about it when it comes out from an innocent whistleblower, then there is no hope for you. I am done posting on here.

Once again, mischaracterization. Please quote where I was apologetic of this.

You can't. Drinking Beverage

RE: Snowden Situation
Chas you're right again. No apologies just cowardly apathy. I guess Ben Franklin was right-we deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Apathy? Fuck you.

Cowardly apathy? Fuck off and die.


Apology accepted. Thank you.
