This revelation is about as enlightening as knowing countries spy on each other and use their spying to support their own interests. This is not shocking and it is not news. Sad, wrong and probably not ethical, but still this is the way things have been since we all came down out of the trees.
At the airport he'd probably be thrown in jail for carrying around his I have a dream speech since it would be: terrorist material that could influence government. I didn't think I would live to see the day where democratic governments began to act like Nazi Germany.
Google Glass and regular glasses have the same restriction
That is that your peripheral is slightly limited.
I got pulled over once because my back windshield was cracked. When I pointed out that I could see quite clearly and the crack in the windshild was not blocking my view. The officer (looking to fill the city coffers with money) discovered that my driver's license had a different city. So he wrote me up for not calling the DMV and updating my address (I had moved to this new city 3 months ago). Apparently this offence is a $50 fine. Seriously?!? for a DL not having the correct address?
1) During her six years as MILCON leader Senator Feinstein had a conflict of interest due to her husband Richard C. Blum’s ownership of two major defense contractors, who were awarded billions of dollars for military construction projects that were approved by Senator Feinstein. 2) After Feinstein’s unsuccessful gubernatorial race in 1990, she was fined $190,000 for failure to properly report campaign contributions. 3) The National Association of Mining Districts voiced suspicions about continued back-room favoritism for Catellus (a gold mining company), and as noted by the San Francisco Chronicle, Catellus has given $100,000 in political contributions to Senator Feinstein over the past four years.” 4) DiFi introduced a gun bill that would set out to ban the sale of what she has termed “assault weapons,” and ammunition clips capable of holding a large number of rounds of ammo. There is only one problem with the bill in that the bill exempts government officials and other officials. 5) DiFi charged with holding the intelligence establishment to account has said the NSA mass collection of phone records is “not surveillance”
So there are two possibilities here: 1 - DiFi is morally corrupt working in her own self interest. 2 - DiFi is a heavy drug user and actually believes her own bull shit.
I go for the first which would make her the poster child of the liberal left hypocrisy
Despite the 'poisioning of the well' Innovation has marched on
I don't know if I agree with you in full on this one. Here are some examples where the **AA's have tried to block innovation and so far failed: VCR MP3 Players YouTube Pandora Ruku Aereo
That doesn't mean that the MafiAA's haven't attempted to block innovation or posioned the well from time to time, but I think we will see these self appointed guardians die, hopefully within the next ten years or less.
I used to be employed by Optum. Which used to be called Ingenix. They changed their name due to some legal troubles. I am suprised to see Optum added to the list of government cronys because of their past legal problems including going before congress to justify themselves. My guess is someone's palms somewhere have been greased with $$$.
