I can't find anything about that... everything I've read says she worked as a district attorney and an attorney general. Those are essentially the state's lawyers, which is definitely an oppressive job, but it's not the same thing as being a police officer. Don't confuse terms.

We are, but the userbase is heavily anarchist. Prepare to be heavily mocked and downvoted whenever you say anything positive about communism. We really need a separate website like this just for communists.

You can create a Wiki page for it; just go to raddle.me/wiki/<name of your new page>. It'll say the page doesn't exist, but give you the option of creating it. Once you've edited it to your liking, send it to one of the mods, and if it's worthy, we'll add a link to it in the main wiki page.

I object to eating meat in general. Say you're a small subsistence farmer who keeps chickens. You treat them well; you allow them to roam across your land freely, you feed them a healthy diet, et cetera. It would still be unethical to kill one of your chickens in order to eat them, for the same reasons it would be unethical to kill an innocent human before their time. The only time in that scenario in which it would be ethical to eat one of those chickens is if one of them had already died of natural causes. In that case, since they're already dead and don't need their body anymore, you might as well put it to good use (i.e. sustaining yourself).

The only time I ever eat meat is when it's literally about to be thrown away (and is still safe to eat). At that point, I might as well eat it, because the damage of killing the animal has already been done, and by eating it I won't be the cause of the meat needing to be re-stocked, which would cause another animal to be murdered. Even then, I try to give it to a homeless person, or someone else who I know is an omnivore, to prevent them from going out and buying meat for that meal.

Not really, its only message is 'US patriotism has gone way too far.' Plus it's The Onion; people who aren't familiar with it mistake it for actual news all the time. (I thought you had eaten the onion at first when you posted it here.) Opinion pieces and what not should be fine here, but satire pieces belong somewhere else, in my opinion.

Probably shouldn't post this in a forum for serious articles, but this is funny.

If you really don't like that university, programming is probably the easiest subject to learn online. If you're good about challenging and setting goals for yourself, you can get a university-level education in programming just by reading free online programming books, or watching free programming videos.

As far as not having a degree goes, if you apply to smaller companies, you can tell them you have a bachelor's in computer science, and if you show that you're competent enough in the interview, they may not bother to check to see if you really have a degree. Just be sure to say you graduated from a university somewhere far away, to minimize the chances that one of your coworkers also went to the university you claim to have graduated from, and they start asking you questions about it.

Nah. The only people actually calling for the removal of up/downvotes are the ultra-hardcore anarchists; the ones with the non-Euclidian ideologies who think that voting (for an elected official under capitalism) is bad, therefore voting (on posts on an internet forum) must also be bad. The rest of us like the vote system, because it helps filter out the muck.

If vote manipulation is an issue, then someone should program anti-vote-manipulation capabilities into Postmill.
