Clearly a communist plot. The areas without gay marriage create a sickle shape. And the Dakota blob is the hammer. Like on the USSR flag.

So I witnessed another burglary last night.

What's wrong with your area? Normal people never witness a burglary. The most troubling events in my lower-middle-class neighboorhood (classy mobile homes) were a suicide and, a few weeks ago, a cat kidnapping.

A cat kidnapping?  That's just sick.  As someone who's had their house burglarized, I'd say a cat kidnapping is worse.

Some lady in another street walked in our street, saw a cat she liked and took it to her house.

All disallowing net neutrality would do would slow the inevitable fall of cable internet. Fiber internet is the superior technology in every way and has absolutely decimated cable in every location it has popped up in.

It took six years to final get off dial up and onto cable internet. We also don't have fiber optics in this area either.

Most areas don't either, yet.

I know that's an economic heuristic device, but does it actually apply?

What is the common-resource being depleted?

I'm not an internet expert or an engineer so I have to defer to experts on this subject.  When I've heard them speak, they all seem to be in favor of net neutrality.  They all seem to think fiber optic improvements, opening up new areas of spectrum and various other technological developments will continue to keep pace.

Apparently bandwidth is being depleted, and that's why companies are interested in throttling and priority.

No. Bandwidth is usually not depleted, but big corporations likes to say it in order of convincing government to allow them to control what the people do on Internet (and so, allow them to sell to websites quicker access to their guests and slow access to websites showing opinions they don't like). It would allow corporations to influence freedom of speech on Internet by favoring or restraining access to certain opinions. In theory, a corportion could slow down access to all Republican candidates websites and speed up access for the Democrat ones.

In some area, like mine, there was some depletion of bandwidth a few months ago, but it wasn't due to the users. It was due to a quite incompetent ISP unwilling to invest in infrastructure until market forced them too (it had issues with cell phones capacities, too, it was impossible to use a cell phone between 4PM and 6PM because the outdated infrastructure wouldn't handle it). Outdated infrastructure which isn't upgraded for purely financial reasons is a big issue in rural/remote areas where competition isn't real or simply monopolistic.

Biermann is mostly right, but impestive and chose the wrong platform to talk.
Gyzi is mostly wrong, a old relic than Die Linke should get rid of and he also also chose the wrong platform to talk.

This is the right platform: it is the Bundestag.

No, it's a commemorative event to commemorate the fall of the Wall. It must unite the population, not divide it with political debates.

So, when commemorating the end of WWII we should unite with the Nazis?

Stop comparing apples and oranges.

Being a BLACK in the WHITE House.

Two news today.

1. Dean Del Mastro, Peterborough, ON MP (Independent, formely Conservative), resigned after being condemned for spending over limits during 2008 elections, for giving more money than legally authorised to his own campaign and for having cooked his books to hide those things.

2. Two Liberal MPs (Scott Andrews, Avalon, NL and Massimo Pacetti, Saint-Léonard--Saint-Michel, QC) are suspended from the party after two female NDP MPs complained about sexual harassment from them.

Democrats aren't aggressive enough defending their ideas and policies. That beating was well-deserved and will hopefully repeat until they learn and heads roll.
67  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Where Obama Went Wrong on: November 03, 2014, 10:52:25 pm
What's wrong? The strategy.

2014 should have been:

MINIMUM WAGE
MINIMUM WAGE
MINIMUM WAGE

and

Hitting very strongly Republicans for being against raising it.

I don't run around calling Joachim Gauck a right-winger, or saying that opposition to Ramelow = endorsement of the CDU, or other nonsense.



I admit than my messages on this thread have been wrong and silly.
69  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: German President has exceeded his authority once again on: November 01, 2014, 05:14:11 pm
Well, not surprising from a right-winger. Germany should just stop to pretend than the President is neutral.

Since when is Gauck of all people a right-winger?

Since he started complaining because it won't be yet another Grand Coalition. We all know it's the only alternative to Red-Red-Green.

You don't think the man has good personal reasons to be sceptical of them other than right-wing beliefs?

Yes, I'm not sold on Die Linke either, since they have quite unsavory elements, but the issue is the consequences of what he said. Condemning the Red-Red-Green coalition only leaves CDU and, so, it's a de facto endorsement of CDU, whether he realizes it or not.

She is slimmer than Quebec health minister.

But he's a guy so that doesn't count.

... I was in fact ironic, but the more I think about, the more absurd it seem that de Block have been singled out, she's not the first fat minister of health in the world, but for some reason she was singled out, is it because she's woman? I don't know, but it seem a little suspect.

He was singled out, both during the campaign and after his nomination.
