Re: “Stay in the Woods

Oak,
I think the rumor is true and, I think that it is also true that it is being pushed by people who find the loose wire Trump, a threat. Were he in line, they would find the collusion no big deal.
Or the whole side show is bread and circuses.

Re: “Stay in the Woods

Edward Snow proved that the NSA is surveilling everyone. I guess at this point, the question is, why would anyone in the intelligence community even bother denying it? As to Trump colluding with Putin though, its my opinion that this rumor is being pushed by Deep State intelligence people who hate Trump because he is saying things he shouldn't, and they are trying to get him in line, so he doesn't spill the beans on anything else they are up to.

Re: “Whistle-Blower’s Crime

@CL - You tell me. Do you react with amazement or amusment when you see a stuffed marmot quote Donald Rumsfeld? Because I'm getting both right now, but I'm not sure which flavor dominates the melange.

Re: “Whistle-Blower’s Crime

Oak: one of the most common shortcomings of self-appointed know-it-alls (you, perhaps?) is that they refuse to admit, or, more likely, just don't know, what they don't know. Since you know nothing about journalistic standards of practice, I suggest you butt out. But, by all means, keep up the ass-kissing.

Re: “Stay in the Woods

Just b/c you say it and wish it, does not make it so. There is no "unequivocable" proof of Russia colluding in our elections. How did they do it? Hack into the voting booths?

Re: “Whistle-Blower’s Crime

@FUNKbrs - Now that's an observation which I can get behind.

@Oak

If the truth hurts the state, there is something wrong with the state, not the truth.

Re: “Riding Shotgun on Politics

Jen Clarke knocked it out of the park with this article, and I might have skipped over it in my Twitter feed were it not for the infamous "Gibson Donuts" sign every Memphian can appreciate.

I'll be more careful next time, thanks for making my day!

Re: “Whistle-Blower’s Crime

@FUNKbrs - "..if the truth hurts you, there is something wrong with you, not the truth..."

This is manifestly incorrect, if the 'truth' is that you live under totalitarian control. In such a situation, the most dangerous thing an honest man can do, is articulate the truth. And this remains true, if the totalitarian state is disguised to outwardly resemble a democracy. Pointing at the 'Deep State' can be deadly dangerous. At the very least, you will be called a crank. But at the worst, you will find a series of negative consequences to your livelihood or even your life.

Ask Joe McCarthy. Or Joe Stalin.

Re: “Whistle-Blower’s Crime

Why does it not surprise me to see that self-important vainglory is still, as ever, part of certain journalists' stock-in-trade? Apparently, they choose to ignore one of the fundamental tenets of their craft, namely that journalists should never make themselves part, much less all, of the story.

Do you live on earth ern? I doubt that you do. Those of us who do me ver confuse "scheisse" with "oil".

Heck, I'm betting that you don't really speak German. You are just full of scheisse.

Re: “Whistle-Blower’s Crime

Ern,

Wrong again. That's what it was like a century ago when we used to use horses and mules to carry everything. We use cars, trucks, trains, tractors, and planes now. Do try and keep up.

Re: “Whistle-Blower’s Crime

So as not to make scheisse where we live?
