Time to break up Wells Fargo?

How about standard criminal laws such as conspiracy to commit fraud? 'Breaking them up' treats them as a corporation. Why not treat/charge them as criminals?

Sorry Hans, wrong guess. Would you like to go for Double Jeopardy where the scores can really change?

Now what about the cities/counties that have become fed up with monopolies and duopolies and created their own municipal broadband, just to have lobbyists from corporate interests draft legislation that bans municipal broadband expansion?

The posit is we can only choose between corporate socialism or socialism. Why can't a city/county just open up competition and let the market build it out, tax free? Why can't communities be allowed to wire themselves without a government monopoly or corporate monopoly? I'm sure a market-based solution can be reached since Internet is in incredibly high demand now. The market can provide this tax free and much more efficiently.

Hedge fund Carlson Capital has a fund that's lost 14.2% this year because of bad short wagers on Nvidia and Advanced Micro Devices

That's not investing. That's gambling.

The scorching-hot cryptocurrency has tentacles that stretch into many different parts of the investment landscape, and some traders are finding out the hard way how much influence it can wield.

That's because these CC's are not subject to manipulation the way that are all central currencies. It's an actual marketplace not a rigged game of inflation to fleece the populace.

Well it's not a court of law so 'beyond reasonable doubt' doesn't apply. What do the terms of service say? It might be their call, end of story. The fact that they try to be fair about it and institute a checks & balance system is very considerate.

That said, streaming your gameplay with minimal delay can encourage trolls to troll.

Where do people like this come from? How can you go through life so blissfully unaware? How can you swallow all the jingoistic bullshit and honestly believe that you're doing the right thing? How can anyone possibly be that fucking dumb? And that applies around the world. And people wonder why I have zero faith in humanity.

Well said. I have an answer for you. Public (government) education and propaganda-filled mainstream news.

Just Cause 3 was a HORRIBLE disappointment after the EPIC Just Cause 2. This despite the fact that it played better, controlled better, had better vehicle physics, and pretty much every gameplay hook was better than in JC2.

Every single thing in the world was just copy/paste. Everything looked exactly the same, no variation, no cool areas to discover, no areas that were put in just for the sake of making the world look nice, nothing.

Total 100% failure in open world design.

Download it for free, play it tonight for a few hours, and you will have seen everything there is to see in JC3.

This. I found JC3 boring. JC2 is a blast to play.

Had to renew my license today. First time since the DHS laws went into effect. It was some crazy big brother shit: all my documents (birth cert, SS card, etc.), scanned into a database with my photo, fingerprints, etc. Surprised the didn't ask for a fucking DNA sample. We're rapidly creating a turnkey authoritarian state.

On the other hand, when I complained the woman said they nailed some middle East guy applying for a license using a fake PA birth cert in that very office last year.

Creepy. Fingerprints too? Wow. Our foreign policy is not questioned, no. We just lose our freedoms and if we complain we a fed a convenient lie as you were. I interpret a mandatory fingerprint as psychological warfare (domination). Making us feel like criminals without an accusation of a crime.

Question the legitimacy of the driver's license rigamarole. We have a lot of very bad drivers here who constantly break all sorts of rules. The license system isn't about the competency of drivers, it's about domination of the population by an ultra paranoid elite few.

There's a real and present reason why the founders despised the sort of system we now have.

Musk needs better medication. At best (worst?) we are many decades from the kind of AI which could/would be a danger to And frankly, even if it did cause some type of confrontation between AI and humanity, I'm sorry I won't live to see it.

It may be decades away, but it is better to act/regulate sooner than later in lieu of just marveling at our own advances, and then act when it may be too late.

It's the militaries that will develop the truly scary/evil AI and that will certainly be outside the scope of regulation. It will be the same entities you want to regulate who will develop the worst types of AI.

I've never heard a government agency say they have too much money and are sending the excess back to the people from which it was coercively taken. That said, this just comes across as begging for more money which government agencies do all the time.

I'd much rather see "Lode Runner: The Legend Returns" updated for modern computers. Don't make it 3D or anything. Just up the resolution and make it run on a modern PC. That would definitely push my nostalgia auto-buy button.

I think the previous post about this a week ago mentioned it has classic mode which is 2d, but upped the resolution and the same levels as the original.

Yes IIRC this has a classic 2d mode.

Net Neutrality is conjured up by socialists. It won't work. It doesn't solve the problem. Competition and and open market for wired internet is the solution but that's more ethereal. People want things written in stone which is a bad idea long term.

The solution isn't dumping money. The problem is the duopoly. There needs to be a legal architecture that allows people to much more freely wire their communities.

Yeah, these stupid laws forbidding muni broadband got to go.

Sometimes that might be the way, but I'm talking about The People doing it, not a government. Government is terrible at delivering services and they run up huge unnecessary costs often as a form of stealth cronyism. Also government uses laws to prohibit activities instead of implementing good security and procedures in the first place. I've seen this many times. You do not want the government controlling your Internet. It just sounds good because it seems free and people want free stuff. Personal greed instead of corporate greed is still greed.

The People can do it spontaneously and voluntarily if we are allowed and the legal framework is good.

How about calling it an Inadequate Deterrent that line the pockets of the Prison Industrial Complex, causing a cycle of escalating criminal element in society.

Prison time is a forced indoctrination into our burgeoning criminal class.
