Senate Bill Rewrite Lets Feds Read Your E-mail Without Warrants

andrew2325 incredible waste of man power and risk to innocent (403 comments)

It would cost a lot of money to pay people to read through spam, which resides in most of them. There is always a risk that the feds would end up using it as an excuse to target innocent civilians. Duh.

Housewives On Trial In China For Smuggling In iPhones

andrew2325 Re (150 comments)

It should be completely obvious that they smuggled them back because they had information on yen that the Chinese dictator does not want to be public. It is also obvious that they intentionally limit the supply for the same reason, and that is why there is so much strife there, and we are getting more strife here. The truth about what goes on upon censorship slaps a "benevolent" dictator in the face, one way or another.

GOP Study Committee Director Disowns Brief Attacking Current IP Law

andrew2325 i wrote my congressman about this (176 comments)

I wrote a quick email to my congressman, who is a Republican. I was a little sleepy when I did because I get I'll from time to time. I voted for him. Basically, I feel as though copyright law has oppressed people from time to time. More than you'd think. There are areas of our country that never get many books to read, artwork, or music. There are countries that would never get to read the Bible or even Edgar Allen Poe's poetry because of censorship. I'm all for paying the fiddler, but take a ride through the south right now if you have the guts to do so and see some of these areas I speak of man. Piracy can oppress or bring you out of it, depending. Literacy is important to the GOP, right?

David Cameron 'Orders New Curbs On Internet Porn'

andrew2325 personally... (345 comments)

I think it should be illegal for depictions of sodomy to be sold, as well as sites that do not require age verification through some type of identification that's hard to fake like through your we can because of the health risks involved with sodomy, which include std's, internal bleeding when the intestinal wall is ruptured, etc. I also think cartoons depicting it should be illegal also because of the risk of exposure to children, and their desensitization causes a further health risk, as well as its obviously abuse for a child to end up with this material by the permission of the child's parents, duh.

Moore's Law Is Becoming Irrelevant, Says ARM's Boss

andrew2325 Re:Not built for speed?!? (236 comments)

Most of these laws have exceptions, but this is also a major problem most people seem not to grasp. Moore's law had a good bit of truth to it, as does this. I wouldn't completely blame DRM either, but that's not far from the truth of it either. Night night.

Moore's Law Is Becoming Irrelevant, Says ARM's Boss

andrew2325 Re:Not built for speed?!? (236 comments)

They had an article about silicon valley's morals declining a while back. It should be obvious that ethic and efficiency correlate in most cases. Things can seem to function that belong in a garbage dumb. Must not have been around very long if you haven't seen a computer like that. There's hope for people, but the source code of windows and other oses should definitely be audited by trustworthy programmers. That's a bit of your problem there.

Do Recreational Drugs Help Programmers?

andrew2325 Re:maybe (878 comments)

The down side is the majority of the hippies that did a lot of drugs died young. From my own experience, its a bad idea to try to accomplish anything high. Coming from a guy who has done drugs, you'd be much better suited for your position sober. I would not employ you if I knew you were on drugs either. Get your lives together.

EFF Sues to Block New Internet Sex-Offender Law

andrew2325 my opinion (305 comments)

There should be more regulation of pornographic materials. Sodomy is illegal in this state, and its not because the lawmakers are ignorant. Its because it can be manslaughter. People die from intestinal walls being busted more often than you think, and honestly, I think depictions of it shouldn't be legal because of that fact. Also, I don't think any pornographic website should be easy for a child to enter, and I'm aware of net nanny. I'm also aware that a number of kids are like I was and net nanny wouldn't be much help. These are serious problems, and sex offenders have rights also, especially under certain circumstances. I do think they should be required to stay off of certain sites, depending. There's a good bit to how a law like that should be worded and enforced.

