Obama's Immigration Order To Give Tech Industry Some, Leave 'Em Wanting More

meglon Re:I bet Infosys and Tata are dancing in the stree (172 comments)

Sorry, being my age i heard the same stupid fucking crap from the same stupid fucking people back when Reagan gave amnesty to 7 million. Dipshit doomsayers like you just continue repeating the same fucking stupidity regardless of what actually happens, and you're too fucking stupid to look back and see reality. If you're going to complain about adding uneducated people to the workforce, perhaps you should go be an activist in Texas where the majority of high school students don't have the basic education to be able to get into a state college; or maybe Alabama where barely 70% of kids even graduate high school. I get it though, people like you just have to have someone else to blame for everything so you don't have to take that long hard look in the mirror to see how fucked up you are yourself.

When We Don't Like the Solution, We Deny the Problem

meglon Re:yep. Greenpeace founder says nuclear required (282 comments)

You mean this lying sack of shit preying on truly stupid fucking idiots? He's an industry shill looking to make money regardless of the outcome.

http://mediamatters.org/resear...

Patrick Moore frequently portrays himself as a founder or co-founder of Greenpeace, and many news outlets have repeated this characterization. Although Mr. Moore played a significant role in Greenpeace Canada for several years, he did not found Greenpeace. Phil Cotes, Irving Stowe, and Jim Bohlen founded Greenpeace in 1970. Patrick Moore applied for a berth on the Phyllis Cormack in March, 1971 after the organization had already been in existence for a year. A copy of his application letter and Greenpeace's response are available here (PDF). [Greenpeace, 12/7/10]

What's sad is there's so many complete fucking morons in this country who believe these lying sacks of shit who are just out to make a buck.

When We Don't Like the Solution, We Deny the Problem

meglon Re:I wish there was a more reasonable option (282 comments)

The FBI doesn't even distinguish this kind of crime in a separate category. I think more on point though, is the summaries author making the ASSUMPTION that having looser/fewer gun regulations somehow makes us safer, when evidence shows that states that have looser/fewer gun regulations also have higher murder rates ( http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/hi... ). Somewhere in there is another social science fuck-up on drawing the wrong conclusion to the study they made... perhaps somewhere along the line of something like... some people can deal with the evidence presented by reality, others can't, or don't want to.

Actually, anyone that knows anything about science wouldn't think a model is an absolute... only complete fucking idiots would make that incredibly stupid mistake, well, and kids that haven't gotten to the 4th grade yet.

Russia Takes Down Steve Jobs Memorial After Apple's Tim Cook Comes Out

meglon Re:Terrible (430 comments)

Sodomy does not mean anal sex. Sodomy refers what went down in Sodom.

...only to 2000 year old myth writers. Sodomy, defined both in common usage and legal usage means exactly that. Then again, if you actually read the story in the old testament, the angels get pissed when he offers up his virgin daughters to the crowd (female virginity being a HUGE thing back then) so they won't take the angels.

Reactions To Disgusting Images Predict a Persons Political Ideology

meglon Re:Strange how liberals (330 comments)

Strange how conservatives very actively want to take us back to the good old days of conservative dominance of WW2 Germany, Italy and Japan. I'd rather be a socialist worried about the welfare of people rather than a fascist worried about power and money at the expense of the people. I guess a good rule would be: don't put sociopaths in positions of power... obviously something you fascists haven't learned yet as that's exactly what you're still trying to do.

Boo! The House Majority PAC Is Watching You

meglon Re:Not New (468 comments)

What article? This is a self contained whine complaining that democrats are doing something that republicans do as well, from an "anonymous reader." Had this "anonymous reader" been an "anonymous writer," their post would have been started at 0, but as everyone knows, /. has a very vocal cadre of conservative fringe government haters who use negative modding to weed out anyone who speaks out against their shared delusion. It talks about liberal attempts because they're trying to lie through omission, and gin up outrage by ignoring the fact that republican groups do the exact same thing.

I don't know which is worse, the fact that these people expect their base to be so gullible that they can lie with impunity and never get caught, or the fact that on the rare occasion they are caught, their base simply doesn't give a shit they've been lied to as long as it fits their party politics.

Solar System's Water Is Older Than the Sun

meglon Re:Score one for the other team (173 comments)

There is no meaningful argument that will alter the completely, stupidly, fucked in the head position you've taken. We get it.. you're delusional, and don't have even a passing acquaintance with reality, but we're too tired of other fucked in the head people like you blathering on about the same stupid fucking shit while derailing every fucking thread.

The meaningful argument is: you're delusional, and there has never, ever, been a single shred of evidence, EVER, for the existence of a god or many gods. Until you pony up some of that, then you're specific "god" is of no more use or importance than someone elses' "god" even if it happens to be a 6 foot tall invisible rabbit who created the universe through farting.

Play your word games as much s you want... you still don't sound like anything other than "delusional."

