Pretty amazing to write a song called "This Land Is Your Land" about a colonized country...
The best part is that the guy who wrote it gets called a Communist. - Victor Ganata
As if there is such a thing as non-colonized country. - настероид
Some are more obviously colonized than others. - Victor Ganata
Sounds like Turks, Arabs, Chinese, Japanese etc etc are "non-obvious colonizers". Interesting. - настероид
Maybe it's only bad when Europeans colonize some territories, and it's perfectly normal for others, though. - настероид
Well, as far as I know, no other country has a song entitled "This Land is Your Land" written about it. Given this country's well-known genocidal and often virulently anti-immigrant history, it does seem a bit ironic. - Victor Ganata
People on this planet used to kill some other people, and dislike immigrants, yes. - настероид
Kinda everywhere - Ivan Crema from Flucso
Which in itself is ironic because except for the Native Americans who were slaughtered in the name of colonization, this country is comprised entirely of immigrants and their descendants. - Victor Ganata
The Native Americans weren't immigrants who slaughtered others? Hmm. - настероид
Someone had to be first. - Victor Ganata
And he was slaughtered, of course. - настероид
Don't get me wrong, I don't think slaughtering is necessarily the problem. It's slaughtering in the name of civilizing and liberating the people you are slaughtering that is a bit ironic. - Victor Ganata
The English pushed the Irish to the New World where the Irish pushed the Indians to some mountains and wastelands; and the others pushed and were pushed too. Nothing special. - настероид
Sure, it's the same old story. This is why the belief in American Exceptionalism is also ironic. - Victor Ganata

There's colonization and then there's colonialism. ;) - Victor Ganata
Moving vs moving in. - Pete
Oddly, Victor, you seem to be proclaiming American Exceptionalism--that American colonialism is somehow exceptionally brutal and awful compared to all the rest. Hard case to make. - Walt Crawford
No, I'm saying that the things that we claim to be exceptional in—welcoming immigrants, furthering the cause of liberty and human rights, being a beacon of Western Civilization, etc.—are kind of ironic given our history (and our current events). - Victor Ganata
Well, to be fair, birthright citizenship is a pretty rare thing in the world. - Andrew C (✔)
Anyway, Guthrie does get criticized for sympathizing with the undocumented and for championing welfare recipients. - Victor Ganata
They do sing "This Land" at Indian Casinos I frequent... #gettingeven - WarLord

I have consistently said Google Glass (in the current form) was a hard sell. Pure tech isn't enough. Things need a soul. Plus, privacy.
Plus, a non-ridiculous price. - Andrew C (✔)
Plus of course not making you look like an utter dork #inthshower - WarLord
The price is really the clincher. Most people won't put down US$1,500 for what is basically a peripheral for your phone. It needs to come down to the US$250 range and then it might have a chance. - Jason Huebel
But Google always said they kept the price artificially high on purpose. It was never meant to go mainstream in its current form. - Jason Huebel
Jason, I agree with you but it was certainly evangelised as such. Glass was a beta that got out of Google's hands and they didn;t do that much to try and pull it back in. Google may have dropped the ball but the Glassholes are the ones who stomped it into a million pieces. - Johnny
The interesting question to me: Besides search has Google had a real home run? - WarLord
gmail? Android? I guess Android is like a triple: massive market share but weak monetization. - Andrew C (✔)

Your Next Car May Not Have a Spare Tire - Consumer Reports News - http://www.consumerreports.org/cro...
Your Next Car May Not Have a Spare Tire - Consumer Reports News
"Most car buyers aren’t in the habit of checking for a spare while they’re kicking tires. But if you’re in the market for a new car, it might be worth a peek in the trunk." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
I noticed this when I went to the auto show recently and was very surprised by the lack of spare tires. - Amit Patel
messed up. - Big Joe Silence
The RAV4 doesn't have one. The erasing I've heard is with the just it time repair services and puncture safe tires there's no reason to have the overhead. - Todd Hoff
Unless you are (on your way to Las Vegas) In a small town in Colorado that doesn't have a tire in stock and it takes 3 days from Denver to get your replacement tire.... #actualstory - WarLord
Yeah, we went in to get tires Friday... have to go back Monday... - Alix May
I often drive out in the wilderness and not just on major highways so this is something I need to look at when buying a car. - Amit Patel
That's why it wouldn't work for us either. - Todd Hoff
Yeah, this is topic sparks spirited office debate from time to time. But with most of our buyers generally coming from urban markets, the availability of roadside assistance, and the fact that most people *don't know how to even change a tire*, I think the spare tire will fade from existence. Though I have no clue of the glide path. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Yeah, I think spare tires probably are unnecessary for most people. Run-flats might be ideal once they can achieve comfort and efficiency. - Amit Patel
It won't matter soon because we'll have hovercars in Oct 2015. I saw it on the documentary "Back to the Future". Where we're going we don't need tires. - Amit Patel
Powered by clean fusion! - Big Joe Silence from iPod
The Volt I leased in June doesn't have a spare. It has a complicated 'tire inflation device' that includes 'green slime' puncture filler, and if that doesn't work it has OnStar 24/7. All that is fine for urban life, but I was a tad bit nervous this summer driving thru Nevada to get to Zion... Even the OnStar signal coverage was hard to come by out there. - Ken Gidley

I only today discovered/realized (thanks to Stephan Planken) that a lot of the people here on FF are also on Twitter. I am on Twitter but I treat it completely separately from my FF posts. Most things I post on FF and not on Twitter. Those Twitter people are missing out ;)
Most of my posts are in parallel between Twitter and FF but the 140 sped limit means FF gets my longer posts #maybenotbetterjustlonger - WarLord
I'm on Twitter, except not really. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I usually cross-post automatically to Twitter, FriendFeed, and Facebook because I have no idea what will wind up being interesting to each group, and I want to talk to everyone regardless of their choice of social network. Sometimes things in different directions on different networks off of the same post. If it's something specific to someone who only resides on a specific network, I'll post it only there, though. - Mark Trapp

The article doesn't seem to cite any data to support that. The closest I can find is the following in a linked article: "Stop-and-frisk incidents plunged from 685,724 stops in 2011 to just 38,456 in the first three-quarters of 2014 as a result. If stop-and-frisk had caused the ongoing decline in New York's crime rate, its near-absence would logically halt or even reverse that trend. But... more... - John (bird whisperer)

A silly, hypocritical lawsuit by states’-righters that could destroy states’ rights. By @mjs_DC. http://www.slate.com/article... via @slate
"... With marriage equality and health insurance, it’s easy for Bruning and Pruitt to stand up for their alleged federalist convictions. They already despise gay rights and universal health care, but attacking gay people and poor people is a bit gauche these days—so instead, both attorneys general can degrade and disadvantage their citizens under the ostensibly principled banner of states’ rights. When it comes to marijuana, however, Bruning and Pruitt’s true colors show. For these politicians, federalism was never anything more than opportunistic camouflage, a façade to conceal their discriminatory designs. Fair-weather federalism is too kind a term for what Bruning and Pruitt believe. Their vision of federalism was never anything more than a sham. ..." - WarLord

A fascinating analysis of #Uber: Here's How A Global Insurgency Can Take Down Uber http://globalguerrillas.typepad.com/globalg...
Uber is a turking company. Its business model is based on turning people into bots. - WarLord
It uses a smart phone app to turn independent contractors into driving bots (drones). Drones are people who do the simple tasks the Uber app tells them to do. - WarLord
Uber's drivers aren't the faceless, nameless bots customers expect them to be. They are real people with equally real flaws. - WarLord
