  Almost every liberal I know here in California started out with some (naive) impression of "hope and change"™.   (Look back to my skeptical posts here about that, in 2008!). Now, however, the majority of these same people loathe this administration as much as my conservative friends do, but for a somewhat different set of reasons. ObamaCorp has equalled, or even exceeded (if possible) the previous administration in plumbing the depths of lies, criminality, nepotism,...
      If Snowden had pursued "the correct" (!) (lol) method of "bringing concerns up the chain of command", what would have happened? As regards publicizing the fact that US agencies and their top executives have violated of the US Constitution as well as breaking numerous laws, a roaring silence - precisely nothing, squat! And Snowden himself? He would have gotten fired and then placed under a series of gag orders with the authorities pulling that old "national security"...
  Obviously "the government" monitors electronic communications - but since >99.99xxxxxx% of electronic communications is unrelated to terrorism, and the (highly unlikely) "terrorism signal is constantly overwhelmed by noise, filters are employed to catch any material that might be considered 'hot'. Then human beings look at it.   BUT - despite the fact that it is impossible, on account of manpower limitations to analyze and act on all this data in real time, this does...
  Why does the NSA require Verizon to turn over phone records when they more than likely already possess the requested material, obtained via their own blanket electronic surveillance techniques?    Furthermore, as recently admitted by FBI counterterrorism agent Tim Clemente, "bona fide" (for want of a better term), or "real" terrorist groups *never* use cellphones, landlines, satellite phones, or any other easily sourceable electronic or other mass communication means,...
  Wow, now quoting Tony Blair as a credible source to bolster your paranoid hate screed against 25% of the entire human race? You're on the way to hitting rock bottom...    A major political figure... Yeah, whoop dee doo. There are plenty of "major political figures" in human history who have disgraced the world and humanity with their sociopathic, Macchiavellian power-crazed strutting. Tony Blair was just one another, albeit not as notorious as some; perhaps the British...
  I would suspect that hatred, racism and other irrational reactions to the unknown or unfamiliar are all rooted in fear.
  If we leave the "inside job" explanation out of it, and veer towards "incompetence", at what point does "incompetence" assume the status of "let it happen"?
  Nobody knows why. But to go to such lengths to avoid investigating the worst crime on US soil, in US history, is the complete opposite of what one would EXPECT a government to have done, that is, in the rational world, and secondly, if their account regarding the alleged perpetrators was anywhere near accurate,  representative of reality, or complete. In the rational world, one would also have *expected* heads to have rolled - by the hundred, perhaps court cases and...
This movie was taken in the days before the Clean Air Act of the 1950s, when London was a far more hazardous place to live, especially in the winter months. As a result of thousands of people being killed by from respiratory diseases from breathing toxic and particle-laden air, a bunch of commie-pinko-tree-hugger-hippie types rattled the fossil fuel industry and demanded some accountability for the deaths cause by their emissions with yet more of those damned big...
That is true.   However, to go to great lengths to brand an entire religion/demographic group/ethnic genotype - as has been very effectively accomplished, over a period of decades, by the most effective branding tools the planet has to offer (Hollywood, the US corporate media, and US government agencies) can  most certainly be regarded as a form of racism. And as racism has its roots firmly planted in hatred.........
