So you avoid addressing the question, accuse me of an imaginary anti-American rant, then reassert your extreme view with out substantiation. But I'm sure you see me as a dick.
Coz do you know how large the network that Plame ran was? Do you know how many operatives disappeared and how many informants were found dead? And it was all done for political reasons. To discredit a legally elected representative who disagreed with Bush and his plans for illegal war. But no comment about the treasonous acts of Bush's boys. And they swore oaths too.
Daddy Bush Sr passed a law making it illegal to out a spy punishable by death for treason if found guilty. Junior Bush Jr had staff that violated that law. But nothing, nothing but crickets from the hypocrites on the right.
So again tell us, since you seem so sure, what "secrets" did Snowden give to Russians or Chinese?
Innocent before PROVEN guilty. Right?
If you want to assassinate Snowden for what you assume He's done then start your target practicing on the treasonous bastards of the Bush Cabal.

“Everyone says I want to get to heaven in one form or another. Liberals seem to believe it is here on Earth if only the conservatives go away. Conservatives might think it is the striving for mystical perfection, which is never attainable,” Mamet said and then elaborated, “That’s the way it is from the start. That’s the Bible. God says, ‘Here you go. Just don’t hide in the closet.’ So, of course, many of us can’t help but go into the closet, but man is a striving animal. That’s what separates us from the poodles. So, our unquenchable urge to investigate, reform, and reshape everything around us, not only makes the world, but destroys the world. The question is how do we deal with human nature, and that is the ultimate question of drama.”


“I remember as a young man looking at my father, a successful businessman, and thinking, ‘I don’t know anything. How am I going to matriculate into society and become self-reliant?’” Mamet said. “A healthy society helps a young man or woman matriculate. It says, ‘Off you go into something in which you’ll be judged.’ Then, the fear of matriculation is gradually replaced by the physical memory of accomplishment. So, little by little, it gets easier.”

“My understanding of Sex Week is that it is an attempt to get otherwise disinterested students to attend lectures on techniques and sales demonstrations of devices.” After I assured him that he is correct, he asked, “What’s happened when a 19-year-old American male is jaded about sex?”

“Part of the matriculation process for a young man has always been”, Mamet continued, “I don’t know how to make a living, but I better figure it out or I’m never going to get laid. When you take that away, you take away the strongest goad he will ever experience in his life.”

HighDessertDSucker and TVash immediately come to mind as two of the more limp minded posters on this site. Their(lack of)sound logic is shocking. You really believe all of your links and news sources are legit? WTF...wake up dummies!! Such blind arrogance. Both sides of the fence are bought and paid for by the same people. Learn about how the system works. Enable yourselves with critical thought. All of us are responsible to question those CURRENTLY in charge, not whine about what the previous regime did to us. Has anything really changed in the last 6yrs? The 1% has grown in the last 6yrs. You happy about that? Obama not responsible? Of course he is, that's who put him in charge! Take your Adderall and focus on what's going on around you now. YOU are as much as a part of the problem as any 'Republican'

Sorry Philo, forgot to mention your name in the mix. You are feeling left out...wahh. The three of you now complete a circle jerk! Did you get the cookie? For the record I'm a registered Dem. I'm just disappointed that the BS and lies continue with our elected officials...in general the system. I simply said to STFU for a second and listen to all sides. Give the Blind Faith a rest. Have you done Blind Faith?...a mighty fine route. You know, 'rock climbing' not 'circle jerking'. As far as intellectual material goes you clearly have that covered haha. Keep on keeping on. Damn you take yourself seriously. How much time of your bitter life have you wasted posting this nonsense. Are your bed sores inflamed? Seriously woman go back and log all of the time you've wasted posting your non-sense. WTF have you actually done to change anything in our world other than embarrass yourself behind your internet ranting guise. I just like to stir the pot. I'm busy working, helping people in need and climbing when time permits. Sorry...I occasionally make the mistake of reading non-climbing related posts on ST and felt the need to kick you in the c^&^&t. I really wanted to see if you limpers would bite on my last comment. End game...big laughs. Lighten up tool....do SOMETHING else with your life. This is not working for you. That took me 62sec's to punch out. OK, stepping out of your sez pool and washing off...love ya. +100 for Coz...always been a fan

Snorting --> Big lines of peace and reality. Last week it was 4000ft lines of knee deep JH pow-pow. Keep up f-stick, you're getting dropped AGAIN!

