'Law and Order' isn't just a comforting phrase for all their terrified cracker constituents; it is justification for making piles of cash directly or indirectly from the Prison-Industrial sector and their allied corporations ranging from laundry services, the shittiest possible, Puritan-approved prison food, to usurious fees charged to inmates daring to call their families (and vice-versa).

Profit!

When it comes to women's rights, the 'modern' Republican party is most closely aligned with extremist Muslims such as the Taliban. The saddest part is that both camps have brainwashed a good chunk of women in their sphere of influence to actually believe this subjugationist horseshit, mostly those raised by women-hating patriarchs.

Comment: Nuclear Power Plants (Score 1) 278

I'm reminded of nuclear power plants: everything is great when brand-new; everything functions, maintenance is top-notch and top-priority.

But in the fullness of time (and the penny-pinching greed of both privately and publicly-held entities), along with all too human facets of complacency and sloth... that is when the shit comes down. In this case, more than just figuratively.

Nonprofits don't generate shareholder returns, this doesn't mean that they are prevented from enriching executives via compensation packages.

Exactly. If this is a noble pursuit for humanity, everyone's salary / package / compensations should be posted - most especially Mr. Wales, who isn't exactly pure as the driven snow.

After all: information just wants to be free.

Philip Zimbardo isnt doing science on this, hes regurgitating talking points from evangelical american christian leadership. porn addiction, insufficient masculinity, and "the vidja games" are all bitchcraft perfected by the likes of James Dobson and focus on the family as surrogates for their collective concern that america is "changing" and they dont like it.

All this shit boils down to what they see coming: the White race becoming a minority within God's Own Country (USA).

From the very beginning, the anti-abortion movement has not been "Save the babies!", but rather "Save the WHITE babies!!"

According to an older story [wikipediocracy.com] at Wikipediocracy, the objections seem to be partly that fundraising campaigns are expressed in a dire "We need money now or the lights go off!" kind of tone, when that really isn't the situation.

The same could be said about Consumer Reports. I continue to be a member, but I do tire of their endless (and not exactly zero-cost) mailings begging for money. Surprisingly, they also are intentionally (IMHO) fuzzy in conflating subscriptions to the magazine with their requests for money for Consumer Reports [Foundation].
