Guess he REALLY doesn't want cyber-security...

we really need a rule where you can't submit amendments that have fark-all to do with the bill in question. Yes, we get it, you want to raise awareness and foster debate of a pet issue. But other than the press corp, the 7 still living people watching CSPAN and Chris Matthews giant forehead, americans don't give a crap about this sort of posturing.

if you want to discuss abortion or gun control submit new bills and discuss them. if you want to try and tank/tie up legislation forever either rally the votes in one of the houses, read the phonebook to congress for a week or become president. enough with this idiocy

Reminds me of the other day. Some jerkface cut me off, ran a red light, and then made a left turn through five lanes of busy traffic, nearly causing a pile-up. My first thought was, "if only we could get a law passed defining marriage as one man and one woman, people wouldn't drive like that."

Also, when I finally got to the store, they were all out of 2% milk. Thanks, Obama.

It's true: the more pirated episodes of Game of Thrones I watch, the more abortions I have.

If I can beg the indulgence of you for the second I am thinking that perhaps this will be the thread which is from the beginning to the end full of nothing but the rational statements. However I wish to start the conversation of this doing what it is that is done by me which is seeing the issues from two sides. There are two sides of the issue upon which we are speaking. One of these is that the Internet would not be the safer place if the abortion ban was the enacted issue. The other side of this is the opinion of Mister Senatorium Michael E. Lee of the state of Utah which is the statement that there would not be the Internet security without the abortion being the illegal thing.

Okay now the first side of this would probably attempt to make the easier argument of claiming OH MICHAEL E LEE THESE ARE THE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE ISSUES. Well this is the route if you have the mental challenging. You see these are the potentially related things. So this side might wish to consider the role of the abortions on the Internet security over the long term rather than to see this for the day or tomorrow day. Imagine if the individual upon who receives the abortion removes the fetus who would grow up to be the hacker who would steal the credit card of you from the computer of you. So perhaps this is why you would wish to NOT ban the abortions and continue to maintain the cyber-security of the country.

For the other side of this which is that abortion must be the banned thing to engage in the cyber security this is what I will state to you. First you probably are thinking OH MEOW YOU WILL CHOOSE THE ISSUE OF THINKING MAYBE THE ABORTED INDIVIDUAL WOULD HAVE BEEN THE MASTER CYBERSECURITY LEADER. Well this is the excellent point but no this was not where I was going. Give the self of you the patting on the back however for this excellent idea. No the issue here is that 99% of all hackers on the planet are doing this in order to cause the disturbance to the pro-abortion lobby. You see all of the chaos upon which they can muster is just to cause the annoyance to the pro-choice individuals and the other individuals are merely the collateral on the loan. So if you were to get rid of the abortion then these individuals would focus on new things that do not involve the issue of abortion but would instead involve things such as the world peace or furry conventions.

So listen maybe you do not agree with the point of Mister Michael E. Lee because you wish to do the rolling of the dice to see if maybe perhaps the hackers will be those who are the aborted. However if you wish to consider the alternative argument of the hacker agenda then perhaps you will see this side and have the agreement. For me I do not think we should do the placating of those who wish to terrorize us. Also if we had the better cyber-security there would not be the HBGary LAUGHTER OLS in the future.

I would like the opinion of you on this issue the Fark.com website.

You are welcome for this.

Lieberman's cyber-security bill placed minimum security requirements on essential infrastructure, such as the power grid and the water supply. It might be nice to avoid massive power outages of the scope India has been suffering this week, should a cyber-terrorist decide to target that.

But "how things work in Washington" means that our wonderful senators get to stand on their personal principles instead. I'd like to see legislation that requires they are the last to get the lights turned back on.

Watch what happens when you delete two instances of "the" and change two others to "a/an":

Meow: No the issue here is that 99% of all hackers on the planet are doing this in order to cause a disturbance to the pro-abortion lobby. You see all of the chaos upon which they can muster is just to cause an annoyance to the pro-choice individuals and the other individuals are merely collateral on the loan.

Oh my, someone can type quite proficiently after all ;)
 
2012-08-01 04:00:02 PM  
It will work. If there are no abortions there will be so many people online in a few years that downloading even the grainiest shaved midget porn will take HOURS. Soon, we'll all be back outside playing stickball and dancing 'round the maypole.

Not only is this not germane to the original language, it's not even Tito or Marlon.

Also this. I guess that one's at least tangentially related though. Physical security is a crucial part of information security, but you're probably not going to see a group of terrorists abort their way into the control room of a nuclear power plant.

The original bill made a lot of sense, as it would have required power plants and the like to have standards on their cyber security and require them to be operated offline. The utility industries that it effected decided they hated it since it would be regulation and publicly said that they were against it. Then through sheer coincidence I'm sure, all sorts of shady riders start getting attached to it, all but killing the bill. I'm just piecing that together from Googling about it for a minute, but it seems pretty likely that is what is happening.

This should really be a new Bel-Air-esque meme.

"At work today I was in a meeting where we were discussing the implementation of a new remote support system. My boss asked me to comment on it, seeing as he knows I am critical of the ticketing feature being counted as a work metric, so I quickly responded with "Well, what does it matter? I don't have a farking ticket to prove I'm actually saying this right now, so fark it, horseface!" I was fired on the spot.

On the way home I stopped to get a donut to try and take my mind off of the situation. It was stale. Thanks a lot, Obama."

In fact, it may receive a vote, once a number of unrelated amendments are attached.
