Some things are better forgotten than remembered especially when it brings you pain & suffering. The US Constitution places property before human life the reason why no one adheres to it in modern day real life mainstream America! Anthony - NY
Absolutely every "liberal" organization wants money from me. Please note that I am an 80 year-old prof emeritus who was never rich. I ardently defend all humanist and humanitarian causes, free health care and free education that most European countries have had ever since Bismarck (who was very conservative but knew that workers must be respected as human beings in order to work well, and I am therefore also in strong support of their unions. The victims of 9/11 rare now regarded as "heroes" although the Bush administration used that tragic even to diminish the rights of US citizens even further. Thanks to war mongers (like Cheney and Coindi Rice who sponsored torture) and the Supreme Court's support for G.W. Bush's rise to "Emperor of the World", our Constitution has become worthless. My country is no longer a real democracy. "Condi" claimed that China was spending too much money on the military. This country of ours spends more on these professional killers that all other counties combined. So why do we always pick on other nations as not being as good as we claim to be ? Let us clean up our own house and bring our Constitution back to life! Conrad - CA
United States differentiates itself from previous great powers in history in that it's "romantic", ie. it really believes in justice and fairness. It sometimes treasures its value more than its interest. This unprecedented uniqueness makes it a beacon of the world. People in every corner of the world who has justice and fairness in their hearts would love United States. This could also be the reason God blesses US. Let's face it, the prosperity and power US enjoys today doesn't come as an inevitable. It's more like an accident. It's more like God's blessing. It's a privilege. Don't let the terrorists destroy it. Don't let Al Queda win. The alternative is obvious: taking out the principles of justice and freedom, you will get a US that is no more differentiated from any country in the world, or even some developing countries. If you happen to come across any movie about the third world, you may feel how blessed you are, "Gosh, I am glad it doesn't happen here." Now spend one moment to imagine taking out the protection of the Constitution. You see it? Yes, it can happen here. Human being are the same, especially those in power. It's only because of the Constitution it didn't happen here. We have an obligation to create a better world for ourselves and our kids. Jeff - BC
I'm in the Army stationed in Germany. I recently returned home from Afghanistan with the 2 SCR. While I was over there fighting to preserve the American way of life it gave me great comfort knowing the real battleground was going on back in the States. While everyone else seems concerned with doing anything possible to maintain, you guys at the ACLU are spearheading the battle to defend, improve, and restore. My battle buddies and I applaud you. We try to remain as politically neutral as possible. Don't ever think we forgot about our oath of enlistment to the US Constitution. Joseph - FL
911 awoke in me a sense of patriotism that prompted me to join the military two years later. After a tour of deployment to OIF, I realized that the freedom that I was fighting for had been compromised back here, but on a more subtle way. We need to rejoin the country of equality that we had before this terrible tragedy. Martha - WA
It is time to realize that safety cannot be obtained without freedom. And there are three points that must be balanced--safety, freedom and risk. Freedom and safety come with risks and there is a dynamic balance that must be maintained to keep us free. Michael - OR
Throughout the prior decade, from the day I watched the Towers get hit and thanking the Goddess or whomever helped my 35(at that time 25)year old daughter arrive home from Manhattan 2 hours before the heinous atrocity occured, I could do nothing but cry. She never came home unless she called me to say, "Hey Momma-do, coming home to see you and Grams, okay?", I'd answer, "of course it's okay, I love you, be careful and I'll see you in about an hour and a half!", you understand she never came home on a whim but on 9/11 2001 she did. Throughout this decade I've watched our Constitution become decimated, the Nuremberg Principles ignored by the Executive Branch, the Supremes turn Corporations into people, watch the EVIL DOER[cheney] add an adjective to "Rendition" giving us "Extraordinary Rendition", Yes, Virginia there is a difference between Rendition and Etraordinary Rendition and I suppose 97% of these Imbeciles may have realized this had they been disembarking from their flight, grabbed from behind on that however many feet of carpet that says, "This [however many feet] is NOT a part of these United States, then become hooded, then flown to perhaps Syria, put into a ?cell? that's the size of a grave, shackled, beaten, tortured, (nope it's not "Enhanced Interrogation" ), waterboarded, bones broken, electrical leads attached to your testicles and