Senator Who Calls STEM Shortage a Hoax Appointed To Head Immigration

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:No way! (506 comments)

oh, they BILL exactly the same amount. As in, the company their working for still charges the same amount as if they had American workers. They just get to pay the H1B's far less, so it's more profit for the contracting company itself.

Barrett Brown, Formerly of Anonymous, Sentenced To 63 Months

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:who is he? (Al Capone the tax evader) (109 comments)

the charges he's going down for are from his threats to law enforcement and their families, not even the hacking.

Barrett Brown, Formerly of Anonymous, Sentenced To 63 Months

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:You can't trust any hacking charges now (109 comments)

I don't feel he is an "anti-US" person...seems like a "pro-US" for wanting to expose the military industrial complex...but wanting these freedoms is enough to get that label these days. With our laws we would have locked up Paul Revere, John Adams, and the whole lot of them. Per the US PATRIOT Act all the "forefathers" of the US would be considered criminals and / or terrorists. If the US / UK independence was modern-day it would never have been able to get off the ground.

US Senate Set To Vote On Whether Climate Change Is a Hoax

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:They already have (661 comments)

No, because all that needs is for God to show Himself in public. That's probably outside of humanities capabilities to force to happen, but really that's all that's needed.

US Senate Set To Vote On Whether Climate Change Is a Hoax

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:They already have (661 comments)

The rate slowed because the ocean is a giant heat sink. That's one reason the sea is rising...hotter water takes up more space. Eventually the ocean won't be able to store any more extra heat. Not that any of us will probably see that point; the oceans will be too hot to sustain the amount of life it currently does and much of the population will starve from that and other massive climate disasters.

US Senate Set To Vote On Whether Climate Change Is a Hoax

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:More proof (661 comments)

I feel that neither position is really useful. With Siberia melting, unless your currently building an air-tight dome no amount of carbon curbing with affect the gigatons of methane that is starting to leak back out. It may be too late already.

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:More proof (661 comments)

once the current Siberian melting picks up and dumps tons of methane back into the atmosphere it will affect everything on the planet. Seeing the giant holes opening up there right now, it may already be to late to turn the clock back. All of this bickering may be for naught...

Maybe it's just /.'s "time of the month" and their all hormonal and "female"-ish now, or got girl cootees all over them. /sarcasm. Their just doing what all other "news" outlets do, stirring a pot to get views.

That's what Saudi Arabia did; "export" the extreme views so those people will be too busy fighting elsewhere and not them.

"never get into a war that I did not intend to win" I'm not aware of too many countries that purposely engage in wars they intend to loose.

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Prepare for more (257 comments)

I agree...it really was Stalin turning on them that did it. Even though the a-bomb was impressive, Japan had 30-50 similar "city leveling attacks" on them per day at that point.

We tried that here with the whole Stingray thing. Even though we now know about that tech, it still doesn't help anyone gain any "respect" towards law enforcement. If anything it makes them more untrustworthy as it had to be practicably beaten out of them.

Obama Planning New Rules For Oil and Gas Industry's Methane Emissions

l0n3s0m3phr34k Executive action (202 comments)

I can't blame Obama, with someone like Inhofe being put in charge of the EPA. There is no other way, as Inhofe is pretty much a Koch brothers paid Oil Industry employee who wants to staff the EPA with oil industry execs. Inhofe thinks the whole idea of anything humans can do affecting the Earth is bunk, because the Bible says so. When your faced with someone who feels nothing bad can happen because some ancient myth says so AND they are in a power position, what other choices are there?

Lawrence Krauss On Scientists As Celebrities: Good For Science?

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:It's not about the presenter. (227 comments)

Like Mike Huckabee promoting a "hidden Biblical cure" for cancer? This is anoher reason we need TYSON / NYE 2016, I'm sick and tired of living under some invisible sky-god that only talks to people that seem to really just hate, kill, want to control everything, and firmly believe they can legislate over biology.

Patrick Stewart and Morgan Freeman also rock as narrators for documentaries too, although Attenborough is probably the TOP of the list. I search torrents by his name all the time!

Lawrence Krauss On Scientists As Celebrities: Good For Science?

l0n3s0m3phr34k Tyson's TV skills (227 comments)

I watched an older show with Neil, he definitely has either had some coaching or something as he was almost as bad as W Bush in the first episode. It was some other science show on Netflix, and his ability to read the teleprompter was horrid. LOL just like a professor's first big class or recording. Luckily he has gotten 1000x better with it all, and now is just as good of a speaker as he is a scientist.

TYSON / NYE 2016! Bring science to the Whitehouse! Write them in, save humanity from itself and superstition!

Obama "expects" FCC to rule for one-lane Net Neutrality

l0n3s0m3phr34k l0n3s0m3phr34k writes  |  about 4 months ago

l0n3s0m3phr34k (2613107) writes "Obama said he opposes paid prioritization of Internet service, and has told Tom Wheeler so. He continued: "My appointee, [FCC Chairman] Tom Wheeler, knows my position. I can't now, that he's there, I can't just call him up and tell him exactly what to do. But what I've been clear about, what the White House has been clear about is that we expect whatever final rules to emerge to make sure that we're not creating two or three or four tiers of Internet. That ends up being a big priority of mine.""
