there was a thread about this last time dark-net markets were discussed on /., there is a law against drug sniffing or any other type of detection method against US postal items, it relates to an unlawful search, i.e. each parcel is the same as a car or home search, unlawful unless probable cause or a warrant.

"It is no more wrong to call piracy theft than it is to call it the same if you tap into your neighbor's cable so that you can get cable without paying for it. "

if i steal cable from my neighbor then his service is degraded and i am depriving him of something, if i copy a movie i make no degradation to the original and thus no harm.

esp since i'm never gonna pay to see the expendables 3, i might watch it for free tho... like when it plays on tv 4000x

""Blaming the victim" is telling a rape victim they shouldn't have been wearing a mini-skirt - they were asking for it. Telling guys to get out from behind the computer screen and talk to women as if they were people isn't victim blaming. It's telling them to take responsibility for their choices in how they interact with the world at large."

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA omg are you serious... this has to be tongue in cheek no?

you don't see any similarity in telling a woman to be aware of her surroundings and how she presents herself to the world and telling me to take responsibility for their choices in how they interact with the world at large is the same exact thing?

yah he's wrong, but close... i guess it's important to study.

it amuses me when people talk about the old Greek this or the original Sumerian that, the only way to get understanding is by God so why should it matter what the original word is thought to mean? as if you could break into God's knowledge with a crowbar, it's silly.

he's saying obamacare is a vast improvement over what we had prior. you have to separate that interjection from the rest of his point.

No wonder people vote for republicans and love fox news, they can't even understand basic communication, just flashing lights and talking points.

if they can make a profit in those companies selling their drugs for prices in other countries, they can make a profit here.

1. Bullshit if you say they are selling drugs here at a higher price so they can make it affordable in other countries. If they can't make a profit, they won't sell it.

2. Bullshit if you say they don't make their money back and then 700% profit. Patents on these drugs last a minimum of 7 years and then the drugs are sold to every single person they can con doctors into prescribing them to.

Drug companies care about one thing, profit, just like any other company. anything they tell you otherwise is just bullshit PR so you'll buy their product over someone elses.

-1 for obvious shill being obvious.

1. Smart people don't buy cars from dealerships, ever.

Don't be emotional and ego driven when looking for job.

2. Would you take a lower offer for a better title?

1.Where do people buy cars then since dealerships are the only (well until now with tesla) legal means of buying new cars?

2. Yes i'd take a better title because down the road that title is worth more at other companies.

An economic group that has far less influence than the much larger minority, based on percentage, of blacks in Montgomery. ""

Are you kidding me? As soon as this bill passed all i have seen on TV/radio/internet is a furious storm of outrage over what is perceived as persecution of gays, the Governor of a state has been forced to publicly debate this bill within days of it's signing... a plethora of sanctions have been instantly levied against the state of Indiana.

How many years of protests and murder happened over civil rights of blacks in the south?

The power and force of the LGBTt community is incredibly powerful, swift, and easily harnessed to put pressure or punishment against any perceived injustice to that community.

"I would rather not repeat those times with blacks replaced with "fags."

Well i guess that's the point of insisting homosexuality is not a choice, because if it was a choice then it wouldn't quite be on the same moral high ground as skin color would it?
