the reason the post office is unable to "turn a profit" is simply because the us post office is required to prepay health benefits for the great grandchildren of the great grandchildren of OUR great grand children's grandchildren. it's being used in a scheme to "lessen" the budget deficit and it's not something that should be done.
would not do anything. in my area all broadband and utilities are pre determined thanks to exclusive rights contracts since before i was born. i live on a side of town which means i have to use THIS utility provider or none and i have a choice between one cable broadband provider or the one guy who gets to sell satellite.
what upsets me is the fact i just found out that lawyers can commit crimes during the course of a court proceeding and be immune from civil actions for it. seeing as they rarely get put in a state that renders them permanently unable to practice the law.
the fact they lost a ruling trying to save their sunken ship means less than nothing to be compared to that.
I'm not sure why the farmers don't sue Monsanto for trespass, breaking and entering, loss of livelihood and negligently contaminating their farms with their unwanted genetically modified seeds. monsanto has failed in a legal obligation to prevent their genetically altered seed from ruining the farmers organic non genetically engineered crops.
my question is when will someone try to take the company behind righthaven to court. with the Revelation that the transfer of copyright was improper I'm betting a judge says they have no protections from anyone and everyone who wants money from righthaven.
everyone should be thanking UMG. thanks to them the court is going to be ruling that a flase copyright takedown notice constitites infringement and that a false copyright takedown notice is able to get the insane damages that they claim through the riaa housewives/the elderly/the dead/ people who don't own the internet owe them
there is also a need for ethics to ******* return. posting things getting people killed, posting unsubstantiated blog posts and twitter comments as fact. and the fact that shows like the o'rielly factor and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart aren't forced to have a disclaimer saying that it's entertainment tv and not a legitimate news program is sickening.
to be fair corporations are not people. they are faceless entities that exist in a legal quagmire. a person has the rights guaranteed in the Constitution. the only rights a corporation should have is the right to conduct business honestly & fairly. but because of their legal quagmire status they get away with infringing the rights of the citizens but their rights get protected. when a corporate employee calls you up and threatens you. nobody gets arrested or punished. but if you threaten a corporation then well by god your in prison faster than you can blink
opinions do not exist when someone is telling you they are certified expert and such. opinions do no count when money is on the line. you are right or you are wrong and if you are wrong. you pay out the arse for it.
"You didn't answer my question. So, in what you say here, it means it's perfectly fine for the gov't to censor movies, books and music, because it involves selling a product from a producer to a consumer for a sum."
there's a difference between censorship and a stopping some **** who hocks a book telling people eating goji berries cure cancer (only 49.99!). leave it to a republican/democrat/independent to be unable to do anything except stir up controversy by scaremongering. corporations are not people and extending them rights is something the court should undo.
