    this is defending illegal activity. 45 recs to the tip jar! Fortunately not very many Rethugs read this; they'd have a field day.

      has made a high art out of defending illegal activity. And not just some minor credit card mischief but the largest frauds in human history.  

      Perspective please.

      Advisors for President-Elect Barack Obama feared the new administration would face a coup if it prosecuted Bush-era war crimes, according to a new report out this morning.

      •  You have an odd definition of perspective (0+ / 0-)

        It seems to mean being OK with other crimes.  

        But nobody's buying flowers from the flower lady.

          about some of Anonymous' mischief, but relative to massive systemic fraud and its enablement through the corruption of the American political process it's at most a minor concern.

          All other financial/property crimes combined pale into insignificance relative to those systemic crimes normalized within the status quo meticulously built by the banksters. Our outrage should be informed into some semblance of proportionality just as a nod to reality.

          Yes, perspective.

    •  So is defending an OWS encampment... (0+ / 0-)

      ...Or advocating the use of medical marijuana anywhere within the US, its territories and posessions, or by a US citizen anywhere in the world.  

      It isn't, however, incitement to criminal activity, which is, I think, the important part that the powers that be would object to.
