The Almost Forgotten Story of the Amiga 2000

Lord Kano Forgotten by whom? (192 comments)

I talk about retrocomputing with several people and most of those who are both over 30 and a long time computer users remember the Amiga.

Geographic Segregation By Education

Lord Kano Re:Translation (Rough) (230 comments)

You speak for all the people who were subjected to actual racism?

I speak only for myself and I am such a person.

I have heard others say so for themselves.

Most people misunderstand analogies, and they also misunderstand Godwin's law.

You may have misunderstood my explanation.

Geographic Segregation By Education

Lord Kano Re:Translation (Rough) (230 comments)

And making analogies involving racism is a good way to get people to talk about real problems like this.

No. Making such analogies offends people who have been subjected to actual racism. They tend to stop listening to whatever else you say.

Like when someone takes whatever gripe they have, even when it's legitimate and likens the opposition to Nazis. At that people they lose people who might have been willing to side with them. That's also what a fake racism analogy does.

Geographic Segregation By Education

Lord Kano Re:Translation (Rough) (230 comments)

Maybe not, but then life isn't fair.

I bet a lot of people said the same thing about racism in employment.

I am beyond disgusted with people trying to equate everything to the racism that was a part of Western society's fabric until relatively recently.

Your failure to further your education has nothing in common with people who were never considered for jobs because of their race. You could have chosen to get a degree, they couldn't have chosen to be white.

You may think that you're being an insightful, open minded, progressive but you're being an insensitive douche with no perspective.

KDE Releases Frameworks 5

Lord Kano But does it suck? (87 comments)

I'm completely serious.

I HATE KDE4. I still use Trinity wherever I can because that was the KDE that I liked.

I don't care about what whiz bang technology went intro this. I don't care how many man years were invested. I don't care who else likes it. I will reserve judgement until I use it myself. If it's not as good as KDE3.5, I'll stick with Trinity.

Chic-Fil-A was donating money to organizations opposed to marriage equality

No, Dan Cathy donated money to organizations that worked against redefining marriage to fit a certain political agenda.

U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Religious Objections To Contraception

Lord Kano Re:Gee Catholic judges (1330 comments)

You and the parent both fail to realise that the laws trump your religions. If their is a conflict between the 2 the law always takes precedent. Claiming your invisible sky-daddy wants or doesn't want something is irrelevant.

You're just so full of wrong here.

First, you mean precedence, not precedent.
Second, the SCOTUS just saw it my way.

So, you can go suck a bag full of dicks.

U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Religious Objections To Contraception

Lord Kano Re:KKKonservatism at its finest. (1330 comments)

how is the poster a moron?

I can't say for certain how he or she became a moron but the idiocy he or she is displaying is how I know that he or she is a moron.

Five years ago you would never think a corporation had a right to unlimited political spending in the name of the right of free speech of a corporation.

I argued that exact position before McCain-Feingold became law. If each of the people who own a corporation has the right to free speech, it's unthinkable that when they work together they somehow lose that right.

Last year you would not have thought Hobby Lobby could prevent it's employees from getting their Federally guaranteed earned health benefits in the name of a corporation's religious inclination.

1. No one is prevented from getting anything. Every Hobby Lobby employee who can get a doctor to prescribe birth control pills can still get them. Hobby Lobby just won't be forced to pay for it.
2. Yes, I not only thought but I hoped that would be the case when the issue was decided by the SCOTUS.

It really is just a few months at this rate before they vote.

Yeah, I see why you posted anonymously. If you had used your name, in a year, I would have waited to see you post and then replied to remind you what a fucking moron you are.

It's not going to happen. Ever.

What's to stop it?

The fact that to be able to have the right to vote, one must be a citizen and in order to be a citizen one must be a human being.

Pregnancy: it takes two to happen, but it's always the woman's fault.

Right, because running a corporation is a religious practice. Give us this day our daily board meeting.

Every part of your day can be a religious practice.

For some people, running their business in accordance with their faith is a part of their religious practices.

Chick-fil-A were attacked because they were openly bigoted.

Were there any documented cases of Chic-Fil-A refusing to serve someone because they were gay? Refusing to hire someone because they were gay? Attacking someone because they were gay?

No, you fucking moron.

Corporations are "persons" not "people" and moreover, only "Citizens" can vote. Corporations are not now, have never been and shall never be "citizens".

Interviews: Ask Lawrence Lessig About His Mayday PAC

Lord Kano Re:Government regulation of political speech (308 comments)

You can't run ads that mention political candidates or parties 2 weeks before an election.

How about political editorials?
Who will decide if "news" coverage is impartial or biased towards or against any candidate or party?

Congratulations, you found out that sometimes, there's a trade-off in a decision that you make, and a perfect solution doesn't exist.

Sure it does. Let people say whatever they want to say and in the marketplace of ideas, the most compelling argument wins.

Interviews: Ask Lawrence Lessig About His Mayday PAC

Lord Kano Re:Should the US government censor political blogs (308 comments)

CocaCola does not get a vote in November.

Because CocaCola is not a citizen. Illegal aliens do not have the right to vote in November either. (We all know that many of them will anyway, but they have no right to do so.)

but the corporation is not a person.

Yes it is. Being a "person" under the law doesn't require one to be a human being. There is still a class of human beings who are not "persons" under the laws of the USA. You need to understand the underlying premise here.

The Constitution refers to "Persons", "The People" and "Citizens". These are three distinct types of entity under the law. I am a Citizen and by virtue of that, I am a person and one of the people.

Corporations are absolutely NOT people.

No, they are not "people". They are "persons". There is a legal distinction and an important one.

If a dog bites you, can you sue the dog? No. Why? Because the dog is not a person.
Can you sue a corporation? Yes. Why? Because it's a legal "person". "Incorporate" means to "bring together into one body".

Lord Kano Lord Kano writes  |  about 8 years ago

This journal entry is for metamoderators.

I hold some political beliefs that are unpopular. For several years, there has been a campaign to destroy my karma because of them. Approximately once per week, someone gets mod points and goes back and mods down my posts. I'm not saying that every one of my posts is brilliantly insightful or informative. I am not above occasionally being flippant or stooping to the level of a troll, but many of my on-topic posts are moderated as off topic and many serious discussions are moderated as trolls.

If you see such an example, please metamoderate it as unfair.

Thank you.

George W Bush!

Lord Kano Lord Kano writes  |  more than 9 years ago

I couldn't be happier about the presidential election. GWB is the winner. With one supreme court justice in poor health and several others who are well past the average life expectance for Americans, it couldn't be more important to have him in the White House and a Republican majority in congress.

We can get a clear majority on the supreme court. We can get Roe V. Wade reversed and let the states decide for themselves on the issue of abortion.

It's going to be at least 4 more years before anyone tries to ban any guns.

We can breathe a breath of fresh air because the issues that are important to us are on the table.

The thing I like best about President Bush is that he's our Bill Clinton. No matter how much the other side hates him, it only makes them look worse. I was a dedicated Clinton hater. I even bought a bottle of wine that I'm saving until the day he dies. Now I can be as smug as the democrats were on Nov 3 1996.

Talk about a mandate to lead.
