    Congressman Lieu "Follow the Damn Constitution"!

    I know nothing about Mr Lieu other than he got this one right. Destroying the policing agencies arguments for private market encryption.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Oh, he nails that guy!
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    That had me laughing...

    LEs public arguments against private encryption is nothing but a smokescreen. LE will "spy" on all of us at will, without permission, as is defined in the constitution. Really, how many folks encrypt their data. LE counts on our laziness and LE will certainly not advocate that we protect our privacy better.

    I know the EPA has a lot of reach, but, getting into the predictive speller in your cell-phone is just too much! This simply must be reversed!



    Lemme guess. Starting next year, if we want to call or text, and know we want to use the word lead, we will have to send out a notice in advance, including a lead booklet by pdf to whoever we plan to call or text. Or, have a lab test and certify the word lead as intended in the call or text refers to leadership rather than the metal.

    Journalism majors choked on the conflation with "pled", the lazy conjugation of "pleaded".
