MonkWB Re:Fed up (379 comments)

The argument is that this is not "money for the purpose of gambling." These are poker sights, the argument is that this is "money for a game of skill."

Emergency Dispatcher Fired For Facebook Drug Joke

MonkWB Re:no (631 comments)

I've seen many drunken fights and brawls started in America and while I was traveling around Europe started by Army dudes on weekend leave. They never see the true consequences because they keep doing it. If they are getting severely punished then they are just stupid for continuing the same behavior over and over.

Or clothing, or rudimentary hunting implements. He just eats what he can gather/kill with his bare naked hands.

MonkWB Re:Torrentfreak or slashdot? (464 comments)

You are confusing nerds with "kids who know how to use a PC."

Right, but you could say that this is more like finding out they had a night with your daughter, and then them coming to you to ask for 30 more seconds.

Court Reinstates Proof-of-Age Requirement For Nude Ads

MonkWB Re:Supreme Court (267 comments)

That is a school setting, there are special circumstances there. Young and impressionable. This is about the companies always retaining proof of age. Not the same thing at all.

US Has Been In Recession Since December 2007

MonkWB Re:A few thoughts (540 comments)

I meant that comment more in the context of the government and market merger. We as a society are mostly capitalist, but I don't want my government to be pure capitalist.

US Has Been In Recession Since December 2007

MonkWB Re:A few thoughts (540 comments)

Capitalistic systems only work when the participants have faith in the system -- when that faith collapses, for whatever reason, you get a recession. And that's a normal and accepted part of the cycle.

Seems like a pretty silly yet serious weakness for such a widely promoted system.
