Comment Didn't they just yuk-yuk comment over old movies? (Score 2) 83

Please correct me if i am wrong but wasn't this thing all about some silhouette of a robot and another thing yaking it up with forced comedy commentary on old movies running in the background? Why does it cost on the high-end of tv production of $1 million per episode (or $5.5m for a full season) ? Good luck.

Comment Wolf-Pac seems better than Mayday -- Question.. (Score 2) 308

This seems like a simpler version of Wolf-Pac.com who aims to pass get a Constitutional Amendment. The problem i see with Mayday is that although it is aiming to elect officials to pass campaign finance reform the problem is those same politicians once in will be spending most of their day (as all other politicans currently do) looking for the next source of campaign funding -- and last i checked the highest funder gets the most attention and sway by these politicians. Mayday is limited in how much influence it can do because there are much wealthier lobbyists who can entice their angels to the dark side quite easily. A smarter approach is to attack the problem at the state level as wolf-pac is doing. Otherwise the problem will persist. My question is: Please convince me that Mayday is a better approach than Wolf-Pac. TYT started Wolf-Pac years ago and is in much further progress than Mayday including the fact that they brought up the flaws of taking a similar approach to what Mayday ended up doing years ago. So again, please talk me down and explain how your approach will work and how because it seems destined to fail to me.

Comment State Department Report was writen by Oil Execs (Score 2) 206

I like how articles forget to mention that the State Dpt. reports were made up of people who had ties to, or paid by those in the gas and oil industry. That is why environmentalists are still up in arms. Feel free to look up who put the report together and see who they work for. It's all there.

Comment Why doesn't TAILS use TRUCRYPT (or similar)? (Score 1) 171

I get the impression TAILS doesn't include a full system encryption on boot which means if the USB is discovered they could check whats on it. I assume Snowden wrote the retrieved data to the same usb stick. Maybe Trucrypt isn't available for linux distros but i am sure there are plenty of alternatives that do a similar full system os encryption.

Comment Re:so close! (Score 1) 162

Makes u wonder why other long-lived sites like Vimeo, DailyMotion, and maybe a hundred other me-too video sites havne't taken off since they have "less ads and no stupid social-tie-in comment system"? Just a curious question.
