Comment Re:Stallman would have something to say about this (Score 1) 488

Having a gun registered has nothing to do with 'girlintraining's comment. The point being owning a gun, whether registered or not, automatically would label said gun owner as a killer, simply because by owning a gun they possess the ability to kill someone.

The contrast here is that simply owning a computer and having basic programming skills labels you as a hacker...which is wrong on many levels, but especially should the courts decide to search your computers for evidence of anything related to anything they deem possibly harmful to a complainant.

Submission + - What do you do if you are a mob hitman on trial for murdering 19 people? (

Second...lie about having anything to do with it.

Stephen "Stippo" Rakes, a former South Boston man who had waited decades for a chance to testify against James "Whitey" Bulger, was found dead in Lincoln on Wednesday, authorities said today.

Rakes, had been on the witness list and had been eager to testify that Bulger threatened his family at gunpoint and forced him to turn his liquor store into a front for the Winter Hill Gang. But earlier this week prosecutors informed Rakes he would not be called to testify, a decision that left Rakes despondent.

False flag (or black flag) describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities, groups or nations than those who actually planned and executed them.

Well ya if you want to believe that Wikipedia is the endall source of today's world: "False flag terrorism" occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. OR The term originates with naval warfare. For centuries, ships have sailed under a flag identifying their nationality. During times of war, ships would sometimes change the national flag they flew in order to fool other vessels that they sought to attack or escape from. OR Something disguised to seem affiliated with a group OTHER THAN the one it really is affiliated with. For example, a "false flag operation" is a terrorist act committed by one group for the express purpose of discrediting another group, which is framed for it. Just sayin...
