For those that call Edward Snowden a Traitor

He would have been called one no matter what administration he revealed these violations against the Constitution.

You are correct. It would just depend on what party would be calling him "traitor." That, of course, depends under which administration he revealed the violations of the Constitution. You know it, I know it, everyone with two brain cells to rub together know it.

DU2 prior to January 20, 2009 was especially concerned about the surveillance state (I refuse to call it the security state because it offers no security and certainly fails to protect us against domestic terrorists and mass murderers). The archives are there for all to see.

Massive, invasive state surveillance has *NEVER* in the course of history *EVER* benefited the constituents and citizens of such a state of surveillance.

Explain it as an explosion of technological ability, rehash it as protection for the citizens, and you know what you get? The justifications made by every single government in history that did it. If you want to know where it leads, open a damn history book, and see how *they* were also threatened by a populace that knew more than they "should".

People scream technology like this is the first time humankind has ever made an advancement in communications. NO.

Again, open a history book. Go as far back as you like, then ask yourself "are these the same excuses, are these the same motives, and how did that turn out for the people?"

I dare you.

What is up with Battle.net?

It lagged so bad I had to log out (D3).

Something happen during the maintenance window?

D:3 RoS is it just me

or does Westmarch strongly resemble the "Culling of Stratholme" dungeon? It's the one from WotLK. I ran that a bunch of times as a tank, got the dragon for timing for countless folks, and it just kind of reminds me of that.

Any other WoW players remember that dungeon and think Westmarch is similar?

Growing onions.

I picked up some bulbs to plant alone with the cucumbers and tomatoes. I live in the Deep South, not quite as Georgia, but good enough.

Here is my question - if you plant a bulb, how many onions do you get out of it? I'm sure it is a silly question, but as a novice I've hunted high and low for information.

My favorite Sesame Street video

Post yours if you remember which they are

I'm putting together a box to donate to a shelter

People need shoes, they need work clothes and they can always use socks.

The poor can always use an old suit for one reason or another, and they certainly can use fresh underwear.

Just a thought.

Interesting: a list of phobias

I found this one to be interesting:

Bufonophobia- Fear of toads.

Just so you know I'm not making fun of people, I have a BLAZING one. I can't be in the room if I spot a cockroach (and probably ran screaming from the location) until I can come back with enough bug spray to kill a zombie.

I'm well aware that isn't an eco-friendly position, but when it comes to cockroaches, I lose it because of my terror of the damn things.

Where are you on this list?

Okay deer just walked down the street

Huge ungulates merrily went up the road. WTF? I might not be cut out for semi-rural life.

I got really disgusted by that rape post.

Here's a little story:

Yes, women can be raped by other women.

my post:

"Yep, sure can. A 5'3" 100 lbs. woman that drank a bit and found herself fondled and penetrated by a 5'10 160 lbs. female soccer player found that out. You can get grabbed and /// then you are supposed to let it go because you drank a beer after you and your coworker and her wife went home, but coworker crashed out.

Her wife, however, wasn't finished with the night."

To put in context, here is my post in the bigger picture of the thread.

Woo hoo, I actually have some seedlings sprouting

Forgive me for being excited about seeing actual green things poke through the soil, but I have been far from successful at growing plants. I wanted to do it, though, and now I have 28 out of 36 different plants (4 Cucumbers and 24, half beefsteak, half brandywine tomatoes) sprouting! My tabasco peppers haven't peeked through yet, but they take a bit longer.

Who would have thought a brown thumb like me could get something to actually sprout? I'll be ecstatic if I can set them out and get them to actually GROW and bear fruit!
