The problem is that it becomes a clear case of blackmail when he demands money to remove the information.
For one to believe in the fallen angel one has to believe in God.
I'm assuming these are LaVeyan Satanists (most Satanists are). They don't believe in Satan. They don't believe in the God of The Bible either. They believe they are their own god.
Cults and fantasy worlds created by literature do not have any recognition under law as a religion and therefore this doesn't stand a chance in an educated society.
In all seriousness, the description "fantasy worlds created by literature" could readily be applied to Scientology, which does have recognition under the law. I'm not sure if this means the US is not an educated society or what but I think even if you demanded a Flying Spaghetti Monster statue, which is overtly a parody religion, it would be hard to find a definition of religion that didn't include FSMism, and did include Christianity.
We proved getting a spaceship to the moon was possible in the 1960's. The prize is for doing so in a cost effective manner.
In most countries, such a provision would most likely be illegal.
5 minutes on Google confirms that people do seem to typically get refunds when this happens.
Anything else I can help you with?
yeah, fuck you political-correct-hollydays-morons
Nobody cares if you call it Christmas. People who say "Happy Holidays" just feel it's extra nice to include other people. Nobody is forcing you to. So relax! Christmas is a time of happiness and joy.
And digital STBs are very cheap and will make a fine Christmas present.
Dead sure, ask yourself what a CIA agent would be doing in Assange's bed.
What makes you so sure she is a CIA agent? We don't even know who she is. The rumour is tat she worked for an organisation that was linked tothe CIA.
Last I checked, they said it was confirmed it was a good consensual sex.
Last I checked it wasn't.
If it was staged, they would have staged a more serius crime
If they wanted to extradite Assange they would have extradited him from the UK. Extraditing him from Sweden requires the UK to consent.
If there was any possibility of death then neither the UK nor Sweden would extradite.
If he is guilty of sexual misconduct, then the victims are not getting justice. Is this fair? How sure are you that these woemn were spies?
a paid spy
Well, yes. Msot spys are professionals.
I'm personally more concerned about the world getting the US habits of spying, intruding on privacy, infringing of the flow of information, breaking international laws and so on.
Yeah. That worries me as well. But what does that have to do with Swedish laws on sexual misconduct?
How would you call a woman who sleeps with you because it's her secretive assignment?
I'd call her a spy.
Who uses a condom argument to get you punished with a perspective of the capital punishment or eternal imprisonment which is the same after they they've done with you in Sweden and extradite you to the US?
I'd call her an incompetent idiot who should be fired as a spy if this was the case. Why can't Assange be extradited from Britain?
Remember how Manning was victimized in prison?
Yes. They didn't need to fabricate any evidence there. She's guilty as charged.
He's no saint but he's helped the US troops withdraw sooner from the bloody war in Iraq thus saving your money (war is expensive) and the lives of your compatriots (no money can pay ).
Perhaps. What does this have to do with Assange's sexual activities?
I don't see a hint of gratitude.
Because we're not talking about Manning's activities. We're talking about Assange.
And your concern about the condom is low by comparison. Pull yourself together.
I'm more concerned about the allegations that the US can't come up with a decent smear campaign. Chelsea Manning's activities don't really have anything to do with Assange's activities in a case that is, at best, tangentially related.
Sure, she's probably right, but there will be some chance results that will have the same statistical properties and she can't prove that this wan't one of those flukes. Sometimes the guilty get away with it.
