I can't discern whether Masnick is being disingenuous or just plain dense. ISPs have just been given carte blanche by Congress to do whatever the hell they want with user data. Data privacy? Poof! Gone. Permanently. Data rights? What data rights? Poof! Gone away also. Historically, when there isn't a law prohibiting any given thing, the sky is the limit. Whose to do say definitively that the bobbleheaded executive boards of big ISPs that stand to gain from S.J.Res.34 won't decide to start selling piecemeal individual internet histories? You don't know, Masnick, and neither does anyone else. It doesn't help that you're spreading FUD and speculation as fact rather than opinion.
Funny how the only ppl complaining about #Brexit are those with something to lose - hundreds of thousands of biblical exodus refugees who are looking for a government handout and globalists. As for the 'faulty math' the UK is the 5th largest economy on the planet. It operated just fine *before* joining the EU and it will operate just as fine after they start governing themselves with their *elected* leaders instead of faceless EU bureaucrats making blanket decisions without regard to anything except the globalists' bottom line.
Personally, I'm not 'retreating' anywhere. I know exactly what the story is with gunman Mercer. Like all the other mass shooters in the US, I would wage he was on prescription psychotropic medication such as anti-anxiety and/or anti-depression drugs. A study by the Mayo clinic concluded that 70% of Americans are are on at least one prescription drug, and more than half take two. And one of five patients are on five or more prescription medications, including anti-anxiety/anti-depression. This stuff changes brain chemistry and not in a good way.
Gimme a break. A shin bone that pops through a kneecap is nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero. Compared to the sluicing, gory goodliness of a good slice to the carotid by the deadly sharp blade worn by an NHL'ers skate, Kevin Ware's injury was child's play.
Evidently, Rieders, et al. also thought the internet was only for porn because no one who knew his ass from a hole in the ground would fire off random nastigrams to not one, but *three* law professors. Thanks to the dumbassery of the Rieders firm, the entire internet will be laughing at them in no time just like Barbra Striesand.
I would think that in an age when most travelers despise the airlines for the bullshit TSA security theater antics that United would be absolutely orgasmic there was a blogger who was willing to whore for them. Guess not. #UnitedDumbassery
So the MIT honors grads with world-changing innovations are being deported, meanwhile, the dirtbags sneaking over the border bringing with them their anchor babies are here to stay for all the freebies that are denied to Americans in need. Then they bring over their extended family and the American taxpayer continues to support them for life. Bravo!
Like all "wars" created & waged by the Congre$$ional puppetry paid off to do the bidding of the Wall Street and the military-industrial complex, this particular snow job is no different. It works because of the massive indifference/ignorance of the great majority of Americans who would rather bury their heads and believe what their corporately consolidated media tells them rather than think critically and question the bullshit.
LMAO. Google deserves whatever it gets just on principle alone. Crawling into bed with the NSA and pretending a 3 letter agency has more know-how to stop Chinese hackers is a pathetic smokescreen for what the real reason is behind the partnership.
Is it really necessary? Of course it is. Google has very deep pockets. A poke in the ass along the lines of a major settlement will remind them not to be so careless the next time they roll out something as asinine as Buzz.
The BMI clearly lives in SGA la la land, but that being said, the business owners' clearly lied about following atty advice because no atty with a law degree and license to practice would ever recommend NOT answering a complaint. Not even in Arizona. The owners made a bigger mess of the situation that could have been avoided had they not blown off the complaint.
