Forest Service Wants To Require Permits For Photography

Feyshtey Re:Petitions.org... (299 comments)

Or just make a law against interfering with access. Apply that both to tripods, and to bureaucratic knobs that want to regulate pictures on public land.

Bioethicist At National Institutes of Health: "Why I Hope To Die At 75"

Feyshtey Re:A public service announcement from George Orwel (478 comments)

Thank you grammar police.

From Wiktionary (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/dyed-in-the-wool):

The expression "dyed in the wool" refers to a state of steadfastness, especially with respect to one's political, religious or social beliefs. The expression comes from the fact that fabric can be dyed in a number of ways. The woven fabric may be dyed after it is complete, or the threads may be dyed before they are woven. When a color is "dyed in the wool," the wool itself is dyed before being spun into threads, so the colour is least likely to fade or change. (Dyes: Webster’s Quotations, Facts and Phrases. Icon Group International. 2008, p. 344.)"

Ezekiel (like his brother, the mayor of Chicago) is from a family with a history of liberal political activism. In a very direct way he was raised with liberal, and arguably progressive leanings. His formative years (the dying of his wool) developed the philosophies he now holds as a mature adult. He is the product of the dyed wool being utilized to create a product, as opposed to raw wool being used to create a thing that is later dyed.

The application of that phrase is precisely correct.

Bioethicist At National Institutes of Health: "Why I Hope To Die At 75"

Feyshtey Re:I agree, 100% (478 comments)

This is the evil that Emanuel is describing from Bernard Shaw, a Fabian Socialist who defended the actions of the Nazi's.

Bioethicist At National Institutes of Health: "Why I Hope To Die At 75"

Feyshtey Re:I agree, 100% (478 comments)

Who determines when that time comes? Maybe it's 65. Maybe it's 55. Hell, for some it's in their 30's when they start getting fat and lazy.

Basically what this dickhead is saying is that if you're not valuable to someone for some tangible product, you should just die. He's probably also of the opinion that if you get Muscular Dystrophy in your 30's you should just check out. If you're born with Downs Syndrome, and will always have to be cared for you should just be aborted at birth (murdered). It's not like a severe mental handicap provides the ability to make a "rational" decision to take yourself out of everyone worries about you.

This philosophy relies on the premise that if you aren't providing money, or food, or talent in some field of productivity, that you are also unable to provide (and receive) love, joy and positive experiences. The philosophy is callous and inhuman, ironically coming from a man who will tell you all about how we should behave exactly in a specific way if it can "save just one life".

Emanuel is a dyed in the wool liberal progressive the likes of which Bernard Shaw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3lBdyFvPps) would be quite proud of.

Jesse Jackson: Tech Diversity Is Next Civil Rights Step

Feyshtey Re:Confusing position (514 comments)

Then by your definitions, the current federal hiring practices are discriminatory. If you're applying for a position in federal govt you get additional preference for that position if you are female and/or a member of a minority. All else being equal, a woman, or a member of a minority, or a minority woman will be hired for a position that an exactly equally qualified white male also applied to. (Veteran status is another factor, which I actually happen to agree with. But that's a different discussion.)

UK Ballistics Scientists: 3D-Printed Guns Are 'of No Use To Anyone'

Feyshtey Re:Good thing technology never moves forward (490 comments)

Obviously! And it's a good thing that 3D printed firearms are the only way to kill someone. It's not like a computer and an internet connection canprovide you a few 100 other cheap and easy ways to do so.

I promise you that an idiot with a computer and an internet connection is capable of far more destruction, death and mayhem than any idiot with a 3D printer and ammo. You cant print anthrax, TNT or C4. But you can sure as hell look up how to produce them and obtain the materials to do so.

Shrinking Waves May Save Antarctic Sea Ice

Feyshtey Re:News at 11 (298 comments)

Just one problem. "We don't know why this apparent contradiction exists, but we're researching it" is pretty much the exact opposite of "ignoring facts".

Which is fine, as long as this apparent open-minded and scientific approach is not regularly coupled with "The science is settled".

Researching methods to explain away the data that contradicts your forgone conclusion is not good science. Vilifying the science community that continues to probe the validity of that conclusion is even less so.

Shrinking Waves May Save Antarctic Sea Ice

Feyshtey Re:News at 11 (298 comments)

In other words, measurements from cities should show a marked and wholly false warming trend over the last decade or so. So we should be using the temperature measurements from only remote stations from the last 100 years to prove warming. How many remote temperature stations existed even 20 or 30 years ago?

DreamWorks Animation CEO: Movie Downloads Will Move To Pay-By-Screen-Size

Feyshtey Re:value scales with screen size (347 comments)

As I said, that's what we have now. The only solace (and a small one at that) is that they are not bureaucrats.

Feyshtey Re:value scales with screen size (347 comments)

Absolutely nothing wrong with that. If you want a higher quality product, you CHOOSE to purchase it. But that's not what this billing model is. It means to choose for you which quality of product you MUST buy according to the device they believe you will enjoy the product on.

DreamWorks Animation CEO: Movie Downloads Will Move To Pay-By-Screen-Size

Feyshtey Re:value scales with screen size (347 comments)

I agree. And the fact that they continue to make a profit speaks more to the fact that the consumers are idiots than anything. But imagine a core group of political bureaucrats deciding how much of your tax dollars would be allocated to movies or television, and what kinds of things the government thinks you really need to be viewing. What message do you need to recieve?

And yes, I'm well aware that in many cases Washington is able to utilize Hollywood as a platform for their message. But at least there's a pretense that Hollywood isnt directly associated with this administration.

Feyshtey Re:value scales with screen size (347 comments)

I can see your argument so long as you agree to pay the reduced price to view it on your phone... every single time you want to watch it. If you BUY the product, you OWN the product, and you watch it on any damn thing you want to watch it on.
