Comment Re:Laws are for little people (Score 2) 1010

Found it. And here is the full quote you cherry picked from;

Comey also said that investigators had used forensic analysis to uncover "several thousand" work-related emails that were not among the group Clinton turned over to the State Department for recordkeeping purposes in 2014; however, he said, there is no evidence that those emails were hidden intentionally rather than simply having been deleted in the normal course of business or simply missed when her lawyers were sorting her emails into work and personal files.

Where does that quote come from. It is not in the linked article.
This

Clinton has since released the bulk of the emails sent from the private server, although watchdog groups found 160 emails missing from the public release.

is the only reference in the article to missing emails.

Comment Re:"No reasonable prosecutor" (Score 1) 1010

From the article;

"All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information, or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct, or indications of disloyalty to the United States, or efforts to obstruct justice. We do not see those things here."(emphasis mine)

Swartz downloaded 20 million documents. I would consider that "vast quantities of materials".

I guess where you live cabs are pritty bad. Where I live it is very different.
I used to drive cabs so I know a few things you don't. I had to take the cab in every 6 months for inspection at an approved shop. Our company had to have a designated number of accessible cabs on the road at all times or we were fined. You didn't see an accessible taxi because you didn't ask for one. Yeah we were tired at times but were not allowed to work 16 hour shifts. I also notice you didn't mention the license that could be pulled for violations.

Lets go back to the no regulation time where the following occurred;
1. No inspections to ensure safe vehicles.
2. No licenses to pull in case of violations.
3. No accessible vehicles for the disabled.
4. No employment standards so exhausted drivers are on the road.
5. Rampant discrimination so certain groups can not get a cab.
6. Low insurance so accident victims are not compensated fully.
etc.
Do you have to wait an hour every time you call a cab? Doubt it. Do you have to wait an hour on the few high usage nights like Halloween and New Years? Probably. No business can carry the number of cabs all year to deal with those two nights and that is not an excuse for killing the business the rest of the year.
Regulations built up through the years to deal with bad actors. They exist for a reason.

How many "jobs" let you decide you don't feel like working this week with no consequences?
How many "jobs" let you decide on the spur of the moment that, because your plans fell through, you're going to work for an hour and make some extra cash?

Every self employment "job" has those aspects. There are consequences for not working. One does not make the cash and may not be able to pay the bills.

Uber isn't a job. It's a way for people who have a stable income to pick up a little extra cash.

I agree with you that is the original design of the service but there are many drivers are working 60+ hours/week and Uber is their only source of income. If they truly want to go back to the "extra income" model they need to limit work hours. The problem is that Uber would not have enough drivers.
