    • On Massholes Prepares to Elect a Masshole; Texans Reject An Idiot; Reich Has No Shame, AlexInCT said:
      You should take a look at the bullshit election for governor in CT. I think Tom Foley is a douche, but Malloy makes the man look like a fucking boyscout. These days low information voters and people that vote for a living, especially in the deep blue Northe East, seem to outnumber the informed and productive, which is why we keep getting nothing but dirtbags.

      must have missed something, didn't the Democrats do the 'nuclear' thing so the Republicans could not hold up nominations, so why is the Surgeon General being held up.

      That having been said, the Republicans should let the Murthy nomination move forward. I’m tired of this filibustering, especially for a fairly unimportant position. Sigh. Again, great post up until the let's have parity and throw one at the Republicans just so everything is balanced. Bullshit. Yet another otherwise great post pissed away. Let's try this: Support the filibuster, continue with the filibuster, and explain why to the American people using your great points above. That's what the GOP should be doing. But yet another patented Hal post, of stand up and fight until there is a fight, then oh forget it it's trivial. It's this mentality that gets the right nowhere. If it was just you Hal, I wouldn't care as you're only one person, but this seems to be the frame of mind these days. Bitch and complain then run for the hills. It's a ridiculous pattern. You seem too smart for that, but here we are over and over. Just baffles me.

      Where in the Constitution is provision for a Surgeon General made? He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments. Congress created the office in 1870. It's perfectly constitutional, just like the other cabinet-level officers. They can abolish it if they wish. What else do we need—a Witchsmeller Pursuivant? I would support that actually. The confirmation hearings alone would be the most entertaining and least damaging thing our government has done in a long time.

      I think the airlines have already discontinued direct flights to the afflicted regions. Duncan came through a European connection.

      The fairer question would be to ask why we're alone in continuing to allow ordinary air service to afflicted areas and why this obvious problem is treated so casually by anyone whose job already allows them to begin precautions. We don't need a new manager, what we need is for people who currently carry any sort of stick to use it to block patients from getting here.

      Pretty cool tech. I'm also stoked about this - http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/10/141013090449.htm Scientists from Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) have developed a new battery that can be recharged up to 70 per cent in only 2 minutes. The battery will also have a longer lifespan of over 20 years. Expected to be the next big thing in battery technology, this breakthrough has a wide-ranging impact on many industries, especially for electric vehicles which are currently inhibited by long recharge times of over 4 hours and the limited lifespan of batteries. This next generation of lithium-ion batteries will enable electric vehicles to charge 20 times faster than the current technology. With it, electric vehicles will also be able to do away with frequent battery replacements. The new battery will be able to endure more than 10,000 charging cycles -- 20 times more than the current 500 cycles of today's batteries.

    • On Fans Across Florida, louctiel said:
      Sorry, not Crist, Scott. It doesn’t matter, though. Still a petty, whiny bitch for it. Except Scott wasn't whining about the fan. The organizers of the event - Leadership Florida - have released a statement and the relevant signed documents on what happened with "fangate." The press release says, in part: Both campaigns received a letter in advance from the debate organizers (FPA and LF) stating the format, logistics and other detailed information relating to the debate. The letter also specified that “candidates may not bring electronic devices (including fans), visual aids or notes to the debate, but will be provided with a pad and pen.” The Scott campaign signed and returned the letter on Thursday, October 9. The Crist campaign signed and returned the letter on Monday, October 13, but with the added hand-written note “*with understanding that the debate hosts will address any temperature issues with a fan if necessary.” Dean Ridings, FPA President, received and reviewed the note and told the Crist campaign that the partners want all candidates to be comfortable, but that he expected that Bailey Hall, the newly renovated-facility at Broward College where the debate was to be held, would be maintained at a comfortable temperature,...

      As a Florida resident, I can only say that we have a choice between a turd sandwich and a flaming douche. And that assessment was before we see the grade school whining. I'm glad they allow absentee ballots. It's hard to get the energy necessary to go into the polls when these are your choices.

    • On if you doubted that the usual idiots in the LSM have no clue, TxAg94 said:
      I hope they do get some training and decide to take the fight airborne. Even assuming they get past Syrian AAA and fighters, our pilots are probably itching for a fight. The F-22 needs to get some kills on its resume. I'd love to see some A-10s get a few aerial kills just to thumb their nose at the detractors. I don't think these clowns will last long. The scariest threat they pose is some sort of kamikaze attack. Again, they have to make it to their target first. Ready fro some gun camera footage...

