Perhaps you could explain why the high-ranking Democrat operatives have been fired/"resigned" rather than saying they've been misquoted. Or why Hillary answered the Moderator asking "and we learned this from the Wikileaks..." with "Well if you read the rest of the sentence..." rather than "Those e-mails are all fabricated!" But certainly, if you have no factual counter-arguments, then you're forced to go into ad-hominem attacks against O'Keefe.

The recording industry has had a broad royalty scheme for a long time where any radio station can pay fees into the system and then play pretty much any recording ever made. The TV and Movie industries need to adopt a similar scheme to enable the next giant leap in home entertainment. You pay a fee to an aggregator and then freely choose from any entertainment product ever recorded.

It's weird. I remember when a sitting president was sued for sexual assault, and at the time Democrats didn't seem to find the allegations credible. Nor the rape allegations. Well, I'm sure they had their reasons beyond just, you know, rank hypocrisy.

If Democrats didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all. :-P

Has it now gotten to the point where I am more likely to be lynched for being like Hugh Hefner than Bruce Jenner?

The way they're going, you're more likely to be lynched for continuing to refer to Bruce Jenner by the name his parents gave him at birth.

Of course, the bastards will then come after me for this post because IDGAF about Bruce's delusions...or theirs.

But with all that Trump has said or promoted, I've not seen yet where he came out to promote the agenda that is against equality in matters of gender and race.

You haven't seen him say it because he hasn't said it. The extreme-left noise machine has thrown out all of these...um...trumped-up charges, and their stenographers in the "mainstream" media have reliably parroted it far and wide.

Comment Re:Facts? We don't need no stinkin' facts (Score 2) 325

Sure, they source things and explain why they rated things the way they did (like rating Obama's statement that "people buy guns over the Internet without a background check" during a speech calling for better background check laws as TRUE by qualifying the statement with "He never said people do that legally).

But no one ever looks at that. They look at the rating which often has twisted justifications that are, yes, clearly biased. But, like I said, no one looks at the justification. In fact, they will propagate nonsense like a aggregate of a bunch of rating as if they were unassailable facts to judge the "truthfulness" of one candidate or organization compared to another. When all that aggregate really tells you is how biased those "fact check" sites actually are.

Woot recently had the Latitude 7370 available, starting under $600 for a refurb. Near as I can tell, it's the same basic design as the XPS 13, but with Win10 Pro instead of Home and some more business-oriented features. (On closer examination, it also looks like it has a second Thunderbolt port instead of a second USB port.) I've not gotten around to installing Linux on it yet, but once secure boot was switched off, it ran SystemRescueCD and the latest Gentoo LiveDVD from a USB stick without any issues. Nice little machine. It's small enough that you can use it on a plane even if you're not in first class or an exit row...most other notebooks are so large that either the screen will be at an uncomfortable viewing angle or the front edge will be poking you in the chest. Already took a look at the manual. Except for RAM (soldered on), everything's upgradable once you unscrew the bottom cover. Mine has a 128GB M.2 SSD; if anything's a candidate for an upgrade, that is, especially if I'm going to have it dual-boot.
