World's First 3D Printed Estate Coming To New York

everett Re:Let us redefine "progress" (108 comments)

That brings the dream of home ownership within the reach of a lot of people who wouldn't have been able to afford it before. We live in exciting times.

Unless said people derived their income from building homes, which a lot of the skilled trades still do.

School District Sued By ACLU Over Student's Free Speech Rights

everett Re:What about the parents? (466 comments)

There's also no country called "Spain" or "Germany", those are just the names we gave to countries that have rightful names. So it's only fair that they can call us whatever they want in return.

School District Sued By ACLU Over Student's Free Speech Rights

everett Re:What about the parents? (466 comments)

"That is a hard thing though, most people are too afraid." and rightly so, how many would stand in front of an armored column in defiance of totalitarianism. I recall there only being one man in the photos from Tienanmen Square

Super Bowl Bust: Feds Grab 307 NFL Websites; $4.8M

everett Re:China (198 comments)

if the victim of the rape, murder, or theft is a corporation and not an "actual" person, then yes. Your argument would then be congruent and I would support them paying for the services of the government.

Christmas Always On Sunday? Researchers Propose New Calendar

everett Re:Everything would be on the same day every year. (725 comments)

I believe GP was referring to the worship of Jesus, a specific jew who in the christian mythos lives in "heaven above" aka outer space. Nothing about this implies anything negative about Jews or the Jewish faith, can you point out the antisemitism? I guess maybe the value judgement that belief in Jesus as a divine being is "stupid", but that's a pretty common belief amongst the non-religious and hardly restricted to Semitic faiths

Judge Dismisses 'Other OS' Class-Action Suit Against Sony

everett Re:And the USAF (403 comments)

Under the license that you are offered, you're correct. I imagine it's perfectly possible that the USAF is able to acquire different licensing that allows them to accomplish their mission with Sony's hardware.

The Mexican Cartel's Hi-Tech Drug Tunnels

everett Re:It's working (448 comments)

Bad form to reply to one's self but I wanted to further elaborate with a specific example.

If a majority of the people in California decide that they want the option to purchase and smoke marijuana (which recent polls have indicated is in fact the case), and the majority of Californians are willing to accept all of the consequences listed above, what right does anyone living outside of California have to tell them no?

Now should the other states (aka the federal government) be able to withhold assistance to the state of California? Absolutely. And that's something that very well should happen - "No more Medicaid or Medicare for any California citizens if your state legalizes marijuana" would just be one more bullet item on the list of consequences that would need to be factored in. But Drugs are not an evil that is on-par with slavery, and as such it's ridiculous for the Federal government to force their will on any state regarding that matter.

The Mexican Cartel's Hi-Tech Drug Tunnels

everett Re:It's working (448 comments)

Clearly the correct answer then is to allow the local governments to choose for themselves whether or not they want to allow drugs to be legal in their locality. Since, you know, they're the ones whose police forces will have to deal with all this stuff.

Oh right, that war was already fought and lost.
