    What's smaller and what's larger?

    Especially considering that there are larger issues, i.e. the economy, jobs, the war on women, the war on LGBT, the war on immigrants, etc, that need to be addressed.

      appointed herself the sole worthy judge of what is and is not an important concern. Just one of many silencing techniques she is attempting to employ here.

      at once? It's kind of insulting to think we can't multi-task on political issues. In my own household I juggle being a wife, parent, friend, along with meal planning/shopping/cooking, laundry, paying bills, cleaning the house, yard work, etc. So, yes, I can fairly easily think about the war on women, the economy, jobs, AND be appalled by govt surveillance all at the same time. It's not either or.
