There are still plenty of IP, but so many companys just buy them up and sit on them like they are a old childrens toys that need to be preserved in a box to keep value.

Lets face it, these company's are hoping to make money on them when the demand is high, its just a typical move in a oligarchy

"This is a pretty reliable method of creating new terrorists."

You would think this would be obvious, but it either is not to the assholes in Washington, or they want it that way. More terriorst = longer 'war on terror' and that equals to bunch of contractors making loads of money, as a bonus, it gives them equal excuse to ignore the constitution, it also seems to give the court system a way to also ignore our constitution.

Im normally not into the conspiracy theory bullshit, but when the shoe fucking fits...

My job is fixing VPN for remote employees, im sure every single one will disagree. The internet is a HUGE part of are economy now, about as important as roads, electricity. More importantly, its a new way company's are finding a way to charge extra for things you cannot see. FCC just said sure, lets take this father.

The way you simplified such a complex problem down to once sentence and threw in game console to continually minimize it (even though it has nothing to do with anything we are talking about) was a bit of a joke. Makes me wonder, did you think of this simple statement yourself or did you hear something like that from a ideologue.

One more thing, the phone 'want' is considered a necessary utility and is treated as such

Thats a really really bad analogy, do you know what a firewall is? do you understand the difference between a logical network and err pipes....cause its a world of difference.

Networking systems do have shutoff valves at critical places to stop the flow of bad information before it causes critical damage (at least a decent secure setup, it certainly can be done without great expense). In 20 years the tech industry has done more to protect information then the oil company's have done to protect their oil in 80.

you never did answer his questions, infact, you seem to shut the argument down rather quickly which leads me to believe you dont have one.

If his logical fallacy is wrong, whats your argument? how is it that our temperature in a 100 years has grown so fast when normally stuff like this takes thousands of years. Do you really believe that cutting all these trees down and dumping all the co2 in the air is ok? if so why do you believe that? Do you not understand how greenhouse gasses work? If so, explain how dumping a bunch of co2 in the air is ok, if not go read up on it and then answer my question...its ok, ill wait....... What about how the temperature has risen with the co2 levels to a frighting degree of similarity?

There are alot of reasons to believe man is involved, can you provide some logical reason why man is not involved?

Please provide some intelligent argument, your little one liners are cute and amusing, but in no way do the explain the opposing side, infact...i have never really heard a opposing argument, no logical explanation for any of my questions and many more.

Strange, id been charged like .50 on a 3.00 purchase before, i wasnt happy about it but i understand the retailers need for it.

On another note, retailers up the price at there own peril. Free market is just that, and things are generally prices at the line it could be. If a widget that cost .10 to make can be sold at 5.00 it will be, if it can be pushed up to 6.00 it will be...if its pushed up to 6.00 and nobody buys it, then its going to go back down to 5.00....

A really good example of this is the gaming consoles that get sold at a loss, this is because they cant sell it for anymore. Companies claiming taxes and credit card fees raise prices are really just lying, they raised prices because they can get away with it because the market can still move it.

First, it was worded weird, your response from the former response makes it sound like Facebook is mandatory to receive power and water..

You could have worded it like "the government already requires you to get water and electricity" Instead of continuing on the theme of "it is already mandatory"
Dont call me dense because you dont know how to clarify your statements

The first link you gave was just to be hooked up to a proper sewage. While i hate defending the worse state of all time, Florida, it does seem likely this ruling is based on health reasons, sewage not going to the proper place has caused many diseases and is a health risk to not just her, but everyone around her. Nothing in there about electricity though.

The second link you gave, is about international people getting together to figure out a safe way to build buildings (you know, so blocks dont burn down and shit like that) It has noting to do with international law...Its a policy that the international community all agreed was good practice and country's created laws on there grand conspiracy here.

But hey, far be it for me to tell you what you do or do not want to live in, plenty of country's don't have building codes or sewage requirements, by all means go live there...Swim in your shit and other peoples shit as far as i care. Want to burn alive in a building because its unsafe without proper exits? not my problem...but dont complain because i want some standards when i go to a building, public or private.

Out of all the stupid shit our government does, and there is alot, minimal safety standards, fire code, sewage requirements, these things comfort me...i dont want my water to contain my neighbors piss and shit, nor do i want my house to burn down because my neighbors start on fire.

I know, you want your freedom to burn alive and drink piss...i want to the freedom to not do that, thanks....

Sorry buddy, but if you think that Obama is the center of all the problems your not seeing the big picture. It doesnt matter who the president is, the system is setup the way it is and one president will be the same as the other.

Since congress is landlocked in this crazy congressional drawn district and many of them are only challenged by even crazier people, the real problem is there.

In the end, this president, the former president and the next few presidents, plus the congress, supreme court and pretty much are entire government will go down as the worse of all time....but i would like to say, your singularly focus on one person means you will do nothing to help stop it because your fantasy land thinks that the president you vote for next time will fix it, but he/she wont..even if by some fucking miracle you get someone who truly wants to change it, you still got 435 idiots in one chamber, 60 idiots in another, then 9 idiots who are looking at them and paving the way for more stupid behavior (supreme court)

i could think of quite a bit of problems that a 'couple of right hooks' would solve

Now that i think about it, whats the point of any law anyways? it should all be social justice, mob rule thats what i say, fuck the goverment. People in general should be allowed to just decide at any given moment what is a fair punishment and if somone is guilty or not, facts, evidence, fair trail...all that is just pointless when anyone can just look at a moment in a situation and just know what to do. couple of right hooks, maybe blow his brains out, or burn him...all these things can just be decided by whoever is around at the moment of emotional impulse
