15. So, when Snowden said he could tap the President's phone,
Even though the program he was working on could not do that, and Obama said specifically that "Nobody Is Listening to Your Phone Calls", who do you believe? The guy sitting in China who has lied about pretty much everything, or the President?
Snowden is an attention-seeking self-aggrandizing douchebag, being promoted by Glenn Greenwald, another attention-seeking self-aggrandizing douchebag, and supported by a whole host of other attention-seeking self-aggrandizing douchebags: the "Drs" Paul, Glenn Bekk, Alex Jones, etc, etc. None of them support the De3mocratic Party or the President. The only "revaluations" they've presented are either flat-out lies or about programs which have long been known and/or suspected, and which have been through the legislative & judicial process.
If you want a debate about whether we need FISA, PRISM and other types of limited domestic surveillance the govt is involved in, fine. Or about further protections of civil liberties, fine. Or to totally throw out the Patriot Act, the FISA courts, and make gathering even metadata without a specific warrant, fine. But Ed Snowden should not be the standard-bearer of that discussion.
"How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 AM by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth & hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?" - Charles Bukowski
