    Re: Re: internet

    The internet is the NEXT Information supply..
    News papers USED to print NEWS..then Comments, then BS..
    TV used to do news, then comments, then BS..

    Part of this is the idea of HOW do you hide the truth..
    BURY IT IN BS..Bury it in Comments, Bury it with Lies..

    This came around when politicians found out that OTHER countries have BETTER USA news then the USA does..

    Re: Re: Re: Re: iTS INTERESTING

    IF we took all the languages in American english...and used All the rules from Each language..
    It would be a convoluted pile of Monkey pucky..
    OH!! thats IS a pile of Monkey pucky..

    Its the thought that I before E except after C...Is only 50% right. There are as many word 'IE' as there are 'EI' so the rule is Mote.

    Both American and English...WEBSTER changed English to what he Wanted, changed meanings, and spellings. That became American. And both languages are composed of Collected words from every language it has run into and from Previous Languages..

    AND its not expressive. You can read a line in Any of a dozen ways. No meaning implied.
    Putting Inference into a Sentence, MEANS something.. Books can give meaning to what is do you do that with a comment?

    wHY NOT? The american/english language is so Full of contradictions, that its amazing its called a language, it should be a conglomerate..

    Does this...

    Does this have any Affect on TRUTH ON THE INTERNET???

  • Mar 28th, 2017 @ 2:03pm

    I know...


    Where would you have Easy access(I DID NOT SAY FREE) to the old movies/music/video games/console games??

    Where would a company have Access to a READY CUSTOMER BASE?? DIRECT access..NO exporting, NO shipping, Little handling, NO HARD COPIES..Just DATA..

    This ALSO is forcing the industries TO UPDATE the DATA..from the OLD film/tape/VHS/what DIGITAL FORM.
    There have been TONS of media LOST from Abuse/fire/no care of maintenance..

    WHAT USE do these Media HAVE?? to them, its MONEY. they use it to sell back and forth to give RIGHTS to each other..
    But how mnay people KNOW, how many Wizard of OZ films there are? or the ORIGINAL VIDEO? Alice in wonder land?? HOW about the OLD SINGERS...How mnay people KNOW that LOTS of Music is NOT original.."Happy trails" was NOT a Van halen Song..

    WHAT chance do people have if ALL this data is LOCKED UP?? The controlling companies DONT LIKE NEW BUSINESS, and would rather OTHERS DO they can CHARGE FOR IT..

    The funny part, tends to be, Noticing that THERE ARE ALLOT OF REMAKES...and IF' their RIGHTS are based on the original...THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS...They expired WITH the original..
    EXCEPT where they used EXPIRED Rights from another Author, Copied his story line or Changed it..This is a fun area..ALL GRAY...DARK GRAY..

    That all these corps Keep trying to get More and more and more and more...
    and keep Pounding at the DOORS to get more.

    Every time I look, State, federal Protections and agencies are being Lost..
    For Many years, Most of our Gov. agencies have had a problem..They can ONLY Charge corps, and those Fines and fees, were created for 1 amount, from 40+ years ago..They have Never been raised..and NOt based on any formula. Its like a $50 speeding ticket to these corps.
    How much of our Gov. is being taken up by Corps Demanding MORE/EXTRA rights..

    Awhile back they tried to get Corps PERSONAL rights..and everyone laughed..
    I made a comment, about Ok, Personal rights or Corporate rights, Pick one..Why do they get more rights?

    Last comment..
    that you are paying the Court costs for these corps..
    And if they WIN, you pay the court costs, PLUS more Profits from OLD audio recordings..

    Re: Never learn from History, do they?

    They dont learn from BASIC ECONOMICS..
    They dont learn that 1,000,000 Showing up to a SHOW/Auditorium isnt always a good thing..
    They Dont want things Cheaper..The movies industry and Channels, Own the whole system or get Paid for Every step in it..

    It Costs them the end. The TV Corps(7-8 of them) Own 70% of all broadcasting around the world..

    WE could DROP the cost of broadcasting by about 90%...but they dont want that, they want to have EVERY chance to hide money in TONS of expenses..Expenses THEY control..

    Spanish inquisition??

