Quote:I am not asking for anyone's address.
A name and city would show some guts.
Unless the name is very very common that would indeed give you an address after a short internet search and you do know that I live in Miami as a matter of fact so why do you wish my address and full legal name??
So someone might be able to punish me for having opinions you do not care for as why should I be able to get away with posting unpopular opinions without being punish for doing so?
You might be a citizen of the US legally but you are not a citizen in your heart of heart at least in my opinion.
You would be far more comfortable in a dictatorship that you happen to agree with.
Quote:You should not be subjected to punishment...and you and Olivier know I have not been suggesting you should be.
So, gutless people like you use aliases in forums like this so you can spew your swill without paying any price.
Your pants are on fire Frank as your two quotes does not go together.
LOL there are a lot of things that I do not have the guts to do such as playing Russian roulette for example
Posting a real name when posting unpopular ideas will not likely get you killed in the US but it can cause harm and there is no upside in doing so.
So Frank how about proving to all of us that you have a lot of guts and play a round of Russian roulette?
If you do so it will proved that you have a lot of guts but little brain even if the gun does not fired.
Posting a legal name here is the same as playing that silly game a lot of downside and little up side.
As far as my opinion of Snowden I could only hope I would be as brave and as patriotic as he was and would be willing to throw my whole life away to warn the American people of how our own government was spying on us.
Yes Snowden is a damn brave man and I am at least glad we both are agreeing on that fact.
Oh warning the American people of a danger to their freedoms and following your oath to the constitution is a little bit more important then proving to some asshole that you have guts by posting a legal name on the net,
One does not have any connection to the other.
Guts have zero to do with it as once more as to do so is stupid and some old right wing gentleman is not going to get me to do something stupid by daring me to and or saying if I do not do so I am gutless.
Hell even as a child I did not fall for I double dare you to jump off the roof of
that building and if you do not do so you are gutless.
Come on Frank your tactics are that of a small child.
In fact are you now going through your second childhood?
ou don't have the guts to post using your full real name.
YQuote:ou don't have the guts to post using your full real name.
No I am just too damn bright to do so as are the vast majority of this website.
I guess I will need to do this in so simple of terms that even you Frank might be able to understand now as I have zero desire to post my full legal name and never even dream of doing anything that dumb gut or lack of same have zero to do with it.
The subject of guts would only apply if I did have a desire to open myself up to harassment but did not do so due to fear.
Once more I never have any such desire...........
Now if you can not understand that you are too far into your second childhood for me or anyone else to reach.
footnote I do have a strong desire to defend the constitution so if I did not follow Snowden example in a similar situation then my not doing so would be due to the lack of guts to face the chance of spending the rest of my life in a small cell.
While I dont believe that Frank would such a thing,

I question if Frank would himself annoyed anyone but he might think that if he could get someone to take him up on his dare and give out their name and home city the results would be that others on this website would do his dirty work for him.
