Comment Re:Wrong people to strip (Score 1) 421

japan is a dying country because they have no immigrants. look at the statistics about how many elderly japanese they are going to have with so few young japanese supporting them. the japanese attitude on immigration is nothing to admire, it is in fact something to pity. to see xenophobia so strong that so many japanese would rather their country slowly shrivel and die. it's pathetic sick racist self-destructive and weak. frankly, korean people are pretty much identical to japanese genetically, so the hate against koreans is just moronic

as for your attitude on hard working immigrants, i would like to know your background. if it isn't native american, why don't you fuck off with your ignorant hypocrisy and go to europe. many of the mexican immigrants have aztec mayan and other native american bloodlines far closer to the original inhabitants here, and so as a racial argument that is so popular with social retards like yourself, have more right to be here than you

btw, if your ancestors were italian or irish, they got exactly the same thuggy hysterical racist hate you heap on mexicans

if you endorse civil forfeiture, you really should educate your ignorance of the kind of abuse that has played out with that applied to american citizens. with noncitizens, that abuse will probably get far worse, and just force them to stash their money with mexican mafias. thereby actually creating the crime you and your low iq propaganda tries to pin on these hard working people

I am just waiting for the day we get some leaders with some balls who will completely dismantle the democrat plantation in all of its forms.

the demographics are clear and the nation is trending democratic. so why don't you hurry up and die with the rest of your old knuckledragging retard friends

fighting fights from 50, 100, 150 years ago that were already lost with previous waves of immigrants that are now called "true american"

btw, my WASP ancestors came over in the 1600s to new england. fought in king philips war, being scapled by native americans and scalping native americans

that's my legacy. and so according to the "logic" of you racist mouth breathers that makes me a "real american"

so granted this fake authority by your loser thought processes, i make the following judgment on you and your ilk: a guy 15 minutes off the plane from somalia or bangladesh or ecuador, if they have a positive outlook and a tolerant attitude, they therefore embody the real american spirit and real american ideals, and i embrace them as fellow real americans

rather than some "entitled* racist shitbag who thinks he's special because his bitch mother shit you out on in dirt called american, just so you could begin your life of feeling superior for false, ignorant reasons. i wouldn't want to deport you, so you could ruin some other poor country with your dim brain wattage, so perhaps you could be dumped in the marianas trench or some such, apologies to south pacific nations for the stink of your useless stupid corpse

you're simply not an american in my eyes

i mean that with every fiber of my being

you have no fucking clue what real american ideals are

all you have is whiny entitlement (ironically, considering right wing talking points on that concept)

And he's wrong.

According to Rubalcava, the biggest barrier to carrying out terrorist plans until now has been the risk of getting caught or killed by law enforcement so that only depraved hatred, or religious fervor has been able to motivate someone to take on those risks as part of a plan to harm other people.

No. Because look the times when we have caught the criminal. We cannot stop them from setting off a bomb, but we will catch them after they do so.

So to be a terrorist you have to be willing to die or to spend the rest of your life in prison.

"A burner email account, a prepaid debit card purchased with cash, and an account, tied to that burner email, with an AV car service will get him a long way to being able to place explosives near crowds, without ever being there himself."

But it will not stop him from being found AFTERWARDS.

Because those actions leave traces. And you will be spending the rest of your life in jail.

Imagine if they could have dispatched their bombs in the trunk of a car that they were never in themselves? Catching them might have been an order of magnitude more difficult than it was.

No. You're confusing two different scenarios and ASSUMING that the technique that worked in one scenario WOULD BE THE ONLY TECHNIQUE USED in the other scenario.

"That shutdown could stretch from temporary to quasi-permanent with ease, as security professionals grapple with the technical challenge of distinguishing between safe, legitimate payloads and payloads that are intended to harm."

It COULD. But more likely it won't.

Mostly because he's assuming that an autonomous car will be exactly like a current car + driver ... but with a really stupid robot driver that will do anything you tell it to do. Don't assume that.

But it wouldn't work anyway.

I don't think he even understands FedEx. FedEx cannot tell you where a package is RIGHT NOW. They can only tell you where it was LAST SCANNED.

The reason this works well for packages is that packages don't move themselves. And even then it has failures. This will completely fail because HUMANS can wander around on their own.

Sounds more like Christie wants to associate his campaign with something that people have a mostly positive opinion of. But I'm pretty sure that FedEx will not want to be associated with a losing candidate OR the concept of tagging and tracking undesirable races/nationalities (shades of Nazi German there).

Because ten years down the road after Uber puts taxis out of business, there is no longer any incentive to remain clean or maintained.

Even a moment of thought would reveal how untrue that statement is, because cars with poor drivers or unsafe or unclean, would not get riders - who can see the cars rating quite plainly

Look over Fluffenmutter's history, a more obvious shill for the taxi industry I've never seen. Not once will admit a single flaw with taxis, while claiming that every flaw taxis suffer from Uber must suffer also - even though any user of Uber and Taxis knows there is simply no comparison - by ANY metric chosen, taxis are worse.

Comment Re:Honest question.. (Score 1) 148

Because some drivers prefer to drive around where the live, and also some drivers prefer to drive where there is less competition more occasional fares, but for longer distances.

The practical reality is that uber HAS gotten a car to me quickly in outlying areas of a city where a cab would have been 20-30 minutes away - if they every even came, which anyone who has ever really used cab services knows is questionable.

Again you refuse to acknowledge that whatever sins you paint Uber with, Taxis have far greater issues.

Commercial insurance, commercial licenses,

How does that improve SAFTEY you blithering moron? Rather than just helping pay medical bills after the fact?

BTW Uber provides that ANYWAY.

safety shields

You do realize what those do to passengers in a crash ? No ? Idiot.

fresh brakes,

Fresh brakes are worse than brakes that have been worn in, retard.

steering controls, suspension, and control arms

The 70's called and said under no circumstances are we to return you even though you plainly belong there....

You aren't very familiar with modern sealed systems in cars are you? When was the last time you greased a CV joint? Have you ever?

Does uber even control the time the car spends on the road and how often it is inspected?

The state does. Have you ever even driven in a cab which are usually in various states of utter disrepair?

Passenger vehicles just aren't made for that without very careful care.

Actually they ARE. Modern passengers vehicles are made for heavy abuse for at least the first few hundred thousand miles.

And as a side note, you think cabs are built better? Come on.

Money and denial are powerful motivators

Well denial anyway, as evidenced by your absurd post. I'll not respond further as I can't do much to help out your particular mix of ignorance and insanity that seems to affect all people with an irrational hate of Uber.

It's hilarious how all of the defects you list are so much worse for cabs, yet you try to tarnish Uber with the brush of disrepair.... Cabs have been utterly worse in terns of safety for some time than passenger cars, things like no working SEATBELTS for example. They don't have to do the same inspections passenger cars do.

yup. it's like the church pastor who is caught having a gay affair, smoking meth, or committing adultery. a large number of his congregation will deny it, defend him, and attack the accuser. "slut, blackmailer, out destroy a good man because the devil" etc.