Yes..a fan of Coz. A legendary climber. Primo style...much respect. Is this an incorrect statement? Are you feeling inferior again?

OOOOh look, another nearly literate wanna be leg humper. Way to go SpudNut.
Ironically coming on a thread to condemn as "life wasters" those who post to it.
And really what's sadder and more desperate the "life wasters" or having so little life as to be compelled to create multiple anonymous avatars to troll the life wasters?

This Multiple Anonymous Avatar Disorder or M.A.A.D. seems remarkably prevalent among "conservatives".

I think we're unlikely to get much further in changing each others' views on this matter, though, because it's partly a matter of perspective. I see Obama's failure to get cooperation from congressional Republicans as his failure; you see it as their failure. Maybe it goes back to what I used to say, namely it's folly to try to fix the blame for a failure to agree on only one side, because each side will always find the other unreasonable.


What exactly would you have had him do? Obama's resignation was really the Republicans top demand. They turned down 10:1 spending cuts to tax increases. He started more than halfway towards the Republicans on all of his top proposals from healthcare to tax cuts and entitlement reform. He thought that if he proposed a close to the middle agenda that the American people would see that he was a centrist and back him. He was wrong and he let the Republicans paint anything he did as "socialist" and because he wouldn't go hard right with his "compromise" even you see him as "unwilling to negotiate." Boehner can't even negotiate with the Republican party...you really think Obama could?

Look at the republitards putting personal gain over all else again and again...


http://thinkprogress.org/election/2014/03/13/3384641/scam-leadership-pacs/

Four Politicians Using Their ‘Leadership PACs’ As A Personal Expense Account

For years, current and former elected officials have created leadership PACs, political action committees they can use to raise money to help elect like-minded candidates. But with no law preventing politicians from using the funds raised by their leadership PAC for personal use, some operate these committees more as an expense account than a political action committee.
A ThinkProgress review of Federal Election Commission (FEC) PAC data found that four leadership PACs have spent a paltry amount of their funds so far this election cycle on actual political candidates, while vasts amounts went to pay staffers, cover overhead, and cover travel, meals, parking, and even highway tolls.
While the politicians are rarely involved with the day-to-day operations of these leadership PACs (or their own campaign committees), they frequently headline fundraising events
for the committees and they are largely free to spend the raised money as they wish. Donors seeking to earn lawmakers’ gratitude or help boost the politician’s political standing often donate to both their campaign account and their leadership PAC.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, leadership PACs are “considered separate from a politician’s campaign committee, providing donors with a way around individual campaign contribution limits.” They “provide a way for candidates to fund their travel, office expenses, consultants, polling and other non-campaign expenses,” though ostensibly their purpose is to advance the political view points of their owner.
While politicians of both parties have used leadership PACs as legal slush funds, these are four of the worst offenders from 2013.

 Here we are again, showing the twisted republitard for what they truly are - self-minded, self-important and selfish c#&%s, the whole lot of them.
The argument could be made by a certain type of particularly retarded republitard - like a few of the ones here on the taco - "Well, it ain't illegal, so they ain't breaking the law!"

That's my point. The law makers haven't made a law against this activity. To me, this is like asking both the slavemaster and the slave if it should be illegal for some human beings being able to own another human being? The slave would say no (unless this is one of those particular slaves that wanted to grow up and one day own him some slaves too) I assume, and the slavemaster would say yes, of course: The people who benefit from certain activities would never make a rule that says that what they do is not cool, fraudulent, and breaks a certain trust....

But hey, it's not like these creation are getting any of my money, or anything (as far as I know) so why should I give a sh#t?
I guess it's to point out that these republitards show exactly what it means to be a republitard and why I think republitards are wrong about everything
