President Obama Backs Regulation of Broadband As a Utility

CHIT2ME Re:Obama (706 comments)

Regulated utilities have almost zero innovation? WTF!!! You young pups are much too young to remember when Ma Bell would charge you $2 to $3 a minute to talk to your neighbor who may have been just a few hundred yards away, only, they were in another county! I'd say it's time for you to update your knowledge base!

Washington Dancers Sue To Prevent Identity Disclosure

CHIT2ME Re:In the uk (461 comments)

They should definitely deny this guys request. What if thumping his bible is not all he wants to thump? Even worse, holy rollers are known to be, in some cases, homicidal in their intents. Personally, I couldn't give a damn about any strippers, but, their lives may be endangered by this request. Is Washington state prepared to assign personal body guards to each and every stripper whom they out? Also, are they prepared to pay out for the possibly many wrongful death lawsuits resulting from releasing such information to this kook?!!!

British Spies Are Free To Target Lawyers and Journalists

CHIT2ME Re:Whom does this surprise? (184 comments)

Now, I don't claim to be an expert on the law in Britain, but, it would seem to me that turnabout is fair play. I'm sure there are many in the media in Britain that could easily "out" several spy's identities and even home addresses. A few of these outs and a stern warning to the powers that be that more are sure to come if these people continue their assault on lawyers and the press in Britain might just change a few minds behind this assault on freedom! I'm sure that the "powers" will scream "Traitors!", but, the same argument could be leveled against said "powers". Press and lawyers, just remember, SUNSHINE is the best disinfectant!!!

Undersized Grouper Case Lands In Supreme Court

CHIT2ME Re:If they're going literal.... (251 comments)

Hey! Easy fix, just impound the fishing boat and everything on board until it can be checked out in port. Then, if the fish are illegal, keep the boat impounded until the fine, etc. is paid. People need to learn to heed the law. I know this is hard for /dotters to understand, but, it is what it is!

UN Climate Change Panel: It's Happening, and It's Almost Entirely Man's Fault

CHIT2ME Re:My two cents (695 comments)

Hope your children and grandchildren like cooking their frappe's over dung fires! What this world needs is a reduction in population. Too many people and religions think that we can just continue to breed like rabbits and we will prosper. I saw this coming in the 1970s and I, for one, am glad that I will not be around to see the starvation, depravation, warfare, and death which is sure to come! I also believe that the human race does not have the smarts or the balls to find a solution. But, cheer up, the earth will take care of itself, with or without us.

Ebola Does Not Require an "Ebola Czar," Nor Calling Up the National Guard

CHIT2ME Re:Politics (384 comments)

Actually, the President doesn't have the power to give more funding to the CDC. That is the responsibility of Congress. You remember them, don't you? The ones who have been on vacation since July. The ones who haven't done a damn thing since 2010. The Repubs (you know that group of hard core right wing religious nuts with a dash of anarchist tea baggers) who control the house are hard at work trying to scare the bejesus out of their less than best educated base. They need a Czar (otherwise known as a "moron manager") to soothe their fears. They will never believe that they are more likely to be struck by lightning (or beaten to death by a troop of girl scouts) without this "moron manager" to tell them so. So, here we are, with a total of one (that's 1 for the morons) and two nurses who where unprepared to nurse him safely, affected with ebola here in the USA. WTF, have we become a nation of morons to be ministered to by morons who have no other plans than to try to be elected by their moron base in the midterm elections? We really have to increase our spending on schools and education, because, this situation is untenable!!!

The Largest Ship In the World Is Being Built In Korea

CHIT2ME Re:Question (275 comments)

It really doesn't matter as far as the TV goes, the sailor will be fired and thrown off the ship in the next port. Thus, the sea level will drop in proportion to his body mass.

Apple's Next Hit Could Be a Microsoft Surface Pro Clone

CHIT2ME How far has the Apple fallen? (252 comments)

First, Apple has tried (But failed IMHO) to copy Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones. Now there is talk about trying to "clone" Microsoft's Surface Pro! I think it's about what I've said about Apple all these years. They really don't come up with new ideas, just copy and hype old ones that all the Apple fanboys slather and drewl over. The only thing Apple is good at is locking their customers into a walled garden and relieving them of their cash!!!

Trans-Pacific Partnership May Endanger World Health, Newly Leaked Chapter Shows

CHIT2ME Re:freedoms f----d (132 comments)

As a Pharmacist of 33 years, I think your ideas are great. Unfortunately, it takes acts of Congress to change the status quo. And, as most people know, Congress has not been doing anything "good" for many years. They are more concerned with how much money big pharma is contributing to their reelection campaigns or what big pharma company is going to put them on the payroll as a lobbyist upon their retirement from government. Of course, changing this aspect of the corrupt Congress will take......wait for it......an act of Congress!!! So, face it we are all f----d!

HBO To Offer Online Streaming Without TV Subscription

CHIT2ME Throttling (139 comments)

This all looks great! HBO and other providers going internet for a price. However, the cable companies will have the last laugh. Wait until HBO has their internet signal throttled just like Netflix and have to pay more (much more) for bandwidth. Until cable companies are recognized as common carriers just like the phone companies, they will still be in the drivers seat as to what we can watch.

Why the FCC Will Probably Ignore the Public On Network Neutrality

CHIT2ME Re:Fortunately... (336 comments)

It doesn't take torches and pitchforks. It just takes one bullet in the middle of the night. There are lots of guns in this country. I'll bet many of you own one. I'm not talking about killing people, I'm talking about killing cable signal amplifiers. You know...those big ugly amplifiers every few hundred yards on the cable tv/internet lines all over America? It just takes one shot. If the cable monopolies start to lose and have to replace too many, they may just figure out it would be cheaper to support net neutrality! Simple!!!!
