    Isn't it time to just acknowledge that the definition of these "things" needs to be reevaluated?

    Where is there any action that serves as proof which has not been subject to the new, bend-me-over-and-have-your-way definition of "balance"?

    Not mentioned - the fact that they could have squeezed the UI out of the Teahadists outside of these negotiations.

    How transparent does this all have to be for people to wake up?

    Slap happy is a platform.

        beloved overlords' watchpigs might want to take exception to such talk. I recced you anyway; at 70, I probably won't die any faster in prison, and I have friends who will publicize my custodial abuse should it occur. I can afford to be recklessly principled, with very little still left to lose.

        Those of you who have given more hostages to fortune, be careful. The 1% and their political mercenaries are quite serious about taking us all down on any pretext. Enjoying your 40 year "pardon" for being both innocent and naive requires you to survive, and keep your health to boot.

        Enough fossil fuel remains on Earth to warm it 6 degrees C by 2100 AD if it is all used. A +6 C planet will only sustain half a billion humans. Human population will rise to 9 billion by 2050. Any questions?

          It's a fine line to walk. I don't want to censor myself so much as to be paralyzed; nor do I want to take too many risks.

          Thing is, with the law written as it is, they can decide to come for me any time, regardless of what I do or don't do.
