In response to “Datagate and the Death of American Liberalism,” by Justin Raimondo, 06/14/13:
Sadly the hypocrisy of the Left has become complete. I stopped working with the Left when it became clear that they don’t care about any citizen in the US. The fact that our Fourth Amendment rights are being violated is of no moment to them. I have one standard: If it’s wrong for Bush to do’ it’s wrong for Obama to do. I don’t understand why people can’t get it. On a historical note Elijah Muhammad was imprisoned for opposing WWII and maintained the same opposition to Vietnam.
In response to “Smear Brigade Goes After Snowden,” by Justin Raimondo, 06/12/13:
Mr. Edward Snowden, last I checked, was not indicted, nor was he convicted in a court of law (even a kangaroo court) of any crime. So far only the right-wing freaks, including the neo-cons are howling for his blood. Why are we even discussing the issue of “pardoning” him? Are all of us now getting used to the idea that a “court of law” is merely an irrelevant inconvenience?
With the Patriot Act, we have now resurrected the old “lettre de cachet” for US citizens; just think of [the] conditions imposed by a National Security Letter! Only a few Roman, Hun and Mongol emperors could murder at will with ABSOLUTE impunity (we must not forget the “Emperor Bokassa I” and his ilk in
other similar marvelously civilized polities, however).
I admire your work greatly. Thank you.
