Just remember kids, horrible things could happen from these attacks... And they're more concerned with who gets top billing in the story than stopping the horrible things.
All of them are unsuited & unfit for this work. They are all extensions of bloated bureaucracy who think if they waste more of your money paying another corporations who promises the moon but delivers temps who spend their day surfing porn sites.
They are more concerned with the funding than the actual problems. Grabbing up more headlines for sham operations while trying to cover up their giant failures to see the real plots.
We are the corporate states of america. Of the corporations, by the corporations, for the corporations.
Our leaders can't pay attention to the last 499 times the corporations lied to them, and tell us all about how the free market will save us and make it all better... and like idiots we keep electing the same morons over and over.
If only there was I dunno some sort of law that forced companies to bear the costs of their security failures.
Far to often we see companies gleefully suing people who dare to politely point out flaws rather than fix them. Sending researchers the bill for having to fix the bug they discovered. Sending the DoJ on a rampage to threaten to put them in jail for crimes against humanity. Issuing press releases blaming the researchers for the bug.
This is 'we just slapped our brand on something & did none of the work' and jacked the price up several magnitudes because our brand name is worth it. They got profits, we got a growing network of shit that will be used to cripple the entire internet. Perhaps its time to stop pretending corporations will do anything about this on their own & we start punishing them for taking the path of most profits.
We don't have enough information about these 'Quakers' so we won't admit we have them on a secret list so they won't lie to us about being 'Quakers'. We are so stupid we trust what they tell us when we think they are terrorists, because when you pledge to be a terrorist you also pledge to always tell the truth....
We should make politicians declare themselves as terrorists in that case.
This is more of the stupid brain dead pandering that we need to collect more so we don't miss anything, and we are far more lost in the haystack than we were before.
Perhaps if we stopped tying bonuses to 'results' they would stop inventing them and turn down the firehose of data so they could see actual terrorists and not just mentally challenged people they conned into saying they love ISIS so they could get good coverage.
The secret courts & secret laws & secret interpretations are poison destroying the country. We need to end them, and stop pretending that as long as we don't admit it we are just as bad as those we are pursuing we're still the good guys. Some dictators would LOVE to have people snatched from other countries and placed in black sites everyone can disavow if people find out about the torture there.
Perhaps the question we need to ask Congress is when did they decide we should cross those lines & lie about it. If you are proud of what you are doing, why hide it?
Who said anything about it? It would be me, because I can be quite an asshole.
I suggest reading the replies in threaded mode, it makes it much easier to follow.
Some douche decided Mike was the asshole for reporting on Mr. Woods unhinged behavior. Gloating when someone dies is bad form & trying to cast Mr. Woods as the poor target of evil vendettas shows signs of what to my untrained eye might be suggestive of cocaine abuse.
Inventing an inflatable James Woods blow up doll in my imagination was an entertaining picture taking on the the types of interviews for survivors of abuse asked to show where the bad man touched them.
While they debate it doesn't exist, just imagine one impotent poster having Stockholm Syndrome flailing away trying to protect the image of James Woods 'defending' himself from a comment on the same level Mr. Woods levels at people regularly.
The lawsuit won't get Mr. Woods anything except legal bills. The evil person who defamed him passed away, there is no money, and Mr. Woods celebrating the death confirms that perhaps he isn't the most balanced person.
Its a pity that bringing a merit-less case doesn't result in a criminal charge that would harm her ability to move up in office to gain the power to screw over even more people because she needs a soundbite.
Would be nice to see the voters asking why they are going to have to foot the bill for her publicity stunt, and remember that when its time to hit the ballot box. She screwed the state out of what will most likely be a few million for good press & a pay raise... imagine the sort of shit she'll pull to get another 'donation' to her cause.
