So you are saying you don't want her on the board, because she supported warrentless surveillance, so you will make the same argument and protest against anyone from the Obama administration when they try to get on boards of tech companies. I am sick of people claiming that they are upset about an issue when they are really just upset that the person was on the wrong team. I was involved in several groups that supported Net neutrality and when Obama was elected the groups disbanded. We still don't have net neutrality.
The guidelines also tell schools to look at race to make sure they are not disproportionally suspending african american children. The goal should be to foster a environment where kids can learn. If a child is disruptive and not interested in learning the school needs to be able to remove that child from school. Additionally, I am sure majority of students that are suspended are male, so by this logic we should take that into account and make sure we suspend an equal percentage of female.The only reason this is not mentioned is that males are not a minority (they are less than 50%, but not a minority).
It seems that when Obama takes his yearly vacation to Martha's Vineyard he stops by Brian Roberts house. They go golfing together. I don't foresee Comcast having any issues from this administration. It is becoming less about your product and more about who you know. I will not be surprised if they buy Time Warner and that is approved by this administration.
Have Mark Zuckerburg or someone explain why this guy is important. The general public has never heard of Diffie, but you can have someone they have heard of explain that he built the underpinnings of the secure internet.
When you have a large failure like the ACA web site, the blame starts with the integrator which was Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). They are the ones that split up the work to the contractors, identify requirement, and accept the finished software. If they fail at this there is no way the site will work properly. The contractors probably did not do a good job here, but even if they had the project would still fail with bad system integration.
A large number of lobbyist lobby the Obama Administration. The administration is responsible for the day to day running of the government. Many of the most contentious issues of today are being done through the admininstation the EPA (carbon tax), HHS (ACA implementation), etc. The names of lobbyist that were developed ignore this reality. Here are some names that reflect this reality.
From the article "Take the example of a Fox News employee, Joyce Evans, who tweeted the following to followers of the local Philadelphia station". She does not work for Fox News Channel, so calling her a Fox News Employee is bogus. If you are saying no one would misunderstand what was being claimed, I present Androgynous Cowherd and his comment Keywords Here which was a rant against Fox News. I also like the claim that I work for Fox News, because apparently no one else would care about blatant misrepresentation of the truth. I do not work for Fox News, but I do believe it is important to be accurate.
It truly saddens me that this blog has resorted to this level of misrepresentation. The story stands on its own as a dumb thing a news anchor did. This blog often makes good arguments about intellectual property, but now all that can be ignored since you are making claims in the blog post that imply something that is not true. The blog can now be lumped with numerous others out on the internet that either make false claims or false implications.
The Fox News claim here is bogus. It was FOX 29 in Philly. This has nothing to do with Fox News. I understand that words are being twisted here since Fox 29 News anchor can be described as Fox News employee, but it is misleading since Fox News is a well known brand. As for the person who fell for it and started denigrating Fox News. Who exactly is the propagandist? If it was an NBC 10 News Employee you would be fine with them being referred to a NBC News anchor and then a rant about how NBC News is biased and just propaganda?
Brian Roberts does not need to care about what the laws are since he politically connected. Obama has stopped by his house on several occasions when he was in Martha's Vineyard, he controls NBC, and he is a major political fund raiser. America is becoming a country where political connections are more important than accumulated earnings or the law.
He read the story as a bed time story to his kids. I agree that it is interesting to look at the copyright implications of this. In fact, it is interesting to look at the copyright of reading bed time stories to your kids when you are on the road. Copyright is broken and leads to all sorts of unjust outcomes. Lets put the Green Eggs and Ham story in context, it was a minuscule part of what he was talking about. It is kind of interesting that this is the tiny unimportant part of the speech is getting all the coverage.
You do realize that the Affordable Care Act, he was railing against is intended to fail. It is intended to be an unworkable combination of public and private bureaucracies that leads to the creation of a government run healthcare system. President Obama has implied that this public option was his preference, but the public was not ready for it.
