  • CDC confirms first Ebola case diagnosed in US

    I wonder how long the country is going to allow this crap to go on before they wake up to the fact we got an ENEMY OF THE UNITED STATES in the White house.

    The enemies of the United States reside in the senate and in the house, and have (D)'s after their names. The two bit community organizer in the White House has nothing on the likes of Reid and Pelosi. Besides, can you name much which Obama has done that McCain or Romney wouldn't have done? Only difference, both would have had the cooperation of congress.

  • Gov. Jerry Brown signs California gun restriction

    And 50,000 divorce lawyers in California simultaneously licked their lips as he signed the bill. Oh yeah, that’s going to get abused right quick.

    I agree with the concept of this bill. But all that would have changed would have been a few less people killed, and done nothing to those who were murdered in their own home with a knife.

    Again, it is backwards, like any liberal idea - restrict the ‘evil item’ and ignore the deranged madman who would wield it. Had his guns been taken away, he likely would still have done his rampage, just more up close and personal, and quite possibly would have killed more people, as the first 911 calls came from those who heard the shots. A single baseball bat would certainly have killed quite a few.

    Until we’re willing to recognize that there are people who are a danger everyone around them and actually do something about them, these rampages will continue.

  • Microsoft’s Asimov System to Monitor Users’ Windows 9 Devices in Real-time

    kingu to markomalley
    During Windows 8 testing, Microsoft said that they had data showing Start Menu usage had dropped, but it seems that the tools they were using at the time weren’t as evolved as the new ‘Asimov’ monitor.

    Huh, there was a start menu in Windows 8? Didn't see that, and I pretty much only use desktop mode. Only time I go to tiles is when a program doesn't have an icon on the desktop, then I pin it to the bar so I don't have to go to tiles again.

    I'm guessing that the authors meant 'Windows 7 testing', and Microsoft was justifying getting rid of the start menu in Windows 8.

    What? Do any of those nations execute homosexuals? Do any of them lock them up? Oh, right, those people don't walk in and simply explode when their vest goes off, or send you a cheery vacation video where they are cutting off the head of your loved one. So they're safe to pounce on with new dictates from the enlightened ones at the UN.

    Sort of like when they go after ‘human rights violations’ in the US while utterly ignoring the fellow over there who is putting people in chains and seating them before sewing machines.

    Welcome to your first world problems, Latin Americas, you've been scolded by the UN. Of course, this will not affect those who are in armed rebellion against you, nor the drug traffickers who prey on your citizens - doing something useful about those might have actually been welcome. Nope, you must proudly hold your gays erect and salute them and get rid of those unfair laws that define marriage as, you know, meaning marriage and instead offer legal recognition of homosexuals shacking up as if they were a married couple.

    I wonder, to the Islamics pause during their stoning for infidelity of a woman who was raped to laugh at such things? Does the UN ever bother with the woman who faces a death sentence for daring to drive her sick child to a hospital?

    Ahh, right, the ‘protected species’ that is the Muslim nations and their children, such as ISIS, whom the UN can't see for some reason. I wonder if the UN would take an about face on the whole thing in Latin America if they started hating Israel?

    Oh, no no no no.. Filibuster is there to empower liberals. That a couple strange conservatives dared use that power was not acceptable, therefore it was taken from them, with the clear understanding that once the liberals no longer have the majority (HAHAHAHAH) that the power would of course be restored, as working together across party lines is something the senate always does. Unless it is for a conservative issue, then the conservatives are just obstructionists.

    Ahh, yes, the typical liberal bovine excrement. ‘I was a fool because law abiding citizens have guns.’ Of course, his examples are utterly bogus - I defy you to find someone in the UK, no matter what the neighborhood, who could not point out at least three streets within a half hour's drive to NEVER GO TO. Where the police themselves probably will never go to either.

    Things, of course, are just peachy in the UK - they've been unmanned, err, well, I guess it would be more polite to call it disarmed for quite some time. To the point where there are handy dandy knife turnin boxes all across the UK. Because that's the liberal mantra there - that knives are evil and must be turned in, lest someone gets hurt. Like, well, from a Muslim who attacks people with a knife in broad daylight and the stoic UK people turn to that one lone weapon they have left in their arsenal - the cell phone camera, so that they can film the attack.

    Of course, many of those who filmed it were lambasted on social media for being racist. Racist for filming a black Muslim knifing people in the street.

    So yes, accidental shootings do happen. 15 Japanese tourists were killed in the US last year, exactly none of them from accidental shootings. Most were killed in traffic accidents, so of course, we'd best ban cars. Or all drive on the other side of the road because that was where the tourists most expected the car to come from.

    Microsoft officially ended support for PST files in April of this year. You'll need Outlook 2007 or earlier on the new computer to import PST files into Outlook; the newer versions will no longer directly do it. There are some third party tools which will handle it, or you can use third party options which still support PST files for importing old e-mail.

    Most entertaining moment with a jerk parker I've ever seen was up in the mountains, some jerk parked across three spaces to protect his precious baby. Even bragged about it as he walked in. The owner of the place politely suggested he go park his car right, and do it quick, people in these parts don't take to people being a jerk.

