Obama Says He May Or May Not Let the NSA Exploit the Next Heartbleed

Dutchmaan Re:Let's keep it simple (134 comments)

And there isn't thing one you can do about it.

That's the only thing I disagree with... so I fixed it..

"And there isn't thing one you WILL do about it."

Obama Says He May Or May Not Let the NSA Exploit the Next Heartbleed

Dutchmaan No Rules, Just Right (134 comments)

Rules with broad sweeping generalized caveats basically means, no rules. It means WE (as in the people who made the rules) are going to decide on in a subjective way whether we broke the rules or not... and anyone who even knows the most basic aspects of human nature, knows that we as people in general don't like incriminating ourselves, and a government is just a group of people.

So this is basically just lip service from the government, to calm public anger while at the same time giving us the finger.

Illustrating the Socioeconomic Divide With iOS and Android

Dutchmaan Re:a car analogy (161 comments)

Many people would love a Ferrari, but they are expensive, so they drive Toyotas instead.

I know of VERY few people who lust after an Android device. They lust after Apple, and buy Android because that's what they can afford. The low end of ANY market is always a lot bigger than the high end. Cars, houses, phones, whatever. Toyota outsells Ferrari by quite a lot too.

oh that's a load of horseS#$T, I know a LOT of people who lust after flagship android devices, The Samsung Galaxy line and HTC models are amazing. iPhones are fine devices to be sure, but they aren't the "Ferrari's" of the world no matter how much your ego would like to believe that.

Job Automation and the Minimum Wage Debate

Dutchmaan Re:America is boned (870 comments)

"The concentration of government power has never produced positive results, rather the contrary. I hope you're enjoying this Orwellian nightmare." "This Orwellian Nightmare" has been going on for as long as governments have been able to collect information. It has nothing to do with "socialism"... The only difference being your indignation is born of someone you disagree with being in the whitehouse. Once it's someone you politically agree, I'm sure you'll forget about all your moral indignation.

Job Automation and the Minimum Wage Debate

Dutchmaan Re:America is boned (870 comments)

"You long for "true socialism" as defined in your texbook. Sorry, has never happened and will never happen."

...and you think that pure unregulated capitalism is going to happen? Pure unregulated capitalism is too unstable for a healthy economy. There needs to be a balance between regulation and unchecked greed. Also since you think America is too "socialist" right now, could you please provide some examples of more purely capitalist societies? I think you'll find the US isn't quite so "socialist" as you'd like to believe.

The Science of Solitary Confinement

Dutchmaan "Corrections" (326 comments)

This is what happens when you have a society that is more interested in punishing people than reforming. It's as if to say "We don't believe you'll ever change, or are capable of changing so we're going to crush you instead." All you have to do is read a forum on any news story relating to a crime to get a realistic view on how people view "corrections" should be carried out.... and we call other countries barbaric.

Edward Snowden Says NSA Engages In Industrial Espionage

Dutchmaan Re:A symbiotic relationship (212 comments)

What?! I'm not allowed to own a rail gun? This is clearly an infringement on the 2nd amendment! What's next, not allowing citizens to own pieces of artillery!?

Ancient Pompeii Diet Consisted of Giraffe and Other "Exotic'" Delicacies

Dutchmaan Re:Wow you guys are tards. (172 comments)

You will have to forgive my lack of intelligence on the matter, but what are "ners" and how do they relate to the intelligent narrative of the world and its history? Please explain with gadgetry references so that my feeble mind can grasp this child like concept.

USA Today Names Edward Snowden Tech Person of the Year

Dutchmaan Re:Correct! (228 comments)

Maybe just as repugnant but also *safely* half a world away... It would be like a magazine in the U.K. declaring Hitler, "Man of the Year" just after the blitz began.

USA Today Names Edward Snowden Tech Person of the Year

Dutchmaan Re:USA Today (228 comments)

Maybe you're confusing "person of the year" as something that means good guy or bad guy.. It doesn't. It just means someone that causes change or brings things to light or causes a big splash etc... someone who greatly impacts us.

Senators Propose Bill Prohibiting Phone Calls On Planes

Dutchmaan Re:How about at seat assignment time,, (513 comments)

While i agree with your sentiment, leaving regulation to the private sector is just as bad if not worse... Self regulation == no regulation
