SAN JOSE, Calif. — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was heckled and booed by liberal activists Saturday when she said that Edward Snowden broke the law when he revealed classified information about secret surveillance programs.
Another round of disapproval came when the former House speaker said Americans’ rights to privacy must be balanced with the nation’s security needs.
Snowden “did violate the law in terms of releasing those documents,” she said during a luncheon Q-and-A on the closing day of Netroots Nation, an annual gathering of thousands of liberal activists and bloggers.
Many thanks to my friends at SavePottstown! and Pottstown’s Blog for their kindness and support! Look what has been accomplished by working together, supporting each other and speaking with a unified voice and having a unified vision. It is awesome beyond words.
This is only the beginning. I know my friends at SavePottstown!, Pottstown’s Blog and others in the local media are deeply committed to moving our community forward and making it all it can be. Groups like Code Blue and Citizens For Pottstown’s Revitalization are crucial to keeping the public focused on the tasks at hand.
We are at a fork in the road right now. All things are aligning that will give Pottstown a choice in which direction to head. We can keep the good old boy network, things like they have always been, don’t like change, the same people running the show etc… or we can boldly move forward and propel Pottstown to its rightful place in our region and Pennsylvania.
Change is scary and it is not easy. People will resist, some people will lose their power while others will gain power. If we truly care about our fair city, we need to leave our personal feelings and agendas behind and do what is best for Pottstown.
It is time to move forward and stop living in the past.
