"Scalia's dissent is unlike any dissent by any justice I've ever read about any case.
 And that's because Scalia says that the majority in the DOMA ruling was unlike any

  So, Pigboy and Scalia say liberals gave Americans more rights using venom and rage?

Baggers: McConnell, Step Aside


A tea party group is urging Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to bow out of his reelection bid next year,
citing concerns with the longtime senator's electability.  Matt Hoskins says McConnell isn't a
strong enough candidate and that it may be time for him to "pass the torch."

“Mitch McConnell is now the least electable Republican senator running for reelection in 2014,”
Hoskins said. "He could lose this race and cost Republicans the majority. He needs to consider
whether it might be time to hang it up.”

Now, if they would just do the same with Boner...

Bolivia Upset about "Abduction"


Bolivia is complaining about the "abduction" of its president, Evo Morales, whose plane
was grounded amid a false rumor that Edward Snowden was on board.

The country reacted with fury to the enforced diversion of the plane, saying
international law had been violated and that it would complain to the U.N.

Morales' jet took off from Vienna, Austria almost 14 hours after they say was forced to land there
because France, Portugal, Italy and Spain all denied it access to their airspace.
“We want to tell Bolivians, we want to tell the world, that our president was kidnapped today,"
VP Alvaro García Linera said in La Paz. "President Morales has been abducted by imperialism
and is being held in Europe.”

I'm confused a lot these days, but if four European countries close
their airspace to a private jet,  how is that an Obama abduction?

Proof: Gambling Can Kill You


Sal Culosi is dead because he bet on a football game — but it wasn’t a bookie or a loan shark who killed him.
His local government killed him, ostensibly to protect him from his gambling habit.

Several months earlier at a Virginia bar, detective David Baucum overheard some friends wagering on
a college football game. “To Sal, betting a few bills on the Redskins was a stress reliever, done among friends,”
a friend of Culosi’s told me shortly after his death. “None of us ever thought that betting fifty bucks on a
football game was a crime worthy of investigation.” Baucum apparently did. After overhearing the men wagering,
Baucum befriended Culosi as a cover to begin investigating him. During the next several months, he talked Culosi
into raising the stakes of what Culosi thought were just more fun wagers between friends to make watching sports
more interesting. Eventually Culosi and Baucum bet more than $2,000 in a single day. Under Virginia law, that was
enough for police to charge Culosi with running a gambling operation. And that’s when they brought in the SWAT team.

On the night of January 24, 2006, Baucum called Culosi and arranged a time to drop by to collect his winnings.
When Culosi, barefoot and clad in a T-shirt and jeans, stepped out of his house to meet the man he thought was
a friend, the SWAT team began to move in. Seconds later, Det. Deval Bullock, who had been on duty since
4:00 AM and hadn’t slept in seventeen hours, fired a bullet that pierced Culosi’s heart.

Sal Culosi’s last words were to Baucum, the cop he thought was a friend: “Dude, what are you doing?”

In March 2006, just two months after its gambling investigation resulted in the death of an unarmed man,
the Fairfax County Police Department issued a press release warning residents not to participate in office
betting pools tied to the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. The title: “Illegal Gambling Not Worth the Risk.”
Given the proximity to Culosi’s death, residents could be forgiven for thinking the police department believed
wagering on sports was a crime punishable by execution.

You see how dangerous gambling can be?

You perform TWO "miracles," which is what?

A "Miracle" is when Aunt Sally has an eye operations that the doctors say probably
won't work, but then you pray for her and she gets better and that's a "miracle."

Have you ever seen such bullshit in your life?

Show me a scientist who has declared these "miracles" valid.

The NSA Chilling Effect
by 90% Jimmy


I believe in the Occupy movement and have an Occupy bumper sticker on my tailgate.
I have seen only one other Occupy sticker on any car anywhere I've been. I surmise from this
scientifically invalid study that most American's have little to no understanding about the Occupy Movement.

The totalitarian police state treatment of Occupy Protesters has made me EXTREMELY RELUCTANT
to participate in anyOccupy gatherings. Simply put, I don't want to go to jail, get tasered, pepper sprayed,
cracked in the face with a police baton, or loose my eardrums from police noise machines.

Also, I just plain don't know how to navigate big cities like New York. And I can't stand camping out.

Not to mention Occupy on the east coast seems to have fizzled. I'm even reluctant to peruse any
Occupy websites, lest I put a big drone target on my back.

I fear my own government a hell of a lot more than any terrorist, simply because the probability of my
own government wrecking my life if they chose too is about 10,000% greater than being a victim of terrorism.

Subject: level of stupidity

Whatever Snowden has done which might be against the law, treason isn’t one of them.   

The Constitution defines treason as specific acts, namely "levying War against [the United States],
or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.   All we know is that he leaked
documents to the Washington Post and Guardian, two mainstream Western news organizations. 
Hardly meets any of the three standards.  

I realize that reasonable people can disagree on this, but you're saying that delivering four stolen,
NSA computers to Russia  "hardly" meets the stardard for treason?

