    Hollywood

    "WE DECLARE that all values of profit be based on the ideal that Every ONE person has and will view our media. Everything else is considered LOSS."

    Im REALLY waiting for this to be Published someplace..Where people can see it..

    Can anyone, any company Show a persistent, consistent, Value based IDEAL of what they will EARN on a product??
    CAN ANY OF THEM??

    If I say that the VALUE of my product is equal to every living being USING my product and base that on profit/ loss...WOW, what a TAX dodge..

    TRADE AGREEMENT??

    What TRADE agreement?

    This seems more a recommendation of Laws/Rules/regulations, BEFORE we will do anything Bill..

    It would be interesting to compare, WHO/WHAT corps OWN what around the world,
    With what Countries have been FIGHTING these corps for years, with OLD laws they dont wish to change..

    MOST of this, is the idea that a Maker makes Music, a CORP takes all responsibility from the maker, gives back LITTLE compared to its profits, and when the maker DIES, they STILL OWN IT...
    Unless an ARTIST READS/Understands the contracts HE SIGNS..HE has few if any rights.
    If he DOES NOT, stipulate that UPON HIS DEATH, ALL RIGHTS GOTO HIS FAMILY...The family WONT get anything..

    REALLY suggest everyone look up the PAST history of Movie/Music contracts BEFORE the 60's...Its @#$@# SCARY..

    oK TECH TIME

    So..
    SOMEHOW, you figure a way to STOP them
    You find a way that Any terrorist, or Soon to be terrorist, can not install and run anything that can use the internet..
    Cyber cafe, any laptop(or friends/family laptop), Cellphone(friends/families Cellphone), Tablets, and any other way they can FIND..
    So, you are going to SHUT DOWN whole nations that have Terrorists..(thats one way, and I dont know many others that WORK)

    Oh!! Perchance...is there a Program that would Link to LOCAL hardware, and send messages, directly to devices..
    Phone1-to Phone 2..Phone 2 to phone 3...Phone 3, to Tablet 4..
    Could someone setup THERE OWN wireless setup on a computer, and send Messages to ONLY certain phones and devices as they travel Near the computer..
    Could all of this be used WHILE people are going to work and school and ANY public event..and a Traveler, by Train/plane or Auto, could get this data sent to other locations VERY easily..

    Could any of this be encoded??

    Could a SMALL hack, be inserted into peoples devices, phones, computers that would allow this in the Background on ANY DEVICE...

    Yes, Yes, yes , yes...

    So with all of this..all you end up doing is SLOWING things down, a small amount..And you have FORCED the terrorists to become MORE knowledgeable..

    This is funny..
    as Long ago, police would monitor NEWSPAPERS for illicit activities..Prostitutes..
    Then we had the internet, and Police and newspaper became concerned..and complained..
    WHY???
    They had a new resource and could SEE what was happening and WHERE..
    If you STOPPED them using the paper or the NET, HOW would you monitor it?

    WHY force things UNDER GROUND...when you can sit on a computer and WATCH things happen, and Locate people...

    SHAME

    Lets ask why...
    RICH PEOPLE HAVE?? GARAGES..
    Below Middle CLASS, the odds are you sit your car outside..

    bUT WHAT DOES THIS really DO??

    Scanning Poor people isnt worth much, TRY a few RICH people..

    HOW about FAIR scanning..
    WONDER the MALLS..
    WONDER corp buildings..
    wONDER ALL the parking areas...THAT would be fair..

    HATE TO SAY IT..

    What happened to:

    TRUTH, JUSTICE, and the AMERICAN WAY?

    redefined?

    Re: Re: Protectionism

    Just think to the TAX breaks they wouldnt get from imaginary numbers...

    PArt of HULU since the start..

    This is as bad as Netflix..
    It WAS Good, then BAD, then Good, then WORSE...
    They got rid of FORUMS, a few years back..They got tired of the complaints..

    But WHO is behind HULU??
    HOW many Corps have contracts and restrictions, and BS over content..And they CHANGE every time we turn around..

    If HULU is independent, they could of Done better..and KICKED the CORPS OUT, until they figured out the NEW SYSTEM..
    IF they are PART of the CORP system, they are idiots..

    Protectionism

    In a PERFECT world of Corporate mentality..
    IF everything was protected and NOTHING was lost..
    What would they complain about?
    They WOULD find something..Like ALL SOUND is Copy written, as its ALL been recorded before, or will be in the future..
    Every Video/audio recording is Copy protected, BY THEM, including all Policing Agency's..
    Everyone has to PAY to get it back or to USE IT..

    Got a Family Photo..we CP that..
    God, its getting stupid down here, Take me away..

    Re: Re: hAND IN HAND

    tHERE IS kinda BACKDOOR IN THIS SYSTEM..

    Its that you can BUILD anything personally...
    The problem comes in 2 forms..
    1. Is a CHIP protected if you create something with it?
    2/ Do you think buying a few chips at RETAIL is cheap?

    ITS getting Bad enough...
    that if you create something with 1 format, and the DESIGN/SHAPE/FUNCTION/.. was copy written, Under another format..
    Lets say Pudding..
    You make it by Beating it with a spoon..but the CP has it beaten by a Mechanical beater.. YOU will be Sued..by the Corp, to disprove the allegation..and then it will be found that Either method is CP..

    hAND IN HAND

    This has to go in the same problem with recent Trade agreements..
    The BIGGEST problem here is OTHER countries agreeing to it.
    Its not a Company suing a company, and debating WHO had the idea first. Its Corps suing States, and countries..

