TESTEMONAIL:  Right and Discordianism allows room for personal interpretation. You have your theories and I have mine. Unlike Christianity, Discordia allows room for ideas and opinions, and mine is well-informed and based on ancient philosophy and theology, so, my neo-Discordian friends, open your minds to my interpretation and I will open my mind to yours. That's fair enough, right? Just claiming to be discordian should mean that your mind is open and willing to learn and share ideas. You guys are fucking bashing me and your laughing at my theologies and my friends know what's up and are laughing at you and honestly this is my last shot at putting a label on my belief structure and your making me lose all hope of ever finding a ideological group I can relate to because you don't even know what the fuck I'm talking about and everything I have said is based on the founding principals of real Discordianism. Expand your mind.

Yep. Big telecommunications companies have Dems in their pockets.

For you fans of Where's Waldo, try to find the spineless wimp Senator who's afraid to voice an opinion.  Here's a hint, she's about to get slaughtered in three primaries tonight.

you think maybe she didn't vote because she's busy rattling the saber for the primaries?


What does this mean, anyway?

QuoteStatement of Purpose:    To strike the provisions providing immunity from civil liability to electronic communication service providers for certain assistance provided to the Government.

it was rejected. That's good, right?

I_Kicked_Kennedy

Yeah. I just called her office and I was informed by a ginger-voiced woman that the Senator does not have an official position on the issue yet.

Oh? Maybe they should have mentioned that she tops the telecommunication companies donor list at $329,230?

No Cram,

The measure was to take immunity away from the Telecommunications industry in their cooperation with the US Government's warrantless wiretapping program.

Its bad.

I thought so too...

It means there was a provision to provide immunity from prosecution to the telecoms for helping spy on 'Murrcans.

The vote was whether to strike that provison.

The vote failed.

The telecoms are immune from prosecution.

One of which is in D.C.  :wink:

Somehow I knew this fucking measure wouldn't pass.

Somehow. 

Fuckin' spinless twits.  Honeyed and gilded with blood money.  Feh.

The government just doesn't work anymore.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize it had worked in the last 100 years or so? :|

Point.  It's still more satisfying to imply that it broke on my watch, somehow.
