Satellite Images Show Russians Shelling Ukraine

hackus Its the banks stupid. (536 comments)

First of all, someone doesn't like what is going on in the Far East.

They don't like the Oil pipelines selling oil not in dollars.

They don't like the elected leaders so they over throw them, and the whole thing is so corrupt, they don't even try and hide the fact anymore and use communications wide out in the open for people to record and play back of their corruption.

I am suppose to believe, that a country which beat Napoleon, Hitler and has state of the art military gear easily matching anything the United States or the West has, can't figure out what a passenger airliner looks like and decides to blow it up for some sort of secret gain?

Of course, while all of this is going on it is I am sure JUST A COINCIDENCE, that the make and model of the airliner shot down is the exact same kind of air plane, from the same place one of the same make and model, freakin same country of origin and even the SAME FREAKING AIRPORT, matches the one that disappeared a few months ago "somewhere over the pacific".

In case you people haven't figured this out yet, this is about the dollar. As in, since 2007 the corruption is so EPIC in our banking industry, they are robbing anything that is not nailed down to cover the loses of this looting since, well, nobody was prosecuted.

So, the same crooks keep robbing the financial system, over and over and over and over. As a result the debts get bigger and bigger and bigger.

They basically need to loot Iran, and Syria since they already looted Iraq and want that gas and oil next to Russia.

Even Biden's kid was installed to insure the Oil stays in the family so to speak. Yeah, I can just see how happy a Ukraine citizen is going to be when it is so obvious our government is looting their country for Oil and Gas, going so far as to put kids of our crony government/Federal Reserve reps in charge to insure the looting goes according to plan.

All of it is funded by the Federal Reserve and its crony Wall Street puppet banks.

You know, Russia isn't a goat herding outback country like Iran. You fuck with these people and you are going to wake up with a few cities missing.

Russia will not bend its knee to Napolean, Hitler and especially not a bunch of fucking banker wank jobs from New York.


Linus Torvalds: "GCC 4.9.0 Seems To Be Terminally Broken"

hackus Re:Linux, a miracle (670 comments)

The reason why LINUX is as good as it is, because people who are involved with LINUX are passionate about great software. The reason why LINUX attracts people who are passionate about good software and world class engineering is because you can actually do something about these sorts of errors.

With proprietary software like Windows, that passion is crushed because you can never ever fix these sorts of things, without going to jail in the f*cking fascist corporate state.

Tolerance is lower, because YOU as a software developer have EPIC amounts of control over the software stack. You are suppose to test these things before deployment. On Windows or some other piece of shit operating system with no source code this sort of thing is tolerated much more frequently because you do not have that level of control and more importantly: Defects in proprietary software are thought of as a REVENUE STREAM, not as a PIECE OF SHIT SOFTWARE.


Hence Windows shit, vs LINUX EPIC engineering.

That EPIC engineering runs the fastest machines, the largest computers, the smallest computers do you know why?


I figure Windows shit owes me like 5 years of sleep as a IT Monkey going on 25 years in the industry. I always think, why didn't someone yell at the guy like LINUS who wrote this shit, to fix it?

Keep yelling LINUS!!

Rupert Murdoch's Quest To Buy Time Warner: Not Done Yet

hackus Justice Liberty and Freedom (63 comments)

Mention any in the presence of Murdoch and his ilk will get you classified as a terrorist and likely SWAT'ed.

Well, either that or you could be driving your car and inexplicably jit a tree ay a very VERY high speed and wonder, "That is odd, where did that tree come from?"

Interviews: Ask Dr. Andy Chun About Artificial Intelligence

hackus Machine vs Artifical Intelligence (69 comments)

What do you think is easier to solve?

Artificial Intelligence or the idea of mimicking natural physical systems to process information?


Machine Intelligence or the idea of creating systems that do not use natural systems but investigate wholly new ideas of machine design to process information?

Apple Refutes Report On iPhone Threat To China's National Security

hackus Someone is lying. (134 comments)

Snowden reveal something curious about Apple gear.

Curious in that Apple iPhone was the only piece of gear that could be relied upon to be cracked. Any model.

That strongly suggests cooperation with intelligence agencies in the west.

If I was China I would ban western products.

30% of Americans Aren't Ready For the Next Generation of Technology

hackus Re:Funny (191 comments)

I would like to add that the people who I will describe as the old guard, who brought up the internet have a generally different point of view on the topic of advanced technology. For example, none of us use social networking, either for professional contacts, customers or even general communication.

Ideas like Facebook, and LinkedIn are something akin to nosey email. Further more we in the old guard as it were see it for what it really is, just a way to sell your information and ripping you off, for really not so good reasons.

