Comment You know what'd be more useful, Google? (Score 1) 4

Let me - and everyone else - rate the search results themselves; and let us see how they've been rated!

I get really tired of highly-placed search results which don't contain any actual information. Some onerous sites are really good at gaming the results returned by Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, and the rest. But being able to see, at a glance, that 50 people gave a search result only one out of five stars would let me know not to waste time clicking on that particular link.

This has nothing to do with 'deserving', the point is that nobody at all is forcing anybody to drive for Uber.

I run a company of my own, at times I made not simply less than minimum wage would be, but in a number of cases I was paying people who work for me out of pocket, as in I was losing money, not making it. *Nobody* forced me to do this, it's a private personal decision.

I actually know people who aren't very bright, who are doing much better economically than people with Master's Degrees, because they don't attach stigmas to certain kinds of work that pay more than burger flipping. It is hard nasty work that doesn't require any skill. When you think certain kinds of work are "beneath you" you're already a wage slave.

Comment Re:White supremacists banned, Black ones -- protec (Score 1) 64

while protecting the Black ones?

Did you link the right story? I don't see what it had to do with Twitter.

What I linked to had to do with BLM containing Black Supremacists, bent not merely on subjugating or mocking, but outright killing Whites. That Twitter protects them is covered by TFA itself.

I am so Partisan, I am a Libertarian!

Yes, I haven't voted for either (R) or (D) in 30 years ... partisan. Yes, there is plenty of hypocrisy, and the Ds are worse that the Rs on Election Hypocrisy but they both are hypocritical.

Who was caught doing what?

Ok so now, there is no evidence of any hacking, I thought that was what Obama was looking for. Is he on a wild goose chase or is that some sort of partisan response to an election that will basically undo his whole "legacy?

Not sure what you're point is, other than to assume I am something I am not.

the issue that the federal government is meddling with stupid shit that is not within its charter.

- correct.

guarantee that I can find a job

- also not within their authority, because to *guarantee* a job to person A would mean to guarantee that other people have to subsidise that job. It's direct transfer from one person to another. OTOH government should step aside and *not diminish your chances* of finding a job by destroying the economy, that would be nice.

Comment That's the best reason to buy bitcoin (Score 1) 48

I don't know who wants this stuff other than the criminals

But that's exactly the point; buying BitCoin is a lot like being able to buy into a mutual fund solely dedicated to criminal profits!

It's the ultimate hedge, the worse off society gets the more rewarding crime (and therefore your Bitcoin) becomes!

Man...this seems to happen to ALL "cool" companies.

They start out often quite employee centric....sure you work hard, but they give you lots of perks at work, free food drinks, kitchens, parties on and off campus...even keggers....

And then..they get a bit too big, the owners cede management to more managerial types, who count pennies but don't know the worth of a HAPPY EMPLOYEE....and then well, the fun and perks start to disappear, and soon....it is like any other boring job, and those little extras that build team work, or make you feel 'ok' about working a few extra hours to get something out the door, *vanish*.

At that point, unless the pay is insanely good...no real reason to stay or show any type of loyalty whatsoever.

The soul of the company is gone.
