They can keep it up and I will cancel my internet, my cell phone, my cable TV and have nothing to do with satellites. I will go back to News Papers delivered to my home. I will watch only broadcast television and put my land line back in.
Then it will be just like the old days when the FBI only tried to infiltrate us and set us up in a sting. They can tap my land line and I will make up stuff to talk about. Gotta keep those guys busy listening.
Remember this is a huge country and there's lot of land where no one lives. It's easy to escape the city life. Just get on a bus, Gus, drive your car Lar, and get the hell out of there.
Everytime I think of our current government I think of Star Wars and the wise words of Princess Leia:
"The tighter your grip, the more star systems will slip through your fingers"
No great loss, since there is no proof of an afterlife. From what I've seen of God's works, that would be the ultimate joke on you. You believed it because some human wrote it down, and there is nothing there for ya. Oops! Control the masses with the fear of losing their immortal soul. Har Har!
Record the incident directly to the cloud. Don't be a dumbass and have it sitting on your phone. If they confiscate your phone with no footage on it. That's a lawsuit. Sue the bastards, they are broke. Nail them now!
Cable TV doesn't respond to my requests which are "Let me pay for only the Channels I want". I really, really don't want all the extra channels. So I stopped buying it. Cable AND Dish, the big come on for the big ripoff. I don't know what LALA Land the CBS CEO is living in but the lala land I live in, CBS is required by law to broadcast over the open airwaves. ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and the GW are all networks and required by the FCC to broadcast. That's it no more argument. After all we were forced to buy all those stupid digital boxes so we could watch TV.
Hallelujah!! About time. I don't remember a lot from my youth because of the haze I was operating in, but I remember this lesson from George Lucas. The most poignant line every stated in a movie and I quote from Star Wars "The tighter your grip, the more star systems will slip through your fingers." In other words MPAA and RIAA, we smell your foul stench. The corporations forget that according to the supreme court they are only 1 person, 1 entity. So treat as such. Vote against anything the corporations want. Believe me when I say no corporation is your friend! Unless you are an American politician then that's all that matters. The hell with the people.
As a tech for 30 years I have installed thousands of McAfee ripoffs. We used to joke? McAfee was creating the viruses! He was just too quick in finding the latest greatest virus. Nothing sells product like fear. We made 2 mill a year just installing it. What a gravy train. But totally full of it. In all my years as a tech and cleaning Virus, Malware and just bad installs I have never run across a virus that actually did any harm. I never lost a hard drive, I never lost a computer. I had way more problems with crap manufacturing of computer parts than I ever did with a Virus. GM was a customer and we found the Word virus on thousands of documents. Did it hurt anything? NO! It just spread itself around. But we made tons of money getting rid of it. Companies like GetSavin with their browser hijacking are far more worrisome and predatory than any virus I ever ran into.
To cement my point: Have you ever heard of a hacker losing their system because they were developing a virus? NO! Never! It would be in a blog somewhere. Google it. "hacker loses system developing virus" I did! Nobody has ever been reported.
