Accountability? Pshaw!

by wfgodbold

Apparently we are going to hold Iran’s leadership accountable for the recently discovered terror plot to assassinate ambassadors etc.

I await Mexican president Felipe Calderon’s statement announcing that the US’s leadership will be held accountable for the Fast and Furious debacle.


Quote of the Indeterminate Time Interval – paul

Thingiverse has a big discussion going on about whether they should allow weapon designs to be posted. Commenters have come down on both sides of the issue, with some suggesting an age- or location-based filter.

And then along comes commenter paul, who says

My sense is that the weapon designs are there not so much for printing (they’re way huge for ordinary machines and wouldn’t work in common media) or even study but as political statements. So I don’t really have a problem with a decision to restrict them.

Apparently paul is just fine with restricting speech he doesn’t like.

Unfortunately for him, homemade weapons are actually not that hard to make.

You can’t uninvent the gun.
