The disappointing aspect of all of this is that through a simple script such as this the works would have been disseminated far and wide and this could only generate more interest. Through "poor" quality offerings that cost nothing works like these find a wider audience. Wider audiences generate more interest and, in some cases, a desire for both higher quality materials and more works, refined and raw. These, in turn, generate thought, discussion, ideas and, in the end, more creations.
Mr. Gottlieb has clearly failed to recognize pure opportunity due to a misguided sense of ownership entitlement to works that are not his own. A far, far too common stance by those that would believe that the rent is more valuable than the work. Greed and self-interest is what that is and this while hiding behind the espoused virtues of protecting the creators, protecting the creations and protecting an income unearned.
erhm.. It looks to me like the European Union gives at least two fucks and I'm almost certain that there's at least two more fucks east & west of Europe and I give one fuck so that's potentially five whole fucks given. I forget, do you need the douche before or after you've been fucked? Fuck it, you should probably douche twice for safety's sake. Isn't there a pole somewhere you should be licking? Put that tongue to better use, maybe?
It simply boggles the mind that this woman has any credibility whatsoever in matters pertaining to intelligence. Her top donors are pretty heavily vested in taking in the money of the American people. She's proven beyond a reasonable doubt whose interests hold sway over her actions.
Feinstein is a staunch supporter of the U.S Surveillance State (USSS).
How comfortable her life must be as one of the richest members of the Senate. Living proof that you can buy and sell anything.
Yeah, between the lines, sure. I just figured it was worthy of its own print AND I get to type "fuck". Win/win. There's too much "between the lines" as it is.. Give it to me straight man.. "We are the NSA and we collect fucking everything.". Surely that rips away any willfully ambiguous bullshit, no?
I'm a fan of the last paragraph of the article. I might've ended it with "Representative Peter King is a fucktard." though.
"There are many ways to care for America, most of which involve challenging the powers that be. King is one of those "powers," and his love of his country is the most insincere of all. His "love" asks for subservience from its countrymen, rather than accountability from its leaders. These leaders can make our country stronger, but that means they have to stop crippling their constituents and diluting their rights. We need courage, not bombastic flag-waving from a man so blinded by irrational hate he can't even see his own hypocrisy. Representative Peter King is a fucktard."
"Society decided that marriage is between a male and a female, not "religion"."
That's just it, Michael, Society, like religion, doesn't get to decide. To imply that two people get "different"rights because they are a male/male pair vs a female/male pair is denying individuals' their rights. Neither the government nor religion can be allowed to deny rights, or worse, give rights to some and not to others. (re: marriage)
What you've been saying all along is "I'm am part of the Society that wishes to deny rights to individuals because those rights belong *solely* to parties that I /We deem more appropriate. Intolerable.
Marriage, between two consenting adults, is an unalienable right. Which, by-they-by, might happen to be precisely why attempts at defining it are not meeting constitutional muster. The civil aspect of what privileges those rights entail are legal rights. The "contest" is to merge them and completely and irrevocably integrate the two : The right to marry shall be recognized and all of those so married shall be equal with regards to their legal status .
When one attempts to determine or establish that one married couple receives more benefit than another you, thereby, deny some basic premise of individual liberty and equality. Which, in essence, effectively terminates religious eligibility to integrate with this government in this matter.
"Society" and "Majority" are of little consequence here thanks to the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
