Comment: Free speech. I understand. (Score 1) 1097

I posted a comment an hour or so ago and it is gone. It was a reply to another post here. Is there possibly someone here who does not believe in free speech?

It was a comment about the ordinariness of mohammad. It was only my opinion.

Here now is a comment about free speech: Two dickheads died in Texas for trying to violently shut down free speech.
Here now is a question: Do you think those two dickheads learned their lesson? The lesson being that you shouldn't try to shut down the right to free speech of citizens of the USA!

There is a reason God created guns. (And if you don't understand what that statement means, you never will.)

+ - Which smartphone is stable these days?

My wife's iPhone 6 needs to be restarted several times per week for things like internet search or making calls to work. An older 5S I'm using also doesn't consistently stream to Apple TV, doesn't display song names correctly on Apple TV and third party peripherals (like a Mercedes Benz). In short, the mainstay of Apple that is quality is fast receding. In your opinion, which smartphone brand these days is taking up the slack and delivering a fully featured smartphone that "just works"?

Disclaimer: IANAL. This post is, however, legal advice, and creates an attorney-client relationship.

By claiming to be an attorney, (as in you are giving legal advice, thus laying claim to the attorney side of the attorney-client phrase), you _are_ claiming to be a lawyer:

Thus, YOU are the evil one :)

So once again, the FBI entraps someone by convincing them to carry out an attack so that they can stop it and pretend to be heroes. How about actually stopping attacks that you haven't yourself created? Oh, right. That count is still at zero. And I guess you need to justify all your bullshit somehow.

Says a lot, coming from a fucking C.

I have a current driving licence, a current passport, etc. all the usual gubbins and have not once been required to give either of the above.

I find this assertion difficult to believe. Not saying it isn't true. Just find it difficult to believe

I would say that, at the very least, you have not visited the US in the last 10-20 years.

The EU? I find it _impossible_ to believe they don't collect _some_ biometric information on its citizens. Especially for an identity type document, say a drivers license, or a passport.

Jus' sayin'

The major difference between bonds and bond traders is that the bonds will eventually mature.