    The guy laughed it off, adding on a ‘what are you going to do about it?’

    The owner shrugged, and I leaned over and suggested to the guy, ‘best move the car, you only have a few minutes.’ Again, the laugh and he took his beer over to join his trophy girlfriend.

    Five minutes passed, and 30 motorcycles pulled up into the lot, the riders paused, then about half of them went and parked around the car, the rest across the front of the spaces in a second line. The guy got livid, he's blocked in, and if there's a scratch on his car...

    The bikers laughed, went on to take over most of the bar, and the guy went to the owner, saying he had to do something. ‘I did buddy, I told you to move your car. He warned you as well,’ he added, pointing at me.

    ‘I'll call the police, get them to move those damn bikes.’

    The owner shrugged, ‘go ahead; it's a thirty minute hike to the top of the peak over there, you might, if it is a clear day, get a signal on your phone. And maybe in an hour or three, an officer might stop by. ‘course, then he'd have to call some tow trucks, and those will take two hours to show up. So if you got five hours to blow, you could do that. Or you could go tell those guys that you were a jerk, and you're sorry, and you'd like to go park your car properly. If you do it nice enough, they might even move their bikes.’

    The idiot passed by two pay phones on his way out the door to go hike up to the peak to place his call to the police to get someone to move those cars. Came back about an hour later, grumpy, because he couldn't get a signal. ‘course, in the mean time, the bikers had finished their lunch and already left.

    You need to read the court’s opinion! It was a warrantless search. Under the FL law, the sheriff should not have even been involved. He is specifically excluded from being involved in these “license inspections.” These cops are going to be financially ruined, and that’s a good thing.

    I know, I'm lazy, but since you did read the opinion, I assume the inspectors are excluded from the lawsuit as they technically could enter the premises and inspect licenses at any time?

    I say that the military embraces the new technology medium and has a kickstarter for castrating the soldier and giving him girly parts, and paying for all the treatment. They can put in stretch goals past the campaign point, for things like anesthesia, razors, hormones, the works.

    Green is the New Orange, they can call it. And all these liberals who are oh so eager to make the military pay for his choices can actually fund it.

    Wanna bet that it pulls in only a couple hundred dollars? Liberals love to spend other people's money, but are rather stingy about ponying up their own bucks.

    GOP or Democrat - finding a conservative in the senate is a hard thing to do most days of the week, might get a little better after the new senate is seated, but it will still be hard to find a conservative, and we’ll still complain about the idiotic things that senators do.

    Takes six years to flush out the senate; it will likely be decades before there’s enough conservatives in the senate for them to even caucus together. Especially if we continue to let the GOP hoodwink us into voting for the lesser of two evils.

    Apple came out with their phone that encourages and rewards you to use virtual credits to buy and sell things. It’s fast and convenient. It is the dawn of virtual money and the only thing that could stop it is a nuclear war.

    You do realize that these magic readers have existed for quite a long time. Used to have a dongle on the keychain for getting gas, then they started showing up in cards; just tap and pay. Then many android phones had it - that was the great time, used to get loads of free things for paying with the phone or tablet. Then the machines started breaking. Maybe now that Apple is finally in the boat two years later, some of those machines will get fixed and for a little while I can reach for my phone instead of my card.

    But I figure it will be pretty much a repeat of two years ago, everything will be fab for a couple months, and then the machines will start breaking again and we'll just pull out the cards again.

    People do change, debit cards were a massive game changer - hardly see anyone under 40 using a check anymore. Amusing watching someone write a check, the clerk taking it, running it through the machine and handing it back to the customer. 'What's wrong with my check?' and the clerk replying 'Nothing is wrong, you've paid for your item, we've already gotten the money from your bank, and now I'm handing back the used check for your records. It is a security risk for us to keep checks now.'

    But ease of use is always going to be the champion. First time someone comes across a broken paypass machine and held up a checkout line banging their watch against the reader, they're going to pause next checkout and go 'huh, I know the card will work, the gadget might not, maybe I'll just use the card - plus I want to get cash back anyway.'

    Who knows, maybe this time will be different and all will be rosey. Doubt it.

    Anyway, digressed from the topic - virtual money is already king. I have checks for one place - a local pizza place that doesn't accept credit cards, just cash or checks. Even the local donut shop which led the way in refusing credit cards has finally given in and now accepts them. I pulled $600 from the bank three weeks ago, and still have $560 of it in my pocket.

    And barter is becoming a dying art - it is very difficult to budge anyone off of their marked prices anymore. Heck, look at eBay, the 'biggest online auction site' has reduced the number of auctions to a small percentage of the overall items available for sale. And while 'best offer' is accepted on a lot of auctions, getting someone to actually accept the best offer is rare.

    There will be some people who will accept gold and silver as a medium of exchange if the S does HTF. But don't expect change, and I guarantee the guy who has loaves of bread will find more takers than someone who has a double eagle.

