    Sorry, I was thinking of Patty Hurst... Oh and now that I look it up she was pardoned TWICE; once by Carter and once by Clinton --- Two peas in a pod those guys...

    Putin turns Snowden over to Obama and you will see libertarians pull SDS/Weather Underground type stunts....

    He is if Putin wants to incite a US civil war which Putin certainly doesn't for economic reasons.

    that's right ... but I find this story fascinating ... a lot of people on the right and left are more pissed off at what he revealed than the fact that he probably broke the law ... despite our differences, both sides tend to like ther privacy ... go figure ..

    Singular people want THEIR utopia - the hell with the rest of society.

    They're all totalitarians who believe one day they can be the next Mao or Stalin (among many nuts) and the people are their pawns and the constitution gets in their way. They either believe that or they believe they purchased their ticket to be immune from the impending effects of the "dear leaders" agenda by giving support to the "dear leader" in the short term. A good example of that would be the unions who supported Obamacare but are now calling bull**** because they're not "immune." They thought they bought a sweet ticket of immunity but they were wrong.

    What is the up side to Russia to grant asylum to Snowden?
    They get to show that they're not US puppets like the rest of the world.

    I never thought I'd say this, but I'm definitely impressed with Putin. At least somebody is standing up for the right thing.

    Sad to report, the US has become the world's most despised government. With 'austerity' programs imposed by a banking system controlled in the US, and with drone attacks throughout the muslim world, the US government is known for its cruelty, greed and murdering ways.

    Russia steps in and is suddenly the refuge for whistleblowers and enemies of the state. My, how roles have been reversed....
