Place looks like a crappy blog. It looks like I'm on my damn phone, not a desktop.
Also if anyone else has a problem reading small text, its a website for nerds, I believe they have the skills to increase the font size on their end.
Reasons I hate beta is because it looks like another f*** blog website. Beta has no style what-so-ever. It all just blends in with itself. Nothing stands out. And you spend a good portion of your time scrolling because of all the white space beta has.
I left netflix when they started pulling their shit years ago. Their member base exploded in outrage and they went back on their plans. I think you should follow suit.
There are other places that serve up other peoples news so a discussion can be had.
You think this matters? We should have real concerns. In late October Resers had a listeria recall on a lot of products produced at one assembly plant for lots of sub-companies. There has been no followup in the news (post november) detailing any further testing by them or the FDA. That original recall was initiated due to testing done in Canada. Should there be any consumer confidence by the American public that we can trust a factory like this to produce safe food? Look at their recall window on those products, it has been expanded now and includes 2014 products. How often do they test!? Why are they still shipping this food if its being recalled? This problem was first exposed in October. How often do they do a thorough cleaning!? I have tried to followup and have not been told of _any_ routine testing done on American soil by either the FDA or the company in question. The Reser consumer rep literally told me consumers do not care about their quality practices and that she did not have any information for me on how often they test for this. I have tried to find out more and all I have to go on is public information in the news. All consumers have are gems like this and more questions:
The problem was discovered through microbiological testing by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. A traceback investigation and follow-up testing by FDA at the facility determined there was potential cross contamination of products with Listeria monocytogenes from product contact surfaces.
If you want to have honest conversations with people, you need to be clear what you're talking about.
I was not applying some sort of rhetorical strategy. What anon was alleging is that you cannot have any meaningful conversation with some progressives because they try to mislead people, and that they do not tell the whole story. I was merely bringing up the reality that no one wants to have an honest conversation. Further: It's misleading statements like that that turn off moderates (who can easily google the federal budget) from believing in the good intentions of us on the left. I would assert that neither side has "good intentions" but merely their own interests at heart. Each side sort of has to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda and hope that the way they frame things wins out.
Imagine if a (real not Koch-brothers-fake) community action group approached regulars on the street with a whitepaper and said: Here in these 50 pages we outline the background behind Social Security and provide statistics that reinforce our belief that everyone needs to contribute 37% more. What would those people do?
When other progressives say stuff like this, it really pisses me off. Your statements are more than a little misleading.
Do you mean to say that those on the right never say statements that are misleading? That the big ag lobby never misrepresents the tremendous aid they get from the farm bill, while the pawns in the house try to cut spending on nutrition programs? That we do not comply with our free trade agreements - and that those other nations are merely trying to lash out at us unfairly? (I listen to ag radio, you wouldn't believe the nonsense. One day the corn lobby is complaining about the EPA relaxing the ethanol mandate; the next the beef lobby is saying how great it is since they have had to buy that over priced corn and have seen some red ink the last couple years. All the while no one cares about this particular case where government is regulating a free market?) You can pick another sector if you want, food alone is just so easy to refute you with. So please step off your soap box and review the situation(s) in the real world.
Oversimplification: Windows Firefox Download is 22.9MB and the SeaMonkey download is 23.3MB. And SeaMonkey has better default configuration options. And tries to maintain a normal semblance of configurable preferences without the go away shoo tactics of the about:config area 51. And has a suite of a few other programs. And doesn't have that nasty google smell. But OMG it must be so bloated!
My take is that SeaMonkey is a breath of fresh air. A reminder that you are using a real computer instead of a wannabe tablet.
so they don't even have to pretend to appoint fair judges
Fair Judges? Those same fair judges that the Chamber of Commerce chooses for us? Or those fair judges that get kicked out once called "activist judges" for making otherwise perfectly normal decisions that some member of the "business" community hates? Tell me again who the highest bidder is? This stuff isn't trying to read tea leaves...
