A libertarian wouldn't give Congress enough power to have any impact on those companyss operations. It's only a benefit to buy politicians when they can actually make laws that benefit you and screw everyone else.

Which was exactly the pretext Hitler used to invade Czechoslovakia. And then took over the rest anyway.
It's more likely the NSA would hack Verisign, take their keys, and use them to create whatever certificates they want. And if you think they care about what happens to Verisign as a result, I have a bridge to sell you.
"this person" is the lead dev. Which is why systemd has such bad design decisions. Sadly it seems we're stuck with it. And hey, it boots fast.
Honestly, you should treat any border like this. Take only disposable devices. Access any needed data via a VPN once inside the country.
Mine can't even start a swap partition if it's in fstab, if it happens to be an LVM volume. So glad distros decided it was production ready.
Yes, your national enemies. aka, the American People. Oh, and all the other non-criminal citizens of the world.
Like she's even going to get charged. Get real.
Holder deliberately gave guns to Mexican drug lorgs and didn't get charged. I don't think Hillary using her personal email is going to get Obama to turn on her
The intent of the Constitution is perfectly clear. It is only weasel lawyers that want to find a way around it, to oppress and enslave, who find it confusing.
The people who want to hide from the US will not include your backdoors in their systems. The backdoors only serve to allow the NSA (and possibly anyone else) to read Americans' communications.
My servers run 100% software that I can get and modify the source code for when required. I'd say he's done a great job.
The kernel is more reliable. Userland is definitely getting worse.
Yeah except now it's a single binary with 100 configuration files. Half of which just run a shell script anyway, because you need one to get the job done.
And I don't even mind that it replaces init, init sucked, but that it's that it's hijacking ntp, login control, syslog, cron, and any number of other tools that just worked before systemd.
Recent versions of systemd have hijacked syslog. I don't know about opensuse, but on Gentoo I had to go and tell systemd to send me my logs back to a real syslog daemon.
Yes, I meant exactly what I said. Without constant inflation, you could save money from working and retire on it. With inflation, you are instead forced to invest that money, generally in financial instruments, and hope that it grows at least as fast as inflation (plus whatever taxes and fees you get charged for the privilege of having your money keep up with inflation). Inflation therefore punishes savers.
The rich have much greater access to and control over productive assets. They control the financial sector, which gains most of the benefits of saver's money being forced into investments. Constant inflation is the largest cause of growing wealth inequality.
