    June is National Do Not Feed the Troll Month!
     
    Here’s how it works. If you run across an obvious trolling (inflammatory and provocative) comment, and you’re tempted to click “Reply” and set the troll straight, don’t. They will never learn, and feeding them just encourages them to keep coming back more frequently, persistently, and outrageously.
     
    If your finger’s still twitching and just HAS to click SOMEthing, go for “Flag” instead of “Reply”.
     
    Thank you for not feeding the trolls.

    Sheesh, and yesterday the game warden told me not to feed the ducks and turtles. I never get any fun. ;D
    Good thought, Mr. Russell. However, I don’t eat much so… if you have any chili rellenos or perhaps some pad thai, I’ll eat it very respectfully. Burgers, bbq, and hot dogs are also good.
    facetiously,
    but still respectfully,

    We are paying 11 judges to work for the FISC. The way that these judges approve warrants, I think it would be cheaper to get rid of the judges and replace them with clerks and rubber stamps (or cheaper yet, a stamping machine).

    How about we get rid of the Patriot Act and the TSA?

    Snowden is dump as a rock. Running off to China only makes him look guilty. Here at least he would have Whistle Blower laws. All he had to do is go to a good lawyer who knows about such things.

    Such a lawyer could even tell Snowden if he had something worth saying.

    “Here at least he would have Whistle Blower laws. All he had to do is go to a good lawyer who knows about such things.”

    Tell that to Bradley Manning. Or to Julian Assange. See if they agree.

    Adrian, you really need to read up on FISC. FISC is a joke. All those 11 judges do is rubber stamp the warrants or subpoenas that DOJ brings to them. Also, the obviousness of my comment being satire should have been apparent.

    Which parts of The First Amendment are you having trouble understanding?

    Adrian Snare: Learn what? Like how to build houses in Mexico or Canada and declare it US territory? I remember the Third German Empire called it Lebenstraum (literally, living space) and you can see what resulted from that. But then the Nazis didn’t have Uncle Sam pat them on the head and say, “good boy” every time they did evil.

    Privatization, folks. The best and the brightest are FAR too expensive; paying them cuts into the CEO’s bonus- so hire a bunch of schlubs without vetting them and trust that they’ll do just fine, because private enterprise is ALWAYS better than government!

    Nobody seems to have commented on the art today, so allow me. I love it! These could so easily be characters straight out of Dickens. (Of course, privatizing your national security is straight out of Lewis Carroll………)

    Taxpayer funds for National Security needs to be effective and Scotch! Taxpayers might want bridges that don’t collapse, or an electric grid that doesn’t black out, or updated infrastructure to keep American jobs here so the we can be competitive in the World markets.

    You should move to Russia so you can write for Pravda.
