Why are they so worried? It’s not like anyone would ignore the law.
I mean it’s not like freedom of speech is the law, or the right to bear arms, or freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, or due process, or equal protection, or the War Powers Act is the law. Wait…
Those things ARE the law and the Obama administration has chosen to ignore them. Well, what’s good for Prez is good for the people I suppose. Maybe people should consider again just nullifying Obamacare.
It is our right under the law. We as a people can just say, “Go stick it in your ear.”
Former Senator Chris Dodd (Joe Biden’s best friend) is now head of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and Dotcom (that is his last name) thinks that the White House and Hollywood are colluding to take down Megaupload and in the process seeking to deal a blow to the encryption community worldwide. Both Hollywood and the White House don’t want you to have any anonymity on the Internet. Governments and legacy media both fear encryption. For the average person encryption is freedom.
A new book by New York Times journalist (and Washington insider), Mark Leibovich, entitled This Town promises to expose the rather nasty underbelly of cocktail party Washington DC. Supposedly many in the MLG complex are concerned that they are in the book. There are probably many others who are worried that they are not in it.
I talked to a salesman today about a trip he just took. His flight out of Boston was delayed and the passengers on his flight were told it was because of sequester furloughs. 2 hours.
This is an attempt to make people with some influence (business travelers) feel pain so they complain to their Congressperson and money starts flowing again. (Like it’s not a roaring river even with the sequester anyway.)
The Obama lottery ticket, there are a whole bunch of people in Downtown Washington DC walking around with them in their pocket.
It works like this- Work in the White House for a few years. Cozy up with the president and David Axelrod (who has just recently cashed in himself at NBC). Found a consultancy. Then wait for the corporate clients to send you checks. It is nearly that simple as Noam Scheiber explains in his great article in The New Republic, Get rich or Deny Trying, How to make Millions Off of Obama.
