Comment Re: And Obama once again is a blatant liar (Score 1) 534

Every discussion of the Iraq war should start with this statement. Sadden Hussein was a murderous tyrant, launching two wars of aggression; for oil. He tried to start WWIII by launching missiles against Israel and committed chemical warfare genocide against his own people. He was personally and solely responsible for the death of over 1 million people, mostly Muslims, putting him in the murderous class of Hitler, Stalin, Kim, and Pol Pot in infamy.

Investment in space race, interstate highways, the GI Bill, all gave incredible returns, past tense. Ask scientists what would give us future returns: one manned mars expedition or 100 robot expeditions to planets, moons, comets, asteroids, oh yeah, and nobody dies.

Copyright is a deal: I agree to give you a copy in exchange for this price as long as you don't copy it and give it or sell it to someone else. You unilaterally break the deal when you give away copies. If you don't like the deal you should not make it in the first place, not declare that you have some right after the fact. If you want a deal that allows you to give away copies, ask for a price.
