Richard Stallman Falls Ill At Conference

Beelzebud Sad that /. is nothing but trolls. (460 comments)

Looking through the comments, I'm reminded again why I visit this site less and less. I think this might just be my final post here. This site is a shadow of what it was when I joined, and I came along fairly late...

Apple To Help Foxconn Improve Factories

Beelzebud These should be American jobs. (166 comments)

But no one has any sense of giving back to the community that made their success possible, so forget it.

Twitter Rejects Prosecutors' Subpoena For a User's Data Without Warrant

Beelzebud Re:Sounds nice (168 comments)

I'm outside all the time, and have not seen this police state you're blabbing about. Do you even know WTF a police state is?

Beelzebud Re:Sounds nice (168 comments)

Booth was a patriot to the confederacy. That's why Americans refer to him as a terrorist. I'm not a Confederate. The "rationale" is bullshit.

How Apple Sidesteps Billions In Global Taxes

Beelzebud Re:Stand on the back of civilization (599 comments)

I'm not sure how your family operates, but mine pays taxes. If we can pay taxes, so can multi-billion dollar companies.

How Long Before the Kickstarter Bubble Bursts?

Beelzebud Re:Insanity (192 comments)

It's never presented as an investment.... You are helping to support something that interests you. Nothing more, nothing less.

How Long Before the Kickstarter Bubble Bursts?

Beelzebud Step 1: (192 comments)

Learn what an economic bubble is. When you give money to a Kickstarter project you want to support, it is a donation, not an investment. There can be no bubble, as there is no market to create an inflated value on anything.

Some USAF Pilots Refuse To Fly F-22 Raptor

Beelzebud Re:Not only that... (569 comments)

Are you done arguing with your person version of me? This jet isn't needed, and was a waste of billions. Period. I can state that without going off on the ignorant tangent you did.

Japan's Last Nuclear Reactor Shuts Down

Beelzebud Re:Great step. Now about the plutonium. (452 comments)

On one hand you have people that over-state the danger, and then on the other you have people like yourself that dismiss the danger outright. So much for any rational discussion.

Beelzebud Stand on the back of civilization (599 comments)

and have the arrogance to think you don't owe anything to anyone.

Sums up a lot of what's wrong with things, ATM.

Whistleblower: NSA Has All of Your Email

Beelzebud Re:anyone surprised? (478 comments)

They reported it. Just like they report what is going on now. The problem stems from the "fair and balanced" approach to news, where they report pretend these kinds of issues have "two sides". For all their reporting about Guantanamo and waterboarding, what came of it? Absolutely nothing. Gitmo is still opened, and no one will ever be prosecuted for war crimes. They did a fine job of presenting "both sides" until a segment of the American population condoned torture and other illegal activities.

Without partisan hypocrisy, it wouldn't be so easy for them to get away with it. The same people that want to impeach Obama for the patriot act and NDAA, were totally silent when Bush was in charge. Conversely many who wanted Bush impeached, now seem to just look the other way and yawn now that "their team" is in charge.

One thing I've learned from observing politics closely for 20 years is that partisans are the most hypocritical bunch on the planet, regardless of ideology. So you can claim Romney will be treated easier by the press, but the fact is that the ruling class get's it easy no matter what, as long as they play ball, and our current president (despite being called a communist) has played ball so well that wall street recovered while main street is still in a recession. I don't see Rick Santelli ranting about needing a tea party now thew Dow is over 10k again.

The Crisis of Government-Funded Science

Beelzebud Re:Why just OUR government? (194 comments)

Another fine example of why I hold right-wing libertarians in utter contempt.

Beelzebud Re:anyone surprised? (478 comments)

Wake up and smell the coffee. The press didn't give a shit when Bush was doing it, they don't give a shit now that Obama is doing it, and they won't give a shit if Romney does it. They have their orders from their parent companies who all also own defense contractors.

No one is advocating that they can inject "ANY" chemical they "desire", you half-wit. If you distrust this government so much, just leave. No one is forcing you to stay.

Santorum Suspends Presidential Campaign

Beelzebud Re:News for Nerds? (577 comments)

No, I'm certain the word I was looking for is evangelical. In the past presidential candidates did not wear their religion so proudly on their sleeve. To say that evangelicals don't advocate anything that is not mainstream is laughable, regardless of how many followers they have.
