Re: Should the government require safety messages on products and advertising?

Jesus Christ, can you understand plain American English? Government warnings on cigarette packages and advertising are not warnings at all, but merely represent the government trying to discourage smoking, which it has absolutely no authority to do under the U.S. Constitution. Can't you get that th...

Re: Should the government require safety messages on products and advertising?

Please, I'm talking about the government forcing manufacturers to put warnings on the advertising of products that are well-known to be harmful, like cigarettes. There is absolutely no reason for the government to be doing this, absolutely none, and only represents a building-block of government ty...

Re: Should the government require safety messages on products and advertising?

From an economic standpoint, a transaction is efficient if the private costs and benefits associated with a transaction equal the social costs and benefits associated with the same transaction. In the case of an information asymmetry, where a seller knows far more about the dangers of a product tha...

Are we still talking about my avatar?
I think Fish Pie's thoughts have moved on from avatars, in a direction where asking him to elaborate on them may well have unsavoury consequences. I expect he'll blame it on his sage.
Is there a difference between a sage and "Divine Guidance"?

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

Jesus Christ, Gary, it may be rude and inconsiderate, but you know damn well I am speaking the honest-to-God truth! Why is it that just yesterday President Trump had to blast all the other NATO countries for not paying their fair share of defense? Why should America have to carry the whole fucking ...

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

Fair enough, I guess. But just for the record I think it would be more accurate to say that " some Americans are the rudest people on the planet". "Yanks" is sort of a rude way to refer to Americans and not all Americans are ruder than everyone else on the planet. I think you are setting yourself u...

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

As a "yank" I personally don't expect anyone to be "impressed" by me being open about being from the US. (In fact I've become pretty accustomed to getting flak for it on forums comprised of people from many nationalities like this one.) Honestly, I'm open about it because it just doesn't occur to m...

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

Isn't that funny, since MY country is consistently at the top of the list in practically every positive category you can think of (including 'freedom') with even the city I live in just being named the best in the world. Isn't it ironic that I probably have more right than anyone to say that I live...

'Jealous' of what? I don't know why retarded people have to come on this site. Why don't you write on the Alex Jones page or something? You act like you have a hard-on for the US since you talk about my great country so much. Telling me what to do will be ignored since I have freedom in this countr...

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

OMG. Are you really that thick? How the fuck do drones know who they are bombing? And half the time they are operated by giggling yank psychopaths who think they are playing video games. Btw, how does a drone tell a 'terrorist' from a regular human being? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rXPrfnU3G0...

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

Also it's humans who decide who are terrorists and who aren't, not the technology at this stage.

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

If they bumped off every potential terrorist before they had solid reason to think an act of terror was imminent I think they would end up with an embarrassingly large number of bodies to explain away. The police may have had this man on their radar but he was just one of, probably, thousands. You ...

You're overlooking technology. Drones can do the job.

I think not Harbal. Here's a four-year old article (and the technology has advanced since then):
