I'm impressed this even went so far as to get an appellate court ruling. The fact that Mr. Spriggs invested so much effort to fight the ticket is to be lauded, because almost everyone else simply pays the "low" fine because it's easier than to fight. That's why we get very few court rulings on small traffic violations. It's just not worth it to the defendant, as the best they achieve is to get their fine voided.   In this case, it's a rational reading of the law and...
Yeah, that got rejected in the 60s but thanks for your reactionary views.I assume you also include race and gender in your world view of permissible discrimination?
All the anti-gay crap is no different than the discrimination people faced over their gender and race. People are bigots and disgusting, and time will show them as no different than the racists that were called out in previous times. Society advances, but many people don't. They do, fortunately, eventually die.
 I don't think you understand dates and spans of time. Ya see, the link you posted was the explanation of the SSL exploit as provided by Adam Langley on February 22nd whereas the 10.9.2 update containing a fix for that bug was released on February 25th. Perhaps you can now understand what's going on.
What "special interest group"? Homosexuals? It's not a club where you sign up.Are races "special interest groups? How about elderly people? Women?
Everything you said was an argument supporting discrimination based on race. Everything.
 Naw. To paraphrase Steve Jobs from his Stanford commencement speech, death is what solves this problem. Every generation, more of his ilk die and they aren't replaced fast enough to make it sustainable (unless they try to force it on people, which is not unprecedented). 
Whenever I read an article about discrimination, I just replace the group being discriminated against with the words relating to race. It really helps dispel the "no one would dare to suggest it as a valid reason to discriminate against a black person, but here it's ok." The beauty of using racial discrimination as a check is that racial discrimination is so utterly socially unacceptable now (despite that individuals and groups still promote it) that it takes out the time...
 You're on the wrong forum if you own APPL stock. The fundamental issue is that AAPL's valuation is already artificially low. When you remove cash, it's P/E is less than 8. For sure, a company's actual value versus the stockmarket's valuation is not going to match up because most stock traders are nothing more than gamblers. Over the next 10 years, AAPL will continue to increase in actual value. Whether the stock price reflects that is, as always, a guess.
Thanks, Apple.
