Comment Stop lying (Score 1) 172

Former Eastern Block countries have some great "IT people" who could do great in a normal environment...but there are no "normal" jobs for them. So, they get hired by criminal organizations instead. Everyone's got to eat.

Stop lying. You're describing Eastern Europe cca. 1995.

Nowadays, more than 20 years after, the situation is the exact opposite: not enough IT people compared with available jobs in the local market. Moreover, non-local job opportunities all over the EU drain the IT people from Eastern Europe.

Comment Shameless opportunists being refused a free ride (Score 1) 234

There was nothing "cult-like".

The networking team at Apple understood there could be a huge business opportunity to build a business over stock OCP, so they thought Apple should pay their bills while they are learning OCP and iterate various ideas. Understanding that Apple won't pay for their OCP education, the team chose to keep going on their predetermined course.

Since Apple anyway joined OCP later on, it's possible they used this situation to weed out the opportunists who tried to ride Apple for their own further goals.

Comment Fascism =/= totalitarian (Score 0, Flamebait) 379

Fascist assholes who simply want to silence their opposition are all over the spectrum, sadly.

By definition Fascists, being on the extreme left (as they are an offshoot of Socialism, just like the Nazis), can't be "all over the spectrum".

You may be thinking of totalitarian minded people (or whatever you want to call that).

The bombers came from the US and the napalm came from the US. The war (and the atrocities) doesn't happen without US imperialism.

The truth is that the killings and suffering in Vietnam increased tenfold after the Americans were gone and the civilians were left to face the Communists.

It's okay to suck Communist dick, I just hope you do that for money (as opposed to being so dumb to do it for free).

The end of the "Rule of Law" story, I guess you mean? Shame. It had its problems, but on average I was a fan. The sequel, "Despotic and Arbitrary Kleptocracy", sounds like it's going to suck.

As you can see Slashdot is full of leftist retards. They'll understand their own extreme cretinism only when it will be too late.

So, they got Ireland's tax authority's "blessing" to not pay taxes to other countries. Isn't that nice. Getting a third party's consent doesn't give you the right to not pay taxes in the place where income is earned.

If I get Ireland's blessing to tell me "you don't have to pay US taxes", that does not affect my IRS income tax bill.

You must be truly dumb to not comprehend this is about Ireland giving the blessing of not paying taxes *IN IRELAND*.

"centrist Hillary"

Only a Bolshevik would call Hillary Clinton a "centrist". She's a leftist from the Democratic party.

"Bernie's views matched mine better than hers do"

Ah, that explains.

Listen, Bernie Sanders is a Commie. The US Constitution gives you the right to be a Commie, but not to be stupid. Claiming a liberal such as Hillary Clinton is "centrist" is plain stupid.

Comment Leftist shit (Score 0) 367

Leftist newspaper cries crocodile tears for the future fate of some people. Same people which helped destroy the livelihood of some taxi drivers, another reason for another round of crocodile tears for the leftist Guardian.

Guardian doesn't give a shit about Uber drivers. Guardian simply plays the same leftist shit as usual: capitalism is only bad, UK is only bad, UK past is only bad, USA is only bad, USA past is only bad, economic change is only bad (except when it's associated with a heavy dose of leftist propaganda - then it's all fine, please have some more).
