I happen to believe in Snowden and his cause. AND I am outraged that the United States of America is the bad guy in the particularly Orwellian example to the world.
I wanted, wished, prayed for, and was actually promised, an honest administration if Obi got elected and that I could finally, after 8 years of garbage lot toxic waste ground poisonous lies and total lack of honesty when dumbya was in MY/YOUR/OUR Whitehouse, that I could expect to no longer needing to be embarrassed by the US prez.... Well, now there is this. It's despicable. And you KNOW that if our government gets ahold of him we will NEVER hear what was done to him, or is being done, well, HELL! he COULD never be heard from again. As in "DISAPPEARED", otherwise known as "rendition". Whether you agree with my position on this issue is not the point. It's the position of my government and the awful and blatant and open assault on civil rights that should pretty well put us all in the same ballpark.
So there is this, for your consideration.
Come on in, the water's fine and we are all loving the main premise of this site, calling for trials at The Hague for dumbya and his evil cronies. I'd likely be in support of a ban on chocolate on Sundays if it would also include some accounting for the filth THAT bunch wreaked upon us and THE WHOLE WORLD.

Worth Honorable Mention in this post is a total bow and applause to Mr. Glenn Greenwald who's been faithfully and accurately doccumenting the US descent into the "dark side" (as so elequantly called by Dick (dick) Cheney). I think Mr. Greenwald is quite perturbed at documenting all the great shitloads of lawlessness put forth by BushCo and totally pointing out, day by day the lawlessness of those bastard. Did I mention that Greenwald is a Constitutional Law attorney and expert in his field. I think he just had had enough of the secret no one gets to know crap coming out of the White House and no one from there EVER gets a highly earned Go To Jail card by dems as well as thugs, and he just got to a point where he felt the need to roll up his sleeves and pound one home, clear shot to the Cyclops eye, and he doesn't mind a little or a lot of cyborg juice on his fist! They pushed him too far and now lookit what he's going through!!
Worth a perusal as well. If you're not informed and familiar with Mr. Greenwalds writing, his entire history and articles can be found here, and here. He is amazing and his articles are as easy to read as they are honest, no holds barred, simple and great for the layman to easily understand. I find myself THROWING dead ringers from my basket of socks that I use to throw at the TV when I'm watching CSpan. A physical outlet for blind rage.
And sweet dreams of a government as put forth by our forefathers. (It's dwindling.)
