That's a better way to state my #2.

Benghazi was a CIA contact station and transfer point to route radical jihadists with arms and Saudi funding into Syria, as "Anti-Assad Freedom Fighters".
Something went sideways, and rather than expose the operation, the Embassy was sacrificed.
Do not return evil to your adversary; Requite with kindness the one who does evil to you, Maintain justice for your enemy, Be friendly to your enemy.

Fact is, none of the biblical 'message' is original.
Clever! And of course, quite literal, literally in the literal sense.
This American Slashdotter thinks it's good. Companies and people should be regulated in proportion to the harm they are capable of doing. Monsanto, a corporation that has literally created PCBs that cover the entire planet, should be regulated to hell. The corner small businessperson shouldn't. I don't see how that is unreasonable.
We wouldn't do that. Protecting people from predatory practices is the dreaded soociialsshinm.
Heh - greetings from the future. And, don't be around the World Trade Center in September, 2001.
Your attitude is all platitude.
... then you also need to convince them not to buy $200 sports jerseys, $100 bottles of Tequila, and designer clothes...
Your data-less, prejudicial canard is based on the Regan-era false-trope of the "Welfare Queen". It's a way of expressing contempt for the poor and for those who have an economic condition of disadvantage institutionally guaranteed by public and corporate policy. You get to hate, and to justify your lack of compassion. Way to go.
The fact is this: "You need to convince them" is key. Billions of dollars are spend convincing the entire American public they need this valueless, empty bullshit.
The "You" in your prescription had better be prepared to spend at a commensurate level to counter the consumerist brainwashing.
But I suspect that you don't really have your own opinions, do you? You get to select those pre-digested doctrines which allow you to justify your current role and station, while assuaging your fear of losing position.
Who really cares about the sexual proclivities of furries? I'm more worried about the proclivities of these secretive anal spies. They seem to be getting off on the conversations of pre-pubescent young men of all ages.
Of course the intelligence community is going to leak such a story, or ten, or a thousand. They want us to believe that they are actually catching terrorists, and they want us to believe that all they money they are pissing away is well spent. So, they'll tell us that they are catching Al Queda terrorists on WoW, and all the other gaming worlds.
I certainly hope that they have infiltrated the online doll makers and doll costume crowd. I know of at least one red headed Pagan who frequents those sites. That woman is a holy terror, and God knows what kind of people she associates with!
Was NOT to propose a "Drone Delivery Service" -
Instead it is a PSYCHOLOGICAL OPERATION.
- 1 Normalize and socialize the idea of drones as a common, novel feature of US civilian airspace. Contextualize debate on practical advantage over risks and intrusion.
- 2 Position Amazon as a fixture in people's discourse and attention. First, during an expected competitive and difficult shopping season and ultimately for long-term.
Does Facebook have advertising? Really? My pesky addons don't let me see any of them! Maybe I need to do something about them.
A clean desk is the sign of a sick mind.
Some of desire - no, DEMAND - clutter. You can't work on a clean desktop. Call it madness, but most of us have method to our madness.
