Your wrong here, protection of our democracy comes from whistle blowers who have always found sympathetic journalist to help them.
Your argument is a simple one but ignores the larger context, who really cares if she helped snowden? it doesn't matter, its a distraction to the fact that we just found out that two governments that are supposed to be 'free' have setup such intrinsic spying operations that even china is drooling.
If you agree with what the government are doing then just say so, but to suddenly argue that she is not a proper journalist because she helped snowden realy ignores the larger issue and is irrelevant to the problem at hand.
You should be VERY concerned that they are trying to use terrorism to shut down journalist, unless you like oppressive goverments. 10 years from now you could very well be saying long live the king, less you be charged with terrorism for wishing the king ill.
If your ego must insists that your so special that he is giving away your money you gave to him, then you could make yourself feel better and that small amount of money you gave to him fed and clothed one of his children, it was the other saps money that he gave away.
You could also save yourself some time writing such pointless posts and never buy another Microsoft product, or any product for that matter, that you feel is over priced again...wow, problem solved! wasnt that simple. Even though you have a big ego, it doesn't have much in the way of brains.
You are a perfect example of a applefan, thank you for reinforcing the egoistical ignorant stereotype that is a mac user..fucking hilarious
" "dwarf planet" or a Kuiper Belt Object (KBO) or a Trans-Neptunian Object (TNO). "
Pluto was downgraded because he lacks any direction in life, 248 years to what earth does in one? thats just lazy. Clearly he is in a stage of exploration (A trans what?! never mind I don't want to know)
If pluto to ever rise to planet status again, he needs to stop hanging out with his friends in those odd places (clearly with these strange orbits, he is hanging out with the wrong crowd) What else are you doing out there that your not showing neptune?
Let me give you a piece of advice Pluto, next time you come near near Neptune, latch on and hang out with someone who knows how to be a planet. Im sure he will take you on as a moon, baby steps right?. Regardless, you need to get your act together or just leave; the Whole family is watching and you already let us down once, lets not do it again.
That is such a simple view one could only get from outside the country. Its clear you do not understand our political system and the problems it has. Please don't comment on things you know little about.
1. blaming just obama is ignorance at its finest
2. probably not every 0 and 1, just the important ones
3. the universe will probably end in coldness when the last star dies out. Unlikely we will be alive then.
4. I dont care what the government thinks, recording is surveying, I dont care if its never looked at. By there logic they could install a camera in everyone house as long as nobody looks at what its recording...until you know, someone does.
The most disturbing thing ever said in a court in a suppose free society
"It found that even the fact that Nikki's site contained material that was clearly legal (articles criticizing the censorship legislation), the interests of the children must come before freedom of speech"
Its not wise to leave your door open, and its still illegal to walk in someones house even if there door is open, however, if one doesnt lock the door and gets robbed i doubt robber is going to be called brilliant.
My point is, i dont believe snowden did anything brilliant, but i am 100% sure that NSA had there network setup incompetently.
When money, government, and ignorance collide, the resulting wreckage is this kind of insanity. It is impossible for rapid share to follow this, and it is impossible for the governments to enforce this. The 'copyright companys' will not gain either as its simply not going to have any effect on what they are trying to stop.
All that is gained here is humiliation for them and amusement for us, with a few rich lawyers sprinkled on top.
Sounds like the same philosophy Reganomics follows, basically the more money the rich have, the less everything cost.
Of course there is no proof of this, infact with poverty rising the way it is since the 80's, id imagine it has the reverse effect.
In the end, its 60.00 for a game because people would pay 60.00. If a game is going to sell for 60.00, there is no reason to lower it. This is capitalism and giving the rich more money doesnt change the fundamental rules.
While i am sure it would be more complicated then that, your premise is sound.
The problem is, not enough rich people will get richer, this falls under 'socialism' and it will benefit everyone equally, that's not going to fly for our representatives, who are often more worried about getting richer then the good of citizens.
