Here in the States, we have the ability to protest our idiot government and its ideas on banning things. I have personally done this in the past. Takes a lot of work, but it does work and it does create changes in the way our officials make policy.
Make the banning policy seem archaic, which it is in any country, and show the press how unworkable it is. Its obvious that your government has no practical experience with technology and the internet so it will be really easy to make your government look like a bunch of religious idiots who get their banning ideas from some book writen 1800 years ago. We have some real idiots in the US government as well and as soon as you make them look like an idiot, changes take place. Politicians want money, power and quiet annomity and they cant have the third if the people are protesting in the streets.
If you get enough local, and international press on your side you WILL win. Organize and protest. Oh, make sure its peaceful and you have all your permits if any are needed.
Statistics can be made to show anything.
Could it be that music sales fell 8% because the suit and ties who run the company are to lazy to go out and find talent?
I could show them many bands in my area that, with a little work, could be putting out many hits.
But the record companies want cheap, easy, dance/rap/hiphop crap that cost about as much as a bag of dog food to produce and the no talent teens who think this is good eat it up.
I think this is coming to an end for the record companies. People, including teens want quality, band written music. Not this cheap rap crap they been putting out for the past 20+ years.
I remember being 15 back in 1979 and taking pics of me and my 15 year old girl freind with my parents Poloroid. I wonder what ever happend to those pics....
I wish the state would get out of the baby sitting business. Plus, how can the accused be charged with abusing herself? I hope she tells the state to F***OFF and mind their own business.
Please excuse my American ignorance on this matter, but you people over there are really charged a fee to view your TV? What kind of nonsence is that?
I was wondering if it was possible to buy a Dish network satilite on line and view our American TV? I dont know if the Dish Network Satallite is viewable from the UK's vantage point or not. It might be kind of low on the horizon.
Steve, you're just like John in your shortsighted statement. Again, only an idiot would say something as stupid as you just did. Cancle NASA? Where do you think 99% of the technology you take advantage of came from? It came from NASA and those "welfare Scientist" as you call them.
Even NACA made many strides in science before it was renamed NASA in 1958 if I am not mistaken. Its amazing how quick you idiots are to bite the hands that feed you.
JOhn-you're a short sighted man. Only an idiot would say something like that who does not understand the issues of robotics at its current stage of development. Only humans can properly explore space, the moon, and beyond and if we "Chicken Out" based on your design, we lose everything that humans have envisioned for the last 75 years.
Just so you all know I am an American but I like to be refered to as part of the human race. All should know that all Americans are not these over-zealous christians who take the bible literally. After 45 years on this Earth I am still trying to figure out why grown adults behave in such a way as to add more excuses of killing, segragation, false science, etc... in the name of god. There is no proof that there is a god yet people who I find are weak minded and suseptible to "brain-washing" seem to beleive that there is based on "faith".
Faith is not "FACT" nor is it theory. It's more of an extra human emotion that people use to act as a crutch on or to refrain from excepting resposibilities. I find that 99.99% of all religious people are the most degenerate, vile, polluted, and scary people I have ever met. My dad, who is not a god fearing man is the most upstanding, and moral person I know, as with other people like him that I know. On the other hand, people who are of the church, both muslim, christian, jewish, are the most mixed up people I ever met. One guy I know is always abusing his kids and when I say thats not very christian of him, he gets angry and says not to bad mouth his religion. So, in his mind, his religion is more important than his kids...imagine that! You can get the same answer from "born again" christians.
I just do not understand how we,as human beings who are "self aware" can have such faith in something that is totaly non-existant. I would prefer to have faith that some other human would stop and help me if I got into a car accident rather than pray for me. I would like to have faith that another human would not murder me because I do not beleive as he or she does. I have a lot of faith, but its faith based on real things that might actually happen rather than something will never happen, such as god coming back to this rock inhabited by humans who shit in their drinking water, kill for paper money, power, fame. It just boggles the mind.
If technology permitted, I would be off this rock in the blink of an eye and let all these idiots kill each other in the name of a f***ed up god--both good and evil gods.
Sure you are Rick...Linux is less supported than Vista. I have run all flavors of Linux and although its a good OS, support is non-existant, so you're on your own. Good luck finding drivers for common windows hardware. When reality sets in after your linux install, let me know and I will try not to say "told you so".
There is no rhyme or reason for these kids to get the kind of treatment suggested in the article. Asshole prosecuters are just trying to make a name for themselves. Like the statement above; Murderers and rapist get less time if convicted. Hell, OJ got off scott-free because he had money to buy his freedom.
I have absolutly no repsect for police, judges, or the the US law enforcment system. It all depends on what the accused looks like, their creed, color, money etc...as to what type of sentence they will recieve.
