Statisticians Study Who Was Helped Most By Obamacare

Dan667 Re:republicans sucker the masses (739 comments)

no, the gop is able to get voters to focus on issues that more or less unimportant to most of those voter's lives to get bad policies passed to benefit the rich. An example is abortion.

Dan667 Re:Dear Canada.... (529 comments)

not scared of islamic radicals who are thousands of miles away. I am worried about the number of crazies like this guy and the complete lack of adequate mental health services due to decades of budget cuts.

U.S. Threatened Massive Fine To Force Yahoo To Release Data

Dan667 and yahoo is not done paying yet (223 comments)

The damage the US has done to US Tech Companies has just started. International companies are dumping American Companies even though they tried to do the right thing. Something needs to be done to reign in the US government and in particular the military and nsa.

Uber Now Blocked All Over Germany

Dan667 Re:Anti-competitive behavior is a big deal (312 comments)

problem is that the traditional taxi services are not meeting demand or Uber and Lyft would not be able to grow this fast. In a number of markets taxi's will just outright refuse to make short trips so part of this is also the monopoly that taxi's enjoy that they are abusing. More competition is good.

Dan667 come on Google Fiber (341 comments)

everywhere Google Fiber has set up shop has completely changed the landscape of what these legacy internet providers offer. Google's rollout cannot happen fast enough and even if comcast matches it people will still dump them due to these types of policies.

TSA Prohibits Taking Discharged Electronic Devices Onto Planes

Dan667 Re:Actually makes good sense (702 comments)

sad anyone has the misconception these kinds of policies help. The goal of these policies is to make people who don't understand how easy it is to get whatever you want on an airplane to feel safe. You are not safer (it is just security theater), and you are just enabling your rights being taken away by thinking this is helping.

Germany Scores First: Ends Verizon Contract Over NSA Concerns

Dan667 economic might more powerful than spying (206 comments)

problem with the short sighted spying and lets spend crazy money on the military misses that economic might is certainly more important. You cannot pay for stupid expensive spying and military programs or twist the arms of other countries if you are not economically strong. Not only is the spying program Constitutionally wrong it is weakening the US in real and lasting ways.

Why Snowden Did Right

Dan667 Re:Snowden may be right - but he still broke the l (348 comments)

I think you are naive in how to get things actually changed. Those abusing their power and moving the US closer to a 1984 novel nightmare is a valid reason to not follow the "rules". It is unlikely any other method would have changed their behavior.

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

Dan667 mental illness is the problem (1633 comments)

The last mass violence spree was with a knife. So he is going to do what, ban knifes? Ban anything that can be used to hurt people?

The elephant in the room is that mental health services have been slashed for decades and even when people are identified as being unstable there is little that is or can be done to help them before they become violent.
