Then there is the whole Fucking Common Sense thing about Government Employees using Government emails to discuss Government business.

Seems like it's a good opportunity to create a new, well deserved law that any correspondence about government business, policy or even what color you want your office painted needs to be done on a government email account.

OK, you are a fucking moron.

Anyone could do business with mega...Just show up with cash, or gold coins, or a couple of fucking sheep. Is that your position?

So what's on the list of "disapproved" businesses now?

Whatever the fuck Mega does

Who's next?
Publications that won't print the party line?
Manufacturers who won't hire illegals?

With your stupid, cavalier attitude of "just use cash" (Have I called you a fucking moron yet?) you are enabling the Feds to pick and choose business to kill by merely whispering into the ear of financial services.

Google has to get special permission to come into a community and put down lines. Just the community. Comcast, AT&T, etc can't say squat about it.

Now, with these new rules, these jokers actually has a mechanism to inhibit Google through the FCC. the FCC will be able to 3place conditions on Google too.

My dad patented an oil field tool that relied on the magnetic properties of the drill pipe to perform its function.

Someone copied it and started selling it. My Dad sued.

During jury selection an officer of the Navy who specialized in detection and masking of submarines through magnetic means was dismissed from the pool by the defendants.

He knew too much about the key technology involved in the trial.
