Ah, so not a paid shill, just an asshole. Got it.
Awful analogy. I give my ISP money every month, in return I get bandwidth with which I should be able to do whatever I please. If the ISP is struggling to deliver the advertised bandwidth then that's their problem.
"Why should Netflix free-ride over ISP investments ?" They're not, I'm paying my ISP for internet access. Which sites and services I choose to access is none of their business. Netflix has set a dangerous precedent here.
The Italians wrote the book on tax evasion. Then they failed to declare income arising from the book sales.
This makes sense. The efficiency of older stoves is just terrible. By fine-particular matter they mean smoke, or unburned wood gas. Newer EPA stoves have some steel tubes, with holes drilled in them, which introduce air into the top of the firebox. Given the stove's internal temp is high enough to cause ignition, this oxygen mixes with the unburned wood gas and ignites, providing more heat, less pollution, and greater efficiency. One thing that also needs mentioning is that burning wood is carbon neutral, if you're harvesting wood and letting it grow back. This isn't a fossil fuel, global warming issue.
You're right. This is way more about politics than it is about the state of the NHS. The Tories would sell it off to buy an election if they could get away with it. Worked for Thatcher.
Run for office. Donate. Call your reps. Write to newspaper editors. Encrypt your data and communications. Run a Tor node. Let your friends and family know your views and educate them. Offer to secure their computers. Start/join local protest groups. File FOI requests. Start/fund lawsuits. There are plenty more. My point is that there's always something you can do and being defeatist when the leaks aren't even over yet isn't going to help positive changes come any sooner.
Well with a shitty attitude like that, you're damn right there's nothing you can do about it.
Because shut up.
... just as soon as he's done serving his sentence for perjuring himself in front of Congress.
Couldn't agree more, I can't stand HuffPo. I also really dislike the layout with one story on a terrible massacre next to an article on 5 ways you're cooking bacon wrong. I'm also opposed to the aggregation model where they just scoop up other news organization's content and use it to make money. If every site did that, they would cannabalize each other. They need to hire real journalists and go after their own stories.
Well maybe if Obama didn't carry on Bush's policies people wouldn't compare the two? Remember Hope & Change(TM)? Obama was elected as the antiseptic to 8 years of Bush/Cheney infection. It seems Obama is just the same virus with a slight melanin mutation.
Why? Because of all the terrible stuff he and Cheney did. Were you not paying attention during those 8 years?
Did the governments of Italy, Spain, Portugal, etc act independently when they forced the Bolivian President's jet to land?
He's lying through omission. Actually he said phone calls, not email. What he didn't mention is that just about everything the NSA can get its hands on is bring stored for future use. Seems like a fairly important detail to leave out.
