When does the Chinese Room go from addition and multiplication tables to "understanding math"?
ebno-10db for president! (try and stop me!)
Run for Senate in Pennsylvania, the law should be that they accept only from PA citizens. Running to represent district 5 in NY? Please only accept from distric 5 residents. Otherwise we have Senators from Delaware representing Hollywood's interests and not his own constituents. Joe Biden, I'm looking at you.
While it's an intriguing idea it's impossible in practice. The guys in hollywood will just run the ads on their own without giving the money to the election campaign.
If I'm for a position, is it bribery when I donate to a politician that shares my views?
Of course not. But I will warn you that when it turns out that the politician you're supporting does something unpopular, you're supporting that too. If you had just bribed them you'd have the excuse of saying "I don't support him I just needed him to vote ___ on S.B. 12345". See also...
So wait, did this guy sell the beans to other farmers as roundup ready?
Protesting weed laws doesn't make you a drug dealer
Of course not, but I bet you'd be hard pressed to find a Republican that would disagree with cops searching the group of NORML protesters marching on 4/20 to see if they're carrying any.
I may not want everyone knowing i have the strip club programmed into my gps.
Just name the location "Labor and Delivery"
And I can only imagine the rolling roadblocks you'll get when a row of cars line up and synchronize their speeds.
Only a problem if you're a meatbag driver who thinks he's awesome enough to be allowed on the road with his sluggish 1 second response time.
Or if everyone else hacks their car to answer "no" when your car asks to be let through.
Hell, I'll settle for a party that has an internally consistent platform, instead of one demanding small government while paying billions of dollars to track down and house people for "feeling good". Moderation be damned, I want non-hypocrites so at least I know where I really stand.
It shall not be a violation of this section to circumvent a technological measure in connection with a work protected under this title if the purpose of such circumvention is to engage in a use that is not an infringement of copyright under this title.
Yep, that's going to have to be stricken from the final bill.
Since the cards were used to steal directly from the bank and they've got no place to chargeback to like they usually do to cover their losses due to their insecurity, I wonder if we'll finally see a sudden outbreak of security from the banks.
and should be treated as such
So I can break into your house and read the postcards you already received, and you're cool with that?
The best part is that we wouldn't need to have infinite recursion because Police Police Police Police police, police Police Police.
A postcard anyone who handles it between point A and B can read what is on that postcard compared to a letter they would need to open to read.
And once it's dropped through the slot in my mailbox at the end of the journey, nobody can read it without opening my mailbox and fucking with my shit. Unless, of course, my mailbox is on a server somewhere, which the government thinks means it is allowed to fuck with my shit all it wants.
However, any law which is used to curtail the right to keep and bear arms and is upheld by the courts can be used as a precedent for future courts to rule on similar laws applying to other constitutionally guaranteed rights.
Which is how we got to where we are now: "free speech zones" became "free gun zones", "I know it when I see it" obscenity became "I know it when I see it" scary-looking-rifles, and "sex offender registries" are heading towards "gun owner registries".
We're already nearing the bottom of the slippery slope and seem to be picking up speed.