What's the Shelf Life of a Programmer?

andrew2325 The thing about it (388 comments)

Not every programmer thinks they know everything, even young ones. The shelf life of one depends on if he gets the training he needs, and whether or not he gets shot for snitching on dope dealers by crooked military officials who allowed the crap to get here. That's all I've been trying to say. That's the thing. That's what I've been trying to tell yas.

Is Silicon Valley Morally Bankrupt and Toxic?

andrew2325 Re:Since when is Slashdot a political site? (469 comments)

"Elections" right... Not to sound like one of those loons that sits around and reads conspiracy theories about the "illuminati," but, honestly, do you not see the corruption that goes on in this country? There's obviously some of that going on, and there have been places that were proven to be doing this intentionally in recent years. So to what degree does electioneering actually occur? How much of what we hear about is fact and how much is fictional propaganda. Seems like there is a good bit of this to me. Some of it has been exposed on the news publicly, and for every case that is revealed, it's often censored to a degree to sedate people from having more riots, which I also disagree with. Civil disobedience is one thing, murder is something you have to live with, if you live.

Is Silicon Valley Morally Bankrupt and Toxic?

andrew2325 Duh (469 comments)

Well, 90% of what I see here denies the existence of God. That should hit the nail on the head, but if that isn't enough for you, it's cold hard fact that their morals are crumbling by the legislation that is being passed over there, like making it illegal for a personal whom has coined themselves "gay" to go to a locally run sexual rehabilitation center, since it's illegal to open one there. It should also be completely obvious by the number of allegations and proven allegations that they often use slave labor over seas, and the crime rate. Duh.

26 Nuclear Power Plants In Hurricane Sandy's Path

andrew2325 RE: (392 comments)

I wouldn’t worry about this too much, but it is a concern. There is a nuclear reactor that Katrina swept over during it’s devastation. It’s not certain that it will cause that type of damage to any of these plants, like the article plainly says. I would be concerned though. It’s not paranoia when it’s possible or even probable, but I hope the operators know what a hurricane can do.

Dr. Richard Dawkins On Why Disagreeing With Religion Isn't Insulting

andrew2325 Re:Dawkins: Islam "1 of the great evils of the wor (1152 comments)

I agree that Islam is a serious problem. There are serious problems with some hindu and buddhist beliefs, thinking it's okay for people to suffer the way they do and not even try to help. I am a Christian, and I don't believe the world is as old as scientists say. One reason behind this is instrumentation does lie. I've seen someone resurrect, amongst numerous other things we won't even go into. I'm not even saying this to argue with you. There is no need to try to state a debate with me because I would likely ignore any further comments that try to discredit things I believe, which is not ignorance because I know nearly every side to that argument. What I've seen is not your everyday phenomenon, explainable by swamp gases or delusions.

Dr. Richard Dawkins On Why Disagreeing With Religion Isn't Insulting

andrew2325 Well... (1152 comments)

I disagree with the theory of evolution, and I am a creationist. But, I think you'd either have to be blind or completely ignorant to agree with everything that goes on within churches and has gone on throughout history. Of course some things do adapt, the thing about it is if you knew some of the things I survived, you would definitely question it.

Is Non-Prescription ADHD Medication Use Ever Ethical?

Is Non-Prescription ADHD Medication Use Ever Ethical?

andrew2325 rarely ethical, (487 comments)

There may be a circumstance where it might be deemed ethical, but don't lie to yourself. Most amphetamine addicts die young, and that's usually why they got hooked in the first places. There's fifty shades of gray, and it's best you don't step into the first one.

The Three Pillars of Nokia Strategy Have All Failed

andrew2325 Re:Old proverb (409 comments)

You know.. Everyone's made mistakes like this in some ways. It's how we learn hopefully. Perhaps he will learn a lesson that I didn't learn before I really messed some stuff up: if you do something other than what's been messing things up royally, you might actually have a chance at getting important things done. I don't think he's a total loser, but it looks like a big mess to me. The kinds of messes that end in squatting in a house with no central heat and air if you aren't careful, and even having the doctors throw you to the worms, resulting in self medication and a lot of agony.
