Comment Nauseating (Score 1) 240

Nauseating that such a thing would even be considered by a crowd that once prided itself on both doing and thinking for yourself. Who fact-checks the facts, for fsck's sake?

Almost every IT person I know, when queried in private or in groups sympathetic to their political views, would happily 'fix' voting software if given the opportunity.

I don't trust ANY of these bastards farther than I can throw them. Nor any of YOU for that sake!

Comment Re:Why is there Apple? (Score 1) 287

Time is money and Apple saves me time. I would rather spend money at this point then time figuring out how to do something in Linux or removing malware from Windows. I loved learning and hacking Linux in the past when I was single and had plenty of empty hours where I could do as I pleased, but nowadays not so much. With OSX I get a stable and consistent desktop experience, tons of software compatibility without a goose chase of broken dependencies AND a UNIX command line that is integral to the system and not just tacked on as an afterthought.

Comment Amazing (Score 1) 125

Amazing how nicely this theory dovetails with the whole Global Warming Armageddon / Endless Folly Of Mankind narrative. Apparently the Venusians didn't embrace global Marxism quickly enough and the rest of us can now bear witness to the results of their woefully greedy and misguided Capitalist ways.

Comment Re:Won't SOMEBODY Please Think Of The Scientists? (Score 1) 104

Honestly, it amazes me that so many allegedly "educated" people have fallen so quickly and so hard for a fraudulent fabrication of such laughable proportions. The very idea that a gigantic ball of Twitter data happens to orbit our networks, showing itself in neat, four-week cycles -- with the same interface accessible to us all the time -- is ludicrous. Furthermore, it is an insult to common sense and a damnable affront to intellectual honesty and integrity. That people actually believe it is evidence that the liberals have wrested the last vestiges of control of our public school system from decent, God-fearing Americans (as if any further evidence was needed! REST? God Almighty!)

Documentaries such as Learn Python In Less Than A Day have accurately portrayed the elaborate, byzantine network of surveillance apps that the liberals have sent into the interwebs to spy on law-abiding Americans. Equipped with technology developed by Twitter, Inc., these code snippets have the ability to detect browser cookies from hundreds of kilometers up. That's right, neighbors .. the next time you're out in the backyard exercising your Second Amendment rights, Jack Dorsey will see it as a string of JSON! These recursive algorithms are sensitive enough to tell the difference between a key and a value! And when they detect you with a message, their computers cross-reference the address to figure out your name, and then an enormous database housed at Berkeley is updated with information about you.

The Moon: A Ridiculous Liberal Myth

It amazes me that so many allegedly "educated" people have fallen so quickly and so hard for a fraudulent fabrication of such laughable proportions. The very idea that a gigantic ball of rock happens to orbit our planet, showing itself in neat, four-week cycles -- with the same side facing us all the time -- is ludicrous. Furthermore, it is an insult to common sense and a damnable affront to intellectual honesty and integrity. That people actually believe it is evidence that the liberals have wrested the last vestiges of control of our public school system from decent, God-fearing Americans (as if any further evidence was needed! Daddy's Roommate? God Almighty!)

Documentaries such as Enemy of the State have accurately portrayed the elaborate, byzantine network of surveillance satellites that the liberals have sent into space to spy on law-abiding Americans. Equipped with technology developed by Handgun Control, Inc., these satellites have the ability to detect firearms from hundreds of kilometers up. That's right, neighbors .. the next time you're out in the backyard exercising your Second Amendment rights, the liberals will see it! These satellites are sensitive enough to tell the difference between a Colt .45 and a .38 Special! And when they detect you with a firearm, their computers cross-reference the address to figure out your name, and then an enormous database housed at Berkeley is updated with information about you.

Of course, this all works fine during the day, but what about at night? Even the liberals can't control the rotation of the Earth to prevent nightfall from setting in (only Joshua was able to ask for that particular favor!) That's where the "moon" comes in. Powered by nuclear reactors, the "moon" is nothing more than an enormous balloon, emitting trillions of candlepower of gun-revealing light. Piloted by key members of the liberal community, the "moon" is strategically moved across the country, pointing out those who dare to make use of their God-given rights at night!

Yes, I know this probably sounds paranoid and preposterous, but consider this. Despite what the revisionist historians tell you, there is no mention of the "moon" anywhere in literature or historical documents -- anywhere -- before 1950. That is when it was initially launched. When President Josef Kennedy, at the State of the Union address, proclaimed "We choose to go to the moon", he may as well have said "We choose to go to the weather balloon." The subsequent faking of a "moon" landing on national TV was the first step in a long history of the erosion of our constitutional rights by leftists in this country. No longer can we hide from our government when the sun goes down.

Well said. My guess is that the AGW data follies will continue in much the same way that the videos damning ACORN did. One batch of data is released, creates a small furor which the AGW fanatics scramble to contain and explain. A little while later another batch will magically appear, contradicting directly much of what the fanatics said previously in their defense. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Whether this will do any good or not remains to be seen. The entire mass media and university and public education crowd are in with the fanatics, hook line and sinker, but the playing field is changing more quickly than anyone can effectively keep up with.

Interesting times!
