  •  I agree on the polling questions. (9+ / 0-)

    But I see an awful lot of apathy.  And the propaganda mill is on overdrive.

    •  Absolutely. I agree. The apathy (7+ / 0-)

      is pretty bad. We ain't having no "national debate" on this. Not in any real sense anyway.

    •  Unfortunately (2+ / 0-)

      the propaganda mill seems to have made its home here on this website. Always interested to see what the dregs of OFA will turn there hand to next.

        and we could've expected that. People are susceptible to propaganda and we are a place that has all kinds of communication going so the propagandists will have their place here too.

    •  DiFi played the 9/11 card once again in the linked (4+ / 0-)

      article:

      I flew over the World Trade Center going to Senator Lautenberg’s funeral,” Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” referring to Frank R. Lautenberg of New Jersey. “And I thought of those bodies jumping out of that building hitting the canopy. Part of our obligation is keeping America safe.”

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

        DiFi played the 9/11 card once again in the linked article:
        Yes, but isn't the 9/11 card the ace of spades of terrorism cards? With some legitimacy, given the images of that day...

        Like it or not, we are cursed with interesting times.

    •  It's becoming a meme on FB (1+ / 0-)

      You can change you cover picture to show your status and who you're sharing with...

      "Going out for pizza".
      SHARE WITH:  Friends Only
                            Friends & CIA
                            CIA Only

      That's more than apathy - that's not giving a damn at all about the implications.  

      But, if you are on FB, you've given up all hope of privacy anyway - no matter how restrictive the privacy controls.
