“Voter ID laws - it's as if Scotland was to pass a law demanding all Loch Ness monsters to become members of 'The Guild of Registered Tourist Guides and Hoteliers', since these creatures are evidently working in the tourist industry and pay no dues. Sure, you will say they don't exist, but what if they do? Better be safe than sorry.”

“No propaganda here, move along.

It's funny how Americans see their presidents as superheroes and not as an element of authority which needs to be checked at all times.”

AmericanPatriot66 on Oct 27, 2013 at 07:06:35

“Nothing in this article suggests the President as being anything other than a simple human being sharing in the misery of his fellow citizens.

He was just there displaying the remorse that all Americans -- except for the gun crazed among us -- have during such a crisis.

He was there representing the pain that we feel when something like this happens. That's all.”

“why is this top news?”

Hegemoneyhoney on Oct 27, 2013 at 06:07:30

“Why are you asking? Do you post this question after every article you want to draw attention to yourself pointlessly about?

It's "top news" because it's the World Series and a very unusual event decided the final score. If you don't like the subject, then why did you stop by the article ON this subject? Perhaps you find Kardashians more to your interest.”

“Obama and W have nothing to do with this - the core of the surveillance culture is actually quite simple - you have technology with which you can control society. There is not a government in the world that would not take advantage of this - the difference is only in how they formulate the 'reasoning' behind spying and the level to which the voters will buy that reasoning: fortunately the US government is quite clumsy in the PR department - if they had put out a statement saying 'we will spy on all of your electronic devices, because we wish to root out the spread of child pornography' - majority of the population would support that. The 'reasoning' behind 'securing' every inch of London with CCTV cameras (and thus making London the most surveilled city in the world) was, that this would have a huge impact on decreasing crime - well it didn't, but the majority of population had nothing against it. In fact, if you said anything about 'right to privacy' or if you mentioned the word 'Orwell', the other side simply threw at you a 'non defensible argument': so you support terrorists and criminals?

You have to be a colossal fool if you think the government will not take advantage of today's technology. It is simply a new standard, get used to it.”

“UN is a scam - they are focusing on 'robo warfare', yet they didn't prevent a single genocide in the last 20 years (Bosnia, Rwanda, Darfur, Congo etc). All it took to stop the war in Bosnia was a couple of F 14 jets dropping a couple of bombs on Serbia - and 100.000 people had to die in order for NATO to intervene (NATO not the UN). They didn't even bother with Rwanda or any other African countries (those people are not considered human by our standards) And look at Syria - West is giving weapons to the rebels, Russia and China are giving weapons to Assad - and 99 percent of innocent Syrians are caught in between. This is a disgrace for humanity. But please, carry on with the discussion on 'robo warfare' and 'pink unicorn cannon'”

“Orwell wrote a great essay about political speech. In it he wrote that certain words lose their meaning overtime due to politicians - he quoted Nazism (which doesn't represent National Socialism anymore, but it represents evil), democracy (it doesn't mean a political system, but it is a synonym for 'good') etc.

Well Obama just invented a new meaning for the word imminent threat: Awlaki was eating lunch when he was killed. What does 'imminent' mean then?”

“I don't buy this, Mayer is smart, why in the world would buying tumblr be a smart move? Hasn't it already been established that 99 percent of internet giants are in fact hugely overrated? Facebook's IPO was a fail, Myspace failed, digg has virtually disappeared.

And the story is always the same: some wunderkind from Harvard starts a website that becomes a huge hit over night, it is then sold for gazillion dollars and flops the next day. And while Murdoch's acquire of Myspace was understandable at the time, this doesn't seem one bit logical. As far as I can see there's either something behind the curtain that the public doesn't know about, or we have ourselves a nice example of God complex on Mayers behalf.”

“Quote from Orwell's 1984:

"The war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects, and the object of the war is not to make or prevent conquests of territory, but to keep the structure of society intact. The very word "war," therefore, has become misleading. It would probably be accurate to say that by becoming continuous war has ceased to exist."”
