Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

drainbramage Re:Fuck Obamacare (723 comments)

You really think Patty Murry, Maria Cantwell, Jim McDermott and so on are 'actively fighting ACA'?
Good for you.

You live in an amazing place compared to WA or even OR..
I am curious, did you accidentally omit mentioning a subsidy you 'earned' that I do not have available?

Double Take: Condoleezza Rice As Dropbox's Newest Board Member

drainbramage Re:Chappelle said it nicely (313 comments)

Nothing more hated then a self made very successful minority.
Demonstrating that the government doesn't have to give a minority special help and a free pass is strictly forbidden.
When liberals stop owning and grooming minorities to keep them beholden to the master government is when we will see true freedom, not doublespeak.

How Cochlear Implants Are Being Blamed For Killing Deaf Culture

drainbramage Re:Let it die (510 comments)

Were you going to contrast American culture with some other nation?
Perhaps Japan, France, Germany, South Africa, UAE?

Under the Chassis: A Look At Tesla's Battery Shield

drainbramage Re:Problems? (152 comments)

You have a bias-ply mind in a radial world.
Perhaps I missed all the 'right wing news outlets' hammering Tesla.
Was it ABC? CBS? CNN? Comedt Central? MSNBC? MTV? NBC? NPR?
Well, let me know because I can't monitor them all by myself.
You make a list and wheel (see what I did there) run those rascals down like the rabid chipmunks they are.

Can you Eliza (or Siri) Robocallers?

drainbramage drainbramage writes  |  more than 2 years ago

drainbramage (588291) writes "I'm sick of those robocalls trying to get personal info. They ignore the do-not-call list and my requests to not call me.
I have begun to waste their time by coming up with random questions, but this also wastes my time.
Why can't something like Elica (or Siri) be interfaced to my phone?
Anyone using their Linux box as a phone answering machine have an idea?"