    Then comes the idea of a small country TRYING to defend itself, over something that created Long ago, and a Company suing them because they want it/Think they created it.

    Then the Idea that you created something Long ago, then updated the design over time, because of New tech that made things easier...from resisters to chips.

    How much money would you save on a CAR, if all the CP parts were in the public domain? HOw much would you save on cellphones if the 300 CP Dropped???(yes there are over 300 Copy right claims on Every cellphone..from Chips to Design to Programming...)

    For truth Justice and the AMERICAN way

    Love the old TV shows and some of the Things from the past..
    They past a law that stated the Only reason for a Corp, was to make money for itself. It has no responsibility for Anything/anyone else, except itself.

    Then we watch movies that ALMOST always have a nice ending, and cartoons that have little REALITY, as GI Joe and Cobra NEVER DIED...

    The Good GUY always wins...the Good guy always gets the GIRL...

    And the Scariest thing out there, in Sci-fi...Would be if we could READ each other minds.
    Truth and Justice...And knowing EVERYTHING a person has Done/DID and if they are TRYING to confuse/bother/Lie/steal...

    then what is the AMERICAN way, vs the CORP way..

    Re: grant their wish?

    would love TO,....
    aDVERTISING/WORD OF MOUTH AND ALL OTHER KNOWLEDGE, means someone said something..

    NO news is good news, isnt correct if you need People to goto an event..
    I can see it NOW, all Airlines do NOT increase Flights to RIO..because they didnt HEAR about it..and Couldnt POST special sales and TIMES for it..because OLYMPICS is CP..

  • Aug 2nd, 2016 @ 10:34am

    Warning: do not read the conditions to be an olympian..

    ANYONE know the Jim Thorpe story?
    Go watch of read it, you will find it on the net..

    UNTIL RECENT..
    You could NOT be a professional ANYTHING, to be an Olympian..
    You could not Gain any monies from a corp..

    In the USA, the Gov. Never backed an olympian..

    The rules to be in the olympics are STRANGE and STUPID..

    And JUST because:
    WHO can Justify the CR of a word created over 1000 years ago??

  • Aug 1st, 2016 @ 1:46pm

    AND???

    What do these 2 KNOW??
    1 has been in politics since NIXON..
    2. Is a corp stooge..that isnt very good at it.

    NEITHER has been poor enough to even NEED to buy their own food.

    Re: Re: ANYONE HERE?

    I really do understand...
    99.999% of it all comes down to MONEY and Corruption.

    It wouldnt matter WHAT computer we used, or software..
    If you gave me ENOUGH money and paid the TAX for me...
    It wouldnt be a problem.

    The one thing I can say, is that the SIMPLER it is, the EASIER it is to monitor...
    DONT complicate it..

    Then when the Election is done, the Programming is looked at by both sides, and verified..Then the count is done..

    I would also PRINT a form for the voter, that could be taken IN' anytime and Checked with the Finished vote.

    The 1 REAL problem is we cant make it with NO HUMAN hands touching it.. There are to many places to Augment things..

  • Jul 29th, 2016 @ 1:36pm

    ANYONE HERE?

    Anyone here, with abit of hardware knowledge from the last 30 years??
    And abit of programming language, in HTML, GW basic, or any of the 20 Older languages USED?

    TELL me how easy it would be to LOCK down a system..
    Hardware and software..

    Couldnt we just use an OLD 385/486(without all the current hardware spec).. And set it up REAL basic and simple..
    Lock down all the ports.
    NO ACKNOWLEDGED Ports in OS software..
    Master KEYLOCK on the case that will interrupt the computer and SHUT IT DOWN from any inputs..

    There REALLY is bad news here, in that there are TO MANY PEOPLE willing to PAY to get a backdoor into these machines...

    Re: Re: aNYONE, pLEASE?

    tHE reality IS Going to hit them HARD..
    They are selling out the country. soon they will NOT have ajob.
    Shadowrun, here we come..

    Many States have sold out, by declaring that SOME corps arent TAXED..
    its Stupid.

  • Jul 27th, 2016 @ 1:46pm

    aNYONE, pLEASE?

    I have a BIG question about TPP and All the rest of the TRADE AGREEMENTS..

    What is in it for THOSE voting for it??
    Really..What are they going to get for making it so that WE LOOSE our rights to Personal protections from Shoddy corp mentality?

    They have already CUT quality back to the point you will need to RE-Purchase most products and devices every 5-10 years...and for many smaller devices, EVERY YEAR...

    Some times I feel like a RICH person, being able/NEEDING a new car every 5 years..Just get the Old one paid off and TIME for a new car.

    What has happened to the IDEA of Quality. We are paying like MOST of this stuff is WORTH SOMETHING.

    Re: dEAR cHINA

    Can I suggest..
    That this is a GREAT idea..
    because EVERY computer will get a WIPE and re0install every month..or less..
    Do you think ANY hiddenillegal data will be found? NOPE..

  • Jul 22nd, 2016 @ 10:47am

    dEAR cHINA
