I haven't met any terrorist. Not that I know:)

So then why are you surprised that people who actually knew the guy mention some of the more positive aspects of what he was in life.

Don't forget, no one is every purely evil in every aspect of his being. Such villains you will only find in fiction.

Nazi's in The Extermination Camps, qualify?

President has no authority to Declare War.

Yes he does for at least 90 days. In a nuke world that is forever. Perhaps you should learn some of what powers government has.

"Declare War", a Constitutional Term and Specific meaning, does not mean Wage War.

The '90 Day Congressional Authority' is about Waging War, not Declaring War. Which is an entirely another level, concerning 'Treaty's and Obligations'.

The USA's last Declared War, Constitutionally Declared by Congress, was WWII.

The headline "FCC votes to classify Internet as a public utility" is posted here.

That is Net Neutrality wins for now.

This is a big win for us crunchers in particular and consumers in general.

We'll see if this favorable FCC ruling survives an assault from Big Media. For example the president of AT&T has threatened to sue.

Since you are for this Act, and have read it, of course:

Any there any 'Details' you might Question?

What are they?


I think the tough part to handle administratively ("enforce") would be the incomplete application of Title II. That is, the FCC has decided to pick and choose what to enforce. Indeed, this may be enough for the coming court challenges to be successful.

However, stepping back, looking at the big picture, I go back to the old Part 15 which included the term "Public convenience and necessity." This phrase was dropped in these latter years, in my opinion to the detriment of the public interest. Treating the net as a utility is right it seems to me. Under the concept of public convenience and necessity a given utility can grow large in power but be regulated to not exploit the customer base. The regulatory goal is to optimize the valuable shared resource for the user base, spreading access broadly across region and demographic. Thus the asset contributes to the improvement and advancement of society and so the benefits do not so narrowly accrue to the utility alone.

Basically agree with you, but...

My problem with this, and other related issues, is this.

With the FCC's Interpretation of Title II, probably subjected to successful court challenges. The Good, will be thrown-out, with the Bad.

This is why I believed any Significant changes should/must have been subjected to Long and Public review.

Besides the mistakes, and increasing blunders: Their level of Professional Journalism has suffered over the past couple of years.

I think we can see that all over the world these days. With the modern internet sources of instant information taking over, traditional media and newsprint are dying out. Hence standards are dropping in the struggle to remain in business.

CNN is the Cable News Network. I think the word "cable" gives the game away. Reuters and usually the BBC are trusted sources of fairly accurate unbiased news.

Agree about BBC and Reuters.

Have The New York Times delivered to my home for over 40 years. It is my 'First Read' of the day.

With great regret: Their professionalism has also eroded over the past few years.

Does any cop in the States have any common sense?

Common sense is dead cop, they intentionally train it out of them.

With some of the stories, you sometimes have to wonder if some of the police have actually been trained at all. And that seem to assume people are guilty before checking any facts.

Whatever happened to habeas corpus.

There are many, many, many PD's in The USA. With Different Training, Different Standards, Different Laws, etc.

And?






That may explain but it does NOT EXCUSE!

Who excused anything?

It was the ridiculous accusation(s) that Most, or a large percentage of Professors are... Because last year X Number Committed something negative.
You babel.
Just change Professor to Cop. Same Unthinking.

You babel

Not going to work. Do you understand?

Answer: No.

I, and other's, do thank you for emphasizing, by repeating them, my Idea's.

We do find your silly attacks very illuminating.

We do thank you.

:) :) :)

Professors don't kill & most think.

OK to Murder.

Change to RAPE. Most, or a large percentage of Professors...

Of the 780,000 cops in The USA: How many cops do you know, or worked with? How many don't think?

Not correct, because most people don't have the education to make an informed opinion.

No... Your Education [sic] does not make you Superior to anyone.

You are showing Elitists Superiority at its worst.

What do you 'think' of, and describe The People?

The Masses, Peasants, The Great Unwashed, etc. Probably something negative. Who need Better Educated (AKA Superior) People, like you, to make their lives better, and STOP them from...

I thought we had evolved from this primitive thinking.

I was stating a fact not an opinion.

I know you REALLY believe that.

Very sad.

Three (3) People make this Enormous Change?


As little as 1 person has made major changes in recent US history. We give the President the power to declare war, and send off our young to be killed in the name of Country and the God that doesn't exist.

President has no authority to Declare War.

He can engage US Troops, and as Lincoln, as a First (and Last) Term Congressman discovered (Interesting History), Congress will not 'De-Fund', or Stop a War. Ford was the exception.

RE: Net Neutrality Part Deux - ALL Hail The King. He will save us. Except if he is a Republican.

NOTE: Nothing has really changed. This will be in the Courts for many, many, many Years.

And if the Republicans win The White House...

Is the man right?

Maybe yes, maybe no.

Three (3) People make this Enormous Change?

These Proposals, Published in its Entirety (The Devil is in the Details), should have been debated. By Media, Blogs, Elected Officials, etc., over a long period.

What were these Three (3) people afraid of? Why didn't they Publish ALL the Details, months prior?

If The West is also having problems...

What has happened, always in history, will also happen.

Thus we are creating Biblical wars...

Revolutionary Thought!

Deliberate Civil Disobedience comes with consequences.

Where's the Tea?

On your doorstep!

Protest Party

So? I think they are (Choose the Negatives)

It's a very Large, and Diversified Country.

They just Counter Balance the Deranged, Wannabe Controller, Left.

Maybe we should take all the Tea Party Types, and The Left, to a Deserted Island. Where they can shout their gibberish at each other, and leave us alone.

This would then be a better place.

What deception?

Anyway... Just give people the information, and they make a good or bad choice.

Correct?
