Where was it in 1979?

Just reference any of The One's pre-office statements on this kind of thing. It doesn't seem to be such a concern now.

Welcome to politics. Where politicians say what they need to say to get elected, then reality hits when they get in office and they see what's really behind curtain #1.

Re: PrismmmMMMMmmmm, good! NOT!

I for one consider Snowden a hero rather than traitor. He gave up a cushy life, a nice paycheck, and his security to call out our government for abrogating the Constitution. I think we all owe Snowden a debt of gratitude.

Now you're agreeing with Lotus?!? I dunno Rat ... I am really, really getting scared.

Let's have a prayer circle where we discuss the competing ethical considerations of Mr. Snowden's actions. You in?

Re: PrismmmMMMMmmmm, good! NOT!

Make it a drum circle and I may turn up.

I'm confident that even the most irascible of forum opponents can occasionally find common ground. It's making me question my mental state, I have to say. Bad enough I agree with you, heinous that Lotus and I are holding the same position. Next SS will appear rational or likeable.

We typically can't even agree on how to be fans of the same team.

Solar flare?

With apologies to Rush, the day is coming when Congress shall pass a noble law and all will be kept equal by hatchet, axe, and saw.
Outstanding song reference JR.

He's clearly guilty, with mitigating circumstances.

He'll be sentenced to be lightly killed.

I think it's more a case of

I think national-level politicians know exactly what positions they're going to take when they get in office. It's just a matter of what the public will let them get away with.

edit: And like you said, they say what they think they need to get into office. Even if they're going to do the same thing when they get in.

When Vladimir Putin is defending America for its spying on its citizens, I think it's high time we start rethinking the direction our country is heading.
