Wiretap Proponent Condoleezza Rice Joins Dropbox's Board

Wiretap Proponent Condoleezza Rice Joins Dropbox's Board

Commented Apr 11, 2014 at 17:50:03 in Technology

“Last month I renewed my Dropbox subscription for a year. There are cheaper options out there (Google Drive being far cheaper), but I wanted to remain loyal to Dropbox as I've always been a big fan of their service. But, I can't support a company that hires someone like Rice, especially when privacy is a major factor in using their product.
Obviously they are free to hire whoever they want, as I am free to discontinue being a customer.”

“I think it was Kang saying "what's your excuse?" when she posted her photos that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. There's nothing wrong with being proud of your post pregnancy body, but guilting others who haven't achieved your level of weight loss is mean spirited.”

“People who pay income tax may not like that they have to pay it, but I'm sure they are quite happy to have a job.
Similarly, people who have to pay for health insurance may not like what they have to pay for it, but I suspect they are happy to be insured. And if they don't want to be insured, what exactly is their plan if they have a medical emergency or condition that is very costly?”

“After coming out publicly and drawing the red line, he will be wrong either way.
Presidents normally make the statement that "all options are on the table".
If he authorizes a strike, it could set off a devastating chain of events.
Do nothing, after making a threat, and he will look spineless.

Is you are saying that Martin had just as much right to stand his ground as Zimmerman, then you are saying Zimmerman had a right to stand his ground, no?

“Give it some time and the people who put up the Ten Commandments monuments will likely volunteer to take it down as long as the atheist monument is taken down as well.
In situations like this, I've noticed many Christians don't actually want the same rules for everyone. They want special privilege, and when that special privilege is revoked, they usually take their ball and go home.

Even if they don't, these kind of occurrences are important. We have to remind the Christian majority in this country they have no more right to spread their message using public property than anyone else does.”

CyberAmish on Jun 1, 2013 at 13:48:40

“I suppose the old saying, 'From your lips to God's ear," really cannot apply here, but I hope you're right. In my experience, though, Christians are renowned for taking down the monuments only to erect bigger ones when they feel challenged.”

“Care to speculate what the reaction might be if such a scenario did occur? Or if someone displayed a banner that said "We can win without God".
Or if an inspiring verse from the Koran was displayed.

Now, you can play all naive and say "I don't know what would happen. Why don't you give it a try."

But of course you know what would happen. Christians would be outraged. Whether or not one is for or against displaying such banners at a football game, can we at least admit there's not a level playing field here so far as free speech is concerned.”

BarryMayor on May 11, 2013 at 11:16:39

“"Care to speculate what the reaction might be if such a scenario did occur?"

If the population was 90% Scientologist, it would be normal, much like a prayer is normal to these folks, who are almost all Christian of some denomination or other.

" Or if someone displayed a banner that said "We can win without God".

Again, if 90% or more were atheist, that would be normal.

If I go to an atheist convention preaching the coming of Christ, I wouldn't expect to be warmly welcomed. You have to think about this rationally.”
