    Yes, if they allowed the people to own their own land they'd probably take more care in crop rotation, etc.

    I do have an opinion of what Obama did: Good on him, he didn't act like an international level dickbag, and he's working to mend a broken relationship from an era two decades past.
    Maybe you should move on from the 'implicit' stuff into what is actually being said.

    Are you saying that wasn't the implication of the OP's post? Then what was?

    Do you have any evidence, or am I just supposed to believe you that the image I see plainly is not real?

    I don't deal in implications. If a poster cant get their idea across explicitly then there's little point in responding.

    Fine then, I can play your semantic game too: What do you think the OP is saying?

    Like many I was at first against Snowden but am now realizing he may have made a major contribution to the continuation and maintenance of US rights and freedoms.
    Yes true. And even within the Democratic Party there has been acknowledgement that the material that Snowden has released hasn't threatened national security or given any terrorists a leg up. What it has done is exposed wrong doing on the part of the NSA, embarrassed them and put the agency in a defensive and damage control mode. And hopefully everyone concerned will help in their tiny or huge way, depending on who they are and what their access, power, influence etc. is, continue to put pressure (Jim Sensenbrenner) on those who alone have both the authority and means to align the NSA with the constitution, and not with corporate or whatever other interests there may be for having veered from that in the first place.

    Sure, all news comes from Fox. :0)

    Those sites also say the US imprisons more of its citizens than any nation on planet earth. Maybe Fox tells you something different. :0)

    Is it important why people are imprisoned or is it just the number that is important?

    It was all over the place when the idiots released the fake. He actually faux kissed him on the cheeks as is custom. Some joker photoshopped the image to have him kissing the dude on the lips.

    But hey, love how you are now holding Bush up as the gold standard for foreign relations.
