Satellite Images Show Russians Shelling Ukraine

flyneye Re:So (278 comments)

Historically speaking, war over border, authority and assets wrote the history books. From failures to new republics to squabbles over price tags, we fought over turf and the right to rule over it. Nothing to see here, just another real estate squabble. It may even be Darwinian from some perspective. Orwellian would be a nice analogy, but Hollywood made that , so you can expect someone will get sued over copyright. The biggest lawyer backed by the biggest wallet always win, I'll put my money on Hollywood to win the Rusko/Ukranian conflict. Mark my words.

Verizon Now Throttling Top 'Unlimited' Subscribers On 4G LTE

flyneye Re:1 or 1 million (220 comments)

Out of the frying pan and into another frying pan. Just wait a minute or two and you will switch to AT&T, then Virgin, then Cricket, then finally you will be disgusted enough to hollow out a log and beat it with your old smartphones.

Two South African Cancer Patients Receive 3D Printed Titanium Jaw Implants

flyneye Re:You had me at (68 comments)

They lost me at Titanium Jaw Implants. Titanium has a nasty tendency to foster bacterial growth in spite of its good attributes.
Gimme a high density plastic any day.
No I don't care about any sentences beginning with " Research shows..." or " Records prove", as they represent the OPINIONS of those promoting the problem.
Like asking a car salesman, what the best car on the lot is....

When Spies and Crime-Fighters Squabble Over How They Spy On You

flyneye Re:What's it going to take? (118 comments)

When I was in grade school, a kid in New York researched and BUILT an atomic bomb sans uranium. All he got was a good grade in school, the bomb taken away, national attention and probably a pretty cushy job in a government funded lab somewhere.

Still searching instructables......

You mean like the freewheeling misinterpretations of the Supreme Court for the last century?
Perhaps you would like a look... http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/G...
You would think they had no command of the language at all, no recollection of history, or any idea of the intent of the founders.
How's that for "just putting the head in"?

When Spies and Crime-Fighters Squabble Over How They Spy On You

flyneye Re: The DEA and CIA are both rogue agencies. (118 comments)

The Federal Government of the United States is (supposed to be) a shell for the business interests of the several united states. It would be more precise to refer to
a person of a state by the proper state derived name; Coloradan, Oklahoman,Georgian, New Yorker, Califuckhead, etc.
It distinguishes a person more closely to the culture they spring from like the difference between saying European or German( although it may be nice to break this subset down to their staadts as well.).
So, do we generalize and quibble or do we call a spade, a spade?

"Like it or not, Canadians are american, as are mexicans, columbians, brazillians and so forth."

Just goes to show how ineffective the Border Patrol really is....
Seriously, as Americans; Mexicans, Columbians and Brazilians deserve to be capitalized.
Not sure who started the mis-label Americans as applied to the U.S., but it does sound better than U.S.ers, which is pretty awkward at best.
Just call us "Chief" or "Sir" with the sort of respect that doesn't get your nose broken.LOL

Australian Government Moving Forward With Anti-Piracy Mandate For ISPs

flyneye Re:Australia Deserves it. (116 comments)

Nope, my rock that keeps bears away is .45 cal. brass jacketed. Works good for prevention of home intrusion, car jacking, keeping the ex-wifes husband away, and any previous business associates polite and on point. Not much different than rattlesnakes, skunks and badgers, nothing ever really changes.

The fact is I DO say anything I want to to anyone. I always have. I know you are itching to pull out the bit about shouting " fire" in a crowded theater, but that actually constitutes a criminal attack and not free speech at all.I do have free speech, how I use it is no different than how I use a car, a hammer or a weapon, all of which I am free to use as well. To dredge up the bit about police is pedestrian and generic as well. Knowing full well that police are just as able as any human to commit atrocities, they too may be put down. Granted, it may provide a sticky situation and legal entanglements, but in the right situation I would just as easily shoot a cop as a crackhead with a knife and bad intent. Being in the right ,I would face a trial by a jury of my peers and be vindicated, so you can stuff your knee-jerk pissant talking points up your urethra. Perhaps it would serve you better to know what the hell you are talking about before jealously rationalizing your impotence to demand your right from your own dictatorial government. People own guns, subjects don't. Fight for your rights to life , liberty and the pursuit of happiness or quit defending your oppressors in hopes of fitting in with the sheep, you appear to be a sissified ass-kisser.

flyneye Re: Australia Deserves it. (116 comments)

Nope, it's called self defense, standing your ground, protecting yourself. Vigilantism would have me hunting down the offender and torching his house with his family inside.
Big difference. Get over your whiny self.

