    Re: Re: I never heard of him before now

    via duckduckgo wikipedia entry:

    DuckDuckGo emphasizes getting information from the best sources rather than the most sources, generating its search results from key crowdsourced sites such as Wikipedia and from partnerships with other search engines like Yandex, Yahoo!, Bing, and Yummly.[5][6]

    DuckDuckGo is built primarily upon search APIs from various vendors. Because of this, TechCrunch characterized the service as a "hybrid" search engine.[20][21] At the same time, it produces its own content pages, and thus is similar to Mahalo, Kosmix and SearchMe.[22]

    Re: Let's see just how that would play out

    "And it wouldn't just be an individual asserting rights, it would be a bunch of greedy corporations."

    yep, factually INEVITABLE...
    here's why (real simple):
    korporations are immortal, immoral, legal fictions with -relative to the 99%- infinite resources; people are comparatively short-lived, and needing money *now*, not over hundreds+ of years...

    sod off...

    once more with feeling:
    'illegal' \= 'immoral'

    *ESPECIALLY* in these not-so-velvet-police-state times, when their is a two-tiered (in)justice system, where laws are for the little people...

    glad to have outed another authoritarian who can't see beyond what Big Daddy tells them to see...

    Re: Prove you are healthy

    thank you seedeevee, i am afraid the point went right past most, which is what i signed on to say...

    asking someone -much less a kid- to 'prove' they are harmed by some sort of EM by 'feeling' it is absurd...

    what next, we ask the victims of hiroshima/nagasaki to 'prove' they had radiation sickness by telling us how it 'felt' as the radiation coursed through them ? do some double-blind tests to see if they could 'prove' when they were or were not exposed to alpha waves ?
    wtf ?

    how about victims of carbon monoxide poisoning, what a bunch of fakers; didn't they *KNOW* they were being suffocated ?
    *snort*

    however, i can also simultaneously hold in my mind the concept of too many crunchy tofu eaters who get their knickers in a twist about *ANYTHING* technological...

    on the other paw, i still have an open mind of the unknown and long-term effects of various EM that we simply do NOT know with any degree of safe certainty; ESPECIALLY if we are dependent upon INDUSTRY-sponsored 'research' on these subjects...

    but this bullshit: if you didn't 'feel' it, it didn't happen crap, is one steaming pile...
    *sheesh*

    Re: Re: "What are you going to do, stop buying? Don't make us laugh."

    perhaps you should review the difference between 'illegal' and 'immoral'...
    i know it isn't a popular pasttime amongst all the neo-libtard and neo-conned elites, but i believe morality might make a comeback...
    it will take a lot of rope, though...

    Re:

    oddly enough, the ONLY union NOT to be (generally) excoriated by reich wing, statist, and authoritarian blowhards who ordinarily insist all unions are eee-vil...
    huh, kind of interesting, in a blatantly hypocritical kind of way...
    again, in general, unions were (are) a necessary counterbalance to korporate power, but they have essentially sold out, been bought out, or co-opted by korporate power... also, they are pretty much dependent upon a significant portion of the working population be organized/unionized, or they lose their 'collective' bargaining power... (not to mention cross-industry strikes where unions can support each other can't happen when such a small percentage is unionized...)
    and the monty burns of the world lave their hands with glee: 'the plan is working perfectly ! !! bwa ha ha ha ha haaaa'...
    stupid sheeple...

    Re: Re: Re: There is a problem here

    maybe not, but i bet someone in their neighborhood does...

    and if The They (tm) pay you $25 for your vote (which, well, why the fuck not sell it ? its essentially useless and valueless anyway), then you pay your neighbor $5 to 'shop in your 'correct' vote...
    *although*, realistically, if you *are* selling your vote, prob because you (semi-rightfully) don't think it means fuckall, so why not just vote *this* Korporate Money Party pig in, rather than the *other* Korporate Money Party pig...
    who cares about rich folks internecine warfare of who gets to rip us off the most, THEY BOTH WILL; at least you get $25 out of their cheating...

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: THE government hasn't been behaving as OUR government for decades.

    "To be fair, I hypothesize that our recent rash of rampage killers has to do with people seeing society falling apart and feel powerless to do anything about it (and in the case of Dylann Roof, blaming and going after his preferred scapegoat). This might be symptomatic of the kind of general discontent that fuels revolution."

    *BINGO*
    we have a winner ! ! !

