The internet has destroyed going to concerts in my opinion. You used to have to stand in line to get tickets or at least wait on hold with Ticketmaster. Now, with the internet, brokers and other a-holes, who don't even care about the band, have computer programs they can use to buy all the tickets and sell them back to the real fans at a mark up. It's disgusting. At least in the old days, people who wanted to do that, had to stand in freaking line or pay somebody to do it for them. The internet has made everything way too easy and convenient, and it is making the current generation Z (are they called Generation Z?) soft, coddled, lazy, and pathetic.

Obviously, one of the bad side effects of the internet is anonymity. The vile and just plain dumb things that people, myself included I guess, write in comments sections such as this, rarely provide any actual social value. Anonymously telling the world who you want to bang and why you like hummus is a pretty huge waste of time right? The internet has led to people believing that anything they say is worth being said. And don't even get me started on Twitter. Like anybody needs to know when some D list celebrity is eating a burger. Now "legitimate" news outlets will report on what people tweet. It's the tail wagging the dog. For real.

That is a strawman. Has anyone ever said that? Nope. Content owners have legitimate rights and concerns here, and I don't think any serious person is denying that. However, giving MPAA and RIAA blanket authority (to own congress via campaign contributions) to shut down websites and censor search results, shut down ad revenues, without a court order, just based on their say-so would be a tremendous blow to internet freedom. They already do this with DMCA takedowns, and there's absolutely no reason to believe BV couldn't become a target, even under existing law.

Ron Pauls presidency would certainly not spell "global disaster".
It would only spell "disaster" for this new world order that is crushing the middle class and trying to turn the populous into poor sheep and super elites whom will control them.
End The Fed! Stop the Military-Industrial Complex! End the Drug war! Repeal the patriot act! Ron Paul 2012!

Why are people discussing Ron Paul? He has about as much chance as Ross Perot.

You smell of loser, 3:14. It's obvious, no matter how desperately you try to project it on me.

Sorry 2:41 / 3:37 - I am pretty happy in my life, and most definitely comfortable within my own skin. You are so clearly not. So, you go on seeing the world however you want to, regardless of how reality really exists. Good luck to ya.

I'm done arguing with an imbecile.

Ron Paul, Ross Perot ...
both hobbit size men from Texas, both yapping on about isolationist policies, both have the same initials ....
Has anyone ever seen these two in the same room at the same time?

Well not sure if Ron Paul and Ross Perot have ever been in the same room, but you can be certain that the Goldman Sachs CEO and Romney/Obama have been in the same room making deals under dim lighting. Think about it...

I don't think Romney is the same type of croanie-backslap-rape-the-servents oligarch as Goldman Sachs management and of course the modern democratic party.

So is hummus from Lebanon or does it have interplanetary origins?

Wow, without Wiki, how am I gonna find out who the Modern Weepers are?

I wonder if Ron Paul likes hummus?

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 5:23 PM

All the good Presidents have enjoyed hummus:
Washington, Jefferson, Kennedy, Honest Abe, etc... And rumours are flying about Ron Paul sightings at Mamouns. Just saying.

Let me fix that for you 5:41

Ron Paul loves hummus and is the only candidate who doesn't hate black people.

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 5:44 PM

Ron Paul was the one who said that most of the black people
In congress were criminals.

Well, the CBC is an especially stupid batch of people. That doesn't mean that 51% of them are criminals though.

Man, this place gets more right wing all the time. You guys should spin off a "Jersey Vegan" branch to get rid of this chaff.

Then we can back to our intelligent, New Yorker-esque discourse on jizzing in chicks' ears.
