“Forget Snowden. He'll be dead as soon as the CIA can get their hands on him.
Right now....think about it...your every key stroke and mouse click is being tracked. How do you feel about that? Do you trust the secret services to deal with your information justly? --When it's been proven time and again that your gov't does NOT have your best interests at heart?”

“How boring for the people that have to monitor my life! I have nothing to hide as I am sure most of America has nothing to hide. It is the world we live in and I feel a little safer knowing people are looking out for our safety! What do you have to hide?”

“Law-abiding patriots need not fear the NSA or IRO. Remember, we are still a country at war and we must keep a close ear (and eye) on our enemy and those that pretend to be our friends.”
“This is NOT about Snowden. He's a dead man if he ever sticks his head out from behind whatever he's hiding behind.
The issue at hand is this corrupt government and what it is doing to America as well as the rest of the world.”

“In a nation of laws one would think bribing lawmakers ought to be illegal don'tcha think? They are the ones that are criminals and ought to be held in indefinite detention. Instead they go after a penniless powerless hungry human being trying to feed himself and family. Seems like we could find a little compassion here somewhere.”

“Because some one murders does that mean we should not go after one who steals? They are independent and unrelated events.
So you are ok if I move into your house. I'm trying to obtain a better life. I move into your house uninvited and without authorization. I live in your house. I contribute and I obey the laws. I bring my family and we occupy a room or two of your house. Are you OK with that? Are you compassionate enough to not pursue my illegal occupation of your house?
Simply wanting to be here is insufficient reason to break the law and policies of the country. Simply wanting to obtain a better life, while understandable, does not give one license to do whatever one chooses to accomplish that. There are 12 million illegal aliens in this country. They should be free to pursue feeding themselves and their families in their country of origin. If anyone was to be compassionate would it not be their government? Why must the US be "compassionate" when their own country is not?”
“Gosh I feel so much better after Rush cleard it all up in just a few sentences! WhEW! All them there scintists with their PhD's have been reading the wrong text books! They should have ben reading and listening to Rush + FauxSnooze!”
“Thank You Rep. Herrera for speaking out! I live in Vancouver, not far from your office and appreciate your moderate tone. However, I am mystified as to why you disapprove of the ACA! It is flawed to be sure and needs to be improved, but anything has got to be an improvement over the previous system of runaway unchecked profiteering in healthcare.
Blessings on you and your new child! :)”

“I'm a Democrat and feel Democrats have been financially flagrant with Social Issues. They have had to divert a lot of education money into social reorientation while scrapping scholastic advancement.”
“Who says society is falling apart? We are waking up to the myriad cases of injustice being perpetrated in the name of religion.
You speak of the sanctity of human life and the evil of its destruction, are you against laws restricting firearm ownership? Are you as rabidly against nuclear proliferation as abortion? One 50 megaton nuclear ignition over Manhattan would cause about 2 million or so abortions in about 2/3 of a second.”

“I do not own a firearm and would not have one in my home and have no problem with background checks and registration of guns. However, I do believe that anyone who thinks passing a law will magically cause all the firearms to suddenly disappear is living in a fantasy world because no matter what laws they pass a person who wants to get a gun will be able to buy one on the black market. As far as war is concerned, I am an Orthodox Christian, unlike Catholics and Protestants, we do not believe in just war. War is always evil. Sometimes it is a lesser evil than allowing a mad man like Hitler to conquer Europe and build death camps that killed 6 million Jews. However, even in such a war, an Orthodox soldier who kills, even in combat, is placed under penance and may not receive Holy Communion until they have been to Confession.”
“Westboro people are citing quotes from the Christian bible to support their argument against gay sexuality and marriage. As a result Westboro people have become the most disliked group in the country if not the world. But here's the problem folks...it states very clearly in the bible that God is plannin on some pretty serious butt kickin on gay folks. Not just sure why, but that is what it says in unambiguous terms.
Time, me thinks, to start questioning the veracity of this document "The Bible".”

“It also says he's planning on some serious butt kicking of shellfish eaters. It's an old book of health codes, semi-accurate genealogy, woefully inaccurate history, and contains plenty of fodder for ethical debate, and even a few good ideas. But treating every word of it as true for all time is lunacy.”

“That's why many of us ignore the Fictional Books being quoted as being as meaningful in Law or our decisions as the words of Zeus or Dionysus. This people don't understand that no one cares about their scripture and it has no place in American Laws.”
“There is virtually no dividing line between BIG MONEY...be they banks or corporations...and our elected officials. They don''t even bother trying to hide their corruption any longer. Just business as usual...another day at the country club.”
“Couldn't agree more! Fire the bums! Lets let the "Invisible Hand of the Market" run the show. Just think of the profit potential...billions of people buying gas masks so they can breathe, radiation suits so they don't fry, BOATS as the oceans rise 40 feet or so....DOLLARS BABY DOLLARS!!”

“One can only wish we had a Democratic Party as fired up as the other side of the aisle. Instead we hear barely a squeak coming from those I support with my votes. And those I do support is mainly due to a lack of a better option. If there were a party that put the betterment of the whole of society as their platform they would definately have my support and I think/hope the support of many others.
We need to hear John F Kennedy again, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."”
“What we have here is a governmental/political crisis. President Obama is not going to back down - hopefully not anyway! And his opponents are not going to back down as they have already lost and have nothing to lose. Soon enough we will be at the point of defaulting on everything which will really stir the pot and potentially cause an economic collapse of the economy and possibly the world economy. Therefore some sort of emergency power needs to be put in place in order to prevent the Repubs from sinking the whole ship, all because they don't like the color of the man behind the steering wheel.”
