You are, however, dumb enough to not realize that "incriminating and illegal" are in the eyes of the beholder.

BonThomme Re:Leader quotation bingo (264 comments)

Well, it is classified as a munition by the US. If we can't even call bullshit on that, it's pretty much over.

Microsoft On US Immigration: It's Our Way Or the Canadian Highway

BonThomme Re:Fine! (365 comments)

oh bullshit.

-bullshit, if your school doesn't have differentiated curriculum, it sucks, not common core
-bullshit, exploring how math concepts evolved is not that same as "going back to"; "showing your work" has been a part of education forever
-bullshit, the only people introducing politics are ones like you (who tend to introduce politics or religion into anything they don't like or understand)
-epic bullshit, doesn't merit a response
-bullshit, the Texas school board does this

I lived through New Math decades ago enduring binary, octal, and hexadecimal in 3rd grade, so I have every right to be skeptical of CC. I find it a vast improvement over what was there, but I recognize the consternation of parents who suddenly realize their snowflakes aren't quite so precious.

Tech Looks To Obama To Save Them From 'Just Sort of OK' US Workers

BonThomme bag of something (441 comments)

"The vast, vast majority of tech engineers that I talked to who are from the United States are very supportive of bringing in people from other countries because they want to work with the very best."

Ah, so any American engineer who disagrees with you obviously doesn't want to work with the very best, and since most of them are going to disagree with you, they prove your point that they're all mediocre.

Cisco To Slash Up To 6,000 Jobs -- 8% of Its Workforce -- In "Reorganization"

BonThomme Re:Slashdotters, do not disappoint me! (207 comments)

This has nothing to so with H1-Bs. It about having the courage to lay off your existing employees so you can hire new ones for your jobs that require 'special skills'. You know, special skills...

The CIA Does Las Vegas

BonThomme Re:Consistency is important (124 comments)

need a citation for Holder being found guilty of tax evasion.

as for Geitner, that was amply reported, but few acknowledge that is was payroll taxes (Social Security/Medicare) that weren't paid, as distinct from harboring millions in numbered Swiss accounts.

BonThomme Re:Or maybe ... (124 comments)

you forget that it was all MUTUAL. that has a wonderful self-limiting effect.

"no one seems to mind" is just your way of saying you don't care and want to have company.

BonThomme Re:And no one will go to jail (266 comments)

is "go(ing) after Obama" a precondition for being in the Tea Party?

This is first and foremost about Brennan and the CIA, and your response is "go after Obama!"
