I'm sorry, you lost the right to put on the whole "Oh poor little AMD is being abused by the big bad monopolist!" the day that AMD came out with Mantle and started leveraging it's 100% monopoly in the console market in a much much worse way than Intel ever did with its 70 - 80% "monopoly" in the desktop market.

Oh totally. That uber-nazi libertarian Barack Obama has completely dismembered our One True God.. uh.. I mean "federal government" and left us in a Somali-like Warzone where there are absolutely no regulations of any kind and zero involvement of the HOLY Government in our healthcare!

Just imagine how many phone calls aren't being monitored because of his ruthless, radical extremist libertarianism!!

Damn you Obama and your laissez-fair disregard for our right to be told what to do by the HOLY federal bureacrats who are divine infallible beings!

Comment A few incovenient truths... (Score -1) 462

Fact: In the 1970's more people got vaccinations that today.
Fact: Atheism is more popular now in the U.S. than it was in the 1970's.
Conclusion: Atheism leads to a wave of anti-science bigotry that results in people not getting immunized. Case in point: Jenny McCarthy.

WAIT WHAT? You say that's a correlation == causation strawman argument?!!??!?!?

So is the snide comment in the original post that is automatically taken as "gospel" truth by people who have bigotry against other people based on their beliefs but justify being bigoted in the name of "science" with just as much logic to support their beliefs as was common when eugenics was the latest word in "science".

OH TOTALLY! When I think of the Venezuelan dictatorship, the very very first thing that springs to mind is how the tea party worships Hugo Chavez like a bunch of mindless drones!!

Thank God-Emperor Obama that Rachel Maddow and Sean Penn have exposed those evil tea partiers and their evil affiliation with the pro-free market radical libertarian venezuelan evil dictators!

Comment And people called Atlas Shrugged Fiction.... (Score 4, Insightful) 702

People said that the characters in Atlas Shrugged were two-dimensional cardboard cutouts and that real life is totally not like that... I guess they never went to Venezuela.

They also said that Ayn Rand would leave us in some sort of post-apocalyptic world with no police, firemen, schools, or anything basic services. Who knew that the entire city government of Detroit for the last 40 years were all a bunch of secret Ayn Rand worshipers who have finally put her dreams into action!?!?!?!??

There's one huge hole in your "jews are evil warmongers" conspiracy: Why do the West Bank and Gaza even exist if that big-bad Netanyahu wants to commit genocide so bad? International opposition? But you say they don't care about that?

Iran stopping Israel? Oh but wait, Iran is a peace-loving socialist paradise with no ambitions of ever making weapons, much less nuclear weapons, so.. since Israel just wants to strike Iran out of some lust for war.. how could Iran prevent Israel from doing anything it wants?

Face it, the Palestinians are oppressed... by their own leaders. If Israel was so hellbent on taking over that territory, it would have already happened, and they sure wouldn't have pulled their soldiers out.

Oh one other thing: anybody who says that using "Delphi" is somehow not "open-source" while using Java is "open source" doesn't understand the difference between a programming language in the abstract and a particular piece of software that compiles or interprets code written in the language in the concrete needs a head exam.

Something tells me these guys: would get offended if you tell them that they hate open source because they have an open source implementation of Delphi. Since Delphi is a descendant of Pascal, which has a long history in software education, it's not some evil conspiracy to use Delphi in a classroom setting.

"The South African Education Department has effectively banned the use of FOSS software in state-run schools by forcing all candidates writing the Computer Applications Technology examination to use Microsoft's Office 2010 or 2013 as the only supported options."

Fascinating, apparently MS-South Africa has sophisticated technology that seeks out and destroys all open source software simply because Microsoft Office is used for some tasks. This new learning is amazing! Tell me again how sheep-bladders can be used to prevent earthquakes!
