Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
He should not be prosecuted for giving his funds, but for spreading his hate speech in public against gays.
And the proper punishment would be: banning him to repeat that or face a heavy fine (yeah yeah free speech lala I hear you, idiot!)
Your going to need to explicate. What "hate speech" are you referring to? My understanding of the situation is that he has never given context to the contribution or his views on the subject.
think about the privacy?!
While the PSTN may be illegally tapped as routinely as I eat pizza, evidence gathered in such a way is not admissible in court. It is only a short matter of time before we likely see our other communications showing up in court without warrants to obtain. With the NSA's data harvesting being public knowledge and law enforcement agencies able to request it there will no longer be an expectation of privacy. Our governement has done a great job labeling all forms of dissent "terrorism" and will stop at nothing to prevent political reform.
This is a very productive post. Thank you for an intelligent answer that will help this person in the future. Teach a man to fish and you feed him forever.
Really the weirdest? If the weirdest is really what you're after I would say an ATM. Those usually run Windows and when I saw one running Linux I was very surprised. But it isn't really that weird to find linux in places that aren't obvious. So much so that now I expect to find Linux if I find a device where I assume there is a high level language used to maintain it (and surprised if it is something else).
A few quick examples of places Linux is gaining ground that may not be obvious to the average consumer:
Citizens (in a democracy) decide on who occupies the positions of power
Oh? And when did the average citizen start deciding who is in the presidential primaries? By the time a politician has enough clout to run, he/she is already entrenched in such a political mud-hole that no winch of candor could pull him/her out. When is the last time a third party had a chance? The options the average person has to vote on are already primed and ready to turn us citizens on one another with our political angst. If given a choice, I would rather vote on a leader than a politician. But I have never had that choice; it's always A or B.
Good luck, sucker!
I see it and am disgusted. People claim we have representation because we get to vote on which shill will get the desk. Truth is, it doesn't matter.
Full disclosure: I am currently wearing a t-shirt that has "I DON'T NEED SEX. The Government Fucks Me Everyday." written across the front.
I think dog and pony show rings a little more true.
How very true. Many Democrats don't like to admit this, but they are the only party to ever vote in favor of slavery. Now the Republicans are labeled the racists. (I am of neither party. I'm just showing how drastically parties change as well as the People's perception of them.)
I think a good deal of the Apple hate came when they stopped innovating and started suing. Then the constant releases to break functionality forcing you to buy new, technically unnecessary hardware and the "you can't modify your hardware" mentality. Apple used to be a very different company at one point.
