Scotland Votes No To Independence

amiga3D Re:Everyone loses (325 comments)

More than a million homosexuals? Where do you come up with that number?

This is what wikipedia gives

"Between 1933 and 1945, an estimated 100,000 men were arrested as homosexuals, of whom some 50,000 were officially sentenced.[1] Most of these men served time in regular prisons, and an estimated 5,000 to 15,000 of those sentenced were incarcerated in Nazi concentration camps.[1] It is unclear how many of the 5,000 to 15,000 eventually perished in the camps, but leading scholar Rüdiger Lautmann believes that the death rate of homosexuals in concentration camps may have been as high as 60%."

So we're looking at less than 15,000 dead maybe as low as 3,000. Long way from a million.

While not a fan of homosexuality (I admit I find it strange and disgusting) I feel no particular hatred either. More like indifference. I definetly do not support persecution but the outright lies from proponents of that lifestyle are so fucking outrageous.

US Military Aware Only Belatedly of Chinese Attacks Against Transport Contractors

amiga3D Re: real computer systems? (13 comments)

It hardly matters. What matters is that as usual the agencies responsible for catching this stuff are too busy spying on Americans to do their real job. 9/11 came and went and they didn't learn a thing. Incompetent as ever.

NSA Director Says Agency Is Still Trying To Figure Out Cyber Operations

amiga3D Re:They are pretending that they do not know (103 comments)

The right way is for the President to go to Congress and ask for a declaration of war. We keep fighting police actions instead and police actions by definition shouldn't not be called war. If it was a war we'd have it declared and ramp up to get it over with instead of this death by a thousand cuts stuff we're doing now.

NSA Director Says Agency Is Still Trying To Figure Out Cyber Operations

amiga3D Re:Protect us against cyber-threats? (103 comments)

I'm saying that people will always have issues. People hate for all kinds of reasons and as a nation we will always have enemies. A religion that has a major, not minor component, that states "believe the way we do or we'll kill you" is never going to be my friend and I don't give a shit what race or sect or whatever they are. How many times have we tried to be friends with someone and then once our common goal is met or gone they go back to being our enemies? It's an ugly world and to think just because you're nice to people and give them lots of money they'll love you is a deadly fallacy. And yes many times we've been the bad guy, there is way too much of "the end justifies the means" kind of thinking going on.

NSA Director Says Agency Is Still Trying To Figure Out Cyber Operations

amiga3D Re:Protect us against cyber-threats? (103 comments)

You can't buy friends. No matter how much money you spread around it ends up with most of it in the hands of the thugs running all these little shitholes and the people still hate us because we don't bow towards Mecca. The NSA have a job to do but they need to clean house by firing everyone there from the top down to minor level administrators. All the idiots in charge should have been fired right after 9/11. Instead of rolling heads we got the fucking "Patriot" act. They aint' patriots they're fucking traitors to the Constitution they swore an oath to. Not one of those sorry fucking cunts got fired! Thousands dead, towers down and nobody got fired much less put in jail for criminal negligence. It's a God Damn outrage.

NSA Director Says Agency Is Still Trying To Figure Out Cyber Operations

amiga3D Re:They are pretending that they do not know (103 comments)

I find it easy to believe. He's typical of the fucking morons that run the bureaucracy of this nation. War is what happens between nations and criminal activity is what happens when individuals or gangs break the law. This whole thing of calling these thugs terrorists tends to legitimatize them and makes them more effective. Just catch them, throw them in a hole and toss the key away. Enough of all the drama already. Now they've twisted things so that minor criminals serve time like they were mass murderers or something. It's like the terrorists won, they destroyed the entire culture so that you can't even fly from Atlanta to New York without feeling like you're in the old Soviet Union. It feels like you're trying to sneak out plans for a new Red Navy submarine.

FBI Completes New Face Recognition System

amiga3D Re:So wear a Guy Fawkes mask (129 comments)

I see your point. The problem of course is when you become the criminal. In the future I suspect there will be a lot more restrictions. A lot more and they already have the system coming into place that will insure compliance with whatever they mandate. The reason of course is that in about 8 years or so the government will be bankrupt and when they can't write those checks without printing ridiculous amounts of phony money there will be a lot of people that will suddenly find their monthly check doesn't buy a living, even a meager one. That's the day they will need all this stuff to control a pissed off and hungry populace.

Artificial Spleen Removes Ebola, HIV Viruses and Toxins From Blood Using Magnets

AT&T Proposes Net Neutrality Compromise

amiga3D The Most Evil (236 comments)

Just the fact that AT&T proposed it is enough to poison the entire proposal. Anything out of AT&T is going to be an attempt to fuck somebody because that's what they truly excel at. After all the taxpayers have done to provide money to build these guys networks and the subsidies they've gotten over the decades it's time for it to end.

Extent of Antarctic Sea Ice Reaches Record Levels

amiga3D Re:It's getting hotter still! (607 comments)

And here I thought we were talking about ice. Snow is precipitation, ice is frozen water. Generally snow may or may not melt upon reaching the earth depending on surface temperature. Ice of course is formed by freezing temperatures causing water to freeze. I'm not a climatologist but I do have a general idea of the basics.

I was wondering about the anti-biotics myself. It sure makes me suspicious about the rest of the info.

Of course, the hotter it gets the more ice we'll see.

This is true. There is no such thing as gravity, the reason we don't fall off the Earth is because it sucks. It's suction that holds us down.

Researcher Fired At NSF After Government Questions Her Role As 1980s Activist

Researcher Fired At NSF After Government Questions Her Role As 1980s Activist

amiga3D Re:Wrong Title (499 comments)

No, actually I don't. Regardless though, when you apply for a Federal job it's a lot like the scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit where Bob Hoskins goes through the wall into Toon Town and all the laws of reality change. If you don't want to play, don't go there.

Researcher Fired At NSF After Government Questions Her Role As 1980s Activist

amiga3D Re:Wrong Title (499 comments)

If you've ever worked for a Federal agency then you know how ridiculous it can truly get. That's one reason I dread any new Big government program such as the Affordable Health Care Act. Pelosi was quite right when she said "We have to pass it to know what's in it." US stands for Uncle Stupid. I don't agree with all this crap but it is what it is and if they wanted to they could send her to jail for falsifying her application.

Researcher Fired At NSF After Government Questions Her Role As 1980s Activist

amiga3D Re:Wrong Title (499 comments)

Do you seriously think that being part of a group that has ties with a terrorist organization and then continuing to have contact with two actual terrorists while they are in prison is equivalent to your analogy? If so, do yourself a favor and get someone to help you fill out any clearance applications you might submit. Your ignorance will only get you in trouble.
