Obama needs a 'Plan B' on guns - 2 views

  •  
    Obama may not have votes for gun legislation to pass
  • ...2 more comments...
  •  
    i think that obama should have a plan b when it comes to guns because there is always stories about how someone gets killed when they didnt do anything wrong
  •  
    i think there should be laws but you should have to take classes to even get a gun not just be able to go in and with a simple backround and just get one
  •  
    I believe gun makers are just doing what will get them the most amount of profit, since there are no laws requiring them to make weapons safer, easier to match, or track they see no point in helping, since it would cost more money to fulfill these requests.

    The reason it failed is because he is not using common sense, you cant just expect someone to do something you tell them too. No they need to think about the fact and solve the issue, like school shootings and gangs in the cities thinking they can run the place, because they are cool no. You need to use mind and use it wisely and if that doesn't work than i would suggest using brute force like getting the people that are paid to solve these problems like going in to the main source of violence which would be the gang shootings and take them into custody and put them behind bars for a long time which might be the only solution he has to offer who knows.

    For three decades, the story of gun control was one of notorious crimes and laws passed in response, beginning with the federal law that followed the assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968.

Google's Driverless Cars Permitted by New California Law- Bloomberg - 3 views

  •  
    That's really cool! I would like to ride in one of these! Although I probably won't be able to for quite some time.
  • ...2 more comments...
  •  
    that sounds cool but what would happen if the car malfunctioned and the driver wasnt able to gain control?
  •  
    it would be a good idea but will take huge amounts of time to make.
  •  
    Personally, I would not want one, for it to run on detailed maps, and be able to override and read every factor of driving, it would require the internet. Assuming it is using google maps, what if it cannot connect to the internet? That's dangerous. To add, like ever machine, there is going to be an error, and this will probably raise accident rates.
  •  
    . . . Google in general honestly kind of scares me. Like, yeah, the Chromes and Docs and stuff are beneficial for school things, but they don't have to try to take over the world. (And Payton brought up a good point with the car needing to be connected to the internet to work.) Also, has anyone heard about how Google asks you for your real name instead of allowing you to use a screen name (or something like that)? I remember, I think it was two days ago, that I was going to post a comment on a YouTube video that I had watched with my YouTube account that I've had since 2007, and then Google was all like, "Oh hey want to show your real name instead of your screen name?" and I was like, "Heck no." And there have been times where they purposely log me out of my Google account, and then when I sign back in, they ask for my cell phone number and I click skip because I'm not giving my number to Google. It's for some stupid information loss thing or whatever. But who knows if they're actually protecting your personal information and your privacy?

Bill C-309 | openparliament.ca - 18 views

  •  
    OK so it is not being proposed in the USA, but this bill recently introduced in Canada is pretty interesting. Think about the people in our country who protest, but don't want their identity to be shown. Would you support this bill or not?

    link seems broken... try this http://openparliament.ca/bills/41-1/C-309/
  •  
    I think its a good law, people should be able to know who you are. If you really wanna protest, you shouldn't care.
  •  
    I believe that if you truly believe in the cause, then you should have to face the consequences, even if that means losing your job or your reputation and status.
  •  
    This bill makes sense. Public safety is at the forefront of this bill, if a protest gets violent or other harmful/unlawful acts occur the persons the are held responsible will be able to be identified. But looking at it from the other side, people might want to conceal their identity at protests, or the masks are part of their protest(example Anonymous). If this bill passes people will be made, if it doesn't pass other people will be mad. Who is the Canadian government ok will making mad?
  •  
    This bill should be passed because if you're risking yourself by already being there, you should have to show your face. Also, if the situation ever turned violent, that person wouldn't get away with it because their face wasn't exposed so they could be identified.
  •  
    I think that this bill should be passed because the police should have the right to identify anyone who is protesting. If you want to protest, protecting your identity shouldn't be a major concern because you would want people to know who you are, and what you are speaking out against.
  •  
    I think if you are going to protest, you are there for a reason, that you strongly believe in, so you should not want to hide who you really are
  •  
    It should be considered that this is a trade for security by means of liberty. Sacrificing freedom for a small degree of protection. If this bill passes, it could easily snowball to other things (this may be a bit of a reach) such as controlling what you can wear altogether just so that you can be identified at all times just in case you might be possibly considering intending to commit a crime.
  •  
    As said in earlier comments, I think that if you want to protest IN PUBLIC then the public has the right to know who you are. If you want you can protest in your house and no one needs to know who you are. But out side of you cant hide from the public if your are going to stand outside with a big sign and yell out things in front of people.
  •  
    I think this should be a bill that becomes a law.
  •  
    I see it as your there or your protesting for a reason so why hide it. If your protesting you believe something is ether wrong or right so why hide your believes. If you don't want to be seen or noticed here's an easy answer don't go!
  •  
    I think that you should be able to wear a mask, because if you're protesting something that you believe in, or don't believe in, than it is a personal matter and you should be able to conceal your identity from the public.
  •  
    I think it might be better if you have to register to be part of a protest but to have the list sealed unless things get violent
  •  
    I think that they should show there faces. Its there choice to go, so then show yourself, dont hide.

