No, I think I mean 2007, I'm pretty sure, though in these topsy-turvy times who can tell, eh? Maybe I should get a new pair of glasses.
Oh, I don't know... There was a real famous incident way back in 2007.. Betcha there's a whole bunch of other times it happens without making the papers, so, you got your plausible deniability there to make you feel all better and stuff.
Cynical?! How can natural and normal behavior be described as cynical? It's just something we have to live through for the time being. I don't get it. Where is the cynicism? There's no cynicism, no "guilt", only acknowledgement, that it is we... who will turn the planet into the Love Boat... or the Titanic...
I'm not confident that the word "Lefties" can be used in any adult sense. I mean, it's funny, as fart jokes go, but nothing more than that.
Don't start with me, mother... you had your chance
It's called a scam. They should have pulled out sooner
Lavabit had apparently complied with much more limited surveillance demands in the past, but then decided they weren't going to do that any more... This one rests on Lavabit.
This is true. Once you sell your soul, it's pretty tricky business trying to buy it back.
Then your comprehension of the situation might approach that of reality. The ideology is bullshit. Or maybe you prefer to obsess over this person. I will not endeavor to understand why, it's only to point out a factual observation that you are mirroring those blogs you read, and they get their crap from the same wire as the "liberal" press. I'll let you in on a little secret, the press releases hardly ever reflect what goes over secured communications. I believe you would need specific clearances to know what's happening. I'm going on the assumption you don't. But maybe that's what you want me to think... Maybe you work in IDC
So, when it hits the ground, it will cause an earthquake in Wyoming? Damn Chinese, even trying to mess with our fracking...
Hey! That's a good idea. Put a 500% tariff on everything that's not made here. Who care who makes it?
At a sufficiently high level of abstraction... we are turtles and trees are lakes... and the crap you are swimming in is your own tailing pond that needs to be contained a bit better than it has been. Heh, and your evil twin d_r, identical stones you two are, he just needs more time in the rock tumbler.
And you voted for them in the election? That's okay. You are perfectly welcome to stick with the same old thing. I just find it amusing when you say you're against something that you're obviously not, while saying I'm for it. I believe this is the definition of the word "projection". And yes you were pimping them as somehow better, that changing the color of the suit will make a difference. And of course dismissing out of hand anything that doesn't suit your lifestyle is as natural as breathing, but it is your monkey trap. You just can't let go of what you have for something better. The people you are pushing are no different from any other politician. They have proven their "moral turpitude" by taking the same money and pushing the same austerity. That does not require me to supply you with "alternatives". I am simply pointing to the sign that says "bridge out". Ignore at your own peril, and continue to play the victim card. The system cannot work without a submissive, non-thinking crowd who believe they have no alternative.
Google is a "non-traditional source"?
No, you only argued for putting Ted Cruz's and friends name on the doorplate in the same fashion you were pimping McCain and Romney, like that is going to make a bit of difference. The perceived lack of alternatives does not make any of those people look any better.
...that wasn't theatrics that had me rolling in sweat in Afghanistan in 2011.
No, but it is business. The morality angle is the theatrics to sell it to the public, and it worked, I can't argue with success. I am sorry that that you thought your assigned role was for a different movie.
And you have provided no "resistance" to speak of. You are under the belief that a different face in front of the camera is all that's needed. You are retransmitting mass media content. Your "alternatives" are not.
