Top Five Theaters Won't Show "The Interview" Sony Cancels Release

celle Re:Do we have reason to believe... (563 comments)

"but you should have some plan for keeping the kids from calling in new threats every day and shutting the school down permanently."

      I'm all for that. With the internet the damn brats could be taught at home and community centers for larger common needs(ex. equipped classrooms, etc) with less risk all around and no cost to anyone but the parents. I'd see my property taxes go down to nothing rather than shelling out thousands a year for other peoples spawn. But that would make sense, can't have that.

Microsoft Gets Industry Support Against US Search Of Data In Ireland

celle Re:Doesn't seem simple (137 comments)

"Maybe they should start at home and repeal the 4th amendment first?"

    Forget that, repeal the 2nd amendment first and deal with the civil war that comes in response. If the repeal wins the rest of the amendments will fall like dominoes.

Microsoft Gets Industry Support Against US Search Of Data In Ireland

celle Re:All current governments are obsolete (137 comments)

"all federal employees have to choose their plan from a plethora of private insurance carriers,"

    Well, except for congress and maybe the military.

You know this whole thing is about preventing U.S. access to the business records in tax havens right? Or other issues that businesses do by jumping countries to avoid government accountability.

Single Group Dominates Second Round of Anti Net-Neutrality Comment Submissions

celle Re:I'd expect Fawkes masks to start making stateme (183 comments)

"back off on policing the world, and learn to live in a fricking budget!"

        Sure, any time you want to cede world dominance to China or Russia just go ahead. The USA is the biggest bad boy on the planet and that costs money and has responsibilities especially if we want to keep it that way. Don't want the cost and responsibilities that go with the job of top dog then give it up and suffer the consequences of living under Russian or Chinese rule. Damn cheap, short-sighted, self-serving fools.

FCC Gets Go-Ahead For Plan To Expand Rural Internet Access

celle Re:Ahh the real reason Net Neutrality is built (156 comments)

"ISP: NO! We do not want to spend it. Screw you! We gave it to the CEO and shareholders so we could keep our bonuses."

        FED: -:FBI/Swat arriving:- -- In response to the previous and on-going investigations and your current response you're all under arrest. Your business and all your wealth(including personal/family/close friends/mistresses) is confiscated. Your corporate charter is revoked. And when the courts finish ruling the way we tell them to and running roughshod over your overworked court appointed lawyer we'll make sure your cellmate is Bubba/Bubbette - 'the wonder cock/pussy' for the start of your cell mate rotation.

(Bubba/Bubbette) This is the modern US, can't discriminate since many execs are now women.

FCC Gets Go-Ahead For Plan To Expand Rural Internet Access

celle Re:Yes! (156 comments)

"Barack Obama basically just gifted 4 billion in taxpayer money to the Telecommunications corporations."

      The president doesn't give money, congress does. Blame them. Like during the Clinton era when congress gave billions to expand the internet to schools and the telcos gave themselves a big payday when they weren't buying each other and many rural schools don't have decent internet yet.

German Court Rules That You Can't Keep Compromising Photos After a Break-Up

celle Re:Ramifications (334 comments)

"Germany has a stellar record of never actually falling down a slipperly slope"

      "Falling"!! Germany didn't fall anything. Like Russia now, they willingly jumped off a cliff ignoring the potential consequences. It took the rest of the world kicking the shit out of them to correct that decision. I hope you're listening Russia.

GOP Bill To Outlaw EPA 'Secret Science' That Is Not Transparent, Reproducible

celle Re:This sounds like a ruse. (618 comments)

"What it means is that if the EPA makes a regulation, independent scientists need to be able to look at the science it is based on and determine if it is sound science. While it can be misused, you seem to be satisfied with regulations being based on, "Trust us, we're with the government.""

      As opposed to "Trust us, we're industry". Which (government or industry) do you think would sell out their mother for a dollar?

Lawmakers Threaten Legal Basis of NSA Surveillance

celle Re:So what if Congress doesn't reauthorize it? (206 comments)

"Bush didn't have recess appointments overturned in court because he made them while Congress was actually in session."

          Congress wasn't screwing around with sessions when Bush was in either since they were on the same team.

"Bush didn't have his Attorney General held in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents."

          Congress was on his side and his attorney general justified all the illegal stuff released by Snowden that's coming out now and AG office were still fucking up in court on major cases. But congress after the 2006 elections did start nailing G.W. Bush's AG near the end of his reign.

"Bush didn't use executive orders to unilaterally change laws passed by Congress like Obama has done with Obamacare."

            You mean like extra-ordinary rendition, creating the very programs we're all ranting about, going around the constitution on just about everything. Remember Bush was doing all if not more illegal things than Obama is doing now. We just found out about them on Obama's watch.

"Bush didn't have his Director of National Intelligence perjure himself in Congress over the NSA's surveillance."

        And how do we know?

        Face it Bush was no angel and actually considering he put most of the crap in motion still rates worse than Obama any day. Don't forget to give a big 'sieg heil' to another Bush creation, your friendly Department of Homeland Security representative on your way to lockup.

"The point of view that they're there at work for you to hit on is inappropriate and unacceptable."

      No it isn't. Women exist on this world for us to hit on. That's part of our primary job on this world as men. Procreation is one of the main human drives. Stop being a puritanical hypocrite.

"Men have a lot of advantages that women simply don't in this area: they're typically less social than women, and they don't have to worry about getting pregnant,"

      You've defined male computer geeks, not men. And as a female computer geek, she won't get pregnant either.

" Democrats are only for wholesale violation of constitutional rights as long as it can be used to keep them in office."

        Like the Republicans weren't any more angelic when they were in charge. In fact they created most of the programs that are currently pissing everyone off at the moment.
