What? Comics don't cost 25 cents any longer? The next thing you will tell me is that Playboy cost more than a $1.
are on the march. Dr. Josef Goebbels would be proud of you.
But Your Honor, I never put my hands on that box of Cheerios. ;)
Thanks RonM. To extend it further, if the government patents than no other entity, corporation or individual, can patent it for their own profit. A profit based on research paid for by all of us.
I've read through 43 messages and I've yet to see why this will never happen. Why? "BECAUSE IT IS TOO FREAKING DANGEROUS!" States and municipalities are falling all over them selves to band texting while driving. There are already laws on the books about video in the front of cars. There is no way that this is going to be allowed unless the TV tuner is automatically shutdown when the car is moving. If that is the case then the phone/TV is useless for a large majority of the time.
Now lets look at other places where it could be used. Do you think your boss will be happy if you are watching TV on the job? Or you teacher if you are in school? How about walking into someone or something while watching? The Playboy channel while in church would go over really big with the Mrs. :)
Come to think of it I could do a lot of this on my Droid right now but I'm not.
This is what happens when people give-up their right to "directly" elect a governing body.

Dad, GRHS, was with the 2nd Marine Division during WWII. He never did like you guys to the day he died. So in his honer and because of this collection BS I'm letting the grass grow around my house.

When the NCAA gets finished with USC over the Reggie Bush violations they are not going to be much of a sports school for some time to come.
61 yrs old, on Facebook, got my first PC in 1982, was online from Jan 83 to date, ran my own BBS for years. Built my first TV when I was 16 and can't count how many PCs I've put together. My kids come to me for help.
Protest groups? You have no idea of what protesting is until you stand across from a bunch of National Guard weekend worriers with fixed bayonets while you are protesting the war and the draft.
Don't make broad statements kid...
If I wanted to make shirts showing an alligator ripping apart a cat in a bowl of sugar I would have to get permission from UC and have to pay them a fee? :)
This adds new meaning to "They can't even give their tickets away" here in the US.
Now please tell me again why the Brits do not need a written Constitution?
is why the IRS, here in the US, does not investigate the accounting practices of the recording and the movie industries. If, as numerous stars in both fields have complained, that the accounting practices are cheating them out of money then one would think that the government is also being cheated.
By count I get 61 Italian governments since WW2. That plus 2 Republics. BTW with the exception of Nixon resignation and JFKs assignation all of our presidential changes have been due to a vote on a scheduled date.
Now Italy has had how many governments that lasted over a year? Love all those 11 and 12 day ones.
Happy my grandparents left....
The "University of Texas" is a state institution and thus the building is owned by all the people of Texas. So in my non lawyer way of thinking UT needs to send a check to every citizen of Texas for his/her portion of the fee.
While reading Kimball's comment I could not help but think of the first Mac commercial. Is Christopher Kimball the guy on the big screen? Google/internet/Twitter etc is the hammer...
Power to the people!
The Olympia Brewing Company and its Olympia Beer. Wonder if the IOC/USOC wants to get into a barroom brawl?
Then there is Olympia Snow Senator from Maine.
How about the USS Olympia (SSN 717)Los Angeles class attack sub?
And on and on....
Texas, let it go own its own.
