$125,000 Settlement Given To Man Arrested for Photographing NYPD

Lord Kano Re:Spilling over to white people (229 comments)

The issue isn't that you disagreed with his assertion, he was obviously incorrect. The issue is that you were an obnoxious twat about it.

When he said "people like you", I read it as "obnoxious twats".

$125,000 Settlement Given To Man Arrested for Photographing NYPD

Lord Kano Re:how are cops like bank executives? (229 comments)

Ferber's boss would be seriously derelict in their duty if they didn't fire him for this.

Two words.
Police Union.

There is almost no accountability for law enforcement. That's a part of what draws sociopaths into that field of work.

$125,000 Settlement Given To Man Arrested for Photographing NYPD

Lord Kano Re:Spilling over to white people (229 comments)

You don't know me, so you have no idea what "people like" me are about.

Would you be happy if he said "People who behave like you just did"?

$125,000 Settlement Given To Man Arrested for Photographing NYPD

Lord Kano Re:Spilling over to white people (229 comments)

I agree, that the only thing that's new is that the police are now treating middle and upper income white people they they have always treated poor whites and minorities.

The President is the head of the Executive branch of government, he is sometimes called the "Chief Law Enforcement Officer in The United States" but he has no authority to direct local police in any way.

He can instruct the FBI to carry out his directives because they are a part of the Department of Justice which is an Executive Branch agency.

$125,000 Settlement Given To Man Arrested for Photographing NYPD

Lord Kano Re:idgi (229 comments)

Yes, they did but who is going to arrest them? Their fellow officers? Is the District Attorney going to alienate the officers who bring the cases and bolster his career?

Welcome to the USA.

Two Years of Data On What Military Equipment the Pentagon Gave To Local Police

Lord Kano Re:No (264 comments)

This has been one of my names for over 20 years. I even receive mail under this name.

If you know where to look, there's a clear enough connection between this name and the one on my driver's license.

If anyone is looking for me, I'm not hard to find.

Point-and-Shoot: TrackingPoint's New Linux-Controlled AR-15s

Not all ranges.

The club to which I belong only forbids uncontrolled bump fire. Meaning, if you have a bump fire stock, you can control it and it's allowed.

Ask Slashdot: IT Personnel As Ostriches?

Lord Kano Ignore nothing. Pretend to ignore everything. (246 comments)

To mangle a phrase, just because you take no interest in office politics doesn't mean that office politics won't take an interest in you.

Pay attention to little things. Watch the comings and goings of those who think they're players. Listen to everything that people try to tell you and never take sides out loud.

"Yeah, really?" is pretty much all I say when people try to drag me into their battles.

I hate the games of office politics but I'm a realist and I understand that I have to know the game to avoid it.

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.

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.

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.
