The double-edged sword

Privacy and personal freedoms are essential entitlements... for law abiding, non-sociopathic citizens.

-- WIESBADEN, Germany -- German police are unable to decipher the encryption used in the Internet telephone software Skype to monitor calls by suspected criminals and terrorists, Germany's top police officer said on Thursday.
Let's get real, folks... you really wanna give Osama and company a free (in more ways than one) ride?

What's the solution here?

C'mon... let's have another rumble.

Are you talking about the 'rumble' you got into with stooge? I hope not, because you lost that one. Your best response was "I gave away my freedom and nothing happened to me". I'm sure you can see how stupid that sounds.

You also postured around with a puffed out chest, dropping ad hominems left and right, in a desperate attempt to appear either witty, tough, or both. You failed on both accounts.

What will your next great move be? Are you going to lie down and let him stomp on your head, while you exclaim to the crowd that you've got him right where you want him?

"anon postulates... Your best response was "I gave away my freedom"

that's your premise?

that i, "gave away my freedom"? oh, no... how will i ever get it back?

i don't what's less intellectually rigourous here... that gem... or your professional wrestling" analogy.

ad hominem, indeed.

you could try speaking to the topic... but, nah... i guess that's too much of a strain.

Ooo good one. You caught me using the wrong word. Now replace 'freedom' with 'privacy', and just ignore that your very own writeup uses personal freedom and privacy interchangeably.

BTW, I don't care enough about the topic. I just wanted to comment about your presumed 'victory'.

"anon says... I just wanted to comment about your presumed 'victory'."

funny... you're the only one using words like "victory" and phrases like "stomp on your head".

too much hulk hogan, my friend... you should get out more.

HAAA haaa! That's rich.

I'm not sure what wrestling has to do with anything. It sounds like you're trying to bait me into something, but I think wrestling is lame and stupid. I feel the same way about aging ideological keyboard warriors that act like partisan hard-asses on message boards because the outside world scares them so. Your blog is very obviously smeared with references to how much of a tough guy you are - you know, tough on crime, pro-death penalty, pro-war, etc.

Bragging about a concealed weapons permit while discussing the merits of the death penalty or bombing the brownies doesn't make you tough, or a hard-ass. In fact, carrying a gun makes you the exact opposite. It means you can't handle yourself. Supporting the death penalty means that your idea of justice is limited to retribution or vengeance.

It's funny that you honestly believe you don't come across as a hard-ass. What were you going for? Contemplative? Reasonable? Intellectual?

"anon really gets agitated... It's funny that you honestly believe you don't come across as a hard-ass. What were you going for? Contemplative? Reasonable? Intellectual?"

hmm... i guess i'd have to say... matter of fact.

i mean... i'm not the one making all sorts of screechy suppositions about how "tough", or how much of a "hard-ass" anyone is.

maybe you should stand up and take a few deep, healing breaths... i wouldn't want you to stroke out on my account.

oh, wait a minute... this is all about "victory", right?

well, you go girl.

It doesn't take much to entice Stag out of the "bunker", just drop the following key words: joo, merkan, Rove; you magnificent bastard, Bush, Harper; the greatest President/PM ever and before you can say Balbull...waahlaa! Stag appears...mind you after the spanking he received here I'm guessing he's still curled up in the dank/fetid bunker licking his twat.
