Should Disney Require Its Employees To Be Vaccinated?

ebvwfbw Re:Disneyland is nextdoor to anti-vac Central (652 comments)

Yes, left coast central. Plenty of stupidity for the entire world concentrated in a small area. Hey, good plot for a movie.

Blogger Who Revealed GOP Leader's KKK Ties Had Home Internet Lines Cut

ebvwfbw Re:Senator Byrd (415 comments)

Do you know what a "Dixiecrat" is?

Doesn't sound like it. None of you "Lincoln was a Republican!!!1!1" idiots do. Well, either that, or your cynicism knows no bounds.

No cynicism. You're lost in the fog and that's intentional. They lie a lot. Often they'll say something true, slip in a really big lie, then another truth. This administration often doesn't even bother with that, they just go for really big lies.

You're a liberal that doesn't know what conservatism is. Things are conservative because they worked. Wherever this socialism crap is tried, it fails. That is what the Democrats today really are. Not new, I can take you clear back to Roman times. Same bullshit. I bet you don't even know that if I were to take the National Socialist Party's platform from the 1930s and the Democratic party's platform from 2008, you wouldn't be able to tell which is which. I have a feeling you don't even know what the National Socialist Party's better known name is and that they are to the left. Right of communism, however to the left.

As for this dixicrat BS, not just a southern thing. That's another big lie of theirs.

Ignorance isn't anything to be ashamed of. You can fix that. If you don't, then you're stupid. Nobody can fix stupid.

Blogger Who Revealed GOP Leader's KKK Ties Had Home Internet Lines Cut

ebvwfbw Senator Byrd (415 comments)

Dude was a KKK grand dragon and proud of it. Served until recently. For some reason this was never a concern because he was a Democrat. Lots of racism in the Democratic party. Yet they accuse Republicans of being racist even though they clearly aren't. Lincoln was a Republican. Republicans gave women the right to vote. Republicans - Eisenhower tried to give blacks the civil rights act, which LBJ defeated. LBJ only passed it, the THIRD time it came to him and only because he had to. Jim Crowe laws - all democratic. Check out Governor Wallace. And on and on. If you're a Democrat, you're a racist in my opinion.

Don't mod this as flame bait until you check. Facts hurt sometimes. Once you know the truth - mod as insightful.

Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone

ebvwfbw Re:Times have changed. (779 comments)

My age too. I disagree. We had stupid people like this back then too. They were told to shut up. I can remember in Weaton, which is not far from where this happend the Lyons girls were kidnapped. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L... . All the parents in the neighbourhood were a bit concerned, yet still sent us out. Be back by dark.

Police with the help of the PC bullshit are a lot more stupid today than they were then. Too PC. Black guy, with a crow bar, walking towards a store in the middle of the night. Back then, they'd watch him. He might be planning to break into a store. Today - nope, that's profiling. Surprise, surprise, next day a store was broken into.

Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone

ebvwfbw Re:Cops are right! (779 comments)

Yeah, there are cops out there who shoot children. They might think the kid's backpack is a thermal nuclear device or assault rifle and shoot him on site.

Only if they are robbing someone in the first place. Check out the real facts. Just race baiting.

Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone

ebvwfbw Re:For one mile? (779 comments)

Well the police were called by an asshole. They had to do something. Can't tell the caller to shut the fuck up and mind their own business, can they?

Once they were told the situation and that these were not abandoned kids, they should have returned the kids and moved on. No CPS necessary.

Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone

ebvwfbw Re:Culture of fear (779 comments)

You know what they say. If you're not a Democrat when you're young you have no heart. If you aren't a Republican when you're older, you have no brain. Unfortunately there are a lot of stupid people in this country. More and more with usually just a 9th grade education coming in from Mexico all the time. Only a very stupid country would allow that to happen.

Why We Have To Kiss Off Big Carbon Now

ebvwfbw Re:Hypocrites, liars and communists. (441 comments)

Problem is, if you aren't here how do I know you're working on my stuff. I recently had to let go of an employee that was at work and doing other work. I caught her.

Even so, it does piss me off that I have to drive to work when I'd be a LOT more effective at home.

Why We Have To Kiss Off Big Carbon Now

ebvwfbw Re:Hypocrites, liars and communists. (441 comments)

Prove it. We can show water vapor increases temperature, even methane. I have yet to see anything other than "it's obvious" to show co2 is increasing temperatures.

Bad thing was calling it a "greenhouse gas". Greenhouses don't contain CO2 in much of a concentration. They'd be consumed by the plants, obviously. Greenhouses are hot because of other reasons.

NASA, NOAA: 2014 Was the Warmest Year In the Modern Record

ebvwfbw Re:Someone teach me something here... (360 comments)

Carbon dioxide is a symptom historically, not the cause and they know it. That's why the UN has said that the temperature isn't going up and they don't know why. Somehow, they are even more sure of themselves even though their models are clearly wrong. Even to middle school students. This is all natural, and they know that too. Go back to the 13th century and you'll find Venetians trying to keep the Adriatic sea out of their town. No MM Co2 back then. Breaks their whole model of course.

Just some very wealthy people trying to bullshit all of us into paying them boat loads of money for something that is happening naturally, and we can't stop.

