They tried this in Canada with thermocams. The supreme court hit them so hard on that being a warrantless search that crown attorneys and police services across Canada are still smarting over it. There is precedent, and legal justifications are often carried from other countries on things like this.

Really, I'm leaning the same way but if they question is how stupid do you have to be do to it. As well hotwheels has something up as well, telling mootles to talk to him about something a mod or couple of mods sent him. A lot of stuff flying around the biggest theory is that the ddos against infinite chan was done by a group of mods with his consent. Whether or not that holds true, we'll find out in the next day and a half.

So I guess that means there's no child porn on infinite chan right. In other words, he made it all up in order to slander gamergate and infinite chan. Well that sure make it easy doesn't it? It's always nice when people come right out into the clear like that, and simply prove what everyone already knows. That when someone doesn't have something substantive, their only recourse is slander and libel.

No it's a euphemism for a group of people who whine, bitch and moan because they think they're special snowflakes and would rather the world work on their idea of justice, or promotion. Instead of merit, and law. Note that the UVA scandal is an example of SJW's in action, so was the whining and moaning over Mozilla's president being fired for making donations on his own time to a group.

You can try and label it as the "scary conservative bogyman" but you're only proving one thing. That you actually have no substantial argument that people are right in calling them the bottom feeders of society.

If by "work just fine" you mean wasting energy and costing you more, then you are right.

You mean "smart meter" programs and all that jazz don't cost you money? Damn why has mine gone up 8% in the last 3 years since they brought this boondoggle into being here in Ontario. Well if it's on track(according to the forecasters), then by 2018 the electricity price here will have gone up by 20% oh joy!

I'd rather be led to hell than managed to heavan.
