but this type of gambling will continue
the NFL got a specific carve out for this crap when sheldon adelson and other las vegas oligarch assholes got online gambling in the usa shut down a few years ago as threat to their business (welcome to capitalism! aka, cronyism, but this is what most american morons don't understand about unregulated "capitalism"... also amazing that adelson donates to republicans, you know "free enterprise, get government out of business"... lies the poor morons believe for some reason while they do the bidding of the plutocrats)
too many idiots easily parted with their money for this gamblign shit not to continue
i actually did subscribe to the dead tree service, and will be doing so again. i have no problem with accessing my existing account through the paywall in the interim. if nytimes has a problem with that, they can contact me. i believe you don't have any authority on this matter, as much as it pains your trollish heart
Another guy whose wasting his efforts on a project that will never be picked up by a mainstream distro and thus will die a slow, quiet death.
You can sometimes legislate around them (which is legal), and in theory you can make a contradictory law not subject to judicial review by SCOTUS
thank you for repeating what i said
you can attack the problem from another direction and render the supreme's decision moot
why do you feel a need to disagree with me when you agree with me? the point of arguing is to make a point, not to just argue for no fucking reason
or mangle the url
when i get back a nytimes.com page that is paywalled i go to the url and i
1. chop off the nytimes.com domain upfront
2. chop off the trailing querystring
3. hit enter, you get a google result, the first link always being the story you want
4. follow that link
the referer is now sanitized
so you get the article. you even stay logged in
what are you babbling about? are you trying to support the lame excuses of a neoimperial mafia country?
georgia, ukraine: invaded because they were neighboring weak countries. and russia just takes territory from them. it's living in 1815. the lame ass bullshit excuses for the thugging don't mean one fucking thing, except as a barometer of how many people are ignorant gullible retards who will believe lies
but russia is failing. it exercises it's military muscle because it is all it has left. but tanks rust, you need a strong economy to back up that military. and it's corrupt oligarch petrostate economy is crumbling, putin never diversified it. it alienates all it's neighbors it thugs on, it has no friends except other authoritarian jokes like kazakhstan and belarus. it's society is rife with authoritarian abuse: of the press, of freedoms of speech and sexuality, of political expression and to assemble. it's destroyed all political maturity and replaced it with immature cult of personality bullshit from north korea, centered around a kgb goon. when he dies, there's no mature succession because there's no mature political apparatus
so russia is at an end game. it will revolt and collapse. could take 20 years, could take 5. hey maybe they can make the 100 year anniversary in 2017. russia is a pathetic joke of a country that deserves all of the misery that is coming to it, because russians haven't learned a fucking thing since 1917, apparently. "we need big strong leader" yeah, actual strength doesn't work that way, complete morons
You're just in denial of your own self
"You're" contracts "you are". How do you use "are" without judging what "is"?
As you you refuse to acknowledge, there is no judgement being made.
I genuinely don't understand how you can use the third person of the verb "to be" as an assertion in a non-judgmental mode. A call is being made. This is where I endeavor to point out where the ruler is located, lay it down alongside the subject, and say "yeah, that looks about X inches long". But the key is not that *I* can lay down a judgment; rather, that the *other* person can look at the fact of the length of something, judge for themselves, and grow thereby.
You prefer charades, that's cool. Who's winning?
You seriously think me that intellectually dishonest?
I also prefer a non-violent solution. My fear is that the current 'leaders' will not understand until they are personally in danger. I would like to see a measured violence though. Next demonstration, it would be nice to see when the cops break out the tear gas if they get gassed even harder themselves. Even better if they end up tasered and zip tied to lamp posts.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest was asked several questions about gun control during his press briefing today. Breitbart summarizes his responses, which were more of the same: endless references to "common sense" reforms which are never specified. Earnest wants to keep firearms out of the hands of "criminals and others who shouldn't have them"; so do we all, but how?
