Snowden Gives Alternative Christmas Message On Channel 4

HansKloss Re:Slavery mentality in the USA still very strong (224 comments)

All it takes is 1% of surviving owners placed within state or federal structures. And you don't have too look very far. Just look at prominent politicians from South Carolina and their beliefs.
Somehow slavery legacy still lives on. Since physical enslavement is almost impossible, there is wide acceptance or perhaps general ignorance for various forms of enslaving fellow humans.

Snowden Gives Alternative Christmas Message On Channel 4

HansKloss Slavery mentality in the USA still very strong (224 comments)

Are you surprised to see complete disrespect of privacy laws?

Too many previous slave owners and their descendants still lives and have say in politics. It was serious error by US population not to charge them with crimes and let them keep the wealth acquired by using slave labor.
Today that money are being used heavily in politics to induce laws to enslave people's digital lives and treat us like objects: credit agencies, info-search databases, social security numbers etc.
Privacy is treated as something that can be converted to dollar figure.

This "slavery mentality" must change or eliminated before we can talk about keeping our lives private.

Ask Slashdot: Are We Older Experts Being Retired Too Early?

HansKloss Too Expensive (629 comments)

New trend.
Junior and medium IT positions are being replaced by students doing internships or minimum wage apprenticeship.
I noticed that working for US and UK companies.
Suddenly everybody wants to hire people fresh out of college or even before graduation.
Older workers are too expensive. It doesn't matter if this cause some hiccups for company, balance sheet is more important.

Should the US Copy Switzerland and Consider a 'Maximum Wage' Ratio?

HansKloss Slavery well and alive in the U.S.A (1216 comments)

Not going to happen. After replacing official slavery with economic one, group of American oligarchs is O.K. with the current status quo.
This type of mentality is still strong, their success depends on suffering others, in order to win some have to lose.
Don't expect CEO's to give up any gains, their families, often previous slave owners raised them to keep wealth within "trusted" circle .

HansKloss Reporting on itself ????? (156 comments)

We just learned from the press that targets and directions come from agency.

- find a disposable hacker to perform the "attack"
- report success
- ask for more money and staff

Italy Investigates Apple For Alleged Tax Fraud

HansKloss It is time to stop criminals. (175 comments)

Most of big corporations are infiltrated with criminals wearing executive suits. And I'm tired of excuses, "it's legal because our lobbying arm wrote the legislation and paid the right people to pass it"
Criminal is criminal! No matter how many laws are passed.
We all pay the price when money is constantly siphoned and siphoned to private corporations by governments sitting deeper and deeper in debt.

China's State Press Calls For 'Building a De-Americanized World'

HansKloss What to do with U.S. stockpiles of bombs? (634 comments)

Wishful thinking on the part of China. U.S economy is based on military industry well-being. What they suppose to do with warehouses full of weapons?

Notice the constant pressure by administrations to invade country after country to unload those bombs.
Recent Syria events are not helping either, warehouses are overflowing and we can be sure they will find a new target.

Oil changes wasteful and unnecessary?

HansKloss HansKloss writes  |  more than 5 years ago

HansKloss (665474) writes "Former Director of Castrol Netherlands Henk de Groot calls out against frequent and unnecessary oil changes. His personal car has already 350.000 kilometers on it and shows no sign of any wear. He argues that millions ton of oil are being wasted by "oil changers mafia" Simple gauge mounted in the car could trigger an alarm if chemical properties of the oil has significantly changed." "I still hope to be able to witness that we stop this nonsense," says Henk de Groot."

HansKloss (665474) writes "According to Wall Street Journal Verizon telephone company has problems with Microsoft developed programs for their IPTV set top boxes. "... Verizon encountered obstacles with the Microsoft code, largely because it tended to be too big and bulky to run in the hardware provided by Motorola." It is sensitive subject for Mircrosoft as they hoped jump on IPTV bandwagon and be major player in this area"
