There's really no reason to do this unless someone is incredibly impatient and not that good with money. $32.50 a month, but you don't actually own the phone...that's what it sounds like to me. I'll take the old way. I'll buy the phone with a two year commitment for $200. In two years, I'll get a new one...getting around $150 or more for my old phone via private sale. After the first phone, it's really only $50 to get a new phone, plus their stupid upgrade fee. What...
  And from the Left?  Silence.  Obamacare is a disaster through and through.  It's worse than socialized medicine.  It combines the worst of the private and public systems.  
  It is amazing that the pseudo-religion of "climate change" still has followers at this point.  The entire concept is absurdly stupid.  The climate is constantly fluctuating.  Short-term temperature records are practically useless, as the Earth's climate has changed dramatically over thousands, hundreds of thousands, and millions of years.  Even the above graph (taken from none other than Think Progress) shows a maximum change of about .8 degrees centigrade since 1891...
  Ridiculous.  And I'd like a link on the Cheney claim, please.          Of course he was.          Prove it.          and the only material which made it to the final report was obtained using single-sourced material extracted by torturing prisoners. Zelikow even “buried” the option of a criminal referral by the Commission to the Justice Department for a perjury investigation. It became a "useless circus" because the US authorities did not...
  We don't disagree there.  In my opinion it's the storing of information that is the real problem.  Real-time electronic monitoring for keywords and/locales with warrants needed for further scrutiny is fine with me (well...that's a poor choice of words.  Let's just say I accept that it exists and probably has to in our modern society).     I'm not claiming terrorists fail to make plans to avoid detection.  But suggesting they don't use cell phones or the...
Haven't used a real desktop for years and have event gotten away from using my Macbook Pro since iPads have become ubiquitous. That said, this thing makes me drool.
  Certainly seems like a logical decision to me.  In fact, the "other" conclusion would have been frightening and bizarre.  
  What qualifies you to judge what "hate" is, and whether or not it's "warranted?"         That's just delusional.  Yes, you will find conservative evangelicals who wish to inject their specific beliefs into legislation.  But they are hardly some kind of mortal threat to the nation.  I'm fully aware this doesn't matter to you though, because you've demonstrated your incredible intolerance for anyone who has views differing from yours.  It's the existence of conservative...
  Ah, and the naked partisanship continues.  Berg, you do realize that opinions on the NSA programs vary widely across the ideological spectrum?  There have indeed been some strange bedfellows made over this, with people like Micheal Moore and Rush Limbaugh agreeing on issues.    And as for background checks, you know full well that it's not "background checks" that many oppose.  It's creating a registry.  I mean, why would we worry about the government having all that...
  I didn't mean to imply anything about separate goals and interests.  I'm simply saying he should have at least tried to go through channels.  He could have reported his concerns to his superiors at the contractor, or to the NSA directly, or to Congress and/or to attorneys who deal with whistle blowing.  From what I've seen and read, there are doubts about his claims of "having authority" (his words) to tap/monitor "anyone," or even a capability to do so.   Because he's...
