Exactly. The constitution really only applies to things that existed when the document was written. Things invented since then, particularly the internet and wireless communication aren't covered by it.

The President and the NSA told me so. They have a secret legal opinion of an interning lawyer that says so. And they only had to get 12 of them written before getting the one they wanted.

The news started with
"these are the 5 worst things that happened in our city"
then it became
"these are the 5 worst things that happened in our state"
"these are the 5 worst things that happened in our country"
and now it's
"these are the 5 worst things that happened on the planet"

And every day, somewhere, something really bad happened.

And people have trouble determining how likely that event is going to happen to them anytime soon [normally, a lottery ticket is more likely to hit].

"What are you doing to make selling electric cars as profitable and painless for your dealers as selling gasoline or diesel vehicles?"

It sounds like whomever wrote the summary is basically requesting that the electric car makers should make crappier cars, so they need more repairs, so people will go back to the dealer to get them fixed.

That sounds like a great plan.

I see samzenpus is still working hard to make the world a little worse, every single day.
