• Firebird, sweet.

    • I didn't read his analysis. I have no idea why Greenwald wrote such a long article nor do I really care. I read the facts which are corroborated by corporate/mainstream media. I am outraged at the Democrats who claim to be fighting Trump but not only did not do so but maintained what I believe...

    • If that's all it's about, if all "It's about the fact that a number of Democrats voted to maintain Trump's ability to harvest your communications without a warrant" then why did Greenwald write such a long article? And why do you trust his analysis? Fine if you do, I'm just saying I don't and I'...

    • Remember a story a while back from the Sierras - a cougar (real one) attacked a hiker, had to be put down, leaving several cubs - meanwhile the hiker, a woman, left behind a couple orphans. Was easy to get donations for the cougar cubs, not so easy for the human cubs. Kinda like Bezos' offer for...

    • A lot more Eskimo than Cougar up here in the north, Catherine Deneuve be damned. Also carrying grandma up to the snows on Fujimori... disposable, aren't we?

    • What exactly did I write that math disproves?

    • I don't trust that Greenwald is correctly reporting the facts. As AA pointed out I'd have to read extensively to know what facts he's leaving out. I'd also have to read extensively to determine if he's lying. So if I really know the subject well I can add what's missing and subtract what's false...

    • A majority of Republicans voted for the current law. A majority of Democrats voted for reforming the bill. Math is not your friend.

    • One can fairly attribute motives to me for posting this article. One obvious one is that I wanted to provide an example of a vote where powerful Democrats sided with Trump and in favor of more government intrusion into our private activities. NCD claimed, however, that I was "assum[ing] or...

    • AA, I will never understand the Christian Right!

      I always think about Sam Kinison.

      Here was this eight year old? and son of a preacher who took the stage and

      ranted about God Almighty at his parent's request and ended up a stand-up

      comic with a drug problem....

    • This isn't about Greenwald's opinion. It's about the fact that a number of Democrats voted to maintain Trump's ability to harvest your communications without a warrant.

    • I agree. There's all of that. And then there's that he still writes like the lawyer he is, not like a journalist. it's advocacy, always one side of the story, purposely leaving out anything that would balance.(Main reason why people hate lawyers.) And then taking that into account, there's also...

    • I no longer trust Greenwald's reporting and take everything he writes with a grain of salt. I followed his arguments with Sam Harris who I like. I've read a few of his books and watched several of his debates, lectures, and podcasts. I know his work, I may not always agree with his point of view...

    • American shitholes-still not news

      Of course not! Because: we are the shining city on the hill, the streets paved with gold if you are willing to work hard! And Emma Lazarus welcomes all who would like to partake. And therein lies the whole immigration issue conundrum, why...

    • Must say that it has always driven me nuts when people assign motives to someone posting stories in "In the News" section. Unless someone adds a comment, the only motive that should be assigned is "I found this interesting," if it's otherwise, they would have blogged it, or they should have. Of...

    • It is just a natural thing that I myself succumbed to as a youngin and now as an older woman I ponder about it a lot: an older human male who has not just survived but has thrived, is healthy and successful is an alpha, able to protect well. And a younger female is fertile. You can't avoid the...

    • I neither assumed nor fabricated any motives. The simple fact is that Democratic leaders sided with Trump and against you.

    • Greenwald, and often Hal, mode of operation is to assume or fabricate the worst motives imaginable for anyone in the Democratic Party. Driftglass on GG: Glenn - "Anyone who disagrees with me is a drooling jackbooted Obot stooge and betrayer of all things Progressive" 

      Greenwald...
