I love how graphs made by deniers even have a hockey stick.

But they drew a little lip at the end, from which they can project centuries of flat temperature, or perhaps even a decrease!

They should make up their minds. If the warming trend is natural and not at all bad for us, why not draw the graph realistically? What compels them to sugar-coat their own sad "me too" rebuttal?

Other than name calling

I wasn't calling you a name, I am asserting you are stupid. The evidence is your belief in a conspiracy. Do you deny the evidence?

Name one thing that Clinton has done *ever* that has benefited the American people?

Well, for one thing, she just trounced Sniffles McPumpkinface, which was better value for our entertainment dollar than all episodes of "The Apprentice" combined.

Why is it that, in the media, everything Trump does is "bad".

Probably because everything he says or does in the public sphere is cringeworthy.

Why don't you go one step further and claim that his own words were placed in his mouth by the liberal media conspiracy. You guys are practically that dumb already.

Submission + - U of Calif. San Diego chancellor is a director of outsoucer hired by UCSF (computerworld.com)

dcblogs writes: The offshore outsourcing planned at the University of California's San Francisco (UCSF) campus is following a standard playbook. The affected employees expect to train their replacements as a condition of severance. Their jobs will soon be in India and they'll be out of work. But the chancellor of the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), Pradeep K. Khosla, may still be getting compensated by HCL Infosystems. It is one of the units of India-based HCL, the IT services contractor hired by the university. Khosla is an independent and non-executive director on the HCL Infosystems board of directors. Khosla has reported his HCL compensation to the university at $12,000 last year for 56 hours of total time served. He also earns $12,000 from Infosys Science Foundation as chair of the engineering and computer science jury, according to the compensation report. When asked if the university's contract with HCL creates a conflict for Khosla, a UCSD spokeswoman,replied: "The contract was negotiated between UCSF and HCL; it did not involve Chancellor Pradeep Khosla in any way, nor was it discussed at any HCL meeting that Chancellor Khosla attended." But the HCL contract can be leveraged by any UC campus. The "HCL agreement is UC-wide," according to notes from the university's system-wide Architecture Committee. "Other CIOs looking at UCSF experience before other folks dip in. Wait for a year before jumping in with HCL." Another issue for the university may be having an association generally with the offshore outsourcing industry, which works at displacing U.S. IT workers, including computer science grads of institutions such as the University of California.

It (HSR) was never going to work, and even if they built it, would lose money, and require more and more Subsidies. The Train was never going to work, it was a payoff to the Unions for their support of Liberal Democrat election campaigns. It was never going to work, because it was already under funded and over budget even before the first train rolled out of the station.

Reality is a bitch to people wearing rose tinted glasses.

The reality is, HyperLoop is much more attractive .. at least in concept.

Robert Byrd can renounce everything he did, but that doesn't negate that he did those things. And I have never seen Donald Trump actually courting racists "Hey KKK, I want your vote". In fact, I have seen him courting black people quite a lot, and there are enough black people who don't believe Clinton's "act" in front of Black people (Fake "black" accent, "hot sauce" comments etc).

"David Duke endorsed me? OK, alright. I disavow, OK?" Trump said, seeking to quickly move on to another question.

Apparently that isn't good enough for you. .

Keep in mind, I am NOT voting for Trump. Gary Johnson for me 100% But the KKK has also endorsed Hillary, and I don't see you protesting her.

I'd be interested in a description of the ideal configuration for a home network that includes IoT devices.

Should I have multiple routers so that I "nest" my networks. So have one network "right off the Internet" for less secure things such as IoT and then have a more secure network as a sub-network to the IoT network? So the IoT network can't see anything in the sub-network but is also protected by whatever firewall settings I decide to set?

Submission + - F-35A Catches Fire at Mountain Home Air Force Base (defensenews.com)

theweatherelectric writes: Writing for Defense News, Valerie Insinna reports that another F-35 has caught fire during an exercise. She writes, "The incident took place at around noon and involved an F-35A aircraft from the 61st Fighter Squadron located at Luke Air Force Base, the service said in a statement. No serious injuries seem to have been sustained by the pilot or nearby crew.

'The pilot had to egress the aircraft during engine start due to a fire from the aft section of the aircraft,' Air Force spokesman Capt. Mark Graff said in an email. 'The fire was extinguished quickly. As a precautionary measure, four 61st Aircraft Maintenance Unit Airmen, three Airmen from the 366th Maintenance Group and the 61st Fighter Squadron pilot were transported to the base medical center for standard evaluation.'"

As ridiculous as it is, I don't think anyone really cares. People have largely made their decisions long ago and there's little opinion to sway. There was a study pretty much demonstrating this just recently.

However, I'm just a Canadian eating my popcorn, watching the shit show ensue.

Comment Re: Echo chamber (Score 1) 847

The LIbertarians had at least four people running. They only put one on the ballot, because Libertarians do not believe the government should be a part of ANY political party's election. Libertarians don't have any problem with political parties putting their own candidate (singular) on the ballot, what they oppose is the Government sponsoring party politics via the "primary" process.

Can you give me one good reason why the government should sponsor (private) party elections?
