Blame our government, not Assange

  1. To paraphrase congressman Ron Paul, “When the truth is treason, our country is in big trouble.”

    It’s hard to believe that Mitch McConnell is that stupid, but maybe he thinks we’re stupid enough to take his hair brained scheme seriously. Either way, he’s an idiot.

    1. The politicians know perfectly well where the fault lies. WikiLeaks is just another irresponsible, attention-seeking, international media outlet.

      1. I think the way the Wiki software works, the term “irresponsible” would have to indict a consensus of every contributor on Earth. If you aren’t already a registered Wiki (pedia for example) contributor, you could join and put on the “Mitch McConnell” bio page that he is a US Senator who believes US laws determine what is legal and illegal worldwide.” You might be interested to see how the other members of the Wiki community handled your assertion. The knee-jerk Republican members would demand verification. You could supply it. They would demand you re-phrase your statement. You could refuse or accept a modified, less antagonistic sentence. Debate would ensue.

        WikiLEAKS operates somewhat differently, but it still requires a large segment of the public involved in the vetting and redacting process that precedes the publishing of any material.

        Our government seems to agree with McConnell when they attempt to close down Wiki servers, or badger and threaten commercial content providers like “Amazon” in order to prevent the disclosure of it’s own irresponsibility. All they’ve accomplished so far is to piss off a group of freedom minded computer geeks who have the ability to disclose anything they please with complete impunity. If you were surprised that a rag-tag group like the Taliban with it’s 13th century mentality could defeat the worlds penultimate USSR and ultimate USA military… you ain’t seen nuthin yet.

      2. I don’t have it up. Few people use it and it clutters things. For you, I’ll put it back up. It’s just above the comments.

  2. The whole thing is so ridiculous. The U.S. is embarrassed, so raging “patriots” like McConnell are shrieking for heads. Stupid. Inane. And typical.

... and that's my two cents
