No matter what you might think of the surveillance debate happening in DC this week, there's no honest way to deny that the debate would be very different (and likely wouldn't be happening at all) if Ed Snowden had leaked a bunch of documents to reporters almost exactly two years ago.
Seems like British citizens get what they deserve. The Conservatives said they'd do this if elected, so I don't feel any sympathy if they're stupid enough to put them back in power. Enjoy your police state, UK!
One of the reasons that I backed the Tiko 3D printer on Kickstarter, besides the low price, was because they use non proprietary spools of filament, and allow any common file type. When it, and other low cost 3D printers become ubiquitous hopefully this proprietary filament nonsense will fall by the wayside thanks to good ole competition.
I'm sorry, but TD has a problem with cops using a warrant to go into a home that actually has drugs? I can understand the umbrage if they, say, threw a flash bang into a baby's crib and didn't find any drugs, but Tim glosses over #4 of the affidavit where the informant bought drugs at the home from the defendant. That seems like a big bit of information to ignore in this rant over police "overreach."
There's plenty of stories you can find to show police behaving badly, but this doesn't seem to be one of them. How about everyone put down their pitchforks and torches for a moment, eh?
(potentially criminal liability in the form of "materially supporting terrorists" for merely providing an open platform that anyone can use, you are more or less guaranteeing that important content, such as that which documents war crimes and atrocities gets banned as well. Is that really what Castle and Carlin are looking to do?
This principle could have used this as an opportunity to educate (odd concept for a supposed educator to be sure) the students about the history and significance of the flag. Instead we get this ridiculous buffoonery.
I don't see why everyone is up in arms about an official possibly abusing a government perk. How is this any different than calling out an official for misuse of a taxpayer funded credit card? Your boss gets a statement every month on your company credit card, so big deal. If you don't want to be held accountable, then leave your free EZ pass behind and pay the toll out of your own pocket.
I have no problem with this. As long as it wasn't an EZ Pass he paid for himself.
Calm down everyone and loosen the tinfoil a bit. ;)
