Comment Fuck Burr (Score 0, Flamebait) 123

I live and work in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina, and Burr can kiss my ass. Any re-election signs this cocksucker puts up will be greeted by a big go fuck yourself. He's a pandering plutocrat that got elected by well meaning conservative constituents and sold himself out. Posting not-anonymously because fuck you NSA and your all seeing eye bullshit. Let's talk assholes. Add some more shit to my FBI file for all I care. Fuckers...

... to force your morality unto everyone else. Of course he's proud of his "successes."

It's not an issue of morality; it's an issue of legality. Being Jewish is illegal in most states. If you disagree with the law, you can write to your and suggest he/she vote to change the law. That doesn't mean you get to disobey it. This good German citizen was not breaking any laws. The Jews he caught were.

You'd have been one of the first to slap on a brown shirt, wouldn't you?

This is a good thing. Appreciate investment in mesh internet technology. If some tech-savvy-group-hated corporate entity starts getting people to think about the idea, maybe an open source solution will come about if it picks up momentum. If you hate the idea of a corporate dystopia where all internet pipes are monitored, start working on open source hardware and software projects to truly decentralize the internet from the lowest levels of hardware and network communication. Corporate America is 100% in control over the internet right now in terms of the L1-L2 side of networking, so do something about it or stop complaining.

And in bad form, replying to self... I can tell you from the inside that it is only going to get worse in terms of the pipe you get to your house. Your data is only going to be monitored more. The bandwidth and latency you get will get shittier. The ads will get shittier. The choices will become more monopolized. Look at the types of mergers and acquisitions the Dept. of Whatever is approving these days if you want to know what is really going on behind the scenes. Do something about it and contribute to an open source solutions that supports your ideologies. Do not expect corporate america or a start-up to provide salvation. Any startup that is a threat to telcos will be bought and shut down in months to maintain the grip. The internet will relentlessly march towards the misery of cable television unless THE COMMUNITY of apt developers provides free/libre/working solutions to real world problems. What are you doing about it? Who are you voting for that recognizes the issues? Who do you work for that is making the problem worse? Open access to free flowing information is the foundation of free society. The hug-box don't-offend-me mentality of this new web will kill innovation in the long run and stifle dissenting and boisterous voices who otherwise could have effected positive change on what the internet looks like in 200 years. Torvalds paved the way for the libre OS. Let's do it for the internet's communication medium from the H/W side. This means ensuring FCC doesn't get paid off to stop every attempt to do so. Think about what you've seen the software side of the internet turn into in the past 20 years, and mentally project how the H/W side is going to go with regards to control, regulation, and monitoring unless somebody develops a solution for distributed free internet so powerful and so ubiquitous that the momentum of change cannot be stopped by the voting shareholder majorities.

Thisi is what happens when you plunder alien technology from their crashed vehicles without understanding the underlying theories and principles before grafting it onto our own.

How the fuck is this +5 Interesting? Do you millennials really believe the US Gov is using alien technology in it's UAVs? I'm guessing none of you have seen the type of shit that passes for code in the government.

Comment separation of government functions (Score 1) 83

This is the government mind-set of us versus them. Rather than have departments handle things like investigations and smart information sharing, power brokers compartmentalize, see what other agencies have, and then decide they need it for themselves. We have dod/cia/nsa/dia/dhs/atf/doj/local police/state police/city police/etc/etc. Sometimes they play ball and sometimes they don't. When they don't or cant because of inefficiency or ineptness, they just buy what they want and bam, duplicity and overlap arrives and never goes away once it becomes status quo, forever perpetuated and grown as an expense-sink in the budgets. Small government conservatives recognize this insanity (except the douche-bag war hawks who give 'defense' spending a pass since it wins them nationalist 'murica votes). New normal.

this is one of those stories where if everybody on slashdot who fucking hates big pharma posted links on their facebook/twitter/g+/instawhatever, it could probably boil over to one of those flashpoint social media stories that gets the company to own up to being fuckbags.

it seems that's the only way things change these days...voting sure doesn't do shit...

Comment Re: How dare they? (Score 1) 451

Your sarcasm is actually true. It is our right. And you also have the responsibility of paying for poor decisions. This generation would rather hand over the hard choices to somebody else rather than risking the responsibility of making a choice themselves, or for that matter, being afraid of living in a free society where such choice are possible.