      I don't agree with telling him to ditch the fan. If it's allowed, then Crist is a petty, whiny bitch for making a stink out of it. If he doesn't want a fan then fine, but anything to prevent swamp crotch should be allowed in Florida. And to anyone not yet in the know about Florida Man, you should look that up to see why they bothered to capitalize it.

      Seriously, terrorists don't need to dicker around with anthrax or any other bio-agents. They can just sit back and let our own fucking government do all the heavy lifting of putting American citizens at risk.

    • On Ebola Comes to the US, Iconoclast said:
      The utter incompetence boggles the mind -- a second health worker who provided care for Patient Zero has contracted the disease, and was given a green light to fly a commercial airline while having symptoms. You may say it's overblown, that the virus cannot spread here the way it has in Africa, but these reassurances are easily offset by our utterly incompetent and downright careless government. It's almost as if the powers that be want an epidemic here in the USA. Letting a sick healthcare worker fly while symptomatic is criminally negligent.

      And what is the result of big Government being in cahoots with big business? Less corporate regulation on behalf of the consumer, leading to monopolies that a fat cat can buy from the Government. It sounds like we’re on the same side on this one – that when the corporate world can influence policy makers, the consumer loses out. The party that the policy makers belong to doesn’t matter. You could argue the equivalent with unions. “I have a huge problem when you want your profitability to come at the expense of the consumer” : Alex “It is critical that the American people, and not just their financial institutions, be represented at the negotiating table”.

      Hang on... are you saying that there should be more regulation, because unfettered capitalism doesn't always benefit the consumer? There's nothing fair and square about the unregulated free market. Your problem here is the Government not regulating against monopolies. Alex calling for more Government intervention?

      I expect them to do everything legally in their power to enhance shareholder value, that is their job. Getting called out periodically for very consumer-unfriendly policy and activity won't do that. Getting away with it for a while might, but the visibility of these kind of things make people run away. I've been a Verizon customer for 10 years, and the kind of begging through mail and email that they're doing with me makes it crystal clear that I'm not under contract anymore and they're afraid I'll leave. They should be. And that's why the whole Comcast thing is so scary. The Obama FCC seems very comfortable with Comcast swallowing NBC and now Time-Warner. When there is nobody to run to when you're running away, it's a lot harder. These old media companies are finally becoming aware of how important they don't seem when it's become so easy to get what you need from the internet. Rather than adapting, they're trying instead to force the internet into their ancient business model, and the Obama administration finds that acceptable. By allowing these mergers to happen, they're allowing old media holdouts like Comcast and Verizon to...

      In the cases of the extremist moonbats like Pelosi, the two are the same thing. We managed to let a couple or three decades of district gerrymandering make extremist devotion to a political concept the election itself. And of course, political entrenchment by the likes of Harry Reid or Ted Kennedy or Bagwan Jim McDermmot in where they get filthy rich off of slush funds and "campaign donations" while pushing the pork around is the goal of being a politician.

    • On The Latest White House Oops, Hal_10000 said:
      Wow, the details on this are amazing. The White House's investigation consisted of asking the guy if he'd seen a hooker. The press contacted the hotel, found out her name, that she'd had ID scanned, etc. There are now at least two people making credible accusations that they were retaliated against for looking into this. I don't think there's much of a question this guy hired a girl. And I don't think there's much of a question that the lying simpering White House covered it up.

      Just out of curiosity, do you not see the irony, writing a post about a government agency cooking the books (lying to us), then following that up with another post taking what another government agency (the GAO) says as gospel? This administration has politicized (and tainted) the State Dept, the CIA, the Secret Service,Justice, the IRS, the DHS, the Commerce Dept, nobody can believe or take stock in anything the government tells us, any part of the government, it is too agenda driven. I have nothing against profits. I just want you to make them because you are selling a great product people want and beat the competition fair and square. And that is exactly what is happening here. AT&T found the competition offering a better deal (more data/same price) and they had to follow suit, adapt or die, free market capitalism as it's finest. As a shareholder of both T and VZ, I expect them to do everything legally in their power to enhance shareholder value, that is their job.
