Republican Bill Aims To Thwart the FCC's Leaning Towards Title II

meglon Re:Glad were stopping the evil socialists (182 comments)

Ah, so your problem is you're just a stupid fucking prick. Got it. Let me guess... you're a "libertarian," one of those too embarrassed to admit they voted for Bush... twice.

Points moot, and obviously over your head. You made stupid fucking assumptions about people, and tried to distract from the problem being discussed. You ARE part of the problem. on top of being a childish fucking idiot.

Republican Bill Aims To Thwart the FCC's Leaning Towards Title II

meglon Re:Glad were stopping the evil socialists (182 comments)

Well, he quite clearly has his political head up his ass... as well as being a fucking idiot for making assumptions about people. His fucked in the head type thinking is why this country has so many problems, and his attempts to distract from the problems by making stupid fucking comments and stupid fucking assumptions about people he doesn't know aren't part of the solution, they're part of the problem.

The politician in question, if he was 47 years old, probably shouldn't be hanging around with 17 year olds in the first place; but saying that people must agree with his actions BECAUSE he's a democrat means that the poster agrees with Republican Party leader Bobby Stumbo raping a 5 year old boy BECAUSE Stumbo and the poster are both republicans.... it's twisted, stupid as fuck thinking.

meglon Re:Glad were stopping the evil socialists (182 comments)

Are you seriously so fucking stupid you think the guy slept with a 17yold BECAUSE he's a democrat? The problem is that because of tribal identity, and complete fucking ignorance, the republican for the last three plus decades have been pulling this country farther and farther to the radical fascist right. This is simply another attempt to rig the system against the people, and let corporations leech more money out of the population. Then we have stupid fucking idiots like you who keep trying to shift attention away from what's going on so YOUR "tribe" never has to take responsibility for anything they do.

This isn't about some totally disconnected fucking idiocy you want to weave around to distract people... it's about peoples basic rights to information thats not censored and fabricated by the few with enough resources to control them. Pull your head out of your ass for once in your life.

But, if you want to talk about pedophiles and sexual criminals in office, fine, here yah go:

An Open Letter To Everyone Tricked Into Fearing AI

meglon Really? (227 comments)

Objectively looking at it, we're not in immediate danger of AI, nor are we in danger of willfully ignorant, bombastic journalists. What we are in danger of is the same thing we've been in danger of for a very long time.... intentionally ignorant people who believe everything they're told and then making incredibly stupid decisions that effect lots of other people in a negative way, AND greedy, self serving sociopaths willing to exploit those intentionally ignorant people to gain power or money. The odds of one of that latter group using advanced computing systems to wreak havoc within society is much greater than AI becoming sentient and deciding (rightfully so) humanity is a bane to the existence of pretty much everything else on the planet.

The problem is, you have to go through that "advanced computing" stage of development before getting to AI.... that, and there seems to be a plethora of greedy self serving sociopaths running around these days, and more popping up every day.

Scientist Says Potential Signs of Ancient Life in Mars Rover Photos

meglon Re: No coverup (142 comments)

Personally, i think you picked a bad week to stop sniffing glue.... your DT's are showing up.

You're making assumptions, stating your opinion as fact, and basically wildly hyperboling (yes, i made it up... i think) all over the place....except you seem to want to take yourself seriously. That is a bad combination. My suggestion is less caffeine and more reading real science books... starting with one that start with explaining the ins and outs of scientific principle, and how to stick to it.
Or... you could write all that up and send to the Sci-Fi channel and they might make a movie on it... can't be worse that the crap they churn out now.

Not everything that doesn't agree with "your opinion" is a conspiracy.

It's not that NASA is covering up the proof of life they've found on Mars, it's just that they're trying to figure out who this Kilroy guy was before publishing the report.

Actually, those on the left keep saying that government shouldn't be used to FORCE integration if the individuals don't want to integrate... you know, that whole PERSONAL FREEDOM thing.... while the conservatives on the right are all about using government to abuse the rights of individuals, especially of anyone different than them.

meglon Re:islam (1350 comments)

I'd say no.

