Most of the murders by police occur in the cities, where gun control is tighter.

Because of cheap guns purchased at places like gun shows with little to no regulations.

Don't use this issue to plug your oft-discredited support of fascist gun control policies.

Fascists DGAF about ammosexuals. The Deep State wants to record everything you do, not take away your toys.

The US is a Republic, not a direct democracy.

He didn't say it was. If you think Republic and Democracy are incompatible, you don't understand either term.

The US is an oligarchy in rhetoric only, in reality it is a republic in which corporations can't vote but citizen can. Election still determine the composition of Congress and it is Congress that makes the laws, not corporations, even if corporations can and do influence the contents of various laws.

What kind of dumbfuckery is this? The bank bailouts alone make a very bad liar out of you. The mandate to purchase for-profit health insurance further pulls back the curtain to reveal that you've put on your clown shoes.

No. A free society mandates that the government be accountable. That requires the public to have some knowledge of the acts committed by the agents of said government. When the government must report to its citizens is a matter of debate.

And how do you propose to have this "accountability" if the actions are kept secret? You seem to be contradicting yourself.

Every dollar taken away from a citizen to be spent by the lawmakers and bureaucrats, robs the citizen of his freedom to spend that money the way he would have chosen.

Civilization costs money, so why don't you guys just come out and say that you only want it for the rich and the bourgeois. The proles can all move out of their three bedroom apartments into Philippine-style shantytowns. No more public roads for them, nor education nor drinking water that can be used without boiling. Libertarianism = sociopathy + willful ignorance + greed.

Yeah, and so is the Postal Service â" despite raising its prices several-fold

Inflation. Google it.

Why can't those bridges and tunnels be privately owned and compete with each other?

Why don't you pull your head out of your ass and read up on the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Because you aren't going to get competition, you're going to get consolidation and monopoly rates. Standard Oil and railroad barons, Google them too.

Complete and utter bullshit. Plagiarism does not commit a crime, period. Academic violation, yes. Institutional violation, yes. Intellectual violation, yes. Probably a workplace violation in some cases (though typically only if you create content for your employer intended for public consumption). But criminal violation? No, no, no.

That's easy enough to get around: all a prosecutor has to do is allege a Terms Of Service violation - like copying said code using the school's internet connection - and threaten you with prison....just ask Aaron Swartz.

And that means you're being willfully obtuse. In a representative democracy, explain why the party that gets the minority of the votes in a state ends up with the majority of the seats.

These districts weren't etched on tablets from Mt. Sinai, they're drawn by partisan ideologues, aided by software designed to screw over the opposing party as much as possible.
