  •  Could've fooled me (0+ / 0-)

    Your relentless commentary in diaries like the one we're in now certainly gives the impression your out to convince somebody.

    So when you asked me above to provide you with examples of abuses, that was just for amusement. Got it.

    That's why I don't take you seriously, because, as you admit, it's just fun and games to you.

    In other words, a waste of my time. As I suspected.

    And I really don't know what your whole "stop caring what other people think of me" trip is all about.

    •  Ah, young grasshopper, you are confused (0+ / 0-)

      Forgive me, Young Master of the Internets, I forgot with whom I was speaking.  I will speak more plainly for you.

      I said I am not here to convince anyone.  That is absolutely true.  I never said, however, that I wasn't here to expose anyone for my amusement.  And you, my dear young apprentice, expose yourself quite nicely with every one of your posts.  Dance, my little puppet -- dance!  Dance on my strings!

      Be happy, my friend, for in your own sad, confused way, you are helping my work.  Embrace it -- for it may be your lot in life.  Be well.  Peace out.

      •  So you just admitted to purposeful and intentional (0+ / 0-)

        trolling, then. That's how comes across, at least, snark or no snark.

        "Helping your work..." What work, exactly, would that be?

        Since I'm too dumb to figure it out myself, of course.

          My goal is the same as always.  To share whatever thoughts I may have on whatever the topic is in whatever diary I'm posting my comments.  What you or anyone else does with my brilliance is entirely up to you.  If it exposes the irrational, impenetrable, anti-Obama agendas of many here, well, that amuses me and may provide a service, if anyone is inclined to view it that way.

          Now, are you EVER going to discuss the topic of this thread?  Obama asked for reforms before anyone ever heard of Snowden. He is now meeting with Congressional leaders on that very issue.  Oh, and while everyone's concerns about the potential for possible abuses still exists, the bipartisan intelligence committees acknowledge that there is no domestic spying program.

          Any thoughts on this topic, or will you continue to prove my point and assist my good work again?
