41. I was and still am very much against the warrantless wiretapping

 

that occurred under Shrub. I'm also very much against torture.

I'm also against corrupt CEOs who participate in insider trading. I remember when this all happened. Most of DU sided AGAINST this guy and didn't believe his claims. I remember many employees of Qwest who were quite upset with what this guy did to the company (when the stocks suddenly went down, after he cashed out, there were a LOT of working Americans who were laid off).

This is an example of confirmation bias. This guy, a despicable piece of shit, committed crimes. Then, when he was arrested for said crimes (after a long investigation), he cries foul and blames the NSA. So, those biased AGAINST the NSA tend to believe that there was a conspiracy to take him down. The only "proof" he has is his words. And the words of a criminal mean fuck all.
