    while you are busy defending your 'principles' you're not actually doing something, anything that could be helpful.

    While you are busy with the 'both sides do it' bullshit progressive causes are losing ground.

    While you're busy being so self righteously smug, there's work to be done.

    Don't tell me that specific democrats will disappoint on certain issues, that should be incredibly obvious. They're human and thus as prone to error as me or you.  But those specific democrats on those specific points are not everything. More over you make a fundamental logical fallacy here in assuming that anything you believe in is automatically the correct path. Life isn't math, 2+2 is not always 4 and there's generally more then 1 way to achieve a goal.

    You are right being charismatic, attractive or personable   isn't a free pass but that extends to Greenwald just as much as anyone else.

    It's really hard to hard for the same standards Yucatan when that's hardly actually true on this topic.

      I am interested is information about government over-reach regarding our civil rights and our right to privacy.

      You seem to consistently read a lot of things into other people's comments.

      "Life isn't math"  What does that mean?  The NSA violating our rights is wrong. It is wrong under Obama and it was wrong under Bush.  

      "2+2 isn't always 4"  Well, it is where you are concerned: utterly predictable.  Keep on trying to make an argument for 11th dimensional chess. It'll serve you well, I'm sure.

      •  I regarded your comment as a response in general (0+ / 0-)

        and mine was as such.

        I would suggest you're the one reading too much into my reply.

          exact same "I know you are, but what am I?" type of derailment you are famous for. (after posting repetitive comments all over this diary too)

          Kudos. Here's what I'm dealing with today, in case you even care.

            Truly I am but I'm not going to apologize for telling you the truth. My comment was as general as yours, either you will accept that or not. Just as you either will apologize for your false accusation or not.

            I'm walking away from this I hope you use the last word well.
