      It's too bad that the F.B.I. succeeded in getting these guys. It seems like the F.B.I. finds it quite preferable to go after good guys rather than the bad ones, lately. The guys in question were doing us a favor but then again, the Russians had their K.G.B., too!

      Thank you, injusticeforall. Nothing could be closer to the truth but I guess that's the way our "wonderful" system works. Washington D.C. is rife with corruption!

    Hiding behind the veil of doing good for society, these guys are just breaking the law. Simple. On the other hand, when they attack corrupt politicians, politicians bent on taking away our liberties and greedy corporate goons they become modern day Robin Hoods. Outside the law? Yes. Deserving of punishment? Yes, and they would agree with that, but hopefully this will awaken us to our responsibility to protect our freedoms and liberties from corrupt politicians and greedy corporations.

      Sean, you must realize that the U.S. in becoming less and less of a democracy as time goes on. The MIC(military-industrial-complex) has become so powerful that it now controls the majority of our politicians on Capitol Hill and the White House as Pres. Obama has comprimised all his moral principles and does everything the MIC tells him to do! These so-called "hackers" are trying to bring that to our attention!

    DATELINE Los Angeles, 2020. (API) With unmanned drones now keep the streets of LA safe, we can all be thankful that the drone control panels are Playstation controllers. Pat yourselves on the back for supplying the corporate fascists with their mindless squadrons of well trained youth. Yes. They WILL shoot you by then. that's how mindless and trained our youth's are becoming.

  12. Princess Di was used

    The royal family's children's eyes were beginning to grow too close together ike Charles and his distant cousin George Bush's eyes. So Lady Di was brought in to straighten-up the family dna a tad.

    I only wish that the FBI would arrest all these dirty-minded Tea Partiers here for posting their nasty, profane and meaningless comments on this web page. Such profanity needs to be outlawed here and now!
