Re: In other news... (humorous news items)

According to your quote it seems like it might fall under "exceeds authorized access" and the object of the fraud was the use of the computer, so maybe? They should make a The Good Fight (seeing as we don't have The Good Wife anymore) episode about this. Colloquially it definitely exceeds...

Re: Police misbehavior thread

I don't think you understand what an attorney's obligations are. An attorney of any sort has an ethical obligation not to submit any argument or defense that isn't factually or legally justifiable. This isn't widely enforced with sanctions--often, it happens because a young attorney or even an expe...

Re: HR1313 - Workplace Collection of Genetic Information

I'm amused that I just got back from a conference where this topic came up at a few of the talks, and all of the doctors and geneticists were basically saying "Genetic tests for health screening have fairly poor predictive strength of future illness except in very specific cases. Family histor...

If there's too much child porn(or whatever) on Facebook, it's because they don't care enough to really do something about it. They could hire enough people to deal adequately with the reports. Instead, they put in an automated system that apparently doesn't work. That's not because they faced some ...

Re: Trump presidency

One was a federal department head handling classified information, and the other was a state governor handling not-classified information. Huh? Though some emails were retroactively earmarked as containing sensitive information, they were not officially marked as Classified at the time Clinton hand...

Ho hum. I'm sure that 'but that's different!' for some reason though. One major difference is that using a private email address for convenience is much more believable than maintaining a private email server is. I'm not saying that there wasn't a legitimate convenience issue for Hillary but Pence'...

Re: Trump presidency

Do you have any particular office in mind that is especially non partisan? It is off topic enough that I spoilered it but Office that shouldn't be partisan are ones that typically involve the administration of a set of rules rather than policy decisions although there is often some blurring of ...

Re: Trump presidency

If you're lucky, you'll unseat a Republican stooge at the county office. As someone who has worked with several local officials from both parties, please don't just go voting in/out county level offices based on party affiliation. There are many functions that should not be partisan where you want ...

They already do it is just limited to simple cases. This is even already done sometimes with motor vehicles controlling the max sp...

I suspect that a lot of it has to do with money. I'm sure contributions from big oil buy a lot more political pressure than contributions from big wildlife.

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Morris, there's a lot of things wrong about "Clinton asks Obama for pardon" to me. Why would you think she needs one? Her innocence or guilt don't really change the fact that a pardon would be beneficial. If there is a chance republicans will pursue her with prosecution for something it i...

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Well, I retract any objection to characterizing it as suppression. I've seen pretty long lines in my area around lunchtime and I assume by extension there are long lines over the weekends so I just assumed it was like that.

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Yeah, exactly. When one party has to actively suppress people voting in order to stay in power, it's clear that staying in power is their only actual goal. How can anyone trying to stop their constituents from voting possibly justify it to themselves any other way? It's depressing and disturbing. U...

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Sure you can. For instance, you could call up a representative sample of voters and ask them who they voted for any why. Political parties aren't limited to looking at vote counts for their market research. If you want to bring surveys into it, it is probably more strategic to just plan to lie on s...

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Well, here's the thing. A vote for Clinton better sends that message than a vote for a 3rd party. In the end of the day, if you're a Republican and want to voice your disgust at this year, the best way to do that is Clinton. Because that means I'm a "converted vote" (which means my voting...
