It is very clear that the most dangerous 4-letter entities to America and American's Constitutional rights aren't some foreign band called ISIS or ISIL. No, the worst of the worst have the acronyms USTR, MPAA, and RIAA. If the US really wanted to advance freedom, it would direct drones on them.
Exactly. You can almost guess what 90% of the comments will be simply by the subject of the article being commented upon. Each site has a handful of the same people who spew garbage and ad hominem like projectile vomit. Wading through comments on sites like Yahoo News is the equivalent of watching some of the worst dregs of reality TV. Good riddance.
I can't tell if you're trolling or if you really are as f'ed up in the head as your ridiculous statements lead me to believe. If you are serious, then it is people like you that need to be put away for the protection of the rest of the world. You are the problem.
No, Anonymous COWARD, no matter how many times you try to claim this stupidity and ignorance is justified, it isn't. People like you need to be put away so you can't harm the rest of society any longer.
MPAA/RIAA are a far greater danger to freedom than any foreign terrorists. If there was real honesty in our justice system, both organizations and all of their top-level management would be facing RICO convictions.
So now we have a convenient list of spineless idiots who we no longer need to show any respect. These PEN writers who have signed this "protest" are craven cowards who mock the very idea of freedom of speech and are now actively patting the backs of the very terrorists who would murder masses of others because of their words.
"Of course we're weasely lying SOBs with no morals and a total contempt for humanity and rule of law. But, you're not allowed to have that evidence proving we're weasely lying SOBs with no morals and a total contempt for humanity and rule of law." -- MPAA
ITT: people who have absolutely no clue about employment law spouting off erroneous and ludicrous opinions about it. Mike has this correct. The Florida department ruled incorrectly, maybe they're as ignorant as many of the commenters here.
To me, this has been the worst travesty of the Obama administration. We expected this type of crap from Bush. But Obama promised transparency but has been anything but so. If anything, his administration has doubled-down on secrecy and added draconian punishment of anyone daring to blow the whistle on the blatantly illegal activities of the government. All of Obama's positive accomplishments will be overshadowed by his legacy of tyrant-like actions in this regard.
I have a new (less than 2 months old) Keurig 2.0 machine. I can easily bypass the DRM well enough but I've been using genuine K-cups since buying it. After brewing just 3 cups a day for a month/half, the machine stopped working, acted as if clogged somehow. Called tech support, they talked me through sticking a paper clip up into the side of the "needles" and flushing water through the machine by holding the activation button. After a couple of those flushes, the machine now works as it should. This must be such a known issue, the tech lady said she was mailing me an "official cleaning tool" to help with this process and that I should use it monthly. Maybe those design engineers shouldn't have spent so much time agonizing over imaginary exploding cups and instead made a more reliable device.
