FRANKLY, I LEAN MORE TOWARDS A HERO. THATS THE KIND OF MOVE I WOULD LIKE TO THINK I WOULD MAKE IF IN THAT POSITION. because the majority (in power or otherwise) say so doesnt usually make it right. how else do we find out about this kind of stuff? they clearly want to keep it all on the down low, totally opposite of what a true democracy should b about. we should have a say on how we r spied on. the man spoke truth to power as did mangini btw! bb was warned!
what ELSE SHOULD MANGINi have done, keep risking his rep and future by allowing bb to clearly cheat and maintain his advantage? it isnt as if EM just made it up out of thin air. there was a lot there there, i'm sure had those tapes been released, bb would have been banned from coaching (like NO guy) due to congress and others getting involved and demanding it!
bottom line, i love this country but power is power and absolute power corrupts absolutely. its the threat of folks like snowden that ultimately keeps these guys relatively honest. what else do they do behind closed doors and phony "top secrecy" mandates. most senators who've seen what snowden has revealed have said the info should b public! it isnt like he's selling the stuff for $ or to enemy intelligence. will put bradley manning in this category as well. power isnt about left or right or about GOP or DEms.
power is the bottom line. IRS abuses happened under Dems and GOP alike. ask the anti-iraq war guys how nice the IRS were to them under bushie or pro-marijuana types. each power group just targets different threats to its POWER!
