Comment Why admit your music is torture? (Score 1) 271 271

They are admitting listening to their music is torture!

I do take issue with the US Government though, if they wanted to use music to torture they should've used Justin Bieber, and he's Canadian too.

Would've been far more effective.

Obama is doing what needs to be done because Congress is gridlocked due to "adults" throwing tantrums such as shutting down the government and never compromising and because a large number of people in it are opposing Obama every way they can because he is BLACK!

(Don't tell me racism has nothing to do with it, because it DOES!)

Comment Residential picketing is disgusting! (Score 2) 692 692

They may have a point, but picketing a person's home is disgusting.

Really harms the legitimacy of someone's position, and is a terrible invasion.

Really needs to be illegal. I'm pro-civil liberties, but stuff like that should not be tolerated, and should be a felony for repeat offenses.

Disturbing someone at home because you don't like the implications of the technology he works on or the fact materials for it are mined in the Congo or whatever (bet the protestors own iPhone or use other tech that needs minerals) is frightening. Not only gov't can have a chilling effect!
