    Do You Read English?

    1: This article is a fine example of how mis-regulation stifles the economy.

    2: Federal over-reach in regulating the economy for the benefit of well connected business interests is a massive concern for almost all conservatives.

    3: For whatever reason, TechDirt is nothing less than one of the most disgusting hotbets for violent, intolerant leftist rhetoric on the entire web.

    Why, I wonder, has TechDirt missed that their entire argument - essentially the deregulation of intellectual property - is a CONSERVATIVE MESSAGE that cannot gain traffic because you people HATE CONSERVATIVES?

    Re: Re: Who is Your Target Audience?

    People who are sympathetic to black issues, specifically housing and job issues in the neighborhoods they are trapped in, are tossed under the bus in the name of Black Lives Matter for not believing there is a need for further oversight of police and state law enforcement, and especially Federal oversight.

    BLM is nothing but leftist funded misdirection.

    How do you see it as moderate, seeing almost no people right of center respect it at this point? Do you honestly believe that every single conservative really wants all blacks hunted and killed by police?

    The entire message of BLM is confused and nonsensical in the face of the evidence. It serves NO purpose EXCEPT as a DNC talking point.

    Re: Re: ANTIFA: For Or Against?


    I pose opposing Nazi's and you vote to censor the comment because I ask you to also oppose ANTIFA.

    That is just hilarious.

    But that's fine. This is why your small government arguments find no traction. You antagonize anyone who sees through your attempts to expand the government to shut down even the most marginal dissent.

    Closing the border is about economics, specifically foreign exchange market abuse. Nearly five decades of completely fiat currency, inflation, and foreign interference to protect the interests, not of this nation or any other nation, but of the banking system and the symbiotic relationship it has with the Fed, is a GIGANTIC FASCIST MACHINE intended for nothing else BUT to control everyone else's work and redirect profits to the top of the pyramid.

    But keep patting yourself on the back for not even knowing what the Triffen Effect even is.

    Thous Shalt Not Lie

    Oh my God.

    Copying is not theft. The entire PURPOSE of copyright is to control communication as an end around to laws that began to emerge against overt censorship. Just my opinion? Fine. Surely it is just your opinion then that doing something yourself is the exact same thing as taking something right out of someone's HOUSE and keeping it for yourself.

    I can think of little that qualifies as a more overt and stupid lie.

    If an artist wants to make a living, they need to work daily doing that art. If it is acting, they need to act daily. If it is singing, they need to sing daily. That is what work is like. It is a daily grind. It is what we all are supposed to do. Work.

    "In the sweat of thy brow thou shalt eat bread, and thorns and thistles shall the ground bear for thee."

    Pardon my crap paraphrase skills.

    What on God's green EARTH makes you think singers and dancers and artists deserve anything better? How in the WORLD do you get to a moral argument threatening VIOLENCE against people for making COPIES for themselves rather than paying you extortionist's rates to do it for us?

    You may well just burn in hell.

    No. You don't follow. Allow me to elaborate.

    You lose me at "wanted free stuff".

    We pay for the same damned thing repeatedly. 100+ years of copyright. Our entire culture is locked behind a paywall.

    The only people wanting free stuff are the distributors, and they have gotten enough free stuff for any ten lifetimes.

    The reason entertainment is hard to make money from? IT'S CHILD'S PLAY! Playing football is not work. Singing and dancing is not work. Playing pretend in front of a camera is not work.

    I am not saying such things need to be stifled, but creating laws to threaten people's lives if they make copies of people doing such things is fascism, and acting like people are going to STOP PLAYING PRETEND IN FRONT OF A CAMERA *GASP* if we don't have copyright is just ... gaggingly pathetic.

    Either find a way to work daily singing and dancing and playing pretend, or sing and dance and play pretend as a HOBBY, like everyone else does.

