US Air Force Selects Boeing 747-8 To Replace Air Force One

charles05663 Re:I think they should make him fly coach (291 comments)

No, I think if he really cared for the people HE would step outside.

Have we not been under as state of emergency for a very long time? It was the "excuse" the government used to grab power.

I have never seen any useful work come out of the current administrations White House. So, I think the United States would be better served if they did not pretend to do work.

charles05663 I think they should make him fly coach (291 comments)

I think they should make the president and all of his staff fly coach like the rest of us. Then he would get an appreciation for what it feels like in the real world.

Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone

charles05663 Re:Peons don't get to have kids (784 comments)

If your rich you don't have to raise kids. You hire undocumented workers to do that for you. By the time they are 18, you wonder who the strangers are in the house. And all I can say fuck CPS. No one knows how to raise her children better than their own parents. I would certainly not want anyone to instill values into my children other than me.

I think all hackers who join the Army would like to experience what a real CoD would be like. It really is exciting when it is for real.

Prosecutors Raid LG Offices Over Alleged Vandalism of Samsung Dishwashers

charles05663 Re: Vandalism unnecessary. (87 comments)

It is the Wal-Mart effect. Wal-Mart perfected the notion that they can sell insanely cheap crap that will break after a few years and will need replacing instead of repairing. As we can see, people bought into it.

High School Student Builds Gun That Unlocks With Your Fingerprint

charles05663 If the finger print reader is anything like the... (600 comments)

If the finger printer reader is anything like the iPhone 5s+ then I am in trouble. I cannot unlock my iPhone with my right thumb print and have to use my left thumb and that stinks to be me because I am right handed. Guns are pretty safe and have been for a while. Kids who get accidentally killed by the parents' guns have irresponsible parents. If I mishandled a gun while I was growing up I got quite the whipping to be taught a lesson. I guess you cannot whip children without being dragged to jail. Funny how children are out of control today.

Why China Is Worried About Japan's Plutonium Stocks

charles05663 Under the increasing pressure from China (398 comments)

I would expect Japan to re-militarize. With China ever increasingly flexing its military power in the region it might be good to have a strong military in Japan. And notice it is the Chinese who are worried more then anyone else.

The constitution say no cruel and unusual punishment. The Soviets and Chinese have executed 10's of millions of people with a bullet to the head. It is quick, therefore not cruel and not unusual for it has been used millions of times.

Oklahoma Botched an Execution With Untested Lethal Injection Drugs

charles05663 Re:Cruel and Unsual Punishment (1198 comments)

At one time, the world was thought to be flat, and after that, many thought that the universe rotated around the earth (and plenty of GOP still do). Is that what you want to go back to, or are you going to allow science and knowledge to take hold and make changes in our policy?

At the time this country was found both of these statements were know to be false. How is this related?

Oklahoma Botched an Execution With Untested Lethal Injection Drugs

charles05663 Re:Hang them (1198 comments)

+1 on the .22lr. My guess is it is not used because it is up close and personal. Maybe they could have convicted killers draw straws do the execution. I know the Communists prefer the bullet to the head method. Heck, the used to bind people together so the could perform multiple executions at the same time to save ammo. And on a plus, it would not be fail the "cruel and unusual" test. Both the Soviets and the Chinese have executed 10's of millions with this method.

Oklahoma Botched an Execution With Untested Lethal Injection Drugs

charles05663 Cruel and Unsual Punishment (1198 comments)

The framers of the Constitution and Bill Of Rights did not think it to be "cruel and unusual" to hang people. Why do people today think it is? Why not go back to what was acceptable when the foundations of our nation were laid.
