China and Russia don't like other nations interfering on any countries sovereign soil which is near them so they have a vested interest in it.

FTFY. I'm sure China and Russia would get real riled up if somebody invaded Argentina or South Africa. In the same way, the U.S. would get pissed if someone invaded Mexico.

Timothy McVeigh definitely didn't cite his religion as his reason for the bombing. He was anti-government.
The guy in the second link's reasoning was apparently "I just want to take a few pieces of shit with me... just think tho, I'm gonna be fuckin famous [sic]." No mention of religion in the article.

Don't assume that white guys in the U.S. are Christian.

If so you can connect line out to the line in of any computer and record a very pirate-able wave file.

Aren't they working on/already have Stereo Mix-less boards? Or have they just disabled it the latest version of Windows or something.

(Assuming that the output from the headphones isn't crap,

Which it will be. Using headphones as speakers? My god, man.

All these analog solutions will technically work but it seems pretty clear we're talking about lossless "digital" pirating.

Computer game companies are way ahead when it comes to copy protection and there we clearly see that it only requires one dedicated person that works through the binary to disable to protection, even server connected software have been proven breakable.

We can live in hope. The amount of effort BluRay people etc. put into encrypting all their shit the entire way down (JVMs on BluRays, HDMI...) has made me less sure than I used to be that the hackers will always win.

it only requires one dedicated person that works through the binary

The point is not to make the protection unbreakable forever. It just has to be unbroken until the product lifespan has expired. (Although of course if given the choice these guys want the product lifespan to be the heat death of the universe.)

the Crown is regarded as a corporation, with the monarch being the centre of a construct in which the power of the whole is shared by multiple institutions of government[131]—the executive, legislative, and judicial[7]—acting under the sovereign's authority

If anything, this blob would seem to indicate the queen doesn't have much of any real power, which I'm sure is the opposite of what you think it says.

"Elizabeth controls everything."

i never said she does that

And I quote:

Elizabeth II has final say on all important decisions of the Canadian government

I'm not misrepresenting your claims; you went all balls-out, then when I called you on your bullshit you started furiously backpedaling and denying everything.
