CISPA's Author Has Another Privacy-Killing Bill To Pass Before He Retires

Holi Re:I always find it interesting. . . (138 comments)

I find it funny that it seems that most Republicans fall under that title. Maybe because the Far Right aren't the ones that actually get to define what a republican is.

Holi Re:The liberal gun blinders (138 comments)

How do you fight for anything. I haven't seen you gun toters out there protecting anything, I see you out there saying having a discussion about gun control being unconstitutional.

Stop acting like you have done ANYTHING heroic in the fights for civil rights of an kind. All our wins have been from NON VIOLENCE.

U.S. Court: Chinese Search Engine's Censorship Is 'Free Speech'

Holi Re:14th Amendment (284 comments)

"The US Constitution, and it's amendments, do not apply to citizens of another sovereign country"

I disagree, If they are on US Soil then yes Constitutional protections apply. Why you say, because the Constitution does not define peoples rights, it limits the governments power. Yes it only applies in America but it applies to ALL in America.

Remember according to our governing philosophy our rights are not granted by the government but are innate.Thus ALL people have them not just American Citizens.

Facebook Buying Oculus VR For $2 Billion

Holi It all rests on Valve (535 comments)

With the loss of good will from those who supported Oculus I am guessing it all comes down to whether Valve will continue to support it. Since it is common knowledge that Valve has a working prototype of their own, who thinks Valve will dust that off and drop Oculus support. I think it would be a 1 - 2 punch, they would kill any reason to pick one up and probably absorb all the disillusioned Oculus fans. Since Valve is interested in an open platform for gaming and seeing as how they have support for all the major OS's it should be and easy decision.

Come on Gabe, throw us a bone.

Facebook Buying Oculus VR For $2 Billion

Holi Re:That makes no sense. (535 comments)

Well iPhones don't have the processing power to drive the display, so who cares about the iOS store, as for the Apple App store or the Windows app store. I am sure Facebook would love to have a compelling reason to use their app store instead.

L.A. Police: All Cars In L.A. Are Under Investigation

Holi Re:No expectation of privacy (405 comments)

If a police officer followed you constantly throughout the day would you be alright with it? Because the courts are not, it requires a warrant, otherwise it's called harassment and is illegal. How does changing the surveillance to an electronic type alter the law. This falls under surveillance abuse, a form of harassment.

Surveillance abuse is the use of surveillance methods or technology to monitor the activity of an individual or group of individuals in a way which violates the social norms or laws of a society.

Google Tries To Defuse Glass "Myths"

Holi Re:Paranoia (363 comments)

And you are not everyone. So really your declaration that you won;t record others must be taking with a grain of salt as I don;t know you. Again its the perception that creates the impasse. Your inability to see that does not help your position at all.

L.A. Police: All Cars In L.A. Are Under Investigation

Holi Re:No expectation of privacy (405 comments)

>When operating a motor vehicle on a public roadway, there is no expectation of privacy attached to your license plate number, or your location. A police officer can >follow you around all day without a warrant, and run as many checks on your plate number as he desires, and make a note of everywhere you go.

Actually no this would be called harassment and is illegal.

L.A. Police: All Cars In L.A. Are Under Investigation

Holi Re:No expectation of privacy (405 comments)

Thats a lie that has been repeated so often that you have started to believe it. In a civil society privacy is expected even when we are walking down the street. How you say? Because in a civil society we respect each other and respect each others privacy.

Google Tries To Defuse Glass "Myths"

Holi Re:Paranoia (363 comments)

answer me this. How do you get video off the glass.

Oh thats right it's uploaded to Google. I for one would prefer that Google stop collecting (spying) on our lives. It serves us no purpose and is extremely intrusive. So when you volunteer to pay a large sum for the pleasure of working against your neighbors for the purpose of enriching the wallets of Google execs please don't be surprised when your neighbors push back.

Put it this way, film my kids, expect a confrontation, and then see how rough the courts are on me. (slap on the wrist if that)
The perception of impropriety is all it takes.
