  1. End of Net Neutrality

    To a certain extent that is already being done...twitter/facebook/google. These sites are promoting/moderating content and user accounts based on specific content being requested or posted. Why are these companies allowed to filter what consumers are seeing? Loss of NN will definitely promote this if ISPs charge more if you want CNN or Fox News based on how the company's political views are.
  2. End of Net Neutrality

    What work would you like me to show? You can read my last reply as to how I experienced some of the issues that NN has helped address. Thanks for your contribution to the topic.
  3. End of Net Neutrality

    I never said either way if I supported NN or not. I am trying to 'member what i paid for my current tier of Internet in 2014 and I don't think it was much different. I had Comcast back when they were throttling torrent traffic. Which is really a misnomer, they'd tank your entire download speed while torrent traffic was active. I agree with you that the Internet is a different bigger beast than in 2014. As someone who works for a company that relies on some of these ISPs to supply fast/reliable/cost effective internet connectivity, as well as the content providers to generate accurate search content for clients and to our/their customers I support an open Internet. Though the concept of open internet (separate topic) in my mind is hard to explain accurately when content is moderated/promoted by apps/search engines/etc based on what type of content is being requested (not talking about any illegal stuff). So short answer is I would prefer to keep the NN rules in place.

    Like they were doing pre-NN internet 2014?
  5. Las Vegas mass shooting

    https://www.cga.ct.gov/2013/rpt/2013-R-0039.htm Federal Law The 1994 federal Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which amended the 1968 Gun Control Act, made it illegal to transfer or possess “large capacity ammunition feeding devices” not lawfully possessed on or before the law's enactment. But the law permitted the sale of magazines manufactured before the ban (formerly codified at 18 USC § 922(w)(1) and (2)). (The act also banned the manufacture, transfer, and possession of semi-automatic assault weapons.) The act defined “large capacity ammunition feeding device” as “a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device . . . that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition.” It exempted attached tubular devices designed to accept and capable of operating only with .22 caliber rim fire (18 USC § 921(a)(31(A) &(B)). The act included a sunset clause, under which the ban expired after 10 years, on September 13, 2004. Congress allowed the law to expire, and consequently, formerly banned high capacity ammunition magazines (and assault weapons) are now legal unless banned by state or local governments. ***Nevada has no such law on the books.
  6. Las Vegas mass shooting

    For ~$400 you can turn your semi-auto rifle into a pretty much full auto by using a bump stock/slide fire kit...which are legal (loopholed).
  7. Last to post wins

    Don't call it a comeback....
  8. Trump Foreign Policy

    Again, I'm not sure where you are seeing people with this attitude. Maybe I'm just not looking at the same things. You're just over reading into my post. I didn't say anyone had an attitude. I said dropping a bomb has nothing to do with dick size. Earlier you replied to a post that specifically said the US is swinging its big D. The military is our (USA) dick when it comes to how we are seen by the rest of the world. It's true..science.
  9. Trump Foreign Policy

    BTW...Russia developed "The Father Of All Bombs" and is supposedly 4 times as powerful. So I am guessing the US is now developing the Mother In-Law Of All Bombs which will out pace that.
  10. Trump Foreign Policy

    Thermobaric bombs are the most effective against cave/tunnel systems...and MOAB is the biggest thermobaric bomb we got. The US Military has used smaller laser guided 2000lb thermobaric weapons against caves/tunnels in this region before (in 2002). Not sure why it hasn't been used before. Edit for link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermobaric_weapon
  11. Trump Foreign Policy

    This bomb was used on the tunnel systems ISIS is using in that area. I think this type of bomb is the most effective we have for cave/tunnels. Foreign policy wise I think this shows that we aren't afraid to use weapons like this to get the job done. It's been around since 2003.... It should also send hopefully send Afghanistan a message that we will do what it takes to win this war against ISIS/Taliban and for them to stop supporting..."allegedly"...these groups.
  12. Trump Foreign Policy

    Not directed at you, to be clear. The reaction to this and the fawning media coverage is what I worry about. I mean, I fall for a lot of military glorification stuff, personally, but this isn't even hella cool tech enables U.S. to launch devastating surgical strikes. It's "we dropped a dumb bomb, but a really big one because it's 10 times heavier than our normal dumb bombs." We have always had and demonstrated the ability to bomb at will. Amping up the tonnage on a (probably) one-off demonstration is clearly pulling out the ruler. The only argument to be had is whether there was value in doing so. Some people think so. I disagree strongly. It's GPS guided...so technically not a "dumb bomb".
  13. Trump Foreign Policy

    One square mile of destruction seems like a dick swing to me. And the message it sends is pretty clear.
