Why does M$ do any of the dumb shit they do?

Because Balmer is fat and sweaty and touches himself at night. That's why.

You just don't get it. You don't.

    This is about gov't workers on gov't time using gov't machines. Understand? You can can get back to us when they start using secret police to arrest those using free email services or bombing crowds or oppressing women, being ruled by a "royal family" through a theocracy, or.......never mind. You lose.

Cambridge, Mass. Moves To Nix Security Cameras

LittleLebowskiUrbanA Re:suddenoutbreakofcommonsense (366 comments)

You have got to be shitting me. Guess you don't recall the days when a cop actually walked his beat and knew the neighborhood. Far more effective than these invasive cameras which in practice record the crime as it happens and don't actually prevent anything. Ask our Nanny State British cousins how much they like their cameras.

Update

LittleLebowskiUrbanA LittleLebowskiUrbanA writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Back on /. after a long absence. This is one of the few sites not blocked by my work's ornerous web filtering.

    In case anyone's curious, I'm an gun toting, pro choice, Barry Goldwater-conservative atheist. Anyone want to talk guns? Right now I'm eying a Steyr AUG replica made in the US. I just wish I could find an AUG that takes AR mags.

So much for right wing Christian gun owners

LittleLebowskiUrbanA LittleLebowskiUrbanA writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Here are some gun owners going at it over evolution and the age of the Earth. Looks like there's some pretty intelligent non-christian gun owners in America despite European belief :)

Read the thread.

Saudi Arabia

LittleLebowskiUrbanA LittleLebowskiUrbanA writes  |  more than 9 years ago

"The notion of a single career woman barely exists here. Women cannot even drive. They cannot get an education, travel or check into a hotel without a male guardian's permission.

Some parents, on the other hand, are modern-minded enough to let their daughters finish their schooling or go out to work. And although Islamic laws permit a man to have four wives at a time, most Muslim men today take one wife, because it has become the cultural norm and polygamy is costly.

    Why are we supporting these fanatics? Why do people brag about Islam and women's rights?

Foxnews

LittleLebowskiUrbanA LittleLebowskiUrbanA writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Why do people bitch so much about FoxNews? Yeah, I agree that the commentators are biased but the reporting is straightforward and generally posted much faster than CNN or the BBC.
    I note Troed is now saying Americans voted for George Bush because they're fat. Anytime you'd like to go for a run or swim, let me know Troed. I will eat humble pie if you beat me.
    Now I am certain... An American stole Troed's girlfriend. There's no other explanation for his drivel.

Samba authentication with Blackberry&Avaya IP Office

LittleLebowskiUrbanA LittleLebowskiUrbanA writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Here's the problem. I have quite a bit of latitude with my email server but I need to keep my Blackberry server and Avaya IP office running. As far as I know right now, these just authenticate with Active Directory for the Integrated Messaging Exchange Account so it can send voicemails to the user's mailboxes and the Blackberry just forwards mail onto the Blackberry user's Exchange accounts.

SO, why can't an open source mail server authenticate with these apps? Any ideas? I think that I will still have to run a Active Directory box for Blackberry.

Chappaquiddick

LittleLebowskiUrbanA LittleLebowskiUrbanA writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Looking at the police reports, news articles, web sites, it's pretty obvious that Ted Kennedy directly contributed to that girl's death.

A common saying among gun owners is that "my guns have killed less people than Ted Kennedy and his car." Good one :)

What's funny about that saying is that Ted Kennedy tried to ban all center fire ammunition in the United States. He seems to spend a lot of time worrying about firearms rather than regulating drunk drivers like himself.

Check it out for yourself.

Kerry at FactCheck.org

----Disclaimer-----
I don't like Bush or Kerry but there's some pretty vehemenent liberals on here that attack anyone who disagrees them using foul language and insults so might as well give them something to bitch about. Since this is negative about Kerry (though it's true), expect flames.

Kerry is not a leader.

Funny pro-terrorist site

LittleLebowskiUrbanA LittleLebowskiUrbanA writes  |  more than 10 years ago

You have to laugh at this site, especially their talk about destroying M1 Abrams tanks left and right. For those who don't know, the M1 Abrams is hard to kill, especially using the weapons the insurgents have.

If you believe this site, every American helicopter and tank in Iraq have been destroyed and the heroic "freedom fighters" got away cleanly every time.

Debate

Chris Matthews:
"I think the analogy would be a water pistol against a machine gun. Every once in a while, Edwards would take a squirt at the vice president, and then the vice president would just turn the Howitzer on the guy."

    So far it sounds pretty even but I think Dick Cheney is doing better. John Edwards can't complete one sentence without a reference to John Kerry. Sounds like he's hiding behind John Kerry's skirts.

40 reasons to support gun control

LittleLebowskiUrbanA LittleLebowskiUrbanA writes  |  more than 10 years ago

1. Banning guns works, which is why New York, DC,
      and Chicago cops need guns.

2. Washington DC's low murder rate of 69 per
      100,000 is due to strict gun control, and
      Indianapolis' high murder rate of 9 per 100,000
      is due to the lack of gun control.

3. Statistics showing high murder rates justify
      gun control, but statistics showing increasing
      murder rates after gun control are "just
      statistics."

4. The Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban,
      both of which went into effect in 1994, are
      responsible for the decrease in violent crime
      rates, which have been declining since 1991.

5. We must get rid of guns because a deranged
      lunatic may go on a shooting spree at any time
      and anyone who would own a gun out of fear of
      such a lunatic is paranoid.

6. The more helpless you are the safer you are
      from criminals.

7. An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas
      or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum
      will get angry and kill you.

8. A woman raped and strangled is morally superior
      to a woman with a smoking gun and a dead rapist
      at her feet.

