@30: How big of an ego must you have to think that anyone who disagrees with you is a troll? Or to think that you alone are allowed to express viewpoints in a comment thread?

What is ironic is that trolling is about derailing a comment thread, which you are accusing me of for staying on topic, whereas you dodged an on topic question to throw a childish insult-laden tantrum. So well trolled, I guess, because know we are just talking about your little tantrum.

@28: Please do, if it stops the whining.

@25: When did I say she did not serve time or take responsibility? The point is that there were real life victims of what she did, victims that did not need to exist if she took a moment to actually view the documents she was leaking. Or, I don't know, just release the stuff relating to war crimes.

Personally, I do not feel that "heroes" put innocent people's lives at risk without their consent for their own ends, but to each their own.

I got the answer I was looking for from your complete refusal to address the actual question though, so thanks.

Oh, and god forbid people disagree with you on the internet. Grow up.

@23: Are the many Afghans (who aided US forces) who Manning put in danger with her blind data dump just haters, or do they just not count? Should they have had a say if their own lives and safety was put at risk, or was it ok for Manning to put their lives and the lives of their families in jeopardy for her own ends?

Just wondering how this qualifies her as a humanitarian hero, unless of course you just think Afghan lives don't really matter.

Manning's sentence was in now way over the top for committing espionage, people tend to mix her up with Assange and Snowden who leaked documents, but could never be charged with espionage. Leaking documents/whistleblowing is not the same as espionage, and everything becomes different once you factor in military vs. civilian.

That being said, if commuting her sentence is the only way to get her out of torturous solitary confinement, so be it. Better a criminal go free early than be tortured by the government.

But it would be better if we would just stop torturing criminals.

@28: No, I just find it odd that even in a political argument, the go-to for stupid people is "well, I bet you're fat!"

I just think it is strange how consistent it is. But I guess a childish lack of imagination should be expected to some degree on a comment thread, and I guess being fat does seem like it makes a person a failure, if you never matured out of middle school.

Why is it that when liberals make fun of conservatives who are trolling here, the go-to is that they are unemployed and/or eating a lot of fast food and getting fat/developing diabetes?

Just something I have noticed, and always wondered about.
Jan 16 Theodore Gorath commented on Seahawks Season Goes Careening Off The Road In Atlanta, Is Now Over.
Oh, and yelling at reporters is what it is, but Bennett also tried to gouge Ryan Schrader's eyes out after a play, and they once again tried to rush the victory formation and started fighting after they lost. Why do the Seahawks play dirty and throw such childish tantrums every time they lose a big game?

I don't know why people are even talking about Marshawn Lynch, but the obvious flaw with the team is its refusal to upgrade the offensive line. Maybe you can get away with it as long as Wilson is 100% and young, but eventually you have to protect the man and devote some resources to the O line.

It isn't pretty, but those fat boys are what drive the offense, not flashy pass catchers.

@17: Haha, yes, those mean streets of lily-white, milquetoast Seattle. I hear those MS programmers are real nasty when they get a few wine coolers in them.

Shit's real, yo.
