Fugitive document-leaker Edward Snowden announced Friday that he is submitting a request for political asylum in Russia, where he has been stranded at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport since June 23.

Eventually, the 30-year-old former contractor for the National Security Agency said in a meeting with human rights activists and lawyers, he still hopes to be granted asylum in Latin America.

So where is this 29 year old’s balls? If you are 29, you should have balls of steel, not going to some foreign country.

He should be in the US, spending his time MEMORIZING THE US CODE, so he can rattle it off in court and in front of Congress, RUINNING CERTAIN PERSONS CAREERS.

To: what's up
Has your neighbor, you or anyone you know been harassed by snooping?

What right does the Government have to do the snooping with no probable cause in the first place? That's a clear 4th Amendment violation.

If you must know, each time I have to go to the airport, yes, I am harassed by snooping. There is no reason to treat each and every person as a common criminal.

Do you like being treated as a common criminal?

Post nasal drip, frequent swallows, and a runny nose are common symptoms of someone that snorted cocaine.

They are also common symptoms of allergic rhinitis. If you don't know what that is, look it up and maybe you won't be as ignorant as you are now.
