Because exercising freedom of speech makes one an Enemy Of The State, right?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I choose to worry about things that are more likely, like identify theft.
So putting back doors in encryption software is OK when done for national security purposes. But bad when hackers exploit these same engineered weaknesses to steal your personal information. Leave your front door unlocked so the police may more easily conduct searches. Never mind that the incidence of burglers cleaning your house out will be orders of magnitude more common. And don't forget that Snowden was an anomoly only in that he forwarded data he absconded with to the press. The NSA/FBI/CIA is full of "contractors" that slip copies of data to buddies in private enterprise for purposes of industrial and commercial espionage.
Our civil rights take a back seat to the needs of law enforcement to manage the populace for the benefit of the elite.
Because they hadn't been grooming the suspects and didn't help them obtain driver's licenses; which means these people were at least competent enough to acquire a car and fuel on their own.... so its unlikely to be terrorism in the sense we have become accustomed to in the past decade or so.
No its pretty easy, they were in disguise trying to pass a bad guys checkpoint....
Exactly, we don't want to be associated with torture, that stuff has to be kept quiet. It is no longer socially acceptable to openly torture.
Then they should be issued to the public who can't seem to stop shitting themselves every time there is an incident. Frankly I think planes are victims of their own success, so safe that crashes are too unusual and people can't handle it makes them freak out more.
Fact is when this happens it is major international news. That right there tells you something. This is not even worth the time we have spent talking about it, never mind wasting time playing musical chairs every time someone has to take a piss.
To drown it once and for all? Yes, that it does.
If Cruz wins the Republican primaries, it will be hilarious, even if it won't really last long. Unfortunately, that's exactly why he won't win them. We'll get someone boring again, like Bush.
By the same reason regular flamethrowers aren't classed as such?
I'm not sure which country you're from, but chances are good that this kind of flamethrower is actually legal and unregulated there, as well.
How about flamenwerfer
But why should I expect my private business to incurr costs to make some future militarization easier?
Actually, not a bad idea (sort of). Add a door just aft of the front restroom and galley. Close and lock it and the cockpit door unlocks and remains unlocked. Flight crew have access to restroom and front galley. Crew returns to the flight deck and the outer door unlocks so passengers and cabin crew can access facilities.
Some work will have to be done to ensure no-one can hide in this area during the locking procedure.
Welcome to Slashdot. People arguing over topics for which they have no practical experience.
Spaghetti code is good.
With lots of meatballs.
