 I didn't claim I know everything.  I've just seen this movie before.     I've concluded I have just enough energy and motivation to get into this with you.  Just enough.   I am not defending the use of the compounds you've referenced.   However, they are not "chemical weapons" per se (especially the former). They are not necessarily intended to kill, though both do some nasty things if humans are exposed.   Contrast this with mustard gas, VX, botulinum toxin, etc.  They...
 When you're here as long as I've been, you sort of chuckle when you see a list of US military actions presented like that. Do you think that somehow supports your ridiculous claim about the US running around "destroying" countries? Your statements about the US being a "rogue state" are equally predictable and laughable. They frankly bore me. I've seen these words written time and time again by several posters over the years. Agent Orange. Jesus.
Wow...if this doesn't illustrate how screwed up Blackberry is, I don't know what does. I understand it's a contract. But let me ask...what is the point of taking this to court? The guy doesn't want to work there anymore. What are you accomplishing by holding him? Read their statement. It sounds like it's a case of "Let's show him who has the biggest balls!" What financial or work-product incentive could there possibly be? It's a little different in my field. One...
 Selfishness is, in fact, the problem.  Just not the kind you're thinking of.  And who is willing to "destroy" other countries?  Sounds like you're thinking of Russia to me.    That word you're using...I don't think you know what it means.  
 Cheney was never accused of "corruption" by anyone credible.  He had no stake in Halliburton at the time.  And Halliburton was one of the few companies in the world that could do what we needed in terms of reconstruction.     My posts?  Which ones out of the 15,000 or so?  I've been posting and debating here since January of 2000.   Somehow I don't think I'll be offended by you being "puzzled."     Yes, and the tone is set from the top.  Granted, it's not just Obama.  He...
Non-story. Just a coincidence. Of course, I love watching the "greatest paper in the world" look like fools.
 Hey bud.  Long time.  Anyway, what's wrong, you ask?  I think a lot of it comes from a lack of leadership.  Specifically, whether one agrees or disagrees with the President on the issues, there's no question that he's not exactly the best spokesperson for America.   Part of this is his view that America is too powerful and too influential.  He views us an empire that needs to be knocked down a few pegs.  He almost never espouses the greatness of America.  He doesn't make...
Some good comments here. It's clear Apple is doing what all corporations do, and all smart people do: minimize tax liability. I mean, is anyone honestly shocked or even mildly disappointed here? Apple's responsibility is to its SHAREHOLDERS. Paying more tax is not in the interest of its shareholders, whereas paying less tax (as long as its legal) definitely IS. As macaholic_1948 said...change the law if you don't like it.
Cool feature, but misleading headline.  "Snoop?"  Total sensationalism designed to drive traffic.  It's voicemail call screening.  That's all.  
 That's a ridiculous and needless comment.  I didn't support the bill for several reasons.  However, it was not an "anti-gay" bill, nor does this veto suddenly prevent discrimination.  It is already legal under AZ law to discriminate against gays.  That is simply a fact.  The intent of this bill was to give businesses added protection from being compelled to violate their religious beliefs (as has happened in CA and NM).  Having said that, it was redundant and created...
