My favorite part (talking about both sides) is how the insult is always followed up with a straw man profile of the other person that is the WWI propaganda-poster-of-the-enemy version of whatever they represent

I disagree that the democrats do this. For all the issues I have regarding the left, the democrats are very good at guarding their own while the republicans tear each other down during their race to the top.

Just look at the difference during the debates. How often do you hear Bernie Sanders rip into Hillary? He even downplayed the email server issues that was plaguing Hillary.

The Republicans can learn a lot by watching how the Democrats treat each other.

Yes. I have one and I love it. It runs fast and has a ton of apps. It also gets a lot of updates.

I just bought a google player box to replace my amazon fire tv in my bedroom. I was seriously debating getting a roku bx instead - would have if I could have gotten KODI/XBMC to run on my roku.

Let me rephrase my previous post...

The Judge who is supporting a law passed by Clinton (whose wife is running for president) was appointed by Bush (whose brother is running for president).

I really hope our choices for president next year involve neither of these two families.

When 'justice' is defined by corporate interests, it's time to stop pretending 'justice' has anything to do with it

Both sides are large corps on this case.

But somehow I bet the people who claim about 'activist judges' will say this is perfectly OK, because it's in the interests of corporations.

This shit has to stop.

I really doubt this. Even Rush Limbaugh has come out on the side of ad blockers and fair use.

FreeBSD has FreeBSD girl aka Randi Harper

She is not only a woman but an awful SJW attacker. FreeBSD's support of her cause in many discussion list entries is what caused my business to stop our annual donations and migrate >5k hosts over to Linux. Won't disclose the donation amount because that would likely make me identifiable

I don't blame you. I just googled her and she is pretty terrifying, cold, and heartless.

I skipped on the article and started on the list of her victims. Most of those people are people that I'd consider left leaning, but I would not wish what she did on them or anyone. She really has no problem destroying anyone even those that mainly agree with her.

And your expertize comes from where?

We all form our ideas based on the information we have. All networks and people are biased. CNN was just busted editing Trump to make it look like he was talking about Muslim databases by editing out him talking about the wall and border security.

Did you know ISIS was born of intervention policies from the U.S. government? The reason why they are even around is because we are involved

Yes. But the blame will never be blamed at Obama for his role in creating and then underestimating ISIS.

Strangely enough, when you kill someone family members, they hate you every single time. I guess you should stamp out that hate with more death and hate...

I don't see Germany trying to kill Americans and Britons because of the families they lost in WWII. I don't see the Native Americans killing Americans for what happened to their families.

The problem now is that we fight wars very half-heartily which just allow them to drag out without end.

If we would open drilling even more in the US and more publicly support fracking, we could never use another drop of middle eastern oil again.

Do you think we would then ignore the Middle East?

It would be interesting to find out.

I personally wish we where doing more to help out the Christians and moderate Muslims being raped, tortured, and murdered over there. If we could take oil out if the equation, we might get more public support on this - or we would hear more about US imperialism.

Most people I know state that you should plan to work for a company for about 5 years before moving on to another one, using the skills you learned at your current job to leverage power when negotiating for the next job.

There is no loyalty from either the employee or the employer. It is a two sided situation. An employer is not going to show that much loyalty to a workforce that sees it's current job as a means to it's next one. And an employee will go to where the money is and not every corporation can compete on the pay scale as other corporations.