Eric Holder Severely Limits Civil Forfeiture

ebvwfbw Re:Now, can we make it unconstitutional? (309 comments)

Should. Matter of fact in some cases they should go back and bust municipalities that really abused the program. Put their asses in jail.

Eric Holder Severely Limits Civil Forfeiture

ebvwfbw Re:Waiting for Republicans to come in and defend t (309 comments)

It's the Democrats that come up with that "war on" bullshit. War on women, hispanics, blacks, etc. War on women, really? Yet some women bought it. Granted, only the stupid ones. Bad as saying Obama has a war on men since he's not handing out free condoms. Just as absurd.

OTOH, I have a feeling some big Obama supporters are about to be busted and normally they'd lose everything. With this, they keep on going like the energizer bunny.

I bet you didn't know the Jim Crowe laws were all democratic. Look up Governor Wallace, check into it. They have a very, very racist past. All the way up to today.

Ask Slashdot: Migrating a Router From Linux To *BSD?

ebvwfbw What BS (402 comments)

If you've written a Linux device driver, why are you asking us for anything?
You already know damn well how to do it and you know damn well why BSD isn't the right answer.

Go back into your mother's basement, and stay off my lawn.

Do We Need Regular IT Security Fire Drills?

ebvwfbw Some places already do this (124 comments)

What they do prevent changes in security controls until the deadline, then panic! Add in a serious vulnerability that needs to be patched too for good measure. Of course this could be just bad management as well.

Of course policies and procedures should be developed and tested. Otherwise, it's crap. Seen it my entire life. Untested code/procedures don't work.

Microsoft Ends Mainstream Support For Windows 7

ebvwfbw Re:Nostalgic for Windows 7? (639 comments)

Dunno, they moved us over to this office 365 stuff with sharepoint. What crap. Outlook? The 1990s called and they want their e-mail system back. It's like hotmail. Hard to find stuff too. Sharepoint is pain as well. Can't find a thing now, the google search could find anything. Even if it's out there you may still not have access. They also move stuff so you can't even book mark it (and again find it via search because it won't find it).

Thing is, they JUST put me on 7 a few months ago from XP. I don't even have it all set up yet. Win8 is as you said, a non starter.

Maybe we can get them to all use Linux.

UK Government Department Still Runs VME Operating System Installed In 1974

ebvwfbw Re:The California DMV has them beat. (189 comments)

The California DMV has them beat, they are still using code installed on UNISYS mainframes in 1970 to run the DMV core applications.

It is as old as I am...

A lot of states had Univac stuff. I worked on them. I didn't think anyone still had one running. I know the University of Maryland blew it out of the building back in the late 1980s and they wrote a lot of Exec 8. They wanted way too much money to run it. Replaced it with Unix systems of course. Far superior.
Cal should upgrade from that old POS. I never considered it good when it was good. Helped put me through college though.

Science Cannot Prove the Existence of God

ebvwfbw Re:This tired old saw again. (755 comments)

...No, stupid. Try proving the claims that your religion makes are true. Prove miracles.

Science has shown that most of those miracles happened and how. I know, surprised me too.

Prove life after death.

For most people to believe this one, it seems to require a near death experience. If it happens to you, you'll never forget it. It's also very difficult to convince other people. Could simply be the brain filling in events into something that makes sense to you. After all, the easiest person in the world to fool is yourself.

Prove Jesus rose from the grave. Hell, Prove Jesus ever actually existed.

Proving he existed is easy. The Roman records recorded it and it corresponds to the Bible accounts. Only a fool would dispute that. The governor Pontius Pilot (aka one bad dude) - existed as well, no doubt. His rising from the grave this far after the fact is probably impossible. Doesn't matter really. Focusing on that misses the entire point of religion. That is, let's stop killing each other and be civil towards one another. You really can go further in life with other people's help. Towards that end they have buildings called churches where you can meet other people and learn to work well with others, with any luck. In America there's bound to be one that you'd like. If you don't like a particular religion, try another.

Prove that humanity came from a single breeding pair. Find the genetic bottleneck in our genes from when the world was reduced to Noah and his family

This is a lot closer than you probably think. Read here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T... . I didn't get to just two people, however I think you'll agree that just 7 women is darn close. Now how this came to be is the question. Were we brought here from someplace else? Did earth suffer a catastrophic event that wiped out nearly everyone? If we were brought here, that would explain a lot. Finding a catastropic event would also explain a lot, like why the Americas were seemingly not inhabitted for so long.

Early Bitcoin Adopters Facing Extortion Threats

ebvwfbw Re:Still can't believe (106 comments)

.... Here in MA swat teams are private companies, ...

Not gone un-noticed. I know about it clear down in Maryland. So do others. Last I knew they did that so they wouldn't have to answer FOIA requests. You know, try to hide their stupidity. I thought there was legislation to remove their ability to do that. MA is way out of my zone to care about, other than it could spread. Look into it and get it outlawed if that's not already under way. Understand that your life if you live in MA may depend on it. Less Rambo, more Sheriff Taylor.

The end point to this police/racial hoaxes recently is the crazy left wants to nationalize the police. Then we're all screwed.
