Yeah, but Tsarnaev was not Black, so he probably did get a fair trial.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I can see this both ways. On the one hand, Fiorina is right. Saudi Arabia, China, etc. have despicable human rights records and roundly deserve criticism and boycotts.
On the other hand, Apple is a US-based company and is much more likely to have influence in the US than elsewhere. We should recognize that we need to fight injustice everywhere, but just because we aren't able to effectively fight it in China that doesn't mean we should throw up our hands and ignore it in the US.
What Apple et. al. really should do is ensure that their employees in China are as well-treated on the job as American workers. Not to do that would be utterly hypocritical.
Some Muslims have a religious objection to permitting non-Muslims to live. Who are we to stand in the way of their sincerely-held beliefs?
Leave people alone.
No. They're not discriminating against gays. They won't cater for anyone on a Friday and they won't cater a pig roast for anyone.
If they refuse to cater a gay wedding with Halal food on a Sunday afternoon, then yes... that's discrimination.
Look, I agree that you shouldn't have to bake a cake that specifically celebrates spanking. But if a couple into spanking came into your store and asked for one of your generic cake designs, I do not believe you should be able to refuse them service.
Similarly, I don't believe gays should be refused a generic wedding cake.
Religious people have the right not to have their faith mocked...
Oh really? Perhaps you could provide a citation of the law granting this so-called "right"?
Religious Freedom, or Freedom of Conscience, originally meant that the government wouldn't try to impose a particular brand of religion on the people.
The concept has been abused and mutilated until now it's interpreted as "My religion gives me freedom to trample all over your civil rights".
Bestiality is illegal. Homosexuality is not.
Nah. Quebec bashing is nothing. Post an article about something in Israel and watch what happens...
Taxation, perhaps they could get away with. I was actually referring more the the "blocking gambling sites" part of the article. I suppose I should have been more clear.
I don't believe Quebec has the power to regulate ISPs. AFAIK, telecommunication regulations are the domain of the federal government.
It's one guy with a juvenile sense of humour. I don't get why people are making a big deal of this.
If they don't feel the need, then why do they do it anyway?
I second the Request Tracker recommendation. You need to be a geek to set it up, but not to use it.
At my company, we started out using it for the tech support staff. Since then, I've expanded it to include requests from salespeople to finance for invoice generation, etc. and it works beautifully.
I call bullshit. Yes, sexual violence against anyone is wrong. I'm not disagreeing. But feminism is about equality for women; it's not about oppressing men.
Feminists do tend to preoccupy themselves with women's issues because that's their mandate. Traditionally, men have been in positions of power and traditionally women have been less powerful.
Finally, I call BS on your implication that sexual violence against men is anywhere near as widespread as sexual violence against women. I also call BS on your implication that "feminist culture" is "responsible" for "more rape".