    ANTIFA: For Or Against? (as Shane Roach)

    You all rail against Unite the Right. I just said I oppose them. As a veteran and a citizen and someone that tries to be a decent human being, I oppose Unite the Right. So does every single solitary conservative I know personally, and the vast majority of them that I have seen publicly.

    I oppose Nazi ideology. I oppose white nationalist ideology. I oppose militant nationalist ideology. I oppose racism.

    Does TechDirt oppose ANTIFA?

    Some clarity on this issue might well help you sell your reforms to your natural allies in the small government movement.

    Who is Your Target Audience? (as Shane Roach)

    This is classic small government conservative thought. I have talked to many, many conservatives about these issues and the thing I hear among those who are not tech saavy is that they back the big ISP's because every time they see these arguments that you present, they are attached to far left ideologues.

    Just yesterday I and anyone even remotely Pro Trump found ourselves being vilified as Nazi's on your site for questioning the reluctance of those on the left to denounce ANTIFA as I and pretty much everyone with a heart and five or six functional brain cells denounce Unite the Right and its ex Occupy leader.

    Why, pray tell, do you insist on couching your small government solutions in far left wing rhetoric all the time? Or how many times are they going to have to kick and scream red faced for the absolute RIGHT to expand the corporate state apparatus before you stop Kowtowing to them?

    If your goal is to effect change in IT regulation, you need to make some editorial decisions on what kind of a site you intend to run.

    For self preservation's sake, I may well find myself voting for anti-competitive conservatives again if I do not see some sense of repentance coming from what I want to believed were some fairly centrist leftist folk.

    I simply do not tolerate ANTIFA or BLM. Yes, I am against racism. No, racism is not as bad as it was in 1850, or even 1950. Not by a long shot.

    Time to admit good work has been done and Move On.

    Re: (as Shane Roach)


    This is the featured response. People have a right to hurt you to make you shut up, and you are not allowed to use tools at your disposal to prevent them from hurting you?

    You have no right to hurt anyone at all. And if you go to hurt people, they have a right to kill you in self defense.

    That happens to be the LAW.

    There is no reciprocal force limitation. The instant you feel your life is in danger, you have the right to resist up and including deadly force with whatever comes to hand. People do not have to "fight fair" when you threaten their lives.

    You people are evil. And the funny thing is I have seen headway made against things like the open internet because people will back the big ISP's since they find Federal regulation of the internet scary JUST BECAUSE THEY ASSOCIATE IT WITH YOU.

    So congratulations. Your entire website is one big gigantic waste of time.

    Re: (as Shane Roach)

    FYI, TechDirt apparently blacklists the usual contraction for "foreign exchange". Possibly because it is attached to a lot of nefarious email advertising.

    Since the TechDirt website censors anything to do with banking apparently, I will post this here:

    TORCH BEARING! - peaceful and legal.

    GUN TOTING! - peaceful and legal.

    Antifa activists went there to provoke violence. You blame the victims because you percieve the victims as easy targets, making you a coward and a liar.

    Closing the border has nothing to do with racism. Closing the border is necessary to get control over inequalities evolving out of foreign exchange market abuses of our fiat currency, four and a half decades now in arrears in backing their paper with anything of real value.

    You and your socialist ilk have come to use the private banks as an extension of the government through the symbiotic relationship formed at the Federal Reserve. You use fake money as a tool for central planning, and you don't like that it will have to be reformed when your access to cheap foreign slave labor is cut off.

    So you pay thugs. Like you always have.

    To destroy the innocent and enslave them to your will.

    Foreign Exchange market abuse is not a civil right.

    Is "The Fed" the magic word?

    Is Federal Reserve the magic phrase that gets you kicked to moderation?

    I tried for the third time to post a simple response concerning banking. I tell you what. I will post it to your Facebook page.

    There is some VERY weird moderation software going on in the background here.

    Re: Uh-oh (as Shane Roach)

    I will tell you what is interesting. Some of my posts go straight through, and others get held for moderation.

    So far, the two held for moderation had to do with banking.