shocked for however long they felt or until you confessed you were al Qaeda. We had the John Warner Fiscal Act of 2007 allowing Posse Comitatus and habeas, the Great Writ from the 13th century to be suspended. Allowing Martial Law to be declared in the US of A, meaning the National Guard can be activated and allowed under orders from the Exectutive to arrest Joe Smith from Green Street because, that's all just because. The Fourth Amendment being decimated thanks to FISA with Retroactive Immunity albeit Chris Dodd amended that Amendment it still was passed, allowing AT&T, Comcast, Verizon, they were the first 3, now whomever else they hire to tap and trap our phones and email, thanks to #43! Now that bush et al are able to have a warrant for arrest thanks to ccrjustice.org, ACLU.org and the Nuremberg if they put a toe in Switzterland they can be tried at the Hague for violation of the Nuremberg Principles, ergo no more lil' book tour. Our AG has not done a thing but others have and I hope I'll see justice done in my lifetime. I thank the ACLU and the Center for Constitutional Rights. Perhaps we'll see our Constitution restored and for that I would be truly grateful. Peace Rhoda - PA
I have no message, but a ten-years-lasting-question: What about WTC # 7? And just another one: Who, wherever he be, is authorized to define who, foreign or domestic, is the enemy? And where might he hide, that enemy? In a mountain hole, a desert compound, behind an agency desk, in an office, be it oval, rectangular or oblong, in an East African refugee camp amidst millions of starvelings from almost everywhere, under the roof of a Mid western home where a farmer supremely oppressed by suprimes and other mortal mortgages is waiting for his eviction by a sheriff busy obeying some incomprehensive constitutional law? Tell me, will you?! Rolf
I think that it is important to remember that everything needs checks and balances, especially government agencies. It has been shown time and time again that our government is not immune to corruption and misuse of resources. We have the constitution, and all the rights therein, to insure that we are all treated fairly and equally. To give up these rights, in the name of fear, undermines our great nation and leaves us vulnerable to persecution at our own hand. Whether or not we are afraid, we cannot let that fear cloud or judgement and allow our government to commit atrocities, no matter the cost. Because, the cost to us, as a nation and as human being, will be greater. I really hope that there will be a time, soon, when Americans will stop being complacent and content in their lives, and realize that, thought we think we are free, our freedoms are shrinking everyday. And, I hope that we will have have the where with all to realize that, if we allow this to happen to others, someday it may be us. Stephanee - WA
Shall I tell you what the real evil is? To cringe to the things that are called evils, to surrender to them our freedom, in defiance of which we ought to face any suffering. Lucius Annaeus Seneca Theresa
The working workaround for now is to select Edge as Fake User Agent in Fully Kiosk Advanced Web Settings. However no idea how long this can work. If Google really decides to block all logins in Android Webview there will be no workaround anymore. This is unfortunately something out of our control.
Fire TV sticks seem to work with Fully Kiosk (with the restrictions above) however you can't get them into the kiosk mode and some different restrictions apply as for other Android TV devices. You can try to switch off the Disable Home Button option and run in the kiosk mode "light" where the home button is not locked. If your device is not touchscreen and you hide the remote this might be a sufficient protection. App icons for sideloaded apps are broken on some Fire TV devices.
When we discussed proof-of-work mining, I said that crypto systems are designed to operate on consensus among people with an economic stake in the system. PoW systems demonstrate economic stake in a cleverly indirect way: You buy a bunch of computer hardware and pay for a lot of electricity and do a bunch of calculations to prove you really care about Bitcoin. PoS systems demonstrate the economic stake directly: You just invest a lot of money in Ethereum and post it as a bond, which proves you care.
There are several obstacles that may be encountered during cybercrime investigations. One such obstacle is created by the anonymity that information and communication technology affords to users. Anonymity enables individuals to engage in activities without revealing themselves and/or their actions to others (Maras, 2016; see Cybercrime Module 10 on Privacy and Data Protection for more information about anonymity). There are several anonymization techniques that cybercriminals use (see "Note" box below). One such technique is the use of proxy servers. A proxy server is an intermediary server that is used to connect a client (i.e., a computer) with a server that the client is requesting resources from (Maras, 2014, p. 294). Anonymizers, or anonymous proxy servers, hide users' identity data by masking their IP address and substituting it with a different IP address (Chow, 2012). 2b1af7f3a8
