How about instead of snark, you contact your senators and representative, and vote for liberals (that's liberals, not Democrats) whenever possible?
Because voting doesn't work. When team blue is just as bad as team red (because they have the same corporate sponsors) voting not only doesn't matter, it legitimizes a broken system.
Here's the thing: If you're arrested, you go with it until you get your lawyer. You can remain silent, but being argumentative, uncooperative
That's right citizen. When confronted by your masters, always use the properly fawning words. "Sir" should be the first word out of your mouth, and "Sir" the last word out of your mouth. And if it isn't, if you are being "disrespectful, resistant, uncooperative", maybe they'll just give you a black eye. After all, it's your word against theirs.
So remember. The proper position an American Citizen should have when dealing with the police is to quietly assert your rights and hope they don't violate them. Better to live on your knees than die on your feet, right?
4th amendment protects you against unreasonable search. How does this all square up?
Because you always have the option of waive your rights. They can't force you to walk through a scanner, but you can do so willingly. No one is taking away anyone's rights. But people sure do give them away.
Gravity calculations wrong? Dark matter! What? That's makes other calculations wrong? Dark matter! The more the better!
I'm being sarcastic here, but actually it's because I'm just so jealous. Real scientists can't simply explain things away by using Substance X.
Anything that we can not or have not been able to explain used to be called an act of God. Now, it's an act of dark matter. Hubble proves it!
Dose the it with liquid mushroom culture, and next year the pile will not only smell better, it will be smaller. Everybody wins.
When people realized the alternative was even worse. If you don't allow people to pass on their royalties, why allow them to pass on the business they built? Why not have the law state that upon the death of a company's founder, that company will become a public asset, for the good of the people?
Because it's theft, that's why. Because taking away a man's business is no different than taking away a man's royalties. He's earned it. And he can do whatever he wants with it, from giving it away to charity to giving it to his grandkids. We call that freedom.
What right to you have to tell anybody that they can no longer profit from work that they created?
Computer11, Computer12, etc. Get a new printer? Computer13, etc. New server? Computer14, etc. New user? Computer15, etc. Passwords? Computer16, etc.
In my local paper, there are eight stories above the fold. One of them is Double murderer to get another chance. Another chance? Thats objective? The whole paper reads like an editorial page.
Its not the technology, its the content.
