Well, what a surprise

We must get that “terrible traitorous whistleblower Edward Snowden” for the crime of informing people what their government does.


Former JPMorgan Chase employee Bruno Iksil will not be prosecuted by the Justice Department, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing a person close to the situation. Iksil is the so-called “London Whale” at the center of the trading scandal that lost JPMorgan, the country’s biggest bank by assets, some $6.2 billion in 2012.

If the government isn’t careful we might start to suspect a double-standard.

Or is it a triple-standard?

In response to the information released by Edward Snowden and resulting public outrage, President Obama has decided to set up an intelligence review panel to assuage fears that the government is abusing its surveillance authority. Unfortunately Obama has chosen General James Clapper, who misled Congress under oath about the NSA, to set up the panel.

Over Easy: The Lavender Ribbon



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
