    That wasn’t my point…quite the opposite, that anyone who doesn’t have anything to hide probably isn’t very interesting. Anyway, as Snowden said recently, the government doesn’t have the right to spy on you even if you are dull as dirt.

    Terrorism is the use of violence against civilians to achieve a political end. So: drones. Aerial bombardment in general. Mass arrests. Force feeding at Gitmo. Etc.

    “Comrade” is an honorific. Please do not presume to be my comrade.
    ISIS can work on whatever they want; fact remains, the official assessment of the US government is that they are not a threat to the US. Granted, they could be wrong. But that’s another cartoon.
    If Clinton hadn’t attacked Afghanistan in 1998, 9/11 might never have happened.

    Actually, in terms of raw numbers of innocents killed, it’s no contest – the US is far more brutal and murderous than ISIS.

    Michael is right. I was lazy.

    The reason we have politics, and a Congress, is that we have concerns beyond what went into the Constitution more than two centuries ago.

    The “affirmative verbal consent” part is what’s ridiculous. Just as ridiculous as rapists who claim to have thought their victim “wanted it” when they really didn’t.

    Short of murder, rape is the worst thing one human being can do to another. That said, false accusations are not so rare as to not be a legitimate concern: http://www.centerforinquiry.net/blogs/entry/the_anatomy_of_false_accusations_a_skeptical_case_study/
    I think the law is funny, because it’s divorced from the reality of how people actually have sex. They go on visual and other cues about what is OK and what is not. Obviously communication is key, but imposing a legal requirement like this is unrealistic and therefore ridiculous.

    I guess the key word was “a LITTLE research.” Very, very little.
