The Department of Homeland Security Needs Its Own Edward Snowden

rockabilly Re:i bet (190 comments)

There's just something funny about the idea that our civilian population needs to create an informal spy agency to help it spy on its own government - that's essentially what we're proposing here.

Let me make this perfectly clear. There is not a single fucking thing about that proposition that is funny whatsoever.

Those who died for our freedoms we're losing aren't laughing.

I think he said it rhetorically.

Rand Paul and Silicon Valley's Shifting Political Climate

rockabilly Re:Silicon Valley is officially old (533 comments)

Chinese Professor Sues Google, Yahoo Over Search Exclusion

rockabilly I agree to this (147 comments)

...But I also agree to whomever said it before me (if someone actually did) that it is not the company's fault for the filtering - its the fault of the government (law). This guy is suing the wrong parties. He should be suing the party who enacted the law.

I feel for Google and Yahoo in this instance. Why should they spend thousands of dollars in legal fees when the actions are out of their control?

rockabilly rockabilly writes  |  more than 6 years ago

rockabilly writes "A mandatory University of Delaware program requires residence hall students to acknowledge that "all whites are racist" and offers them "treatment" for any incorrect attitudes regarding class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality they might hold upon entering the school, according to a civil rights group.

The "education" regarding racism is just one of the subjects that students are required to adopt as part of their University of Delaware experience... Full story here"
