    there's a lot of noise and outrage coming from the left on this and Germany does have a strong left bent to some of it's parties.

    I'm sure those parties are outraged (they're also hypocrites but that's another matter) and I'm sure they'd love to have Snowden come over.

    •  So left leaning parties aren't what floats... (8+ / 0-)

      your boat?  Maybe you belong in a more authoritarian place?  Please elaborate on the 'hypocrisy'.

      •  you've said some very silly things before (0+ / 0-)

        but this might be some of the silliest.

        Left as in what? And you don't think 'the left' can not have an authoritarian aspect to it? Gods you must think you're as pure as the driven snow.

        You write a question worth answering and I will.

          the left-leaning parties are hypocritical, please elaborate.

            Though really Germany in general is hypocritical about this given that they themselves have engaged in as much if not more than what the NSA is doing.

            You going to admit 'the left' can be authoritarian or do I have to embarrass you on that one?
