I have no words to express the level of derp that has become the war on drugs.

American government only exists to protect profit. I'm just going to start calling you jokers Ferengi.

Google painted themselves into a corner here. Once you demonstrate you can remove objectionable stuff on demand, it becomes rather difficult to rely on safe harbor provisions.

Aspiring Governors disease can be controlled but probably not prevented.

Petition your legislature for a law to exclude any elected AG from running for Governor.

You may reap a bounty in benefits: better rule of law, your state is no longer featured on Fark, the sense your AG is actually doing his day job.

Just another way they try to censor the internet. If you have to censor someone they have already won.

I know "swim" is the prevalent joke, but as evidenced by facebook, a better autocomplete would be "spell".

i like the yahoo answer (feelin lucky)

lol well basically black people are thicker and have a lot of muscle mass over fat which makes it usually harder for them to float. but some are fat and can float great. and also it's not true for a lot of black people like i'm black and i'm the 5th best swimmer on my high school team and i just started swimming last year. like it's hard for me to maintain a back float without moving because i'm think with muscle and have little fat lol i'm actually half black so idkSource(s):i'm a swim instructor and a great swimmer

There are people that actually believe that and Internet SJWs will probably be all over Google's ass in no time.  Just look at what Feminists are doing to Facebook...trying to create a "safe space" for themselves by stifling free speech that they don't like in yet another forum that was created by men (granted, not exclusively for men).  "Hey, thanks for building the infrastructure, now GTFO because we don't like how you talk or act."

I'll give you a point. The correct answer is "...type with correct syntax"

It doesn't have to be that way.  Government is not inherently worthless.  It can be good.

First of all, I think you need a prescription from a licensed practicing physician to buy pharmaceuticals online. I'm not sure. I think you might also need to notify your doctor. Prescriptions don't refill themselves ya' know.

The Bible (Leviticus 25:44) says it's okay to own slaves if they come from a neighboring country.

So according to those who believe the USA was founded on biblical principles, it should be perfectly legal to own a Canadian or Mexican.

So if we're going to persecute gays based on Leviticus, we may as well be consistent.

That's only if you're going to do it legally and ethically. Non-controlled prescription medications are readily available on tons of sites. Certain controlled medications are not much harder to obtain. They've been cracking down on this stuff for a while now. You used to be able to do an 'online consult' and obtain prescription online and get controlled medications from US pharmacies.
 
2013-06-20 12:23:23 PM
So in other words, this is just another case of idiots in power not knowing how the magic glowy box on their desk works.  Do they really not know the fact that Autocomplete results change based on what is most commonly typed? Don't blame google because you and your AG buddies typed a search term looking for lortabs a couple thousand times.
 
2013-06-20 12:26:40 PM
My favorite autocomplete so far: for some reason I was Googling the fabled Chanticleer pear, the tree whose blossoms smell like, er, gentleman juice. So I type in "tree that smells like se" to see what I'll get.

"Seman" or "seamen" are my two top choices.

I was a bit concerned that the proper spelling wasn't even an option. And I didn't think safe search was on. It's not like it's a dirty word; it's a clinical term. But I guess I'm more concerned that it was something that could be misspelled at all.

HAMMERTOE, I think the operative question would be "Why can't any people spell?"

Dear Gov,

Please stay the hell out of Al Gore's intertoobs.

The Liars are lying again!
One must ask why?
As usual, past behavior will yield the answer.
This lie is probably not the real lie that this Nanny is trying to foist.
Look harder at the legislation and you will find an easter egg of the real incremental assault on what Freedom you have left.

Thisbymaster: Just another way they try to censor the internet. If you have to censor someone they have already won.


The real stupidity of this false flag assault on Liberty is that these idiots still think the War on Drugs is a reason to do any farking thing at all except run and hide from the impending fallout of the Truth. They demonstrate a faith in the phoney baloney still working on the Public.
And the Public has finally stumbled on to the truth behind their illegal, profiteering, sociopathic War.
Politically, this would be a good time to shut the fark up, but they won't.

Holy crap, it's a thing.  i was hoping it was just an incomplete request for something like 'why cant i own a canadian winery' or 'why cant i own a canadian at halo".

thanks.

" last month Google announced plans to start censoring "autocomplete" results, such that "terms that are closely associated with piracy" don't appear."

I stand corrected.  I assume this is done by explicitly removing the term from the algorithm...

Namely they keep the first result from being 'Overpriced Media torrent' but if you misspell 'torrent' they will autocorrect that.

The AG of Mississippi is a Democrat who obviously remembered the course about straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel. We would really like to replace him with someone with a better grasp of the real world. It may take a while but we will manage it eventually.
