So when are you heading over to defend the honor of the Yazidis?, since they apparently can't do it themselves?
The answer you're looking for is best stated as an old signature line.
"Bombing for Peace is like Fucking for Virginity."
The point is that if disaffected Islamic youth in Australia are buying the "war on Islam" propaganda, what chance does the U.S. and their allies have in Iraq and Syria?
Anything they do there will only amplify the view that they are modern day Crusaders.
The additional context only bolsters that opinion.
From the Sydney Morning Herald article:
"I dunno, I got a lot of anger," he said. "It's a war on Islam just because we grow our beards. They want to label us as a terrorist, or supporters of IS, whatever, that's up to you."
As long as the more stable regional powers refuse to directly confront the extremists, it becomes very easy for this view to continue.
Of what use is a paywalled article?
The instant review stations are in view during some of the most tense situations of a game, with a lot of attention.
I don't know what channels you're watching the game on, but where I watch, the review station gets a couple of seconds of camera time at best. It's actually rather rare to see the booth at all.
Most of the on-air view is the replays themselves, with the announcers giving their interpretation.
Perhaps an app that puts the current time on the face of the watch?
Because that ought to be enough for anybody!
If you're that concerned, you are cordially invited to get your buddies and some guns and head over there yourself.
I'm sure you'll be able to distinguish between the ISIS fighters and our allies.
Show everyone how a "Real 'Murrican" takes care of business.
I wonder how many of those who are up in arms about letting services like Uber and Lyft market their services would allow commercial hardware and software companies to make changes to GPL licensed software without attribution or sharing their modified source code?
Or should Apple support my home built PC if I put OS X on it? If I paid for the OS, the vendor should support that, right? Why should I pay extra for their hardware...it's no different, right?
To me, it's simple - if you want to market your services, follow the established rules.
Let's look it up....http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/bill_of_rights_transcript.html
"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."
Since there is no "Right to Travel" listed earlier in the Constitution, it is not explicitly denied here.
Unlike most codes of law in the United States, the Constitution does not generally apply to individual citizens. Rather, the Constitution defines and codifies the Federal government, and is generally accepted to be the limit of Federal and State powers and responsibilities.
Finally, I remember that when I was younger (mind you, this was back in the 1970's), having to provide identification and being subjected to searches before being able to travel was the scope of godless Communists and tinpot dictators.
That we have come to this point is a sad commentary on the United States. That many others not only accept this but actively defend it is even more disappointing.
I'm just giving my opinion, and I've been in plenty of taxis in Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta and elsewhere.
If you don't agree with my opinion, I have no problem with that.
Since the Uber premium services rely on existing limo services, why wouldn't I just go directly to those service providers? Although if I were in a position where I couldn't find one, Uber could potentially be useful in that situation.
Also, it's nice that Uber provides additional insurance, but the point is that in most locations, Uber, Lyft and the rest are still in a legal grey area in which I'd personally rather not find myself.
Again, if you want to avail yourself of the service, feel free.
We may not agree, but I see no reason for the angry invective.
Between this nonsense and the fact that the ride sharing services don't have the proper licensing and proof of insurance, I wouldn't feel comfortable using any of them.
