I owe you absolutely nothing and unless I am buying something from you or you are buying something from me I have no interest in you. If you want want government to stealcfrom me to subsidise you somehow and then call me a 'sociopath' or a 'moron' for not accepting that, then you are not only a thief, but some kind of a sick psycho thief.

One has to do more than your average bear to build a business from the ground up, how is that a surprise in any way? If it were easy, everybody would be doing it and it wouldn't be discussed here right now. I started up my own businesses but always self funded / got a client for the product. To do that I put 10 years of savings and years of work on the line, that is not an easy thing to do. But if I were unwilling to do it myself, how could I ever expect somebody else to do it on my behalf?

Comment Re:Time to ditch Java (Score 1) 181

This ruling doesn't just cover Java and really Java has nothing to do with this. This is about the entire field of computing but probably even worse. Do you want to build a house? So are you going to make doors rectangular shaped passages with opening/closing covers? You are violating something there.

This actually proves my point on copyrights (and patents for that matter). Government should not be given any authority to provide any sort of protection for any of it.

Comment Interesting problem (Score 1) 62

So the problem is cross contamination between fiber channels due to frequency differentials, I think they equalized all frequencies somehow but I don't fully get it. Red is longer than blue for example and if separate strands of fiber carry different 'colour' and frequencies 'bleed' from strand to strand how do you equalize that exactly? Have wave peaks correspond? How? Are they proportionate to remain synchronized? If this is a serious problem, why not add more isolation between strands?

Comment Re:Soverign debt (Score 0) 743

Wrong, you are a joke, I am being 100% serious about everything I say on the issue of economics and individual freedoms. Your ideology leads to the outcomes that you are supposedly horrified of, the reality is that you should be inspecting your own judgement and motivation and be horrified with yourself once you realise that your own ideology causes the massive suffering as the end result. Your ideology is ideology of destruction of individual freedoms which inexorably leads to destruction of the economy and thus society and then the people who you pretend to care about suffer the most. The solution is of-course actual individual freedoms, but it goes against your idiotic notion of social justice that negates individual freedom both as general concept and as specific implementation.

Exactly, officially inflation is low but the reality shows otherwise and the vast majority of the lemming population believes the official propaganda and not their own eyes.

It's as if the official propaganda was that the sky is bright green colour and everybody bought it even though all they had to do is raise their eyes up and see the colour.... they won't do it, even when they do it, they still remain convinced that they are wrong and the official propaganda is right.

This is real life twilight zone.

Jesus fucking christ, precisely, I hire people who satisfy my requirements and I pay money to those people. Amazing! That's just amazing.

Am I doing it out of 'nepotism' or 'fraud'? No, I am building products and services that I am HOPING to sell and I am also doing some custom work for clients that I found already.

The money that I pay as salaries did not have to be paid for those products that I decided to build before having a single client outside of myself. So I am the employer and I created the jobs by hiring people and training them and giving them tasks to do and paying them money out of my own fucking pocket. Out of MY bank account into THEIR bank account for things I want them to do.

Whether or not I sell my products and services further to somebody else does NOT concern the people that I am paying to work for me, as far as they are concerned when the month is over they get paid. It doesn't matter to them if I burn the product or sell it or do whatever with it, they get paid either way.

I wish I could buy a yacht for 10,000USD but I can not. I have the 10,000USD to spend on a yacht but nobody is supplying yachts at 10,000USD. There is no fucking supply of yachts at 10,000USD.

If somebody can come up with a way to sell me a yacht at 10,000USD, guess what: they got themselves a customer, a market that otherwise doesn't exist because there are no yachts at 10,000USD.

In fact I would love to buy a yacht at 500USD. Even a more complicated question: where are these fucking yachts at 500USD? There are none, there is no supplier that can do it. The problem is lack of supply, never lack of demand.

You (or somebody) asked earlier: how come the companies are looking at 'customer confidence' numbers in the USA to figure out what to do with their stock? Well, the fact is that USA is an unproductive country and the unproductive country that it is, people in it have very limited ability to buy things. The word conman comes from confidence. The confidence trick is what is being at play here, it's not whether people have jobs and productive jobs at that to buy what they want, the question is: will they go into more debt to buy what they cannot afford?