  • The American Middle Class Hasn’t Gotten A Raise In 15 Years

    09/22/2014 8:55:51 PM PDT · 10 of 31
    kingu to Theoria
    Let's see... Middle class stuck with the same wages that they had during Reagan's time. Minimum wage has nearly doubled in most states in that same period.

    Middle class benefits have decreased since the Reagan years, and drastically increased for minimum wage earners.

    The qualification for household income for government assistance has more than tripled since the Reagan years, and of course, middle class households do not need to bother looking.

    A ‘household’ who earns 18,000 a year with two kids (nevermind if one or both of the adults (or more adults) are earning wages under the table) can land nearly $32,000 a year in benefits (health insurance, vision, dental, food stamps, cash assistance, WIC, rent assistance, low priced cable, telephone, internet, electricity, gas...) That pushes them up into nearly median household income, and once you add in the under the table wages, pushes them straight into the middle class.

    Meanwhile, taxes for everything have gone up, and of course, legislatures across the country want to raise it even futher.

    ... The regulations aren't written yet, but starting tomorrow, whenever those regulations are written, they'll retroactively take effect tomorrow.

    There you go, folks, he's doing something by not doing anything. And the Treasury is regulating things with rules that don't even exist.

    kingu to BuckeyeTexan

    Kindle PaperWhite has probably been my most used ‘tablet’ ever. The two biggest gripes I’ve had about it is having to constantly change the lighting (if I’m in a dark room, or a moderately lit one) and I missed the bezel page turning. Both of those are fixed in the new version, but wow, $199 price tag for with ads? I think I’ll suffer along with what I have.

    Were I just now jumping into the market for one? I’d probably choose the Nook, even with B&N on the ropes. A real big advantage is pretty much being able to read almost any book in store for free, very helpful when you’re stuck trying to find something new to read.

    The article linked doesn’t mention it, but of course the Kindle is also compatible with Adobe Editions, pretty much a requirement for reading eBooks from the library. And sort of surprised that little mention was made of their subscription book service at $10 a month, something that could be well worth it for a prolific reader.

    Have to admit, however, that the one thing that is making me itch to pull the trigger on getting the new Kindle is the addition of the origami case; that’s probably the best case I’ve ever purchased for a tablet (my... err, my WIFE’s Kindle HDX has one, whereas I’m always propping up my paperwhite on the sugar packet holder on restaurant tables...)

    So, let’s look at this so far.. A long ilconcieved plan to overthrow Syria’s leader resulted in our arming of Islamics who became ISIS and now our new solution is to arm Islamics who aren’t ISIS to overthrow the Islamics that we armed before... Almost all of whom are Al Queda who are buying DVDs of beheading videos as they all think that part is cool, just the killing of fellow Islamics aren’t cool, unless it was gays or women or smokers or drinkers...

    Kinda how we armed Islamics in Afghanistan to overthrow the Russians who later flew four passenger planes as if they were cruise missiles.

    I’m more than a bit used to liberals doing the old ‘If it didn’t work last time, repeat as obviously conservatives screwed up the plan’, and how we have so many liberals waiving the Republican banner.

    But shouldn’t it be a massive red flag to just about anyone when you have bipartisan rejection of a plan that maybe this is more than a bit stupid to do it again?

    Ever think that a whole lot of our problems could be solved by simply walking up to every reporter and repeatedly bashing them in the head with an unabridged dictionary from 1995? Maybe stop when they actually agree to open the thing up and read what their words actually mean?

    Of course he objects, this will end free transit by his military units across the US border and killing all the cash they are picking up from the drug dealers and mules... It’s cutting into the GDP, I’m sure.

    I'm sorry, when exactly did our country devolve to the point when any law enforcement officer who comes across anyone who MIGHT be a threat has the immediate response of just opening fire?

    ‘He was holding a gun, so I started shooting at him. I missed, but he dropped the gun, so I pulled my head out of my arse and stopped shooting and thought for a second.’

    Civilizations execute criminals. This is just murder, a public serial murderer. Why do we raise murder into some ennobled ritual that civilization uses for continuity and control?

    Every single time I see ‘execution’ in a news article in relation to these murders, my blood boils.

    I don’t know if he was beaten down over a long time or not, just can’t imagine someone calming kneeling there and reading a statement, then having their head cut off short of being shown pictures of his family and told ‘either you do this, or we kill them all.’

    I’d hope that law enforcement is closely looking at images of people who hung out in the area of the murdered victim’s families as I bet that near each of them is a terrorist cell ready to launch an attack.

    Everyone else in the world pays ransom, where do people think that they got the nifty video equipment and sharp knives from?

    Qutar, ISIS on line one, they're looking for another couple million not to kill someone else...

    This statement will sink into oblivion like everything else he may have tried to say over the last few years.

    Sorry, I guess I should have included a sarcasm tag. In the end, Obama's going to be as inconsequential in politics as Michael Moore is.

    Obama’s powerful political machine will BURY Michael Moore for that statement...

    Just as soon as they get done programming the teleprompter, snagging an early iPhone 6, and umm, oh, yeah, get off the golf course.
