Comment Re:Concern for high values? (Score 2) 356

I'm sure it's just a question about vegan/vegetarian food not having same status as halal/kosher food. I doubt Muslims in Swedish jails would be forced to eat non-halal food. It's probably just a matter of economics. Preparing special food for one guy and have it delivered to him would cost too much money and take up to many man-hours. It's just not cost effective and prisons have a budget just like every other government run facility.

Neither dog food nor insects are considered human food in most countries. I'll rewrite your question so it makes more sense and is comparable to eating ordinary food instead of vegan food... "If you went to jail and all they served was vegan food, would you eat it? How about kosher/halal food?" My answer is, Yes I would eat what ever food they put in front of me as long as it is human food.

"Nobody in the US government would ever consider misusing this surveillance capability. As we all know, US government workers do not take bribes, the rich and powerful only have the same rights as anybody else, and the US government has a long history of the utmost integrity. There is no reason for anyone using BlackBerry who is concerned about their privacy to switch to another provider."

There, fixed it for you.

Comment Companies and dictatorships (Score 1) 112

I can't understand why everyone gets so upset about the fact that companies does business with dictatorships. It is not a companies place to dictate foreign policy, that is why we have politicians (they do precious little anyways so why make their burden even lighter ?). An embargo against a country should be enforced on a national level, by a nation or group of nations, not by a sales rep at Toy's 'R Us or Nokia. If they can refuse to do business with Gaddafi's regime that opens the flood gates to all kinds of discrimination, what is next ? If companies should be required to stop doing business with Gaddafi or maybe Syria, why should they be allowed to continue trade on the Chinese market? Also an oppressive and military backed dictatorship.
