Yeah, this is pretty much it. There's a LOT of cynicism but it's well deserved. The Federal gov't has proven to all of us that they are not to be trusted. Trust is EARNED not inherent. If you violate the trust someone has in you, it may never return, or at best it's going to take a lot of time and work.

Someone should ask him to list all 100 of his ways it could present an officer safety issue.

I can name a few reasons that speed traps present a civilian/driver safety issue...

Let's be honest here: Police traffic fines have almost nothing to do with safety anymore. They're about income for whatever governmental organization the police represent.

Honestly, if you just want to get a site with a few pages up for a client without a ton of money to spend, wordpress is the perfect solution. It takes mere minutes to set up a wordpress blog and install a theme, then just customize the images/content and you're done.

I think Wordpress is pretty horrible under the cover, but in the realm of "it just works," it's hard to beat for simple web sites.

Google is a thing, btw. This article aggregates a lot of what I'm talking about.

The fact remains that regardless of their will, NK doesn't have the physical or technological means by which to hack sony and offload hundreds of TB of stolen data...

More like based on "convenience." True professionals (unlike the government agencies in question) have come forward several times with what effectively amounts to proof that NK couldn't possibly have hacked Sony. The government is simply using this as a tool to get more leverage against NK. Can't say I blame them, because "deception and manipulation" is the name of the game in government/politics, but it's still just BS.

I mean...when the hacker "organization" comes out and says "we're not north korea," and starts making fun of the FBI for arriving at that can probably bet it's not NK.
