Why do you feel the need to use so many negative words: bullshit, killing, evil, hatred, hatred, lies, evilz, hate? Could you not have carried your point across with regular, non inflammatory words?
Absolutely, I can wax rather poetic, and have quite a vocabulary.
However, I have to admit that patience is not one of my virtues when presented with complete fabrications and dissembling. While it might seem to some and adequate representation of the state of the US customs system by comparing it with the Canadian system, as it turns out, that is not even remotely correct nor true. It is demonstrable in fact that a person who enters Canada can be detained in order to have the contents of their phone searched, and the contents used as part of a process that results in conviction, and the conviction upheld on appeal.
I have traveled outside the country on occasions, and have been warned about carrying any sort of data retention device without rather extensive precautions.. This has been the case since the early 2000's. Any device you carry might leave your possession, and the contents might be searched. This includes work and personal computers, and phones. Any country, any where. If I had to take a work computer, it had to be one with a freshly wiped and imaged drive. No exceptions allowed.
If a person feels that entrance to the USA is fraught with personal risk, if they feel that they will have all manner of indiscretions visited upon their persons and their data retention devices, then that of course, is a right to which they might exercise. However, when it is put forth with great authority that a country to the north of the United States is somehow a safe haven from such inexcusable intrusions, perhaps I might be forgiven when dealing with people on Slashdot and making the mistake that they are not only technically inclined, but intellectually adroit, and would at least check their sources. I would confess to that guilt. Perhaps I have read many of these same posts, and find a running theme of what - if you will forgive me holding a contrary opinion - are likewise applying one rule of acceptable behavior to one country, and a different one to all other countries, perhaps it is time to reply in a manner that might not only stimulate their attention, but also point out their hypocrisy.
Now indeed, the state of the world, where it is quite in vogue to express great disdain for the United States of America, and that this disdain is often applied for multiple reasons, that I am indeed perhaps tilting at windmills in my replies, as in obvious, one does not often convince dissemblers of the falseness of their notions and statement, even when presented with attributable facts - unless of course, you believe that Our neighbors to the north in Canada are also in the "Fake News" business as is so often spouted when information contrary to one's particular version of the truth is disseminated.
tl;dr It gets fucking old to read the same lies over and over again.
Can't imagine you'd actually want replies like what I just made. But I certainly can - if people need that sort of thing. One part of my job is telling people to go to hell in a way that they look forward to the trip.
