Beer Price Crisis On the Horizon

flyneye Re:So - who's in love with the government again? (375 comments)

Because, somewhere, in an office, is a useless bastard not wanting to get his job cut in the next round of budget bingo. He wants to do something useful, so he makes up a straw enemy and beats the hell out of it. His concern is for his own useless job and the fact that he will have to enter the real world and work like one of the people/proletariat and actually be answerable to a boss.
Jousting @ windmills has saved more government jobs and cost taxpayers more than Hillaries last two terms in office.

Ask Slashdot: Hungry Students, How Common?

flyneye Re:first post :P (360 comments)

Youre right , money management IS a problem for young college attendees.
Mom and Dad spent high school buying everything for Jr. that his job at McDonalds didnt cover. So Jr.s first splash in the adult pool doesnt leave room to buy food because the cable bill is two months due, he already put in an order for an oz. of mexican pot and its his turn to buy beer this weekend, he had to buy more data minutes for his phone and gas for the graduation Stang costs waaaay too much.
The answer is; get a girlfriend, shower more and get a girlfriend. Get one with some meat on her bones, she likes to eat and will feed you. Big gals always try harder in the sack too. Win/win!

It really IS important to teach the young how the world works and how to get from point A to point B, before turning them loose on the wild , wild world.
OOOH baybeee baby, its a wild world, its hard to get by without a fat girl.
The difference is; dont pick up girls @ bars, pick up girls @ Dairy Queen!

Preventative Treatment For Heartbleed On Healthcare.gov

flyneye Re:Yea right... (76 comments)

Yeah, they do, or the Meta-cops will bust them for not doing the right thing.
There are meta-cops, right?
The Fed is answerable, right?
Someone is big enough to do something about it, if they dont , right?
If there is a law they have to obey it or face consequences, right?
We have a long list of examples of this , right?
Bush? Clinton? Reagan? Carter? Ford? NIXON... see, someone got caught, feel better? Johnson didnt get caught because he was funny and Kennedy didnt get caught because he was a soap opera. Only homely Quakers with shifty eyes get caught, WORD!

New 'Google' For the Dark Web Makes Buying Dope and Guns Easy

flyneye Re:Oh man (145 comments)

Yeah, and now that it is newsworthy, a whole bunch of cops and agencies are going to expend as many tax dollars as they can toward doing the Silk Road bit to this Grams. Of course, someone else will start one somewhere else and more tax dollars will disappear into the aether. Done often enough, this could cut funding to Repubmocrat programs which buy them votes, while polishing the donut for the enforcement agencies. Repubmocrats, not wanting to detract from ,doing it for the children, will attempt to enact more internet control to protect their usual modus craperandi. Look for the CIA to be knee deep in Grams a la Sandinista, and the whole mess swirls round and round till it gets stuck in the plumbing and the log will have to be plunged manually.
That was the H.S.Thompson version.
Business as usual on the internet and D.C.
That was the NYT version.

Study Finds US Is an Oligarchy, Not a Democracy

flyneye Re:Are you kidding (805 comments)

You may want to crack a history book. We were a Republic up to the point we adopted democrazy around a century ago.
Apparently there is a flaw in your internal dictionary. Not to worry, happens all the time.

Study Finds US Is an Oligarchy, Not a Democracy

flyneye Re:Are you kidding (805 comments)

But if you vote conservative, you are still voting for the one party Repubmocrat system. Lose/lose.
Go back to being a republic, give each and every political party an EQUAL amount of time and money(yes, confiscate and redistribute campaign money from ALL parties), even if they are nuts, debate them ALL together, deny any other debates between parties and let the candidates fall where they may.
We need choice, even not so good ones, to compare and contrast, otherwise most people will go on thinking that the one party system is the only serious way to proceed.( continued downward spiral)

Study Finds US Is an Oligarchy, Not a Democracy

flyneye Re:Are you kidding (805 comments)

So, we have an oligarchy instead of a democrazy. Hard to say that either is an improvement over the other. I would almost say one got us the other in a round about way. What we want is to go back to being a REPUBLIC. This democrazy thing has gone on for about a century, it is a monumental FAIL. TIme to reset to Republic and try again. I bet we stay a Republic this time.

U.S. Biomedical Research 'Unsustainable' Prominent Researchers Warn

flyneye Re:Empty summary (135 comments)

Yeah, but a retarded citizen on the street, could note most of the other problems. Maybe not too, Ive been modded down for years for pointing up the obvious flaws, not only in the Medical field, but several other fields. It all boils down to money, power and control. It is NOT about finding a cure, an answer, facts or the truth.
It is skewed, enhanced, withheld, hidden, ransomed and outright lied. We are told of all the wonderful progress of science, yet we are not much better off than the turn of the last century. Its been prettied up and hyperbolized and THEY will tell you how FAR weve come, even if it is only baby steps. Most will believe it , because they want to believe something.
Science is a laughable crock of shit and we COULD have done so much better if only we had weeded out the corruption and regulated the piss out of it, early on.
Disagree? Ill only call you naiive.
Tin foil? Nope, I dont care enough to call it conspiracy. Its more like creeping rot with no central motivator.

Saturn May Have Given Birth To a Baby Moon

flyneye Re:Can I be the first to say.....? (71 comments)

Saturn, previously thought to be a planet, surprised the world by being a life-form. Scientists are scrambling to Mars where a moon size chunk of what appears to be feces expelled by the entity previously known as planet, crashed.

IRS Can Now Seize Your Tax Refund To Pay a Relative's Debt

flyneye Re:Over 18 (630 comments)

Wait till everyone realizes how much S.S. drawn from pay is KEPT after the beneficiary dies.
I am sure everyone can agree that more than offsets any overpayment , any time.
Unless of course, the government is willing to PAY the overage to the beneficiaries family upon death.
This is going to be a messy ending for some congress clown who will have to move to another country when the people identify him/her. I bet its that stupid Pelosi slut.

Yeah, and when they get here, get tried and sentenced in Nebraska, they will end up in a Kansas or Missouri prison where a fellow prisoner from Arkansas will be heard to say, Boy, Yuriy, you sure do got a purdy mouth on you, I bet you can squeal like a fat ol piggy.

Nat Geo Writer: Science Is Running Out of "Great" Things To Discover

flyneye Re:Horgan is sans clue IMHO (292 comments)

We do NOT know these things, we merely believe these things, as they are still in research and development phases. While some of these things only work for the task at hand, it is not expected progress in these fields will be speeding near fruition as monies needed to grease the machine tend to stop as immediate goals are reached.All the above fields suffer from incompleteness with vast amounts to be discovered before we know much at all about them. You may as well try to tack a Lamborghini emblem on an Egyptian chariot, as to say we KNOW much of anything, but the concepts. Most of those fields suffer from engineering, political and social problems, some lack the balance of wisdom of other disciplines and that is just critique on a minutes consideration.
We fall far from proofs needed to know how these things will help, hurt, enlighten or obfuscate progress. In most cases, just because we can doesnt mean we should,not just morally either; are we only barking up a similar tree to the answers we seek and are we wasting our time overcoming more problems than should come as a more straightforward answer?
It is important to separate the four states, to think, to feel , to know and to believe, especially in light of the majority who use them interchangeably and bias their thinking (poor self programming),in doing so.
In the complexity of what is; our knowledge of the vastness around us is the ratio of thoughts we have about it to the number of atoms in existence.
