Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: 'Corruption, noun: What happens in other countries'
That is a valid response in a lot of cases but maybe you are seeing the "small government" dogwhistle that isn't there. (I am not necessarily certain myself.) Even though i don't also agree that size is what matters most wrt corruption. Less police, healthcare, or Social Security isn't going to un-wreck anything.
As opposed to the rabid dogs who come out to make unrelated comments about "our team" which are incorrect, pointless, and irrelevant? It is to laugh.
Also pretty sure most people who comment here who lean toward the progressive or Democrat side are not actual fans of the Democratic party nor their politicians in actual practice. Conservative and Republican-leaning people here do not necessarily hew to the party, either. So you can go burn that strawman elsewhere.
You are the one who dragged partisan bs into this. Emanuel didn't have to learn it from anyone. They all do it, and have for ages. But it seems the ones who like to whine the loudest and most often about partisan politics are always the first to kick that dead horse it into the discussion.
So? That is more an excuse for, "this is how we like it as well". Most unions have zero bearing on the sorts of things police unions do. They are not normal unions. They are just the private arm of the police department. Actually, they are even bigger than that. We don't have a national police force, except in the private, union sense of it. (Although DAPL sort of shows how you can get a semi-national / paramilitary / militia of cops doing the Al-Qaeda vacation-warrior thing for fun and profit.)
So... devoid of any actual evidentiary claims or discovery requests. Good filing. I guess you can do that.
Does he know that ads can be targeted to the content of the page being viewed, and have crap-all to do with a profile? Is the State of Mississippi aware of ad and script blockers? Is Hood aware that one can opt out of targeted ads and tracking with any Google account?
I am not under any illusions about being tracked and harvested by Google or anyone else, and I am not going to be the first person in line to nominate teh Goog for sainthood. But i think providing the apps, just as MS provides free software education programs and discounted student editions of software, is plenty enough market capture and they don't need to collect data or target ads here.
And yes we could all do with better privacy policies and TOS across the board. So why don't you do something about that, asshole. (Because that isn't really the problem, is it?)
See, your problem is that you seem to assume everyone here takes Wheeler as some sort of god of net neutrality. He's pretty good, especially considering where he came from. He did some good things. Didn't push enough for other things. But then, he is also not god off the FCC with unlimited power to set rules as he sees them. Certainly not given others in the FCC.
So you are shouting at nothing. No one "bought into" Wheeler. He was a good improvement over things that have been before, but i have seen no one here having some grand illusions about him.
Maybe that's why your "argument" just rolls past everyone.
isp routers are frequently gateways with multiple functions including that of a "modem" hardware component to connect to their network if Ethernet isn't the incoming cable. some "routers"* can do it too.
most of these are far more than routers, although that became the generic term for boxes with a varying set of functions all bundled together with the router aspect.
Maybe one needs two, maybe one doesn't. It depends.
Or the atmosphere, just for carrying sound waves. And the countries the terrorists are from, or live in, or acted in (oops). And any phone company, anyone with a public WAP that may have been used, ISP's, and the terrorists' parents. And anyone who ever may have walked past one without stopping them ahead of time.
Seriously the stupidest thing about this is that they want to go after public spaces on the net where everyone else can see what they are doing, even if they (or the platform) can't tell it is part of an evil plot up front. And they don't seem to want to litigate against any medium where they can't see the presence of the criminals who did the attack (or whatever). Not that they should, but there is something deeply infantile about the unrecognized "distinction" these people are drawing here*.
*Some are. I am sure plenty get swept into it via rhetoric and emotional manipulation as well. Still i don't know how anyone can see it as a sensible idea.
That isn't Tim fat-shaming, it's Trump. He's suggesting that the people Trump is so derisive towards (slurs included) would clearly be better for the job. Which, incidentally, is noted in the statement via the word "referenced". _"someone sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds."_ It had nothing to do with anyone being assholes, and everything to do with the hack being done by any number of other actors besides Russians.
In any other cases, they would keep quiet, find suspicious ads on these sites, take reports, and conduct investigations. Prosecutors and LEOs would decline to say how they originally discovered suspects because it would harmfully reveal investigative techniques.
But theater is more important, and there is more theater on the front end here.