    Re: Re: I think it's more complex than that.

    oh kee-rist on a crutch...
    i got an idea, EVERYONE must take nudies of themselves and post them on their mandatory farcebook page and then no one will have anything on anyone and everyone will be equally humiliated...
    there, will that *finally* settle this silly shit ? ? ?

    oh, and to the poster kindly re-defining sexual assault as viewing a nudie of someone, please take a long walk off a short pier, as we used to say...

    i am first in line when it comes to NOT wanting nude pix of myself for the world to point at, *tsk*tsk*, and -worst of all- make judgments on my pitiful meatbag of a body... BUT, is the world seeing my 'junk' *really* going to be so humiliating that i simply can't go on ? ? ?

    does EVERYTHING have to be so melodramatic and life-threatening ? ? ? we have such boring lives we have to gin up bullshit drama to make it seem 'exciting', and that our lives have some significance ? ? ?

    people really need more chores to do, rather than hang around on the inertnet tubes all day scouting for outrage eruptions...

    Re: Re:

    to anon cow at 312:

    au contraire, mon frere, these horrible exemplars are the best *BECAUSE* our fundamental (and as other posters point out, INHERENT) rights are given primacy over the appearance (or actual) 'guilt' of the perps...
    the least sympathetic, 'most guilty' perps make the best case law/precedent, *BECAUSE* any situation to follow which falls short of that, *now* is golden...
    makes it difficult for future persecutors to move the goalposts...
    besides, 'our' (sic) system *used* to be about 'better 9 guilty men go free, than one innocent man is tried and convicted unjustly'...
    now, we're *all* guilty of something: only a matter of if (when?) sauron turns his evil eye your way, and you are dead hobbit-meat...

    Re: Re: Re:

    well, that's the nub, isn't it ? there *is* (essentially) no 'fair arbitration'; it is a process for the benefit of korporate people, not real (you know, useless) people...

    given it is a system TOTALLY dominated by the korporations, 'arbitrators' are self-selected to be korporate suckups, otherwise they don't get called to 'arbitrate' next time...

    again, a theoretical 'fair' arbitration system may be possible, but not under the current regime dominated and controlled by korporations...

    Re: Re: The Constitution does not bestow rights

    how the declaration of independence and constitution are worded, are that we are imbued with ALL RIGHTS we freaking want, NOT explicitly the ones enumerated...

    there was a big debate among the founding old property-owning white men that IF we explicitly enumerated *SOME* of the rights we do have that we wanted to ensure were not traduced, that would 'imply' that we were limited to those rights: NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH...

    *however*, the crowd that wanted to list a number of bedrock rights explicitly eventually got a sop in the bill of rights... think of them as the bare minimum, with all other rights not stated...
    again, BOTH sides were VERY CLEAR that ALL OTHER RIGHTS were ours as well, just not specified because that would be an endless tail-chasing game...

  • May 7th, 2015 @ 10:58pm

    of *course* there is an inherent political 'statement'...

    ...might not have been the tagger's intention, know nothing about the guy/gal/droid; but it is almost certainly a 'political' statement in regards to they hit up a highly visible target sponsored by a company obsessed with and perpetrating a superficial, looks-ist kultur, and the spokesdroid being a celebutard manufactured by the machine to fill the needs of disposable, is only icing on the cake of in-your-face 'desecration'...
    (is korporate puffery such protected fee speech that it is a desecration to deface it ? ...to refute it ? ...to mock it ? ? ? )
    the whole '...with a drone' bullshit is the new '...on the internet' escape-from-rational-thinking clause...

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re:

    one reason our unknown pro will never reveal himself (almost certainly a male of the species): then *his* (his mummy's or daddy's ?) work will be put under the microscope, and we'll see how that plays out...
    *as if* *ANYONE* is 'creating' everything new from whole cloth, and lives in total isolation from any/all other cultural musical influences...
    please, IF you want your 'art' to be 100% uncopyable, just keep it in your file cabinet and it will be pristine FOR-EVAH ! ! !

    whoa, whoa, whoa...

    i do not have time to follow 100% of techdirtia's articles, but i have certainly read about all the law agencies resisting body cams and giving bogus excuses, but didn't know someplace had actually implemented a 'redaction' policy (whatever that entails)...
    and, further, not understanding the praise for a former activist joining the dark side to help obscure the dark side's evil deeds in said redaction ? ? ?
    i got an 'A' and a 'Z', but i missed all the steps in between to explain how we got there...
    are we praising professional executioners, now ?
    do we admire the efficient concentration kamp guards, now ?
    'yes, its censorship, but its a -you know- double-plus *good* censorship; thank dog we have efficient censors on our side !! '
    *snicker*
    is this another shadow of democracy we thank Empire for allowing us to have, like free speech pens ? ? ?
    *snort*
