I’m very glad to see this. My parents lived in North Carolina and would have been proud of you.
greenharper commented on the diary post AAA Gets an “F” For Dumping Agents, Leaving Customers in the Lurch by Consumer Watchdog.
May I suggest an alternative to AAA? It’s the Better World Club, 1.888.732.1427, http://www.betterworldclub.com. Environmentally responsible, by all accounts. A few years ago I switched to it from AAA. The one time with BWC that I had to have my car towed, the service was fine. Tow truck knew where I was (driver’s mother used [...]
greenharper commented on the diary post Peter Van Buren: The Divine Right of President Obama? by Tom Engelhardt.
Thanks. Recommended. Never thought to see the day when an article such as this would be necessary. It’s essential to keep talking about this criminal extraconstitutionality of the Obama administration. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, I did some work with Eastern European ministries of justice. Then, Eastern Europeans wanted to know about U.S. [...]
Brandon, you do a great job!
Would not have known but for you that Scottish independence had progressed enough to make the English try to bully the Scots over the pound, or that some crocodiles can climb trees.
Both are quite worth knowing. Each in its appropriate sphere, of course.
I like the nice greetings with which you open, as well.

Thanks for being there and reporting on this, Jane24!
greenharper commented on the blog post In Letter, Imprisoned CIA Whistleblower John Kiriakou Says Nothing is ‘Corrected’ at Loretto Prison
Kudos to Mr. Kiriakou for continuing to write from Loretto. Does anyone else see how his handwriting has been affected in the past year? It’s still clear, but it’s not as firmly formed as it was at first. Thanks to him for his courage in keeping at it!

Have tried to get my town to take this seriously. Answer: Until the CDC nixes fluoride, it stays in our water.
Maybe Harvard will be good enough.
“The new policy remains that the president can murder anyone, anywhere, along with whoever is near them, but must express angst if the person targeted is a U.S. citizen.”
Thanks for using the ‘m’ word.
Using it makes me feel quaint. Nice to have company.
greenharper commented on the diary post DEA ‘Parallel Construction’ Manuals Available Now Online by wendydavis.
I’d hate still to be a prosecutor, knowing what we now know about these DEA (and other agency?) “parallel construction” practices.
‘Lying,’ I think they used to call it.
greenharper commented on the blog post ‘Death by Unreliable Metadata’—How NSA Contributes to Drone Assassinations of the ‘Wrong People’
Thanks, Kevin, for staying on top of this appalling story.
So casual they are about murder! By the President of the United States.
It is beyond absurd. Murdering cellphones, and only incidentally people.

Hi, Vicco, Kentucky!
Terrific! Great work on endorsing H. 676.
Love the quilt in your town hall, too.
Don’t love coal mining so much. A great-uncle of mine was disabled by pneumoconiosis. Penna. soft coal. Good for you all for keeping going despite it.
Re drones, and “enhanced interrogation,” and a slew of other reprehensible techniques that the U.S. military uses abroad, what keeps zinging about in my head is an old verse from our war in the Philippines, early in the last century: He’d never dream That his bullet’s scream Flew wide of its island mark, Home to [...]
Thanks, Kevin, and thanks to John Kiriakou for continuing to tell truths that the BOP, and others for all I know, clearly do not want told.
Just where IS the BOP Inspector General in all this?
