Hell, maybe you'll look at reality and change your views and go out of that box of bigotry and hatred. Who knows.

"Bigotry" and "opinions that are different from yours" are not synonyms. And maybe you keep losing track of the actual conversation because you are too busy finding irrelevant wikipedia or fox news links, or maybe the voices in your head are just too loud, but one way or the other, the only hatred in this thread is your not so subtle antisemitic babbling.

And you just proved you're more interested in being the vigilante than the advocate of peace and tolerance, especially when your opponents don't want peace and tolerance.

I stopped reading after that sentence because people who say things like "you just proved" are the worst possible debaters. Also in my experience those people have a big butt but I guess we'll never know if that's your case.

This is actually by design. Their model is not profit, it's growth and innovation. It's a new economy where the balance sheet is becoming less and less a key factor for large corporations, and for the most part shareholders are ok with it because investments are made in the short term and the skyrocketing share price is more attractive than actual equity or dividends.

I'm not saying I agree, just that this is not by mistake that they don't make a profit.

I'm not even religious, but the FUD and crap thrown at Muslims reminds me of shit Nazis threw around at Jews or KKK at non-whites. Fucking disgusting.

Again with the Ben Affleck syndrome. Put anything that has even the most indirect link to islam in a discussion, and suddenly phony liberals get their panties in a bunch and talk about how Muslims are the real victims of everything and everyone.

The bodies at the Charlie Hebdo massacre were not even cool when phonies like you were already going ballistic about those poor non-violent Muslims that idiots were inevitably going to put in the same basket as terrorists. Not a word about the dead people.

If you feel the need to be outraged, why don't you think of those women that are sold in the market in the Islamic State, or those 2-hour fake marriages just pronounced to let "freedom fighters" rape women legally? Why don't you defend people who are real victims?

I'll tell you why people like you never do it. Because it's not convenient. It's not convenient to mention that there are thousands of serial rapists who want to bring back the dark ages in the Middle East (as long as they can keep raping) and that nutjobs all over the world (the "lone wolves") join their cause because they see it as a way out of their pathetic lives. It's a lot more convenient to throw your bile at civilized people because those civilized people won't put a death warrant signed by god on your head and won't run towards you with a pipe bomb in their pocket.

You sir are a fucking coward always aiming for the lowest hanging fruit of self-righteous political correctness, and I hereby invite you to go fuck yourself. You are the least valuable side effect of life in a safe, democratic nation.

The name of that charter is misleading. The purpose of that document is not to protect citizens, it's to give to the federal government the opportunity to override any court decision made in one of the provinces under the pretense of protecting the citizens. It is a huge loophole that gives to federal politicians the power to overrule judges.

That charter is what allowed things like islamic courts to appear in Ontario, and was used to override a Quebec courts decision to forbid Sikh schoolboys from bringing a knife at school.

Did you read the testimonials from the Airbnb and Dropbox guys?

We're really excited about Presto. We're planning on using it to quickly gain insight about the different ways our users use Dropbox

It's like those book reviews on Amazon where people say: "I've only read the first two pages so far but I'm excited about this book". Very convincing.
