The EFF and Greenpeace are not anti poverty orgs. The EFF is a Progressive/libertarian org, and Greenpeace has been able to gather some non traditional support due to the Keystone XL pipe.

The "barely-suppressed rage" is embodied in the title you chose for your article. 

Mr. Snowden is not an important person, the documents are.

But if you find yourself unable to report on them then your might be more comfortable working at TMZ, as they prefer idle speculation about famous people over substance.

Net neutrality would not prevent the Netflix Comcast deal, but it would have prevented Netflix from being forced into the deal just to deliver its video service. Ideally Netflix would approach Comcast on equal footing if they decided it would be advantageous to connect more directly with them.

At this point it seems like we are encouraging these people to hold this trauma in and never force them to face and overcome the trauma. 


We would have to rewrite human history to edit out all the stuff that might offend one group or another. And learning about it is supposed to be a bit traumatic, if we leave that out then the human race cannot learn from our collective past. Should we sanitize WWII for everyone?

We need to fight back even more against these billionaires who think they are so slick. They need another tax hike even if it is just to limit their ability to pay off public officials.

My friend in Russia was very upset over this. Him and his parents like this station. He says they came back on air but who knows how long that will last. I think his area is a slightly more progressive Muslimish area.

The well off and older Jewish people in America Often ignore the problems Israel is causing and how they are hurting Palestine. The stated speaking policy is out of line because boycotting Israel is a valid thing to speak about in an academic setting, just how South Africa was boycotted.

There seems to be a misunderstanding about what we the people mean by reform. We do not mean legalize what they did illegally!

I'm not sure these old timers understand what the methods are. Those dang computation machines.

 

And as a side note the ambassadors might have wanted an analysis of not wire tap info. They might have assumed the NSA was just really awesome at looking at and predicting a leaders actions based on past behaviour.

You contradicted yourself at the end. If they work hard to gain advantages that is the work-reward link you are saying does not exist. And the private banking in the US is better on service but interest rates are so low that there is no incentive to keep your money there. Government contracting is just as corrupt here if not worse because it is hidden and legal. When capitalism morphs into aristocracy it becomes a drag on a nation and its people.

That tumblr has mostly BS on it. Only one out the of the 10 posts was about sexism. Mansplaning has turned into a term for people who wish that men where silent unless spoken to. Yeah that is not equality and if anything will just fuel more backlash.

You thesis for the timing seems to assume that telecommunications and transportation where the same as they are in this day and age. And it makes several assumptions that one bomb should have provoked immediate surrender or none at all.

I'm concerned they, the troops, are too separated from the concerns and situations of everyone else. And this while nice, doesn't help.
