Ferguson Seen As Reverend Al Sharpton's Racism Industrial Complex Checking In

fustakrakich Ah yoo too (1 comments)

Blaming the tools.. when the workaround is so trivial that you can't be arsed, right?

I'm sorry... What is Sharpton's great 'sin'? Successfully exploiting basic instincts for a buck? Really, what's the big deal? I thought you were pro capitalism or something.

fustakrakich Re: Corporations (8 comments)

Sorry, your entire argument is bogus. If money doesn't influence me, why should it influence you or anybody else? You vote for the people you like. Pay no attention to the people trying to influence them with their damn money, no matter where they come from. It is totally irrelevant. Just watch who takes it. They are the traitors. And if you vote for them, then you are too..

Hacker Threatened With 44 Felony Charges Escapes With Misdemeanor

fustakrakich Re:He still plead guilty to something ... (171 comments)

You gotta elect people who will rewrite the law. Or you can call a constitutional convention. Either way, it's pretty straight up. If you vote for garbage, don't complain when you get garbage, and especially when you all reuse the same garbage for 20-30 years in some cases. And please, save me all the bullshit about money. Just tune it out.

Now, since we are dealing with a vast majority(98% at present) who will dance to anything, maybe it's time to consider alternatives to majority rule. Some sort of lottery system that would make political campaigns and party affiliations obsolete, and put an end to the career in public service. Everybody over 35 or 40 is subject to being conscripted in. Give them some time to experience life first. Make it like the military, do your three years, and then GTFO, with a small severance, of say six months pay, which would also be reduced to a less obscene level.. You'll still get the occasional Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, Pelosi, and Cruz, but they won't have the powerful financial alliances and the time to cause any irreparable damage. Regardless of what system you use, if you don't apply proper oversight, you are farting into the wind..

New Snowden Docs Show GCHQ Paid Telcos For Cable Taps

What, should they be paid in bananas? I mean, what's the problem? If I'm going through the effort to help them tap into my line, I would want to be compensated also. Seems only fair.

And to all those people out there complaining about the government, and then turning around and reelecting the sons of bitches, I don't have any family safe words to say. I believe the proper British phrase is, Piss off!

Two Google Engineers Say Renewables Can't Cure Climate Change

fustakrakich Re:It boils down to energy storage costs (618 comments)

Remember that there's human costs tied up in generating the power in the first place - both capital in creating the equipment to do so*, and the maintenance required to keep it generating.

*sigh* --- I measure 'efficiency' by the amount of human effort it takes to run the machine. So, if the process can be automated and low maintenance....

You didn't see that part, did you? If we make machines that can make their own batteries from raw materials, why should I care how long the batteries last? That is a problem for the machine to deal with.

I mean, since Bush did such a good job of softening you up for the attack and you kept on voting for more of the same.You know you want it, so then you can complain about it only because the democrats did it.

Bacteria and global warming

fustakrakich fustakrakich writes  |  about 2 years ago

fustakrakich (1673220) writes "Like we do, most bacteria respire, that is they convert carbon containing compounds, into carbon dioxide and water, and as an outcome of this process generate cellular energy. Unfortunately, for us there are far more bacteria on the planet that there are people and as a consequence bacteria produce rather a lot of carbon dioxide. In fact the microbes that break down plant matter in soil release 55 billion tons of carbon dioxide a year into the atmosphere, which represents around eight times the amount that humans are putting into the atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels. As the temperature of our planet increases, we will inevitably alter the activity of planet’s microbes and through this fundamentally their impact on the Earth’s climate"

Good News on the Free Speech Front

fustakrakich fustakrakich writes  |  about 2 years ago

fustakrakich (1673220) writes "Supreme Court blocks Illinois law prohibiting taping of police:

The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a plea from the Cook County state's attorney to allow enforcement of a law prohibiting people from recording police officers on the job.

The justices on Monday left in place a lower court ruling that found that the state's anti-eavesdropping law violates free speech rights when used against people who tape law enforcement officers...

