You're willfully missing the point.

Clinton is questionable as hell, and that is why she wasn't elected.

Trump promised (or technically implied so, maybe there is a literal swamp he'll be draining somewhere) to clean things up. Now, he is putting people into government that were throwing money at him. Sure, they're a transition team and all that, but so much for a clean break. Screaming Clinton this, Clinton that doesn't make Trumps hypocrisy any better.

Comment How are the Rep's different? (Score 2, Insightful) 488

How would a Republican president, even Trump, be different in curtailing "More global interventionist policies, larger and more intrusive government, and a supreme court that will rubber stamp all of it."

What has Bush Jr. (the last Rep. prez) , or the republican congress done in the last, say 16 years, done to stop or slow any of these things?

9.5-ish or so, but makes for a more dramatic headline.

Google is doing it's best to piss off it's android partners lately, which can't be good for the long-term viability. Yeah, they all deserve to be slapped for the half-assed job they do supporting their phones, but Google knew that full well going in.

It took 20 days from the mod being released (Oct. 1st), and maybe two or so weeks since it got some attention and started appearing in videos for these guys to issue the take down. And, not even going after the mod itself (I think), but only a video of it. That's some grade A lawyering we got here.

Comment Senator outsources replies (Score 1) 813

It's as if the good Senator outsourced (or at least automated) her replies. Though I am surprised she hasn't needed to create a standard form letter specifically to IT outsourcing, it seems to happen frequently enough.

If it isn't outsourced or fully automated it's some poor intern going through hundreds of these emails each day.

Or, maybe it's not feasible yet. One is lucky to get a couple days of battery life out of the current batch of smart watches, the ones that are just remote controls. Enabling GPS cuts this down to hours. Adding a full fledged cell service that would be on all the time just isn't feasible yet*.

*I think one of the Samsung watches can make/receive calls, no idea about its battery life, or overall usefulness of it.

Comment Really? (Score 0) 268

You seriously expect her to know the ins and outs of IT security? Really?

Did you really think that at any point she would have been like: You know, It was raining on Sunday, so I was flipping through the email setup manual from the DoD, and I did a quick audit of my email server, here's a list of things that need to be fixed.


Back to these clowns, who in their right mind wouldn't just add her email, domain, or ip to the white list? I'm guessing the same clowns that were thinking "Hey, we got this notice that Hillary set up her own email server and now wants email routed there, good for her, you go girl!" instead of raising some alarms.
