Re: "Two wrongs don't make a right."

Why is no one proposing a law to convict bad parents?? Strange that the Mom wants to sue, to "do something about it", while she didn't give a hoot in hell before to allow her daughter to live with Grandma who cared even less.

Here, on Mars, I am about to finish my harvest of my Ham Bushes, in time to start on my Blanket Trees. After all of that, I will be ready to cast my NSM seeds for a new crop. It is a bunch of work to fertilize each of them, personally, but there is no one else but me to do the job. If you all just stay on Earth, I promise not to invade. .

Read IBM CEO Ginni Rometty's letter to staff: Why I walked from Trump's strategy forum

wayward4now
Linux

Trump was right the first time

Keeping in mind that since this is still America, you can say and believe anything you damn well please, no matter who you piss off. You need only to not break existing laws. Worse hatred happens every hour, on the hour, in places like Chicago, Detroit Baltimore and Los Angeles, daily. The problem with Trump's response was that it assumed a general level of intelligence of the listeners. Damn skippy no group should get out of hand during a demonstration. No one should become dead. What is REALLY wrong with this country is that we expect first class behavior from citizens that received a second class brain-deadening education devoid of critical thinking skills. Trump doesn't get that yet. He needs to realize that the majority in this country are knuckle-dragging idiots who lack a half assed education. They need to have things explained to them in a manner that requires no thinking. If Trump had explained that the Klan has been a part of the Democratic Party for 100 years, all hell would have broken out since no one knows that.

Re: Yes, a social media ban is just too wide-ranging these days.

"Some of these individuals may be truly reprehensible and ongoing threats to society, but you can't restrict a whole class of people from career opportunitiesSome of these individuals may be truly reprehensible and ongoing threats to society, but you can't restrict a whole class of people from career opportunities"

Here's the fun part, there are FIVE forms of abuse, not one. Emotional, intellectual, sexual, physical and spiritual. Yet the focus is on sexual. Plus, almost 90% of new sex offenses occur with either family, friends of family, friends of the victim or other authority figures. In other words, the "Registry" points to obvious offenders but not the most likely offenders. Stupid is as stupid does.

Re: Such backwards logic it could only come from polticians

Not to mention young people in radical states usually have no job, no date to the prom, no shoes, no sh*t to attract a mater and live some sort of "good life". So, the only employer in town, willing to put shoes on their feet, a couple of dinars and a rifle are the bad actors ... from OUR perspectives. We should invite the Chinese to come in, provide infrastructure and order, since we'd rather bomb them out of their homes. The Chinese know how to deal with extremists in ways we won't consider. They would be the perfect answer.

Re: PLEASE! STOP!

"The gift that kept on giving comes to an end."

I wish. I bet that Verizon was too f'ing dumb to notice all the user accounts that were dummies held by a few people with multiple usernames. The ONLY reason Yahoo! did nothing to stop the practice was that a REAL user accounting would have been a diaster for their press releases. Verizon bought air. They are stupid. And yet, by breeding among themselves, it spells doom for the human race.

Silicon Valley tech CEO admits beating software engineer wife, offered just 13 days in the clink

Re: @Symon

"How would you suggest compensating a innocent person who has "been beaten to within an inch of his life in jail"

First off, no one lawfully sent to prison is innocent. Forget "victim stance" as any sort of argument.

Second, chances are very good that if you mind your own business in prison, you won't get beaten. Those who show disrespect however, can get the crap beaten out of them. I did five years myself, so I have a clue whereas you don't. I did see a couple of epic fights, which usually involved not paying a debt. Even the guards turned their backs while the debtor got the ass-beating of his life. But, I never saw anyone get a beat-down that they didn't deserve.

Re: jobs aren't entitlements

The Chairman got it right. If every couple produced one child, after two generations the entire robot issue would be mute. It's the highly uneducated third world that produces more uneducated children who are only fit to be on the trigger end of a semi-automatic. Sorry, but the future holds zero prospects for them and only a few prospects for the rest of polite society. Best get used to it.

Linux on Windows 10: Will penguin treats in Creators Update be enough to lure you?

I am surprised that no one mentions the obvious, run Win10 on Linux instead. WAY BACk when, Caldera distributed "wabi" which loaded Win3.1 from your registered floppies and launched it on your Linux desktop. That was pretty amazing to see, plus Win3.1 ran faster on 32bit Linux than it did on 16bit DOS. There was a version to run Win95, but the company got bought up and it disappeared.
