    ... want, but if you want me or anyone else to believe it, then show some proof. Thanks, though, for the strawman diversion! I didn't realize that the Constitution could be divined using only "feelings."

    I think I'm gonna do a diary tomorrow with all the strawmen I've received over the last month and a half when I've asked people to prove, based on Constitutional law, the Constitution, federal case law or any other binding precedent since the Magna Carta, why the NSA program is any kind of "violation" whatsoever.

    Ignore the baseless allegations if you wish, but I won't.

    I would tip you, but the man took away my tips.

      well, if you look at my history of diary reccing, you'll see my pattern of concern and i am a Verizon customer, and we know they've been handing this stuff over as part of the gov't Constitutionally dubious program.

      so there's your proof of my feeling concerned and violated.

      in short - even if you don't think i have a right to be violated - which is a really dickish thing to do - you do not get to decide how someone feels, period. end of story.

      furthermore - how is stating how someone feels his or herself an accusation in the first place? surely you know what 'accusation' means right?
