So you're in favor of having your firearms inspected and having to report to regular training and drills by the Federal Government for owning a firearm?
Nor was it created to be the land of the free. At least for a large minority of its population. Remember the second amendment includes the words "well regulated" even our founding fathers thought there should be regulation. Individual rights must be balanced against the rights of others, and that is no easy task.
Though yes. The product shouldn't be banned just because it has the potential to be used to make a gun. The second part of your argument is valid, but please cut the "Criminals won't do it" argument. It is just a tired poorly rendered talking point.
That's right. Murder and theft laws too have never worked and WILL never work because criminals don't obey the law! In fact all laws are pointless because criminals will just ignore them and they only restrict those who are law abiding.
See any flaws in this logic?
Don't forget to read history and learn how worse it was when a single gas company supplied the whole nation.
I read cyberpunk novels. Things are pretty much on course.
The key as always is what you are using the hardware for determines what type of hardware is best for you.
One thing is also G Glass is only the first and not much of a first. It is just a slight step in convenience for having the camera at the ready and on. Nearly everyone has a cellphone now.
The thing a surveillance state requires two things. Mass surveillance apparatus and a single large entity behind it. What will end up with more likely is a surveillance or sousveillance society. Where cameras and recording devices are ubiquitous but control over them is not held in any single set of hands.
Yeah. They talked about this in Newton's day, Aristotle's too.
All night coding sessions while acceptable in start-ups are a major symptom of a business with major flaws in their development practices. Yes development can be unpredictable but if you are having employees forced to regularly stay-up you are scraping by. It might be nostalgic to say we do our best coding then, but we don't and such practices are inviting failure.
I'm still using a core2 quad and am getting by fine (GeForce 9800 gpu). Sure I don't turn the graphics full up on games but I'm doing alright.
Actually adding more genes to our collective genepool probably would be a very healthy thing for our species. If we can extract ancient dna sources we might be able to make ourselves a bit more robust and the research might lead to helping make other species more robust genetically as well.
The real issue is with the companies' data being in the cloud. Especially if Dell insists that you use their cloud with their devices.
It is hardly the only constitutional out. The consitution is quite clear that the US will always pay its bills. Defaulting is unconstitutional.
Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
If you want to follow the constitution, without adding an amendment, the US will pay its debts.
Which is often a human rights violation in and of itself. Do you have any idea how common schools are? X miles often puts these people out of fair housing. Also this is often applied to offenders whose offence had nothing to do with pedophilia and never harmed a child.
