    my two centavos...

    better half is an heroic teacher shoveling sand against the tide with a teaspoon...
    in a poor school w lots of minorities; the teachers are CONSTANTLY put in a damned if you do, damned if you dont situation : if they 'report' the kids for shitty behavior, then the principle gets upset that they are reporting too many kids, and it 'looks bad'...
    if they don't report them, they disrupt the classes such that actual teaching/learning is negligible... not to mention, admin will back down from punishing or expelling kids since they then don't get any money for them when not in school...
    compounded by the de facto 'separate AND unequal' treatment of having a 'quality' school within a school where mostly white kids get away with the same shitty behavior the black kids get jacked up for... frankly, a lot of the white kids and parents know how to 'play the game', say the right conciliatory bullshit/lies, and worm out of consequences; homies don't play that game...

    this is great...

    ...with every boneheaded, counterproductive move, the gummint makes the Dark web that much more attractive and widely used...
    pretty soon, won't have to worry about anyone doing 'bad' shit on the intertubes, cause everyone will be on the Dark web...

    heh man, i have no brief on pizzagate, but those are some SERIOUSLY weird/borderline fucking nutz paintings and sculptures...
    i have a wide latitude for weird shit, but i was a guest in a house with paintings like that, and i would exchange surprised looks with my wife, and head for the door... that is some seriously weird shit for a non-serial killer to have hanging in their homes...

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: HIPAA

    curious as to WHY you would think that because there (may or may not be) some law to prevent gummint goons accessing medical info, that they will weally, weally, we double-dog pwomise not to do so...
    um, what turnip wagon did you just jump off of, hayseed ? ? ?
    i mean you SERIOUSLY think that will stop them from doing so ? ? ? if so, you simply don't have a clue of how the world works...
    AND you run some sort of clinic ? ? ? why is that not very comforting to me to realize a pollyanna is in charge of our med info....

    Re:

    actually, since we proles are ALL painted with the same broadbrush, why shouldn't piggies get the same treatment ? ? ?
    besides, if the 1-10% of 'good' piggies WOULD DO THEIR FUCKING JOBS and root out the 90-99% bad piggies, then we wouldn't have these issues, would we ? ? ?
    yeah, that is going to happen...

    well, day-am...

    ...i needs me a tee shirt of that, now...
    Techdirtia ? you on that ? ? ?

    tiresome to refute the paramilitary pigs who squeal when even a sidelong glance goes their way...
    newsflash to the capo dei capi: you are on the wrong side of logic, the wrong side of morality, and the wrong side of his story; that is why you have a difficult time recruiting sociopaths...
    hardly news to bitch das piggies are 'protecting and serving' the interests of the 1%, not the 99%; but it has become plainer now the velvet glove has come off the iron fist of Empire...
    the abuse has escalated such that you can't even count on your white privilege to protect you from police riots... when even pwecious white slaves of Empire are getting jacked up, *now* police abuse is a thing...

    1. seriously, thank you for your observations/contribution...

    been bitching about voting systems...

    ...for decades:
    paper ballots
    hand counted
    locally reported

    also, ranked choice voting will eventually -if not immediately- overturn the rethug/dem'rat duopoly of the one Korporate Money Party...
    it is not that open source s/w and h/w could not be used to design a secure, AUDITABLE, and transparent computer-based voting system, it is just that under the current incarnation of Empire, that will NOT HAPPEN...
    of course, there are a ton of ancillary issues to address beyond the actual vote mechanism, but unless that is secured, all the rest is meaningless...

    (untitled comment)

    as a sidebar, was watvhing some youtube clips on funny/weird tee shirt text, and it had a LOT of asians who sported ALL kinds of nasty stuff beyond mere 'fucks' and 'shits', stuff like a list of english derogatory slang for various ethnic/'racial' groups (spic, kike, nigger, etc), and a number of weird malapropisms which made no sense...
    wonder how many who wore those, understood what the text meant... a LOT were on very young kids, too...
    i presume these are cheap/free tee shirts and that they have no idea what the text means...
    wonder how many english speakers are wearing tee shirts with chinese/etc words on them which are awful statements they dont have a clue about...

    the velvet glove...

    ...is coming off the iron fist of Empire...
    it will only ratchet to total oppression, it don't go the other way...
    power never devolves voluntarily, now what to do ? ? ?
    surely, voting for ______ will do the trick...
    surely...

  • Jan 1st, 2017 @ 8:41am

    hmmm, i wonder if...

    ...there would have been any sort of resolution to this tragic abuse of the law if it had not been reported on, shouted about, and kept current by way of the alternative/'fake' media ? ? ?
    i wonder...
    oh, wait, i forgot:
    PUUUUUUU-TINNNNNNN ! ! !

    Re:

    thank you, a non cow, exactly the point i was going to make...
    we are not only THE munitions supplier to the world (if that wssn't deplorable enough on its face), BUT we also are DIRECTLY and indirectly responsible for the terrorists who buy them...
    ffs, we are a vertically integrated terrorist organization...
    we have met the terrorists, and it is us...

    Re: Re: Qualified immunity and the ‘average moron lawyer in a hurry’ standard.

