So this "reporter" even sets up a coded communications method? Like covert spies? He encourages the State Department contact to gather more information, including classified info? You people can whine and wail all you want, but this "reporter" clearly crossed the line from investigative journalism into a national security threat. You're giving license to criminal, and even treasonous, activity under the cloak of "reporting". I hope the DoJ nails this bastard to the wall.
I'm not an NRA supporter, I think they're seriously crazy. However, in this instance, could they be a little bit correct, we do need weapons to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government? Cases like this are why so many people distrust the police, why so many police get shot.
Why is anyone buying this crap from EA? And idiots who already paid for a pre-order are buying another copy just to get online??? Are you serious? If you are stupid enough to pay EA any money, you are too stupid to complain when they screw you. BAH!
Why no mention of Broder's ties to the oil industry? Broder set out to do a hatchet job on Tesla and got called out for it. This is yet another black eye on the NYT, they're becoming as bad as CBS/CNET.
This is yet another example of the danger corporations have on the free world. What is needed is a swift and decisive blow to the corporate world, a roundup of CEOs who are then frog-marched into a holding pit to be tried for treason against humanity.
I like the idea of cutting off their funding. And I see the trolls keep spewing the misinformation that anyone who doesn't like their treasonous methods must be "against copyright". No, dipsh*t, your mendacity is what we're against. If there wasn't something nefarious in the works, why would you be so intent upon keeping it secret, even from Congress? I really do hope you people get what's coming to you.
Whatever law enforcement powers that Congress has needs to be invoked on this a**wipe. March into Kirk's office and perp-walk him out in chains. Enough is enough and it is time that we, the people, show "our government" who is the boss. Kirk and his kind are worse than terrorists.
Just don't buy their products. That's a simple and very effective way of telling them you do not want their arcane restrictions. Whining and then giving them your money anyway just says you're a loser.
All I need to see is the fact that I can put my address into OpenStreetMaps (on the most populous street in Atlanta GA USA) and it comes back with nothing, saying there is no such address. I put it in Google Maps and I can even get a Street View of my building. And if I manually find my location on OpenStreetMaps and have it identify the location, it is wrong by a huge margin (many many miles).
I don't think Google has much to worry about here.
I was never an Obama fan, not during the primaries and not during the general election. But, I simply could not support McCain/Palin in any way, so I accepted the fact that Obama became President. His actions so far have proven my suspicions of him to be correct, he is much less than honest and far more incompetent than I imagined he would be. But, he is still the President.
However, when I see posts that childishly mangle the President's name (Obummer? Really?) and use the overly-abused "facist" and "marxist" and "socialist" tags (incorrectly, at that), I simply can not take anything that person writes or says seriously. If you cannot discuss something in an adult manner, save the discussion for adults who can.
