  1. Re: Mind Trapped by: Major News outlets are now propaganda agents

    It wasn't intended as an insult. I really do think you have been snowed by a narative that is pushed by the right wing. One that says you can't trust anything you hear but from their own media...
  2. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    Well, the hacking broke laws, but not the emails. The party maintained they were neutral, but the emails showed that was not true. The real significance of them is they greatly angered some of...
  3. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    I think you have things a bit confused. Hillary's email server was never hacked (that we know of). The emails you are thinking of were from the DNC (democratic national committee) email servers ...

    Should we care if the Russian Government was blackmailing Trump? Should we care if the Russians were using spycraft to control US foreign policy? Should we care if Russians are trying to hack US...

    Re: 3-D Printing Guns

    I wanted to make it clear that violence is not limited to big cities, and that in fact, many of the rural areas are as or more violent than even the highest crime cities are. It is a common...

    Have you actually read the Steele Dossier? Pretty much everything alleged in there is espianage of one kind or another. I've read most of it, what they are talking about in there is generally...

    I think actually, you have been brainwashed by a concerted effort by alternative media sources that make money by discrediting more reputable organizations.

    There are plenty of useful and valid...

    Re: 3-D Printing Guns

    Some of America's rural areas are very violent and crime-prone. And some of the urban areas are very low crime areas. There are many rural counties that have a much much higher murder rate than...

    Re: 3-D Printing Guns

    Sort of. I think we can still inculcate a society that is peaceful enough that guns just aren't something people need ans so they won't generally have them.

    I'd love to live in a society where the...

    Re: 3-D Printing Guns

    I think that this is one of those things where they are coming at it from the wrong angle.

    Plans for making guns should not be illegal, they are nearly impossible to effectively control.
