    Jesus christ. It's the military, there are procedures for how to wipe your ass(see note) for god's sake. There are procedures for everything, including specific situations like this.

    Note: military procedure for wiping ass.

    1) take one square of military issue toilet paper.

    2) fold the paper in half

    3) turn paper 90 degrees, fold the paper in half again.

    4) at the corner with the most fold, tear the corner out.

    5) place finger through corner

    6) wipe

    7) remove paper from finger, removing feces from finger as you go

    I once wrote:

    "There was an ABC to everything. There were films on how to brush your teeth. There were films on VD. There were films on lose lips and bullet tips. Anything a know-nothing couldn't care less about knowing was shown in films and written without style in thousands of Army manuals. And the powers that ran my life often pointed this out to me." -- Reflections Spring 1996

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The guy who shot at the white house was almost certainly guilty as is Manning. The fact that nobody was hurt as a result of their actions is simply a mitigating circumstance to be used in determining their sentencing.

    It's not. However, that may not be all he exposed. And how he did matters.

    You also think Socialism is a great way of life, so it's not a wonder you don't comprehend how treason is a crime either.

    Manning wasn't exposing "war criminals", he was giving sensitive/classified information to a foreign entity to harm his country. The law says, he can be shot for that, and should have been YEARS ago. Sadly, this did not happen.

    IF his goals were the noble effort folks... like you and a few others here claim his were, he would have taken the data, contacted a major news organization to assist him in handing the information over to the proper authorities (while ensuring the news organization got the scoop on the story), that's how it works. That's a whistle blower. Manning is anything BUT a whistle blower, and should be treated as such.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You got me!!!
    How does socialism have anything to do with this?

    so it's not a wonder you don't comprehend how treason is a crime either.
    Being a socialist=Not understand what treason is?
    Your knowledge never seems to fail you!


    Manning wasn't exposing "war criminals", he was giving sensitive/classified information to a foreign entity to harm his country.
    Ignoring torture?
    Blatantly killing innocent civilians?
    Those are not war crimes?
    And how did this harm the country?
    Did the Pentagon papers harm the country?
    I mean the white house seems to agree that these didnt do any harm to the country..

    The law says, he can be shot for that, and should have been YEARS ago. Sadly, this did not happen.
    Go ahead do "justice"!
    Why wasnt Daniel Ellsberg shot?


    IF his goals were the noble effort folks... like you and a few others here claim his were, he would have taken the data, contacted a major news organization to assist him in handing the information over to the proper authorities (while ensuring the news organization got the scoop on the story), that's how it works.

    So for it to be "noble" you have to go to a national corporate ran "news" entity?
