Thank you. I thought I was the only one that noticed this.
Why would anyone trust Microsoft security software when it was Microsoft Windows' own pathetic security that created the need for all this whack-a-mole virus-scanning in the first place?
[Y]ou do know that was a Hollywood production, yes? When have that bunch *ever* portrayed an actual event with any degree approaching accuracy?
Primary Colors? Granted, the real Bill Clinton seems fictional.
Wag The Dog? We live that every day.
Sneakers? Surprisingly accurate about real hacking.
Max Headroom? Just around the corner...about twenty minutes from now, in fact.
Robocop? Could be shot in present-day Detroit. No need for expensive sets!
I could go on. Hollywood gets it right occasionally.
That's a bunch of crap. There have to be a couple of million Jesuses running around in Mexico alone.
You think that's bad...think of all the Mohammeds running around in the middle east.
That sort of oversupply is sure to lower their value.
The Onion already did a great "exposé" of this...Are Tests Biased Against Students That Don't Give A...?
One common counterargument in a lot of the "panopticon" discussions is that "I have nothing to fear, I've done nothing wrong".
The experience of millions of European Jews in the 1930s notwithstanding...this is a perfect example of why the total surveillance state is a horrible idea, especially with this demonstrated level of incompetence.
I hope this gets approved soon!
"I was furiously vagina" does not make sense.
Good! More furiously vagina for me!
It's not that you have ADD, it's that...LOOK! A SQUIRREL!
...who are like the scary talking doll in some nameless horror flick I once saw whose line was:
"Hi. My name's Tiny Tina, and you better be nice to me".
It was "Talky Tina", and it was an episode of Twilight Zone.
the collapse of building 7 was way too shady in my opinion. Add to that the fact that the news of its collapse were reported 20 minutes prior to it actually happening.
Didn't you know? The NWO/Illuminati/Bilderburg/whatever conspiracy goes back in time in order to cover up their activities! That's why there's no evidence! And the lack of evidence is proof that it happened!
With my level of insane paranoia, I easily qualify to work for the government intelligence services.
There are tons of stateless actors (and not an insignificant number of nation-states) whom are clearly enemies of the United States that benefit from his disclosures of our SIGINT sources and methods.
Oh, please. Our real enemies have known for a long time to avoid electronic communications. That's why it took so long to find Bin Laden — he communicated with the outside world through a network of trusted, non-electronic couriers.
The only point of the panopticon's activities these days is to (1) catch really dumb terrorists, and (2) serve their unidentified masters in the creation of a totalitarian surveillance state.
Just yesterday, Slashdot posted an article about how Boston police had plenty of information about a stolen motorcycle yet did nothing. So fighting crime obviously isn't high up on the list of priorities for our panopticon. So what is?
The American people is the BOSS of the NSA; it's in the Constitution.
But the government's argument is that the Supreme Court doesn't have jurisdiction over the NSA's activities. How much more unconstitutional can you get?
