Sadly, not amazing to me at all. Some years ago I bought a book of prepaid airline tickets the day before the company not only stopped accepting new customers but stopped completely (declared bankruptcy).
Funny then how many Jews were killed. And how about, not just go to work but don't go near there? And how come I didn't get the message nor did any other Jewish person I know?
Al Qaeda as threat to national security is a pretty low standard. In any case, Congress and the NSA, and the White House, and the rest of the political-legal systems, are all on the same side. And it's not yours.
I meant no one who works in IT (and not only, but of course lots of people are from Dallas)
No one is actually from Dallas, so no family there, and there's nothing to do there but eat and shop anyway.
Which Jew? Maybe it's one of my cousins.
Every public opinion poll says just the opposite. Too many to cite, but here's one: http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-07-23/politics/40862490_1_edward-snowden-nsa-programs-privacy It's easier to blame the victims than the people in power.
Others have pointed out that the feds will just arrest you or the web site owner or whoever either under existing law or they'll pass a new one. This is an attempt to find a technical solution to a political problem and that will never work.
These are the people who invented the phrase "destroy the village in order to save it"--do you think they give a shit about Cisco stock?
Actually very few old American cars left in Cuba. Big majority you see on the street are mid-80s Ladas. So only 25 years old. BTW you could probably do worse than a car that's still running after fifty years. You think your current car will be running in 2063?
There is zero chance that Congress or the White House will withhold as much as a penny from TSA. As soon as someone says "do you want the terrorists to win?" the GAO and everyone else will collapse.
Setting aside the Google/Apple confusion, the problem is not that whoever has not been paying taxes, the problem is that they are an AMERICAN company not paying taxes. When was the last time anybody suggested the Italian government was aggressive in pursuing Italian tax cheats?
If that were true, then presumably "Europe"--rather a broad concept, isn't it?--should be "better" than the US. But in what way is it? Much worse unemployment, to name only one thing, and on the other hand major efforts by the rulers to do away with the social welfare state that's been in place since the end of World War II.
The law will have zero effect on the NSA. It will merely push what they do, and will continue to do, further into the dark recesses of their operation. It's like laws claiming to regulate banks' behavior. They can't work.
Don't agree with a lot of this but one thing to keep in mind is that we only have the Japanese gov't word for what they did. I don't know what happened or didn't, but I do know that "standing up to the US" plays very well in every country--sometimes even in the US.
