Comment Re:The Saudi government is barbaric (Score 1) 189

You genuinely believe that donations to the Clinton Foundation is what keeps them in power and unpunished? rofl

Why would I believe something that you made up in your own head to fight as a strawman? Oh, I get it. Because you're hoping that by distracting with that juvenile rhetorical technique, that people will forget that the Clintons DO in fact rake in millions of dollars for their own family and cronies (only a sliver of their foundation's revenue goes to anything other than internal paychecks and perks/expenses) in exchange for providing political access to those who pile on the cash. Of course you know this, and are trying to wish it away. Especially the part where she was encouraging that while she was in office, giving lots of access to those who paid her husband. But do carry on, and pretend it didn't happen. Feel better now?

Compost is a great soil amendment. The obvious solution is to setup a set of large compost piles in your front yard (one accepting, one cooking, and one being used up), let the neighbors dump leaves there. Then out-garden the lot of them until they start to keep their leaves.

They don't want to bag the leaves and throw them away. Can't blame them, PITA.

Comment Re:The nature of the Trump-fans is pretty obvious (Score 4, Interesting) 122

A Kia that I own with a Trump sticker in Baltimore got vandalized to the tune of $2500 in July. I appreciated the new paintjob, since I have a $100 comp deductible, but the person did it to be a criminal douchebag.

My yard sign has been ripped up 3 times in a Baltimore suburb. I have had dog shit dumped on my lawn 4 or 5 times. Eventually I installed cameras and caught the motherfuckers, who got fined and harassed by the cops, but it was fundamentally a waste of money to deal with the scumbag local Democrats.

Recurrent theme around here, and a number of the houses in the neighborhood have pulled up their signs to avoid the bullshit. Isn't changing how they are voting, though.

So yeah, about those Trump supporters...?

Fashion companies don't make things that are useful or good. They make arbitrary shit, then make it popular, and people rush to buy the inferior, but fashionable, product, and pay a lot more for the privilege.

It's not like you can even blame Apple for taking advantage of this, really. But it's not about "market research", it's about "setting the trend". Telling, not asking, people what they want.

People who aren't interested in thinking need the metaphysical window dressing.

Believe it or not, that's a paraphrased Hitler quote, but that doesn't make it wrong.

I don't fault you for your beliefs, but I don't agree with them. I think that once the bioelectricity stops flowing, we cease to be. Anything else would be supernatural. However much I would like to talk to my father again, I don't think it's going to happen. It's not an emotionally satisfying viewpoint, but it is the logical conclusion of my other beliefs.
