My problem with this article is the shortcuts to make this judges every life experience fit the narrative. Mainly the paragraph suggesting that he favors NSA expansion because he favored the government expanding social programs to deal with drugs. Logically apples and oranges. LikeIwant more surveillance ifIwant more wall street reform. Hey, the word expansion is in both sentences. sigh. The article even concedes they are “obviously” different before, you know, dramatically unconceding. Silly argumentation onaserious topic.
