The Koch Brothers Attack On Solar Energy

TheAngryMob Looters... (769 comments)

You know, for people that calm to be devotees of Ayn Rand's work, the Koch Brothers (and the Tea Party in general) clearly haven't read Atlas Shrugged.

Using the government taxes and rules to crush your opponents (when you can't do it in the free market) was the main tactic...of the book's villains.

Nationwide Snooping System Launched In India

TheAngryMob Outsourcing Concern (98 comments)

So, does this mean that the Indian Government will get to see everything that's outsourced to India, including US Government contracts?

Basically, any corrupt Indian official (which apparently, there are more than a few) with access can sell trade and/or government secrets from any outsourced company.

Way to set the standard NSA.

Cops To Congress: We Need Logs of Americans' Text Messages

TheAngryMob Libraries Too (342 comments)

I like the fact that my library (and most others) destroy records of checkouts after you return a book so that the information can't be used in an investigation or trial.

Just because I read some Karl Marx, doesn't make me a commie. Likewise, just because I texted a quote from the Koran doesn't make me a terrorist.

What Will NASA Do With Its Gifted Spy 'Scopes?

TheAngryMob Budget Problems Solved (129 comments)

Just point them at key members' of Congress' homes for a while. Then, when budget reviews come up, NASA simply goes to Congress with a thumb drive. "We need funding for a new Mars mission, Senator. If not, we'll have to start selling some of these picture-filled drives to the public to offset the costs. Wouldn't it be a damn shame if certain images of that high school cheerleading squad coming and going from your house at all hours of the night were to...accidentally...end up on the Internet? That would be a damn, criminal, shame...wouldn't it, Senator?"

With $8.6M In Kickstarter Funds, Ouya Opens Console Pre-Orders

TheAngryMob Re:Controller Markup? (218 comments)

Quite so. I could swear it said $129 for the plus 2 controllers, but it does indeed say $139 for 2. Either my bad or they fixed it. Ce la vie.

With $8.6M In Kickstarter Funds, Ouya Opens Console Pre-Orders

TheAngryMob Controller Markup? (218 comments)

Anyone else notice the odd markup on the extra controllers? It's $20 per controller when you go from one to two controllers, but $30 per controller when going from one to four. Are they going to sell controllers separately or if you buy the 1 or 2 controller box, that's it, no adding on?

Iran Threatens Legal Action Against Google For Not Labeling Gulf 'Persian'

TheAngryMob Google.ir (246 comments)

My suggestion for Google,

Searches for "Persian Gulf" on Google.ir are going to return:

"Did you mean: 'How to violently overthrow an idiotic, oppressive regime'?"

Rhode Island Affiliates Banned From Amazon.com Sales

TheAngryMob The Looters & the Moochers (532 comments)

RI (and NC before them) are a looter's government, demanding money they haven't earned. My parents taught me that was theft, but the states call it "taxes."

These states are poorly managed and now want a chunk of money they didn't earn and have no right to to make up for their incompetence and stupidity. Good for Amazon. They can continue to "Shrug" as much as they want until states realize that being business-friendly means your state has money.

Amazon Cuts Off North Carolina Affiliates

TheAngryMob Re:Amazon Shrugs (411 comments)

Beware the looters.

NC has no right to the money, but are going to grab it anyways. Get the businesses to come to your state, not chase them away. Has no state learned California's lesson?
