He's angry at Google not because they're not wiring his city, but because he claims that ISPs elsewhere will increase his prices (and everyone else's) to compensate for the reductions in price and/or improvement in service that they have to make because of the competition from Google.
He's still taking the position that nobody should try to make the situation better unless they can improve everything all at once for the entire country. That sounds nigh impossible to me, so I would take this piecemeal approach over nothing, even if it doesn't benefit me immediately.
Two recent developments that the liberal (defined in the US) political force has produced: Obamacare and announcement of the Downsizing the US military
Obamacare (you know, health insurance provided by private for-profit corporations) was originally an idea from a conservative think tank. Republicans only opposed it because Obama. The military downsizing was proposed by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, a Republican.
The movie comes out and it is called "Hell spawned rape bands," where your band's characters are depicted as vicious Satanists who prefer pre-teenagers. What you said on camera is overdubbed to show that you are child rapist predator scum.
Sounds like more of a defamation case than copyright.
Re: We tend to forget the truth of the matter and get lost in some some numbers, so here are some for you.
Simply try to ask yourselves if the people hurt or injured by police are really so innocent and picked on by a paramilitaristic government, what were they doing to attract law enforcement's attention to begin with?
Yeah, anybody shot by police was almost certainly guilty anyway... of SOMETHING. Really these trials are kind of a waste of time.
More people are killed by doctors than guns yet that doesn't make the news.
I think you're putting way too much stock in "what makes the news".
Your comparisons don't really make sense anyway. We don't decide how to deal with something based purely on how dangerous it is, but also on how beneficial it is. If we could easily get by without ladders and there were thousands of people falling to their deaths from ladders, you could make a strong case for banning ladders. As it is, there are a lot of jobs we need ladders for, so there are warning stickers, OSHA training, etc. to try to keep people safe, and then we accept that accidents happen.
The debate about guns is whether we need them, or whether they're beneficial enough to outweigh their harm. And of course in this country the 2nd Amendment has to be taken into consideration as well.
