“Quick to judge, are you not? There is much truth to what Joan states. It is true to say that there are a higher number individuals with personality disorders attracted to high positions of power, i.e., sociopaths and narcissists. And as such they are prone to making major errors of judgement, being convinced of their rightness. Interestingly your comment to Joan reflects a bit of narcissim and grandiosity but of course you will not see it.”

“You're not very good at reading. (I read your post twice, just to be sure I wasn't being quick to judge.)

I do not disagree with Joan's opinion.

I disagree with Joan using this article as proof to support her position, because there is no proof to be had in this article.”

“If you look at Bourque's Facebook page it is clear he does not like police officers, and it would appear he is intentionally targeting them. He also appears to have a live of guns. He posted a weird piece today:

“Abusive ad hominem usually involves attacking the traits of an opponent as a means to invalidate their arguments. Equating someone's character with the soundness of their argument is a logical fallacy. Mere verbal abuse in the absence of an argument, however, is not ad hominem nor any kind of logical fallacy.[8”

“Without Snowden there would have been no awareness or serious discussion of the NSA's surveillance. He has instrumentally caused all three executive branches of the federal government to respond and limit the extent the NSA can do its surveillance. Without him, it would be the status quo. Regardless of what you may think of him he has in some ways done us a favor.”

“I agree that a punishment is in order.

I am not on board that snowdens actions will equate to future good for America or Russia.

“If you are disparaging him because he is an American who wants attention, I would ask is it that unusual for Americans to toot their own horns. I think not. Certainly he is narcissistic but then again narcissism is a plague in America. What he did was for the good, but it was legally wrong. He must be thanked profusely but he must do the time.”

“Snowden assessed himself correctly when he said he did what was right and he broke the law. He is both a patriot and a traitor at the same time. This is not an easy concept for most Americans to understand given the simplistic black and white views of so many of the comments here. I am glad he did what he did. I thank him but he should have to spend several years in jail.”

“Government employees can't get to unilaterally decide which secrets this country can keep. Our country can't survive that way, someone would find fault with everything that we do. We would eventually have no secrets which would mean that we would have no security. If he was as smart as he claims to be or the patriot that he claims to be, he would know that.”

“In America the gun has the status of a sacred idol. It's church the NRA, and it's bible the numinous and sacrosanct second amendment. Worshipers of the gun defend it even while others offer up sacrificed bullet-ridden children on its altar. The gun symbolizes freedom and an identity to the idol Worshipers so much so they will die for it. Their rallying cry being "over my dead body". Behind the idol is a fantasy myth that plays itself out over and over again. The rugged individual defending his right to be totally free even if it means standing alone against the collective, nation, or society. It plays itself out in American popular culture in cowboy and gangster movies, and in revering figures like the rancher; think Clint Eastwood. It plays itself out when sick individuals parrot it in real life school massacres. Behind the idolatry of the gun is the love of the sociopath, the only true individualist who puts his freedom first without a thought about others. When the myth is no longer worshipped in America, the gun will become a mere object. Is it not time for America to grow up beyond its pubescent self image?”
