Comment Re:Slashdot is officially worse than breitbart now (Score 1) 191

Well, the Left and the Democrats have only themselves to blame. We all know this, right? Voting for Trump was the last, desperate move of ordinary Americans whose backs were up against the wall. Hillary promised open borders, Trans-Pacific Partnership, more free trade, more H1Bs, more exporting of jobs, and everything the heartless globalist political class wanted. They were going to stick it to America and they were going to make it HURT. On November 8th Americans' vision of America was going to die, Painfully.

And why shouldn't they vote for Trump, anyway? Hillary was already a 93%, 98% favorite. At this point, what difference does it make? Go down in flames, with a protest vote. And then he won, go figure.

If you want to know how we ended up like this, please watch this video: "President Trump: How & Why...". It is a must-view for people exactly like you for how the level of political discourse got so low. It's by a leftist, so you know he's telling the truth and has been fact-checked. It's really sad what he's saying and it is all 100% true. Never forget this: Trump is all your fault. If you had just been understanding and wanted to do what was right for Americans, this would never have happened. It's going to be a long eight years and hopefully during that time you will discover compassion for your countrymen, but I doubt it.

Comment Re: Finally, the gloves will come off! (Score 2) 1028

In Alan Turing's time, homosexuality and other gender/sexual "differences" were considered to be a deviant social choice, rather than an innate biological difference. Thus, such behaviors were socially shamed, criminalized, and treated as a mental illness. When the social engineering and therapy did not work to deter such behavior, however, society slowly learned that such individuals were indeed "born that way". Thus, a period of advocacy for tolerance began...and still continues today.

The irony is that we did not seem to fully learn from those lessons. The pendulum has just gone in the other direction. Thus, in our time, being a heterosexual and masculine male is now considered to be a deviant social choice. As a result, we are seeing such heterosexual and masculine behavior increasingly being socially shamed, criminalized, and treated as a mental illness. Much like other gender/sexual orientations, however, such social engineering, punishment, and propaganda are not having a significant effect on male masculine and heterosexual behavior either. The reason being, that such men are indeed "born that way" too.

immigrants from terrorists nations are incredibly well vetted.

So, are you living in Bizarro World where an Islamic terrorist didn't just drive a car through a crowd of people, come out slicing, and get drilled between the eyes by an alert policeman? How do you even make statements like this?

Why would any of those voters even need to come out? The media told them it was a lock for Hillary. 93%, 98% chance, so why go and stand in line for 5 hours? Oh, and isn't it racist to call them "terrorist nations"? WTF? Why is it suddenly OK when you use such horrid language, but anyone else says it gets banned?

Of course the CCP is acting in the interests of the whole people. It's not like there are campaign contributions, corporate thieves, and the other negatives of dumbocracy. It's just the smartest people in society, free from distractions, calmly making decisions for the people. That's what this social score is, it's a way to encourage virtue among the people. You're just insufficiently pro-Big Government so it looks weird to you. Trust me, the New York Times wouldn't have praised the Chinese system if it wasn't a good idea. Dumbocracy's time is done, Trump has showed that. Bravely into the future, comrades!

OK, I'll bite. This isn't true and here's the proof. Megan Twohey of the New York Times Was Caught in a Media Hoax. Or did we forget that already? It was a liberal elite media coverup.

CNN: You did use the word debase in the piece. Is that a word that Rowanne used used or that the women you spoke to used?

Twohey: So we heard a variety ofâ¦I meanâ¦.theâ¦theâ¦descriptions of Rowanee was one of many voicesâ¦.We really value the fact thatâ¦and I think that one of the things youâ(TM)ll see is thatâ¦

This is what a liar sounds like. You need more? Because there were plenty more during this election season. Remember how the DNC was exposed as paying for thugs to go and start violence at Trump rallies? Or how Michelle Fields lied about Corey Lewandowski? I can go on and on, there was tons of this stuff and the whole world saw it.

Comment Re:Yeah, GoPro (Score 0) 94

  • GoPro people like to think of themselves as heroes. It's being part of a brand, it's marking yourself as different when you walk down that trail with a camera sticking off your forehead. They feel special, and that's a very important feeling.
  • Documenting yourself doing an activity is more important than actually doing the activity. Witness the sea of phones recording at concerts.
  • You can get a GoPro clone like the SJCam SJ4000 for less than a hundred bucks. Most people can't tell the difference in the footage.

Comment Big government helping the people (Score 5, Interesting) 204

This is nothing but big government doing what it does best - helping its people. Instead of allowing the people to make their own decisions, it is making the correct decisions for them. And why not? The smartest people run the Chinese government. You can't be any geek off the street and join the Communist Party. You have to be smart and capable, and only the cream rises to the top. Why shouldn't these people be able to run society? I see people on Slashdot all the time bemoaning how stupid people ruin everything. See: Donald Trump voters. Things would be SO much better if we smart people just had to power to change things.

Isn't eliminating negative outcomes and ensuring positive outcomes one of the major arguments in favor of big government? This is what China is doing. Oh, it eliminates personal freedom? The personal freedom that Chinese people never had at any point in history? You mean "freedumb". Because people who bitch and moan about freedom all the time are precisely the ones who make such consistently wrong decisions. Why shouldn't the government step in and help them? Isn't that why we established governments in the first place?

Well, we're withdrawing from the rest of the world, like you asked us to. We're going to take all our troops home, from Europe, from Korea, from Japan, everywhere. You hate our guts. It's been shouted loud and clear for a long time and don't think we didn't get the message, because we did. Slashdot is a US-centric site and it will remain so.

Here's an idea: why don't you make your own tech site and it can be worldly? You can have global citizens posting and ban everything but metric units and so on. It'll be bliss. Off with you now, get to work and stop bothering the Americans.

I am not a shill and I have a Tap because a friend of my had an Echo and I loved it, mostly b/c I use Prime Music a ton and my young kids can easily interact w/the device to play what they want. Several of my friends have purchased the devices after using mine.

I mean, popular? No, not nearly as much as Amazon may like you to believe; however, they are pretty great devices for what they are and I think the recognition software is world's better than Siri (which, IMO, is completely and utterly useless and I never use on my Mac or phone).

By all means, be skeptical, however it doesn't mean they're not being used by people and they're not any good.

Yeah, that's because you were already a leftist. But seriously, how can you be a leftist and be for right-wing things like nationalism? Hillary promised us more and more and more globalism, and fuck the American worker. Her plan was to give citizenship to fuckloads of Syrians, WTF? How would that possibly help the American people?

How can you be simultaneously pro-Obama and anti-globalism? That's like being pro-Hitler and pro-Semite. They're two ideas that don't go together.

The whole "calling people racist for disagreeing with Obama's globalist vision of the future" went out of fashion the day after Election Day. Maybe you didn't get the memo?
