Edward Snowden is a Boss

There are very few people I look up to.  Edward Snowden is one of them.  His courage is perhaps the most remarkable that I am aware of from my lifetime, with perhaps the exception of the most heroic on the battlefield, and his service and impact for liberty is most certainly at the top of that same scale.

What a great American.  A real patriot.

Brandon Bryant the Documentary: Drones & Deceptions

Michael Moore move over.  Another fat guy is taking your place.  This first documentary production from PYB is worth the watch.  Simply watch the first six minutes and you'll have a good idea whether or not it's worth your time.

Part I just covers the basics of Brandon Bryant's story and then becomes more interesting in the latter half as we see his claims of being jobless, homeless, and physically and mentally disabled while then doing a literal back flip for the camera.

Part II is the heavy lifting and sets the stage for the final part, as it takes a look at accountability and Brandon's commentary on "persecution."

Part III is the dessert.  It is without a doubt, truly fascinating, as it peers into the mind of Brandon Bryant.
