Good - posing as someone looking to buy drugs is a whole lot different than cutting a suspect's cable or phone line and then pretending to be there to repair it.

He's in the pocket of the defense contractors running these programs.
The move may thwart any attempt to reform the NSA's mass-surveillance authorities.

Can't we just string him up by the short ones?

Ah, so that explains it...
WASHINGTON—Pouring out an overflowing sack of mail onto his desk, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) reportedly hunkered down Wednesday for yet another long night of opening letters from constituents asking him to give large corporations more tax bre...

We should reduce corporate tax rates. Of course that'll cause a drop in tax receipts, so we must shift the taxes over to those who can afford it (upper class).

If you think you're not the one paying for those taxes you're dreaming. We, the consumer, pays corporate taxes. If the point of corporate taxes is to reign in on inequality, then this is obviously not the right way to do it. We are taxing ourselves by taxing the group (corporations).

Seems legit, at least more than the real reasons.

“The intersection of politics and cool”? I hope they didn't really believe that.

Pretty amusing that Paul thought he could slap his campaign logo onto anything and nobody would complain about it.
Paul's campaign didn't have Ray-Ban's consent.

They didn't say he can't wear them. He can't sell them with his name on them.

Soon, we won't "own" anything, it will just be a license. Even if we made something with our own hands, big corporations will figure out a way to own it.
Abraham Williams originally shared:
 
In a particularly spectacular display of corporate delusion, John Deere—the world’s largest agricultural machinery maker —told the Copyright Office that farmers don’t own their tractors. Because computer code snakes through the DNA of modern tractors, farmers receive “an implied license for the life of the vehicle to operate the vehicle.”
It’s official: John Deere and General Motors want to eviscerate the notion of ownership.

Ownership and fair use are under attack.  Read your "EULA" and say NO to BS terms (that means no more software, pretty much, until they admit they are not Alexander The Great or Genghis Khan.)

So get a new job... Stop whining... Remember, a taxpayer voting for a democrat is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.

"My ideas are so conservative that even the people of Louisiana hated them! Vote for me!"

I don't think he's exactly thought this strategy through...
The GOP governor of Louisiana boasts that his home-state voters hated his governing agenda. That's funnier than Jindal seems to realize.

Woo, that means the mass extinction we've triggered will be lucky number 7!
It has been argued that we are on the brink of the next great extinction, which would be the sixth mass extinction event that our planet has seen so far. Or at least, so we thought. According to new research, another hotly debated mass extinction should be added to the recognized list of mass extinction events. Newly gathered data indicates that a previously observed mass die-off was far more widespread than once thought.

Story

One man web development army
Introduction
I have been doing web development since 1995. It was mostly a steam-powered, punch-card-controlled affair back then.
Bragging rights
Learned one dead language, an archaic form of another and bits of pieces of two modern ones. Forgot them all, then taught myself Perl, HTML, JavaScript & CSS and now Selenium & jQuery. Co-inventor of Tellurium (http://te52.com) and the PBehave testing language. Nothing I post should be considered to be the views or opinions of anyone else or even myself because sometimes I post stuff just for the lulz.
Education
  • Boston University
    Classical Languages and Literature, 1991 - 1995
Great centrally-located coffee shop. Wide variety of coffees available and the house blend actually tastes like coffee should, unlike the weak or burnt varieties featured at the national chains. Nice window seats to people watch, too.
