Comment Re:That's funny... (Score 1, Insightful) 57

Right wing idiots and Russian collaborators may think it's a 'coup' for the CIA to record Russian spies who collaborated with the Trump campaign to hack our election, but that's not what a coup is. A coup is collaborating with a foreign government's spies in their hacks of your opponent, granting them policy changes as a reward. Examples: Ukraine policy reversal in RNC platform, and gutting of the State Department.

I'm sorry that your boy Donald Trump was committing treason with Russian spies, but the CIA's job is to protect us from Russian spies. That includes Russian spies who collude with a Presidential campaign to go on a Watergate style crime spree.

If Donald Trump didn't want the CIA to uncover obviously treasonous activities, he shouldn't have traded real estate industry bribes and hacking of his opponent's campaign for Russian control of his administration...

Of course not.

When Donald Trump collaborated with the Russian spies who hacked and released private campaign information in a Watergate style crime spree, the CIA intercepted those communications, as they should.

Traitors like Donald Trump don't have any expectation of privacy when communicating with a foreign adversary's spies!

Give me a break... Yes, Donald Trump and all the traitors who sold America to Russia are on tape selling us out. Don't want to end up in a CIA recording? Then don't collaborate with Russia's intelligence services, and don't have foreign agents in your administration!

Comment Donald Trump - Traitor, Scam Artist (Score -1, Offtopic) 251

Does it really surprise anyone that Donald Trump is an obvious traitor who sold America out to the Russian Intelligence services?

This guy has proven throughout his entire life that he's a con artist, and a general lowlife. If you had to guess who the traitor is - you'd likely pick the lowlife scam artist...

It's pathetic that so many Americans support a traitor in the White House...

I don't want to say you all are traitors - but you do support a traitor...

Maybe you should consider the fact that you had only one job this election - voting to defeat Donald Trump and keep America free.

You didn't do the one thing you were responsible for, and you have the nerve to throw stones at Hillary Clinton?

At least she did her job.. you didn't do a single thing other than moaning about your lack of good choices while you acquiesced to Trump's rise to power.

You should hold your head in shame from now until the rest of eternity for your complicity in Donald Trump's reign of terror.

Curb your entitlement long enough to see that you didn't fulfill your basic responsibility as a voter, and do better next time.

poor spelling might be a reason for excluding you.

Yes, I regret my typo. Not as much as you should regret supporting Donald Trump's un-American, bigoted, executive orders.. but still.. I regret my typo.

And that's different from Obama... how? Or from what Hillary was threatening us with?

Obama didn't pass bigoted, idiotic executive orders so poorly that legal visa holders are turned away at our airports with no legitimate or legal reason.

Come to think of it - Obama had 0 scandals in 8 years, and Donald Trump's entire campaign and presidency has been plagued with scandal.

Geez, where was all that concern when past presidents kept screwing up the lives of legal immigrants, foremost Democrats?

Democrats welcome immigrants into the United States with the kindness and decency we were known before Donald Trump disgraced our country with his bigotry and incompetence.

I think the real question is - when I post "Donald Trump is a bigoted tyrant" what should happen to me at the boarder.

Let's not forget - We aren't even 2 weeks into the Trump presidency, and he is already using his power to intimidate and stifle free speech..

To say nothing of his cruel bigotry and inhumanity towards legal visa holders, and green card holders.

2 people were told to sign away their green cards without an attorney present on Trump's unconstitutional orders.

This idiocy and bigotry will backfire, but Donald Trump is intent on silencing dissent on Facebook via bigoted actions at our Airports.

Donald Trump is a national disgrace, and his supporters (along with non-voters) should be ashamed of themselves.

Comment Do the right thing - stand against Trump's bigotry (Score 4, Informative) 952

Donald Trump's bigoted and idiotic executive orders are blocking legal visitors at airports, and spreading chaos at tech companies.

Seriously - when someone manages to escape a civil war and work his way into the tech industry - we shouldn't send him or his family back at the airport when he's traveling or living here on a valid visa.

These are our friends and colleagues. If we don't speak up for them, we have no honor.

Comment This is why FAKE NEWS is so prevalent on Facebook (Score 0, Troll) 385

Conservatives whine like crazy when their blatantly inaccurate claims aren't reported as "news". Then, by claiming some sort of bias against their fake news, they grant legitimacy to their phony claims. Your fake news isn't real news, republicans. I know that you are too stupid to know the difference, but the rest of us know that you are lying and spreading misinformation. Now, go on and keep whining until google has to pretend your FAKE NEWS is legitimate. Poison the well, assholes. Poison the well.

Comment Snowden is the best reason for private email (Score 0) 344

Edward Snowden devastated U.S national security interests by releasing tons of classified emails.

But you know who's emails Snowden didn't release? Hillary's...

I think Hillary's private email server was a truly bad idea even if just politically.

That said she kept her emails safe from Edward Snowden.

Comment Re: It's like Venezuela but without all the gun cr (Score 1) 431

That is a silly argument like the finance minister of Greece saying "we can't go back to the drachma because we sold the presses". The EU would just create a law for the Greek exit on the spot and that's it.

The reason there is no mechanism in place is a "political statement" that means we are in this together and we are serious about it, but in practice it is at best a technical details. The problem obviously is that that contradict the original political statement and that's the open door for countries to bail out and angry citizen requiring "bad member of the EU/EURO" to be let go.

That is the risk - letting the Greek go probably means the end of the EURO - the fact that there is no mechanism is smoke and mirrors.

Comment Re:Why would they need nuclear energy? (Score 1) 409

Solar power has been a real option for what ? 10 years ? That's probably generous as it has mostly been ramping up in the last 5 years or so and only in countries that have either the economy to import or the infrastructure to build solar panels. Nuclear Power is still the #1 solution for stable base load power, and the reason it is out of love (but note - not out of use) in the first world is for safety concern and NIMBY, not for anything related to weapon.

As for Iran, it has been on the world shit list for long enough that not having kept up with the latest trend should hardly be surprising.
