    Why doesn't he write a letter to Santa Claus? That wish list will be fulfilled before this one.

    What ever happened to the traditional concept of civil disobedience? I was taught that civil disobedience included being willing to be punished for the disobedience. Perhaps Mr. Snowdon and the rest of those in his age bracket should read Henry David Thoreau's essay On Civil Disobedience. Currently the phrase "man up" comes to mind when I think of Thoreau's advice.....

      Snowden is a criminal and a coward. I am in the same age bracket as he, except I am a proud Veteran. There is nothing noble about what he did, and he did not inform me of anything I didn't already know. He basically told people who want to harm U.S. citizens to have face to face conversations. Snowden is a douchebag who was looking to be famous, even if it was in a bad way.

    If Snowden was Chinese, the US media would be all over the place. The US government would be quick in granting asylum to him and probably he would be given some "freedom" award . This would have been another example "human rights abuse and intrusion to the lives of its people" by the Chinese government. It is ironic. The Chinese government must be laughing as we speak.
