  1. Guess it worked, because she vetoed the bill.
  2. Looks like they are emulating Turkey's internet restrictions... Maybe this is the start of a trend by governments with something to hide?
  3. What the article is saying is that the EU is not itself sovereign, but is composed of sovereign states. Snowden will have to pick an individual country to seek asylum in. If Snowden is returned to the United States, he will be (turned on a spit and fried to a crisp) pretty much done for. We're just supposed to sell the man out after what he's done for us? Some gratitude.
  4. The net was never free. Someone owns the physical hardware the net is composed of. For that matter, nothing is free. The Snowden leaks illustrated that the net is NOT free. My point is that the E.U. is going to have to build their internet from the ground up, control it, and regulate access to it if they are to protect their communications from the United States and the United Kingdom (and Russia and China).
  5. All states (i shall refer to countries as states for those of you in the United States of America ) are sovereign and equal, but some states are more equal than others. Who could be trusted?? Maybe France could bring back Minitel and expand on it...
  6. Let's be blunt: Russia or China can't be trusted not to have internet surveillance as it is, the United States just got red-handed caught at it. Germany is whispering in France's ears; France will have to take the lead on an EU based data network. Somebody has to, right?
  7. Awesome! LGBT equality is the new frontier, and we are experiencing its birth pangs.
  8. VKontakte claims it will crack down on its content, so we will have to wait and see. But I personally wouldn't hold my breath as the government is so anti-LGBT
  9. Either Star blazers or Battle of the Planets. Never was into all the Robot ones for some reason...
  10. What you watch in the privacy of your own home is none of their daggone business, dude. A man can have many sides to him and still be manly. Besides, Sailor Moon gets pretty (insert invective here) serious, dramatic, and epic, so why not watch?
  11. They're probably scared of a "Arab Spring" event happening to them, so they're taking measures like controlling the media. Turkey don't play. they always mean business.
  12. They probably obtained copies of the abovementioned operating systems, replicated them, and put their stamp on them, is it really a stretch to think they couldn't? Anyway, Kim Il-sung created the cosmos, so why couldn't they? Since the United States and its allies have embargoes in place against North Korea, but not China, (or Russia, Cuba notwithstanding,) I'm pretty sure that N. Korea could obtain the operating systems from either Big 5 member. (Disclaimer: This is only my opinion, not based on fact.)
  13. Something i think the world fails at: "When it is not necessary to make a decision, it is necessary not to make a decision." Lord Falkland (1610 - 1643)
  14. Mountain Dew. ... ... ... Okay, Coke. What? Mountain Dew is owned by Pepsi? ... ... Guess that makes it Pepsi by default. Darn.
