Comment If you want to write a book, just do it (Score 2) 381

Sure, yeah, you could take a few weekend courses and bang out some stuff and possibly even find a job paying decent money.

But if you want to move up in the world you need to turn your hack and slash techniques into a refined art.

The kind of crap commodity programmers write is the stuff that skilled developers get paid a lot of money cleaning up or just re-implementing.

It the difference between dime store trashy romance novels and real actual novels. The different between the the Divergent movies and Hunger Games.

If you're content being a direct to DVD wholesaler of crap sure, just get to work.

If you want to work in the big leagues on important things, you need to be open to learning some things and respect the craft.

Comment Clearly We Need Government Intervention (Score 0, Offtopic) 403

This obsession with "fake" news is all about one thing: government censorship.

All this study proves is that young kids are gullible (duh) and our public education system is one of the worst in the world (not news).

First liberals complained about Citizens United endlessly. And now that Trump won with far less spending than Hillary, suddenly they're concerned about "fake" news while ignoring the false editorializing of the liberal media and rampant lead burying.

Liberal Fascists just can't stand that they no longer control the narrative. And it's really a thumb in their eye whenever Trump tweets out something they don't like. Historically, if the President wanted to say something, they had to go through the filter of the press.

Not anymore.

And good riddance.

Comment You Can't Be Serious (Score 1) 243

"Michael also believes that Trump has been singled out by God to be president of the United States, a conspiracy theory popular with 4chan users who believe that Pepe the Frog is a reincarnation of an ancient Egyptian deity."

This is your story? Do people also seriously believe in the flying spaghetti monster?

Liberals are really digging deep for their Gulf of Tonkin to establish their Ministry of Information to "protect" us from contrary information.

First they came for Pepe the Frog...

Hillary is only winning those who make less than 35K a year.

She's not winning college educated voters. She's winning diploma holding voters who can't support themselves. If you have a degree and not a good job then access to higher education was not your problem.

People who support themselves are for the most part supporting Trump.

Comment Who says the amounts are equal? (Score 1) 338

Clinton has been in public office for 30 years and is a big steaming pile of evil and now we have the emails to prove it.

Despite the Liberal narrative, there isn't much being "exposed" about Trump because there's nothing there to expose that isn't already public.

It's just anti-intellectualism to assume every person running for office is equally corrupt.

Liberals just can't accept the facts: Clinton is evil. Trump says mean things.

Nintendo should have had a TV out option on its portables long ago. The games are a lot of fun and if you have to play on a small screen, fine but I'd really like to play on a big screen when home.

Since they went with cartridges it wouldn't be a surprise if it's backwards compatible with 3DS games.

Also with flash storage vastly over performing spinning media, it's a very smart move to go back to cartridges instead of sticking to whatever spinning disks are currently available.

Comment No affordable 4K projectors yet (Score 1) 207

The last "HD" TV I bought was 8 years ago and was a 32" 720p. It has long been replaced with digital projectors. I get a much bigger "screen" for about the same money.

You're much better off with a 1080p digital projector than some TV. Most TV viewing happens in the evening anyway so lighting isn't much of an issue.

With 4K, a monitor is your most affordable option.

That's the audio of her laughing about getting a child molester off. The tapes were buried and the media refuses to play them. Snopes still calls it "false" even though we have the audio now.

It's not disputed that she attacked the women who accused her husband of rape and sexual assault.

The current FBI investigation turned up the fact that she mishandled classified information and they said flat out anyone else would be prosecuted.

So yes, she is being protected by the media and friends.

She's a walking dead politician.

At least Nixon had the integrity to resign.

Comment Re:So then Hillary is the warmonger (Score 1) 531


Hillary and Obama have been arming terrorists to fight proxy wars against Russian interests.

Our government is running around assassinating foreign leaders through proxy and Russia is going around nation building and somehow Russia is the bad guy.

They're going to happily expose Hillary for what an evil hag she is because they're tired of being fought by terrorists armed by the US government.

It has nothing to do with "weakening" the US and everything to do with ending unnecessary conflict and bloodshed.

Trump wants to renegotiate trade deals and enable peaceful commerce between nations and he's the crazy one.

I imagine there's a correlation between Gen X people who aren't well off and media consumption as well.

Media consumption is far more plentiful. Cable was not something everyone had back in the Gen X days. There was not 24 hours of content available every day.

The problem is simply getting worse.

The solution, as always, is to find something productive to do in your youth.
