Comment: Re:Not terrorism ? (Score 1) 291

right

not "terrorism in the sense we have become accustomed to"

but still terrorism

what tim mcveigh did was terrorism, for example

maybe unfortunately terrorism has come to mean "done by muslims"

although, maybe we should remove attacks on military installations as terrorism

surprise coordinated violent attacks on civilians for ideological reasons is about as good a definition of terrorism as we can get i think

we call too many things terrorism that are not, and too many things not terrorism that are

exactly

they oppose government when they should be opposing corruption

the idiots are actually helping the corruptors. the corruptors would rather not have anyone to corrupt as an extra expense, and the idiots oblige by insisting on the same: remove the corrupted position, rather than fix it. because they apparently like shoddy, expensive, manipulated, inefficient markets

it's like someone robs the bank because they paid off the bank guard

the intelligent response is to fire, prosecute, and replace the guard, and go after the criminals who paid him off

the idiots want to fire the guard and leave the bank unguarded, and leave it at that: not pursue the criminals who paid off the guard and robbed their bank, their money

it's stunning how stupid and propagandized people can be

I traded in a previous gen iPhone, I got enough to pay for AppleCare for two new phones. That happened on the spot, I don't see how that is any kind of "disadvantage".

You can get more selling a device yourself for sure. But that's a lot of hassle, ant not everyone has eBay accounts.

You can also get a little more selling to other companies that will give you cash for older phones. But not much more, and it takes a little longer than simply getting credit for Apple when your goal is to buy something new from Apple anyway...

Good day to avoid cops. Crawl to work.