Now, when your economy is built on confidence and specifically on confidence of consumers to go into more debt rather than on productivity - you have yourself a problem. In a productive economy it is not about confidence of a consumer, it is about employment rate. REAL employment rate, not fictitious bullshit pushed by the government propagandists. Real price of money, real inflation, real employment, real productive output.

Without a real economy all that we can talk about is confidence tricks.

Back to the question at hand, who creates jobs. Jobs are created by people who hire other people for money. Not by some ephemeral down the line client who may or may never materialise, but by the person who puts his own money on the table.

Learn something useful in your life rather than listening to garbage political propaganda of the collectivist state.

Finally, you are realising that every employee is provided by a job by the employer. EMPLOYER - the person who decided that the job is necessary (for whatever reason at all) and figured out where to get the money to hire the EMPLOYEE.

Cause and effect, basics of reasoning. Cause: person A wants to do something, finds the money and as a result hires person B. Effect: person B has the job, the job was created by person A.

What the job is and what is produced is secondary. It may or may not end up being paid for by somebody else LATER. ....

There was no life in the Universe, not even planets or stars existed until there was a SUPPLY of material that allowed those to be created. Was there a demand or market for material to create stars before material existed? No. But once there was SUPPLY the market was FORMED.

Cause and effect. Not the other way around, no matter what liberal idiotic agenda wants to present, the agenda of people with political ideas that go directly against logic, reasoning, reality.

Same user, backup account given the mob bombing my account.

Every business is speculation that somebody will buy your product. Customers do not create jobs, people who pay money to the employees create jobs.

Whether those jobs produce something that some third party customer buys or that job is simply satisfying some demand of the employer it doesn't matter, the job is created by the person paying money.

Do you understand the concept of moving money out of your own bank account to somebody else's bank account or not? If you do, then you should imagine person A moving $$$ to person B in exchange for person B doing some work.

Person A created the job for person B by paying for it.

There may or may not be some other customer paying for the PRODUCT that was created in the process of doing the job, but the job is created by the person paying money in form of a salary to somebody.

Ok, so the solid part is created at the bottom of the vat is what you are implying, not at the top, which is what I originally assumed. I guess that makes more sense, as UV passes through a very thin layer of the resin it gets cured at the very bottom of that liquid resin container, so the model is created at the bottom part of all that liquid, not at the top.

Ok, let me be perfectly clear: I am against any vilification of any group by anybody and I am also against grouping people into any types of groups in the first place, that's how you get socialist movements, fascist movements, any sort of movements that destroy individual liberties.

As I said, I have no love for Harper, but I don't have any love for anybody who promises to solve people's problems by creating special treatment for them, I am against all forms of collectivism, against any type of privilege. No, money shouldn't be stolen from a single person even if you push agenda of 'helping the poor' or 'kids' or whatever.

My position is that in order to have a working society you have to have a rule based society, where rules cannot be bent for anybody under any circumstances, regardless of their circumstances, regardless of any cry to arms based on any negative experiences of any particular group.

The system based on rules is an ideological system, because it does not give anybody any preferential treatment, doesn't promise anybody to help them or to save them from anything. But that's the only way to build a society that is stable and doesn't rely on stealing from some to give to others, it is not based on any feelings and it shouldn't be.

Societies are falling apart today because of all the group entitlements, feelings, desires for 'social justice', where the term 'justice' is so perverted that in reality it means slavery if you actually care to look. Slavery of some for the benefit of others. You can't have it without locking the people you want to enslave up and throwing away the key, but you can't do that while pretending to be just at all.

No. I would rather have a libertarian and/or an anarcho capitalist and/or an objectivist who confirms to his ideology in the strongest way possible.

No, Harper may be many things but he is no Hitler. As to democracy - there hasn't been a more duplicitous system of government that promotes 'feel good' solutions while undermining the fundamental health of a nation through destruction of individual rights and creation of large, hydra-like government structures that actually destroy the economy and society.
