    https://tech.slashdot.org/story/17/02/27/0539232/questioning-the-privacy-policies-of-data-collecting-cars Nothing wrong, nothing to hide, right? Right? Well, here is the trouble with that. When it comes down to Corporate Profits vs your Privacy Rights, Im sure that Board Members will decide that your Privacy Rights lose damn near every single time. Why? They now have a financial incentive to find something wrong. And they will always leave you more than enough rope to hang yourself with so they can blame you. That Blame becomes a Rationalization for them to take more money from you while providing you with no commensurate compensation for the increase in prices for the goods and services you pay for. Would you not be pissed to find out that at the end of your life, their data collection policies enabled them to take hundreds of thousands of dollars more from you? Maybe not all to one or two companies, but the same way as your prices are typically different than your neighbors when shopping online. Beware Death by a Thousand Paper Cuts.

    My wife is deaf in one ear; has had ongoing ear issues since childhood; growing up in home with two indoor chain smokers. She's been prescribed that product in the past. I've read the warnings that came with it and researched the lawsuits. tobramycin is neurotoxic, nephrotoxic, teratogenic, and suppresses immune response to fungal and viral infections; and can cause 'irreversible neuromuscular paralysis": These warnings are in "BLACK BOX". A black box warning is the strictest warning put in the labeling of prescription drugs or drug products by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) when there is reasonable evidence of an association of a serious hazard with the drug. To each his own. olive leaf works; its systemic oral treatment; nothing has to go in your ear hole... plus its neuroprotective, anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, fights endothelial dysfunction, and attenuates liver damage.

    that's not correct CNN insinuated that St. Mary's had a pediatric heart surgery mortality rate three times higher than the national average. which in fact they did but... pediatric heart surgery can be much more or less difficult on a case by case basis; so quantitative statistics may not be qualitatively accurate description of what is happening.

    6 COMMENTS TAGS The Police StateU.S. HistoryWar and Foreign PolicyInterventionism 07/29/2016Ryan McMaken Early Americans feared the federal government would overwhelm the states with a large standing army and better-armed military force. To prevent this, many supported a decentralized system of state militias which would provide the bulk of military land forces within the United States. Over time, though, the federal government has increasingly centralized military power and diminished the role of state governments in military funding and planning. While privately-owned firearms have their role in balancing against federal power, the decentralized militia system now defunct was intended to play a much larger role in preventing the establishment of an overwhelming federal military force. The Early Years: A "Well-Regulated Militia"As originally conceived in the 1770s, the United States was a confederation of independent states assembled for the purposes of military defense. Thus, it is not surprising that the text of the first US Constitution the so-called Articles of Confederation is primarily concerned with foreign and military affairs. Most of the document deals with arming an army and navy, and conducting international affairs such as making treaties, appointing military officers, and funding military equipment. The framers of the document, however, were careful to allow states opportunities to veto federal actions. According to the text: The United States in Congress assembled shall never engage in a war, nor grant letters of marque or reprisal in time of peace, nor enter into any treaties or alliances ... nor agree upon the number of vessels of war, to be built or purchased, or the number of land or sea forces to be raised, nor appoint a commander in chief of the army or navy, unless nine States assent to the same. In other words, a super-majority of nine member states more than two-thirds of the states was necessary for approval of any military actions on the part of the central government. This did not mean the states were defenseless, otherwise. The document was clear that the states themselves were to provide most of the land forces: very State shall always keep up a well-regulated and disciplined militia, sufficiently armed and accoutered, and shall provide and constantly have ready for use, in public stores, a due number of filed pieces and tents, and a proper quantity of arms, ammunition and camp equipage.

    I think that Rights need to be enumerated specifically, even if not granted by any form of government. A Bill of Rights itself will not protect or stop a government who is completely intent on Tyranny, but is useful when smaller factions of the government want to infringe upon specific rights when other parts of the government are at least semi-functional. Once a government is entirely corrupted, any form of a Bill of Rights is practically useless as there is no one left in government to enforce consequences for violations of the Rights of the People. Sadly, I think that is very close to where we stand today. Most of our politicians get into politics with the intention of exploiting the powers of the offices that they hold to subvert most protections of the law in order to achieve personal gain. Some are honest, but those who who can be bought, manipulated, or controlled seem to have financial backing that allows them to crush any voted competition at every level. It was once said the best business to be in is the business of government. With that, you can pass laws that prohibit competition in order to entrench a status quo. Local laws can be passed that requires any new competition to apply for licenses while retroactively granting licenses to those already established. This prevention of competition prevents financial mobility upwards for people looking to start new businesses. Another thing that happens is our Bill of Rights is quite broad in its definitions, while the laws that are passed are very very specific. Think of Free Speech vs Hate Speech. Hate Speech Laws tend to be rather specific by identifying specific words or phrases which could be construed either in or out of context as Hate Speech. For example, one could talk about Muslims negatively in general, but if any speaker makes specific statements about referring to all Muslims as Radical Insurgents, it is suddenly prohibited by law. That is what the Chinese referred to as "Death By A Thousand Cuts", or the slow but cumulative incrementalization of passing laws that infringe upon Free Speech. Every year, we have hundreds of thousands of new laws that are passed that slowly but cumulatively infringe upon our rights. There are several ways to actively destroy Enumerated Rights. First is Passive. Ignore any infringements. Next is Active. Pass legislation that repeals Rights "granted". Things like "Constitution is SUSPENDED during times of Martial Law." Mistake there is Rights do NOT come from government. Leaders can either choose to respect our Rights, or to Ignore them, but do NOT have the power to repeal Rights that they did not grant. Third is Cumulative Subversion, which is the slow cumulative nature of most laws against individuals. Lastly, there is a BIG problem with Exchange of Definition. The two terms "Rights" and "Permissions" are literal polar opposites. Rights are Inherit, Permissions are Granted. Rights can NOT be summarily revoked, only ignored. Permissions can be revoked. Rights you have by default. Permissions by default are not granted until specific conditions are met. Rights recognize you as being Self Soverign, the highest authority unto your self above all other human beings. Permissions do NOT recognize you as Soverign. Now, if you look at the application of the words "Rights" and "Permissions" in most legalese today, you'll see what I see; authors tending to use the word "Right" or "Rights" when the word "Permission" should have been used. Such as "we hereby grant you the right to observe the material contained herein, but do not grant you the right to transfer said right to any other party". And for the record, LICENSE means Permission. Again, Rights are NOT granted, they are INHERIT with the human condition as they do not come from other men.
