The Assumption is that YOU are to Blamehttp://www.yorkregion.com/news-story/2510909-cruiser-cams-prove-you-re-guilty/The Assumption is that YOU are to Blame2 months ago in Personal More Like This
This story, in the Georgina Advocate / Era Banner had two headlines.
'CRUISER CAMS PROVE YOU'RE GUILTY', AND 'CRUISER CAMS CAN PROVE YOUR GUILT'
Both headlines lead me to believe that Metroland Media, the company that publishes the local newspaper, assumed it'll be the public who will be the only ones caught breaking laws by the new video cameras being installed in police cruisers.
Here is my response to the article as first published, detailing what's WRONG about that assumption.
Cruiser cams can not only prove guilt, they can prove innocence. Cameras can not only act as another set of eyes when it becomes an officer's word against that of a driver, but also when it's a citizen's word against a lawbreaking cop.
Evidence gathered from these cameras could (or, at least, SHOULD) be used against police who break the law they've sworn to uphold. A cruiser cam would have been helpful in my case, when "law" office

Want to Topple the Government?This is for all of you that want to overthrow the US government and who think the best way to go about this is to launch an attack on buildings, infrastructure or targeted assassinations. In particular, I want to address people who think the time for these activities is right now. The intention of this is to illustrate why this is a bad idea and to propose an alternate path.Want to Topple the Government?3 months ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, I know how you guys feel. You see your government taking away your rights one at a time, you see the jaws of the police state closing down around you, and you see them using your hard-earned tax dollars to line the pockets of the wealthiest scumbags on the planet. It enrages you. The line isn't about to be crossed, it was crossed a long time ago.
I understand where you're coming from when you say "We can't wait for them to come smashing down our doors and dragging us off in the night. We have to do something, we have to do something now!" You feel a sense of urgency.
That sense of urgency is valid. Yo

Shives feels that Eisenhower actually did a disservice by coining the term "military-industrial complex" in his speech "because fighting against the cost and the influence of [it] might be easier today if we still called it by its old name: war profiteering."

There is no other reason needed to dismiss and despise the anti-vax kooks other than the fact that their movement is based on refuted pseudoscience cooked up by professional quack Andrew "Shockingly-Effed Up, Absolutely Wrong, Possibly Criminal" Wakefield.

Please stop using the term 'blaze of glory' to describe the possible murderous, suicidal intentions and tendencies of a criminal.
There is nothing glorious about suicide.
There is nothing glorious about murdering children, adults or cops.
There is nothing glorious about glorifying a murderer either.
Shame on you. #JournalismFAIL

Man is arrested for hentai comics? What the FUCK?!Hey this is Duke here, I know this is sudden and unexpected to overlap my important personal news with a secondary journal but I just saw this story on facebook ( http://www.dailydot.com/news/incest-comics-obscenity-sentenced/ ) and I have some really enfuriating, emotionally charged words to say about this. First of all I have to say no matter what is depicted in the comic it is STILL A COMIC. It is not actually being done in real life. Secondly - why is it that other things just as illegal in story comics such as murder and violence, are perfectly okay to portray , but yet sexual acts in stories, movies and art is so much more offensive? What is the bigger evil here? Killing or consenting sex in a FICTITIOUS story? Finally, this is an absolute, complete and total violation and infringement on freedom of speech as an artist. The guy is married for one - meaning he has sex with his WIFE and not with technocolored children much less kids in real life. I'm an artist and I will draw whatMan is arrested for hentai comics?

Top 11 favorite statist argumentsNew and revised! Check 'em out!Top 11 favorite statist arguments1 year ago in Personal More Like This
11. Love it or leave it
Statists love to support their pet government by arguing that if you don't like it, you're free to leave whenever you want...of course ignoring the fact that you need the government's permission to leave and thus they can stop you if they so desire.
But what's really downright evil about this argument is how it's effectively blaming the victim. If a woman complains about how her husband beats her and blows all their money on booze, what would you think of someone who replied by saying it's her fault for staying with him?
It really takes a special kind of asshole to resort to a low blow argument like this and shame on anyone who ever has.
10. Taxation is not theft
When the mafia demands 10% of your income or else, it's racketeering. When the government demands 40% of your income or else, it's taxation and somehow is totally different. And my only question is HOW?!
"But Hawkeye!" they cry

It really saddens me that there is this semblance of freedom of speech and when someone says something that opposes the majority, it gets immediately criticized as close-minded and stamped out.
I cannot talk, for my thoughts will ruin me. I would rather stay silent.

SHOCKER: Krugman Was Wrong About The Internet!It's a well-documented fact that Paul Krugman is wrong about everything. While more reputable economists were warning of the oncoming recession, Krugman suggested that a housing bubble should replace the NASDAQ bubble.SHOCKER: Krugman Was Wrong About The Internet!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
So should it be any surprise that Krugman was blatantly wrong about the internet?* The growth of the Internet will slow drastically, as the flaw in "Metcalfe's law"–which states that the number of potential connections in a network is proportional to the square of the number of participants–becomes apparent: most people have nothing to say to each other! By 2005 or so, it will become clear that the Internet's impact on the economy has been no greater than the fax machine's.
