NY Doctor Recently Back From West Africa Tests Positive For Ebola

Ron Goodman Re:Bennett Haselton on the Ebola outbreak (340 comments)

People don't care about the real risk, they'd rather get their panties in a bunch about some scenario they read about in a Tom Clancy novel.


OS X 10.10 Yosemite Review

Ron Goodman Yosemite (303 comments)

The official release must have been the same as Beta 5--no update showed up for me. I've been running it since the first beta without issue, although I was hoping they'd redo the Trash icon.

Ron Goodman Re:(Re:The Children!) Why? I'm not a pedophile! (284 comments)

I'd be a little more sympathetic to his position if it were not for the massive abuses of various govt. agencies which were recently revealed.

Ron Goodman Re:IvePhone a Distaster (203 comments)

It's such a disaster they sold 10 million the first weekend? Right. I won't be worrying about Apple for a while yet.

Court Releases DOJ Memo Justifying Drone Strike On US Citizen

Ron Goodman Re:Yeah sure (371 comments)

And if we had still had a draft, the public outcry against these bullshit wars would be noticeably louder, maybe even loud enough to slow down the idiots promoting them. The only reason we're not bombing Syria was public resistance to the idea--too bad they didn't do the same for Iraq and Afghanistan.

IRS Recycled Lerner Hard Drive

Ron Goodman Missing IRS emails (682 comments)

At this point, it's hard to take seriously any of the right wing complaints against Obama. Even if a particular one might be justified, there has been so much fake outrage from them that they just look like clowns.

Obama Says He May Or May Not Let the NSA Exploit the Next Heartbleed

Ron Goodman Re:Gotta wonder (134 comments)

I doubt they have anything on him. He's just frightened of something happening and his political opponents claiming that he "weakened" us somehow, which they would in a heartbeat.

Obama Praises NSA But Promises To Rein It In

US Promises Not To Kill Or Torture Snowden

Ron Goodman Re:Eric Holder (616 comments)

I voted for him twice and am disappointed, but have to admit he is still better than the alternative.

Consumer Strikes Back at Crooked Online Retailer

Ron Goodman Deal with a reputalbe merchant. (659 comments)

Why even consider dealing with anyone other than B&H or Adorama? It's not worth the potential hassle to save a couple of bucks.