In Egypt, we supported and kept in power someone not supported by a lot of people..... that ruffles peoples feathers (an amazingly simply fact a lot of people still don't seem to understand). He was more benevolent than say the Shah if Iran, but he was still strong armed in.

In, Iran Mosaddegh was democratically elected in the real sense of the word, and the country at the time was very pro-western. Khomeini played on the fact that the Shah was a brutal dictator who had killed tens of thousands of people with his secret police death squads. Their outrage at the US, of course, was that we were the ones that fucked them over in 1953, and directly lead to all those people being murdered.

Gunmen Kill 12, Wound 7 At French Magazine HQ

meglon Re:Maybe (1350 comments)

Yahweh, Allah, God.... all the same, different languages. Judaism has lots of prophets, but Jesus ain't the messiah; Christianity ignores most of the prophets (although Catholicism has so, so , so many saints), and Jesus is their messiah; Islam has lots of prophets, Jesus and Mohammed being two of them.

I've always found it fascinating that Christians in the US, who supposedly are all about Jesus, blindly support Judaism which says point blank: Jesus wasn't the messiah, yet they are so vocally opposed to Islam which says that Jesus was a prophet of God.

I chalk it down to ignorance, stupidity... or both.

meglon Re:In the name of Allah ! (1350 comments)

Not that you made any such claim, but those are all Old Testament scriptures, thus for Christians they have been overridden by the teachings of Jesus Christ. None of those apply to Christianity, which makes sense, as you don't see Christians running around trying to enforce anything of the sort.

You don't see it because you aren't looking. As for the whole "old testament" thing, I've suggested to some anti-gay bigots that we should be out stoning to death people who touch leather, work on Saturday, eat shellfish and such, and they use that (completely fucking stupid) line "but that's in the old testament, and we don't follow that anymore" only to turn around and use the command in Leviticus to support their anti-gay bigotry.

THE problem is, there's too many idiots who only listen to what their preacher says, and can't seem to find time to actually read the Bible. That's why their version of "God" seems to hate exactly who they hate. The other problem is, religious people ignoring the plank in their own eye, while thinking their shit don't stink and throwing stones at other people.... which is EXACTLY the problem with a lot of posters in the thread.

meglon Re:islam (1350 comments)

.... and as we saw during the great depression, a significant percentage of elderly people would be dying in the street in poverty because a capitalistic society cares about profit, and nothing else. There's a number of things Marx wrote about that, while fervent fascists dismiss them as ridiculous, we can actually see them in society. Its like these complete idiots still suggesting that their trickle-down voodoo bullshit economics "should" works, when all we have to do is look at the last 30+ years to see not only it's an abject failure, but it creates far more problems than it was supposed to solve.

Has anyone mentioned you have your head up your ass? You can TRY to redefine a word, but you just look stupider than fuck trying to defend that. If you're too stupid to use a word correctly, or don't know a words meaning to start with... buy a fucking dictionary. Quit trying to make the people around you be as fucking stupid as you are. I also suggest you try learning some history, as you don't seem to have a fucking clue there either.

Air Force Space Fence Being Shut Down

meglon meglon writes  |  about a year and a half ago

meglon (1001833) writes "NASA will no longer have real time information on tracking orbital debris if the order of Gen. William Shelton, commander of Air Force Space Command, is carried out. The Space Fence, the only monitoring system of it's kind, will cease function on October 1st. Start saying goodby to all your favorite telecommunication and GPS satellites now."

Solar Stormwatch crowdsourcing

meglon meglon writes  |  more than 4 years ago

meglon (1001833) writes "News flash on the sun: It's Hot!

The fine folks at Galaxy Zoo have just launched another mission oriented site at http://solarstormwatch.com/

Solar Stormwatch will use volunteers to spot and track solar storms and ejecta, with hopes of understanding them a bit better, and possibly mitigating some of the potential damage from them on us poor earthlings. Perusing feeds from collected from NASA's STEREO spacecrafts, you can also happen upon comets (which is pretty cool). The interface is nice and clean, and while the video's are somewhat limited in scope, but it's a worthwhile project that could potentially save a few lives, and you never know, maybe they'll name a comet after you (if you find one before anyone else)."
