7/13    Do you believe that in this world, there is good or evil?
        good: .
        evil: ..
        stupid: ...
        \_ first, please define good and evil.
           \_ ob dubya == good, suiciders == evil
             \_ but from some points of view, dubya = evil, suiciders = good
        \_ What does that mean?  Can't there be both?
        \_ No. There is only good or evil. Come on, most of the Americans
           learned this shit in grade school. Let me give you a few examples.
           -Jesus Christ good, athiesm evil.
           -America good, Al Qaeda evil
           -Freedom good, North Korea and Iraq Evil.
           -Family value good, gay marriage evil.
           -Capitalism good, socialism evil.
           -Pro-life good, abortion evil.
           -George Bush good, Sadam Hussein evil.
           -SUV good (freedom), conservation evil (letting terrorists win)
           -Border patrol good, immigrants evil.
           Everyone seems to get it these days. But if you need to relearn
           this shit, please report to your nearest Homeland Security Agency
           \_ To be sort of fair, there are plenty of morons who flip several
              of those bits but keep the same binary view.  The actual state
              of the bits is not what makes them morons.
              \_ This is really really cool and well-stated.  Thanks.  -John
        \- you do if you've been indoctrinated into certain belief systems.
           Christians and Muslims tend to be ethnocentrist, whereas
           overly educated academics tend to be relativists. In another
           word religious phreaks are opinionated and academics are
           wishy-washy, and you should not pay attention to either one.
        \_ No, good an evil are subjective.
           \_ To a degree.  -John

2/10    I like Woz, and I like iWoz, but let me tell ya, no one worships
        him because he has the charisma of an highly functioning
        Autistic person. Meanwhile, everyone worships Jobs because
        he's better looking and does an amazing job promoting himself
        as God. I guess this is not the first time in history. Case in
        point, Caesar, Napolean, GWB, etc. Why is it that people

3/26    Things I learned from History: Lincoln was photographed with
        killer. Lincoln had 3 male lovers (he was bisexual!).
        Kennedy had an affair with a Nazi spy. Elenore Roosevelt
        was a lesbian!!!  Nerdy looking Ben Franklin was a suspected
        killer and quite a ladies man. WTF???
        \_ Did it mention anything about Washington and the cherry tree?

5/1     Osama bin Ladin is dead.
        \_ So is the CSUA.
           \_ Nope, it's actually really active.
              \_ Are there finally girls in the csua?
              \_ Is there a projects page?
              \_ Funneling slaves -> stanford based corps != "active"

11/8    Have you read how Bush says his pro-life stance was influenced
        by his mother keeping one of her miscarriages in a jar, and showing
        it to him?  These are headlines The Onion never dreamed of

11/2    California Uber Alles is such a great song
        \_ Yes, and it was written about Jerry Brown. I was thinking this
           as I cast my vote for Meg Whitman. I am independent, but I
           typically vote Democrat (e.g., I voted for Boxer). However, I
           can't believe we elected this retread.
           \_ You voted for the billionaire that ran HP into the ground

5/26    "China could join moves to sanction North Korea"
        How did Hillary manage to do that when we're also asking China to
        concede on the economic front at the same time?
         \_ China doesn't want NK to implode. NK is a buffer between SK and
            China, or in other words a large buffer between a strong US ally and

1/20    So I want to give some money to Haiti relief funds and my employer
        \_ SOCIALISM
        is willing to match it, but I am not really that big a fan of
        The Red Cross (they take your donations and then spend them
        however they like, not neccessarily on what you gave it to them for).
        Who else is a good charity? UNICEF?

1/11    Social democracy and economic growth are not incompatible:
        \_ SOCIALISM ( yes i did read it )
           \_ Krugman == socialist?
              \_ Obama = Socialist
2009/6/4-5 [Transportation/Car, Politics] UID:53076 Activity:high
6/4     Why do car manufacturers want to close dealerships to save cost?  Are
        dealerships just franchises that are owned by people other than the
        manufacturer?  A franchise losing money isn't losing the manufacturer's
        money, right?
        \_ It is part of Obama's master plan to destroy capitalism and
           make Americans slaves to socialism.

5/18    How did you vote? I voted: No on 1A-C, and Yes on 1D-F
        \_ I voted yes on 1A because I want tax to be as high as possible
           to increase our standard of living, and to get rid of people
           who are otherwise unfit to live in California-- they should
           move back to Arizona or other anti-tax states. Viva
           La California de Republica para Socialism!

2/3     Well said: "What gets people upset are executives being rewarded for
        failure. Especially when those rewards are subsidized by US taxpayers."
        \_ Turns out, he gets it.
           \_ Talk is cheap.
              \_ Freedom is strength.
        \_ Isn't this something like FDR might have said?

12/10   The Invisible Hand:
        \_ You know, I'm all for socialism given how unfair the market
           has been to those who simply got lucky during the dot-com
           and housing boom (I was born in the wrong era and got left
           out while prosperity passed by me). I'm all for socialism, but

11/20   U.S. asks Gulf states to provide $300B in aid to assist automakers,
        banks, etc.  Also asks Kuwait to forgive $16B in loans to Iraq. (AFP)
        \_ Up next: Polite request that BIGOIL kick in some of those
           lovely windfall profits. But don't call it socialism.
        \_ btw, this sounds like complete and utter tinfoil to me, except the

11/14   An overly long article directed to Obama on how he should fix the
        farm/food system.  I actually agree with some of his points, but
        he does go little overboard toward the end. (NYTimes)
        \_ Forget the government, count on saving yourselves! This is a
           GREAT time for you savers to wait it out, and in a few years,
