I love the "Job creator" argument.
If they only kill 3 towns its ok because well, they are job creators. If they only poison 1 states water supply its ok. I mean they make all the jobs for those same people that are now dying due to drinking the water.

If I promise to pay you 500K a year for a job I create for you, is it then ok to randomly kill your family members? I mean I am creating jobs.

Yep. Like AT&T.
They were "taken" and split up.
Now we have Sprint, Verizon, AT&T.
Right when they were "taken" all innovation stopped, all investment stopped.

That is the talking points of all big business. If you regulate us we will move to another country. Yea right, because those other countries don't regulate. I call BS on all of the "job creators".

Just remember mouth piece.
1. The meltdown: Congress remove the funding for the Justice Department so they now have 1/3 the amount of people to pursue the financial crisis. ( call it Obama all you want but he did not defund the people who would build the legal cases to prosecute).
2. due process free detention / execution: Stated enemy combatant, traitor or terrorist can be engaged by lethal means. Yep if you are a traitor move to a foreign location to be trained by known terrorist, for the purpose of attacking America or American people the US can attack you. Even if you have now moved back to the US to perform those traitor or terrorist actions.

I would assume you would prefer that we remove the federal sentencing of "up to death" for traitors?

Go hate to go hate. When all of "your" team votes for the laws agrees with the de funding then complains that the laws are used as worded and and no one has been prosecuted. Well that is an issue you created so stop bitching.

I am not saying Obama has done great things but damn people. Make the mess then bitch at someone else. Rinse and repeat.

The big problem with using the house analogy is that everyone forgets the first part.
The first part is I put out a sign in my yard saying everyone please come into my house and take what you want. I also post on craigslist and in the newspaper my address and let them know to come in and take what they want.
Then when they come in what I really mean is come into the living room and take what you want. They went into the bedroom and took stuff and now I am upset.

Almost every system that is not for public connection but is connected to the internet now has a legal banner stating you are not allowed in unless authorized.

That is correct. It is against the law. So every single congressman and woman (both repubs and dems) who not only voted for it in the beginning but renewed the laws (with gusto watch the interviews) then complained how the law was used should go to prison. Making a law then complaining that it is used is a bad law!

The association between religion and the belief that âoe I am pure and you are going to hellâ is so ingrained that merely thinking about it can trigger more immoral behavior, according to a study by researchers at the University of Kansas. The researchers hypothesized that there is a deep-seated perception that my religion makes me better then you â" its emphasis on myth-seeking, self-importance and irrationality privileges above all else. The researchers conducted four separate studies to test this. In the first, participants read a bible passage of a date-rape and were asked to rate the 'wrongness' of the offense. Those reporting greater belief in religion condemned the victim more harshly stating âoeshe probably deserved itâ. This was also followed up with the strong believe that if it was a âoerealâ rape then her body would just reject any possibility of pregnancy.

Just a thought. Forget actual failure. What happens when they have IP data or licensed data that is being hosted by a cloud provider, or company to company lawsuit. Court case starts. Could or would they they seize all computers / servers that could house the data? What would happen to the other peoples data that resides on the same physical hardware?
