    rape charges that prevented your "liberal as they come" mind from taking HIM seriously.




    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

    •  No. Assange has nothing to do with Snowden. (7+ / 0-)

      Two different situations.  The only thing that the two have in common is there are idiots out there like you who want to tack "hero" on to both of them.

      They are not heros.

      One is an accused rapist, the other stole top secret information that could impact our national security.

      "Liberal as they come" does not include accepting either of these people as heros.  They are anything but.

      In the time it took Adam Lanza to reload, eleven children escaped. What if...

        for doing something I did not do.

        And your overall reaction to a comment that merely pointed out your consistency is rather telling, though hardly surprising, I must say.

        and even if we did... what the hell business is it of yours to judge whose values we appreciate? Your judgment is seriously lacking.

        Character assassination is old school. We're getting sick of it, so you need to find a better angle of attacking those who give a damn about constitutional protections and the mores and values of democratic nations.


        A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit.
