    I wondered that myself. I believe I read in Wapo (consider the source) that he is somewhat estranged from his family, so that may be it. I think the guy was pretty alone in the world prior to this. And, ironically, he’s even more alone now.

    Is that quote for real?

    Here’s an excellent analysis from Chris Floyd at Empire Burlesque. I have to say, I agree with every damn point, and man oh man, does he have a way with words. I’m going to reproduce it in its entirety because it’s so refreshing to know that there are others out there who feel exactly the [...]

    So don’t give up your day job to try stand-up – you’ll be starving.

    With humorless folks like yourself, that’s for sure.

    Your concern is disingenuous, and you’re using it here to try to score yourself some points. You could care less about getting out of your comfortable little box. Since you don’t care to have a genuine discussion, and instead want to build strawmen and promptly tear your creation down, there’s no use further engaging on [...]

    No more than it shows what you are. I’ve seen everyone and their mother exploit this event for everything’s it’s worth, including pushing the gun control agenda. My comment to which all of you are referring is actually not in poor taste. It was a response to eCAHNomics about Loughner always smiling. I found a [...]

  • Yesterday you accused some of the folks here of being sympathetic to “child molesters”.

    I did no such thing. I was using the logic of their approach with me to make a point. I wasn’t accusing them of being “child molesters” or supporting “child molesters.” I was accusing them of false reasoning.

    Dyncorp is a disgusting organization replete with “goons,” as you say. No, I don’t support what they stand for and do, in every way, not just the nefarious acts.

    So let me get this straight. You consider yourself “leftists” and here you are attempting to censor satirical expression? Is this upside down world, or what? What, pray tell, do you think the movie Natural Born Killers” was all about? Do you have the same reaction to it, and those who were involved in the production [...]

  • There is no balance here in reporting this issue. There is a great deal of stretching the truth and outright lies, and careless, if not disingenuous conflation, going on.

    1.) It has been reported here that David House is Manning’s friend. Has that been verified? If not, you can’t call someone a friend if they really weren’t their friend. It gives the wrong impression.

    2.) Jane worked you all up into a lather that she and House were detained over the weekend. All of you were running around like chickens with your heads chopped off screaming and hollering that the sky is falling and they were going to torture Jane, and that we have surely lost all of our rights because of this one event. Complete reactionary sensationalism. What wasn’t reported in the midst of the brouhaha was that Jane’s tags were expired and her insurance wasn’t up to date, or she couldn’t show proof of insurance. That’s a critical piece of information to leave out.

    3.) It now turns out that Manning WAS charged per information deposited above. I was led to believe by this site that he wasn’t charged. It’s important to get all the facts straight, and report them, before jumping up and down like a bunch of mental patients on a field trip to the zoo.

    4.) You do a disservice to all those who are being tortured by the U.S. Government when you conflate Manning’s detainment, aside from the (il)legality of it, with the torture we saw visited upon the people of Abu Ghraib. They are not one and the same, and by conflating the two, you render the accusation of a serious charge like torture that much more ineffective. It’s irresponsible and insulting to all those who have been tortured.

    If you want the barely sentient public at large to understand this case and sympathize with Manning’s plight, and the implications of what it means for them, then you better be honest with yourselves, and others, about what really is going on here. Otherwise, you’re nothing more than a reactionary echo chamber.

  • Okay, so I looked and, as I suspected, he appears to be the complimentary type of Hacker. Reviewing his resume, he’s taking a huge risk, and significantly limiting his options in regards to a career. I’m not saying that’s right, but it is how things work in this diabolical system. I assume he knew the risks and did it anyway, but why? Especially if he barely knew Manning? I’m trying to reconcile that because I’m a genuinely curious person.

  • You obviously didn’t complete your reading assignment.

  • Thank Dog for that. Did you think I wanted to be?

  • Of course I could have done all that, but I figured since you all know him so well, you’d be able to answer it right off. Obviously, you don’t know him that well, but well enough to call him a hero. There are so many heroes these days. It doesn’t take much to be a hero anymore. Even Hackers can be heroes. What’s next, child molesters. How about sending a child molester to see Manning, and then I can listen to all of you tell me how child molesters aren’t necessarily criminals and I’m an old codger for thinking so.

    Galileo said something to the effect “woe the country that needeth a hero.” Woe indeed.

  • Wow, since your detainment this past weekend, you’re a New Hamsher.

  • Because in AMERICA a person is INNOCENT until PROVEN guilty.

    In the AMERICA of your DREAMS that’s the case.

  • Is House a friend of Bradley Manning’s, or not? The more I hear, the less I think so. Considering that, what’s in it for House other than the Good Samaritan? Why would you need to “chauffeur” House in a car that had expired tags and your insurance was expired? If that was the case, why didn’t you report that yesterday when they “detained” you and David? Why would you need to chauffeur House at all? How did you hook up in the first place?

    Per Kris’s link, Hacker means many things, one of which is what I claimed.

  • I don’t know if you claim “a lot of them.” SOME (because I don’t know the percentage) of them hack various systems to steal personal information like identities. If that were to ever happen to you, you might not think so kindly of “Hackers.”

  • I would imagine if I google him, I will get the latest about him, which is what Jane says about him, which isn’t much. So we’re back to square one.

  • What. I asked the questions and you ask me for proof?

  • I would like some more information on David House. Let me get this straight. He’s a Hacker? Regardless of what he’s doing here for Bradley Manning, he’s a Hacker, right? Is that an occupation? How do you make money at being a Hacker? Aren’t Hackers generally engaged in illegal activity? Do we really want to be supportive of Hackers? How close of a friend is David House? Are his motivations truly altruistic?
