Go ahead and hate on the mac and mac users all you want, just come out and say it. Justifying it is not necessary. It's easy to demonstrate what you say is not true. You don't need to pretend to be rational about it.
I don't accept your premise, but even if I did, your line of reasoning doesn't work. It sounds something like this:
"There are two explanations for our existence: 1) My ignorant portrayal of science I learned in church 2) God; you cannot show me that missing link, therefore god did it."
I imagine that you might get along with Otto as you're hostility to the facts seems to match Otto's.
Is this not the conference where they held a bake off to see which browsers and platforms withstood hacking attempts? I can't find any updates on their site about that.
Watch a lot of fox news, do you?
Just because a couple of idiots in some school district did something dumb doesn't make it an epidemic. And just because the tv shows you watch hype the crap out of these stories all day long doesn't make it an epidemic either.
Don't believe the fear-mongering.
Stephen Colbert said it best: "Reality has a well known liberal bias."
You're implying that being educated makes one a liberal.
I'm sad that you got modded down, not because I agree with you, but because people need to see this. There is a segment of our population that hate educated people. I get skeptical comments when I point this out.
Maybe you're being sarcastic and it went over my head. Joke is on me?
Libertarianism itself is hypocritical...
Shouldn't it be called "Republicanism" then?
Seriously though, are you saying it is internally inconsistent as a philosophy? If so, I would find it hard to distinguish from Anarchism.
I'm replying just to undo my accidental moderation mouse click.
Have you heard of pgmodeler?
PostgreSQL Database Modeler, or simply, pgModeler is an open source tool for modeling databases that merges the classical concepts of entity-relationship diagrams with specific features that only PostgreSQL implements. The pgModeler translates the models created by the user to SQL code and apply them onto database clusters from version 8.0 to 9.1. **
I wish yum handled this better. I've been getting by with the yum-plugin-show-leaves, it at least tells which packages are new leaves when you uninstall something. Have you tried yum-plugin-remove-with-leaves ? Quote:
This extension removes unused dependencies which have been incorporated by an installation package that would otherwise not be removed. Helps maintain a system clean of libraries and unused packages.
I don't think you understand how it works down here. Down here people live their lives knowing that corporations have more rights than everyone else the same way that the aristocracy had rights that commoners and peasants did not have in olden times. Your Canadian values are not welcome down here.
Hey! No one cares!
We're here to hate on apple. Keep your history and information to yourself. Unless you can use it to make us hate on apple some more.
How the fuck did this get modded insightful?
Let's see gays - that's one I'll have to give you. The gay marriage thing is debatable, but too many Republicans would even outlaw gay relationships if it weren't for the recent, and baseless, supreme court decision.
And this makes them far more dangerous than you're willing to acknowledge. What do you think the Santorum/Robertsen types would do if they managed to make abortion and same-sex marriage illegal? They would ban the music you listen to, the video games you play, and then they would go after the way you dress, which church you go to, the group you congregate with etc. Once thugs have gained power, they seek more power. Doesn't this totally remind you of the taliban?
abortion - right to life trumps other rights. You can't kill someone just because they're inconvenient.
Wrong. Nice right-wing inflammatory rhetoric. This is about the right to make your own medical choices without government interference.
hiring - the Democrats tell you who you have to work with.
Wrong. Prohibiting hiring discrimination is not the same thing as discrimination.
hiring - the Democrate tell you how much you have to pay and in general what you and another person can agree to.
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
running a restaurant - the Democrats tell you whether you can smoke and Bloomberg (Democrat who switched parties but not stripes so he could run) even wants to tell you how big your drinks can be.
Bloomberg can't do that thankfully, but no one should have the right to force me to inhale their smoke. Plus, there ought to be enforcement for kitchen sanitation practices. Nice try though.
racism - the Democrats forbid people from rejecting racism. Either hire based on race (and do school admissions based on race) or face the wrath of Democrats
Yeah, this is the same thing as yelling the N-word to a staffer on his way to work. (that's sarcasm, btw)
heath care - the Democrats tell you what kinds of health care you need to pay for
Wrong. This about making health care companies provide you what you paid for. This is about prohibiting local monopolies.
money - the Democrats take your money so they choose how it is spent
You mean like how I'm paying for wars that I didn't support? Oh, you mean paying for Haliburton for services they didn't deliver? You mean giving money to oil companies?
money - the Democrats take your children's money (though Republicans at times have joined them in doing so) so they can decide how your children's future earnings will be spent today.
The only freedom Democrats seem to respect is sexual freedom. To them all other freedom's are subject to government whim. And on sexual freedom they are so extreme that they work to remove the responsibility that should come with all freedoms and instead have everyone pay for it whether or not they participate, or even approve of it.
What about warrant-less wire-tapping? Indefinite detention? You cannot support either party if you care at all about personal liberties.
If you think you're informed or balanced, you're not. You're just wrong. Lay off that fox news crack pipe.
I don't know a lot of people who are happy with the Democrats but you made me think about how they're different than this group of Republicans and that makes me support the Democrats more than I did before. Thanks, I guess?
My experience in the US is that sola Scriptura ain't in the bible and the bible ain't never been wrong.
