No, he is not guilty of similar things. He could be storing his emails in plaintext on a public server readable by every single individual on the planet. It's not Hillary's lack of server security that is the problem. It's the existence and use of a private server for public business that is the problem. Trump's emails are his personal and business emails. They are not subject to national security classification rules. They are not subject to FOIA retention requirements. They are subject to whatever the hell Trump wants which may or may not include security to the extent that Trump demands.

Good for her I suppose, but you missed the point, what was your other (non-penis head, do you have one of those?) doing at the time? Were you thinking about something, maybe you were thinking about the reasons for your sad sad sexual encounter with a woman who is probably at least twice as old as you are. Were you able to concentrate or were you distracted by the fact that you can't get a girl who maybe is closer to your age?

There is an old proverb of two heads being better than one I wonder if we could do something about that missing head that so many of us need, this way one head could be doing one thing and another head something else entirely.... I guess the male portion of the population knows a thing or two about this topic already and the females don't really have a problem with doing 10 things at once.

Journal Journal: UBI is the modern version of Communism 1

In the last year or so there have been numerous stories on /. on the subject of Universal Basic Income (UBI). Many so called 'libertarians' left a number of comments on how they are supporting UBI because they think it might be more efficient than other forms of welfare.

Ha ha, I just thought what would it look like if a local lemonade stand (when was the last time you've seen one) did this?


a glass of lemonade: 5 cents.
cost of doing business with all the rules, regulations, taxes, laws: 2.50
total: 2.55

I mean, that would be the cheapest glass of lemonade in decades for me but those regulation and tax costs are outrageous

I admit, Gary isn't the best at live interviews, but his policy on Aleppo is solid even if his immediate response was facepalm worthy. No one is actually arguing about his foreign policy, just his ability to deal with pop quizzes. For those concerned about Gary Johnson because of an Aleppo question, I would encourage you to consider that the POTUS never has to answer questions without a cabinet of experts to advise them.

(same commenter, posting from my second account, otherwise I couldn't post here right now).

Civilization is organization, I disagree that civilization requires oppression to organize. We are perfectly capable of organizing without oppressive ideas, such as nation states, countries, territories and governments. We voluntarily trade what we produce for what others produce, that's what the most important and the only needed level of organization is. Yes, it is anarcho capitalism, AFAIC it is the system that would most benefit individual freedoms, which is the idea.

I would think that Samsung, which makes a huge range of products, could find one where they could integrate the failed tablets after removing the battery. People have talked about integrating touch screens with refrigerators. Now that can at minimal cost. Or turn them into hard-wired wall-mounted touch screens. I would love to see them for all the conference rooms at my office, set to display who has reserved the room and for how long.

The point is that there are all kinds of things these could be used for without the exploding batteries.

Your local laws may make that an option that doesn't get counted:

Currently, 43 States allow Write In Ballots for President of the United States. Most States require a candidate to register, however; Vermont, Wyoming, Oregon, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Iowa, Delaware, and Alabama do not require registration.

If your write in is for a candidate that isn't registered, it gets thrown in the trash. Sorry Mickey Mouse, you're not winning this year.

I don't have a daughter and my wife is perfectly capable of defending herself. The idea that Trump is bad because we have wives and daughters is insulting to women who aren't related to you. Sexual assault is wrong whether it's against a wife, a daughter, a teacher, a UPS driver, a homeless women, or even an illegal prostitute.

Before anyone brings up Hillary (also a known defender of sexual assault), I'm a freaking Libertarian. Good luck finding something Gary Johnson has said that degrades women.
