Comment Re: "Tacit approval"? My nose! (Score 1) 205

The number of classified emails that went through Hillary's server are BTW 22. Most of them were not classified at the time, the once that were didn't have the classification in the header, they were only marked in the body.

Really? Really? Whether or not markings were on the communications, THEY WERE STILL CLASSIFIED and THEY STILL WENT THROUGH HER SERVER.

At a minimum, she should be held accountable under the "attractive nuisance" laws. No, I take that back. At a minimum, she should be held accountable for having classified email on an unclassified server. Even if she didn't send a single fucking email and only received them, she knew what she was doing was illegal and wrong.

Go ahead and keep explaining why classified emails are on an unclassified server and that somehow, nobody is fucking responsible for that happening.

Dumbass. Talk about being lead about by the nose. Really? It is okay because the Republicans did it before? How about the Republicans, Democrats, and fools like you all burn in fucking hell for being less than honest with yourselves about reality and what the fuck is actually going on. They are all criminals and useful idiots like you help them. Fuck off.

In the totalitarian police state of America, it's injustices all the way down.

I can't wait for someone to toss out the "you should have voted. it is all your fault for either not voting or voting for the wrong person" or even worse, "it is you and your fellow citizens that allowed this to happen. voting could have changed it. I know you voted but the rest have dragged you down."

Nothing but death will solve this. Lots and lots of deaths. The experiment is over. The evil people have won. Burn the whole fucking thing down.

It's been said countless times here. Requiring both a fingerprint and a passcode would have protected phone owners from this fishing expedition.

How about just fucking saying "No! I will not submit to your abusive warrant. Fuck you and your legal shenanigans. Throw me in jail to rot mother fucker. You can't throw everyone in jail without impacting your own quality of life mother fuckers."

In reality only 10s of thousands need to rot in jail before everyone else rolls over and shows their yellow belly.

The police aren't (supposed to be) able to get a warrant to just search anyone or anything in a given place, they have to be specific. This doesn't sound like it was, and so would probably be a 4th amendment violation.

It is only going to get worse. Nothing will be done about this. The media will not touch it. Each overreach that happens is merely followed by another.

Are you old enough to remember congress saying no to gathering up all of the separate databases and connecting them for government abuse, erm, I mean use? Yeah. So, that didn't work out so well. Slam a few planes into a few buildings and you get what you want.

This world, and the United States in particular, is devolving into an Orwellian nightmare with Mengelian qualities. Yes, I just Hitlerized this.

Stand up for your rights or live without them. Simple as that.

It is NOT that simple. Your rights are gone. Deal with it. Stand up for them and get mowed down. Don't stand up for them and they are gone. Either way, the end result is the same.

Give me liberty or give me death is no longer a battle cry. It is a death knell. You will be given death. Unless the people at the top start dying, this shit is going to continue.

A quick question to those on top: If god were real, would you be afraid to step into a church?

Exposing the truth is not a "dirty trick".

Except the truth does not matter. Nobody who has any sort of power will do anything based on any of this information. Hillary WILL become president whether you or I like it or not. The fix is in. Trump's only purpose is to distract us, they are both part of the same fucking team: Corrupt mother fuckers who would sell your children as sex slaves and then declare war on the people they sold them to because war is profitable.

The world should burn. As a race, we are so fucked up. Utterly disconnected from reality and chasing chimeric visions constructed through wishful thinking. I can't wait for another law that declares that Pi is 3 because reality is sooo fucking inconvenient.

People suck.

Comment Re:Population control (Score 1) 343

*sigh* If only that were true. No. The reason birth rates slow down in "advanced" societies is because of cultural programming.

The females are driven to only accept males that fit within certain cultural standards. This is less than 10% of all men.

The males are put in an economic hardship in relation to females. Men have to pay for women to exist if they ever get married or have children. Men also have the higher burden of child support. For example, I have to pay twice the amount of child support that my ex-wife does; despite the fact that the children live with me.

In short, the reason why there are fewer births in more advanced nations is because women can't find a partner and men can't afford it. Cultural programming.

When I tell stories I want to be detailed; but I have learned that people don't want the full story and prefer summaries. Summaries so short that I more or less have to reinvent the scenario in order to get my point or question out and paid attention to.

