States That Raised Minimum Wage See No Slow-Down In Job Growth

WCMI92 Job growth? (777 comments)

Where?

There isn't any job growth. Hell, Microsoft is ditching 18,000 employees while STILL begging for more H1B Indian slave visas.

Domain Registry of America Suspended By ICANN

WCMI92 LOOOOOONG overdue (113 comments)

This bunch of assholes has been sending fake renew notices to my company and to my clients for years. I've of course caught them and prevented people I work for from falling for it.

They never should have been allowed to act as a registrar, and it shows the corruption of ICANN that they weren't kicked in the balls years ago.

Obama Delays Decision On Keystone Pipeline Yet Again

WCMI92 Dither dither dither dither feckless dither (206 comments)

Obama only acts fecklessly after endless dithering.

THAT is why you don't elect a "community organizer" (the politically correct term for "street agitator") President. They don't know how to lead.

Why No Executive Order To Stop NSA Metadata Collection?

WCMI92 Simple, Obama doesn't WANT to stop it! (312 comments)

After all, it helped him steal the 2012 election and the dirt he gets on his political enemies makes it invaluable. If you want to run a dictatorship (and Obama's been governing LIKE one) you need "secret police" spying on your enemies.

Which is why he isn't going to stop it. His announcement was pure window dressing. Like everything else his bumbling Regime does, he wants to APPEAR to be against NSA spying for consumption by the Low Information Masses so that he doesn't get blamed for it, all the while his operatives dig deeper into our privacy.

White House Responds To Net Neutrality Petition

WCMI92 Independend my foot (245 comments)

The FCC is no more "independent" than the IRS.

Note the recent scheme the FCC was going to try, putting bureaucrats in the newsrooms of broadcasters to "study" the reporting of news. Which got quickly withdrawn soon as word got out.

That would have been putting a Regime "political officer" into newsrooms to threaten the LICENSES of broadcasters who don't "praise and worship" Pharaoh.

WCMI92 If Congress won't renew it (206 comments)

Obama will "act on his own" using his phone and pen.

No one has stopped our nascent "emperor" from ruling by Diktat yet...

Supreme Court Refuses To Hear Newegg Patent Case

WCMI92 Re: That East Texas Federal District Courthouse (204 comments)

If they did that (and I agree with the idea) there would be a mass purge of the idiots on the 9th Circuit in San Francisco, the most overturned court in America.

Supreme Court Refuses To Hear Newegg Patent Case

WCMI92 Re:That East Texas Federal District Courthouse (204 comments)

It's not the Texas courts (ie: Texas). It's the FEDERAL judges that were nominated by Presidents for that district.

The state and locality has NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

Windows 9 Already? Apparently, Yes.

WCMI92 If they don't ditch the crap UI (1009 comments)

Windows 9 is ALREADY a miserable failure before it launches.

By going with a single UI for PC/mouse/keyboard AND tablets/phones, they GUARANTEE a UI that's good for NONE of them!

CryptoSeal Shuts Down Consumer VPN Service To Avoid Fighting NSA

WCMI92 Re:Sorry... (361 comments)

The United States is going to become a Turd World IT backwater with our government's obsession with spying on everyone.

Why did we kick the British out of here in the first place?

CryptoSeal Shuts Down Consumer VPN Service To Avoid Fighting NSA

WCMI92 Re:This NSA crap is much too much, and ungentleman (361 comments)

Government is inherently incompetent and lazy. Why do work when you can force people at gunpoint to make your job easy?

Especially when you can throw people in jail for the "crime" of revealing that they MADE YOU do this.

WCMI92 Re:Sad (361 comments)

The United States is now Officially a Turd World Country being ruled by a Turd World Dictator.

NONE of this is legal by the highest laws of our Republic. But we aren't a Republic anymore.

WCMI92 Re:Constitution ? What "constitution" ? (114 comments)

heir subjugation of their subjects (aka, people like you and me) did not start yesterday. It started DECADES AGO, it's only now that they have gained so much power that they have become SO EMBOLDEN that they dare to publicly dis-regard the Constitution and everything that was stated inside the Constitution.

Who is to blame for it ? Them in Washington, D.C., or us, the voters who voted them in, every fucking four years, without fail ?

The biggest need we have right now if we want to remain a free people is NOT the formation of a third party, at this point we DO NOT EVEN HAVE A SECOND PARTY!

NEITHER party opposes the transformation of this Republic into a tyrannical Regime with unlimited power and authority. The DemocRAT party orgasms whenever the name OBAMA!!! is uttered. The Republican party is led by a bunch of RINOS who's only meaningful difference with the Democrats is that they will lead us to bankruptcy and slavery a couple weeks later.

WCMI92 Re:You know that things are bad... (114 comments)

Biggest threat to Microsoft's business was their massive blunder with Windows 8, and the failure of Windows 8.1 to fix it in any meaningful way. So what if we get the "start" button back only to be taken back to the retarded touch interface of monochromatic tile bullshit where you can't find your applications!

WCMI92 The government has NO AUTHORITY (114 comments)

...to pass laws abridging THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, or the PRESS...

These companies don't need to beg the government or grovel before any court. The Constitution grants them the right to free speech, INCLUDING the right to disclose what the GOVERNMENT is demanding of them to violate their customers.

It's time to quit ACCEPTING the premise of this kind of government power and authority. It's time to start showing the Obama Regime the SAME LEVEL OF RESPECT it's showing to the Constitution!

Nokia: Microsoft Must Evolve To Make Windows Phone a Success

WCMI92 Re:Good luck .. (230 comments)

Have you spent much time with Windows 7? I would say it's UI is in every way better than Windows 2000.

I disagree. Windows 7 was where I started using Classic Shell (which will also make Windows 8 bearable). The last OS UI that, IMHO, could be argued as an improvement over it's predecessor was Windows XP, and the differences between it and Windows 2000's UI were very minor and mostly thematic.

Windows 7 attempted to be a poor copy of the Mac OS UI (encouraging you to dock all your programs to the taskbar) and Windows 8 attempted to be a piss poor copy of an Android/iPad/iPhone touchscreen UI on a mouse and keyboard PC desktop...
