Comment Re:Obama is responsible (Score 1) 140

I'm actually more spot on than you realize, regarding raygun/OB/AlQaeda/ISIS/XYZ.
I don't question your "facts".

I present the facts that Raygun, making backroom deals with Islamic factions in Afganistan, partly to fuck with the soviets, partly for money & power .. afterward you renege on all promises .. and then publicly make your new "friends" now your most hated enemy ..

The fact that the US has been meddling in and outright fucking over many of the countries of the middle east for generations .. for oil .. and money/power

It takes time to make a fine wine.
Most people in the US have the attention span of goldfish.

You are so fucking clueless. Absolutely disgusting
"We armed Iraq in the 1980s as they fought Iran,"

Raygun sold boatloads of military hardware to Iran in '81 for helping him get elected.
Hell, those assholes sold military hardware to everybody. Even OBL. All Illegal as hell by any law under the sun.
They literally made Al Queda and released it onto the world.
Fitting that the most recent Bush clusterfuck we had earned them all guilty convictions for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Good thing you missed that part. They pretty much raped and buttfucked the world and left us with this shitpile to deal with.

Good goldfish! Look, Fox news is feeding you more bullshit. Go get it

Unfortunately the job creators have been very good to the Chinese by sending all the manufacturing jobs to China.
So of course they can "keep costs low and profits high." Yeah, no shit Sherlock. Pennies on the dollar cheap Chinese child labor.

So, .. "Everybody that matters is happy." Well the poor slobs that have lost their jobs off-shored to China, maybe not so much

But the bright side, there is all sorts of really cool cheap Chinese made stuff stocked full on Walmart's shelves for whenever those poor slobs can steal enough shit from the "job creators" and hock that shit back to the very same people they stole it from for cash so they can go to Walmart and buy all that cool shit imported from China.

So now "Everybody that matters is happy.

Not meaning to troll,
but articles like this always leave me with a smile, not out of malice, but out of relief .. that I got away from M$ products SO many years ago.
Not even a twitch, only condolences to the poor bastards having their lives literally ruined by M$ Abortionware and the reasoning of the assholes at the M$ helm. From TFA, et al.

Define "illegal".
I watch every-single-day as the US gov does all sorts of "illegal" bullshit claiming any-and-every form of "executive privilege".
CRAB violated every law they chose to on bullshit premises, .. and got away with it with the support of every republican moron in the land, .. citing the current bogeyman of "war on terror" as their excuse to get around every protection the US Constitution affords.

Forget islamic state, the US gov, (House, Senate and supreme court) which are now under total control by right wing lunatics, under the control of their corporate owners (Monsanto, Dow chemical, Carlyle group, Halliburton, Bechtel, Goldman Sachs, et al) are far more dangerous to American's rights and lives than any islamic group will ever be.

No, .. these assholes (the KKK) are fair game to any that choose to push back against their inbred ignorance.
Fuck those assholes!

Give a good look at PCBSD.
The Linux ecosystem is currently in upheaval due to an abortion being assimilated by most distros, called systemd.
The purpose of systemd is to make the Linux desktop more "windows like". It is necessary for the Gnome desktop to function. The Gnome desktop is a pile of garbage, so don't waste your time if you can avoid it.
PCBSD will run on most hardware and is simple to install and use.

Comment Bubonic Plague (Score 3, Informative) 132

I used to live in Tahoe.
Occasionally during the summer months, someone would contract bubonic plague after their house cats were outside and near ground squirrel burrows.
It is transmitted by fleas of the common ground squirrel in the area. Don't remember the species.

The infestation of infected fleas usually gets worse in drought years.

Plague fleas are found all over the sierras, Yosemite as well.
