Remember, every profession defends its own members from outsiders. Doctors are reluctant to testify against other doctors. Mike Nifong committed felony subornation of perjury in his effort to make the Duke rape cases stick and he still hasn't spent a day in jail. It took years to get him disbarred. And the following quote was written in 1960 by the late Mark Clifton.
Any judge, anybody around the courts, anybody connected with the press, and maybe even some of the public knew that any police officer will swear to any lie to back up another police officer because he might need the favor returned tomorrow.
I'll believe sanctions in both this and Prenda when they actually happen.
Back in 1992, my cable company offered me this wonderful five channel deal for $30/month. The SciFi Channel (which is the one I wanted to watch) and four channels whose names I have mercifully forgotten. When I asked about getting the one channel I wanted, I was snottily informed I had to take the bundle or nothing.
I chose nothing, canceled my account with them, and haven't gone back. Not to them, or any other source with the power to try and force content down my throat against my will. When I want to watch a movie, my brother gets it via Netflix and DVD.
It's entirely possible that Cablevision filed the suit because their customer base may well have started doing as I have done. Unless strangled by a bought government, where no competition exists in the commercial arena, it WILL arise.
I use a hearing aid, and it massively irritates the one working ear I have. But a non-surgical bone conduction hearing aid? One that might give me some semblance of binaural hearing without turning my ear canal into a mass of pain?
Where do I sign up and what percentage of my soul do they want?