I can't fathom that mindset, but I'm not going to throw my poop at you because we disagree.

Did Congress declare war with the Washington Post?  Did Congress declare war on the Guardian?  
Hong Kong?  Russia?  Even if it is proven that Snowden gave documents to the Russians or Chinese,
we are not at war with them. 

I'd call it treason if he gave those stolen NSA computers to Israel or England.

Recall, when they executed the Rosenbergs, it was not for treason. 

Born in 1953, I do not recall that.

Aid and comfort the enemy? 
So if Bin Laden read your blog and laughed, is that “comforting the enemy”
and Ol' Bart is guilty of treason?

So, my writing a joke in Oklahoma is "just like" delivering stolen NSA computers to Putin?
Are you sure you're not a little too caught up in this?

Regarding the Russians or Chinese taking data from his laptops, do you not think Snowden
knows what encryption is?  Look at the lengths he went to encrypt communication with
Greenwald and Gellman. So you think Snowden would not encrypt his laptops? 

So, if Snowden feels reasonably confident that Russia's top hackers could NEVER break his code,
it's OK it he travels the world with stolen NSA computers because no harm, no foul?

You ridicule him for being a high school dropout and you are that stupid about them taking data? 

I'm not sure I've ever done that, tho some have.
Not sure what "that stupid about them taking data?" means.

Properly done, encryption can take the best computers centuries to crack by brute force. 
So did he voluntarily turn over the decrypt codes?  Unless you have solid evidence of this
happening, this is just a statement you pulled out of your butt.

If Snowden's code is impossible to crack, you'd be OK with Snowden giving Putin our nuclear launch codes?
Am I the last sane Democrat standing?

You'd put America's nuclear future in Snowden's hands?
I'd prefer that our elected President make those calls.

where you might say, "I admit, he may have gone a little too far this time?"

Now we know that the NSA was spying on the EU diplomats and officials.  Great place to find terrorists! 

It would be my guess we've been spying on our allies since before WWII.
But it wasn't until now that a traitor choose to release that secret information.

Poor Ol' Bart, going to have to add 20 points it his IQ
just to attain Sarah Palin’s level of stupidity.

It goes without saying - if we disagree, it's because I'm stupid-er than Sarah Palin.
Let me guess, you've been a fan for years, right?

Your position has evolved into:

Only the people who support Snowden's right to give stolen NSA computers to Russia
should be allowed to have an opinion on this bacause pro-Obama people are just stupid.

Maybe you should've opened with that.

Silent War


On the hidden battlefields of history’s first known cyber-war, the casualties are piling up.
In the U.S., many banks have been hit, and the telecommunications industry seriously damaged,
likely in retaliation for several major attacks on Iran. Washington and Tehran are ramping up their
cyber-arsenals, built on a black-market digital arms bazaar, enmeshing such high-tech giants as
Microsoft, Google, and Apple. With the help of highly placed government and private-sector sources,
Michael Joseph Gross describes the outbreak of the conflict, its escalation, and its startling paradox:
that America’s bid to stop nuclear proliferation may have unleashed a greater threat.

 Subject: Snowden

Bart, I wanted to agree with you on Snowden. 
Part of the duty of civil disobedience is to force the government to prosecute. 
You don't have to plead guilty, but you never saw Gandhi running off to Ecuador either. 
Once you start selling secrets to foreign governments in exchange for protection, you really
can't claim to be standing on principle.

Also, he admitted that he took the job with the intent of stealing the secrets (and releasing them
to the media).  so he can't even claim to be a whistleblower.   Where I work (like almost every
other job in the country), there is a set procedure for whistleblowers.  If you believe your boss is
"in on it", you can go to the auditors, the cops, the FBI, or even your Congressman. 

You cannot just decide to go to the media until after you have approached
one (or more) of the three branches of government.

Instead, by focusing attention on himself, Snowden is doing the opposite of what he claimed. 
He is preventing the U.S. from having a discussion about domestic spying, and making the
entire discussion about Edward Snowden.

 Subject: Zimmerman prosecution is throwing the case

On Tuesday, the prosecution in the Zimmerman trial played a recording of
Zimmerman's television interview with a very sympathetic Sean Hannity.

By doing so, they saved Zimmerman from having to take the stand and be subjected to cross examination.
There was no apparent benefit whatsoever to the State's case by such a move.

It's not news that the State had to be pressured into prosecuting Zimmerman in the first place. 
Conducting an inept charade of a prosecution is their way of letting themselves off the hook
when the jury comes back with an acquittal or cannot reach a unanimous guilty verdict.

By the way, Zimmerman waived the "stand your ground" defense. 
His team is going with a traditional "feared for his life" self-defense defense.

Zimmerman might get away with murder, and that'd be another crime.

It's like grabbing your gun and driving to the Zoo at night.
You scale the zoo walls and search for the lion compound.
You climb another fence to get to the lions and when the lions eventually approach,
you shoot the lions and say, "I had to - I was in fear for my life!"
