Oh no! We're going to cause global warming on Mars now!

Fat chance on that, this country hasn't done anything really the right way since they whacked JFK and killed his original space program. Furthermore I highly doubt that the Mars gig is actually going to happen, aerospace is being privatized and this means corporations cutting corners, and that trip I sure as shit wouldn't want to buy a ticket for nor would I get on a craft at gunpoint. After they have actually reliably created airplane style access to space to reliably test zero G propulsion systems and have a working solution, then space travel might be within reach, the reality is things have only gotten worse for that. I'd wager the Russky's will do it first, the world will have to get past that thing of wanting to use the He3 on the moon for nukes rather than zero G propulsion systems.

I.T. is the field that is splitting hairs when it comes to privacy and security, if TOR beats the NSA someone gets fired or their budget cut, not really the folks one wants to scorn and the people know it. So innovation is dead there. I think the last statement in the "Lord of War" holds true, "Never go to war with yourself", kind of late now though a decade later ya think?

For starters, its definition of "intrusion software" that originally was meant to stem the effect of spying software such as FinFisher and Hacking Team, has also apparently snared many penetration testing tools. Also, despite the Commerce Department's insistence that vulnerability research does not fall under Wassenaar, researchers say that's up for interpretation.

Because nobody wants to piss off military force, that being the NSA because they will be put out of business and they know it. Already to many security related businesses that actually conceptually cared about security has had to shut down as a result of fear of previous interpretations of the law made by these military forces. And ya'll thought it was just the airline industry was fuxored.

Paranoid, much?

Those that would mistake paranoia with basic observational skills referencing events over the last 60 years are likely be on some type of 'agenda'. What some call paranoid, others are calling it 'having a big mouth', but you don't see that part now do you?

An economic/social collapse is what those in power need to roll out martial law and complete the final stages of the "fundamental transformation of America" to a police state.

They are going to get it because it is the desire of those in power, CIA analysts have come forward now stating that the "3rd world depression is no longer avoidable". I think world depression is a bit on the dramatic side though, I think the rest of the world is likely to contain it to the US/UK. Rusky/China have been getting cozy for a while now and getting in good with Saudi for oil and our dumb ass's keep printing money to keep the gubbmints doors open stressing the Saudi deal dating back to '71. I think what they are trying for is an economic reset of the world books, but I don't think China is going to go for that.

Hot air, nothing compared to the US self imposed brain drain caused by fucked up policy, gamed and broken system. If they don't want to see things that are better in the hands of other countries then they should rethink the way things have been going in the US for the last 60+ years. The policy of 'keeping the people stupid' is not going to produce a superior product in any sector anyway so where are these idiots coming from on this?

- that one of the biggest source of problems happens to be >o?the government of the United States of America

Actually, Corporations that got in good with the mob run the government, and neither have much use for the law aside from what money they can manage to make off of it. Take at look at the TPP deal where corps can sue the government now, and the mob has been manipulating the court room since the 30's that I know of. Can anyone say '91 Naples Italy? Going to get real messy if it is ever going to get better, the way things are going that will be post collapse...

Sure, more little dollars for everyone! Anyone bother to think of the ramifications involving this country printing money every 6 months just to keep the governments doors open? They call it hyperinflation and raising minimum wage is a component of that. Want to see where that road goes? Take a good look at South Africa.

If you want population control, don't kill people. Control births in a humane way.

Not my idea, nor would a dark political agenda be my chosen method. I am in favor of NASA's budget other than the financial state of the country that over a decade of defense spending has left us with.

Factorials were someone's attempt to make math LOOK exciting.