Heh. I have never heard anyone communicate this problem before but I run across it all the time too. Fascinating. :)

If you don't think that this is real, then sit down for a couple of hours this evening and watch two hours of children's TV. Count the number of male vs female lead roles. Count the number of times anyone builds anything and whether it's done by a male or female character.

How cute. You are able to see all of the injustices against females but are conveniently blind to the same injustices against males in the exact same fucking programs. Ah well, I guess there has to be some narrative and the poor picked on women is the narrative you choose.

Ever pay attention to the relationship between the father and the mother? The mother is invariably beautiful while the father is invariably a slightly dorky and weak male who can't solve problems like "mom" can.

Turns out she apparently used to be decent at maths but dropped it after being told repeatedly in school words t othe effects of "maths isn't for girls".

This is so weird. I am 49 years old and I have never seen a female discouraged from math at school or otherwise. Supposedly, the 70s, when I was going to elementary school, it was the height of females being discouraged from doing non-female things.

It is odd how during that time frame, the female teachers were busy helping the female students while essentially ignoring the male students and giving absolutely no encouragement at all to me or my fellow male students. There were 5 people in my classes from kindergarten to 4th grade who excelled. 4 were females and then there was me. The girls all got constant loving attention while, despite my scores always being higher, was ignored.

It was time for college in the mid 80s. They were grants and loans available for women and minorities, but for me, there was shit available. Needless to say, since I could not even afford the paperwork fees, much less college itself, I did not go to college.

Regardless, computers and communications between computers was/is a passion for me. I am now a highly paid Senior Security Engineer. No college, brief military service, and lots of suffering, but I am where many people would like to be.

Fuck women. They can all burn in mother fucking hell. Those fucking bitches get EVERYTHING in life handed to them on a fucking silver platter and it STILL is not enough. 50 fucking years of society sucking the dicks of girls and we STILL get this shit. Fuck off.

Women are useless, stupid pieces of shit. If you are female and can prove yourself otherwise, fine. I will respect you. All of this social justice shit has backfired though. I hate all women by default. You all fucking suck. Prove you are worthy. I for one am discriminating against your fat lazy asses. Every single time I see someone like "virtue signal" I throw up.

Maths isn't for girls? The fucking WORLD isn't for girls. They are clearly too fucking weak and stupid to stand up for themselves so evolution says they must be eliminated. Oh wait...

China Electronics Firm To Recall Some US Products After Hacking Attack ( 67

An anonymous reader writes:Chinese firm Hangzhou Xiongmai said it will recall some of its products sold in the United States after it was identified by security researchers as having made parts for devices that were targeted in a major hacking attack on Friday. Hackers unleashed a complex attack on the Internet through common devices like webcams and digital recorders, and cut access to some of the world's best known websites in a stunning breach of global internet stability. The electronics components firm, which makes parts for surveillance cameras, said in a statement on its official microblog that it would recall some of its earlier products sold in the United States, strengthen password functions and send users a patch for products made before April last year. It said the biggest issue was users not changing default passwords, adding that, overall, its products were well protected from cyber security breaches. It said reports that its products made up the bulk of those targeted in the attack were false. "Security issues are a problem facing all mankind. Since industry giants have experienced them, Xiongmai is not afraid to experience them once, too," the company statement said.

Nurses In Australia Face Punishment For Promoting Anti-Vaccination Messages Via Social Media ( 644 writes: Medical Express reports that nurses and midwives promoting anti-vaccination messages in Australia could face punishment including being slapped with a caution and having their ability to practice medicine restricted. Serious cases could be referred to an industry tribunal, where practitioners could face harsher penalties such as having their registration suspended or cancelled. The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia released the vaccination standards in response to what it described as a small number of nurses and midwives promoting anti-vaccination via social media. The statement also urges members of the public to report nurses or midwives promoting anti-vaccination. Promoting false, misleading or deceptive information is an offense under national law and is prosecutable by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. "The board will consider whether the nurse or midwife has breached their professional obligations and will treat these matters seriously," the statement said. However Dr. Hannah Dahlen, a professor of midwifery at the University of Western Sydney and the spokeswoman for the Australian College of Midwives, worries the crackdown may push people with anti-vaccination views further underground. "The worry is the confirmation bias that can occur, because people might say: 'There you go, this is proof that you can't even have an alternative opinion.' It might in fact just give people more fuel for their belief systems."
