Google Well, this has been a very, very long time in the making. Google has finally unveiled its big Dropbox competitor: Google Drive. You start with 5GB for free, and you can go all the way to 1TB for $50 per month. This is a big deal for many (if you were to use rumouring as a gauge), but all I can think of is this: why on earth would you entrust your files to a company - any company - whose sole interest is extracting money from you, and who, to boot, is subject to crazy American laws?

There's a substantial percentage of Americans who agree with you, but Occupy is the first time I've seen them really represented.


Occupy is NOT representing us. We aren't nasty people, they're a union driven movement that's taking everyone else along for the ride. It's also global, if you didn't notice, not a grassroots movement. I'm just sick of the media making us look bad, and now OSnews is jumping on the bandwagon. I respect people's opinions, but I have no respect for people constantly attacking us via media outlets just because they BELIEVE things to be true, when they aren't.

Yes, every country has it's own issues, so please quit making us look like the jerks of the world. We went from "the last hope of mankind" to the butt of everyone's joke in less than two generations. How hard is it to see the difference between hope and false hope? Not too hard if you stop listening to the media. Of course, I've said to stop listening to the media way before the media told you to stop listening to the media. But of course the media only said it when Occupy was built up in November. Hmmm, coincidence that the signs on occupy and the media's message were the same? There goes individual thought. If I were in the media, I sure wouldn't tell people to turn off the news (which would be my bread and butter). It's nothing new for people to infiltrate media (look at Media Matters and how cozy they are with Occupy...that's because THEY STARTED IT! And Fox News is the liars right? Occupied Wall Street Journal: started by Jed Brandt (look that mofo up if you wanna see who's behind this as well, then follow the cookie crumbs to the facts).

All I'm saying is that when people get offended and they're lefties, there's this "oh you poor person let's rectify it by being mean to everyone who doesn't fit the bill" but when a right leaner or happy person comes along and says they're offended it turns into this "you shouldn't be offended bla bla bla" whatever. It gets old, and I'd just really appreciate it if Thom would PLEASE stop playing the game. We're tired of it. By "we're" I mean those of us who are sick of playing the liberal hate-game and would rather just be left alone. Calling our laws crazy is an invitation to ridicule from one like myself. We aren't the ones who gave into monarchs for thousands of years, yet we're the crazy ones...

Don't start none, won't be none.
