Every single one of the problems you cite about drugs is due to their prohibition, or at the very least exacerbated by it.

Exactly the same things happened during alcohol prohibition, but for some reason you people are too stupid to see the correlation and instead continue to think that doing more and harder of the same will get you different results.

UF is certainly one of the oldest web comics and one of the few to support the artist. If it had not been for plagerized it still would be running.

I would also point out that the old web comic I know about is I PhD, running since 1997 with almost 2000 strips.

I guess in this post factual world, no one will care.

My opinion is that since around 2000, it has been a renesance in newspaper style cartoons as the barriers to entry are non existent and for those who got in early, quality was all that mattered. Even late comers, like XKCD do much better by some metrics than early entries and popular sites like SMBC.

You just broadcast the fact that your entire understanding of the state of security in the business sector is based on idealistic speculation. "He's was a CEO once, so his Android OS must be more secure than everyone else's Android OS!"??? Wow. That is just a phenomenal absurdity.

"Just because he uses it for twitter does not mean hes using it for official business"

You don't seem to understand that when he tweets, he is using it for "official business". Once you understand that simple and obvious point then you will be in a place to begin to get a clue. Hint: "I was the president when I tweeted it, but it was just me having personal fun and I was in no way acting as the President at the time" doesn't fly.

"Meanwhile, back in reality you listed things that are naturally scarce. There are only so many phone numbers to go around"

And you think email addresses are different? Tell my buddy John Smith how the name space for email addresses isn't limited. Hell, I have an exceedingly rare last name and my first letter last name combo is often already taken when I try to sign up for a new service.

"Top secret meetings have phones barred from entering rooms. I doubt he can get around that no matter how much of an asshole he is.. Hes not Stupid."

Well, in at least one case he got around it by just having the meeting in public, so I hate to break it to you, but yes .... he is quite stupid.

"You ain't gonna get rid of him so easily."

What could be easier than doing nothing, then sitting back and watching him self destruct? It is going to be hilarious to see him complain that the press endangered national security by disclosing that the Samsung S3 is the particular insecure platform he is using, and not him for using it.

Amazon actually gives small companies a place to market their products to a larger audience. If you want to blame a company for killing Mom & Pop shops, Wal-Mart has done more to kill American workers than just about anyone. Not content to destroy their competitors in large swaths of the country, they've pushed companies into offshoring to China to guarantee they get the prices they want.
