I don't know why I'm sometimes slow to recognize a troll.

Anyway, good one. Have a nice life.

Dad Makes His Kid Play Through All Video Game History In Chronological Order

DexterIsADog Re:In summary... (222 comments)

If I taught my kid that there is absolutely no god, end of story, then I guess you could claim I was indoctrinating him/her. But in fact, 1) I did not identify as an atheist and 2) I didn't mention whether I even have children, or if I did, how I would raise them (which is none of your business anyway).

You moron.

DexterIsADog Re:In summary... (222 comments)

You have no idea what you're talking about. You're trying to argue against an argument for atheism WHICH I DID NOT MAKE. My reference to people begging a magic Sky Daddy is certainly a derisive description of religion, but so what? My point was not that atheists are correct, or even that I was one - you made an assumption.

If you want to be all mad at any random public derision of religion, that's not my problem. I wasn't advancing a religious argument, and I will not argue religion with you - from your specious logic, it's obvious that would be a waste of my time.

And you're *still* wrong about anything in what I wrote being circular reasoning - you just made that up. You're a very dim bulb.

Sorry dude, but your post didn't make any fucking sense. Whatsoever.

I said it was no worse than religious indoctrination by parents, which is completely legal. I also said I thought he was a bit of a dick. Lots of legal things are still dickish.

What exactly is it you don't understand about that? Don't answer now, think about it as you snap the chin strap on your helmet, and ponder it on the short bus ride to school.

US Navy Authorizes Use of Laser In Combat

DexterIsADog Re:USS Ponce? (225 comments)

Ponce is the only ship of the United States Navy that is named for Ponce in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico

And a good thing too, nobody would know what the fuck is going on if there were 15 ships and a submarine all named Ponce.

DexterIsADog Re:In summary... (222 comments)

I'm (pretty?) sure you're joking. If parents can make their children attend lessons on Sunday about begging a magic Sky Daddy for things, then requiring a child to play certain videogames is well within the realm of the legal. Although, I still think he's a bit of an asshole, but then I think that about people with sincerely held religious beliefs as well.

Do you worry about the singularity?

DexterIsADog Re:Worried about society (181 comments)

The Tea Party is not, IMO, about not sharing. It's about not having your money taken by the government and used to sustain a government apparatus that squanders it inefficiently.

You can share all you want and you are encouraged to spend that money in exchange for goods and services that will make you happy. The point is choice.

About choosing how to spend it, instead of having the government choose for you...

No, that's incorrect. The Tea Party is mostly composed of people who resent that the gummint spends any money *at all* on "those people". You know, "those" people.

Oh, all right, I'll say it - the damn blacks and highspannics!

Keep in mind that these are also the people who actually demand, "keep your government hands off my Medicare".

DOOM 3DO Source Released On Github

DexterIsADog Re:Anti-worker would mean against, not for... (323 comments)

Then keep working. That's what retirement is- deciding not to work anymore and live off savings, because you prefer that lifestyle with less work and less money. Since you won't be bringing in a salary anymore, that means a lesser lifestyle money-wise. When that tradeoff is worth it is up to you.

That's not really true. Many people meet the retirement financial goals so they *don't* have to give up any of the lifestyle they prefer.

I still have a pretty good chance to make it. Some people are not content to settle for less.

B) Not even close to a millionaire, temporary or otherwise. I work for a living thank you very much.

Mmm, not to nitpick, but plenty of us who are millionaires also still work for a living. And some of us despair a little as we slide closer to retirement, knowing we will likely have to settle for a lesser lifestyle when we stop working.

Not other than, with. And with, using money from people like the Koch brothers, who are buying themselves legislation.

Were you being deliberately obtuse? Or are you just pleased that R's are successful at using state legislatures to control national policy with gerrymandering?

DexterIsADog Re:How is that startling? (413 comments)

I think you missed the point. The R's have been working specifically to capture state legislatures, from which they can influence the makeup of Congress by gerrymandering. They're quite successful at it.

Health Advisor: Ebola Still Spreading, Worst Outbreak We've Ever Seen

DexterIsADog Re:The one consistant thing I've seen. (244 comments)

Ah, thank you, you do understand the point. You just don't care. I'm puzzled why you would still advocate for such destructive policies, but everyone has their own pathologies.

Good luck with that. Hope you don't have children.

Health Advisor: Ebola Still Spreading, Worst Outbreak We've Ever Seen

DexterIsADog Re:The one consistant thing I've seen. (244 comments)

I'm sure you're right. Government can print infinite money with no negative consequences down the line. The only reason everyone isn't a millionaire already is the greed of evil bankers. Why didn't anyone realize this before in all of history?

I mean, it's clear as day: you just spend more money that you make, and life is therefore better. I can see no flaw in this plan.

Your first response was reasonable, but now your sarcasm just demonstrates willful ignorance. You didn't think about what I wrote, did you? You're on the side of the shameless thieves who are willing to degrade U.S. infrastructure, ruin countless lives, and stunt the country's recovery, for what... to put a relatively small percentage of additional wealth into the pockets of the rich.

What they're doing is like the mugger who bashes in the head of someone who earns $100K per year for the $50 in his wallet. But hey, you're entitled to pick your friends.

DexterIsADog Re:The one consistant thing I've seen. (244 comments)

The long-awaited runaway inflation is like cold fusion - it's coming, and we were wrong before (actually, they never admit this), but it's definitely coming.

The situation is not so much that honorable, well-meaning people are wrong in their predictions, but that they are a pack of craven fear mongers who are attempting to make the current inequities much worse, to the long-term detriment of the U.S., in order to provide their clients with more short term advantage.

Is the string of experts saying how wrong they were after the fact.

Well, they're one up on the austerity fetishists who have been predicting runaway inflation for the last 8 years unless we slash government spending.

I say everyone just blockade west Africa. Nobody goes in or comes out and let the problem resolve itself.

Funny, the rest of the world is starting to say that about the U.S.
