There's an easy answer for that, once you've had 16+ years in the industry, and I stumbled onto it by accident, and thanks to this one weird tip I have gotten a raise every few months.

That weird tip: keep your Dice, Monster, and Linked In profiles active and up to date.

I'm not currently looking for a change, but last week I had 48 hours in which I had 12 recruiter calls. And I've been able to wrangle a 2%-4% raise out of every job change for the past three years.

"The vast majority of your deities, including today's most popular ones were conjured up by winos and opium addicts."

Yes, they were. You can tell them from the real thing by not being universal and lacking the ability to say, choose the gravitational constant for the entire universe.

I said that druggies were harmful to themselves. The entire intent of getting high is to escape reality, so why are you even arguing the fact that I acknowledge that those who get high are escaping reality?

The Objective universe does exist, even when your brain is too addled to notice. Plenty of people have met their ends while high because of that.

"What miniscule fraction write screeds and take up arms"

Approximately 10%. But that's not the reason I say Islam is a fake. The reason I say Islam is a fake is because as a theology, it can be used to justify everything from Sufi to ISIS and everything in between. There is no coherent morality to Islam, because Allah himself, as portrayed in the Koran, is not a faithful God, is not coherent from verse to verse.

A similar problem can be found in the Old Testament, and has inspired an awful lot of fundamentalism and atheism in Christianity and Judaism, perhaps the extreme example that can be found in our time, and a close cousin to the violence of ISIS, is Zionism in Israel.

"Catholicism has the bloody destruction and enslavement of the Americas on it's conquistador hands."

Yes.

"Islam - past and present - has nothing to shade that, by way of comparison."

Have you paid attention to what has been happening in Africa in the last 150 years?

"The "muslims" that you see and read about with violent conversion and conquest? They are created, inflated and supplied by the various trans-national agencies and alliances in Global para-politics."

They've been in existence far longer- the Sunni/Shi'a split happened within a generation of the death of the Prophet.

This was not entirely unexpected, given the nature of the data (floating inventory moving through a factory and a warehouse- sometimes it returns to the same location in three dimensional space, but is unique in four dimensions). But it sure would have been nice if they could have given me a scan sequence number as well; a date time field is nice for reporting but should NEVER be part of a logical primary key.

I'm looking at the effects for his base. Oh, not the fake base like the poor people in Ferguson who expected him to stop white cops from shooting their children- but his true base, in New York and Chicago, who expect him to relieve them of certain costs of doing business.

That is to say, the base that will provide campaign funding for decades to come. Getting elected is a side job to the eternal campaign.

Why did the Roman Empire collapse? What is the Latin for office automation?
