Net Neutrality Is 'Marxist,' According To a Koch-Backed Astroturf Group

Sarius64 Re:For Guys Who Are About 40th in Political Contri (522 comments)

You do realize that most of the ethics rules for contributions were written in response to Armand Hammer's blatant purchase of Al Gore Sr? But you just keep believing which PACs are evil.

The Forbes 2014 Billionaires List disagrees with your assessment. Looking at the list:

#6 Charles Koch $41.9 B $0 78 diversified United States
#6 David Koch $41.9 B $0 74 diversified United States

#27 George Soros $23 B $0 84 hedge funds United States

Clearly nowhere near the '20x' mark you cite.

In terms of tactics, clearly the Kochs are amateurs compared to Soros. If I were the Kochs, I'd hire a team to emulate the buying patterns Soros has accomplished for influence. He's almost singularly purchased more media outlets than any other billionaire on Forbe's list, financed 527 organizations with the sole purpose of ousting Bush 43, financed revolutions, created his own personal brown shirts around the world, and had more access to the current President than any other figures of either party. The Kochs could learn a lot from him.

Climate Damage 'Irreversible' According Leaked Climate Report

Sarius64 Re:Delayed action (506 comments)

Have politicians give up their salaries to pay for carbon credits. Have progressives pay for the legions of illegals on the welfare doles now. Have conservatives pay for abortion clinics for militant atheists. Have everyone pay for the continued corporate welfare cycle that's not in the Constitution.

How the Ancient Egyptians (Should Have) Built the Pyramids

Sarius64 Re:So, is there any shred of EVIDENCE? (202 comments)

Appears to be a lot of speculation. Missed the part where settled science proves the 70/80 ton blocks are poured concrete/sifu.

I love settled science! BTW, how does this method designed for 2.5 ton blocks scale to 80 ton blocks?

I'm past complaining. Just yelling at the wind here, though, I admit.

Funny, I didn't take him sticking up for the Koch brothers. I took him laughing at you idiots that watch people manipulate the markets under the color of X Party and people, like you, with your silly biases perform like the perfect little puppets.

Sarius64 Re:What's so American (522 comments)

Not to mention, there's absolutely no penalty to the ISPs for lying about the service they're selling you. Cox is selling me 80 mbps. All manner of measurement says I'm barely getting 20 mbps. No amount of complaining helps as Cox has successfully lobbied the local government to grant them a virtual monopoly on content and access.

Slashdot Asks: Cheap But Reasonable Telescopes for Kids?

Sarius64 Re:Dobsonian (185 comments)

I was wondering, would you have advice on someone with $50K in disposable income that wanted to get a large telescope for mounting in the Nevada desert? I would be able to get network connectivity between the site and Reno so remote features would be a bonus on any suggestions.

Tech Looks To Obama To Save Them From 'Just Sort of OK' US Workers

Sarius64 Re:You can work (almost) anywhere in the world (441 comments)

The US could methodically destroy agriculture around the world if other countries didn't impose tariffs. Why do other countries support these racist policies?

Damn! If only he had bankrupt an energy conglomerate, dissolved hundred of millions of dollars in pension funds, and legally embezzled 9 figures into personal accounts! He'd have received no punishment at all!
