11/18   A bunch of people I met from Wisconsin are racists. Of all the
        places, why WI?
        \_ I hate Wisconsin Nazis.
        \_ I love Nazis!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q42FzGARnjg

11/18   How was citigroup supposed to buy Wachovia if they are now
        laying off 70,000 people?
        \_ Think how much money they are saving with the layoffs.
        \_ I don't get it.  It looks like Citigroup's fundamentals are
           a bunch of streamer paper I bought from the Halloween store.  Why
           did they think they could handle absorbing Wachovia?  I hope their
           lawsuits against Wells Fargo get laughed out of court.

11/18   I hate the 'FDR prolonged the Great Depression' meme.
        \_ Yah, facts are messy things.

        \_ Which of your LOLECONOMISTs think FDR prolonged the Great Depression?
           Please post a few who do not write for WorldNetDaily.

11/17   How Obama got elected
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mm1KOBMg1Y8
        \_ I'm not sure what asking people what they think of 150k for
           clothes, barney frank (here's a hint, HE IS GAY!!!! LULZ!!!!!)
           and harry reid accomplishes.
           You know why Obama won?  He's a good speaker, he has a good
           squeaky clean image, he didnt choose a complete dumbshit like Palin
           to be his running mate, the  economy cratered, and the Republicans
           in the endgame ran a really  sleazy campaign that turned off
           undecided voters.  It's not  because of the media or a stupid
           youtube video with 'o bama o bama' on infinite loop.  Get over it,
           you  lost.
           squeaky clean image, he didnt choose a clueless ignorant unknown
           like Palin to be his running mate, the economy cratered, and the
           Republicans in the endgame ran a really sleazy campaign that
           turned off undecided voters.  It's not because of the media or
           a stupid youtube video with 'o bama obama' on infinite loop.
           Get over it, you lost. The Republicans didnt present a plan for
           the economy, all they did was chant SOCIALSIM and repeat 'Obama
           pals around with terrorists!' over and over.  You know you don't
           do?  Don't say your opponent is a terrorist.  You undermine
           AMERICA if he wins.  Screw off Republican strategists.
           \_ See, the questions were about facts, not opinions. And the
              respondents got the facts wrong quite a bit.
        \_ Still bitter eh?
        \_ You should go off and form a bitter Government-In-Exile.

11/18   Newtie G. warns that "gay and secular fascism" is a
        "very serious threat."
        http://mediamatters.org/items/200811170014
        \_ We are coming for your children.
           \_ Except for the one that smells like cheese. You can keep that
              one.
              \_ Those taste good when wrapped in batter and pan fried
        \_ There is a serious struggle between the forces of reason and
           tolerance and those who would jail gays, put blacks back on the
           plantation and teach creationism in schools, so Newt is basically
           right. Except the "facism" part, that is just him projecting what
           he thinks the other side would do if (when?) we win from his own
           desires.

11/14   Angry Lead Test Engineer shoots boss, CEO, gets away in a rented car:
        link:www.mercurynews.com/ci_10987100
        \_ you mean angry Lead Test Engineer, whatever that is
        \_ Unfortunately, it looks like they caught him:
           link:www.mercurynews.com/ci_10993931
           Why didn't he run?
           \_ Odds are it was a crime of passion/temp. insanity. He didn't
              run because he was probably in shock.
              \_ he got fired in the morning, left to get a 9mm, came back in
                 the afternoon for a meeting with his superiors, and shot all
                 three dead.
                 \_ yeah it wasnt a crime of shock.  he got fired.  he asked
                    to have a meeting with the three people he thought were
                    involved in his firing.  he killed them all, left
                    the building.
                    \_ Not interested in defending the dude. Just saying that
                       he probably didn't run because he hadn't planned it out
                       that far.

11/18   http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/11/17/triggerfish
        The technology, known as Triggerfish, pretends to be a base station so
        that mobile handsets happily connect to it and identify themselves. A
        Triggerfish deployment can wait for a specific handset to pass by, or
        just grab nearby identities for later analysis.
        lulz.
