Comment: No Rules, Just Right (Score 2) 134

Rules with broad sweeping generalized caveats basically means, no rules. It means WE (as in the people who made the rules) are going to decide on in a subjective way whether we broke the rules or not... and anyone who even knows the most basic aspects of human nature, knows that we as people in general don't like incriminating ourselves, and a government is just a group of people.

So this is basically just lip service from the government, to calm public anger while at the same time giving us the finger.

Many people would love a Ferrari, but they are expensive, so they drive Toyotas instead.

I know of VERY few people who lust after an Android device. They lust after Apple, and buy Android because that's what they can afford. The low end of ANY market is always a lot bigger than the high end. Cars, houses, phones, whatever. Toyota outsells Ferrari by quite a lot too.

oh that's a load of horseS#$T, I know a LOT of people who lust after flagship android devices, The Samsung Galaxy line and HTC models are amazing. iPhones are fine devices to be sure, but they aren't the "Ferrari's" of the world no matter how much your ego would like to believe that.

"The concentration of government power has never produced positive results, rather the contrary. I hope you're enjoying this Orwellian nightmare." "This Orwellian Nightmare" has been going on for as long as governments have been able to collect information. It has nothing to do with "socialism"... The only difference being your indignation is born of someone you disagree with being in the whitehouse. Once it's someone you politically agree, I'm sure you'll forget about all your moral indignation.

"You long for "true socialism" as defined in your texbook. Sorry, has never happened and will never happen."

...and you think that pure unregulated capitalism is going to happen? Pure unregulated capitalism is too unstable for a healthy economy. There needs to be a balance between regulation and unchecked greed. Also since you think America is too "socialist" right now, could you please provide some examples of more purely capitalist societies? I think you'll find the US isn't quite so "socialist" as you'd like to believe.

This is what happens when you have a society that is more interested in punishing people than reforming. It's as if to say "We don't believe you'll ever change, or are capable of changing so we're going to crush you instead." All you have to do is read a forum on any news story relating to a crime to get a realistic view on how people view "corrections" should be carried out.... and we call other countries barbaric.

You will have to forgive my lack of intelligence on the matter, but what are "ners" and how do they relate to the intelligent narrative of the world and its history? Please explain with gadgetry references so that my feeble mind can grasp this child like concept.
