Navy Debuts New Railgun That Launches Shells at Mach 7

El Puerco Loco Re:Power? (630 comments)

It's basically an electric version of the Abrams tank main gun. Similar projectile of around the same weight, but the Abrams can only fire it at around Mach 5.

L.A. Police: All Cars In L.A. Are Under Investigation

El Puerco Loco Re:In USSA, you are guilty until proven innocent. (405 comments)

"constitutional rights" weren't even a thing in this country until the 60s and 70s. The bill of rights was basically a dead letter from the day it was ratified until the civil rights era.

L.A. Police: All Cars In L.A. Are Under Investigation

El Puerco Loco Re:No expectation of privacy (405 comments)

It's not illegal for law enforcement to target you without probable cause. It is illegal to issue a warrant without probable cause. And since your license plate belongs to the DMV and not to you, if they are violating anyone's rights, it is those of the state DMV.

L.A. Police: All Cars In L.A. Are Under Investigation

El Puerco Loco Re:No expectation of privacy (405 comments)

you're an idiot. your precious constitution explicitly says that it means what the court says it means. and taking a picture of your license plate does not meet any definition of the words search or seizure. And your license plate is not even yours, it is the property of your state DMV, hence not included in the definition of your effects.

Russian State TV Anchor: Russia Could Turn US To "Radioactive Ash"

El Puerco Loco Re:And the US could turn Russia into vapor (878 comments)

Nobody has an interest in U.S. currency going into freefall. If that were to seem even remotely possible, China and everyone else would be tripping over their own balls to prop it up. Inflation favors the borrower.

El Puerco Loco Re:And the US could turn Russia into vapor (878 comments)

Only when it is not denominated in your own currency. But you knew that, just like every mendacious deficit hawk in congress. Printing more U.S. currency is the equivalent of mining gold in a gold standard economy.

El Puerco Loco Re: Fuck that (516 comments)

are you a complete fucking moron or just a racist wingnut troll? Parents of children born in the U.S. are not allowed to stay here just because their kid is a citizen. Arizona should be walled off and people like you sent there to live out your miserable lives.

This is totally about America. Shit hits the fan over there and we'll be swimming in a sea of borscht swilling, track-suited troglodytes, just like in the 90s but worse.
