Comment Re:Ridiculous, that we keep feeding the trolls (Score 1) 936

Antifa, BLM, KKK, Nazis, they are all just different acts in the same Shit Show. They are all extremists and bigots who think the other side has no right to express an opinion, or even live.

You, focusing on "rednecks" are also exhibiting a bigoted opinion.

Agreed. Seems in every protest or rally now days there are a few members that belong to one of those groups. Problem is when the media labels the entire group because of just a few members. The rally was not for kkk, nazis, white supremacists or even white nationalist. It was uniting conservatives in a fight for free speech: "the City of Charlottesville and roving mobs of Antifa have cracked down on the First Amendment rights of conservatives and right wing activists. They have threatened our families, harassed our employers and tried to drive us from public spaces with threats of intimidation. We are not afraid. You will not divide us."

Unfortunately Antifa showed up and started trouble and someone died as a result of it.

they're protesting their first amendment rights being taking away. What could be more American than protesting for the right of free speech? This is the opposite of Germany in the 30s. If anything antifa is behaving like the nazis by telling people they do not have a voice and if they do try to speak they're met with violence.

UNITE THE RIGHT August 12th in Charlottesville’s Lee Park. In response to the Alt-Right’s peaceful demonstration in support of the Lee Monument on May 13th, the City of Charlottesville and roving mobs of Antifa have cracked down on the First Amendment rights of conservatives and right wing activists. They have threatened our families, harassed our employers and tried to drive us from public spaces with threats of intimidation. We are not afraid. You will not divide us.

1) they were not white supremacists, or at least that was not the rally's intention. It was for conservatives:
"the City of Charlottesville and roving mobs of Antifa have cracked down on the First Amendment rights of conservatives and right wing activists. They have threatened our families, harassed our employers and tried to drive us from public spaces with threats of intimidation. We are not afraid. You will not divide us."

Did some white supremacists and neo-nazi's show up? Yes, just like any rally you're going to get some troublemakers, like in ferguson when some people looted stores but the majority of the people protesting did not.

2) The conservatives had a permit to be there. Antifa did not and came looking to fight.

3) She joined in with a violent antifa group to counter-protest a legally permitted rally. She should have known death was a real possibility. When you stand next to someone being violent, you have to know when the counter-attack happens you might be caught in the crossfire.

Comment Re: The Character, Princess Leia, Is Iconic (Score 1) 456

The jury has deliberated and we have decided that on balance of the evidence and the stipulations made here on slashdot, that Tomb Raider was indeed iconic.

Have to disagree, at least not in the context of Star Wars in which we're speaking about. Perhaps people don't know her name as much as Angelina but I guarantee they know her character better. If you asked 100 random people "What movie has the character Princess Leia?" and "What movie has the character Lara Croft?" more will remember Star Wars than Tomb Raider. And isn't that what "iconic" means, being widely recognized and well-established?

Destruction of evidence is itself a crime. The difficulty is always in proving that's what happened - by definition you're missing a key piece of evidence.

I'm less concerned about the destruction of evidence and more concerned that even though we know she's committing criminal acts, people are still supporting her for President. What does that say about them? We see criminals get away with things all the time, but usually they don't have a cheering section, and even if they do they're not trying to vote for them as President of the United States. Trump may be all the things they say about him, but Hillary is a criminal NOW, so what is she going to be like as President? If something does happen, it would be a giant SHE TOLD YOU SO.

"Socialism is the realization that we are better off working together and living in a fair society."

What you call "fair", others would call taking from the "rich" and giving to the "poor", which sounds great in theory, but in reality the "rich" aren't really the rich, they're usually the middle class, and the "poor" aren't really the poor, many are scamming the system and only appear poor on paper. Sure we can hire a bunch of people to investigate everyone's lives and make sure the actual rich are only the ones paying more and only the actual poor are the only ones receiving benefits, but that's just more big govt bureaucracy. If you **really** want to be fair, you'll let the people that worked hard to be middle class remain middle class and let them keep their money, and the people that are actually poor can receive benefits from soup kitchens and churches like they have been for thousands of years without government interference.

Comment Re:nature will breed it out (Score 1) 950

the problem will solve itself with modern technology. Kids these days don't get a $500 xstation and a tv and all that. They get a iPad and play everything on there. And no I'm not talking about the 16 yr old that still plays playbox because that's all there was 10 yrs ago before tablets, I mean the 6 year old that does not remember life before iPad. Ask any parent with a child under 8 that has a iPad, they're glued to that thing morning until night. They even watch youtube videos of other kids playing on their iPads. And iPads are far more social than a xstation, they're carrying that around everywhere.
