I tried this but then facebook didn't work. So your code is quite useless for 1/7th of the population.
This is a feature, not a bug.
It would be nice if the media would 1. dig more into the content of the leaks and 2. investigate the source of the leaks and give us facts rather than try to spin some kind of "Trump is a Russian plant" conspiracy theory.
Disagree with the conclusions all you like, but there's certainly not a lack of facts or investigation going on. I also haven't seen any serious suggestions of Trump being a Russian plant (outside of biased partisan stuff at least). I have seen lots of speculation that Russia/Putin have a strong interest in backing Trump, or that Trump is favorable towards Russian interests, but that's hardly the same thing.
The only evidence the DNC was hacked as opposed to the target of a whistleblower is from the security firm the DNC hired themselves.
I keep seeing this quoted, but Crowdstrike's conclusions were also confirmed by Fidelis and Mandiant/FireEye, i.e. their competitors:
The evidence that the hacks originated in Russia is circumstantial, and there is no evidence it was state sponsored.
Definitively and absolutely making an attribution call is very difficult, but this is hardly the case of using one indicator to state "Well it was Russia." The research, evidence, and conclusions are all clearly laid out, and while they didn't point to a smoking gun, there's a reasonably clear case that the majority of the signs point to Russian APT activity as being behind the intrusion:
...that Providers enjoy a monopoly, they do so because the elected officials provided it.
The proper solution is through electing officials that will revoke the monopolies, not allow the Federal Government to intrude in State Business because once you allow that, you are likely to see i in other things that you decidedly don't want.
So why is it bad when the Federal Government tells a State what to do, but it's a-okay when the State tells a City what to do?
You do realize that the Federal Government is perfectly authorized to regulate interstate commerce, right?
By the way, it's also not so easy to simply elect officials based on a single issue, on any level except the local, unless you manage to make that issue a single hot-button, which really only occurs for a very few number of sparing things. Furthermore, it's not always simply the case of "enforced monopoly", because in many cases the amount of investment needed to wire a city in competition with an established provider is very large, and the expected rate of return just doesn't justify a second private company making it, so passing a community bond issue is really your only option short of praying to Google to come to your town.
