SCOTUS Rules Petiton Signatures Are Public Record

OrwellianLurker Re:While I agree that anonymity is a good thing... (780 comments)

Why should bars be forced to not allow smoking because the majority of people want it that way? They are not stockholders; they do not have the right to demand a ban from a private business owner.

Google Considers China's "Web Mapping License"

OrwellianLurker Re:Some Additional Speculation (133 comments)

I'm not going to address your entire post, but I would like to inform you that the $75m cap only applies if BP follows the minimal safety regulations. Also, BP bribed (implicitly or explicitly) MMS regulators with cocaine, sex, and more. And BP is a MNC. Don't act as if it is viewed any other way. Many Americans are stockholders. And yes, US foreign policy is hypocritical. Get the fuck over it. That's how world politics works. Hell, that's how politics in general works.

UK's RIAA Goes After Google Using the US DMCA

OrwellianLurker Gotta love chillingeffects.org (184 comments)

Look at all the information is listed on Chilling Effects. We know the owner of the copyright (Sony Music, Universal, and Warner seem to be popular on their takedown list), the song titles, and even what links they want removed. I'm changing my homepage from thepiratebay to chillingeffects.

Verizon Hints At Scrapping Unlimited Data Plans

OrwellianLurker Hmmm (319 comments)

I have an unlimited data plan with Verizon.... I don't even really use it very much, but if they kicked me off and started to charge me per megabyte I would probably use it even less... Fuck Verizon; I can't wait until I get to dump them.

Easy solution: store entrails of the last king/priest (whichever comes first) in liquid nitrogen and thaw them before use.

I love how this is modded +5 insightful.

2 In 3 Misunderstand Gas Mileage; Here's Why

OrwellianLurker Re:The question is still absurd... (1042 comments)

Uh, that's the most ignorant thing I've heard today. The overwhelming majority of people I know (including people who have relatively high incomes) don't always have to have the "latest, shiniest car." If you're an American, I advise you to stop hanging around shallow fucking people. If you're not an American, I advise you to stop being such an ignorant prick.

The Men Who Stare At Airline Passengers, Coming To the UK

OrwellianLurker Re:Oh well (468 comments)

1. I would never work for the federal government 2. I wouldn't want to work at the TSA for the same reason I don't want to be mall security 3. Shitty pay 4. The joke that is the TSA is only one piece of the overall Homeland Security clusterfuck.

J. P. Barlow — Internet Has Broken the Political System

OrwellianLurker Re:Only *my* kind of small/big government (773 comments)

Yes, I agree that libertarian idealism is naive and unworkable. I wouldn't want a libertarian in office who is making decision based his view of an ideal world. I'm not a libertarian, just a conservative who favors smaller government. Libertarians tend to take this concept to an extreme which makes all conservatives look bad.

J. P. Barlow — Internet Has Broken the Political System

OrwellianLurker Re:Only *my* kind of small/big government (773 comments)

Yes, but the argument itself is not hypocritical. Some people who have the same argument are hypocrites, but many are not. That's an ad hominem attempt to discredit an argument without even addressing it.
