Re: His Manifesto
Perhaps you can point out in Brenton's manifesto precisely where he claims whites are any better than anyone else because I must have missed that passage myself.

Well I do not agree with you. Defeating racism is attacking an individual's right of association. Racism practiced on an individual level is protected behavior. It's no different than folks going to church really. This has all been decided in court too. See National Socialist Party of America v. Village of Skokie and learn how to freedom better. Take a civics course or something will ya? What is the world coming to these days, I swear! Someday you're going to realize just how short life really is. Then you're going to wonder why we all put up with you for so long.
I'm sorry I'm such a tall and cruel mountain where your bones may bleach on my flanks. Yeah no that doesn't happen. Yet climbers still assault the mountain every year. Never apologize! Then the cretins smell blood in the water and attack. If Linus didn't blow his stack there would be people that don't get the message. There are people that thick. They have extremely thin skin though. When Linus flips out on people they should just say, Thank you sir. May I have another?
The beatings will continue until productivity improves. The USA simply cannot afford to lose all manufacturing capability just so consumers can enjoy low prices. We have to make products here. This is a strategic imperative. Past administrations were prepared to destroy the country but the present one is on a different course. That's why we elected him!
To date the USA remains the only country that has *EVER* successfully landed a mission on the surface of Mars. No other country has done it even once. Well unless you want to count the 12 seconds one Soviet probe supposedly worked. Personally I do not put that into the win column myself. One of our rovers has been operating on the surface of Mars for 14 years now. Yes that's some kind of a record right there. So quit harping on one mission that failed. Space exploration is risky business but no one is more successful at it than the USA is. No one else even comes close.
Apollo was a fair sized war. Apollo was one of the major battles of the Cold War. Beating the Soviets was the only reason we went to the Moon. So even after Kennedy was assassinated the value of the mission was lost on no one. The end of Apollo was canceled though. The last vehicles were diverted to the Skylab project.
But we stand a good chance of meeting artifacts they left. If you assume they'd advance along similar lines to us then eventually they'd put Von Newman machines in space to exploit resources, just like we will someday, if we manage to survive long enough. Organic life can't cross the vast gulfs of deep space, but machines can. Machines built to exploit resources would be pretty much hardwired to strip solar systems. Whole galaxies even. Greed 2.0. Organics are just the rough prototype. Intelligence will build a better model.
The Big Bang was an explosion like none other since. So it cannot be compared against other explosions that have happened since then either. The Big Bang did something that no other explosion has. It created reality as we now know it. Although not immediately. It took hundreds of millions of years for things to cool down enough for matter, time and space to even exist. Before that it was just an expanding ball of energy. That's what's so strange about the event. It was a singular occurrence in our reckoning. What it did is nothing short of completely astonishing too. Every mote of dust in this whole Universe owes its very existence to that one moment. We are the echo. An aftershock? I am not boffin enough to know.
Don't think that running Linux makes you immune to group think. There's really no viable way to get around running Systemd today. Believe me, I tried. Without systemd my system booted up in half the time that systemd is taking now. Which in my case was 12 seconds cold start. The actual OS was booting in 3 seconds. This is on a mechanical HDD too. Fortunately once I have a system all configured and installed I don't boot up much. I've still had to deal with systemd a little bit recently. It sucked nutz too. I also don't usually deal with init either, or the fallout from init for that matter. Still systemd seems to be a resource hog compared to what classic init was. I wish I wasn't using systemd. But the distro maintainers all seem to think it is important so we're stuck with it now.
If you've hooked your wagon up to Microsoft's train then you really should march to their beat. Single point corporate control is one of the big reasons I don't use Windows myself. But if I did I'd toe the line. Just like I have to do in the platform I use now. I go along to get along. Breaking away from the herd has its downsides.
Trump is the Commander in Chief. If he wants to fire someone that's what we put him in office to do. Everyone serves at the pleasure of the President. If someone gets canned then that's just how it goes. Trump is Commander in Chief, not cuck in chief. He's where he is because he's got a set. Hillary thought she had a pair, but her sack was empty.
There is no scientific proof that global climate change is due to human activity. And even if there was what can anyone do about it? If you want to be useful then come up with a practical solution. Otherwise stuff a sock in it already. Because we're already doing the absolute best that we can right now. But if you think you can do better then show me.
Do you know how those same Russians were admitted into the United States? I mean they were foreigners and foreigners can't just waltz into the country legally. So then the question remains which administration was in power that gave them the permission to enter the country? That would be Obama. Because he was in power when that meeting took place. So that whole meeting was a trap setup by the Democrats in the first place! That's collusion right there. Members of Obama's administration colluded with foreign agents to entrap people in the opposition campaign.
Oh, and by the way just listening to people is not a crime.
The United States of America as the name suggests is not a flat democracy, but rather a democratic republic. As such we are not subject to the tyranny of the masses either. That is part of what makes this nation so great. The elaborate system of checks and balances that have been carefully crafted into a system insuring that everyone has a voice. Not just a simple majority.
No one wants those old rust disks anymore. But I just bought one for this PC. It was cheaper than getting a SSD. I bought a Seagate HDD too. It is pretty fast for a mechanical disk. I'm getting over 200 MB/S out of it.
# hdparm -tT /dev/sda1
Timing cached reads: 26068 MB in 2.00 seconds = 13045.46 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 626 MB in 3.01 seconds = 208.20 MB/sec
It is a ST1000DM010-2EP102
So $50 for a TB of storage, what the hey? Down the road someday I'll get one of them fancy SSDs. But it better be a lot faster than the rust I'm spinning now is.
You hope they updated? Who do you think they are James Bond? Most of us have nothing on our systems but data anyone can access on the Internet anyways. It is not like you're going to get the launch codes out of my PC, that's for sure. For the processing power it'd take to gain any worthwhile data out of Spectre or Meltdown you might as well just mine for bitcoins. You'd be ahead of the game. At least with mining you know there's some value in it eventually. On my PC right now you'd just be reading this stupid comment I'm posting. Big whoop de do. Random cache data is low grade ore. It's not worth digging into. Not unless you're focused on a valuable target at least. Which most of us just aren't.
Microseconds? That is 3 orders of magnitude slower than processor speed, which is clocked in nanoseconds. Millionths, billionths, you know? All of this sounds a lot like spitballing to me. Sure in theory there is a flaw, but practically exploiting it is another matter entirely. How does one know if they've just gotten a password, or random garbage? Without context and structure data is pretty worthless. Meltdown and Spectre strike me more as slow news cycle hype than anything else right now.
We just catch, then flay alive all system crackers. Problem solved! Because the performance penalty we're all going to have to pay otherwise is simply unacceptable. So I say make the guilty pay. Of course if hardware manufacturers want to replace the defective hardware they've sold us all I'd be open to that as well. In a way that is making the guilty pay too.
It is plain to see that you don't get computers. Machines need to run. They can't stop for anything. Maybe they're getting exploited, maybe you'll figure it out someday. But as long as they're still doing the tasks they've been assigned that's going in the right direction. Now put on your big boy pants.
The bottom line is a kernel has to do one thing, that's run. Stopping for no good reason is unacceptable. If I wanted an OS that fell over so easily I'd run Windows. Believe me it'd be easier for me in so many other ways. After 25 years of doing what he's been doing Linus might just know a bit more about Linux than anyone else does too. Like why Linux has become as popular as it has. Because Linux runs! Let's keep it that way.
