White House Pressures Legislators Into Gutting USA FREEDOM Act

anarkhos Re:Glimmer of hope, squashed (284 comments)

The irony is that even though a McCain or Romney would be just as bad (or worse) we would at least have the Democrats screaming bloody murder over this. As is it, since their guy is in office they are hesitant to speak out against this.

...and vice versa

RSA Flatly Denies That It Weakened Crypto For NSA Money

anarkhos Anyone believe them? (291 comments)

Well, of course they HAVE to deny this.

But who am I to believe, the RSA or their long list of security hiccups.

Oh, and Microsoft denies this too. That's good enough for me!

Our fatherly corporate overlords would never lie for a buck, or $10M...

anarkhos Re:Morons in government don't get it (350 comments)

You're the moron!

You think this is about digital copies? This is about intimidation.

> Will people vote in politicians who will stop the wars (terror, drugs, guns, privacy)? Or are we going to get another Bush/Obama clone?

The latter. Duh

How Yucca Mountain Was Killed

anarkhos Why bail out the nuke industry...again? (340 comments)

Let the nuke industry house the fuel until THEY find a way to deal with it!

This is just another manufactured chicken little scenario, just like the bank bailouts. Create a crisis which can only be 'solved' with a taxpayer-funded bailout.

It's bad enough there is a cap on liability if they screw up.
