Comment Re:It's simpler than that (Score 4, Interesting) 335

It was never one thing. The GOP had 8 years to craft a strategy against HRC. They knew she would be running after Obama and keeping the negative spot light on her was second only to discrediting the Obama administration. Clinton was no "shittier" than any other politician, so the only way for the GOP to win was to indict politicians as a whole. This lead to Trumps win and even thought it was not the way they wanted it, they were more than willing to jump on the bandwagon.

Comment Fatal flaw of Democracy (Score 1) 335

It is an idealistic notion of one-man, one-vote until you realize that the person who studies the issues, understands the world views, and makes an educated choice has the same vote as a person who makes their choice based on rumors and colorful advertisements. Clearly being liked is far more important to far more people than being qualified for elected office.

Let me quote "Good Luck With That" You have a Republican House and Senate who signed a pledge to support their candidate. Any one who doesn't fall in line will see their re-election bids vanish as Trump outs them to their constituents. Lets see how those checks and balances hold up against a "Mandate"

"If alien civilizations had arisen 1 billion years before ours, and developed technology beyond our dreams, wouldn't they at least leave a trail of some kind?" An ant crawling on your arm is unaware that you represent a species that has studied quantum physics or explored space. To it, you are a warm obstacle to crawl over. Physicist aren't even certain how large the periodic table could be, It would be the height of hubris to assume that we understand the warm obstacle that we are crawling over.

Comment The "enlightend" /. Poster (Score 1) 527

If for no other reason, post like this serve the purpose of exposing the true lack of enlightenment of most Slashdot posters. This is a non-issue for anyone with any tech savvy, but slap DJT in the title and it becomes about freedom and kicking out Syrian refugees. If you agree with Trump on this matter, you really don't understand the issue (like him) and probably have no business being here.
