  •  With this diary you are lampooning another... (4+ / 0-)

    ...that was precisely about targeting cellphone users with missiles.  You are making fun of that notion, dismissing its import.  Take responsibility for your choices.  Don't weasel away from their consequences.

    •  No, I am making fun of someone posting Breaking (3+ / 0-)

      when it isn't even close.

      I am making fun of the fact that YOU, the person that posted that diary, the people that have been spamming multiple similar diaries have your heads so far up your posteriors that you can't recognize that people agree that the NSA has gone to far but that you treat them as enemies because you can't stop insulting them with hyperbole or when they point out that it is hyperbole simply insult them.  

      You arguments are fatally flawed, to the point where you are doing your cause (and mine as well) irreparable harm.  The incredibly sad thing is that if I hadn't labeled this as snark, a good many people would not have been able to tell the difference.   These diaries don't need parodies because they already are.  And when people try to explain that, they are lumped into the enemies bucket.

      That at the rate it is going, there are going to be a lot of people banned.  Not because the Admins disagree that the NSA's activities need to be severely curtailed but because you are driving people away and turning them against you.  That you can't understand that there are multiple priorities on this site and that tearing down potential allies will only leave you alone and your cause will die and it will be YOUR FAULT!

      A person's character is measured by how they treat everyone. Not just your pet group.

        from the title. I thought it would be about the USPS, though.

        Of course, if there's a Democratic President, the right wing repeats what you wrote up there as a super serious chain letter.
