59. I agree that people of color have it worse under our legal system...and you already knew I did.

Who is to say that what Greenwald and Miranda did here was a "needless" breach of the law?

Should we just trust those who are secrecy fetishists simply because we have a supposedly Democratic president?

Remember, it was under several Democratic presidents that J. Edgar Hoover persecuted leftists, used clandestine powers to help preserve Jim Crow, and possibly conspired in the murders of major American figures in the legitimate struggle for justice for all.

Only the rich would benefit from Snowden being punished anyway. Arresting and persecuting him(as they have persecuted Bradley Manning)could never be for the good of the people. Secrecy is the enemy of all that is positive in life.
