AT&T needs to be broken up again. "Ma Bell" is far worse than they were back before the first imposed break up. And FOP? While I am generally favorable to unions, the police unions in this country have become just shy of terrorist organizations. Some serious sanctions and actions against these terrorist organizations should be paramount.
To the surprise of nobody. You can be assured the only one to get anything out of all of this, in some measure we may not see right now, is Trump. He has never done anything without getting some grift from it somehow. Consumers? Taxpayers? They were never considered.
... of TorGuard, I can attest that the VPN still works perfectly well. I just choose to use a server in Vancouver Canada instead of one in the US. Or I can choose a myriad of other servers in other countries. There isn't any performance hit that I can see, at least not on my 200MB/15MB cable service. Anyone that was using a US server was an idiot, anyway.
NOTE: I have no intention of shooting anyone or anything. I don't own any weapons of any kind and loathe them. This is simply a hypothetical question expounding upon the seemingly common trope that 2nd amendment advocates posit about being able to defend themselves from any and all threats with impunity.
So since LEOs are a provable and documented threat to the safety of everyone and everything, should it then be reasonable that the general public can shoot them on sight? Just asking for some clarification.
I have a WeChat account that I use to keep in touch with many of my Chinese friends. I'm not a Chinese citizen, I'm a very white American. I did not need to use some other person to open my WeChat account. I even have a Weibo account, which linked to my WeChat account. Now, I can't do monetary transactions in WeChat because that does require having a Chinese ID card and bank account, which I, of course, don't have. But, the app and account itself are not restricted otherwise. There is something with this Australian story that doesn't make much sense.
