Yeah fuck that. I can host my own mail just fine, thanks. Google owns enough of the world.
Like all such proposals, it makes sense only until you realize that the people enforcing these rules will be government bureaucrats ruled by politicians, aka human beings, who will selectively enforce, abuse, bend and break the rules whenever they feel like it for personal gain, financial gain, political gain or just because they screw up.
The police lie. News at 11. When pressed in hearings, as I recall, they couldn't come up with even a couple of examples where the registry actually helped them solve a crime.
Hey, I'm talking about Canada. We export oil. We have no interests in the middle east to protect.
Criminals do the same things all over African and even Eastern Europe. I don't see us invading them. Screw Iraq, we have no business fighting in the middle east unless they attack us.
The long gun registry was solely a tool for future disarmament attempts. It had no use in criminal investigations.
Sure you can. You just can't do it with a sourceless binary.
Of course, Obama then gave a cabinet post to Geitner, who was in charge of the NY Fed before and during the collapse. ie. the guy who was supposed to be regulating wall street.
More like the Hugo Chavez foundation. I suppose you think someone should just give these poor folk a car?
Maybe you should lend them your money at more generous terms?
Yep. Even if you have all the right paperwork and do nothing wrong, the officials working the border will sometimes just decide to make your life hell. They can arbitrarily refuse you entry, interrogate you for hours, and basically do whatever they want. And it's totally random.
Free trade benefits all countries involved, IF they play by roughly similar rules. Free trade with countries with no human rights, environmental rules, labour laws, or with manipulated currencies is economic suicide.
Google and Netflix are still probably the losers in that exchange. The result will be somebody else coming in and serving that niche in Canada, a force which may eventually be able to expand outward into Google and Netflix territory -- a force they would want to nip in the bud with their superior market presence. It's not like the secret of streaming video technology is unknown to Canadian engineers, and its not like Netflix or YouTube are so critical to Canadian day to day life that to cut off Netflix access would cause an overnight revolution.
Possibly, say Rogers and Bell. Who are, coincidentally, trying to setup a streaming service. And who more or less control the CRTC. Hrmm....
They have lots of staff.
Yeah, it's just awful having those billions of dollars falling out of the ground. We can barely stand it.
They can try and recline, but my knees are already there. But most of the time I'll just pay for exit row, if I have the choice.
