I can predict he'll start isolationist trade policies

Which is just a lot of talk and not much else. A president isn't a king. He has to follow the law. Especially Trump, because he won't have allies in the press actively hiding information that might be bad for his administration.

that he'll prefer Putin to our historic allies

Like the current President prefers Iran over Israel and Cuba over the UK. But, again, mostly talk.

that he'll poison our relationship with Mexico

Our relationship with Mexico is valuable to Mexico. How valuable is it to us? Since Mexico has less to offer than the benefit they receive from our "relationship", they're hardly in a position to hold a grudge over some meaningless talk and the US deciding to secure the border.

that he'll cause a crazy debt default incident

Good. The last one of those helped slow down runaway spending. It was the end of the world for about a week though. I'm sure there will be a lot of pearl-clutching and dramatic gasping and head-shaking by people who think it makes them superior to the rest of us.

Is that sufficent?

I'm not panicked yet. Keep telling your stories though. It's fun to tell stories.

Fuck off with this. There is a point beyond which nonconsent needs to be explicit; sharing a bed is exactly that point. "Sleeping with" somebody is used almost solely as euphemism for screwing in our language for a reason. Allowing that kind of intimacy is already saying "let's do this." If that isn't what you mean, you have to actually say so.

I know, right? LEO seem hell bent on avoiding proper due process. The very idea of having to get a warrant to enter a house clandesinely, and plant a bug ( for an iphone, I suggest bugging the charger.) To collect evidence the old fashioned way instead of just asserting that nobody has any expectation of privacy, I mean, how will they do their jobs, right? (Sarcasm)

No, those nasty corps who are showing that privacy is possible through hard encryption are just evil, and helping the terrorists, I mean, the criminals!

Won't you just accept that hard encryption endangers children, and is evil already? It would make that DA's job so much easier, and then he could prosecute more bad guys!

Look at how she keeps blatantly lying under oath and being caught out about the email server thing and totally getting away with it when literally anybody else trying that would already be in prison for a long stretch right now. Look at what the rewards coming to the GA and Comey are then tell me they aren't complicit as hell. Have you even taken a look at where the hundreds of millions of dollars going through the Clinton Foundation are coming from (and why) and going to?, or the number of people that around the Clintons that cross them in some way and keep mysteriously dying?
I know it all might sound totally paranoid, but trust me, just do your own research.

Interesting point. It does seem that Americans now just automatically assume all these people are corrupt (which to be fair is probably a quite realistic assessment), but the problem is they have also become so complacent that they just allow people like Hilary to blatantly get away with it.

It's possible that in the future, Ms will monitor the loop back for such a trick, and have a failsafe.

Pointing it at the router however, has fringe benefits:
You can redirect cortanna's search by having a daemon listening at the router, allowing you to point her anywhere you want. You can selectively log, reject, or falsify the telemetry data your worstation (s) are sending to the mothership. You can host your own, better controlled and sanitized windows update vault there, and thus better control what kinds of patches ms actually can get on your hardware.

Ms has pushed this envelope far enough that there is now a real, legitimate need to man in the middle the update process, and to reclaim control over privacy. It would be a killer app for openwrt.

Funny how you make all these claims that are impossible to prove since your crapware is CLOSED SOURCE!

So, all we have is your word...the word of a spammer, that you don't use any functions you didn't write yourself. Yet again, silly arguments shot down without the barest effort. Once again, you resort to insults since you know your arguments have failed.

Also, it is rather rich when you call other's offtopic (AmicusNYCL) and troll (me), when you are the biggest offtopic troll of them all, proven by the mods!
