Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

misexistentialist Re:Flip Argument (1087 comments)

You're skipping the part where the cop initiated twice, backing his car up and engaging from the seated position, and then getting out of his car after he was clearly outmatched. He drew his gun in a fistfight before his life was threatened, then he initiated an armed pursuit after the fight was over. If you could see yourself following this sequence of actions you are either dumb or crazy, and without a badge you would get 20 years, Wilson would get on the stand and say what a danger to the community you are.

LinkedIn Study: US Attracting Fewer Educated, Highly Skilled Migrants

misexistentialist Re:Perspective (323 comments)

the "I'm alright Jack, screw you" attitude of a *lot* of people - weirdly enough those who often really *aren't* alright,

You hear this line from many comfortable people, who being set for life, are eager to screw over everyone else with high taxes and regulations to make themselves feel even more superior. If you think you have too much sell your house and give the money to charity. Nah, your humanitarianism will look more like imposing a 25% VAT on toilet paper and doubling the price of gas for the good of the little people. Businesses cut back on hiring, can't afford anything extra in life after taxes to support government bureaucrats making 300% the average income, but thanks for the free healthcare, almost as good as they get in prison!

Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games

misexistentialist Re:It's a stupid test (641 comments)

Bechdel is a dyke, it's no surprise that she only wants to see women who have nothing to do with men. Strange how a society that is allegedly inherently bigoted constantly caters to deviants; the truth is society tends to be more tolerant and inclusive than it rightfully should be.

US School Installs 'Shooter Detection' System

misexistentialist Re:20-100 computers worth of cost. (698 comments)

More like the cost of a deputy assistant superintendent's secretary. You could require every school employee to be armed and trained as a condition of hiring, no different than jobs that require you to own a car. But actually the internet made these secondary schools obsolete years ago, the kids should be engaged in working and studying what they want, not being abused as pawns in a giant scam.

US School Installs 'Shooter Detection' System

misexistentialist Re:Dumb idea ... Lots of assumptions .... (698 comments)

People who can be demonstrated to be dangerous are already locked up. Claiming that someone is too mentally unfit to be trusted with basic rights while they are allowed to raise children, sign loans, operate heavy machinery etc., not to mention left to be wholly responsible for their own support and welfare, is insane. Of course it's becoming harder and harder to distinguish between the inside and the outside of asylums as the the general population is increasingly monitored, controlled, and subsidized.

How To End Online Harassment

misexistentialist Re:misogynists on the intarwebz? WHAT U SAY? (834 comments)

Publicly promoting themselves and asking for money has nothing to do with assisting a police investigation. And do you think they don't want to ban "abusive" speech? Well, that's another way of saying any speech they don't like or that can be interpreted to represent a thought that they don't approve

Bounties vs. Extreme Internet Harassment

misexistentialist Re:It Remains a Journalism Scandal. Deal With It. (716 comments)

A woman stole Letterman's car and broke into his home repeatedly, that's what harassment of a public figure looks like, not an internet communication, 99.9% of which are meaningless. Of course he is a powerful man while girls can suffer fatal head injuries by fainting at the sight of a spider, but Brianna Wu is some kind of transsexual, and does not qualify for smelling salts.

Free Broadband For NYC Public Housing?

misexistentialist Re:Use taxes for this (250 comments)

Why should someone who is not a Comcast customer pay for subsidies given out by Comcast?! If you don't like the added fee tell Comcast to lower the rest of the bill instead of trying to mug somebody else

Shooting At Canadian Parliament

misexistentialist Re:Dear Canada.... (529 comments)

Canada should buy all the women then, would cost less than a couple of missiles, and evacuate the rest, but of course Canadian taxpayers don't really have an interest in foreigners, but Canadian oil companies want to keep their foothold in the Middle East

No reason to obey unjust laws. So you go to jail, it's at a cost to the state and you are liberated from paying taxes.
