Actually, there is almost no written proof that Yehoshua bin Yosef existed, except as a literary device invented by Paul to spread reform Judaism. Most notably, the Romans, who kept meticulous records, had absolutely none about any trial, crucifixion, or other acts supposedly undertaken by Pontius Pilate. It's like he was never there at all.

Now Muhammad? We know he existed independent of his scripture. Same thing for Joseph Smith

Comment Re:Decommissioning servers (Score 1) 569

Did you run shred on a server after the FBI said it wanted the data on it?

HILLARY CLINTON AND HER TEAM DID NOT DO THIS.

My god, this is like the fifth person to falsely claim that she did in this discussion. Don't you people read jack shit before you post? Or it is all "Beitbart" and the "Weekly World News", Hillary Clinton with space alien? You seriously imagine that the GOP in Congress wouldn't be trying to find her in Contempt if she'd done anything like this? That the FBI wouldn't have done a thing?!?

"In fact, Trey Gowdy did not issue a subpoena until March, months after she she'd done that review. Further, the subpoena was specifically asking for documents pertaining to Libya and the attacks on our facility in Benghazi, documents which, along with tens of thousands of others, she had already given to the Department of State," Merrill said.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the Benghazi panel, called Gowdy's hit Wednesday a "stunt."

"It appears clear that Secretary Clinton was answering a question about whether she deleted emails 'while facing a subpoena,'" Cummings said in a statement Wednesday.

God DAMN do I want silly season to be over, where people will go back to merely lying about their high scores on games, rather than crap like this

You are correct to a point. Cleaning up is a good thing to do before decommissioning a server, but doing that after a subpoena for those emails is called destruction of evidence.

And Hillary Clinton didn't do this, although it's now becoming very apparent that people who dislike her incorrectly imagine that she did,

Um WRONG, her lawyers and her went through said emails then deleted them AFTER they subpoena for them it wasn't before the fact.

Um, YOU are the one who is WRONG. The subpoena was issued in March. They were deleted in thew previous December.

I don't want to spam slashdot with a bunch of redundant posts, but this is just flat out factually incorrect. You can see my other posts where I link to sources.

Here is what we know for a fact, 30k emails WERE deleted after the subpoena.

Again (and I have to repeat myself because this keeps coming up), this is a 100% FALSE assertion.The emails were deleted in December. Gowdy issued the subpoena (and, mind you, only for Benghazi related subjects) in March.

Remember everyone, the DNC can be hacked and the Clinton campaign can be hacked, but there's NO WAY IN THE WORLD that Hillary's homebrew email server was hacked. Nope. Not possible. Pure as the driven snow.

You mean that sarcastically, but it's basically true. Hacking a server is one thing. Hacking a server without leaving any tracks whatsoever is insanely difficult. Hillary Clinton's server was examined by top FBI forensic analysts, and no breach was detected. This is unlike the system she supposedly "should" have been using, OpenNet (the state.gov email system), which has been hacked so many times, they judge them by how bad they are Sources: State Dept. hack the 'worst ever'. Every other hack has been detected and analyzed - it strains credulity that of all these emails servers, only clintonemail.com would have been hacked so perfectly that there was no trace left, even in the many backups.

This doesn't mean that the Russians don't have her emails, since anything sent to a state.gov email address was copied by them. But that's not Secretary Clinton's fault, and the sheer incompetence of State's IT department (their "solution" to her emails going to people's spam bucket wasn't to whitelist clintonemail.com, but to turn off all spam filtering), lends credence to the idea that she was just trying to work around some very incompetent people in the bureaucracy to get her job done.

What is absolutely proven at this point, is that if she'd done things the "right way", then all her emails would be now in the possession of foreign intelligence agencies. Having clintonemail.com didn't hurt, and may in certain ways, helped.

I'm sure you'll make a million dollars or so scamming all the wanting-to-believe teabaggers, and prompt some GOP congressman to ask very strange questions next time she's up on the Hill.

If not Trump, then who do you recommend I vote for?

A Democratic member of congress and Democratic national senator from your state.

Just FYI, we have a pretty damned good President now who has for five years asked Congress to do basic stuff, like not give tax credits to companies for their exporting American jobs, and instead give those tax credits to companies bringing jobs into the United States. No go from the Republicans. They listen to people like Carly Fiorina.

So stop focusing so much on the presidency. No matter who is President, if we have an old-school Republican congress, American workers, including American IT workers, are going to be screwed.

I don't trust that this is an accurate representation of what the treaty actually says, any more than I trusted Republicans about the whole Obamacare "death panels" B.S. Hell, the thing is filed under "Censorship" this site, and flat out, combating the piracy of musicians cannot be described as that.

When they have a less one-sided summary, post it. It might be interesting.
