uh, I am guessing that you have never owned a luxury ANYTHING.

I own an A8. It's worth fuck all. It's only a D2, but even the D3s are starting to get cheap now.

That is why the wealthy buy them.

No. The wealthy buy them because they are better while they last. They don't give a fuck about resale value. They dump them while they're still young and fresh.

Moderate is NOT a word to use to describe my political views. Nor is conservative. Nor is liberal...

I'm most closely a "Communist Libertarian"....and am an odd hodgepodge. I passionately supported Bernie Sanders, but vehemently oppose Hillary Clinton. I'm pro-gun, and would rather see a national healthcare program than this horrendous mess. I think Trump's tax plan is much better than HRC. I support Black Lives Matter. I'm just a mess politically.

Guess... I'm just a bloody American!

Doesn't this embarrass you, America? Don't you feel ashamed that this is what you've become?

Absolutely, but only in that we've become like everyone else. History seems to just be a series of different groups coming to power, acting like dicks, using up their resources and then being surpassed by someone else who hasn't used theirs up yet. The USA is the country which was in the right place at the right time to dominate everything for the last couple hundred years. Before that, it's been other countries.

Comment Re:Input on a Windows tablet? (Score 1) 113

Sony also announced today a USB dongle for Mac and Windows that permits wireless DS4 connections. Assuming the tablet has a USB port you could presumably use that (although as of yet there is no word if it requires any special drivers or not).

This is actually the most interesting thing they've had to say, then. Sony has always made excellent controllers.

The Republicans of the 80s and even 90s are nothing like the party of today. Somewhere along the lines it was hijacked by religious nutjobs.

"Somewhere along the line"? That was Bush. George Pervert Fucker Bush. They were mobilized to elect Bush. You can't mobilize them to stamp out homelessness or feed all the starving children in the country, but you can get them all marching in step to elect a shitheel. This was not the first time the Religious Reich was motivated to vote, but it was the point at which they really became dangerous politically.

George Takei is a gay rights activist. So would a conservative who likes ice cream (ben and jerrys) and George Takei be labeled liberal?

You can be conservative in some ways and not in others, although I'd argue that if you're in favor of people being able to be homosexual if they want, you're not really that conservative.

Or is someone who is far-left who attacks Hillary going to be labeled conservative for being anti-Democrat?

It happens to me all the time, and humans are doing it. If Fb does it, they'll be on their way to passing the Turing test.

I got rejected from a minimum wage job in college because the chain store had a standard questionaire. If you answered that you don't use drugs, but think they should be legal, you were considered a lying drug user.

The test was to determine whether you were smart enough to tell people what they want to hear, and you failed it.

Nah. Please skip buying EVs. Within 5 years, you will find it is slim pickings for new cars, BUT you will be able to buy used 2 y.o S class MB for 10-20,000.

Luxury cars are built for the first buyer. That 2 year old S-Class is going to cost you another 10-20k in repairs if you want everything on it to work. It's not just MB either. A guy on the QW D2 A8 forum says his wife's Q7 (IIRC) just literally blew up two of its four airbags because it got confused. He dad to have his wife bleed pressure from the other two at a fitting (!) just to get home.

I know, isn't that a travesty? It's already 5am on the East Coast and yet so far there's been no stories making fun of Trump and sweeping Clinton's lies under the rug. I hope the NYT, The View or Bill Maher will step in soon to fix that. Can't let the right-winger get away with it.

The right wing doesn't want trump any more than anyone else. Trump is in the race specifically to spoil the election in favor of his long time friends and business associates, the Clintons. HTH, HAND, noob.

See above plus she called nuclear power plants are, "Nuclear power plants = weapons of mass destruction waiting to be detonated.
Time to shut them down".

She is essentially correct. Modern nuclear power plants are accidents waiting to happen. We keep hearing about better designs, but they keep failing to materialize. In addition, uranium mining is shit. Like all kinds of mining it can theoretically be done cleanly, and like all kinds of mining it never actually is.

And she calls trains hauling oil, "bomb trains" and also calls them "weapons of mass destruction"...
AKA crack pot extremist.

She's actually way more correct about that. If you had any idea of the actual environmental impact of shipping oil on trains you would wet your kecks.
