Trump's Muslim tracking plan

You can bitch all you want on this piece of garbage-journalism, they still got into your head making you believe there is such a plan. This is classic persuasion. Make people think about what should be their reaction *if* something would happen. You start thinking about your reaction and before you know it you've taken the something for granted.

I firmly suggest you listen to all the words in that video and realize that, despite the youtube description of the video, at no point is Donald Trump talking about a registry or a database for muslims. And you have the guts to point us to a video that disprove your point... Well done dude.

We had one quite different with a Lotus Notes server. Our time server rebooted and it's motherboard battery was empty, so it basically rebooted to 1971. So the Lotus Notes server's clock was suddenly set to 1971 and when they changed the clock back Lotus went crazy and started resending every fucking email it had in storage over again. I received my welcome mail 20 minutes later and everyone was flooded with old emails for hours. It took a while to delete all of that junk.

He ran a campaign on lies, ignorance, and hatred.

Open your eyes, your mind and realize the same can be said about Hillary. She even paid people to create riots at Trump's rallies, so I'd say she deserves this sentence even more than Trump. But hey, freedom of tought...

What you say is that some "good conscience" grey hats need to write robots that hack through those devices and brick them ? That could work. But then you need to protect yourself pretty well, cause the day one of those manufacturers get a hold of you you're going to get sued down to oblivion.

To be honest, and when you look at the poor state of the country, I think 14 is a pretty decent number. I mean, that's just north of the number of domain names I own, so they're more prolific than me.

That should count for something, no?

All arguments you give against Trump can be made against Clinton as well, and more often than not they are worse against Clinton.

I'm not an american and thus I won't get to vote on this issue. But I seriously think Trump would be much better for America than Clinton. Clinton will be the same old same old that has been slowly screwing the country over decades. Se will want to place friends and to please everyone in her party. That's screwing any chance of seeing a deep reform.

Trump has the good idea of being new blood. He's already wealthy beyond his own needs and I (personnally) think he will be in a position to do more reforms that Hillary ever will be.

And no, he is not crazy, nor racist.

That said, as I mentionned I will not vote and I'm only throwing an external eye at the issue.

If it doesn't degrade gracefully to text version, I don't even bother...

Sometimes it degrades gracefully, but it's the exception, not the norm.

The interesting thing is that for it to degrade gracefully, it forces you to think much more pragmatically and you end up with a better website overall even with people that have JS on.
