    So you start the fight calling one an enemy, call him a troll 3 times, and then admit you report it.

    I'm actively opposed to the positions you take

    you know what word that describes? enemy.

    as for the rest, yes we will. I'm not a mod, and either are you.

    And since I just posted proof positive that Cheney is also my enemy, an apology should be forthcoming.

    Perhaps the line between traitor and whistleblower is finer than we think. I view Snowden as a whistleblower and whistleblowing as a positive act. The fact that he broke laws in doing so could well be the fault of the laws, not Snowden. I don't see the NSA reforming itself so, sadly, the whistleblowing wasn't effective. What a government we have, huh?

    You are using the rare mistake, even typos, to paint the entire organization as corrupt. That's no better than using typos, mistakes and even criminals to indict any group as a whole.
    Doesnt seem so "rare" if it went on for 3 years...

    Go back to your post 42 and start over.
    You don't get to do what you did there and after that, which you should be apologizing for, and then demand an apology .

    So a person with different positions is your enemy.

    again, this has nothing to do with the thread in question.

    if you want to talk about yourself, find someone else interested.

    I stand by what I said in #42. report me and stop trolling the thread.

    It's not rare and they aren't correcting it. The only thing they are interested in correcting is the People finding out what they are actually doing.
