It is actually about cars in general and Naders claim that the Automobile industry ignores safety for profit.

Maximum speeds only

Your experience may vary. I quit watching a movie on Netflix last night because the speed had dropped so much as to be unwatchable. They need to start guaranteeing minimum speeds not maximum. They have fiber in my Neighborhood and I am not upgrading. No point. I don't get what I pay for now.

People have been making fun of peoples name probably forever. Look at my first name and you can probably guess what I had to endure.

I guess I never realized that people were making fun of me because I had an English name and I am Scotch-Irish.

@J.P.

I don't see any reason to be disappointed. There is very much a tech/privacy angle to this.

As far as overloading the media I tend to agree. A few years ago the media was overloaded about a "shock jock" who called a women's college basketball team a " bunch of Nappy Headed Hoes".

You couldn't get any real news for two weeks.

It has been a lot more that thirty years. Do a search for Reefer Madness. The interesting thing is, until the United States started signing treaties to stop the opium trade in China, drug laws were ruled unconstitutional. If memory serves the history channel has a good DVD on that.

Re: Because it is the law. @dent1980

There is nothing illegal about telling anyone that. The basis of Affirmative Action is that you do not hire the first person available but you Affirmatively look for a minority to take the job. That is why, from a legal basis the white guy was not discriminated against because he is not member of a protected class. The employer is required by law to look for a black woman. Once all opportunity to do so has been exhausted they can hire someone else.

As much as I hate NPR I have leaned a lot about the way these laws operate and the rational behind them.

I have also spent thirty years in Industry and I have seen HR jump through all sorts of hoops to make managers hire a minority.

Huh? Zuck is hard core Democrat. I am sure he is pitching a product to help the Obama Republicans win in the next election.

Cantor's loss has terrified a lot of career politicians and their supporters. I am sure Zuckerberg is working very hard to make sure that doesn't happen again.

Look at how Eric Cantor lost

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/06/11/Cantor-Campaign-Spent-More-at-One-Steakhouse-than-Brat-Did-on-Entire-Campaign

Brat would not have won without the support of Drudge and Brietbart.

It works both ways. You need money to fight the Media. During the 2012 GOP primaries there were complaints that the Drudge Report only linked to positive stories about Romney and negative stories about his opponents. Drudge linked to that article too.

The CNN's, MSNBC etc are also as bad but from a different political viewpoint. They never would have allowed Bush to get away with the IRS shenanigans the Obama is.

Money is very much a part of free speech. You have no right to take away my ability to use it to support whoever I want.

The PAC's were designed to allow the rich to get around the Campaign Finance laws anyway.

Laws are for the little people.

Re: smaller size of electronics means smaller satellites

You can make Semiconductor devices radiation hardened. Harris corporation used to do it. The problem is some of the steps are so outside normal processing that in essence you need a separate fab to make them. That is why Harris closed it's VHSIC lab many years ago.

How about the NAACP?

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Sports/2014/04/30/NAACP-Honoring-Sterling-Disgraces-Itself. If the scandal had happened a week later Stirling would have gotten his award.

Ellison doesn't stand a chance. This is a classic Jesse Jackson shake down to move ownership to a black owner.

He did the same thing with Coca-Cola in the Sixties but all of top links on Google reflect more recent shakedowns.

It is about the voters not the amount of viewers.

One thing cable can do much better than broadcast is target voters in specific districts. They can also help out one candidate over the other by what they charge to advertise. This is very poorly regulated so they can play kingmaker quite easily.

You are naive if you think individuals can't donate all they want. They just have to play legal games to do it. PAC's, Super Pac's, or controlling a major network.

It was the people outside the main stream media pointed out the Harry Reid was going to profit from the seizure of the Bundy ranch. Once that came out the Feds backed down.

The Supreme court ruling is just leveling the playing field. If you can't put your money behind your mouth you do not have freedom of speech.