    This is as funny, as Religion BEFORE WE COULD PUBLISH Massive quantities of Any book.
    The Churches RULED..they TOLD you what the book said, and the Common people could NEVER see the book..
    Every NEW pope, changed the rules..
    Every region of the Church was different..
    Rich Ruled over the poor, with backing from the Church, and allot of money going to the Church.. They EVEN SOLD forgiveness....

    Warnign speach..

    I hope the readers KNOW..that cellphones are not safe for talking on..The encryption ISNT used most times, and our Gov. has most of the codes anyway..
    Encryption is a pain, and it does not matter how safe it is, it TAKES TIME to encrypt and decrypt.. LAG, for all you Computer people..

    " ..recognise they have a responsibility to engage with government, to engage with law enforcement agencies when there is a terrorist situation”

    Love this IDEA...a Gov agency telling the PEOPLE that the internet and its service HAVE to be open enough to MONITOR what is happening in their services..
    The amounts of data to SORT and process...IS HUGE..private or Gov. processing is HUGE.. and it Cant be fully automated..

    There is something here that SOME may not notice. In developed nations we have TONS of Identification and Paper work on everyone. In other countries they barely KNOW who is WHO..
    Then we have Tons of people crossing borders and WE HAVE NO PAPER WORK ON THEM..And the countries they come from has very little..

    HOW open would the gov. Be, if they had to be MORE OPEN..that we could monitor EVERYTHING they do..

    How much of our gov. business is DONE OUTSIDE the office? Off the floor WHERE ITS SUPPOSED TO BE..

    That OLD "Im right you are WRONG" attitude..
    "Do it My way or NO way"

    Its funny.
    For all the small channels that would PAY to be on cable..and CABLE pays then $0.03 for EACH person watching??

    200 channels..
    20 you watch mostly.
    100 others that show something interesting, ONCE IN AWHILE..
    80 channels You dont care about..

    There are VERY few channels that CABLE pays more then PENNIES and DIMES for..100 channels cost them $3-$70..
    CABLE could FORCE the big guys to COMPETE..but they dont. The Sports industry is BOUGHT OUT.. And always go to highest bidder for STUFF we really dont watch..

    Lets just pay the swat team, FORGET the cops..
    Police seem to be TO SCARED to talk to a lone person..

    Also, 50 Vehicles??
    You could surround the HOUSE COMPLETELY and still have Extra vehicles..
    50 vehicles with 1 person IN EACH...THIS IS NOT A LUNCH BREAK, this is NOT A DONUT SHOP..

    Did the DOG not like how the Trespasser SMELT??

    2 swat teams and they JUST GASSED EVERYTHING??
    What about that NICE bullet proof shield they have?? Let the person SHOOT a few shots FIRST..then YOU KNOW he found the gun..

    How many police officers IN these 2 towns?? Working at that time??? and how many EXTRA called in?? OVER TIME..

    Long ago..

    It was Mentioned that IN THE CLOTHING INDUSTRY..

    Also isnt there one about Derivative ART??
    You might copyright a STYLE/DESIGN but NOT a concept..

    REALLY want to suggest something here......

    If you were a Gov. and REALLY wanted to TAG everyone..
    KNOW as much as you could, and document them and WHERE they are...What they are doing..
    1. LET the advert corps do the work..
    2. Add camera's for monitoring things and tagging people..
    3. MAKE ID VERY IMPORTANT...Every state MUST prove VALID ID..

    We get Pictures of every person, you know where they shop/what they get, ANY purchase needs ID.. Private corp/malls Monitor and can TRACK you..

    Anyone on a LIST?? Buy something get looked up and figure out what you are doing..

    Diddnt our gov . Pay these service TWICE in the last 15 years to UPGRADE EVERYTHING???

    Re: If the old guard thinks it is bad now...

    Consider a Book of EVERYTHING..
    And you can either go and search the directory and Look at certain sections, or RANDOMLY open the book and find something different.


    Like a Dictionary and someone Takes a Whole section(letter D) and changes the Order, changes the Meanings, Takes out the word THE' from any description..

    WHAT good is a Dictionary when everything is Mixed up??
