When you start off with your head up your ass, you can only spout the bullshit that's collected in your mouth,

1 - the president doesn't have the authority to repeal an act, such as the Patriot Act....congress does; you know, like the republican house that did absolutely nothing while Obama was in office. You too fucking stupid to remember that far back?

2 - https://www.washingtonpost.com...

I mean seriously, how fucking stupid do you have to be to not see EVERY damn news article about Gitmo closing had republicans blocking Obama from doing it? Are you seriously that fucking stupid, or is the problem you just can't fucking read?

3 - this just sounds like you being a typical whiny ass republican dipshit who can only spout catchwords they here coming out of some other republicans ass.

4 - just quit being a lying bitch. If you're in a red state that didn't expanded medicare, the problem is your fucking ideologically driven cocksucking republicans who'd rather see people die than get medical help.

5 - http://abcnews.go.com/Politics... You're just a fucking stupid parrot.

6 - have to say, i can't find this rabid-cocksucking-republican talking point anywhere, so i have to assume you're simply full of shit like all the other republicans conspiracy theory fuckwads. http://fairuse.stanford.edu/ov... for reading not tied to some cocksucking republican lying bitch. 7 - here you're just full of shit. opinions are like assholes... like you. Obama didn't obfuscate government transparency more than any other president before him, although VP Darth Cheney probably did much worse without cocksuckers like you saying anything about it. Now you have the worthless twat Trump in office, who appears to be bought and paid for by Russia, and a bunch of co-conspirator republican traitors who won't hold him accountable. Fucking republicans are what's wrong in this country.... traitors, liars, and all around pieces of shit.

You really should heed your own advice. The first thing you do is spout of some conspiracy theory bullshit that it would take a fucking idiot to believe.

This is nothing more than the way things have been going for 35+ years... republicans fucking over the average citizen to give more money to businesses.

Senate Votes To Kill FCC's Broadband Privacy Rules (pcworld.com) 342

The Senate voted 50-48 along party lines Thursday to repeal an Obama-era law that requires internet service providers to obtain permission before tracking what customers look at online and selling that information to other companies. PCWorld adds: The Senate's 50-48 vote Thursday on a resolution of disapproval would roll back Federal Communications Commission rules requiring broadband providers to receive opt-in customer permission to share sensitive personal information, including web-browsing history, geolocation, and financial details with third parties. The FCC approved the regulations just five months ago. Thursday's vote was largely along party lines, with Republicans voting to kill the FCC's privacy rules and Democrats voting to keep them. The Senate's resolution, which now heads to the House of Representatives for consideration, would allow broadband providers to collect and sell a "gold mine of data" about customers, said Senator Bill Nelson, a Florida Democrat. Kate Tummarello, writing for EFF: [This] would be a crushing loss for online privacy. ISPs act as gatekeepers to the Internet, giving them incredible access to records of what you do online. They shouldn't be able to profit off of the information about what you search for, read about, purchase, and more without your consent. We can still kill this in the House: call your lawmakers today and tell them to protect your privacy from your ISP.

How do you know? It's entirely possible that the same vulnerabilities exist in different software doing very similar things. How do you know it's in the rendering engine and not one of the common libraries they use, etc? You don't, because no one has made the exploits available to you.

The real question is, if Mozilla has "already received" this information, why would they not share it with the other browser developers in the name of security?

Is one of Wikileaks' terms that they not disclose "secret information"? That would be pretty fucking hypocritical...

Which is a bullshit argument right out of the fucking stupid supply side economics (aka: fucking idiocy). Higher taxes, such as we had in the 40's and 50's, leads to more investment in business because they're looking for someplace that can store their money so they don't have to pay heavy taxes on it. It's one of the reasons those years had such high growth. The reduced tax rate since the 70's is what's caused owners to pull profit out instead of reinvesting it, hence why growth has been half what it should/could be.

Let me give you a primer.... Supply side economics = stupider than shit.

That 8 years of problems is your head being stuck up your ass. The only thing republicans have done since Nixon is run of the national debt.

Clinton dropped the deficit and had a surplus. The 10 year projection was 5.7 trillion surplus, and at the time our national debt stood at ~5.6 trillion. And what's the first thin Bush did.... cut taxes for the wealthy. You stupid fucking conservatives took this country from having a 10 year projection of being able to bring this country to a 0 national debt, to the point where Obama was when he came into office... 11.5 trillion debt, with a 1.6 trillion deficit on the year. And you worthless fucks complain? Fuck you. YOU are the problem. The only thing democrats have done for the last 20 years is clean up your fucking messes.

You, clearly, are a fucking moron.

As for the rest, you simply seem to be assuming that because there are people who disagree with reality, they must be democrats. Again, you clearly are a fucking moron. I'm a democrat.

Anti-vaccers are fucking morons... like you.

GMO's are most likely safe, BUT, the fact that companies have placed killswitches into food stocks so that farmers MUST re-buy seeds (the following year) ONLY FROM THE COMPANY... is fucking bullshit. Additionally, when a GMO crop is spread to adjacent farms via natural pathways, and then GMO companies sue the farmers out of their business because they ended up with some GMO crop in their fields.... that's fucking idiocy. https://www.cornucopia.org/201...

Anyone telling you radio waves are proven safe is a fucking idiot, including you. Radio waves have been studied until recently for health effects, and the studies so far have shown a mix of results. The only people who think it's been "proven" safe.. are fucking idiots, like you.

Holistic medicine is bullshit. Some herbal medicine may have some effect, but typically not remotely close to the effect that designed medicines do, but that's a world away from "holistic medicine."

Actual organic food is probably better for a persons system. If you don't think so, please, go have a nice cocktail of Dioxin and post tomorrow (i won't hold my breathe). As for proof actual organic is is worse or the same... it doesn't exist, except is some fucked in the head idiots rambling post right above mine. That said, i'm typically suspect of most foods that are labeled or marketed as organic; I think it's become more of a marketing ploy like gluten-free or "light" whatever.

So... why is it that conservatives fucks like you lie so damn much? I haven't met a single conservative in years that hasn't been a lying sack of shit... is it pathological, or do you truly not have an ethical bone in your body?
