    1. Ok, I know I'm a broken record, but

    I’d love to have a list of those crimes, but why do I have to sit through a 30 min. video to get it?

    I realize these people need to make a living, but different people take in info in different ways . . . .

      6. Precisely.

      "The NSA’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything. There would be no place to hide."  Frank Church "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frederic Bastiat, 1848

    7. I took the time to watch the whole vid & believe me, it's worth it!

    And you know why?  Because Jimmy Dore has a CONSCIENCE and speaks of these horrors that our government has committed – and that Chelsea Manning revealed – with appropriate emotion, anger and outrage.  Just reading this stuff is one thing.  But having a person of Jimmy Dore’s humanity chronicle these revelations helps to break through our numbness.  And who among us has not felt numbness – disempowerment, depression, the need for escape, the need to forget and “get on with our lives,” if not nausea and vomiting – when confronted with the realities of our government and the horrors COMMITTED IN OUR NAME?

    The wonder of Jimmy Dore is that he keeps the flame burning!  He focuses on what’s important and re-awakens us from the sickness of it all, from the despair of it all and from our self-involvement, which is perhaps necessary, given the load we have to bear, but cannot be permitted to dull our consciences and put us back to sleep.  Yeah, do get some sleep, friends.  Do take care of yourselves, especially if you are involved in actively opposing war, torture and massive theft.  It’s not all up to you!  We need to deal with this collectively – as Bernie Sanders so often said.  You can’t do it alone.  If you freak out or go numb, take a break.  And then listen to this great human being, Jimmy Dore, speak the truth – that beautiful rare thing.

      8. I wish we could rec posts

      And you’re right, it’s easy to get numb to absurd level of evil we are seeing…but I think for some of us the numbness comes from trying to stop this at the time and having been stabbed in the back by the people who were supposed to be representing us.

      11. I appreciate that.

      It’s just that for me, the emotions can be overwhelming, so I prefer to take in the facts in in as succinct and cut-and-dried a form as possible (and focus my energy on trying to deploy them somehow).
