Comment For the Knee Jerks (Score 5, Informative) 401

For the kneejerks, I humbly offer the original document this Senate resolution references:
https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/...

I wonder if the Senate overturned this regulation because they hate privacy or because of the fact these are "legislature level" rules being enacted by unelected bureaucrats in the last days of an administration that did everything it could to control its citizenry without the approval of Congress.

And this is to say nothing of the fact that Google and their ilk shouldn't be allowed to indulge in their raging data collection fetishes without letting the big telcoms and isp's wet their beaks. Right?

We see through your lies !

Everyone thinks they want to raise kiddos, until they actually have to. Then it's not quite all the fun and games those with kids attempt to make it out to be. They're just trying to trick us into joining the twenty year misery train they have elected to ride. Hahahaa. No

Who are you, Malthus? You must really feel strongly about this topic as you've posted a boatload of anonymous, high negative energy posts.

Anyway, serious question: Do you wish your parents felt the same way as you and would have acted accordingly?

Here's the text of this particular FCC regulation put into effect by un-elected officials. I wonder if these regs were struck down by Congress because of the desire to do away with privacy or because of other more specific concerns with what is in this 200+ page document.

Keep the those knees jerking though!!

...that Hillary allowed into her SCIF room. Since she was an Original Classification Authority (OCA), she had every right to appoint others that could see classified materials including the FAXes she picked-up. Republicans are complaining about nothing again.

I think you already know this, but for the benefit of others that may be inclined to believe your statement, you could not be more incorrect in your reasoning both legally and morally.

Democrats have not only recently rediscovered the virtues of limit government, but also the virtues of following rules?

That's great! And now we'll even see the US media bring back investigative journalism after an 8 year hiatus.

If it were to pass, and I doubt it will, a 15% US corporate income tax rate would likely cause a sharp rise in then a consistent level of corporate tax revenue that this nation has not experienced before.

In very simple terms: corporations now do everything to avoid taxes and with a 15% rate, many will start to actually keep cash in saving to purchase capital goods and fund future expansion.

Banks won't like it though because of less demand for their fiat dollars. And we know what kind of power the bank lobbies have.
