The only thing they're "grappling" with is how to continue unlimited spying while convincing you they're respecting your privacy.
"evading US justice"? I don't think so.
as a real secret any more, if there ever was. If the "secret" is based on scientific research, it's been published and is reproducible and all the relevant people already know about it. If it's engineering, anyone can figure it out. Probably the only thing that's "secret" any more is the Coca Cola formula.
Facial recognition software putting each face on the screen but despite having to go through 100 million faces finding the right face in just enough time to fill out the 44 minutes of the episode
Not clear to me why more leaks would help. We got lots of info from Snowden and Manning and what did that fix?
(or print to) pdf. Most useful after AdBlock.
going to cut the US off from the Internet for a day (like they did to N. Korea) as punishment for all this?
Try Ting (uses the Sprint network)
No again, it's time to recognize that the law means nothing when it comes to government spying.
You left out the biggest hurdle of all, the cost. The camera, the lenses, the software, and then of course you have to buy a higher-res monitor, and then possibly a more powerful computer. And possibly a printer.
the NSA gets to read email that somebody else stole, so they can truthfully (or "truthyfully") say they don't steal email.
In the McCarthy era a poll quoted the Bill of Rights and people said it was Communist propaganda. This is a symptom of the failure of the US education system. It has nothing to do with people being stupid or not stupid. This is stuff you're supposed to learn in school and if people didn't, it's because the schools suck.
All employees are disposable, and always have been. Companies exist not to provide jobs but to provide profits for their owners. And they are not stupid. If churning employees didn't produce higher profits, it wouldn't happen. They have the data--if fact, you probably help them gather it.
The embargo, which followed the nationalizations, of course didn't stop anything, which is why the US finally gave up. But more important, the Cuban government offered every property owner compensation based on the owner's valuation of the property for tax purposes in the previous year. You won't be surprised to hear that no one accepted. BTW it has been illegal for many years for any US firm to accept compensation from Cuba for nationalized property.
I think most atheists do get this, and I think a lot of atheists (like me) shouldn't be called atheists. I don't believe there is a God and I don't believe there isn't a God. I think a lot of people called "atheists" are like that. I agree that atheism is a philosophy and it can also be a political position (Dawkins et al). I don't agree with their anti-religion campaigning because, a. who cares and b. that's not the way to get people to stop being religious, as if that mattered anyway.
