Comment TSA has made us an easier target (Score 2) 239

The long lines are what they are bombing now, terrorists targeting airports right now are thinking that rolling up with a suitcase filled with explosives in the middle of a large crowd waiting for security:

a) Shuts down the whole airport.
b) Inflicts more causalities than randomly crashing an airliner
c) Will make security spend massive amounts of money countering

Let''s review, TSA has made us less safe by offering us up as a larger and slower target. It is like putting security at the watering hole to make sure no one is a crocodile while lions eat everyone else who is waiting in line.

Iran, last week, released nearly all of its Al Qaeda prisoners, so what the fuck are you talking about? Don't claim I'm misinformed when you don't read the damn newspaper. I'm not implying that Iran and Al Qaeda are buddies but that they are working together in this instance against the United States, is that really surprising?

A company I worked for left some USB sticks laying around our break room one weekend, us local IT guys and corporate were the only ones in on it, by the end of the day, 8 out of 10 of the USB sticks had been plugged in. One low-level manager, had 3 of them and when we came into his office, he was offloading porn and mp3s from his work computer unto them.

Comment Charlie Wilson's War II (Score 2) 189

Iran has stepped up efforts at helping Hamas, Hezbollah, the Taliban and is now releasing all of its Al Qaeda terrorists back into the wilds of the Middle East, the question we should be asking, was this attack worth it if terrorism increased because of it? From what I have seen, no, we are now dealing with Iran supplying larger and larger munitions to the Taliban, 'Charlie Wilson's War' is going to have a sequel and this time the protagonist is going to be Iranian.

Comment FOXNews has a problem not all of libertarianism (Score 3, Informative) 1352

When was the last time Nozick had anything printed of his besides his Anarchy, State and Utopia? Do you even know who Nozick is, or do you get your libertarian views secondhand? Because that is what this survey is indicting you for, a lack of engaging with the source material, of understanding the nature of what is going on, not from any particular ideological viewpoint but understanding that is based on the bare facts. Foxnews gets the facts wrong, over and over again, Reason, The National Review and other libertarian and conservative news organizations don't have this problem, only Fox, that is what this study is getting at, comprehende?
