The inhumane conditions of Bradley Manning's detention
Hello Janis!

JK> Lol, c'mon, you are admitting you are so far right that obama's
JK> middle-of-the road seems like far-left to you Smile Smile And YES, I am
JK> that far-left Smile

I aint that far right, but for you to say Obama is moderate is insane.

JK> The congress in this country has a GREAT gov't supplied insurance
JK> plan, btw.

535 People Janis.

>>> Yes, a very good thing.

JK> Ha - take it to a place which is unlikely to happen, that makes sense.

You disregarded the other point I made about the govt going to extreme measures
to keep its secrets because of this, Assange wont force any govt to keep less

I will go as far as to predict that in any effort to maintain secrecy, the govt
would withhold information from some whom would have a legitimate need to

JK> Anyway, I must be about the most public person on earth Lol.. Since
JK> 1994, when we started the filegate, my name, address and phone # have

Yet, you fled Facebook..

JK> Time will tell.

You are naive, perhaps too many sugar cubes in the 60's.. ;-)

JK> That's right, push this to the extreme. That's one way to avoid a
JK> discussion .

Have to go to the extreme when dealing with extremists.. ;-)

>> You feel BOA should not have cut WIKILEAKS off, now if you found out

>> just what would your position be?

JK> My bank is HSBC, an International Bank. If they cut off Wikileaks,
JK> I'd probably dump them But given the international nature of my
JK> bank, I doubt they'd be such jerks

Answer the question in the spirit it was asked, you dont have to be literal..

If your international bank refused to stop doing business with NAMBLA, what
would your position be?