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit in 2010 against State's Attorney Anita Alvarez to block prosecution of ACLU staff for recording police officers performing their duties in public places, one of the group's long-standing monitoring missions."

David Cameron 'orders new curbs on internet porn'

The new measures will mean that in future anyone buying a new computer or signing up with a new internet service provider (ISP) will be asked, when they log on for the first time, whether they have children. If the answer is "yes", the parent will be taken through the process of installing anti-pornography filters, as well as a series of questions on how stringent they wish the restrictions to be, according to a newspaper.

If the answer is "no", all male customers over 18 will be immediately tagged as pedophiles."

The republican majority benfits the democratic party*

fustakrakich fustakrakich writes  |  about two weeks ago

*how I learned to love electronic voting...

Before, I used to believe the ACA was a crime of opportunity. With the democrat majority in both houses, the republicans could get their insurance bill passed without having to put up a single vote. Smell that flowery aroma surrounding them? Yeah, it worked perfectly, and still is. The show has been one hell of a diversion. Millions of people like Smith and pudge are still believers in the gag. Okay, old story, on to new business...

So, now we have a different dilemma, and a bit of role reversal. The democrats (and republicans) want to get this Keystone and TPP and various other ripoffs out of the way before they can attract too much more attention, before 2016 if possible. But there's a problem. The democrats are the fluffy bunny party, and they held the majority in the Senate. They can't sign off on a deal to have containers of fluffy bunnies shipped from China to be soaked in tar in Canada and shot through a tube to Houston to be put on a boat to Belgium to make chocolate confectioneries in time for Easter.. So... What to do.... I know! With the votes too close to call and these new contraptions they're using to tally the count, it will be trivial to nudge the table without tilting the machine. Voila! You tagged your partner into the ring. Majority to republicans, the bills cruise on through, and as the president signs them, the democrats can blame the new republican majority for being environmental nazis/slaves of the telecoms, keeping the vote evenly divided for the '16 race, everybody's happy.

I have become more convinced than ever that consent is indeed being manufactured through this type of fraud. To be able to keep independents out of congress so completely and effectively takes some serious bullshit. It is too bad everyone is too stark struck by celebrity politics to look into it.

The perfect crime

When you can keep elections so perfectly divided down the middle, it is very easy to 'miscount' the vote to produce a desired result without anybody noticing.

Dumbass Democrats Deserve Defeat

fustakrakich fustakrakich writes  |  about three weeks ago

This is what you get for electing such dorks... But heeyyyy, no problemo, in 10 or 12 years 50.1% will be pissed at the republicans again... for another 6 or 8... and then, like the end of Daylight Savings Time, we set the clocks back (Shut up! I'm just having a bit of partisan fun, you silly bitch!)

To any of you who still doubt the success of Bernays' work, well, all I can say is, PFFFFT! Not a single independent in the house... Public relations is some powerful shit on the individual who surrenders to the collective, which apparently, 99% of them do. It produces election results, and, it produces radical fanatics financed by the war machine. Through all of you it produces heaven and hell, god and satan. It's all spelled out. We know why, but we still have no lasting antidote, only the bourgeois(UGH!) 'revolution'. And what would the 'antidote' be to one of nature's more basic survival instincts of staying with the herd anyway? Better ice cream, perhaps? That always seems to work. Something like *a new hat*... Since breaking up the herd isn't an option, all that's left is to try to steer it. But fuck that. The better option is to sell the ranch and move to the tropics, and politely ask that you stay off my lawn. No, actually you are welcome, just have the courtesy to remove the clip and empty the chamber.

On the spectator side, if you're a betting man, Jeb just might pay off (yeah, republicans are morons also, but if they win, who cares? A good poker face can up the payoffs), especially if the dems are actually stupid enough to put up Ms. Hillary, which I really doubt right now, but, as dumb as they are, you never know. We do know that both sides have to be careful not to let things get too lopsided one way or the other. As the cliche goes, the object is not to win, but not to lose, and to keep the game going.