Iowa Lawmakers Now Seek To Ban Traffic Cameras - 8 views

  •  
    Has there been any real results from installing the traffic cameras? I know that the ones by my house don't always work so it just seems like a waste of resources there. They have probably helped reduce the amount of people that step on it when the light turns yellow but does that really solve any problems? or just teach us to rive faster in order to avoid the red lights?

    I saw an article this summer which argues they cause more rear end collisions when drivers slam on the brakes to avoid a ticket. Interesting read on both sides of the issue from ABC news. http://goo.gl/JKwmO
  •  
    I believe that traffic cameras cause many people to become fearful of red light intersections. Because of their fear, they sometimes don't pay as much attention to their own surrounding
  •  
    i think they should get rid of the traffic cameras. ive almost hit someone bc they slammed on the brakes unexpectedly. they can be hazardous
  •  
    I agree with Zac And Alexis. I hate it when its counting down, and you have to determine if you want to stop or speed up. Its very stressful!
  •  
    I think they should keep them. There good for safety and people can be more aware because they know they would get a ticket if not.
  •  
    I think they should get rid of them, people are more scared to get a ticket than to slam on their breaks surprising the car behind them, causing a fender bender accident.
  •  
    I agree with the ban. Sure, people run less red lights, but they have caused stoplights to be more of a danger. People start speeding more to make the light to not get a ticket or brake really hard and cause accidents.

MInecraft goes dark to protest SOPA - 3 views

  •  
    With Minecraft just passing 20 million users, this will bring large attention to SOPA. Gamers who would otherwise not care about the bill will now notice that their favorite sandbox game is offline and it will spark interest in the gaming community as a whole.
  •  
    It doesn't really matter, it's a matter of time before they create another one.

    My sister and I play this game all the time! It's gonna be weird shutting it down for a day.

    i think that this would be an extremely effective option and would pose a giant problem if these websites shut down, even for a day especially if it was google.
  •  
    hahahahahahahahahaha! i wonder how the government will react to this protest. Are they going to start arresting all of the employees of these componies. this will be interesting.

The War on marijuana and who's winning - 10 views

  •  
    This would for sure help our debt if they did end up legalizing it and taxing it!
  • ...3 more comments...
  •  
    Also if it was legal the government could regulate it, like they do alcohol. It'd make marijuana a lot safer.
  •  
    At the moment we are being told that we are winning the war by the gov't. But the truth is hiding behind the government. They wont tell us the truth because it would show a weakness. We are losing.
  •  
    how is cannabis not safe? more people die from alcohol related incidents a year than weed for sure, and weed cant poison people. so i vote yes! legalize it.
  •  
    I am actually surprised that the govt hasn't legalized it yet because the govt loves money and marijuana sales makes on average 1.5 billion dollars a year so in about 10 years (maybe) the USA could actually not be in debt.
  •  
    i dont see why marijuana is not legal anymore its actually funny how our first president grew marijuana as a cash crop
