Ronbo commented on the blog post Judge Defends Government Secrecy & Dismisses ACLU Lawsuit Challenging NSA Surveillance Program
No government entity would share information with with another. The recorded texts and conversations would never, EVER be crossed with the user, the number, the recipient, etc….
Ask yourself how many top NSA officials might like to make money “betting” on the stock market… or with a bit of blackmail. There are far too many ways to use private information for fun and profit.
Someone should explain to this judge that in a single fell swoop he can eliminate most strokes and heart attacks… just put all 50+ year olds to death. He seems to think by destroying privacy, that he can prevent human nature.

I just wish that journalists held the same values as Americans. Both of these people are working to cover-up the truth.
MSM journalists appear as dead as this man’s conscious.
RE: Roger Waters. Please note that ALL forward-thinking people are are berated by their contemporaries and peers. Groupthink provides comfort; but, little truth.
Ronbo commented on the diary post Big Government for Dummies: Food-stamp cuts, bloated military budgets, and state-cartel capitalism by Scott McLarty.
“At least military spending requires workers and pays them well while food stamps depend on people not working or being paid poorly.” To be truthful, you should note that most American military personnel qualify for foodstamps, WIC, etc…. AND the military / contractors are increasingly outsourcing their manufacturing… so the jobs AREN’T American. Silver linings [...]

Rule #1 – never celebrate a victory until it is won. We could easily be suckered into false faith, beliefs and hope.
Note that the most common way prosecutors take political action is by charging criminals with the WRONG charges. It’s how from Banksters to Wallstreet to Zimmerman walk free after making a killing.
Citizens MUST keep up the pressure in every way possible. This ruling give hope that our entire system is not corrupted; however, it doesn’t mean the corruption is going anywhere soon. Money CAN buy everything…eventually.

Love Grayson; dislike his barrage of emails that rarely are anything but fundraisers.
Now that the ship has sailed, our good Harry is distributing the tickets.
Reaping what you sow. More conservative than Richard M. Nixon.
And how were we duped… human nature…
About the time Obama started surrounding himself with fake Christians, I knew I had been “had”. The was that single bright spot where Joe Biden beat him to the punch supporting equal rights; but other than that, Obama seems a slight copy of GW Bush. Everything for the 1% and hardship for 95%.

It is a bell-weather moment when doing “good” puts you on the wrong side of the law.
Just put barbed wire fences around this nation to imprison us in this kafkasque nightmare.

When has invasion of foreign countries that have not attacked the US been considered “rescuers”?
Rescued from sanity into corporate profit-centers?
Sen. Clair McCaskill has swallowed the neo-con koolaid regarding the unproven meme that CW was used by the government of Syria. (The official UN report says NO SUCH THING) “Thank you for contacting me regarding the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue, and I welcome the [...]

How many do you have to kill in order to be yelled at?
When Petraeus pushed to escalate the war, thousands of thousands of additional people died – Americans AND Iraq.
The deaths of those persons were preventable. Petraeus caused their death by increasing the war efforts – against good evidence that the war was already lost.
Can’t. Obama already has plans for giving them war – you know… as the Peace Prize winner!
Excellent idea! But, it would not allow the 1% FULL control of the United States. Yes, they own the media – lock, stock and barrel. And they own the corporations. And they own the spy networks – NSA, CIA, MI6, Mossad, etc…. Don’t forget their receipts for Congress, the Judiciary and the Presidency.
But, this might allow for democracy. How can they allow that in this American Democracy – the “oldest Constitutional democracy*”
(* Iceland, not considered valid as they have actual Democracy).
Ronbo commented on the blog post Trailer for Upcoming Movie on WikiLeaks, ‘The Fifth Estate,’ Unveiled: First Impressions & Thoughts
Remember Stone’s pathetic “W.”? It fed every single lie that Bush wanted or sought to have portrayed. I give Hollywood and “F” on every single movie based upon a political figure. Why would this be any different?
Hollywood feeds their “public” exactly what their “public” wants to be fed. Expect grains of truth supporting every single piece of conventional wisdom. Don’t expect any truth and you will not be unsatisfied.
Diversity is a tough subject bcause of inherency. Sheeple are easy to wrangle, Tbogg, let’s not be so foolish as to ignore reality. LGBT individuals inherently have a different viewpoint; years of repression and societal scorn creates an environment for seeking justice. Sheeple don’t need justice, it’s coming their way naturally…generally have it and generally get it.
Tbogg, it’s a swing and a miss. But don’t worry, we all knew that you don’t understand the game…you just like holding the bat.

O is back to be butt-luved by the Reaganites. Someone ought to fill his pie-hole with santorum.
Who is he pleasin’ since it’s clearly not the public? He can’t leave well enough alone; must he try to get the love of the 1%?
Ronbo commented on the blog post Obama Administration Won’t Show Secret Legal Opinions for Targeted Killings to US Senator
How outragd would Dems be if it was a Republican President?
Political partys have co-opted our political system and insulated our populace from actual-decision making. Personally, I see very little difference between coke and pepsi – except brand identity. Sorry, Democrats and Republicans.