Emails Cast Unflattering Light On Internal Politics of Healthcare.gov Rollout

meglon Re:Not surprising (392 comments)

Perhaps you should be looking in the mirror as you recite your post. The only people that can't see Issa is a full of shit partisan hack are the radically indoctrinated republicans who don't give a fuck about this country, just themselves.... everyone else see's his idiocy for what it is. The ONLY thing Issa has done is attempt to create scandals, just like Ggggnewt and his dickless wonders tried to do with Clinton. The downside (for republicans) is, Issa's so fucking stupid they keep blowing up in his face. Doesn't matter to the tried-and-true mental cases of the teabagger conspiracy base, but they're all fucked in the head anyway.

Emails Cast Unflattering Light On Internal Politics of Healthcare.gov Rollout

meglon Re:Not surprising (392 comments)

Actually you missed option #3: Just another bullshit partisan fuckwad who'd rather score political points for the GOP rather than do his fucking job.

Seriously, when you see people badmouth conservatives and the GOP... people like you are the reason. Whiny little asshats who can't govern, but throw tantrums like toddlers with the best of them. Issa is nothing more than a political twat. He doesn't give a flying fuck about this country, he just wants to be in power.... and fucking idiots elect him because he has an (R) behind his name, not because he's a good representative or even a decent person.

You can play your stupid fucking word games, and twist your spin however you want... but anyone with even a single brain cell left can see Issa and his bullshit are ONLY about politics.

Emails Cast Unflattering Light On Internal Politics of Healthcare.gov Rollout

meglon Not surprising (392 comments)

Not surprising at all. Darrell Issa has attempted to turn everything into some huge scandalous coverup purely for political gain. He's abused his office repeatedly by pushing investigations to discredit the administration, including leaking partial and misleading emails and reports along the way that he spins to show his partisan abuse is somehow legitimate, yet every time, with minimal investigation, he's shown to be taking things out of context and is intentionally trying to deceive the public. This is simply more of the same... a partisan hack attack using (and abusing) his office.

No one is surprised by this blatant abuse continues, yet those mental midgets who bought into all the rest of his lies and fake scandals will continue to. It's politics, and he's playing to his base.... nothing more than propaganda.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

meglon Re: No, no. Let's not go there. Please. (937 comments)

It only means that if you have your head buried too far up your ass to see what's going on in the world around you.

What i'm doing is correcting his misunderstanding of the reality of the subject. What you're doing is suggesting we (atheists) ignore people being beheaded, or doctors being killed, because the murderers just "don't agree with us." If that's the case, then please let me be the first to say: fuck you.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

meglon Re:Atheism offers no values - you have to add them (937 comments)

You're making the mistake of conflating "religion" and "value system." Those two things are NOT the same. Everyone has a value system, not everyone is religious. There are many religious people out there who do despicable things every day purely because they're not decent people to start with, and your God scaring them, or giving them the promise of heaven if they're good, isn't enough to break them of their nature.

As for the implication that Stalin and Mao acted the way they did because they were driven by some atheist agenda, you're a fucking idiot. Mao was an anti-imperialist, while Stalin went from being a Greek Orthodox priest in training to common criminal. Your implication is the same fucked in the head bullshit that "christians" who want to attempt to show they're superior to others (while being either stupid or liars) trot out quite often. The difference is, you didn't mention Hitler, which some of the more stupid try to suggest wasn't christian.

The atheistic perspective is: you claim there's a God.. prove it. If you can't even show a single shred of evidence (and there never ever has been a single shred of evidence), then you're nothing more than delusional, and believe in fairy tales. I would suggest that the value system of someone that is delusional is what should be in question.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

meglon Re: No, no. Let's not go there. Please. (937 comments)

It sounds like a religion to you because you don't have a basic understanding of what's being said, most likely because you are religious.

A religious person says: There is a God.

An atheist says: Prove it.

Until the religious person can prove it, or even show a shred of evidence for it, it's nothing more than some bullshit delusional fantasy.... which is exactly where religion has remained since it's inception by the human species.. in all forms. There has never, ever, in an instance, been a single shred of evidence for a God, or many Gods. Period.

I don't give a shit what a religious person believes, until they start forcing their delusion onto me or other people.. then, if they don't bring some evidence or proof, they're just some fucked in the head delusional asshat who should be heavily medicated in a rubber room somewhere.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

meglon Re:illogical captain (937 comments)

I would posit further than that by saying that a person who needs the carrot and stick approach that religion gives is morally weak to start with. A good person will do good; a bad person may do good if the carrot (heaven), or stick (hell), is strong enough to deter them from acting bad.... but that doesn't make them a good person, it simply makes them less likely to suffer the stick in life for acting their nature.

As for the point of the article, it's bullshit. The author of the article is saying that unless we start using science as a religion, in the same dogmatic, emotionally driven way, then it's useless. Complete and utter bullshit. Science that meets those standards isn't science, it is a religion.. and it doesn't reflect reality, only someones desires. The article is a thinly veiled attempt to say: science is bad, religion is good. Bullshit.

Air Force Space Fence Being Shut Down

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 3 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)."
