    Well, we just disagree I suppose. I wonder though, is it better to own slaves to keep them safe from others aggression when you can't make such a practice laid to rest, or is it better to stay out of the practice entirely. Not saying he did this, but its worth mentioning that if that is the reality of the world it is probably best to actually own slaves to save them from the misery that could come to them by your neighbor.

    You really going to try and justify slavery?

    Not the case as there are mechanisms that legally allow people to report violations and provide protections to those people.

    No, that is not what I'm doing. I'm making a hard choice between two really crappy choices. Sure, you should fight for them, but you still have to keep them safe in the mean time.

    What makes you think this was a violation?

    This Edward Snowden we all know will be dragged in and charged with treason, but he is not a traitor, but a goddamn patriot. I'm sick of the government violating the rights of people and then charging those brave enough to speak up about it with treason. If this isn't an act of an out of control government I really don't know what is.
    Ok so my problem with this is that it was a court order. Therefore I don't see how it's a government wrongdoing. I don't agree with it, but it was not a single handed decision and validated by an interpreter of the Constitution
