I could be described as liberal, I think the over reaction to children playing with toy guns, drawing guns etc is absolutely ridiculous. What I find more ridiculous, is peoples inability to understand liberal and conservative are not two molds where everyone thinks exactly the same and has the same reaction and level of intelligence. Stop turning politics into a tribal war thinking there are two distinct sides, and one is out to get you.

Or you could accept that problems have a variety of solutions all with cons and pros, some could be described as lefty, some as right, some as authoritarian, some as libertarian, and all of the spectrum in between. To suggest "lefty policies cause problems rather then solve them" is just as disingenuous as ascribing the same to right leaning policies and only furthers the tribal break down of politics in contemporary America.

Comment Re:Netflix wants to DRM the web (Score 3, Insightful) 93

The same way DRM destroyed the open computer? I dunno about you but I can still do whatever the hell I want on my computer, and can circumvent DRM if needed.

I'm no fan of DRM, but it's a compromise I'd be willing to make to bring the movie and tv studios inline with the music industry, and if history is any guide, after a few years the tv and movie people will agree to drm-free releases as did the music industry. Play the long game, not the reactionary steadfast to ideology game.
