I heard that this scholarship is only available for Brony Geldings and you have to attend all classes at CalArts in full Brony regalia complete with halter.
Having lived in SF for over a decade I have firsthand knowledge of what these so called "progressives" really are: FASCISTS.
Maybe not the brand of fascism that we see in the NeoCons, but every inch as fascist in believing that they are some how superior to everyone else and that they and they alone have the right to tell others how to live their lives.
They want to tell you what to eat (let's ban the happy meal! Let's ban bad carbs, lets ban sugar!)
They want to tell you what to drink (no soda mmm'kay?)
They want to tell businesses what they can and can not sell in their stores (sorry Drugstores, you CAN'T sell cigarettes!)
They want to monitor your lifestyle (lets send a predawn police force out to inspect everyone's garbage to make sure they put their trash in the right bins)
These "progressives' are every inch as bad as the NeoCons in my book.
And frankly, I'd like nothing more than to see all them, Neocons, teabagger and progressives alike go fuck themselves and get the fuck out of this country and go build their dystopian hellhole on some island far from here.
I've seen the progressive propaganda flicks like "zeitgeist" and it's sequels.
What a load of crap.
These lefty ideologues who think they have the answer constantly overlook one "inconvenient truth":
HUMANITY IS CHAOTIC! WE ARE NOT UNIFORM, WE DO NOT LIVE BY SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPAL.
We are not orderly little ants needing their "scientific control" We do not want to live in orderly boring little societies where our daily lives are managed by a "scientific" elite.
We want chaos, we want spontaneity, we want to explore, take risks and die or thrive taking them.
We want to make our own decisions and create our own experiences.
So if you think these "progressives" have the answer I suggest you go get yourself put into some sort of institution.
There your life will be very well ordered. You will be told what and when to eat, when to sleep, what to do, what to wear. You will be given limited access to bad things such as TV and books. And all of this dictated by "scientific" principal and "resource management"
And I'm sure you will be quite happy. And I'll be quite happy knowing you are there instead of out here trying to take away my freedom to live my life the way I want.
Because if you ever did get "your way" I can guarantee you it would result in mass slaughter.
We all saw what the prohibition of alcohol and drugs have done to create power in the hands of the criminals.
Imagine when normal everyday life is outlawed and the masses are forced to live to your "scientific" regulations.
Rivers of blood in the streets will ensue. Because we will all be criminals then. And when the sugar eating, booze loving junk food eating population are considered criminals, you and your kind will be vastly outnumbered and rubbed out in a fit of violence.
We are creating a nation of prey that is ALL they are, they are prey and the wolves will feed and feed well.
Yes, you are quite correct THE US AND MOST COUNTRIES ARE NATIONS OF PREY.
But not prey for the criminals. But prey for the MASTERS.
Do you ever wonder why the raise of gun bans and the weight gains throughout the global population seem to be running hand in hand over the last couple decades?
The Masters want a world populated with fat, harmless cows ready for eating.
I know it's in bad taste, but I'd pay anything to see Michael J Fox doing a Frank's RedHot Commercial splattering sauce everywhere while having a case of the shakes.
I PUT THAT SH*T ON EVERYTHING!!!!
I'm not saying it's aliens, but that "ridge" was clearly a space craft docking terminal used by ancient aliens and their flying saucers.
I was so pleased when the UN finally told the US and Israel what they thought of the nice little Ghetto Israel had created for the Palestinians to slowly be eradicated in.
Frankly, I agree with Sir Gerald Kaufman of the UK in his views that Israel is no better than certain German Fascists in their treatment of the Palestinians.
“The current Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploits the continuing guilt among gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the Holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians,” Sir Gerald Kaufman, a veteran MP of the governing Labour Party and a long-time critic of Israel, said Thursday in parliament.
And before some butt-hurt heeb starts pulling out his "you disagree with Israel, you therefor are an anti-semite" card...
Sir Gerald Kaufman is himself a Jew.
I hope that someday more land can be given to Palestine and both sides can learn to live in peace -- but considering this dispute seems driven by ultra-conservative religious wing-nuts on all sides, I don't think that will happen without total annihilation of the region.
I actually bothered to read the article, and the ex-employee in question RESIGNED by giving two weeks notice after being repeatedly passed over for promotion.
Maybe in this day in age, we are now suposed to refer to anyone leaving a company as being terminated, but I for one think there is a profound difference between terminating an employee vs their departure on their own accord.
With that said -- seeing that this guy was butt-hurt enough to leave and commit these acts against his employer shows that he wasn't working with a full-deck.
So I don't think the employer "had it coming" or provoked it -- since they seemed happy enough to employ him, but just didn't see him fit for a higher level position.
Moreover, there was the episode where the Cylons were dying of an encephalitis virus which was incurable and had a 100% fatality rate and which was so virulent, that it would infect the resurrection ship if any victims resurrected since it would be carried over.
Lee Adama put 2 and 2 together and hatched a plan to commit genocide against the Cylons, but Helo "Goody-Twoshoes" Agathon killed the captive Cylon victims before they could carry out the plan.
What I want to know is why Agathon was not blown out an airlock for that piece of mutiny that resulted in casualties against the humans due to an aborted attack.
I recall in that PKD story, they used a robotic housefly to conduct surveillance on people. And while we are safe for now, I am sure the CIA and FBI are wetting themselves thinking about the day they can get a power source with the energy density to power this fly sized drone without a tether and for hours at a time.
Why waste time with getting warrants for wiretaps when they can just let loose a few fly drones in the suspect's window?
I was under the impression that once something becomes a meme, it is essentially public domain since it's extensive public use would forfeit any intellectual rights the creators may have had.
From my point of view, they see that Warner Bros has lots of money and are making a cash grab even though they can't show any evidence of them trying to retain ownership of their creative works in the past. Where was the flurry of take down notices to the social sites these memes were propagated on? Where was the cease and desist letter to the Colbert show when Keyboard Cat was used numerous times there?
I'm all for the little guy being protected against the 800lb gorilla -- but in this case I hope the judge takes a sniff of this lawsuit and dismisses it outright.
I believe it is Sithic philosophy that states you are either absolutely for or absolutely against something.
So I would not argue with Troyusrex, unless you want to get force choked.
It's nothing more than an enormous "fuck you" to the American public.
Yes it is, and one years in the making. The end game here is the end of Social Welfare. The GOP absolutely can not abide Social Welfare existing
Social Security? Unemployment? This things are seen as an evil cancer destroying our society. And the GOP in Congress (declared themselves exempt from the Sequestration) will not stop until these programs are abolished.
However, Corporate Welfare is good, and will be increased in upcoming years while today's 30 somethings are forced to house and feed their unemployable parents who have moved in with them in their studio apartments.
Is to place heavy fines on any one caught driving while in possession of a mobile device.
Just think of the added revenue!
Apple has already trademarked "Think Different" and the use of a "Reality Distortion Field" for a device to control the thought processes of it's user. As you can see, this "innovation" by Samsung is just repurposing the real innovation previously done by Apple.
Considering the fact that Netflix seems adept at making polished original productions -- I'd go with Amazon.
Have you seen the "Pilots" for their original programs? God awful.
