Obama Administration Argues For Backdoors In Personal Electronics

Jeff Flanagan Re:I call BS on this one.... (450 comments)

The Democrats are center-right, pro-big business like a Republican before they went off the deep end over the last few decades. The Republicans are far-right, religious lunatic, white supremacists. Huge difference. If we pretend there's no difference, the theocrats win.

Obama Administration Argues For Backdoors In Personal Electronics

Jeff Flanagan Re:Let me be the first to say (450 comments)

>who is as Democrat as it can possibly get..

I think you mean "Democratic."

>Somewhere in Chicago a community is missing its organizer.

Oh, I see the problem. You've internalized Republican wingnut derp. Only a wingnut would hold being a community organizer against someone.

Obama Administration Argues For Backdoors In Personal Electronics

Jeff Flanagan Re:Update to Godwin's law? (450 comments)

>It's one thing to defend the US from outside dangers. It's quite another to regard the citizens themselves as the danger.

Some of the citizens are crazy and really are a danger to us. Have you not noticed how the deranged right-wingers, who circled the wagons around a cluster of toxic behaviours and absurd beliefs, have been stockpiling guns and publicly fantasizing about overthrowing our democratically elected government?

The backward "conservatives" can't win elections outside of our derpy states, so they hoard guns and plan a revolution. Of course there's nothing actually conservative about these radical theocrats who want to remake America in their idiotic image. Do you not want the government to keep an eye on this crazed, violent, uneducated subculture?

Back To Faxes: Doctors Can't Exchange Digital Medical Records

Jeff Flanagan Re:NYT is wrong... (223 comments)

>yes we still use faxes in our office much more than any other method: THEY ARE SECURE.

Regular faxes are absolutely NOT secure, though a secure "fax" server can be. It's unusual for anyone who needs to be HIPAA compliant to use unencrypted means to send patient data. Leaving patient data in a fax receiving bin would result in fines if you're caught.

The $1,200 DIY Gunsmithing Machine

Jeff Flanagan Re:the solution: (491 comments)

But Cody Wilson really is a libertarian nutball. It's an accurate description, not random name-calling. He's disconnected from reality, and thinks that he can bypass laws intended to keep weapons designed to kill a large number of people out of the hands of criminals and the mentally unstable.

Your post makes it pretty clear that you're one of the deeply-confused gun-nuts who thinks that banning guns designed for mass murder means banning defensive guns.

Matchstick and Mozilla Take On Google's Chromecast With $25 Firefox OS Dongle

Jeff Flanagan Re:Not sure how well it will work (102 comments)

I have two, and I don't think that most of us have tablets or XBoxes attached to all our TVs. With Chromecast I can start watching a video on my Theater PC, then cast it to a bedroom or living room TV without needing to have PCs or consoles in the other rooms.

Google To Require As Many As 20 of Its Apps Preinstalled On Android Devices

Jeff Flanagan Re:Empty shell of a Facebook account (420 comments)

It also allows you to comment on sites that use FB comments. Everyone should have a fake FB account to bypass the harm FB has caused on other sites. An empty Yahoo Mail account, and G+ account under a real-looking but false name was useful for the same reason until they dropped the real name requirement. No one asked for ID when I picked the name of someone I haven't talked to in decades.

Solar System's Water Is Older Than the Sun

Jeff Flanagan Re:About Time (173 comments)

Not so surprisingly the bible missed absolutely everything that wasn't known to its human authors at the times it was written, so it hasn't held up well except with people who desire a fantasy-based worldview so much that they permanently suspend their disbelief. We all do this with fiction, but the bible-people take it further than the craziest Trekker with a "Starbase" in their mom's garage.

Solar System's Water Is Older Than the Sun

Jeff Flanagan Re: Score one for the other team (173 comments)

People who are in cults try to make everything about their cult. Do you understand that gods are a subset of an imaginary set (the supernatural)?

Jeff Flanagan Re: Score one for the other team (173 comments)

That order seems...odd. 1 and 2 are equally absurd. Do you understand that the supernatural is imaginary?

Drones Reveal Widespread Tax Evasion In Argentina

Jeff Flanagan Re:Just what we need. More compliance! (208 comments)

Sure, but if you were a foolish Libertarian like many of the less intelligent people here, you'd think that taxes are theft, and that tax-evasion increasing the burden on your neighbors is completely fine.

Drones Reveal Widespread Tax Evasion In Argentina

Jeff Flanagan Re:Why not google (208 comments)

While Google maps would catch some of the tax-evaders, drones catch the ones who built homes after the latest Google Maps data update for the region.

In your mind enslaving CEOs is the only alternative to paying them more in a year than the rest of us earn in a lifetime?

BlackBerry Launches Square-Screened Passport Phone

Jeff Flanagan Re:Awful awful timing of launch (189 comments)

There isn't a lot of overlap between the market for this device and an iPhone, so there's really not much of a comparison to be made.

This device could be much more useful than regular smart phones to older people with failing vision.

Obama Presses Leaders To Speed Ebola Response

Jeff Flanagan Re:What good is aid going to do (221 comments)

>This is full on Breitbart.com level of nutjobbery.

The Republicans put a lot of work into disconnecting conservatives from reality, it would be surprising if it didn't spill over onto sites that aren't devoted to lying to conservatives to keep them confused and hateful.

ISIS Bans Math and Social Studies For Children

Jeff Flanagan Re:I've never understood this... (981 comments)

>They don't want the kids to learn science or even mention things like evolution...
>Is their religion on such shaky grounds that it can't stand up to some critical thinking?

Name one religion than isn't on shaky ground and can stand up to critical thinking. Religion is way past its sell-by date, and is obviously pure fantasy.
