40% Of People On Terror Watch List Have No Terrorist Ties

PoisOnouS Re:So 60% positive ? (256 comments)

They've already more or less admitted that they have absolutely no control with these lists, and that any agency, for any reason, without any actual evidence can add someone to the watch lists.

Let's think this through for a minute... So you would rather that the list be made up of persons with known terrorism group allegiances, and that any and all supporting information also be cataloged in the same place so that the list is audit-ready to outline exactly who is a terrorist, why, and how we know that? Yeah fucking right. The list itself would be a roadmap for how the US finds and tracks terrorists. You're just going to have to unwad your panties on this one, you don't get to decide who the defense department targets since you are completely unqualified to do so and frankly, don't know shit about mitigating the risk of terrorism.

Apparently, the people in charge are also completely unqualified. By your logic, we should simply sit back until they've fingered everyone as a potential terrorist. Then there won't be anyone left to complain.

CIA Director Brennan Admits He Was Lying: CIA Really Did Spy On Congress

PoisOnouS Re:When will we... (266 comments)

Fuck the apology. Put him in jail.

At this point there is no choice but to assume that when the CIA and NSA say they're in compliance with the law, they're bloody well lying.

When they're outright lying to the people who oversee them, they've become a criminal organization.

Going to jail would be the sincerest form of apology. At least then we'd know they're really sorry, although not necessarily for the correct reason.

If you are old enough to join the military and die in defense of your country, you are old enough to drink. Raise the minimum age for military service to 21 and your viewpoint might have merit.

Did Internet Sales Tax Backers Bribe Congress? (Video)

PoisOnouS Re:If you want campaign finance reform (317 comments)

Wouldn't this promote even more distasteful behavior? A politician with nothing to lose at the next election is likely to do almost anything... I'm not sure most of these people have the self-control or patience to consider a future term that might be 4 years beyond the end of their current term. D.

My grandfather was an engineer on the Newfie Bullet. He assures me that any saboteurs would have blown themselves up in frustration while waiting for their target to arrive. D.

Copyright Law Mashup Moving Through Congress

PoisOnouS Re:Won't someone think of the trees? (352 comments)

They don't have time? They fucking well BETTER have the time, isn't that what they're in office for? To KNOW what the legislation they're voting on is for? Don't they have staff to distill the essence of these things for them? How dare anyone in office claim they don't have time to read legislation that may impact the lives of the people who VOTED for them. And fuck you for thinking it's okay for them to shirk this responsibility. POS