9. When confronted by violent criminals, you
      should "put up no defense --give them what they
      want, or run" (Handgun Control Inc. Chairman
      Pete Shields, Guns Don't Die - People Do, 1981,
      p. 125).

10. The New England Journal of Medicine is filled
        with expert advice about guns; just like Guns
        and Ammo Magazine has some excellent treatises
        on heart surgery.

11. One should consult an automotive engineer for
        safer seatbelts, a civil engineer for a better
        bridge, a surgeon for spinal paralysis, a
        computer programmer for Y2K problems, and
        Sarah Brady [or Sheena Duncan! , Adele
        Kirsten, Peter Storey, etc.] for firearms
        expertise.

12. The 2nd Amendment, ratified in 1787, refers to
        the National Guard, which was created by an
        act of Congress in 1917.

13. The National Guard, funded by the federal
        government, occupying property leased to the
        federal government, using weapons owned by the
        federal government, punishing trespassers
        under federal law, is a state militia.

14. These phrases," right of the people peaceably
        to assemble," "right of the people to be
        secure in their homes," "enumeration's herein
        of certain rights shall not be construed to
        disparage others retained by the people," and
        "The powers not delegated herein are reserved
        to the states respectively, and to the
        people," all refer to individuals, but "the
        right of the people to keep and bear arms"
        refers to the state.

15. We don't need guns against an oppressive
        government, because the Constitution has
        internal safeguards, but we should ban and
        seize all guns, thereby violating the 2nd,
        4th, and 5th Amendments
        to that Constitution.

16. Rifles and handguns aren't necessary to
        national defense, which is why the army has
        literally millions of them.

17. Private citizens shouldn't have handguns,
        because they serve no military purpose, and
        private citizens shouldn't have "assault
        rifles," because they are military weapons.

18. The ready availability of guns today, with
        waiting periods, background checks,
        fingerprinting, government forms, etc., is
        responsible for recent school shootings,
        compared to the lack of school shootings in
        the 40's, 50's and 60's, which resulted from
        the availability of guns at hardware stores,
        surplus stores, gas stations, variety stores,
        mail order, etc., etc.

19. The NRA's attempt to run a "don't touch"
        campaign about kids handling guns is
        propaganda, and the anti-gun lobby's attempt
        to run a "don't touch" campaign is responsible
        social activity.

20. Guns are so complex that special training is
        necessary to use them properly, and so simple
        to use that they make murder easy.

21. A handgun, with up to 4 controls, is far too
        complex for the typical adult to learn to use,
        as opposed to an automobile that only has 20.

22. Women are just as intelligent and capable as
        men but a woman with a gun is "an accident
        waiting to happen" and gun makers'
        advertisements aimed at women are "preying on
        their fears."

23. Ordinary people in the presence of guns turn
        into slaughtering butchers but revert to
        normal when the weapon is removed.

24. Guns cause violence, which is why there are so
        many mass killings at rifle and pistol ranges
        and gun shows.

25. A majority of the population supports gun
        control, just like a majority of the
      population supported owning slaves.

26. A self-loading small arm can legitimately be
        considered to be a "weapon of mass
        destruction" or an "assault weapon."

27. Most people can't be trusted, so we should
        have laws against guns, which most people will
        abide by because they can be trusted.

28. The right of online pornographers to exist
        cannot be questioned because it is
        constitutionally protected by the Bill of
        Rights, but the use of handguns for self
        defense is not really protected by the Bill of
        Rights.

29. Free speech entitles one to own newspapers,
        transmitters, computers, and typewriters, but
        self-defense only justifies bare hands.

30. The ACLU is good because it uncompromisingly
        defends certain parts of the Constitution, and
        the NRA is bad, because it defends other parts
        of the Constitution.

31. Charlton Heston as president of the NRA is a
        shill who should be ignored, but Michael
        Douglas as a representative of Handgun
        Control, Inc. is an ambassador for peace who
        is entitled to an audience at the UN arms
        control summit.

32. Police operate with backup within groups,
        which is why they need larger capacity pistol
        magazines than do "civilians" who must face
        criminals alone and therefore need less
        ammunition.

33. We should ban "Saturday Night Specials" and
        other inexpensive guns because it's not fair
        that poor people have access to guns too.

34. Police officers, who qualify with their duty
        weapons once or twice a year, have some
        special Jedi-like mastery over handguns that
        private citizens can never hope to obtain.

35. Private citizens don't need a gun for
        self-protection because the police are there
        toprotect them even though the Supreme Court
        says the police are not responsible for their
        protection.

36. Citizens don't need to carry a gun for
        personal protection but police chiefs, who are
        desk-bound administrators who work in a
        building filled with cops, need a gun.

37. "Assault weapons" have no purpose other than
        to kill large numbers of people, which is why
        the police need them but "civilians" do not.

38. When Microsoft pressures its distributors to
        give Microsoft preferential promotion, that's
        bad; but when the Federal government pressures
        cities to buy guns only from Smith & Wesson,
        that's good.

39. Trigger locks do not interfere with the
        ability to use a gun for defensive purposes,
        which is why you see police officers with one
        on their duty weapon.

40. When Handgun Control, Inc., says they want to
        "keep guns out of the wrong hands," they don't
        mean you.

41. Ballistic fingerprinting works so well, that
        of the 19,000 ballistic fingerprints available
        in the Maryland database, not a single one has
        helped solve a crime committed with a firearm.

42. Rosie O'Donnell doesn't think that a firearm
        is necessary for self protection. Which is why
        her personal body guards have handguns.

43. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D, CA) thinks that a
        concealed carry permit will not help prevent
        personal crime, which is why she has one.