    1. to the poster above this one, the recitation of the system was fair enough, EXCEPT it merely ALLUDED to corruption, in that a perverse prosecutor/judge/officer of the kourt *might* -quixotically- act against the THEORETICAL limits of their powers in order to further their own personal agenda...
    HOWEVER, the SYSTEMIC corruption of The System is such that the 1% have infiltrated it, built and re-built it, and control it, such that the REAL, major corruption in crimes against The Constitution and the People are 'legalized' and made non-crimes for the 1%, but still retaining a bite for the 99% who dare do the same as the 1%...
    The System is SO slanted against the 99% and tilted to the 1%, that it is difficult to maintain any semblance of probative (wait a second, "probative" ? ? ? SERIOUSLY, spel czech, probative you're going to red-squiggle ? ? ? is this the stone-age version of spel czech ? ) truth-seeking, much less justice in such a system where the foregone conclusion being sought is that the 99% are scum and deserve jail, while the 1% are, um, angles (sic) and deserve, well, every-fucking-thing...
    2. as far as voters judging prosecutors for election based on number of convictions, etc... i would bet *MOST* (if not a yuuuge majority) of voters are similar to me: i could not name the local DA/prosecutors, unless by chance i happened to see a news report mentioning them the night before...
    MUCH LESS what his/her prosecution stats are, MUCH LESS compared to their 'competition'...
    for the most part, these guys get elected based on their blather and bluster, part of which almost certainly includes their stats picked and chosen to suit their agenda, but mostly seems to be from a couple high-profile cases they highlight to 'prove' how X (tough on crime/fights the illegal immigrants/stops abortion/anti-gay/hates drugs/whatever) they are compared to their wimpy adversary...
    usually it is a game of one-upmanship: "My weak opponent only wants to sentence everyone for every crime to the death penalty; what a cop-out, what a nanny-stater. No, mein gut freunds, er, my fellow 'merikans, we must not only apply the death penalty to the eee-vil perps, but their families and anyone within 3 degrees of separation to the vile monsters. They are all tainted ! ! !"
    similar to the judges, who get re-elected by 90-95% totals; and i bet 90-99% of the voters could not name ONE decision they either agreed with or disagreed with for that judge... (i know i can't) maybe one out of a hundred judge 'elections' have some controversy ginned up over some case where a teacher forced the kids to read huckleberry finn, or something (now) non-PC, and so the opposition to the judge turns it into a political football, but that is relatively rare...
    99% of the time, people are on auto-pilot and just vote to retain them... since i don't know anything about them, i assume they are all corrupt and always vote out all of The Bastards !... so far, i'm in the minority...
    3. minor point, 'only' (sigh) 3/5's of the states have the death penalty, with some not really pursuing them, if not 'boycotting' them...
    interesting how it is apparently NOT cruel and unusual to subject convicts to death by weird, ineffective drug cocktails as long as nobody complains about it being cruel and unusual...
    if not perverse...
    4. the story of justice perverted in spite of evidence to the contrary is hardly news... what IS the 'news', is that it isn't news...
    if a news story isn't reported by the korporate-kontrolled mediawhores, then it isn't really a story, now is it, citizen...
    end of story,
    end of problem...
    just where did you think this 'fake news' bullshit is heading ? ? ?
    in tech terms:
    no research, revelation, or reporting on s/w bugs allowed by 'unauthorized' sources ('unauthorized' meaning non-gummint controlled)
    therefore, as the REAL (non-fake) 'news' tells us:
    there are NO s/w bugs,
    there are NO security breaches,
    there were NO lost monies,
    there are NO problems,
    everything is fine,
    go about your daily lives,
    don't look up...

    Re: Re: Re: "No problem, but first..."

    "That would require more bandwidth and video storage than the police could afford."

    you missed the really neat part, they get US to pay for our own imprisonment, TWO TIMES OVER ! ! !

    since we have been mandated to pay extortion money to the health parasite, er, insurance industry, what is to stop gummint goons from mandating for us to pay for THEIR security systems THEY will control ? ? ?
    (or anything else they feel like soaking us for...)

    welcome to the monkey house, and here's your soma...

    Re: Re: Re: Foot Shot

    *sigh* you are irredeemably stupid...
    it is NOT that i don't get the craven and chickenshit 'bidness policies' of risk AVERSE management; it is that IT PERPETUATES those self-same, self-made BAD decisions and precedents which lead to ignorance and cowardice among both the bidnesses and citizenry who adopt these risk AVERSE positions automatically with ZERO push back and ZERO revulsion against the unust status quo, merely obeisance and the payment of legalized extortion as a cost of bidness...
    see, that is EXACTLY why i say 'fuck you': you have gone belly up and given up; obeying Machine without a thought of EVER throwing a monkey wrench in the works, or EVER questioning 'the way things are'...
    you are an authoritarian speed bump on the road of life...

    Re: well

    oh, well that *is* eee-vil...
    ...or maybe not, just that someone has the upper hand for something that should be a nothingburger, but is made an issue by a ruthless transnational korporation who has all the rights, and you have NONE, you scummy citizen...
    so, yeah, nintendo hates us all...

    Re: Poor Research or Deliberate Reference?

    so, even though someone else's use of the name/whatever is NOT -on plain reading- a traducement, they should NOT use that name OUT OF FEAR that they original company will now introduce some bogus product in *THAT* realm to bully the newcomer off of *that* spot ? ? ?
    so, you think bullying is fine and are cheering for the bullies ? ? ?
    bully for you, bullshitter...