Now if I could charge everyone too look at my kitty pictures on Facebook, along with my personal information, that would be different! Hell I would even give zuckerberg, NSA and god knows who else a cut.

But they do not even do that. So why even bother.

That Toy Is Now a Drone

hackus Laws for you.. (268 comments)

NOT for them.

This increasingly narrowed view of the powers that be is overall a very very disturbing trend I have been watching since the 2007 financial crisis.

These bankers are funding every single war on the planet in order to save the currency, while printing gigantic wads of cash for the militarization of the police, and every single government agency. Billions of bullets purchased for social security administration, EPA...etc.

Now they slip a little money to the court system and insure YOU cannot have any sort of drone that provides FPS.

I doubt that is a coincidence.

NOAA: Earth Smashed A Record For Heat In May 2014, Effects To Worsen

hackus NOAA Findings (547 comments)

So what?

Whether you believe the alarmists like Al Gore telling every one you need to live in a card board box, for the sake of his elitist friends and pay all of your income in carbon taxes, or the outright liars who claim Humans have zero affects on climate change:

One thing is for certain, postulation about whether or not it is actually a bad thing to have the earth warmer or colder isn't something either side seems to acknowledge because obviously the earth during the last 250,000 years of human existence has been way hotter and way colder than it is now.

Further more, I am more worried about plans to INTENTIONALLY overload the biosphere with idots thinking a complex multi billion year old planetary biosphere is as simplistic as what they create in the lab and draw conclusions on.

I mean crazy bat shit conclusions like spraying the atmosphere with aerosols or sucking the CO2 out of the atmosphere on purpose.

THAT is what scares me, not global warming or cooling or whatever you believe.

US Government Introduces Pollinator Action Plan To Save Honey Bees

hackus Save the Honey Bees (143 comments)

Yeah, introduce foreign proteins and compounds into food crops and then wonder why dozens of birds, honey bees and other animals are on huge declines.

I got an idea, put Monsanto and all these other GMO "I wanna rule the worlds food production" companies and make THEM PAY to restore the honey bees, birds and other species they destroy through pollution of destructive genetic engineering of our biosphere.

US House of Representatives Votes To Cut Funding To NSA

hackus NSA Budget (164 comments)

The majority of the NSA budget does not come from the GAO/Congress.

We are way beyond that point by decades. Most of the money comes from Blackmail, Industrial Espionage and drug operations.
(One of the reasons for the seemingly senseless and harsh drug laws is these people really hate competition.)

The NSA and CIA are rogue criminal operations and should be torn down until we repair our governmental authorities with respect to the constitution.

We no longer live in a constitutional republic and are fast approaching the end game.

'Selfie' Helps Doctors Diagnose Mini-Stroke

hackus Re:Among the consequences (47 comments)

On the other hand, when government and fascist corporatist attiudes prevail in society, only the elite qualify for immediate MRI exams.

"Oh, Mr. Bankster, you said you have a slight pain last week? Lets do a complete work up and MRI."

The rest of you are having an "its all in your head", take an aspirin, come back when the bill is much cheaper to put you in the ground than give you a MRI.

Google and Microsoft Plan Kill Switches On Smartphones

hackus People are Stupid (137 comments)

Having government institutions with control over something as private as a cell phone is not a good idea.

This idea that government will make you safe, as long as you have no rights seems to be on the menu of the times we live in.

It will end up serving the same ole dish:

Death, misery and more chaos.

Bye bye Human Race, was really nice knowing you, don't forget to write about it in the fossil record.

After Non-Profit Application Furor, IRS Says It's Lost 2 Years Of Lerner's Email

hackus IRS Audit... (372 comments)

and explain to them what happened during the time you "lost" two years of records once and see what happens.

Lawlessness, Usurpers and Destroyers.

If there is any justice in this Universe the IRS and its minions will be utterly destroyed, hopefully before they destroy EVERYTHING.

Aliens and the Fermi Paradox

hackus Re:Progenitors? (686 comments)

Much more likely is we are unique.

Trillions of species have evolved and only one developed intelligence.

It may not be a question of time, but one of very very bad odds.

The other issue is, intelligence doesn't seem to fit anywhere on the Darwin side of things. I mean, few species have intelligence, and the most successful species so far I would say hands down is the dino's, and they were awful at it.

What is even more frightening: Read the news lately?

It would seem a group of bankers are hell bent on thinking they can treat Russia and China like Libya, Egypt, Mali, Iraq.

Nuclear War anyone?
