    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?

    I only click flag. Trying to reason with a troll, especially megatroll, is like arguing with sewage.

    Now, this is an idea, a concept, whose time has come..
    Set those useless judges out to pasture…for all I know, we may have far too many of them..
    As far as the feeding goes, trolls are animals, animals can take care of themselves – more or less…

    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.

    Another good idea, but, I fear, whose time is yet to come.
    Terrorism is NOT something that can be “wiped out” , much like other “sins” (intolerance, bigotry, racism, hatred, fear, on and on).
    We do have to be ever vigilant, using the most effective methods.
    Drones
    “spying”
    We may be able to learn a few things from our Israeli friends..

    “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.

    I say, keep channelling taxpayer money to the private job-creating contractors.

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

    @mikefive,
    Unfortunately, satire really does NOT come through as “obvious” in short written material, such as blog comments. And, in simple point of fact, replacing human “rubber stamps” with mechanical ones isn’t clearly satire to begin with, Rather, it’s a good idea, whose time may have come.


    @edclectic,
    ANY part of it that has to do with freedom of speech for others; especially others who happen not to be under his tutelage as to how to think, what to think, and when they may have the privilege of thinking – or parroting HIM.

    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.
