  •  I heard today that the reason Snowden (4+ / 0-)

    did this was because he didn't get the raise he was expecting. It this a legitimate story? Who is to say? Me? You?

    So America is becoming a totalitarianism country? I need to pay more attention to my freedoms being taken away evidently.

    Greenwald tweeted a question along the lines of - what is the difference between Ellsberg & Snowden.

    His answer: 58,000 dead Americans.

    •  yes, apparently you do (2+ / 0-)

      "need to pay more attention to my freedoms being taken away".  It would seem that you don't even know which one's are already missing.  Go buy a couple hits of LSD . . . a little "consciousness expanding" might be good for you . . .

      •  I don't need any LSD (0+ / 0-)

        I just need this story to play out with some GD facts and not assumptions.

        Snowden stole classified information and is now on the run. I find that tragic.

        •  Oh yes you do . . . (3+ / 0-)

          or at least you need to try to exercise your "freedom" to buy some . . . that might "open your eyes", even if it doesn't "enlighten" you.

          Oh, and wait until you see the list of contractors working on this project, the capability of the hardware, and how much it is costing.  All "classified information", of course, so it might be a long wait . . . but hey, you don't care about freedom of information any more than you actually care about any other freedom, do you . . .

          •  I'll write to you when I'm locked up okay? (0+ / 0-)

            Because to listen to you, one would think the government is coming to get me. And you. And our kids. And grandkids.

            I don't know about you, but I'm going to work tomorrow; probably taking in a baseball game this weekend; will watch the Stanley Cup as I plan my summer vacation.

            Same things I've been doing my entire life in this here America.

            Yet according to you, I should be paranoid and just sit by and wait ... even though I haven't done anything wrong.

            Well, no thank you, it's summertime and I intend to enjoy it without the paranoia.

            I always thought that was the tea party's department. I've no time nor am I inclined to think like you.

            I know freedom when I see it and I have my freedom to basically do anything I enjoy on any given day.

            From going about my daily life, I see everybody else doing it too.

          •  How much its costing? Really? (0+ / 0-)

            THATS what we're down to?  Waste of tax-payer dollars?  What are we all Thomas Drake now?

            We went from Stasi-style oppressive fascism to this is wasting money and hardware and contractors.

            Oh well fuck it... Im sleeping with the light on now.  

            OH NOEZ!  OMG!!!!!
