Pardon Edward Snowden?
2016-09-22 14:52:30
No, as much as I'm all for security and such, it simply boils down to the fact that he did break the law and the unfortunate part is he probably won't be pardoned, which is why he's still in Keiv.

Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?

Feminism and LGBT rights
