    •  well the argument he's making is ridiculous (0+ / 0-)

      if you're trying to pin the blame on me.  He said the Patriot Act etc. was the fall of the American republic (hyperbole much?), and that was passed when I was in high school.  What was I supposed to do to prevent it?

        you say "you're trying to pin the blame on me". I just linked the piece as an example of a starkly contrasting opinion to what you said. I wasn't endorsing it. I think it makes for an interesting discussion, that's all.

          I use "you" improperly like that a lot.
