Re: And we thought BREXIT was bad

Stupid doesn't have a shelf life, Brexit will be remembered long after a poor leadership decision. A presidential term is four years, brexit will be generational in length before the mistake will be recognized, longer to amend and repair...and by the way this whole article remains as speculation until inauguration

FBI Director wants 'adult conversation' about backdooring encryption

fishbone

I'm sure this will work as well as gun laws in Chicago have stopped gangbangers from shooting other gangbangers, never mind the innocent bystanders I'm sure they'll only hit their targets.

Re: Adult conversation?

Too true and it's going to happen because the noise of the unthinking will win over civil rights even though the constitution should secure them. The fourth amendment was trashed in the late nineties to accommodate the Amtrak crowds that rode the northeast corridors. Pee in the jar or be fired was not a phrase I remember from civics nor was public safety concerns are more important than personal liberties, but it happens regardless to thousands every year who work in public transportation.No evidence, no suspicion, no witnesses. Same thing will happen again when the chatter reaches a high enough level.

And don't forget the lobbying efforts of large companies that influence legislation,regulation, and elections. As an American I like to see the process corruption spread out a little so we don't have all of it here.

Sex ban IT man loses appeal – but judge labels order 'unpoliceable'

Re: downvote here

I've considered myself a responsible anarchist who was capable and ready to perform acts so desperately needed for society to prune the gene pool, that said this set of circumstances will demand I abandon that concept. This is not the gentleman who I want as a neighbor but if he hasn't been convicted leave'm alone till you have. More like it's time to weed put the "you wouldn't be here if you hadn't done something" mentality.

Obama: What will solve America's gun problem? What could it be? *snaps fingers* Technology!

fishbone

Re: Huh?

You should probably just stay in your bed and never come out. Bad stuff happens everywhere, stupid people make it happen more often. Sometimes people come to do bad things and real adults have to do things they otherwise wouldn't, like protect family and friends. Most likely that requires a weapon capable of meeting or exceeding the threat involved. Pardon my condescending tone but I wanted to be sure of your understanding the point.

Re: US Libs Love Regs

Hate to say bullcrap but it's apparent you have forgotten the role Dubya's controlled Federal Energy Regulatory Commission played in the ENRON period of fleecing California's ratepayers, I'm confident many of those officials and behind-the-scene players were lawyers. And I doubt if there were many liberals included in that crowd.

Foreign firms must obey EU laws no matter where they're based, says EU. Hear that, Google?

WTF?

Re: Tit for Tat, EU. We can do that too!

Perhaps that fine continental history you've read points out that the US government is the only reason this discussion isn't carried out in German. Do that by yourself next time the froggies and limeys set up another country for economic doom that can only end badly. If you don't like Google don't click on it , in the end if you initiate contact and request a free service that expands into something more by your own design why'd they have to comply with all applicable laws across your borders, you went to them first.

This week it rained in San Francisco and the power immediately blew out. Your tech utopia

Re: Hate sf

Couldn't agree more, lived in Alameda for fifteen years after leaving the military in norcal. Weather sucked when it sucked and that was for months at a time yearly, great when it was nice though. As for April in Scotland, well all that and Scots too why aren't they beating down the doors to get in? After twenty years in San Diego I can report bubble heads abound but seventy degree weather in December makes up for not owning raingear.

Re: Isn't this a federal issue?

When I was a kid in the sixties there was a hotel on Marathon Key that had a chain link fence out in the gulf of Mexico fifty feet at least separating their beach and touristas from the island residents. This was way before it became a destination, it was fishing shacks and not affluent natives. Can't imagine that now but only from a liability standpoint.

Pardon my ignorance of most of this as I am only an ignorant colonial American, but has anyone who has lived in the US make a comparison of cable prices, quality of programming (low imho), and allowing monopolistic areas to exist and dominate. Just curious.
