    Snowden exposed crime. Think about how that relates to sunzi...

    If that is your opinion, then Jesus would have won it in his time. Of course, to your dismay.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

You have to be extra stupid to do it how Snowden did it. If there was a problem, it would be easy to expose it without exposing yourself and being in Russia. But you can't be an idiot like Snowden. Can't believe it. Even Watergate was broke by keeping the primary safe. Has the world dumbed down.
    Are you all worried your illegal activity was found out with illegal means? Means we all skate, we all get an out of jail free card for our activities not related to terrorism.

    I find it hilarious people who do talk in the clear are upset they were cheap and talked in the clear - there are secure means to talk, and I guess geeks are the only ones who do it.

    I used secure com before, why are all you Snowden fans unable to stay secure? We can't stop listening, we will not stop listening, we have been doing it for a long time. All they needed was warrants, or you gave permission and never knew it - in the military you calls are what?

    Russians are now able to study Snowden's stuff and see if they are doing all the stuff we are. Snowden is a traitor, any good he does is offset by the waking up the lazy terrorists to be secure, and others now buying the secure com stuff from the companies I bought stock in the day Snowden when stupid on the US. Good job Snowden, you get an award for making my stocks jump. Give him the Nobel, more advertising for my stocks, and my profits in 2014, the year of the secure communication buying spree inspired by a failed nut; wait, did Snowden and his dad buy up the stock too?

    Good luck Snowden, you sure are stupid - Cold?

    At least he did something, huh? Right or wrong, but he put in some effort.

    Jesus is the Nobel Peace Prize as far as I'm concerned. He was first a foremost a pacifist:

    Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God

    How he, in 2014, would assess the current situation I cannot presume.

    What the Pope wants, is more government involvement to make things fair.

    I can't get on board with that, even if Jesus said so himself.

    So, now treason is worthy of an award? Interesting. Also interesting that they labeled him a whistleblower, since that is not the consensus.

    Since it was Alfred Nobel who invented dynamite, and it's use in weapons of war, it is quite ironic who is getting the peace prize nowadays.

    OBAMA - We will bomb them into peace. LOL.

    Like it or not, the Pope is God's representation on earth.

    And would have been called a traitor by Cheney and Bush and Americans last decade.

    Might even be held at Gitmo .
