It would be nice if we lived in a world where whistleblowers like Snowden were protected and lying sniveling civil "servants" who worked at the IRS could be forced to tell us, the people, how they carried out their jobs.
But alas, we don't live in that world.
Why the hell does anyone continue to trust this administration at all!
I must say that I find it incredibly interesting that the abortion clinic regulations that have been passed in Texas are being ridiculed so heavily by the progressives. It'll put them out of business? You don't say. Regulations impact businesses and impose costs on them?? Reallly??!!
I'd actually give a shit about their arguments if they'd ever ever ever, even once stood up against regulating ANY other industry. Why is it that other businesses need to suck it up and deal with all the regulations the progressives love? But when its the abortion industry that is facing regulations, then it'll "put them out of business"? Progressives have never worried about business' abilities to deal with regulations up to now. So screw them on this one. Either you admit regulations affect businesses uniformly or shut the hell up.
Re: TRUE! You need to stop pretending gov't is EVER good.
It still boggles my mind how you can have so much hatred of the rich and be so fucking clueless that the media companies arguing for special copyright treatment from the government are those same rich bastards you hate so much.
That's what makes him such a terrifying politician.
He needs to look in the damn mirror. El Presidente's in banana republics use these kind of tactics over their subjects all the time. I am sick and tired of our politicians trying to emulate petty dictators!!
I have to agree that Beck's writing has undertones similar to Orwell. You obviously don't politically agree with Beck, but his works moving up the lists on Amazon are IMHO directly related to the same trend moving Orwell's up.
This is the kind of vile scummy attack ad that substitutes for political "debate' nowadays. I may have concerns about copyright, but I'm not concerned enough about it to fight for the assholes that are dragging our political discourse into the gutter.
If you disagree with someone then make your case and back your argument. This whiny, "so and so's opinion differs from mine, the need to lose their job" crap is just another spin on character assignation.
It seems to me that too much now, people go to the personal attack first and argue their case, well, never.
It is my firm belief that the Anti-GMO crowd will not truly believe that their work is done until they have hampered the agricultural industry so much that famine once again becomes a MAJOR problem for the world.
Advances in crop yields through science helped avoid cataclysmic problems in the 60s-70s. The anti-GMO crowd wants to stop those kind of advances cold and relegate the globe to famine again.
If enough countries are strong-armed into creating hyper crappy laws at Hollywoods request, it will be real soon now that we'll hear Hollywood bitching and complaining that the US needs new stronger laws -- like all these other countries.
