Hong Kong Welcomes Edward Snowden to the Neighborhood

There are 95 comments on the The Atlantic story from Jun 18, 2013, titled Hong Kong Welcomes Edward Snowden to the Neighborhood. In it, The Atlantic reports that:

It may still be early in Edward Snowden's attempt to find safe haven here, but a new poll and a weekend rally demanding that the local government protect Snowden indicate that the people and government of this semi-autonomous region of China may be taking a shine to the 29-year-old whistle-blower.

I asked you that question to see how far to the looney bin you are and your continued reluctance to answer is a diversion.
As for your other two, pick any post you have made about the court approved programs and your failure or denial to understand how they actually work. Yet you repeat what the conspiracy nuts are saying as a fact when it isn't.
Carry on.
and i called you a crazy birther nut. If that doesnt answer your question then your going to feel a lot dumber if i have to actually explain it to you. lol

and again, please point to any post where i am denying the legality of the spying apparatus. Any one post...

Look, those that believe every conspiracy theory tossed out there like you guys have been doing about the NSA should also believe all conspiracy theories since they are all crazy ideas. That includes chem trails, big foot, Area 51, birthers and whatever is tossed out there next. I put you all in the same basket because you all belong together in the looney bin.
You would have to be a total idiot if you thought all this time everything you did online was private. Did you think that?
Please point the the conspiracy we are all pointing out? Please show us all these other conspiracies we are pointing at? Seem you are the one whom is originally and constantly brought it up. Who is the looneytoon again?

you god damn retarded. Have you heard of this thing we have now called google? You type words into it and it gives you back information like this:

https://www.google.com/search...

Yes, DHS has the authority to seize any electronics within 100 miles of the border. That makes up the majority of US citizens. You were saying retard?

BIG JAP!!!

No one has given up any rights. You conservatards will believe anything you are fed. Why not think for once in your life? Yes, you believe in Chem Trails.
Guy you are a trip let me tell you. First off I'm not a right winger or left winger. I have loyalty to my ideals not any politician or party. I think your party loyalty is clouding your ability to think openly. I sure you hated Bush's overreach and war crimes as much as I did. So why no criticism of Obama's same behavior? It wasn't right 10 years ago and still not right regardless of who is in charge.

I don't have a party. I vote like the majority of Americans, I vote for the lesser of the two evils. I voted for Reagan, twice, and for Clinton , twice.
When the right wing goes on a rampage with unreliable claims to get the weak minded riled up they are not helping America. They do it for the benefit of their party. Seeing through the smoke and mirrors is good. I see tabloid style headlines that are proven to be crap as time goes by but do you think that makes headlines then? It sure did when the bogus claims come out.

Both wings are guilty of misleading and fear inducing the public. The reason the right wing's BS doesn't make headlines as much as the left's is because they are buddy buddy with the remarkable small group of people that own most media outlets. Other way we might disagreed but the argument we been having is good exercise of our first amendment rights. More people should argue, thats how we as a people get things done.

I don't think Snowden leaked anything that would put anyone's life at risk. I think he's been demonized by the government because they really...really didnt want Americans to find out what they've been doing.

Have they really prevented terrorist attacks using the data they've been collecting on US citizens? If you believe what the government tells you and wants you to believe then I guess they have.

I believe that a certain amount of freedom and liberty must be sacrificed for the good and safety of the public. I also believe that a certain amount of safety must be sacrificed if we wish to keep our freedom.

The following refers to the ABOVE:___

----------

People of the world do not have any belief in the US system by hacking and spying on world people.
US asking the Snowden extradition is beyond a difficult task BY SAYING THERE WILL BE NO DEATH PENALTY, and it is ridiculous to call on extradition of Snowden and try to bother and inhibit him going to any country.

US HAS LIED ABOUT MANY THINGS BEFORE, INCLUDING WMD of Iraq case.
BY the world definition, Snowden has not done any wrong.
To this time, if Russia would extradite Snowden, it would become insane and crazy.

BESIDES, RUSSIA DOES NOT HAVE EXTRADITION TREATY WITH US. IF RUSSIA WERE TO DO SO, IT MUST BE SO DUMB and STUPID.
The world will BACKLASH and SCOLD RUSSIA INSTEAD IF SNOWDEN IS EXTRADITED and Russia will become unpopular.

Because Snowden is more popular than most anyone else, attempt of US to extradite Snowden is non-productive, will be backlashed and scolded, which proves another stand by being against the world and world people, AND THAT IS VERY WRONG AND BAD of US.

NSA is basically unconstitutional to the doctrine of World Constitution, to hack and spy on people on the planet, as NSA demonstrates the subversion to the whole world of people's privacy rights and liberty freedom.

NO spy agency can engage any more in hegemony to threaten world public, as the NSA IS, that it has undermined the dignified business of human rights value of liberty privacy of the people worldwide.
