The "Most Excellent" post title kind of gives it away. But I'll take the bet if you're still offering.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
RIght. After all, it's the letter next to your name that defines you, not your actual beliefs or anything.
His point was that the first "action" they would take to "improve" government would be to remove that stipulation.
And we're back where we started.
Wow, if 7even is that much better than 6ix was, I can't wait until 8ight comes out.
I only have 2wo questions for you: since you installed 3hree different versions (one even be4our it was officially released), did you find that 9ine times out of 10en, the 60ixty-4our bit version lacked driver support four your devices?
And also, are you aware that the number "seven" does not, in fact, begin with a "7"?
You only think we live in an analog world because the quantization is too small for you to detect.
I don't think the industry needs pesky things like "facts" for them to blame piracy for bringing down their profits.
You ascribe to them much undeserved truthiness.
You actually get to "moderate" "posts" of several dozen people. In fact, the other posts are possibly the more important ones to moderate since they affect your daily life a lot more than the celebrities at the top of the ticket.
Unfortunately, most people ignore the posts that they should be paying attention to and instead get wrapped up in the national hype. But it's all the politician's fault, not the idiot voters who don't pay attention to local races.
Oops, I think my metaphor broke down there somewhere. Sorry.
I think the problem people are having is that the "Obama" ideal meant a completely different thing to each and every person who voted for him. Every one of them thought Obama's goals and desires lined up 1:1 with their own personal wishes. So, naturally, as they find out that they were completely deluded and/or projecting, they'll be a bit testy.
You can please some of the people some of the time, etc., etc. I wouldn't fault Obama for that.
Variety is the spice of life!
Not to burst your bubble, but the vast majority of the funds he received DID come from "your average citizen". It's one of the more remarkable things about the campaign.
the first chink in the army
Is that some kind of racist asian joke?
I believe you're looking for "chink in the armor". Although that is the funniest eggcorn I've seen in a while.
Newsflash, that's the whole point. We just experienced a record voter turnout, so the whole "apathetic voter" meme can probably go away.
What people are suddenly realizing is that voting doesn't _matter_. It's the unelected political appointees that are the "real" government. And they're pretty much all scum-suckers.
I've never understood this. What's to stop someone from just saying "I'm a Jew" without going through all the hoops? Who is going to prove them wrong?
