  •  I'd just like to hear some (5+ / 0-)

    Solid, fact-based discussion of what is a very, very troubling program, especially since so much of it is in the hands of private companies, without having to wade through kossacks hurling insults at one another instead of at the perpetrators.  This quickly degenerates into a pointless back-and-forth, which takes our eye off the problem, and is very effective in the GOP game of "let's you and him fight,". The suggestion that, except for a few obvious trolls, people who disagree with us are morons or nazis or enablers or anti-Semites or, God forbid, Republicans, does zero to convince anyone, zero to pressure Congress or the executive branch to pare down the heinous and far-reaching law, and zero to protect our rights as citizens.

    "Why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anything involving a Negro comes up, is something I don’t pretend to understand." ~ Atticus Finch, "To Kill a Mockingbird"
