Comment Re:What if the house had a sign out front (Score 1) 80

Don't get me wrong I am a 2nd Amendment advocate but I don't let that blind me. Burglars specifically target homes with guns and you are putting a bulls eye on your home if you put a sign like this up (large ranches excluded because trespassers are a different ballgame). Burglars can be smart enough to watch the house and see the schedule people keep. Walk quietly and carry a big boomstick.

Okay maybe not parody. I'd still argue it is parody of a sardonic sort, but maybe instead it is an abstracted satire. A commentary on the power players of the power rangers brand and how they will be as brutal as possible in taking anything down that even hints at being a derivative work of power rangers.

2 items. A driver's license is state property. How does it affect the ability of LEO to interact with your phone. There are laws in certain states that say if you have your phone on your person and are being searched that the phone contents are fair game to be 'rifled' through. If on the other-hand your phone is packed in a bag or in the glove box the phone is not on your person and can not be searched without a warrant. The act of NFCing your phone means it is on your person and you leave yourself open. No thanks, I like to compartmentalize my information as much as possible.

The Geology of each area is different so it's not really helping the Chinese with anything their scholars don't already know. The drilling tech hasn't changes too much in the past 10 years. The main difference is we frack and drill as we go instead run a huge frack job all at once (This means less waste and burn off). The main harm I think that can be done is watching land and jumping in on "standing titles". This is where a broker or company puts together 40 acres of land titles in a somewhat consolidated manner before the drilling can begin. By tieing up strategic strips of land they can jack up the price and make money as well as make the costs higher for us and dampen the attractiveness of our export prices.
