Why Robot Trucks Could Be Headed To Afghanistan (And Everywhere Else)

d34thm0nk3y Re:The Last One (Today)? (135 comments)

Yeah, I get ya. Mostly trying to get word of the boycott out. Tomorrow is Friday and I don't visit over the weekend generally. Boycott starts Monday.

You'll probably see more from me tomorrow. Then I'll be off for a week. Then we'll see what happens.

On February 5, 2014, Slashdot announced through a javascript popup that they are starting to "move in to" the new Slashdot Beta design. Slashdot Beta is a trend-following attempt to give Slashdot a fresh look, an approach that has led to less space for text and an abandonment of the traditional Slashdot look. Much worse than that, Slashdot Beta fundamentally breaks the classic Slashdot discussion and moderation system.

If you haven't seen Slashdot Beta already, open this in a new tab. After seeing that, click here to return to classic Slashdot.

We should boycott stories and only discuss the abomination that is Slashdot Beta until Dice abandons the project.
We should boycott slashdot entirely during the week of Feb 10 to Feb 17 as part of the wider slashcott

Moderators - only spend mod points on comments that discuss Beta
Commentors - only discuss Beta
http://slashdot.org/recent - Vote up the Fuck Beta stories

Keep this up for a few days and we may finally get the PHBs attention.

US Treasury Completes Bailout of General Motors

d34thm0nk3y Re:Told you so ... (425 comments)

I also remember telling people over and over how this was going to be a huge loss since GM would never be able to pay it back and every liberal democrat crawled out from under every rock saying that this was going to be a great profit and win. NOW ... now its "Oh, we never meant to make a profit." Yeah, just like if I liked my health care / doctor I could keep it. Just wait till the 2014 elections ...

From the summary: $49.5-billion bailout of the automaker begun in late 2008 under former President George W. Bush.

Unless you know a lot of liberal democrats that were GW Bush fans...

If he or Edward Snowden ever land on American soil again, they'll be thrown in jail before the TSA even has a chance to harass them.

Citizen Eavesdrops On Former NSA Director Michael Hayden's Phone Call

d34thm0nk3y Re:Bragging about torture (390 comments)

The mainstream media had (IMHO thankfully) a bit of a hate-on for Bush, so every little thing his administration did wrong was broadcast loud and clear.

Except for...you know... the whole fraudulent run-up to the Iraq war.

US Now Produces More Oil and Gas Than Russia and Saudi Arabia

d34thm0nk3y Re:So why didn't prices go down then? (416 comments)

Contaminated well water is used for drinking water for nearby cities and towns. There have been over 1,000 documented cases of water contamination next to areas of gas drilling as well as cases of sensory, respiratory, and neurological damage due to ingested contaminated water.

Please provide a citation to a single case of groundwater contamination shown to be a result of fracking.

Immigration Bill Passes the Senate, Includes More H-1B Visas

d34thm0nk3y Re:HAH (274 comments)

The summary alleges that there is little empirical evidence to suggest that foreign engineers displace American engineers as a whole.

Perhaps if you wish to argue agains that statement you could provide some empirical evidence to suggest that foreign engineers displace American engineers as a whole.

d34thm0nk3y (653414) writes "I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for lying and obstructing the CIA leak investigation.

From the article:
Libby was convicted in March of perjury and obstruction of justice for lying to investigators about his conversations with reporters about CIA official Valerie Plame. Fitzgerald questioned Bush and Cheney in a probe that became a symbol of the administration's deepening problems."
