Let's not forget that Senator Mitchie won't bring the funding resolution to the Senate floor, even though identical funding passed the Senate 100-0 last month. It doesn't matter whether or not Trumpolini signs (or vetoes) with those numbers.
Mitchie won't bring it up because Donnie doesn't like it. WTF?
I'm not defending Venezuela's government.
However, I wonder how they would fare had not the US not interfered in their affairs.
If they fail because their premise was wrong, that's one thing. If they are fail because of another government's interference, that's another.
Just my 2p.
Since Feinstein has been "properly apprised" of the details, there can surely be no problem.
'Course, the details would include whatever "dirt" they have on her.
Meanwhile. back at the ranch...
Tonto, completely unaware of the Lone Ranger's attempt to disguise himself as a door, shot the Ranger's knob off.
The "incumbents" have siphoned off "how much?" to "improve services", and have actually delivered "WTF?". Oh yeah, the C-Levels are enriched - "I forgot". And, let's not hurt the politicos, eh?
When will the customers (no - not "consumers") get what their tax dollars have been paid for?
It could be someone else has made a similar post... TL;DR, it's "late" here, etc, etc.
WTF? Who wrote this "software"? Microsoft?
Just send me a bit of money (say, 10%) of what's been spent... I can "not deliver" with the best of them, and I'll quickly bow out (and retire in a manner to which I would like to be accustomed).
The Senator is only enraged when HER communications, information, or privacy are affected, you silly peon. Now, go away or I shall mock you again.
Are you a some kind of silly human who expects some dignity, privacy, and rights? Pfft! Get over it, or win a Senate seat.
Sorry, but the self-ascribed description "Barrier Breakers" is close, but no cigar.
From my perspective, it's more like "Bernie Bashers".
Damn it all. At least Sanders has principles. I can't say that I agree with him on all (perhaps most) issues, but he IS talking about the rigged system, and the money (and entities controlling money).
How can "rational" people allow big money and "the powers that be" advance Hillbillary? Let's all recognize her for the corporate shill that she is, and will always be. Let's start talking about the real problem, that the USA (hell, the whole world) is under the control of a handful of individuals? Money talks, and HC walks (in the direction and manner dictated by the money). Let's talk about her policies and actions, which have resulted in so much heartache in non-US countries.
Can you say little (and poor) people are El Fucked? I knew you could!
If it weren't for the (rightly expressed) derision on The Reg, I wouldn't have the slightest clue who most of those twits are... I don't click on "news" links about people who are (evidently) popular (self promoted?). I often see their names, but they only seem to be a part of some strange "fandom" and "popular media" interest, and only serve to distract people from reality. Is there anything worthwhile that they've done? What is the excitement all about? Two months ago, I finally discovered why I kept hearing (reading?) about "Kardashians". I thought it was some reference to an obscure SciFi series. Geez! Who gives a shit? Have any of them made a positive influence on society or humanity?
Never thought I'd agree with an oppressive government's policy... (and, I still don't)
"Windows, still held together with tape and bailing wire."
As an IBM Field Engineer explained to me, decades ago:
"Well, here's your problem. Yeah, someone found and fixed the physical interlock failure, but they used amateur (Scotch) tape! You have to use professional (filament) tape!"
Sure enough, filament tape enabled us to get through the night, until parts arrived the next day.
I miss "Earl the Pearl" (the IBM FE). He was a common sense farm boy, and impressed me with his ability to get things working until parts could be obtained and installed. I remember him scavenging batteries from our company cars and using vise grip pliers (for clamps) and spare wire to help us get through a different night, when a 24VDC supply went "South" and the replacement part wouldn't arrive for 12 hours.
'USTelecom said: "The Federal Communications Commission's decision today to insert itself into how video should be delivered to American consumers is unlikely to serve consumers or competition ... The FCC's thumb on the scales will inevitably straightjacket innovation and harm competition, neither of which will serve the public interest."'
Let's refocus... on CUSTOMERS.
Geez, I'm getting tired of this refrain.
How the mighty have fallen... they screwed me & my mates more than 13 years ago during one of their (in)famous "restructurings".
And no, I don't wish to recount (or relive) the sordid details. I'll just let it go at "what goes around, comes around". They've thrown a lot of good services, technologies, and people under the bus for a long time.
Uhh, TECHNOLOGY! That's how we'll fix it! Yeah, that's the ticket!
If guns are such a problem, how about we get the Secret (Cigarette?) Service to disarm?
It's easy for a US politician, surrounded by more firepower than any US citizen can ever HOPE to have, to tell everyone else to disarm.
What a bunch of "maroons".
I so wanted to chime in, and rant about the powers-that-be using "OMG - terrorists, child molesters, (insert popular criminal classes here)."
I believe that if (supposedly) rational and law abiding people succumb to invasions of privacy to "stop the XXX's", then the XXX's have won.
Your post sums up the situation eloquently.
Why isn't that lying sack of shit, that oath betraying motherfucker, NOT in a maximum security, "pound me in the ass", Federal prison, for a LONG time?
Goddamn traitor, betrayer of the Constitution he swore to uphold... that's what he is (and so many others are).
Wow, glad I was able to vent...
