I don't "WANT companies to have First Amendment rights" I'd like to have companies without such things, such that MY RIGHTS EQUAL SOME SOCIOPATHIC CEO'S RIGHTS. As it sits at present, they actually have more rights than I do, and don't even have to conform to the same laws as I do, so my protections aren't even equal.
I might want it, if I were a FASCIST, but I'm not. What are you, Mr. Masnick, Fascist or American?
I disagree. Government fails when it does exactly opposite its responsibility to serve and protect its citizens. When it becomes so busy with trying to make the average citizen pay money to those in power that it cannot serve and protect, it seems inevitable that it will become overbearing and criminalize everyone to extract that money in some way shape or form. America went down the tubes when it allowed congress to change the law to keep income tax after the end of WWI.
Here in the USA, too.
I wonder how much, rather.
Now, I'm scared. I write to congress all the time, which is not what I'd actually call writing to good people...
What? Do you think that with all the surveillance that he had being done, that he'd start a business for banks without sufficient coercion material? Get real. He's gonna make his own "bank," so to speak. You don't really think the banks would pay him his asking price of $1 Million/month for security purposes do you? Hell, they send sensitive information over the wire unencrypted, they don't need no shteenking security.
I don't know, there's a lot of stupid happening in Congress, and they scare the shi* out of me.
So, you're saying we need to talk to the people we are talking to, to know that we aren't talking to people we shouldn't be talking to?
We supported these fascists during WWII? No wonder we're suffering fascism now.
No. Texas is the old Texas. Florida was the new Texass, remember when Fla got the bad rep, Bush whose pappy was from Texas was governor. The same Bush running for the Pres. primaries, BTW.
That's conservatives for you.
You're short sighted, then. These kids now have a record for something even you might have done as a kid, "you show me your's and I'll show you mine." Don't be so naive or worse glib about kids having their lives ruined by idiots who forgot what it was to be a kid.
I wonder how he's asking in damages, when he wins/loses, and how much the state will have to pay?
If (as is allowed) someone changed the Wikipedia page referenced, then I would think that the brief would then be a lie. Not that it isn't already...
