No it is not. People on slashdot like to post stuff like this as if it is even remotely likely.

The majority of the American people are sufficiently well-off that there is no way in hell they are going to risk their lives rebelling against the government. It doesn't matter how egregiously the government betrays long as we live in relative comfort we will accept it and come back for more.

I suspect that the most defiant act you are taking is to post derisive comments on slashdot, and possibly download a few files in violation of copyright law. Most of the "revolutionaries" in America are right there with you, buddy.

Maybe you are making reference to the 1%? What of the undocumented unemployment rates? Betrays us? They betray themselves as they print money every six months just to keep the governments doors open. The more I compare what I hear in the US with what I hear from Putin, the more I make the distinction that the voice of reason is over there and though I don't agree with the way he is trying to rebuild the USSR involving the Ukraine, I understand why he is doing it, and his haste in doing so. When it comes to being communist I'd have to say the way things have panned out in the US, the shoe is clearly on the other foot. At the time of the fall of the USSR, they faced the same things the US is facing now and rather than attack their own people they shut down their government, this is a clear difference between their government and this one. These are the things that I drew the conclusion to offer him what my family was working on pre 1964. Even if there were to be regime change in this country, there is no way to reverse the damage done to it, and what that damage will result in.

You are absolutely right.

I do not participate in social networking so I never knew my ex wife had posted that I had threatened her with a gun. Funny thing is, I think she gives herself too much credit as a 115lb weakling to think that I would need to raise the subject matter of a gun to threaten her, in fact I do not believe anything could threaten that shitbag more than the truth. She left evidence of her father's criminal behavior out in Vegas on my PC HDD which I've recently made available on Google Drive nice and handy there for the feds. I often wonder in her mind that I supposedly threatened her with a gun. Was mob was scared? Mkay there princess people skills. Need a little more rope there?

There is that risk that the effects of a black hole could be amplified through a telescope optic potentially sucking the viewer right through the optic so no one would be around to warn anyone. Building this would certainly anger the volcano gods potentially triggering an occult anarchy situation. All hell would break loose starting a tsunami that takes out the entire pacific rim before sucking half the earth through the optic.

Security through obscurity is not security, fox guarding the henhouse applies as well, these also could be elaborated on by the NSA, and being that they author security policy for the rest of the government explains a lot about the latest breach of security clearance information. This is part of a larger picture though, the problem is lack of government accountability. Corporations are pulling political strings, but the corporations got where they are because they got in good with the mob. I say we elect mob family's to run this shindig country, then we'll be hanging the right people when they fuck shit like this up.

The first rule of security is don't put all your eggs in one basket. Like a cloud with multiple users data segmented but under one layer of sandboxed admin privs. If anyone thinks that is a good idea then just ask the NSA about it though that might still be a bit of a touchy subject for them with Snowden. In reality the only credentials that should have access to all data would be the service a backup runs under and the backup operator should have a healthy loyalty based paycheck. These are some old school tactics, but hey this new shit is supposedly better somehow and I'm sure China really appreciated the F-35 JSF plans before the plane was completed. Now if security is not such a big deal anymore then we should be able to sublet positions to H1B visa candidates and collect a free paycheck.

I suppose it is the thrill of this for you, an argument. for me I suppose it has been difficult holding back the nature to respond to your condescending if not belittling comments but I guess that goes with the territory speaking out for homeopathic medicine that is facing demise do to Obamacare being forced upon the US under tax penalty. I am just sharing experience is all. To each his/her own.

Pot/Kettle? Herbal remedies were the basis of homeopathy that has evolved much like western medicine. Too much of just about anything can be toxic, even water can stop a heart. If you really cling to the principles of western medicine then bet your life on it, betting your money might not in your nature, not someone else's life when what is in your book fails.

Actually I would never advise a patient to come off chemo. I rather enjoy hearing about the doctor who told the patient they are dead within at year but have to cope with something else added to treatment that has worked outside the normal mainstream medicine. That will be a doctor that retains an open mind to the fact that there are other answers and can produce better results than what that doctor has been taught do within mainstream medicine. What Indian bloodroot does is attach itself to a cancerous cell and mark it for the body to expel through it's natural processes and it is a bit better about dealing with new cancerous cell division than chemo. It does not matter if the cell is already being attacked or not, it does not fix a cancerous cell, and does not put cancer into remission, it expels it This was developed by native Washoe Indians in a region that is known to be plagued with uranium, and obviously radon gas that decays into the daughters of radon which are 5 times more radioactive than radon itself. Not bad for a 'boneheaded' Indian medicine man huh? But it does work.

Homeopathy basis: a substance administered that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people will cure similar symptoms in sick people.

Homeopathic medicines: In homeopathy, a solution that is more dilute is described as having a higher "potency", and more dilute substances are considered by homeopaths to be stronger and deeper-acting. The end product is often so diluted as to be indistinguishable from the diluent (pure water, sugar or alcohol). There is also a decimal potency scale (notated as "X" or "D") in which the preparation is diluted by a factor of 10 at each stage.

The highly toxic compounds are added to a dilute to control dosage of a potentially toxic compound, garlic qualifies as can be highly toxic but homeopathic medicine has evolved to include substances that are not required to be diluted. Homeopathic medicine has often been referred to as same as 'dietary supplements' because homeopathy has been under attack by mainstream medicine for decades. If homeopathy is to be sent under, it will also take out those that are sheltered under 'dietary supplements'.

I have a former I.T. supervisor that has stage four cancer and was told by his doctor with chemo he has at best a year. Perhaps instead of recommending something I have witnessed work on multiple forms of cancer that isn't 'mainstream medicine', I should send him a pine box on your advice instead? Perhaps send another cardboard box for his widow to live in after he is gone?

Maybe you are right, profits should be more important than life. Maybe it should be legal to be a hitman or a mafia owned for-profit serial killer 'working a lot in blood money'. Perhaps I should pick up and flip his house?

Exactly, and with Obamacare I wonder just how much was spent by big pharma to 'get that done'.

Some say homeopathic isn't the way to go, but what is Chinese medicine based upon? The medicinal use of garlic is awesome in the way it forms different compounds when it breaks down in the body but way to cheep to market, big pharma's gotta hate that with heart conditions; . I've seen doctors tell a cancer patient that they are a gonner, but I've seen Indian Bloodroot turn it around where mainstream medicine obviously failed. There is a large amount of American medicine that is based off organic compounds and that is exactly what homeopathy is about. To each their own unless you like Obamacare forced between your cheeks.
