Totally agree, they (Government) need to "cause" issue's, which keep getting bigger and bigger, which the liberal media will just go along with the claims until the minority beg the powers that be, to do something, which in the end will be the backdoor to taking control of the internet so the children and unknowledgeable internet users will be safe from terrorism by means of a cyber attack. I call bullshit on this too!! Nothing but a power grab to invoke another knee-jerk reaction to do nothing but take control of more of our freedoms.
Whether he took the deal or ignored it, no matter what, he was going to become a felon, clean and clear and all for something a hand full of over reaching Government a-holes that believed 100% that he broke 13 different laws??????
This whole thing stunk from the word GO, now everybody and everything is back tracking as fast as possible to cover it all up!! Still haven't charged them with anything suitable....more and more it looks to me like a money grab!!!
Amen!! Once they took that away from us is when I made my mind up to distance myself from anything Google, so far I have deleted all my associations of Google except Gmail, which I am working on next!!!
Will they EVER understand this, and they wonder why they can't make any money!!! They have had the chance to change the way people and fans could get music (Internet) but sooooo refuse to change at all, which in turn is why the quality of music has taken a huge dive. When will they learn?
I have Netflix and they announced that season 4 of Sons of Anarchy would be available on Netflix in July.... Here it is September, season 5 is going to start next week and guess what? Netflix still doesn't have it, do a search and lo and behold season 4 in every conceivable format, sorry to say I will be watching season 4 this weekend...............
I have struggled watching this a couple times......what I see is my my Grandmother, sitting there taking shit from kids and not once did anybody come to her rescue. The parents are totally to blame here and I don't want to hear any bullshit sympathy crap on why your kid acts like this. I raised two kids by myself and God forbid they ever disrespect someone they wouldn't be here today. Just imagine if something like this happened to one of your "older" family member, dam straight someone will have to bare the wrath, whether it be death threats or a dam beat down, what happened to this woman, who has worked to insure the safety of said kids, for crap MONEY, gets treated like a pile of shit, is a wake up call to parents everywhere. No matter how many of these "kids" were involved, you will never get any sympathy from me. As far as the money raised, thank God the community is backing her and hell yes she should get enough to retire from having to give a dam about kids anymore.
It all comes down to hard cold cash. Number one they "FINALLY" realize that they don't want to be the police of all they're customers, number 2 if they slam innocent customers with a notice, customer goes somewhere else for service, lost revenue and bad press. I am totally shocked that they took a stand and totally surprised as I thought they would embrace this kind of crap!!
