Journalists Route Around White House Press Office

Reason58 Re:Apparently Worse Now (110 comments)

"They're the same party as far as any rational person is concerned." I guess gay people wanting the legal protections or marriage, starving people wanting food, dying people wanting medical care, victimless "criminals" wanting to ingest a plant, and the poor wanting a safety net to keep them off the streets aren't rational people. Yep, both parties are totally the same.

So then we are in agreement it has nothing to do with the current president and everything to do with the broken system.

How Nigeria Stopped Ebola

Reason58 Re:It will never work here (381 comments)

Wow, the number one politician on Earth heavily considers politics when making a decision. How completely unlike every other politician that has ever existed. I'm sure it is due to his party affiliation.

Reason58 Re:Suspension of Disbelief (193 comments)

Code.org: Blame Tech Diversity On Education Pipeline, Not Hiring Discrimination

Reason58 Re:I have a crazy idea (227 comments)

Organizations like Google hire a larger percentage of women than there are actual graduates with IT related degrees. They are over representing women and under representing men. The problem is far more at the educational level than the professional.

Accused Ottawa Cyberbully Facing 181 Charges Apologizes

Reason58 Re:Right. (140 comments)

And it is a coincidence that after over a decade he suddenly comes to the realization that his actions were wrong the instant he was arrested? It couldn't have anything to do with the fact that it will reduce his virtually guaranteed sentence?

Accused Ottawa Cyberbully Facing 181 Charges Apologizes

Reason58 Right. (140 comments)

Oh, he's sorry alright. Sorry he got caught.

Remorse is possible for a bad decision made in the heat of the moment. This man, on the other hand, was deliberate and meticulous in his abuse of several people that lasted over a *decade*. These are not the actions of someone who made a mistake, these are the actions of a sociopath.
