We need a new depeartment to manage all of these drones since each agency is obviously incapable of it. Call it the Federal Use of Drones Department or the FUD for short. They can tell us all the things they are using drones for and assure us that nothing illegal is happening and our civil liberties are protected. It will be reassuring to get such messages from the FUD.
Wait if its wrong for Google/YouTube to profit from these videos, isn't it wrong for people to watch them and thus generate the revenue in the first place? Since Digital Citizens Alliance has found all these videos, they must have watched them, thus creating ad revenue for Google. Sounds like they are partners in the furtherance of a criminal enterprise.
And charge it to all the churches who propose items like banning gay marriage or pre-marital sex or any other hate filled idea. Then we can take the money and use it to create a fund for the victims and their families of such hate...
Just to be helpful for their next list of companies to target:
Actual Porn producers: maybe, just maybe?
Bad Parents, because we've been told Daddy issues leads to the dark side of the sheets?
Google, cause how else would you find the porn that meets your interests?
Bing, cause how else would you find the porn that doesn't meet your interests?
Yahoo, cause their next move will be to get into porn?
and finally: Avenue Q: because without that song, how would anyone even know that the Internet had porn?
I was going to say the same thing based on this section:
Whoever conspires to commit or attempts to commit an offense under subsection (a) of this section shall be punished as provided for the completed offense in subsection (c) of this section.
So if I read this right, if I sit around with my friends and we talk about robbing a physical bank location (for example), we haven't committed a crime UNTIL we try to rob the bank. On the other hand if we talk about robbing a bank via its website, we have already committed a crime just by talking?
This answer from Comcast is the perfect wet dream of executives at the big ISPs: "Continue to pay us money for a service you can't use or in a degraded state so we don't need to upgrade anything ever. Well except for the gold plating on my yacht..."
Based on Senator Murphy's "logic", I propose that we dictate that all video game makers replace all instances of any weapons with fruits and vegetables (banana rocket launcher anyone?). Once the video game weapons are fruits and vegetable people will find the courage to obtain said fruits and vegetables, thus increasing their health and helping to solve America's obesity problem and boosting sales to farmers (especially the local farmers' market which is an unregulated marketplace). Look, three problems solved with one small piece of legislation!
If the NHL would improve the center ice package, they could be golden for this. The infrastructure already exists, all the NHL needs to do is remove the blackouts and make sure it works on all the devices (my main sticking point with it last season, it never worked well on blueray box). I'd love a true streaming option so I could watch NHL games while I am attending AHL games.
Many of the NHL fans have been rooting for the NHL to make Center Ice free as a way of encouraging fans to come back post lockout. Making it truly streaming could be the golden opportunity the NHL has been looking for.
The promotion of extremist rhetoric encouraging violent acts is also a common trend across the growing range of Internet-based platforms that host user-generated content. Content that might formerly have been distributed to a relatively limited audience, in person or via physical media such as compact discs (CDs) and digital video discs (DVDs), has increasingly migrated to the Internet.
They left out the part where the news media also distributed the extremist rhetoric (think all of Bin Laden's video/audio). We need to regulate the TV news and lock it down so it only tells us what those in power want to say. That shouldn't be a problem at all should it?
