Comment Re:Seriously...music off YouTube...? (Score 1) 209

Well, when I was 16-24yrs, I was into and enjoyed high fidelity stereo....my friends all did as well.

Er, not unless your parents and friends' parents were very well off, or all of them were in the military and bought their equipment duty-free in Asia you didn't. Before digital, in America a high fidelity stereo (let alone quadraphonic system) would cost your a couple grand.

I used to have an audiophile-quality system I bought stationed in Thailand, but it was stolen in a burglary. I have a pair of JBLs now, three way with twelve inch woofers. I miss my old stereo.

But I rip from YouTube occasionally, and rip from KSHE every Sunday night when they play six full albums. With Windows all it takes is Audacity and a setting in mmsys.cpl to capture a signal sent to your sound card, you don't need those goofs' web site.

I make CDs from KSHE's albums for the car, and they sound as good as factory CDs -- in the car. Their difference in quality in the house with the JBLs is marginal. It's a LOT better sound than a cassette recorded at home.

If you're in St. Louis (I'm not) you can plug your digital FM radio's "out" jacks into your computer's input jacks and you actually will have CD quality music.

The labels are fighting a losing cause.

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.

If "not being a sociopath" is left, than I guess you're right, I'm a leftist. It comes from too much Sunday school, I suppose.

Comment Re:Anti-Hillary is not Pro-Trump (Score 1) 850

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.

Comment Lefties? (Score 1) 11

If not being heartless is being a leftist, then I'm leftist. Letting children die so you can become even more filthy rich is just pure evil.

This is a drug that costs less than ten bucks to manufacture that stops children from dying a horrible death from a severe allergy. Charging six hundred bucks for it is beyond criminal and wel into Evil with a capital E. Satanically evil.

Comment Taxes are punishment? (Score 1) 4

If taxes are punishment then the rich need their taxes tripled after all the unpunished evil they've done so far this century. The poor are being punished enough - by the rich. If having to pay for roads and bridges is punishment, then having to pay for food and water is, too.

As a Christian, I have no problem with taxes (Mark 12:17). Of course, if you worship mammon rather than God, taxes would indeed be punishment.

Comment Re: Echo chamber (Score 1) 850

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?
