Comment Re:The border exception is a usurpation. (Score 1) 321

The Supreme Court has held that the Constitution only applies to U.S. territory.

Yeah, and they fucked up Korematsu, Dred Scott and Kelo too. What's your point?

Technically it is Cuban territory being leased to the U.S.

Which is irrelevant to the bill of rights. The fifth amendment doesn't say "unless you stash the people you kidnapped on foreign soil". For any American official to hold anyone in custody without trial is a crime.

all countries need to protect themselves from unlawful entry

This is a reason for positively identifying anyone seeking entry. It's not an argument for violating their 4th amendment rights.

Comment The border exception is a usurpation. (Score 2) 321

The US Constitution is the entirety of the legal basis for the very existence of the American federal government. Is it binding upon all American government officials, agents, and employees at all times and all places. There is no provision in the constitution for the suspension of the bill of rights at the border, and the fact that our rights are routinely violated when entering the country is because our courts are derelict in their duty to enforce the constitution.

Because Obama was such a great peace loving man...oh wait a tick, he bombed the countries that Trump banned, killing thousands in the process, but of course the press didn't say shit about that. I guess murdering them is okay, its only banning them that is racist...maybe Trump should follow Obama's example then and start letting loose the drones?

Hey maybe if he racks up as big a body count as Obama he can get a peace prize too!

And you could turn the mic on and listen in on everything, or get access to all the accounts on the phone. Why you think the most interesting thing a compromised phone is good for is location tracking is between you and your stalking victims, but there are other uses for a compromised phone.

Comment Re:Too bad Mozilla needs to be forked again (Score 1) 44

Except they are getting rid of the only reason anybody uses their product so tell me again how its all about security? If you are arguing the web will be more secure when Mozilla is gone? Alright then argue that, but this move is completely pants on head retarded and considering how many users they've lost since the Australis debacle this could not have come at a worst time.

To use a /. car analogy it would be like the only car your company has enough sales of to keep you afloat is the convertible line so the CEO goes "Ya know what? Convertibles are unsafe, we're getting rid of them! The customers will love our attention to keeping them...hey where did everybody go?"

Meanwhile I'd love to see the figures from the Pale Moon guys about how many downloads they've been getting the past few months as I bet its through the roof, I know every article with another Mozilla stupid move in it has a comment section with users advising to bail on FF and go for Pale Moon instead. Ya know what? Can't say as I blame 'em, I switched to PM myself when I finally got tired of FF screwing with the UI and its actually a really nice browser, all my extensions work (and for the few that don't they have a handy list with links to the previous version of said extension that works with the latest PM), my theme worked, and for the couple of websites that put up a fit? One quick change of the UA string and it was all golden. Its like FF used to be before they went down the road to suckage, which just FYI I'm betting by Xmas they will be just another rebranded Chrome like Opera and a year or so after that they'll close up shop. After all what is the point of using FF now if it looks and acts like chrome and only uses chrome extensions? If I wanted chrome I'd bloody well use chrome!
