Don't forget the Drones buzzing over your homes for your delivery service that renders the Post Office and its little remaining union power extinct.

It's weird to think about when Microsoft introduced the kinect and its always on """feature""" people spazzed tf out to point of them actually removing it. Now it's commonplace to have an Amazon Echo or Google Home in your house listening all the time and no one has blinked an eye. Even better now that they just gave the alphabet soup crew the direct line.

Didn't they just also try to push that service where they unlock your door and leave your delivery inside your house while you're not there too? Fucking ridiculous.

When you get delivery, you won't even have to open the door, with our new Government mandated Amazon Locking Mechanisms™. Your dog won't bark at the door bell anymore, you won't have to get up and open the door, all you have to do, is wait for the package.

i have no clue what this had to do with the rest of the article

zizek in a nutshell

Alexa overheard you mentioning a revolution so we went ahead and alerted the authorities and with our new Amazon Prime Search Warrant™ your Government mandated Amazon Locking Mechanisms™ will unlock within seconds of a judges approval or by a PATRIOT ACT override by an officer.

Net Neutrality Is Fiction, No Matter What FCC Does


sorry I'm late, today's announcement came after my initial post.

I love it when PPP thought prevails over common sense.

FFS, this is twice they've given me an isotope shower now. I've don't even have one shitty superpower from their incompetence.



Can't say I liked the guy, so nice

News is so boring lately tbqh…

When will something major happen? (No, Memegabe doesn't count).


Buddy, we're accelerating history, and there's no turning back.


The darkest hour is just before the dawn, user.

Postcolonialism is shit.

Im disapointed in you all

A certain nation known for it's geographic length, perhaps?


Daily reminder that Allende disarmed the workers and therefore set himself for the coup d'état.

Read the crucial parts of the last 3 paragraphs together:

At lesst Chile has its independence, Puerto Rico dosent even have self governence thanks to the fiscal board that was instituted a short time ago

I mean its self governance was a joke, mock elections to keep the masses servile and eternally bootlicking, but the façade is unraveling

So local CBS station is doing its Three Percenter PR piece tonight.

Apparently it was "part 1" of "Militia Barbie."

Some goofy shit, folks.

Can someone explain to me how cuckchan didn't see this coming at all? It seems a majority of the users got shocked when they realized Trump's shinanigans would mean that 4chan could be blocked from most IPs (especially more liberal ones) because of Holla Forums being reactionary (and retarded) as shit

The US Navy is just a bucket of lulz at this point.

This entire article boils down to "your webshop can't compete with amazon so you don't need net-neutrality".
What absolute hogwash.

I don't think it was supposed to imply you don't need it, rather this administration/chairman pajeet don't give two shits about what the people think and the corporations that might be affected aren't looking to jump in front of any bullets. Bar a miracle, I don't see the FCC changing their mind. Maybe I'm just a pessimist though.

They did, theyre just in for another lulzworthy surprise.

Watching the demise of right-wingers is like watching a porn vid involving rape

It's quite fapworthy.

Oh no I mean the FCC shit. The screen cap you posted is about Syria

Reminder that illegal Haitian immigrants face a far longer and more dangerous trip through the sea than Cubans do, but only the latter get special treatment to reside.
