Comment: We've weaponized the IRS, whynot the terrorist DB? (Score 1) 256

Let's see who gets a FOIA request for their entry criteria and see what it takes to get into this DB. I've read of at least 2 stories (Army and FBI) where government sensitivity training is already classifying some conservatives or Christians as "extremist", somehow forgetting about the people with the black flag that have a stated goal of terminating all of us.

“It is in the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

—Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna

"...the Muslim’s real enemies, not only Israel but also the United States. Waging jihad against both of these infidels is a commandment of Allah that cannot be disregarded.”

—Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi

That's the Hamas charter. It won't take long to get to the part in the preamble where it quotes Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna:

"Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors."

Also check out articles seven and thirteen for a brief but concise education on Hamas and their foundational beliefs regarding dealing with Israel.

Another choice quote from al-Banna:

“It is in the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

Let's try this one from Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi:

“...the Muslim’s real enemies, not only Israel but also the United States. Waging jihad against both of these infidels is a commandment of Allah that cannot be disregarded.”

Muslim Brotherhood's mission statement:

Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu akbar!

This may not clear up your hatred of the Jews, but it will at least help you deal with my "big lie".

Bonus round: This is the photo of the grand Mufti of Jerusalem meeting in with Hitler in 1941, in case you want to deny the Islam-Nazi connection too. You wanna guess what they were talking about?

I tried the Google DNS servers with no luck. At first I too thought it was the intermittent Win7 stuff coming out of hibernation because that was my use case, but my wife's iPad and our cell phones were also taking forever to load a page, mostly hanging at the very beginning of the request.

Anyway just cancelled Comcast yesterday and my pages load blissfully fast at 15Mbps as opposed to taking forever at 50Mbps.

I can understand wanting to save money by putting tech script as the first line of tech support, but it gets a little tiring when want to skip to the advanced folks and still they want to stick to their script and ask me to reboot the modem as if I hadn't done that 3 times already. If it isn't low hanging fruit for the script readers it's not going to be a very successful or efficient support call.

Seems some DNS issue that isn't solved by reboot kept all of the devices in my network from getting reliable connections for about 10-15 minutes after starting to browse. I did some of the obvious stuff; reboot modem, try other DNS servers, etc. Doesn't matter now. Switched to FiOS and now pages load before I can blink.

The racist extermination war is currently being waged by Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood, et al who actually, as a point of fact, have jihad and the extermination of the Jews in their charter. If Israel wanted to take over Gaza for oil they would have done it already, and they would not have pulled out all their settlements for the last peace "agreement" that always seem to only go one way.

The reason they haven't done it is simple; it's not their stated goal and it never has been. On the other hand, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood etc have jihad and extermination of the Jews in their charter.

And when they're done with the Jews they're coming after the rest of us infidels. Domination and subjugation is at the core of militant Islam. That's not islamophobia; it's history. Remember when that caliphate thingy was the kind of kooky stuff that kooky conspiracy theorists talked about and the brilliant intellects at CNN ridiculed? Wanna look at ISIS's little bit of handy work in Iraq and what they're calling themselves? (hint: it rhymes with aliphate)

One of the helo officers claims this thing went from 0-2000 ft in 2 seconds. I'll believe that out of a model rocket, or maybe a Diamond Dust with a tuned pipe, but not out of a quadcopter loaded down with a camera. This officer was likely exaggerating what he saw for effect.

I've personally seen how the rotorwash of a helo more than a half mile away turned over a 25 lb aircraft during a design competition fly-off back in my college days in Florida. Damn good pilot from Univ. of Puerto Rico recovered a highly loaded bird from fully inverted and brought it in. I have no doubt that a 5 lb quad-copter would get tossed around like a speck of dust. Either they weren't that close, or the autopilot did a hell of a job keeping the thing upright and under control.

That's progressivism for ya. Turning ever-more basic traits of human nature and existence into "rights" people are entitled to and building up the grievance industry. I hope we get better at identifying when people are trying to create problems to propose "solutions". Like crying about "inequality" with one breath while advocating for "diversity" with the other.

The less time we spend touching the screen, the better one can keep their eyes on the road and avoid becoming absorbed with the gadget. That means sensitive touch controls with very little lag, quick look-up times, and voice inputs. Google/Bing integration would keep data entry to a minimum too; if I've already have a place marked on the maps, I wouldn't have to enter it into the system all over again.

Of course I have no time to watch movies on my screen or visually sort through ads to get what I need.

Overdrawn? But I still have checks left!
