Re: “You Are For Sale

Nick,

Ha! It's actually a long list. I have found it best to let people do their own homework regarding this issue. There are many places that you can learn about the people that want to know about and control everything, everywhere, all the time. Start with EFF.

Just over the last few days it's been shown that a school district was secretly turning on students cameras while they were at home. You have to ask yourself why someone would do that without a legal warrant.

The USSR and Maoist China are two good examples of what happens when they get their way.

Jenna,

Blaming any of this on the current administration is wrongheaded, at best. There are people that have been trying to make this happen since the Clinton administration. There is where your wrath should be directed.

Re: “You Are For Sale

Thanks for the laugh you pro-establishment shill. The united states government have been doing all this and more for years, and you fell right for their wipping-boy for sensationalism and the vain attempt at being relevant.

Your internet history and data were never private, the american people were always the market, and you have no idea how capitalism works. While you're busy sopping your fake tears with obama's blood-soaked handkerchief, you ought to remind the people that this has been going on for decades. You all have done nothing about this outcome and will continue to do nothing but cry over your smartphones like the good consumers you are. You have no right to blame anyone, it is all your fault this happened.

Tomasik, truly one crappy Libertarian and geographic illiterate.

And just why did he desert District 91?

Re: “You Are For Sale

@oaktree and @datguy--My question was mostly rhetorical. But you've both zeroed in on the question of Internet privacy while Trump sets about to dismantle every piece of citizen protection and quality of life enhancement since the Great Depression. "Let's distract these morons by dropping some bombs" says the man whose penis resembles a Belgian carrot that's been in the fridge too long (FYI-they're tiny, orange, and slimy). Okay, that's pretty nasty and unbefitting for me. We can redline the part about his anatomy and go with "dangerous and insane."

Re: “District 95 Showdown

And I see that Tomasik says "I am a small government conservative." And a Libetarian!
So why can't he stay out of my uterus?
But his web site does have a beautiful picture of the mountains around Collierville.

From Schutt's page "Youre 21 years old. Youve spent your adult life watching career politicians..."
What is that, like 4 months?

Re: “District 95 Showdown

Oaktree, you don't get the whole picture here. Government shouldn't be paying for roads, or parks or fire departments or police. Free enterprise can provide all this. As for who pays for the wall to keep Memphis crime out of District 9, let's make Memphis pay for it!

Re: “You Are For Sale

Concern about how we got here is of no consequence.

Many have said this legislation is wrong, I concur.

One of our Senators staff sent me a note suggesting this helped increase American competitive advantage. I nearly choked on my wine as I chuckled. They are apparently unaware that all ISPs here benefit regardless of national origin.

Re: “Railgarten Clarifies Use of Shipping Containers, Parking Issues

I concur zoning here is weak.

They don't have a plan, they don't hold people accountable to the few regulations they have, and when people break the rules - they don't do anything about it.

Is that ridiculous concrete lot still there across from Central BBQ? Last time I looked, yup.

Mayor - time to enforce the rules and put people in place that are putting the city/residents 1st

Oaktree, in what world is $2,000,000,000 considered small?

And, "LeftWingCracker" is that the continued Democrat approach to getting elected? My candidate isn't good enough so I need someone to attempt to play spoiler against the Republicans. We saw how well that strategy worked for Hillary.

Re: “Group Protests Poor Living Conditions at HUD-Subsidized Apartments

Funny, 134 units with bed bugs a year ago. The past week a "bed bug" sniffing dog has now found a 90+% infestation and they claimed a quarter million spent on pest control. New Era Pest Control out of Mississippi is treating nothing but nonsense and conditions are worse.

Re: “You Are For Sale

It's important to remember that Obama and Bush II also set the stage for these eventualities, by creating a culture of surveillance by Homeland Security. It was only a matter of time before all capacities developed by our intrusive intelligence agencies became available to the highest bidder. This is how American technology has always been exploited. If we want to concern ourselves about 'how we got here', it is exceedingly disingenuous to try to pick our latest convenient idiot, and attempt to pin the blame on his weak ass. We got here, after both parties, and all responsible people who really should have known better, decided that all us plebes needed careful watching, to begin with.

Re: “District 95 Showdown

Anyone who doesn't understand that an increase in the gas tax and concomitant taxes on electric cars are needed to continually improve our transportation infrastructure, is either irresponsible or ignorant. Particularly if they think using a small budget surplus instead is a viable alternative. Such manifest idiocy betrays a complete misunderstanding of how budgeting works, and also the magnitude of the funds required to maintain our infrastructure.
