You got it, no sense talking to him, He's a troll with many different names. Never has a thing to say except to bitch and whine and follow me around.

You're as old as dirt joey.
It's time to make you develop more material
you miserable hypocrite with one good arm.

Time to raise your "useless chatter" up a couple of notches.

Yes, I've been around a good while, and have had a lot of experiences in that time. I know you live to hear about it too.

Yowie i just closed on a piece of shit property next to joey.

And it even smells like poo here. Looks like a stack of old microwaves over there by that unpainted shack. Sounds like he has some bitchin' mahus locked up in there. Sounds like Ms._________from Jack-In the-Box.
Shhhh i just heard one say;
" I'll take your order just pull up to the window and insert it thru the knothole joey style."
Phew i have to go get a beer and hook up my video cameras. This hood is great!


**Que pasa joey! How long until i get to see you stick to waianae lolo? Do i need to earn your trust or will a $100 in food stamps make it happen.

That isn't the question ETA136.
The answer is you couldn't make the tough choice if you were put in the same position as Snowden. We have doer's and workers and both should receive credit for what they do.
Most of us can work a job while few put their own life on the line for country.
If faced with the choice, I'd let it go because I cannot offer a better solution to catching terrorists within our borders, living among us. NSA has been data mining for many years. I wish there was a better way to catch the bad guys. Snowden leaked the surveillance information that was already out in 2005/2006. It is old news. What he failed to do was offer a better alternative, a better program to protect all of us. The government is trying to be proactive and is now placed in a reactive state because of the leaks. We are all vulnerable because he informed China, Canada, the UK, and Russia (not sure about the South American nations) about our surveillance of their governments. I wonder if Russia will want something in return for protecting him. When all is said and done, will he hack into the U.S. networks from Russia while a gun is pointed at his head two years from now? Will he infiltrate our networks if a gun is pointed at his family members' heads?

Ecryption keys can be broken, but it's not easy. I worked on one for three or four years and only made a little progress. We had hundreds of people, each working on one small block of code at a time. I was successful on only three or four blocks of code in all that time. Years later I heard it had finally been broken, but it took several years after I was gone, and we had literally a thousand computers working on it 24-7. By the time it was finally broken, it had already been obsolete for years. One guy I worked with lives in Texas and still does it, and has been working on the current code for at least twelve years now, and still hasn't broken it. I doubt a reporter has that kind of resources available to him.
Snowden must have the encryption keys and if Russia wants the keys, what then? Will Snowden give them up?...and can Greenwald be forced to give up the so-called thousands of files that he has in his possession?

Well it's not like he's claiming to be a double aught spy. Though I can see how his comments might sound amazing to a retail associate or a city functionary.

I wouldn't think it matters if if has the encryption keys. The second they were compromised the keys were zeroed out. Even back in the early eighties the systems were equipped with a large "red button" that if pushed, zeroed out the entire network in an instant. Even code books change every 24 hours, and less if there is a breech. I seriously doubt he could tell our enemies anything that they don't already know. The damage he can do is to his own country, he can embarrass the United States for a short while, but the "what if" people are always prepared to deal with that. Snowden is like a POW, great to have the first day, but after that, he's just a propaganda piece. What I don't understand is how he had access to so much information in the first place, and I bet he doesn't really have that much info to begin with. He might know for instance, that Putin's mistress loves flowers, but he doesn't know what color she likes, how long the stems are, where they come from, how many, if they are even Roses, and mainly, if it gets him laid. That's how intelligence gathering works, hard to believe one guy accessed it all.

That's the other point of contention. How did Snowden gain access? Another thing that comes to mind is Greenwald's "threat" to release everything if something happened to Snowden. Does he have the encryption key to open the files? To prevent infiltration, can you imagine changing every IP address on all of the vulnerable networks, every subnet, every server, every firewall, etc?

It would be interesting to hear the true story, but it will all be covered up, to protect careers. Did he have access to a higher class material because his boss was lazy? Was security lacking? Obviously it was, but who's fault is that? This guy had better quietly dive off a ship ala Bin Laden, or some heads will roll. Then they will poo-poo anything Greenwald says as a wild made-up story. Anything the public is told will be sanitized. This scandal has the earmarks of the JFK murder, but may be even larger.

Getting under your pock-marked and triangle tatooed skin? FYI...RR, Suddenlink, etc... give geographic attributes to posters. My UVERSE doesn't. Ask with literacy and I'll tell you the addresss. And yes, if I was to hide, I would be where I was hiding.

Good or bad that is what has occurred.
The only other fact is that whoever is behind those names is.......... they both gave up real easy.
