Gaza's Only Power Plant Knocked Offline

xevioso Re:Radicalization (685 comments)

Ah, so they build tunnels into Israel to circumvent the boycott? As though, coming out the other side in the middle of a field, near nothing but a kibbutz, they will be able to conduct trade and bring food, diapers and other necessities into Gaza? From a field? Are you high?

Perhaps it's a perfect place to end a tunnel so they can send through militants to massacre civilians.

In First American TV Interview, Snowden Talks Accountability and Patriotism

xevioso Re:Actual Facts (389 comments)

You don't know that he lied. The people who produced the document are the ones he exposed. It is not in their interests to show that Snowden was telling the truth, and so if there were other emails with more detailed concerns about NSA policy, they are unlikely to see the light of day.

Why do you folks keep accusing him of lying when a single email has come out? Surely you realize the government does not stand to benefit by affirming the truth of what Snowden has said, and in fact has already accused him of lying. How can you be so silly to think they would actually release the emails Snowden says he sent, even if they have them?

In First American TV Interview, Snowden Talks Accountability and Patriotism

xevioso Re:Snowden's lies (389 comments)

But you don't know that he lied about this. It may have been the case that he, as he said, mentioned this to higher ups in one form or another on multiple occasions and was told to shut up. It's not as though the NSA documents every single CONVERSATION its employees have while working. Snowden was under no obligation to actually document when he had these conversations or what they consisted of.

Study: Stop Being So Cynical, You Could Give Yourself Dementia

xevioso Re: Meanwhile... (153 comments)

But he is superior for being a people person. Loneliness has been shown to be unhealthy. Being around people is actually physically good for you, and choosing to live a healthy lifestyle does in fact make one superior to those who choose to live a lifestyle where they can die sooner.

Study: Stop Being So Cynical, You Could Give Yourself Dementia

xevioso Re:Why? (153 comments)

I believe it is an adjective describing how jelly or marmalade feels on bread?

"I accidentally misplaced my hand while making a peanut-butter and jelly sandwich and now it feels all smarmy."
