They don't repeat themselves, do they?

Someone who really cares about you will tell you the truth, even if it hurts.
Alright then, here's some truth.
There are three stages to losing your sense of patriotism.
1) When you realise the present, is not what you believed it to be. (ie America is not #1 in everything, tortures people, has faults, whatever.)
You are at stage 1, as are most political activists. (i.e. we have been a great nation, and can be again)
2) When you realise the past, is not what you believed it to be. (The abuses against other countries or the American people, are not a new thing. History is full of examples, but most people don't know their own history.)
3) When you realise the future, will not be what you believed it to be. (Repressive laws don't get rolled back. Authority does not relinquish power.)
The Berne Convention would seem to only require 50 years protection or the length in the country of origin, whichever is the lowest.
The link you supplied does not even remotely say that.
That's typically a product of training. We don't have much experience with it, because we don't need it.
But take an aborigine, and ask him to estimate how far something is, and you'll get a good accurate answer, even if it's not in feet and inches.
If I choose not to have any replacement offspring (and as a slashdot member, that 'choice' may be taken out of my hands anyway) will you let me live forever?
Note : Afghani's weren't responsible for 9/11. Saudis were. How do we repay Saudi Arabia? With cash, obviously.
The 5 steps above? That's how you create the terrorists of the next 20-30 years.
We did all of those things to the Germans and Japanese and none of them became terrorists
Someone needs to open a history book. No one promised the Germans and Japanese survivors that they would get more of the same.
America spent billions funding those countries rebuilding efforts after the war.
Flamebait? Really? You know it's the reactionary dismissal whenever someone points out that Americas actions *create* terrorists, that will forever prevent you from changing those actions. And thus, nipping the majority of terrorists in the proverbial bud.
Hmm, let's see....
Invade their country. (Check)
Bomb their country. (Check)
Kill thousands of their innocent civilians, men women and children. (Check)
Show no remorse for these acts. Indeed, be proud of them, and say the victims had it coming. (Check)
Tell the survivors that they are going to get the same. (Check)
How much research do you need? I thought America had drawn up this five-point-plan years ago.
are also "a benefit" to the customer, in terms of discounts. But again, your giving your data to the shop and anyone else they pass it to.
I don't use loyalty cards, I won't use this. If they want my data, let them break the law to get it, just like the government does.
Customers so desperate to be able to use a sucky service that they're willing to do the job a carrier ought to be doing... how many other businesses would *kill* to have that problem?
Ah, but they want the customer to pay *them* (the carriers) for the privilege of solving the carriers problem, not some upstart little company who has started selling boosters on Amazon.
Surely, a new level of greed.
Assange should not be exempt from the laws either. By all means, if there is sufficient evidence to warrant some questions, question him.
The authorities should also not be exempt from the laws. And if you knew anything about the case, you'd know the authorities are not following the law, and are not following due process.
Several mod5 comments above can educate you on this matter in more detail.
they *aren't* out to get you.
He smacked the elite squarely in the nose. They won't let such an affront go unpunished.
It's a matter of principal now. Peasants must not rise above their station.
As a 9 year old girl, she debunked the whole Therapeutic Touch nonsense, with a sensible experimental design.
If it helps, she grew up to be a smoking hottie, as well as having brains to burn. IMO, young kids could look
up to her for both her critical thinking skills, and the way she was no swayed by arguments-from-authority of
the "we're older than you, so we know better" sort.
If there's anything the Commonwealth games fiasco should have taught the English, it is that culturally, the Indians cannot admit when a project goes off the rails.
They will tell the Brits that everything is fine, right up until the rocket explodes.
Whom the gods would destroy, they first teach BASIC.
