Charged: Being mlaicious. And on-line! On-line i tells yeh!
What a hoot.
Hey, if this works, Obama could become the richest man on the planet by suing about half of the US (and then some) for 8+ years of utter bullshit, much of which people do claim as fact. (Ignoring mostly, you know, the actual bullshit Obama pulls, for whatever reasons.)
Free as in beer is not the same as free as in liberty. Your claim is ridiculous. And anyone re-streaming and inserting their own commercials would quickly be noticed if they could remotely have an effect on the market.
So, are you going to stop people from peeing or going to the fridge or starting another load of laundry during commercials yet? Or what?
Aside from the whole standing issue itself being bullshit, stretched far beyond any appropriate application, this is bullshit. The contortions these minds must undertake in pursuit of executing their office are patently absurd. The laws and legal precedents are absurd. The interpretation of law and precedent is absurd. The disregard for law, the secret laws and rule, the creative (and also sometimes secret) legal opinions on what the law allows is absurd.
And that we can just keep pushing further into the realm of the absurd is absurd. It was long ago, but somehow we manage to keep expanding this realm.
It may be an overreaction, but not entirely. And it is very much because of transparency and control. These things should be explained so people can actually make an informed choice (or reaction).
Here is part of the problem: That tone-deaf language they used? That's what every damn app in an app store sounds like. We may collect data type x. "For what?," you may damn well ask. But most of the time, no one is asking, not at this volume displayed over Spotify. And frequently, there is not other website or anywhere to click through to find out what app dev and service is really using that data for. And then there are those with some explanation, but contain clauses like, "but not limited to". Well fuck you very much.
And part of the problem behind that is consumers either did not care for a long time, or let these things stand unchallenged, or both. Because very few companies or devs are going to go out of their way to explain, even if they are being good stewards of your personal data. And the rest, well, they'll vacuum and monetize every bit of data they can get, and don't want you to know exactly what they take or how they might use it.
Whether it's Fox News's ugly fight with Dish, DirecTV's feud with The Weather Channel, or the Cablevision - News Corporation fight that blacked out the World Series a few years back
All familiar, but are there any examples of, well, something that's a loss? Or is it exactly these sorts of outfits that most like to pull the heavy-handed contract negotiations? Because hey, do we really need to intervene in the suicides of these sorts of psychopathic narcissists?
Because when you slur someone in attempt to silence them, but someone "on the left" (or some subset thereof) tells you why what you say is fucked up, that's harming your free speech. Hence, the "PC Police" stifle free speech. Counter-speech from some other group, when you suddenly realize you are in their space and you are the minority, is apparently an attack on free speech, especially when you are used to a lot of "amen" from the groups you are more aligned with.
Did the ppl who make ads for outfits like Dragon Naturally Speaking do this promo?
But really, this sort of cheap scan tech would be great for a million things. Especially if it will do things like accurate real measurements and stuff. Hook it up with some consumer home architect type applications or whatever. (And i'm sure, with plenty of disruptively negative consequences, too. Which, I'm also sure, will induce some moral panic eventually. Interesting times. And just imagine the consequences to the wider world of crazy intellectual property claims.)
any requirement for officers to activate their BWC’s will place them in danger by forcing them to manage more tasks than they are accustomed to undertaking during dynamic enforcement encounters, and causing them to hesitate while activating their BWCs.
They had this problem with clicking or un-capping pens, too, which is why they all now use crayons when they aren't too distracted to take notes or write citations.
I want to know what is in the TPP that some countries would actually want that they would accept all the other junk if they are aren't on board with being ridiculous about "IP" law and enshrining corporations as the ultimate object of worship.
