Popcorn Johnny: Ivo Shandor: Bullshiat. Why else would any European nation care whether or not Snowden happened to be flying through its airspace?

Because they don't want to get involved, it's really not that hard to figure out.

What is so hard to figure out that forcing a plane to land is 'getting involved?

Some Bass Playing Guy: Aigoo: The story is the fact that we have no civil rights

What's absurd is the idea that we have no civil rights

Wait, you're right. The jury did find the guy who protested outside of Bank of America not guilty.

What's absurd is that he was arrested and charged to begin with. For protesting. On a sidewalk. With sidewalk chalk. Which is washable. Amendment 1

What's absurd is that you now need to state audibly--likely on a recording (which it's not legal in many places for you to make)--that you are availing yourself of your Fifth Amendment rights.

What's absurd is that you can be searched, and your belongings seized, during travel within your own country--whether that travel is by plane, rail, or personal automotive vehicle (yes, the TSA operates on the highways and can stop and search vehicles). Amendment 4

What's absurd is that your phone calls, e-mails, the contents of everything you do are subject to being spied on by the government. Amendment 4

What's absurd is that your rights to trial by jury, to know the charges against you, to not be detained indefinitely without charge, and to not be held to answer for capital crime without indictment by Grand Jury can all be removed at the President's whim--and have been for American citizens already, who were summarily killed on the President's orders (Amendments 5, 6, and possibly 8, considering one of those citizens was a child who had done nothing wrong except to be in the wrong place at the wrong time).

What's absurd is that you can be arrested and/or beaten for protesting on a city street within the United States--a right guaranteed by the First Amendment.

What's absurd is that an individual who has no legitimate legal reason (violent felony, restraining order, mental illness) to prevent them from purchasing a firearm should be concerned even the slightest about their ability to do so--now or ever--in the United States when that right is guaranteed by the Second Amendment (go learn some word etymology and history--well-regulated in the late 1700's and early 1800's meant well-maintained and functioning properly. Shall not be infringed meant the same thing it does today--shall not be impeded or encroached upon in any way, shape, or form).

What's absurd is that members of the press are being spied on and charged with crimes for doing their jobs. Amendment 1

I'm were saying? If the systematic destruction of the Bill of Rights--which are our primary civil rights--doesn't concern you, I don't know what to say except that you are the problem. Enjoy living in the police state that they are trying to build. You do not know history, so you do not recognize it repeating itself and I feel very, very sorry for you.

FuryOfFirestorm: The hardest parts were getting a condom big enough for Snowden to fit in and stuffing him into a pregnant woman without killing her. After that, it was all smooth sailing from there.

He should try renting Octomom's womb. He might fit in that.

/need brain bleach now for that visual
