Comment Oh, he will... (Score 1) 488

He will definitely surprise America and the World.
Just not in the way you think.

My only consolation about this mess is that the people he will hurt most will be the ignorant midwestern poor who voted for him.

I personally am already comfortable enough to not care what he does, short of nuclear war. And even then, I have done some prepping. But the rest of you may be in for a shock.

Actually, NO, it is not free to cut the cord. I tried to cancel my service with verizon which I've had for at least 7 years and they want to charge me $70 to cancel, claiming I have a "contract", which they are in violation of for raising my rates from the $99 per month to $146 per month with no service upgrades whatsoever.

Comment Verizon does this too (Score 1) 166

Verizon recently introduced a $2.80 (plus taxes) fee for my FIOS router, which they claim is old -- and to "support it" they need this monthly fee.

Never mind that this is their equipment to start with. Now, my choice is to pay the fee every month or buy a "new" ($70) router, with no guarantee that they won't pull this exact same stunt next year.

.... and yet you'd probably be the first to complain if we elected someone who wanted to tax the rich bastards at a 50% tax rate, which would benefit everyone.

That money could be used to feed the hungry, rebuild roads and bridges, pay for basic research that corporations no longer do, and help us pay off the crushing debt we are already under.

Comment This is a scam??? (Score 0) 117

60 million people voted for Donald Trump, and you're complaining about a few dumb folks getting scammed by the Mac OS store?

Dude, the whole freaking country of 320 million people just got scammed by a con man.

Scams are the new normal. Get used to it.

Comment less regulation == GOOD! (Score 1) 333

And remember that our new president wants less regulation on business, so expect more of this bait and switch in the future.

Hell, you will be lucky if your food contains food. Remember how the chinese were selling cardboard as food? That's us in the future, being "competitive" -- we must close the cardboard as food gap.

I for one, welcome our fake aloe bearing overlords.

Comment So why did the FBI have to crack the iPhone? (Score 1) 124

Remember when the FBI was laying heavily on Apple to crack open the iPhone of that Terrorist dude that shot up the work-party in California? Apple refused, and this was a story for weeks in the news. John McAfee claimed his guys could crack it in 14 hours or something?

Anyway, if Apple retains all this data, why was cracking the iPhone such a big deal? Is half the news (or maybe more) all made-up bullshit just to entertain me?

Maybe Trump isn't really president and the news is just telling me that to keep me watching. I can't trust anything anymore. Never mind being in the Matrix, it's freaking reality that doesn't seem real.

Comment Peter Theil (Score 4, Insightful) 978

So, I see an echo chamber that the far right creates their OWN version of twitter, kind of like how the right created their own "news" organization.

And so begins the true divide in the country, where the fox news people feed their own echo chamber via alt-twitter, and the liberals have msnbc and twitter.

And the two sides never speak to each other.
