The Constitution, meh, who needs it.

Mandating displays of patriotism are what they do in places like North Korea.
#BoycottNFL


Interestingly enough, the people demanding that others salute the flag against their wills are also the ones who lean towards a fascist dictatorship as their preferred governance, yet they are the ones who think they are the true patriots and "real 'Muricans". They couldn't be farther from the truth.

Much of what is going on in the world is being caused by those in power creating artificial shortages of food, pay, housing, etc. The people at the bottom have to fight tooth and nail for any tiny gain.

The fascists show up and blame all of these problems on "the others". The Mexicans, the black people, the Muslims...anyone who is not "you" has caused your housing costs to rise or your pay to fall, or your healthcare costs to rise.

When, in fact, all of these problems are being caused by plutocratic control of our government. We are told there is "no money" for housing, food, education, roads. Meanwhile, the rich sit on 85 trillion dollars. We just voted to give them another 1.5 trillion while our government has a budget DEFICIT. Insanity. The country is being pillaged by those at the top, and low-information right wingers think they need to worry about a few million immigrants and building a wall.

Blaming Crimea and the Arab Spring on Obama Rolleyes2
This is the most retarded and delusion list I've read on here.
Can't tell if trolling or if people out there are actually stupid enough to believe in this bullshit.

Yeah, might want to go back and look at what Bush did if you want to see the seeds for the Arab spring...you know, destabilizing the whole Middle East and all that.

Just like the GOP tries to blame our current debt and deficit on Obama when GW left office with a 1.1 trillion *per year* budget deficit and Obama had cut that deficit in half by the end of his second term.

And he specifically TRIED to cut it further, but the GOP wasn't interested in working with him on *any* legislation.

Party before country - GOP motto.

Facts are:

The USPS is not shipping below cost for Amazon. That's a lie. Part of the problem of having a liar in charge of the country. This is something one of the USPS' competitors told Trump. The USPS loses money because the GOP years ago forced it to fund its retirement plan for like 60 years in the future, in advance. They have to fund retirement plans for people who don't even work there yet. No other company has to do this. It costs something like 90% of their profit to do this.

Their deal with Amazon has been highly profitable for them, and is one of the reasons they are doing better now than they were in the past.

Trump is abusing his office and his power to attack a private corporation that he does not like, out of spite and revenge. He does not like Amazon, Jeff Bezos or the Washington's Post's coverage of him. This is an impeachable offense, and he should be impeached for it.

Crocodile tears. Don't worry, it won't pass the house, and even if it does, Trump might actually laugh for the first time ever when he knocks it down.

If by a miracle it gets by the "in the bag" GOP industry shills in the House, I expect Trump will be like: "I am totally signing this Net Neutrality thingy. It's great for the country, and very popular, just like me." His phone rings, its a lobbyist from Comcast. "Wait, Net Neutrality is very bad. Not good. No good, bad, terrible. I am ripping up this piece of paper...oh, it's called a bill? I'm ripping up this bill."

Trump's most likely worried about his and Ivanka's companies that are located in China, so he's going to use his influence and our tax dollars to keep this Chinese company running because he doesn't want retaliation against his companies.

Trump admin is correct on that one. These guys violated our existing sanctions repeatedly and then lied about punishing their execs responsible. If they can't continue business with sanctions in place, maybe they should have thought about that before doing shady shit.

Perhaps true, but what message is this sending to the world? "Don't buy American. We can shut you down on a whim." It's just encouraging other nations to start developing their own hardware and software.

Of course it does. Equifax is not bound by your puny fucking laws! It writes checks to congress critters!

No doubt. It's a shame people aren't more educated on this. This is something that could really ruin your life 1, 5, 50 years from now, and it's 100% Equifax's fault. But don't worry, they'll give you 1 year free credit monitoring. It's like giving someone a small band-aid for having 3 limbs blown off. No action at all from our Congress. No regulation, no oversight.

Working with Trump is not a good use of anyone's time. He's going to do whatever he thinks is best, regardless of what an expert tells him. He thinks he knows more than the experts, yet doesn't know the basics, such as how our government works. The system of checks and balances is "very unfair" he says.

Hell, just listening to him talk is a waste of time. You are either going to get a complete lie or gibberish.

Its beyond freaking ridiculous that someone should go to jail for creating a cheat program for a damn video game!

you leftist sjw's are so freaking BRAIN DEAD for cheering this kind of stuff.


Cheat programs, hacks, piracy cost people real money. It's no different from theft. If there are reports of rampant cheating in a game, I don't buy it, period. That can result in thousands or millions in losses to a developer.

I don't see anything he's done or going to do to be anywhere near a "nightmare." In fact, I see him trying to undo the liberal fuckery.

What's a nightmare are these libtards turning this country (and even the world) into the next Sodom and Gomorrah. If you want to be afraid of someone, let it be someone like Hillary Clinton or anyone like her. Now THERE'S a nightmare because these people are turning millions to the path of eternal judgement.

If you don't see the nightmare, then open your eyes. Scott Pruitt in the EPA, opening up offshore drilling, selling off federal (that's our land, btw) land to the highest bidder, destroying foreign alliances, destabilizing the healthcare markets, destabilizing the stock markets, exploding the deficit for no reason at all with irresponsible tax cuts, wasting billions on useless walls, deploying troops to attack refugees at the border, and basically just eroding our very democracy with his reality show bullshit and shifty antics like obstruction of justice, pardoning criminals and racists. It's going to take decades to fix this mess this incompetent buffoon is creating.

It will be interesting to see if SCOTUS ends up raising taxes on the entire nation now that they once again have a conservative majority after the GOP refused to even hold confirmation hearings for 1 year on Obama's picks. We already have a GOP tax cut that didn't do anything to lower taxes on most of the nation, giving about 90% of the tax cuts to the rich who promptly reinvested it, moved it into offshore accounts or bought back stock instead of raising wages.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but G-Sync is objectively much superior, right?
I see the benefit to both views, but perhaps part of the cost is why it's a better solution.

Were I to buy, I'd likely go G-Sync. But I'd also do a lot of research I haven't done yet, so don't hold me to that. I just seem to recall people here all liked G-Synch much, much more.

Unless something's changed, from the comparisons I've seen, it's only somewhat superior, and definitely nowhere worth $200-$300+ premium superior (which is how much extra a g-sync monitor costs). And I say that as someone with a gtx video card and g-sync monitor. This thing Nvidia doing with vendors is dirty business.

The main problem with autonomous cars is...humans. If we instantly switched to all autonomous cars, it would probably go fairly smoothly, but we are trying to integrate programs that will follow the law with humans who have no interest in following speed limits, stop signs, bus stop rules, red lights, following distance AND are all playing on their phones. I'd say the best autonomous cars right now are far safer than your average human driver (at least American) driver.

I was all set to buy this (price was $17 - no sale indicated), then hours later the price was $25. Apparently the developer messed up something with their release and the $17 price was temporary, and $25 was the real price. They said they were going to fix it, but then later said they weren't going to change it for US and UK. Just really didn't like how they handled it. Think I'll wait for a sale.

Sin or not, I see this law as a massive negative. Making website operators responsible for the speech of their users is one step toward crushing online free speech.

Plus, once again (like the war on drugs and pedophilia), we are willing to punish 99.99% of the population to try and catch/deter a teeny tiny portion of the criminal element. Even if it's only used for those specific circumstances such as sex trafficking now, 5, 10, 20 years from now it will be used to shut down any site for any reason.

There's no way websites can monitor all of the chat, ads, posts unless they are willing to devote massive time and/or money to it.
