We already know Homeland Security is answerable only to the president, and does not recognize any constitutional rights of we American citizens. Why should we have any rights to object. We need to elect government representatives that will abolish this travesty of justice called Homeland Security.
What gets me is we (Customers) are their bread and butter, but are treated like the scum of the earth. Just look at their rules and regulations. We have no right to object to anything they choose to do to us. I as an xmember of the Hughesnet family have spent countless hours on the phone with customer support (there's an oxymoron in there somewhere) dealing with slower than stated speeds and days of outages. If you ask to be let out of your contract because they can't provide the services that were promised at signup you're told sure for $300 we will be happy to let you out. The question here is, when do we get a fair shake in dealing with phone, internet, electric, etc... providers.
As the owner of a domain name I would be really upset if my domain was siezed, and I would be out for blood if it had a mistaken siezure for child pornography label on it even for one minute. Domain names may seem expendable to some, but when you consider the time invested in building your following of visitors only to have that suddenly whiped from existance without due process is inexcusable. If you ask me I would say this country is on a toboggan ride strait to hell.
I am waiting to see how the boy pimping party plays out. I would like to see a congressional investigation of those involved, but with the government in denial I suppose nothing will happen. Seems with that sort of thing being a bid no no at least someone in the press would pick it up.
The first one reminds me of a package I ordered this Summer. It started in Northern California, went up into Canada, came back through Chicago, down to Texas, and passed me 100 miles to the west. I didn't want to see where it was going after that so I drove a 100 miles and picked it up myself. Sheesh!
This wikileaks fiasco is destroying the credibility on some of our major instutions. I for one am deeply ashamed of the behavior I'm seeing concerning this matter. I was watching a fox video this morning where the news correspondant described wikileaks as "An Information Stealing Site". Excuse me but wikileaks didn't steal anything. Spin Doctors!
