Obama Administration Says the World's Servers Are Ours

fred911 A valid warrant (749 comments)

It will be interesting to see how the world sees creditability of a US issued "valid" warrant. There was a time when a stateside judicial order meant something. Probably before the time that habeas corpus had no exceptions, probably before the time that temporary exclusions to the bill of rights were waived.

  Kinda kills credibility, doesn't it?

Google May Be $1 Billion Behind In Tax Payments To France

fred911 If you legislate tax law (199 comments)

And a company follows the letter of that law, and due to the
way the law was written, a company creates wealth for their shareholders against the INTENT of your law, they did not break the law! Write the law as you intent to enforce. Don't cry foul when you fail to write proper law, or fail to amend your law.

  And I'm sorry for this (not really).

  Fuck the French anyway..

Many countries, namely Colombia and Ecuador have significantly less intolerance than Central and North America. The dollar is strong, food is fresh and cheap and the current political situation there is stable and welcoming. Why Belize over Colombia or Ecuador?

Cops With Google Glass: Horrible Idea, Or Good One?

fred911 It should be required (192 comments)

for use in an arraignment at the minimum. A sworn affidavit and the video evidence. it makes any look of impropriety or bias, out of the question. Why on earth would anyone that wants fair and impartial justice oppose this? Especially considering the question of incarcerating someone who's not yet found guilty?
