    Have they somehow proven to be the peoples friends at some point in history? I must have missed that part in history. Can you tell me about it? Maybe you can refer me to a book on that time period.
    hahahahahaahahahaha you do!!! ahhaahahah

    Nope, if you can understand the english language it's rather obvious.

    The distinction is in the power they possess over the people, not in how easy it is for me to become a member.

    Well when someone says "my opinion is right and everything else is wrong" there's no debate. Remember: people with hilariously extreme positions aren't worth debating.

    I asked you if you would like to see Clapper and or the NSA prosecuted.

    I don't think one mitigates the other. I'm saying that if Snowden is to be prosecuted for "stealing" state secrets, the NSA ought to be prosecuted for the much larger crime of violating the American people's fourth amendment right, which could easily have been the first. The problem is that some people don't know when their civil liberties have been infringed, or perhaps worse, don't care.

Was it the right thing to do? I don't know, but you can bet most officials don't like having secrets revealed any more than the rest of us do...hence the outraged clamor!
    Howdy Pol! Exactly.

    Except that one actually is a crime, the other has been found to be legal, some people just think it should be a crime.

    I refuse to believe that you can't wrap your mind around this, so I have to presume you're just trolling.
