You can't tell me that the late-hitting backronym "taxed enough already" is not a direct result of worshiping the dollar.

How is it not?

Apparently, I can.

No, you cannot.

could desiring fiscal accountability

Amping up the regressive nature of the most regressive taxation system in the world is not even close to the same as "fiscal accountability". I would suggest you try again but you haven't really tried once.

They openly worship the almighty dollar even more so than their parent GOP.

Troll Tuesday, indeed.

Oh, come on. You can't tell me that the late-hitting backronym "taxed enough already" is not a direct result of worshiping the dollar. Add to that the fact that most of your party's ambitions relate to accelerating the distribution of shiny stones...

That was pretty much a rehash of what you were saying weeks ago when you were still proud of not reading The Communist Manifesto. In other words you are supporting the hypothesis that at the very least if you did read it you gained absolutely nothing from it (and hence did not comprehend the document in the slightest) or perhaps did not actually read it at all.

One bit of reclama: it ain't "my" party

I thought you were claiming to be part of the Tea Party. They openly worship the almighty dollar even more so than their parent GOP. Granted the democrats are also focused on paying back their debt to their owners now - as seen with the Health Insurance Industry Bailout Act of 2010 (amongst other bills) - and hardly any different.

I've read half, and seen the historical effects of these ideas.

Except you haven't. You admitted you have been skimming it, and your "analysis" of it suggests that may be giving you too much credit. If your goal was to understand Communism you are doing yourself no favors.

That said, it does not appear you ever wanted to understand Communism anyways.

How much dirty diaper smell do YOU need for a diagnosis, mister?

I challenged you to think before, and you declined. You seem to be digging in your heels on that decision.

Everyone in DC, and everyone in your party (whether they realize it or not) are worshiping the same god. You're not any better or any different.

That god is of course the almighty dollar. Don't pretend that you don't already drop down to worship him, and don't pretend that your party isn't driven by the principle of worshiping him at every opportunity and praising him above all others.

But in what way are you qualified to call something crap when you haven't actually read it? Granted, that hasn't stopped you in the past, but nonetheless it is rather absurd. I don't discard the conservative books that you keep trying to sell me through Amazon as crap if I haven't read them, what qualifies you to discard pieces that you haven't read as crap?

Again, nothing that you have written since claiming to have started reading it would have been impossible for you to have written two weeks ago when you were still bragging about having never read it. If you are actually reading it, why are you intentionally doing such an awful job of reading it? You clearly are not learning anything from the text, you might as well be reading more conservative blogs instead.

I'm not going to read it for you. If you don't want to read it, then don't. However when you choose not to read it you have no right to call yourself knowledgeable on Communism. Similarly if you read it at such a level of proud non-comprehension, you don't have any right to claim to have really read it, either.

It sounds like you would have been just as well to have downloaded a scan of the original document in German, as a PDF, and tried to read the raw file in notepad.

You are making the assumption that his garage is connected to his house and that he has an insulated garage door.

And you all are making the assumption that he even has a garage

Actually, in the comment that got this part going the author said

-22 F temps are normal for us in the winter, and I don't heat my garage

In MN the word "garage" has a rather specific meaning; a minimum of 4 walls (one of which has a door that a car can drive through) and a ceiling. Now, a garage in MN may - or may not - be heated or insulated depending on a wide variety of factors. Many are also attached to houses (or even tucked under houses) which generally makes them a bit less expensive to regulate temperature in.

But nonetheless the poster did specifically mention having a garage.

I give that pile of crap every bit of the respect it deserves

That does not in any way sound like a perspective from someone who is reading for comprehension. If someone said that about the Bible when trying to understand Christianity I expect you would come down quite hard on them. You're reading the capstone work of Communism but attacking it with such fervor as to make it highly unlikely that you will get anything from it. It sounds like you would have done just as well to spend that time reading comic books and celebrating your ignorance instead.

You dislike these words and refuse to use them. Which signals to management people that you are not management and should not be treated as part of their in-group. "gelling" works exactly as intended, in other words.

You have a valid point. However, slashdot is not intended as a forum for middle management to trade buzzwords. Slashdot is supposed to be for technical discussions. Arguably even if we can't permanently strike "gelling" from the English Language it should be reasonable to present an argument against using it here.

Make sure your code does nothing gracefully.
