Leaked texts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement's “Intellectual Property” chapter confirm our worst fears: Big Content companies are pushing extreme copyright provisions in a secret trade deal that would put restrictive controls on the Internet.

The USA PATRIOT Act granted the government powerful new spying capabilities that have grown out of control—but the provision that the FBI and NSA have been using to collect the phone records of millions of innocent people expires on June 1. Tell Congress: it’s time to rethink out-of-control spying. A vote to reauthorize Section 215 is a vote against the Constitution.

" The same open-border policies that allow people and goods to flow freely across the continent also make it extremely difficult to crack down on illegal weapons — a fact that arms dealers have been all too eager to exploit."
A continent awash in illegal weapons and radicalized young men has to reckon with gun violence.

I had such high hopes that this would be good.
I primarily use A MacBook Pro and try to always run the latest version of all software. (SO if yo are on Windows, maybe your luck will be better.)
It is terrible. Software is extremely clumsy in all aspects.

Have yet to find out how to setup "private" shares. I really do not want ALL my photos to be public.

Can NOT use for timemachine with any credentials!

Have had to reset, (or restore WD terms more than once) because the thing would not accept my password.

Launch the WEB Page to sign in and with no warning or other explanation or notice and thrown to a Install Java page (Which Never installed.)

The overall product is just terrible.

"... suppose that politicians wanted to encourage laid-off workers to refrain from accepting a new job. What would they do? Naturally, they would offer to send the jobless workers checks so long as they remained unemployed."
The surprisingly robust growth in the US economy in 2014 may have been due to the late 2013 decision by Congress to cease extensions of unemployment benefits. When the federal government stopped sending checks to people who remained unemployed, more of them found work.

I guess I missed something. How can a state say that Cannabis is Legal?

".. the United States Supreme Court has ruled in United States v. Oakland Cannabis Buyers' Cooperative and Gonzales v. Raich that the federal government has a right to regulate and criminalize cannabis. Also, if the cannabis is called "medical cannabis" the federal law still has priority.

Regardless of whether ti should be legal in our minds, the US Law and courts say it is a crime. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_in_the_United_States
Under federal law, it is illegal to possess, use, buy, sell, or cultivate marijuana, since the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 classifies marijuana as a Schedule I drug, claiming it has a high potential for abuse and has no acceptable medical use. Some states and local governments have ...
