Comments on: More questions for Snowden and the GOP establishment takes on the 2016 primaries http://blogs.reuters.com/stories-id-like-to-see/2014/06/03/more-questions-for-snowden-and-the-gop-establishment-takes-on-the-2016-primaries/ Steven Brill Tue, 19 Aug 2014 18:30:28 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: act1 http://blogs.reuters.com/stories-id-like-to-see/2014/06/03/more-questions-for-snowden-and-the-gop-establishment-takes-on-the-2016-primaries/comment-page-1/#comment-582 Wed, 04 Jun 2014 13:41:46 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/stories-id-like-to-see/?p=1641#comment-582 Snowden’s an out-and-out thief pretending to be a patriot.

As to my GOP party, I’m afraid it just doesn’t get it It’s heavily tainted with far right views and behavior. It’s “Shining Star” Cruz would have gladly put government out of business in order to stop ACA (Obamacare).

Left or Right, none of the professional politicians have the guts to oppose the NRA and we continue to have cumulative mass murders across the country of over 600 people per week.

This is just nit picking and stirring up mud. It means exactly nothing.

If mainstream media spent as much print examining the abuse of the American public, we would be seeing some reforms already.

Overlooking the main story and nit picking the details only bolsters Snowden’s assertions and pose as big government’s tool.

* tell us how much you love the United States?
*which is better: a hand gun or rifle?
*tell us why taxes are bad
*what is your favorite color
*do you think Obama was a good President?

Because they know that most of the people paying attention to the story, are the ‘tinfoil hat’ crowd, that thinks the government is watching their every move. And obviously, those people think Ed is a big hero. So no media outlet is ever going to bend over backwards to show what he really is, because all those people would stop watching.

Ed is the typical wannabe failure. He’s like the nuts that want to be a cop… Get rejected because they’re not good enough… Then spend the rest of their lives trying to get revenge on the same people they once idolized… and sometimes in violent ways. He tried joining the military, because he supposedly wanted to do the whole ‘spec ops’ thing. He instantly washed out of that. Of course, he tries to claim that he left on his own, but no… He was booted. Guys that do well in that world, are kids that grew up rolling around in the dirt and mud with their dads out in the wilderness. Guys like that take one look at some soft skinned, milk toast guy like Ed, and they instantly know what he is… A guy that will turn tail and run, the second things get tough. So they probably froze him out, then he washed out. So that was failure #1. He then gets what basically amounts to a glorified computer repair job with BAH. Once again, he got to be around his heroes with the CIA, but more than likely, they froze him out as well. He wouldn’t be considered one of them, and technically couldn’t be. So that was slap in the face #2. Then undoubtedly, the same thing happened at NSA… Worked with them, but never would have been accepted as one of them. Slap in the face #3.

So there’s ED, failing at becoming what he most wants to be… Some sort of James Bond spook. So then he goes into… ‘If I can’t be them, I’ll destroy them’ mode. It was only a short time trying to pass info to American media outlets, before he decided that wasn’t getting him enough attention, so he went off to hand out info to the Chinese media… and I’m sure his intent was to keep doling out little bits and pieces for years, trying to make the US look as bad as possible. Nothing he has disclosed was all that earth shattering. At least not for anybody who has ever bothered to actually know anything about the NSA. But to the people who think every helicopter flying over their house is somebody watching them… It was just verification of some insidious thing that they already thought was happening. ie: Ed is a big hero.

The systems require management and are therefore increasingly wielded like a tool or a weapon, by those who have power. The rest of the population is still needed to do specific things. But the citizens are not needed to contribute to the form or direction of the society . The more ” advanced ” the citizen becomes, the more irrelevant the citizen becomes . John Rawlston Saul – Voltaire’s Bastards

So here was a guy who woke up one morning and saw precisely that – the system being wielded like a weapon – and decided to do something about it . One day enough Americans will wake up from the American Dream like Mr Snowden and when that day comes the whole sentimental fantasy world that is America will crumble to dust .

No low-level analyst would have such access without BIG help.

Regarding the republicans, there goes another nail into the coffin of free speech. The people in control have all gone mad in their lust for power and any media organization that allows itself to be controlled by them far beyond any semblance of honor. Fellow Americans, we must send every conservative home in the next elections and restore democracy in America.
