Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina Considering US Presidential Run

jd2112 Re:Can Iowa handle a circus that large? (418 comments)

If the democrats actually picked Biden I might even consider voting Republican.

Biden might be the best choice. That is if the greatest threat to America was insomnia.

Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina Considering US Presidential Run

jd2112 Re:Won't happen (418 comments)

She's a second rate, female Mitt Romney with the business acumen of George W. Bush. She'll get into the primaries, get ripped to shreds and probably run off crying about sexism because her track record will make the Republican base convulse at even thought of her winning the nomination.

That's an insult to second rate female Mitt Romneys and GW Bushes.
I would love to see her in a debate with Hillary Clinton. I can't stand Hillary but I would be sitting with a bowl of popcorn enjoying ever minute watching her rip Carly to shreds. She would probably still complain about sexism though.

But - he did it on a computer. That's special. And I'll bet the computer was connected to the Internet. That's even more special.

Up next - they'll get a Facebook page.

On a mobile device. Soon to be connected to 'The Internet of things'.

Yes. I bought a set of Michellins and they were good for about 60,000 miles but the cheaper brand only lasted for 40,000.

In this year's US mid-term elections ...

jd2112 Re:No politicians! Anarchy for all! (551 comments)

There are only two parties. Get over it. You're fucked.

The libertarians can't win. The Greens can't win. The independents can't win. If we got rid of the Democrats and the Republicans, I we all know who'd win the next election: The Democrats and the Republicans.

There is only one party. Other than the so-called 'wedge issues' that generally don't generally have much effect on most people's daily lives other than to distract from the real issues there isn't much difference between the two. I'm not voting because there aren't any viable third party candidates and I can't bring myself to vote for any of the candidates of either Team Red or Team Blue of the farce of a two-party system.

I always thought that the greatest argument in favour of intelligent life existing in the universe is that none have tried to contract us.

Secretive Funding Fuels Ongoing Net Neutrality Astroturfing Controversy

jd2112 Re:The saddest part is..... (56 comments)

There are lots of people that genuinely oppose big government, but nobody likes Comcast. If given a choice, the people would prevent Comcast from having fast lanes, and unleash the rancor and krakken upon them simultaneously.

This is part of the problem of the Net Neutrality debate. There are no 'Fast lanes'. There is only what we have now and pothole-ridden dirt roads.

Windows 0-Day Exploited In Ongoing Attacks

jd2112 Re: Only for root users (114 comments)

Some do, however I've seen a few that are incapable of finding their head let alone placing a hat on it. Generally these are still stuck developing on VB6 rather than the vastly improved .NET versions (and are still whining about it after all these years...)
