I'm feeling old. Thanks!
What makes you think our government gives a shit about anything other than grabbing more power? Besides, they'll just lose the email in an unfortunate chain of hard drive crashes, and the firing of the email archive company.
HWY 99 in Northern California. Speed Limit is 55-65, with red lights for crossing from Side street. Yes, it is a four lane highway.
Just because you've never seen it, doesn't mean they don't exist.
Or complain about implied words in sentences.
Yes, I happened to believe it, because I can see it in places like Afghanistan and Iran, where the people vote for tyranny. And have you listened to Gweneth Paltrow saying we should give Obama all the power he needs? These people exist.
And I suppose you'd rather have power vacuums than the US involved in anything, just like Obama. It is great to see how that is working out in places like Ukraine (where the US hasn't really been involved).
Or, as my dad used to say, "In theory, theory and practice are the same. In Practice, they are not"
Oh right, because my opinions aren't finely nuanced, they must be juvenile. Or perhaps I happen to realize that finely nuanced opinions don't actually work in practice.
But It doesn't make the liberals feel good your way. Duh!
Okay, so which is it? People are dying OMG
Either way, the GP is a troll and got caught. Why didn't you say the same thing to the liberal troll? Because you're another liberal troll?
Meanwhile, liberals are afraid of losing the Senate in a month and are lying their asses off with "Republicans want to kill people" by cutting the CDC funding (never mind the republicans gave the CDC more money than Obama's own budget did)
If it wasn't for the shitty USA, you'd be speaking German
I always counter this. Name one country that has had a tyranny when the people were well armed?
1) Everyone is spying on everyone. Don't think that the US is alone on this, we just do it more and better than most
2) That is because Europe is bankrupting itself with socialist policies. Why we want to follow after Europe is beyond me.
3) We haven't "lost" wars. Our problem is that we don't have the stomach to leave petty dictators in place to rule the untamed. We remove them, and something worse comes along and really fucks things up. This has been going on so fucking long, most kids these days have no idea how this shit started. The Shah of Iran was an asshole, no doubt, but he was our asshole. We helped remove him (thanks Jimmy Carter) and now, what is in Iran is much worse. Same with Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Syria
It doesn't take much to realize that some places aren't ready for freedom and democracy. The culture simply doesn't permit it. One can change culture, but it usually takes several generations to do so. The thing about freedom is, the people MUST want it more than anything else, or they are destined to be slaves to tyranny.
The American Revolution started for less than what is going on now. We just have a bunch of pussies and wusses who are too afraid that they might have to give up their iPhones. The same people are hell bent on making sure that if and when it gets "bad enough" to revolt, we are completely disarmed and cannot.
The worst part, is both the (D) and (R) people are slow walking us towards the tyranny we all see coming, in the name of "protecting freedom".
This is because we (society as a whole) don't view cyber crime as a threat. Cyber Crime doesn't hurt anyone (except the victims). Cyber Criminals are in hard to reach places like Russia. There is nothing we can do. So, it exists.
IF and WHEN we view Cyber crime properly, the laws for ID theft will change to put the pressure on those extending credit, safe guarding our banks and otherwise those in charge of data collection for the purposes of commerce. When those changes are made, we'll sacrifice a little bit of convenience for a little bit security.
Proper security is not convenient.
Ebola cannot last in sunlight. It dies in about 2 hours of UV exposure. Bringing people indoors may actually be one of the worst things we're doing.
Only a Liberal would equate getting incompetent people out of office as "people are dying", People are dying because of incompetency in the highest levels of government. Typical Liberal putting carts before horses.
