    political malice, of a absolutely no value to the public.

    Snowden gave evidence for secret government activities about which the government has lied and conintues to lie about, such that dozens of organizations have now filed suit.

    So, tell me, what is your lame-ass argument?

    That's Funk, not Fink. Think Guy Fawkes with glide in his stride and pep in his step. Parliament-style. Ka-BOOM! Dude blew my mind.

      gave out evidence of the government gathering intelligence on foreign countries, which the government didn't lie about because that's what the NSA does.

      He gave out that evidence not because he saw some huge crime against us that needed to come out, but because he doesn't believe we should spy on countries that we are not at war with.

      That skates the edge of whistleblower - if you out something just because you don't like the policy, you aren't protected.

      It might suck that we spy on Russia or China, and we might not think the NSA should do that, but it's not illegal and it's not a violation of our 4th Amendment rights.

      We can applaud Snowden revealing the NSA gathering our data, but he then proceeded to walk the rest of the classified information - stuff the guardian wouldn't print -  from one regime to another.  

      Snowden is not purely "good" and Holder et al are not purely evil.

      We were just high fiving Holder for going after the Texas voting laws.  Now he's a henchman who can't wait to torture Snowden.

      Nothing in between?  

      Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. Barack Obama
