No, Snowden chose Russia's airport for a connecting flight and never made it out of Russia.

28,000 signatures in 5 days. Gov says it will issue a press conference if it hits 100k in 30 days. Hope it does...although, probably will fizzle out.

allow me to "if-by-whiskey" you.....

If by "far, far to Liberal" you mean a railroad SC trumping states rights, an evolving police state and a tyrannical centralization of education and monetary policy...

then yes....

If by "far, far to Liberal" you mean anything else...then no.

Or, maybe, it's just the anti-establishmentarian in me
