Give it a few more years and information technology will have cops that abuse their power shot and killed. People do not like those in power over them abusing that power. The internet brings not only information to light but groups together.
When you have a group of people together the fear of a powerful individual can go away.
An officer who depends on the fear of an individual protecting him from retaliation while abusing his power will go away.
There will be a rash of cop killings before they figure this out and shut down the internet or behave.
I mostly agree with you.
"Linking to anything anytime should be perfectly legal."
May be stretching it a bit far.
Could I for example link to child pornography on an Elmo fan club website?
While I believe in freedom and linking...Linking to anything anytime is not good.
Hopefully not. Steve Jobs is horribly insufferable.
Apple Fanboys who hang on Jobs ever word are as well.
Steve Jobs listening intently to what Steve Jobs has to say would create a horrible monster from which we will never be saved.
I am actually a systems manager at a cab company in a metropolitan area. I have seen boom bust. It dose not affect the good drivers much. They have personals that use them exclusively. As much as possible. The regulations are pathetic. Every car has to get permitted every year. It fails if the A/C is not cold enough, the car has scratches or dents, the tint on the windows is anything other than PERFECT (we just remove it), the outside of the cab is dirty, or any of a slew of other minor things. Do they check the driveability of the vehicle, weather or not airbags are installed, if the brakes are in good condition or if the vehicle even can do more than start and idle? No. They limit competition and impose rules because they are government. If they are not comming up with a new rule or regulation then they are seen to be doing nothing.
It is if they can get it.
It is not a problem if I want to sell my stuff for what I think it is worth. If I price it to high people will not buy it. Why the fuck do you care how much entity A wants to charge entity B for it services. 2 PRIVATE companies negotiating. It is a fucking crime that congress would step in either way here.
Look at all the "News" organizations. Or do you believe that those that slant the way you agree with are not slanted?
I have always disliked the stupid. Though those that point out how stupid people are on one side of the fence while doing the exact thing on the other side are held in a special place. You are an idiot.
Fuck it. Mike Masnick. I am letting you know here and now that I will be filling suit in Federal Court this afternoon suing you for violating my civil rights. By constantly pounding my brain with proof that this entire world without exception is run by powerful, rich fucking assholes looking to make me unhappy in every way possible you sir have made my right to "the pursuit of happiness" impossible. Since you are responsible for me no longer being able to pursue happiness because with this information I know it to be impossible I hold you and Al Gore (The Inventor of the Internet) responsible for my damages. In the amount of 14.7 billion dollars US.
If you agree to settle now I will agree to a $500.00 paypal transfer to me within 45 days.
