Bradley Manning's Court Date Finally Set

kdsible In a country (523 comments)

Where a President (no names mentioned bush) can start a war on lies but convicts its own for exposing the truth; banks steal your life savings yet none of the bankers have been declared an enemy of the state. Can there or is there justice for manning? I find it hard to believe there will be. It seems everything is terrorism now its just the angle the gov needs to do what they want. If George can go free manning should also go free; manning did not kill anyone, unfortunately the same cannot be said of George.

San Francisco Considers Ban On All Pet Sales

kdsible Pets are better off in you home. (733 comments)

For starters that is just the most stupid thing i have ever heard because "SAYS WHO" is not from an animal perspective. The activists exists because - Its that dumbasses who shouldn't be allowed to breed have a pet and think its a person. Case and point. The fool in the building next to me who thinks its OK to have a full grown great dane (that's a dog) in a 1 bedroom unit. Unfortunately, most people are not selfless when it comes to pets then again its not the pets happiness that is being bought. I extend this to the throwaway society that exists. So you buy it now it has outgrown you OR your lifestyle has changed. Well, give it away or let it go back into gods country. Whats wrong with that - you mean its not part of the family? Ask why Florida has a snake issue....ha ha. As for Descartes mixing Science and religion, idiotic, nonsense violence. The need for a pet has NOTHING to do with providing a home for an animal. Outlaw all of it and legalize weed for gods sake.

Hackers To School Next Generation At DEFCON Kids

kdsible Early learning support (86 comments)

I am all for early learning especially in today's economy and the one to come. It will only be to a kids advantage. As for can kids make the decision between right and wrong? For some yes for some no. Can adults make the decision between right or wrong. Given the past economic crisis, fighting blood for oil wars you be the judge!! Point is the choice you make has everything to do with upbringing, environment and the friends you keep. LEARN so you can EARN. kd.

Politics: Paul-Barney Bill Would Legalize Marijuana Federally

kdsible Coocoo for coco puffs (688 comments)

- Legalize Marijuana Federally the beer and liquor Industry who control the "get high legally" market will do everything in their power to prevent this from happening if not already. Hide your babies and daughters people using marijuana can't be controlled. Ok maybe not your daughters cuz they probably already smoke it.

Need a Receipt On Taxes? The Federal Tax Receipt

kdsible Re:Tax Break-up (642 comments)

hummmm...sane or have to also ask WHO funds a war. lets also not forget to ask the question WHY......its not that cut and dry. I suppose if you are going to have a mighty military machine you need to use it to recoup the costs. As for Libya would it not have been cheaper to just let them have their civil war? I see a cost savings there. Selling them arms could be profitable as well.

Capitalism is just not economy friendly its about best interests. That's my line and i am sticking to it.

China Calls Out US On Internet Freedom

kdsible Re:Hah! (338 comments)

There is no nonreckless way that he could have gone about it-consider the machine that he is up against! Its either you agree or you don't. War crimes are war crimes either you sell em out or you don't. The question that remains is what pushed him to do what he did? i'm waiting for the movie.

Scientists Aim To Improve Photosynthesis

kdsible Why are people always trying to screw nature (156 comments)

Nature is perfect as it stands without anyone's help. When humans try to improve things we end up with mad cow, killer bees, cancer this cancer that. Is it really worth making another dollar?
Society needs to become more efficient is what needs to happen. What happens to the food no one buys from the market, restaurant, or unharvested fields? Goes into the garbage thats where!!! There will never be enough because we are a throw-away-society period. Its bred into us from day one.

kdsible Re:So... (375 comments)

Thats not so far fetched MS. Windows has come a long way, OSX has definitely influenced MS design.

I think Wowsers meant "folder" not files. The stupid things i hate are hiding RUN and Network. I suppose they are trying to move towards a smoother presentation.

Bashing MS 'Like Kicking a Puppy,' Says Jim Zemlin

kdsible Useless post (648 comments)

Funny how people like to choose sides when it comes to Linux/M$. Wondering how many people understand that they are so far away from the actual decision makers that the decision makers don't actually care about the battle. Why? Any day you could read in the headlines that MS is in bed with Google or Redhat when the loss of business or the opportunity to make revenue is at steak.

---- this shit matters only to the end user but can u stop it? You actually think the big exec's care think again. If the technology works for you run with it.

----getting tired of these useless topics!!

The Case Against GUIs, Revisited

kdsible Fools Errand to debate (720 comments)

There is no debate here. The CLi is good at some things and the GUI for others. They both serve valid purposes. I love and hate both at times. --the religious capitalist "send me $50 to be saved"

China To Overtake US In Science In Two Years

kdsible And this matters to who? (362 comments)

What exactly should the U.S. be worried about? I fail to see the fear mongering. China is getting more powerful.......Blab blah....its' been in the news for months. The communist's are coming...we need to increase the military/Science budget by another 50 billion or we risk being overtaken. Good grief already.
