Comment Re:And Obama once again is a blatant liar (Score 1) 534

Which should not be a surprise to anyone paying attention to the last 8 years. The Obama administrations has been very very aggressive in pursing charges against any and all whistleblowers.

This is just Obama being a coward and not admitting that he refuses to pardon Snowden because he actually wants him charged.

Comment What a bad idea (Score 1) 153

What use is this really? Your going to text 7000 random people looking for info over a year old? You're going to waste so much time sifting through useless non relevant information that way.

Also who responds to random texts claiming to be police? I don't answer texts from numbers I don't know, especially not when they claim to be from a business or government office.

There was scam run just last month with texts claiming to be from the IRS.

Such a waste of time. Data gathering like this is just stupid.

Comment Re:Fees == false advertising (Score 1) 81

I had the same exact experience shopping around for cell service. Not one would tell me what my monthly bill would actually end up at. And of course it ended up about $20 more than the advertised price thanks to fees. Lucky for me this area isn't very busy so I switched to prepaid service and get the same level of service with out "fees" added on.

Basically yes. You want to live in a high cost of living area, then you'll have to work on top of UBI to do so. You don't want to work at all, then you'll have to move to where UBI covers all your costs.

I don't see a problem with that. It's really not that different then what's going on already, how many people work 2 or 3 jobs to live in the bay area or NYC today?

With UBI they can afford to move to a new area as they have guaranteed income and don't have to worry about getting a job right away.

Somehow the most likeable candidate supposedly couldn't win against the two most unlikable candidates ever. Or at least that's how his campaign was framed right from the start by pundits and the media in general.

That is some damn fine propaganda work there. What's truly sad is that it worked.

Comment If they want to play.. (Score 1) 86

If thats the game they want to play alright then. In order to avoid regulatory loopholes, businesses operating under common can no longer offer non common carrier services.

I'd be more than happy to have all isp's be just isp's. If all they can compete on is data service, we might start to see some real advancement in isp offerings.
