    The other day my buddy was all, "I don't care if the government is listening to my phone calls or reading my emails. I just don't care." I wanted to punch him in his little hippy vagina.

    this.

    i'm glad he did it but don't like the way he did it.

    part of me wants to hang him and the other part wants to buy him a beer.

    i'm leaning towards the rope though.

    His oath was to defend the constitution...not people who are violating it

    he can't leave his new home; he is always guarded; he lives every day and night knowing he might have a fatal "accident". think we going to give him a ticket tape parade in downtown NYC anytime soon?

    we elected the ex-head of the cia as president. it is total hypocrisy to vote the lead spy into office and then out all the spies for doing what we elected them to do.

    Snowden just confirmed what we should have already know. Ever since the beginning of cordless phones and e-mail we were told those communications were not private.

    Yup...and, is it not amazing that this fucker has so much info on the surveillance mechanisms of our government?

    I wonder how much of the shit he is releasing was planted by our spooks, for some dubious reason...no way this guy could get all that info...

    i doubt there was a conspiracy. the gubment is so huge, one hand has no clue what the other is doing. everybody thinks somebody else is watching over things.

    i had a secret clearance and i toked everyday.
