    What you're seeing in the "responses" to you is the frustration of people who insist that all hair must be on fire and seeing hype getting a shrug.

      Struggle with dignity against injustice. IS there anything more honorable that a person can do?

        You may now proceed to eat your own liver in frustration.

        •  So much fun to watch (0+ / 0-)

          NSA supporters recycle what few posted-to-death talking points they can still utter with a straight face.
           

          •  And by "fun" you mean "infuriating". (0+ / 0-)

            You're not smiling, you're gritting your teeth in anger.

            Too bad.

            •  Not really, spunky (0+ / 0-)

              but if it makes you feel better to pretend you're changing anyone's mind with that long-deflated bullshit, don't let me stop you.

              •  I'm pretty sure you can't stop anything. (0+ / 0-)

                You can't stop me from posting, or you'd have done it by now, and you can't stop proving my point with your fang-bared posting, or you'd have done it by now.

                I tell you what: you eat your own liver in frustration and I'll have a chuckle about the irony of you bringing up "changing anyone's mind".

                •  And you can't even prove a figure of speech! (0+ / 0-)

                  I'm pretty sure you're not changing anyone's mind on this, or you would have moved on to greener pastures by now.

                  It must be frustrating, being reduced to thinking up synonyms for "hair on fire" for a situation that, had you done your job even adequately, would be a non-story by now.

                  •  Now I'm completely sure you can't stop. (0+ / 0-)

                    Nobody with an ounce of self control would keep punching himself in the face.

                    I'm pretty sure you're not changing anyone's mind on this, or you would have moved on to greener pastures by now.
                    I'm pretty sure I don't have to.  It's the advantage of not belonging to the flailing minority opinion that sees nothing left except turning it up to eleven and going into insult mode.

                      Please provide a list of names to all those you have convinced with your piteous "arguments".
                      •  Sure, you just wait for the list. (0+ / 0-)

                        Since you're having so much "fun", I'm sure the time it takes for me to meet your demands will pass quickly.

                        •  LOL! In other words, "the list is empty" (0+ / 0-)

                          Why wait for a list that will never come?

                          •  Golly, I don't know why you'd wait. (0+ / 0-)

                            It's probably the same "reason" that made you think you're in a position to demand lists, get angry, and be insulting.  See supra.

                          •  Why wait for something you don't have? (0+ / 0-)

                            I do so enjoy watching you flail, though.  

                            Poor dear, are you insulted already? Grow a thicker skin!
                             

                          •  Why make demands as if you matter? (0+ / 0-)

                            Well, I know why: to get angry and insulting.  It's all you have left.

                          •  Why keep responding to me (0+ / 0-)

                            if you have the upper hand? Well, I know why--because you don't even have that.

                          •  Well, I did tell you to wait in (0+ / 0-)

                            hopes that you would stop asking me questions that we both know the answers to.  But angry people bent on insulting can't help themselves.  Enjoy eating your own liver.

                          •  Still haven't thought up any other synonyms (0+ / 0-)

                            for hair on fire, either. Slacker!

                            We both know you're wasting time, so why don't you just run along, now, and see if your inflated sense of self-importance and your dubious writing skills can win anyone to your "side".

                            Until we meet again. Because we will  ;)
