Is the Outrage Over the FBI's Seattle Times Tactics a Knee-Jerk Reaction?

nwaack Yes, but (206 comments)

Yes, it's a knee-jerk reaction. However, our government agencies have done this to themselves. Most of the outrage is probably coming from people who saw "FBI" and "website" in the same sentence and just assumed they did something bad. I can't say I really blame them all that much.

Creationism Conference at Michigan State University Stirs Unease

nwaack Re:It makes you uneasy? (1007 comments)

YOU HYPOCRITES! The hypocrisy in half of these posts is incredible. You all freak out when you hear the government is spying on you or some other techy right is being violated, but as soon you hear these people are...GASP...Christians, then it's "I don't give a crap that they purchased the right to use the space, screw their first amendment rights and the horse they rode in on!!!!!!!!!!" Stop cherry-picking when it comes to certain groups' right to assemble and speak. It makes you all look like a bunch of ignorant d-bags.

To infer that gun ownership is matter of public health shows that you are bringing YOUR politics into this.

Conservative Groups Accuse FCC of Helping Net Neutrality Advocates File Comments

nwaack This is now a liberal vs. conservative thing? (283 comments)

I thought this was something that spanned across both side of the aisle, I guess I was wrong. However, now that I think about it, it seems like everything, down to what color Skittle is the best, is being made into a liberal vs. conservative these days.

Study: Multimedia Multitasking May Be Shrinking Human Brains

nwaack Re:Oh crap (87 comments)

How did the anonymous coward's first comment get modded as funny, but ArcadeMan's rebuttal get modded as a troll? Are /. members biased against web developers?

Marvel's New Thor Will Be a Woman

nwaack Still better than Archie's latest antics (590 comments)

At least they didn't have Thor get shot to death with an evil black gun whilst defending his homosexual best friend. Comic books need to stay away from politics...far, far away.

Three-Year Deal Nets Hulu Exclusive Rights To South Park

nwaack Unskippable commericals? No thanks. (138 comments)

Hulu Plus became a non-option for me when they decided to show unskippable commercials in their content. I'm amazed that they had 80 dollars to spend on new content, much less 80 million.

Humans Not Solely To Blame For Passenger Pigeon Extinction

nwaack Regardless of any 'sensitivities'... (53 comments)

White House Pressures Legislators Into Gutting USA FREEDOM Act

nwaack Re:Hope and change! (284 comments)

Whoa whoa whoa, back the truck up here a second. You're assuming that because I don't like the president I MUST be a conservative Republican. Not true, I am a moderate Libertarian, so every argument (and all the name calling) you used that was based on this false assumption is rendered invalid from the get-go. Now, on to the others:

We, the Americans that are in the far majority, LIKE 99% of Obamacare's provisions.

Are you delusional? There are multitudes of surveys and poles that say the exact opposite.

Stopped invading other countries is not well spun subjective opinion. It is a real fact. You called it an objective opinion because again, you don't like that we did it.

I wasn't talking about the war part being subjective, I was talking about the, "We stopped insulting every other country" part being subjective, which it is.

Let me ask you a question. Assume that a president gets elected and institutes a flat tax at 20%, makes abortion illegal, and makes it legal to conceal carry or open carry any gun - from a pistol to an ak-47. You personally would consider that man a great president, correct?

Hard to say, I liked Clinton, hated Bush and hate Obama.

President Obama has successfully delivered multiple large victories to the left.

Funny, I thought he was the President of the UNITED STATES, not the President of the liberals.

Yes, if Congress had been more liberal, he could have got more done - but you personally would have hated him even more. That is WHY you hate him - and also why we love him.

No, I hate him because he's been an incredibly bad president. Just like I hated Bush because he was an incredibly bad president. Don't tell me why I like or dislike something.

People like you are a huge part of what's wrong with the country today. It's this stupid us vs. them mentality and you've played right into it. I'm sorry you're a liberal Obama-loving shill. Hopefully at some point you'll start voting and thinking based on results, not on the party line.

White House Pressures Legislators Into Gutting USA FREEDOM Act

No. Vote Libertarian, Green Party, etc. If enough of us do this eventually it won't be a wasted vote.

White House Pressures Legislators Into Gutting USA FREEDOM Act

nwaack Re:Hope and change! (284 comments)

1) We got healthcare

We got a badly implemented form of mandatory health insurance (notice, I said 'health insurance,' NOT healthcare) that further penalizes the poor for not being able to afford it.

2) We killed Osama Bin Laden after Bush failed to do so for 7 years

Yep

3)We stopped insulting every other country and going to war on bad information.

This is purely some well-spun subjective opinion which means absolutely nothing in terms of hope and/or change.

SO basically the only hope and change that occurred was that Bin Laden was finally killed; and it wasn't like Obama had much, if anything to do with that directly. If you rate that as an A- I have some choice real estate to sell you.

The truly scary thing about all this is that you, along with so many others, have actually convinced yourself that he's a good president.

Microsoft Finally Selling Xbox One Without Kinect

nwaack This is what happens (227 comments)

when you treat optional peripherals as though they were as integral as the controller itself. I'd say that hopefully MS learned their lesson but we all know they haven't.

"Smart" Gun Seller Gets the Wrong Kind of Online Attention

nwaack Re:They're nuts but right (1374 comments)

Are you threatening me?

Do you see an "or else" in my post? I'm not threatening anyone, although I'm sure you'd like that because then you could shout from the rooftops that the nasty gun owner made naughty typings at you. Do you honestly think that gun owners are "clearly moron rednecks?" If so then you're stereotyping.

"Smart" Gun Seller Gets the Wrong Kind of Online Attention

nwaack Re:They're nuts but right (1374 comments)

Stop selling them to idiots with mental problems

I think that will kill the gun market right there.

That fact that this got modded +5 insightful is disgusting and scary all at the same time. Just because you don't like guns doesn't mean you get to paint gun owners as idiots with mental problems. I know that being anti-2nd amendment is currently the fashionable thing to do in liberal circles, but don't dare start trying to make me look like an inbred hick just because I happen to like to target shoot.

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

nwaack The intent is clear and obvious as-is (1633 comments)

If you have a basic understanding of how the English language was written at that time, and an understanding of the definition of the word 'militia' at the time of the writing of the amendment, there is no debate. The writers wanted everyone who could serve in a militia to be able to have a firearm. Those who could serve in a militia were THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES. There is no reason to think any differently.

What amazes me is how many of the same people who will state that the Bill of Rights clearly gives women the right to have an abortion, will twist the 2nd amendment around to say that citizens should not have guns. (Note I'm not trying to start a discussion on abortion, I'm just saying that if you can read abortion into the Bill of Rights, then gun ownership cannot be questioned.)
