It's weird. I remember when a sitting president was sued for sexual assault, and at the time Democrats didn't seem to find the allegations credible. Nor the rape allegations. Well, I'm sure they had their reasons beyond just, you know, rank hypocrisy.

If Democrats didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all. :-P

Has it now gotten to the point where I am more likely to be lynched for being like Hugh Hefner than Bruce Jenner?

The way they're going, you're more likely to be lynched for continuing to refer to Bruce Jenner by the name his parents gave him at birth.

Of course, the bastards will then come after me for this post because IDGAF about Bruce's delusions...or theirs.

But with all that Trump has said or promoted, I've not seen yet where he came out to promote the agenda that is against equality in matters of gender and race.

You haven't seen him say it because he hasn't said it. The extreme-left noise machine has thrown out all of charges, and their stenographers in the "mainstream" media have reliably parroted it far and wide.

Comment I am afraid of self driving cars (Score 1) 186

Until it's legal for me to set my destination and lay down in the back seat of the car and and enjoy some beer and television with a guaranteed safety record better than air travel - I don't want "self driving" cars around me.

Your mechanical failure can end my life.

That's just my opinion.

Woot recently had the Latitude 7370 available, starting under $600 for a refurb. Near as I can tell, it's the same basic design as the XPS 13, but with Win10 Pro instead of Home and some more business-oriented features. (On closer examination, it also looks like it has a second Thunderbolt port instead of a second USB port.) I've not gotten around to installing Linux on it yet, but once secure boot was switched off, it ran SystemRescueCD and the latest Gentoo LiveDVD from a USB stick without any issues. Nice little machine. It's small enough that you can use it on a plane even if you're not in first class or an exit row...most other notebooks are so large that either the screen will be at an uncomfortable viewing angle or the front edge will be poking you in the chest. Already took a look at the manual. Except for RAM (soldered on), everything's upgradable once you unscrew the bottom cover. Mine has a 128GB M.2 SSD; if anything's a candidate for an upgrade, that is, especially if I'm going to have it dual-boot.

I am all for you bee whatever.

As long as they take a Mike Rowe test to earn it.

They have to be willing to work a week at La's lift pumps hosing down walls, as well as working a week of garbage related stuff.

They have to go thru a course of "Willing to work anywhere" and then prove they can't find a job.

After that? Cool, guess they can't find a job scraping gum off of sidewalks.

The most amusing bit about the democrats response isn't the fact they aren't screaming "LIES!" It's the fact that they are pointing at Russia and yelling "Those dicks did that!"

My guess is that if the defense is true - she pissed them off with the reset button!

Or not.

According to that she was in bed with Putin.

that does ignore this book


Which tells where the "reset button" was swiped from.

It amazes me that people forget that hillary reset relations and simultaneously screams about hacking.Was she a complete failure back then? Or is she lying now?

Let China do what it wants to do, speaking as an american we need to rethink the space program and stop being nationalistic over it.

I'll applaud China, or Russia, or The EU landing on Mars first as heartily as I would America.

I just wish all of the space nations would stop doing it for dick measuring, and instead worked together and made sure we as the world got the best bang for the buck.

Until then, I'm all for not participating in any race to the stars.
