    The proper thing to do with Snowden is to bring him home, grant him amnesty, and hang the filthy little traitor.

    Problem solved.

      Yeah. Who wants to know what our government is knowing in our name. Democracy runs soo much better with complete opacity into the workings of our nation. And boy doesn’t that freedom smell great when combined complete ignorance.

    About San Francisco: the complaint I hear most is not that the techies are evil, but that their existence and ability to pay higher rents than anyone else is forcing working class — especially the working poor — out. There is a concomitant concern that this will lead to a less diverse, less interesting city.
