"It's not irrational to consider a pressure cooker and propane tank parked near the US Capitol to be sufficiently unusual as to merit further investigation"

Well though that may be you are missing a pretty important point. They didn't investigate; they blew the fucker up. If they had investigated the (non) story would have been: Cops see a crock pot, investigated, and determined that they were just paranoid morons and no actual explosive device was present!.

At least you have finally made clear the source of the problem here. You've read the entire story, and still have no idea what actually happened! That certainly explains all the idiotic ramblings you've spouted of late.

When someone starts bombing civilians we have passed pretty clearly by the "ideological" into the "corporeal". I can guarantee you if ISIS / Al Queda were sitting in their corner of the world spouting their ideology at the top of their lungs we really wouldn't care. They are fair game not because of their ideology but because they go beyond having a belief, to trying to force it upon others with violence. It is the latter, and not the former, that absolutely makes it OK to wipe them out entirely. They have literally exclaimed that they will kill us if we don't kill them first, and then acted upon it. See the difference?

"Red Hat has been making a lot of peculiar decisions to replace standard Linux components, with inferior Red Hat components. Now we have systemd, ..."

Dear mentally challenged individual. It has apparently not come to your attention, but systemd is used by almost every major Linux distribution on the planet. Isn't it strange that all these companies made that same peculiar decision. Clearly they didn't consult you or they would have known that systemd is a Red Hat product!

Tell us more about this war going on in your head!

"f Red Hat's propriety solutions."

Yes, Red Hats proprietary Open Source solutions! Congratulations, you just announced to the world that you have been reading Slashdot for more than a decade (See his SlashID Number for those following along) and still don't know the frigging difference between proprietary and FOSS. Bravo. I don't think I could come up with something that phenomenally stupid to say if I spent weeks at it!

I'm not really convinced that you can completely undermine the Linux community and produce a product that lets people point at it and say to the uninformed: See that? That's Linux (i.e. Ubuntu). See, Linux is a clusterfuck mess just like Windows! and still be considered a good "netizen"

Holy shit. Talk about rambling on about nothing. I'm sorry you are butthurt to find out that you live in a police state. I understand your denial. Soon will come the bargaining, but eventually you will pass through to the final stage of acceptance to the point where you realize you've been duped and while the illusion of freedom is indeed better than "The Caliphate", you are none the less living in a police state with terrorists at the helm. I'm sorry for your loss.
