  •  This issue polarizes the right and the left inside (4+ / 0-)

    I find myself agreeing with Ron Paul type libertarians and some here find themselves agreeing with Dick Cheney, Michael Hayden and other monsters.

    Then again the Ron Paul types did hang out at OWS where I met some of them.  Like a stopped clock these guys are right twice a day or as someone pointed out, like a clock that runs backwards they are right four times a day and the rest of the time they are crazy.

    But it is disheartening the amount of support the NSA gets in these pages.

    Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.

      But I doubt even the Liberals of Phil Ochs' time would have been ok with this level of NSA snooping. It seems Establishment Liberals have "evolved"... into Reaganites.

      •  I like his description of liberals (0+ / 0-)

        "There are a number of shades of American opinion; the shadiest of these is the liberal--an outspoken individual on many issues, ten degrees to the left of center in good times, ten degrees to the right of center if it affects him personally . . ."

        And God said, "Let there be light"; and with a Big Bang, there was light. And God said "Ow! Ow My eyes!" and in a flash God separated light from darkness. "Whew! Now that's better. Now where was I. Oh yea . . ."
