You keep using that word "her". I don't think that word means what you think it means.
So what is the difference between "saying" something to this software and typing it into MS Word? Would it be different if it was typed into Cortana? What if something rude was dictated into Word?
I feel like I'm feeding a troll here but I need to say... Should this guy turn out to be your boss (or future potential boss), loan officer etc., your sanctimonious judgement of other people will probably not win you any brownie points. What he does with his slutty virtual assistant when you're not around is probably none of your #&^*ing business.

Completely depends on your situation. If your job is a one-off and you don't expect to use it again soon, the cheap solution is probably the way to go. If, OTOH, you are doing this for a living / all day you probably don't care about the extra expense. Better tools will produce better results for a much longer period of time.

The stated goal of communism is the elimination of money, social class and the state among other things.
The purported goal of Feminism is gender equality.
The original purpose of RICO law was the prosecution of mob bosses.
Sometimes reality should speak more loudly than the dictionary when it comes to ideology, especially when it comes to one person relating their individual experiences.

You can ban guns fitting other criteria. e.g. "using gun powder".

Except that tiny problem where you've just raped the shit out of any reasonable interpretation of the Second Amendment. You may want to re-read it if you've forgotten what it says. If you don't like it, get it changed. We've done it before. Don't resort to sneaky back door tactics to circumvent the Constitution. BTW, you may also want to work on your definition of the word minority.

He can clearly say whatever he wants. Remember the old saw about "your right to swing your fist ends at the tip of my nose"? He's advocating the suppression of free speech and penalization for just being exposed to the wrong kind of speech. We're saying the action of the government to restrict our constitutional rights should be restricted, which is not at all the same thing as limiting his freedom to advocate the aforementioned idiocy.

Here, second hit on Google by searching on "police cannibal child". I'm probably on some list now, thanks a lot! :-) To the main point, the problem here is he hadn't actually done anything illegal. It's really important we only punish criminals. In order for someone to be a criminal they have to have committed a crime. Nail him on the DB search, having a taillight out or not trimming his trees properly (this is Cali after all) but find an actual crime to prosecute him for!

Regardless of how it started, it's been adopted by an awful lot of feminists and is still being used by them NOW. Google #killallmen. Look at who is using it and how old the hits are, I double dog dare you!
As for the facts and verifiable statements / actions of feminists you blithely dismiss, I salute you. Not just everyone can take that many solid examples of something and pretend that calling them "clap trap" means they have been refuted.

Comment Re:Footage showing the police in the right. (Score 1) 167

What will happen when the footage and audio captured repeatedly shows that the police were in the right, that they acted reasonably, and that it was in fact the other party/parties who were in the wrong?

Exactly the same thing as if you were to review the footage of red light cameras filming cars stopping at an intersection correctly. Nothing. This is because it's how things are supposed to work. Ideally people should always stop in time for a red light and police should always act reasonably towards the people they are there to protect. Unfortunately we do not live in an ideal world (shocker, I know). People occasionally run red lights and cops sometimes abuse people.
For your own well being BTW, please disabuse yourself of the notion that all people must / should act rationally when presented with solid evidence contrary to their preconceived notions. You'll sleep better at night!
