The only labeling I do is to people that act like Obama can do no wrong and that the GOP and Bush are the anti christ.

How about you prove it then because there isn't a single person on this site that acts like "Obama can do no wrong".

Unfairly labeling people is about 80% of your shtick here.

Hilarious...

If I want to use HD on Amazon Prime Instant Video I have to leave my TV on because my desktop display is not HDCP compliant but my secondary display the TV I hardly use is. Weirdly enough I prefer watching movies and TV at my desk. If I turn the TV off the Amazon player will detect and immediately switch back to SD only.

I try to go legit with my media and all they want to do is figure out ways to fuck me over and make piracy still the better product.

edit: Hahah and if I try to watch it on my TV display I need to leave my non-HDCP desktop display on or else it reverts... Basically both have to be on for me to have HD content. That is against their own idiotic rules, a pop-up came up saying all displays need to be HDCP, except my only working configuration is one HDCP and one non-HDCP.

edit2: Okay I figured it all out... Apparently both my displays are HDCP compliant but if I have them both hooked up they need both be powered on. If I physically unhook one or the other Prime will let me play HD on either.

Desktop and TV cabled and both powered = HDCP
Desktop and TV cabled only one powered = No HDCP
Only Desktop cabled and powered = HDCP
Only TV cabled and powered = HDCP

Please fill out this survey so I can call you a liar because I can't comprehend why anyone would want to willingly contribute to the betterment of a society other than an inexperienced child.

Seph when you get out into the real world and realize you have to work for things, they aren't just handed to you on the backs of others, and they SHOULDN'T be, maybe you'll gain some wisdom as to how the world actually is.

It's nice to dream about this magical utopia that you think socialism would somehow bring about, without realizing that someone has to pay for it all. Reality has a habit of smacking you upside the head eventually. You'll get there someday I'm sure.
Didn't you read my post earlier about my company providing my healthcare? You responded to it.

It depends on your definition of the "real world" but I would say I've been living in it for the past 10 years. Graduated from high school in 2004, I took out 50K in public/private loans for college, had two internships (Stardock and Raymond James), graduated from college in 2008 with a BS in IT. Got my first job one month out (they called me because developers were/are in demand here) and I've been working salaried here for the past 4.75 years. It's an excellent company, I get bi-annual raises, nearly monthly bonuses, profit sharing, full health and dental, and ample vacation and personal time. I put 20% into my 401k (and the company matches to a certain amount) I drive a 2013 Taurus SHO and am shopping around for my first home (apartment now). I vote in every election I can and vote to raise taxes whenever possible because I have more money than I need. Throughout my life and my family's we've made use of infrastructure and programs that are supported by taxes.

We live in a powerful and successful country that can afford to raise the quality of life for its citizens. If I lived somewhere else in the world I likely wouldn't have been as successful as I am. It was poorly stated but Obama's "you didn't build that" speech was trying to drive this point home. You benefit everyday from something that is paid for with taxes, you aren't doing it alone.

Not surprised. So it's a joke to you then. Look at the national average for what Obamacare is going to ultimately cost people, and the numbers don't lie. Just like the myth about Clinton's magical non existent surplus we have the democrats bold faced outright lying again. And it's you and me, and all the rest of the American tax payers, whether you're liberal, republican, or anywhere in between who are going to pay for it. Fucking awesome.

My younger sisters get to stay on my mom's insurance for a few more years because of Obamacare but they got estimates from the exchange anyway and it's going to be cheaper for them then pre-Obamacare health insurance when they do eventually need it. I'm provided health insurance by my company that's $16 a paycheck for health and $3.25 for dental and I put $5 in my flexspend. So with two paychecks a month that's $48.50. I think it might've just gone up a bit a few months ago and the CEO sent out an email that he'll make sure it stays reasonable since our health is important to him.

That's really all the anecdotal evidence I have left.

Cursive is well...still required for a lot of few jobs.

Fixed that for you

I do write in cursive as a matter of preference though. Learned it in 2nd grade and never stopped.

I picked the Lions every time and went 4-3

A few weeks ago our damn punter got player of the week for kicking consistently massive punts. Then against the bungles he kicks a 25 yarder and they throw two passes and kick a field goal to win the game

Don't give him ideas!

That IRS thing stinks. Supposedly the reason was that tax dodgers were associating themselves with the TP precisely because auditing them would be awkward. That's possible but I'm really rather far from convinced.

I never really understood what was wrong with targeting a group whose acronym stood for "Taxed Enough Already" for extra scrutiny when applying for tax exemption. Also did anyone ever find any malice applied to the keyword list? Seemed like they just told the program to look for certain keywords that would get extra scrutiny, and subsequent reports showed there were all kinds of things on that list including lefty groups.

Stop writing "Brittan". I was hoping it was just a slip earlier but it's clear that you just don't know any better. It's "Britain" and that's not what you call that country anyway, it's the United Kingdom.

You might need to brush up on what an arbitration court is before we have this conversation.

Two people go to a respected member of their community whom they both trust to settle a dispute. WE'RE DOOMED.

Still leaving out a key portion here... Both parties have to agree to arbitration.
Also nothing the arbitration court decides can supersede or interfere with the actual law/statutes/consitution whatever.

From what I've read it sounds like there are arbitration courts that handle civil matters. They still need to be in line with British law. Jewish communities have had arbitration courts like this in England for over 100 years and yet haven't overridden British law yet.

Nobody here in the U.S. is worked up about Judge Judy and Judge Mathis running arbitration courts. Why should I care if Judge Hakeem runs his own arbitration court with a sharia grounding.

Right Seph, and there are more extreme elements pushing for outright Shira. Incidentally read some of the horror stories about those arbitration courts. Women still tend to be treated like sub human.

They can push all they want it's not going to happen. And worrying about it happening is crazy.

I will concede that women are not treated equally. They're not treated equally in many religions and societies. The nice thing about the U.K. and United-States and most "western" countries is that all people are afforded rights by the state including women. They are not the property of their husbands. They are free to leave their husbands, to divorce them, and if their religion or culture does anything criminal or anything that abridges their rights the state should intervene and the perpetrators will find themselves in real criminal court. I can't say I find much sympathy for people "forced" to wear hijab or follow sharia law in the U.S. or U.K. ... They're not forced, they do so to appease their religion, a religion they can freely leave.