The Army Is 3D Printing Warheads

flyneye Re: I agree (138 comments)

Democracy bombs should have been outlawed in Geneva. What a horrible thing to do to another country! It's like giving others venereal warts on purpose.
There needs to be a vaccine for democrazy.

The Army Is 3D Printing Warheads

flyneye Re:I agree (138 comments)

Yes, safer would be more accurate to reach an intended target. Perhaps" farther" would be a consideration as well. Greater damage upon impact would be a nice goal of efficiency, as well.

I wonder if there are some designs for printing bullets to reload in MY guns, based on this concept. That would be awesome.
Perhaps dimpling them like a golf ball, or adding an explosive payload inside....

Western US States Using Up Ground Water At an Alarming Rate

flyneye Re:And what's even funnier (367 comments)

"The addition of fluoride to drinking water in the USA is well below the rates required for fluorosis."

            Well someone says so anyway, gosh doctors are always right aren't they. Especially the ones paid to say so. They also seem to prescribe more medicine than is necessary, that also cause more symptoms than they cure, but that facillitates prescribing more medicines. Uhm, yeah major public advancements, you can keep them to yourself, thanks. I prefer not to be a gullible dumbass.

Australian Government Moving Forward With Anti-Piracy Mandate For ISPs

flyneye Re:Australia Deserves it. (116 comments)

Yeah, the war powers act has been in constant effect since Korea, since we never actually have NOT been at war with them since the 50s. No treaty has ever been signed. The government uses THIS to justify any and all things unconstitutional, like homeland security, spying on the people, or anything else that has made you say; "how can they do that?", since then. Now you know.

Australian Government Moving Forward With Anti-Piracy Mandate For ISPs

flyneye Re:Australia Deserves it. (116 comments)

A right would be pointless if there were never an occasion to use it. So far the existence of the right has made an environment where its exercise has not yet been necessary.It serves the people well.

The 3rd is reflective of the times during the Revolutionary War in which the Kings troops were billeted in houses of common people who were forced to feed and shelter their oppressors. This of course will also apply to domestic troops, police, NSA, or anyone in government. It was a concern once, who is to say it couldn't be in the future as well. Like I say, the right creates an environment.

I personally like living in a place where I can say what I choose, right or wrong, to anyone, anytime without fear of repercussions based on their office, class, religion, ethnicity and if there is; I can sue the pants off them in court and make a public spectacle of them. I notice this right gets plenty of exercise.

Open carry of weapons has always been around, but seldom used. Rural places have farmers that will carry a pistol on their hip, now and then,(like an old uncle or two of mine, and my grandfather as well) to ward off rattlesnakes, skunks, badgers or the neighbors illegal Mexican farmhands burgling outbuildings, neighbors dog raiding the chickenhouse,( all of which actually occurred) etc. I can recall seeing one walk into the bank to do business, without raising anyones eyebrows, with a revolver on his hip. Today, with concealed carry and the training that accompanies it, I hear many MORE tales of those defending their selves, family and property, successfully. Occasionally I will hear of misadventures, but then, if you license a nation to drive, you will occasionally have collisions, so what?

If you actually use logic on the situation, the nuts are those who would deny people the right to defend themselves and their families. There is NO defense for this stance that doesn't arise from selfish fear placed in their heads by the ignorant. The state is incapable of providing police protection around the clock to everyone. Notice the police show up AFTER a crime has been commited, not before. Guns are an important part of a life in pursuit of happiness like a set of wrenches is an important part of doing maintenance on your car. Further, the intention of the right exists, should the people ever need to take back control of their Constitutional government, no matter what government licensed lawyers my lie about. THAT, is the reason the issue gets ANY attention at all in D.C.
