If it happened now, it wouldn't be torture even if it didn't save anyone.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

I pay property taxes. Currently they don't support waste and storm water facilities. Those funds come out of my monthly water bill. But the money that I pay in property taxes goes to support schools I've never had kids in, sports stadiums I never go to, and parks I rarely visit. I see the value of paying taxes, even if the money goes for things I'll never use. Because these things make society a better, more liveable place.

Nobody has been able to answer that yet.

I guess that's a question that had no answer.

I thought yours was a rhetorical question.

How about Daniel Ellsberg?

Or Bradley Manning?

It was a rhetorical question, but one from Catch-22:

Quote:
Yossarian attended the education sessions because he wanted to find out why so many people were working so hard to kill him. A handful of other men were also interested, and the questions were many and good when Clevinger and the subversive corporal finished and made the mistake of asking if there were any.

“Who is Spain?”

“Why is Hitler?”

“When is right?”

“Where was that stooped and mealy-colored old man I used to call poppa when the merry-go-round broke down?”

“How was Trump at Munich?”

“Hi-ho beriberi!”

and “Balls!” all rang out in rapid succession, and then there was Yossarian with the question that had no answer:

“Where are the Snowdens of yesteryear?”


I was throwing it out there just to see if anyone would catch it.
