Not quite. Chernobyl was caused by operators not understanding the reactor's function in low power situations which happened to be during a test to see if the cooling system would work in the time after the core shut down but before the diesel generators were back up. They brought the power levels too low to where the reactor was nearly shut down, then to raise it back up they brought the control rods all the way out creating hot spots. Then when the power came on too strong, the response was to lower the control rods, which in a very hot reactor actually does the opposite- causes a huge reaction.

... Not giving them weapons? As an American Citizen, I'd be serving perhaps 10 years for possessing an M16 machine gun that we were just giving to the Iraqis. When 2nd amendment debates pop up, few people say citizens should be allowed to own tanks, MRAPS etc, but are ok with giving it to a 3rd world country (where many of the Iraqi Army soldiers turned on us as soon as we armed them).

Also there's people that don't like how cameramen video the event. Worst is the NBA. The camera gets caught following the ball around and its tough to see the other 9 players. Or when they zoom in on the ball at its being shot so it fills the screen, but the cameraman isn't good enough to keep it centered and it moves all over the screen.

While that is true, the federal govt doesn't have police powers beyond regulating commerce among the states. General police powers are left to the state.

But NSA doesn't seem to abide by any law, according to this reddit article, they ran a child porn server for quite some time, to catch pedophiles.

how about you pay for your own **** freeloaders. I worked 50hour weeks at a mail sorting facility to put myself through college. Through hard work and saving every penny I made, I paid off my loans in 3 years. Folks in this country.... always wanting someone else to pay for their crap

Govt isn't supposed to have any part in any of this

We can't regulate China, but we can regulate the US companies that do business over there. My company does 80% of its sourcing from China. The companies that we do business with have zero regard for the environment. How come a company here can't pollute when making widget X, but they can buy that widget X from a company that pollutes up a storm (and that storm blows to California).

I hope you are trolling because this is standard interrogation technique used to put any one of the many thugs behind bars. You may think its no big deal to record a movie, but the law says differently. Up to a $250,000 fine, 5 years in prison and a felony. That means no voting for the rest of your life, and you can't own or buy guns.

It's time to boot, do your boot ROMs know where your disk controllers are?
