well, pull the plug, the patient is dead-
as a practical matter I have sent a letter of support to Chelsea Manning extolling the virtues of the San Francisco Bay Area, and pointing out her contingent's being chosen as the people's "Best Overall Pride Contingent Award" after this years gay pride parade.
..."The vote for the “Absolutely Fabulous Overall Contingent” was put out to the community on SF Pride's web site. BMSN was up against three other groups: Abada Capoeira, Bay Area Youth Summit, and Mormons for Marriage Equality."
Here Manning can expect to be welcomed the hero she is. I hope she studies here at one of our universities. I'd like to get her picture as Grand Marshal of an upcoming event upon her release.
Then there is Snowden, smarter than Manning, less prone to emotional deficits, and now with the New York Times reporting the previously almost tabloid coverage of the scandal plagued American public institutions.
Congress, Justice, Defense all of them corrupt to its core.
It's about time we hear the truth,
and vote accordingly. It'll take time, and I'm not sure how much of that there is,
but the writing's on the wall.
No more will the little guy in the us be tossed into the fire without at least seeing it first.
Good luck with that...
