Jesus christ... can you take like 30 seconds to try to follow your own conversation?

Varan: They shouldn't be focusing on Russia inofluencing the election because it was so close
RedEye: It was not close
Varan: Give it a rest, change the electoral college, you had your chance
Me: You can't change the electoral college because... reasons
Varan: None of this matters Trump won anyway
Me: Then stop using it as a reason if it doesn't matter

Please stop talking us in circles.

Varan, do you know what the process is for abolishing the electoral college? It requires 3/4 of the states to approve it. How does one convince (mostly red) states who are being over-represented in the electoral process to give up that power?

Congress has actually tried to change the electoral college over 700 times since it's inception.

There is no reason to wash away the fact that 3 million more people voted for Hillary. We all know the electoral college sucks, but implying the election was "close" is just dishonest.

People have always trusted the intelligence communities, it only seems to be now that they are saying things you don't like that their credibility comes into question.

Nothing actually found in the Podesta emails (or the Clinton emails) was even remotely bad. Nothing illegal and obviously nothing prosecutable. It's the GOP that has been pretending like the mere existence of these emails is the end of the world even though they contain nothing of consequence.

Podesta's emails aren't the only thing that were hacked and they aren't the only thing contained in the intelligence reports. The RNC was also hacked, but since they had an agenda none of those emails were released to the public.

Since nothing of consequence was found in the emails there is no reason to be upset with anyone but the hackers. Hacking another nation's political process is an act of war. You should care who did it.

When the cries of "show me proof" are answered with "here's proof" your first response can't be "well I don't trust you anymore!".

Trump is right

Trump literally has no idea what he is talking about because he has not actually reviewed any of the evidence.

"According to wikileaks assange" could not possibly be a more meaningless term. Who gives a flying fuck what he says? Wikileaks isn't credible because of him, its only credibility are the documents that it leaks being verifiable on the servers they originated from.

Please, keep explaining to us how a GOP-led administration faked the precedent for the Iraq war... it's really driving home your point that the GOP isn't the party that starts wars. Rolleyes Jesus christ, you are dense.

There is nothing wrong with the intelligence community. There is something wrong with people who ignore or willfully misinterpret that intelligence (like Trump is doing) and say/do whatever they want instead.

So you've gone so far down the idiot rabbit hole that you actually believe that the CIA/FBI/NSA are doing Hillary's bidding... even though at least 2 of them are headed by republicans... but they couldn't even get her elected? The same FBI that derailed Hillary's campaign over the stupid emails just told you that Russia did actually hack the DNC and RNC... but now they are in Hillary's pocket too? Boy, that is some extremely ineffective effectiveness. It almost bears disbelief!


This was a good time. Do you have any more right-wing conspiracy nut stories that you'd like to know are verifiable bullshit? I could do this all day.

oh, those same intelligence experts that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction? Those experts?

Have you ever actually bothered to read that now de-classified report? They didn't say he had weapons, they said he was trying to obtain them. They also stated that Iraq had no ties to Al-Queda.

the intelligence community concluded that Iraq "probably has renovated a [vaccine] production plant" to manufacture biological weapons "but we are unable to determine whether [biological weapons] agent research has resumed." The NIE also said Hussein did not have "sufficient material" to manufacture any nuclear weapons and "the information we have on Iraqi nuclear personnel does not appear consistent with a coherent effort to reconstitute a nuclear weapons program."

Then the Bush administration took the report and willfully misrepresented it as a prelude to war.

in an October 7, 2002 speech in Cincinnati, Ohio, then-President George W. Bush simply said Iraq, "possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons" and "the evidence indicates that Iraq is reconstituting its nuclear weapons program."

Please, don't let facts get in the way of your lifetime of accumulated stupidity.

despite countless times being told by Julian Assange that the leak wasn't from Russian hackers?

And you believed that... LOL

Sorry, but I'll stick with the intelligence agency reports that prove it was Russia. You have decided that a foreign agent is more trustworthy than the American intelligence community. That makes you astronomically gullible.

Support Trump, just shut the fuck up about Hillary. Your willingness to believe every lie and rumor about her isn't impressing anyone.

Stand there and SUPPORT TRUMP. Support a man who is ignoring his intelligence briefings because he gets his facts from twitter. Go on... be the idiot he wants you to be. You can do it, of that I'm certain.

Yes, one can only speculate about something that was never even a remote possibility. You did a fantastic job of eating up all of the fearmongering that the GOP was selling though. The GOP... you know... the political party that actually starts wars.

But hey, we can all live the reality of Trump's America now... thanks for that!

How many more months will it be before you stop using Hillary as a cutch?

Yeah I don't know why I didn't click it first, it's right there. :p $40 for a coax-to-USB adapter is some pricy bullshit, but it does seem like those adapaters are $40+ no matter where you buy them.

What the fuck are people paying $40 for then??

My guess is the $40 is for a powered OTA antennae, because that is how much they actually cost? Not sure where you got your $20 from. Most people don't live close enough to major cities to use an unpowered antenna.

Coal is necessary for awhile longer, solar is still not viable yet.

They also can't wish their shitty coal jobs back into existence just because they refuse to "move on". When push comes to shove... those jobs simply aren't coming back. We didn't lose hundreds of thousands of coal jobs because coal is dirty, we lost them because they got automated.

Just like manufacturing jobs and truck driving, mining is no longer a viable career path. Does it suck to hear that? Yeah, well... reality sucks sometimes.

All they really have to do is start up a college grant for workers in those disappearing industries. Put the onus on them to re-educate themselves and if they do then those are exactly the type of people you want to hire. If they just sit around looking for handouts or their old jobs back... fuck em.

The Clean Power Plan passed by Obama doesn't actually go into effect until 2022.

Don't let facts get in the way of a good rant, though. Fuckin Obama!

I don't think we should be worried about keeping towns in the mountains of west virginia afloat just because they used to be sustained by coal jobs. Coal is fucked, coal is over. No one should be feeling bad about the jobs lost, they are shit awful jobs. These people don't need their coal jobs back, they need education so they can get different jobs.

Just like the auto industry in Detroit... these jobs are never coming back thanks to automation. The people living in these areas need to be told this instead of being constantly lied to. This is how we end up with statements like "Hillary abandoned the blue collar worker". No, she just didn't lie to them about bringing jobs back that are never coming back. They didn't want to hear that, so they felt "abandoned". It's time for these people to wake the fuck up and get with the times.

Everything this article is complaining about is only a problem with free Skype accounts, which... obviously, no one should be using if privacy is a word you understand the definition of.

Skype for Business works just fine, assuming you've locked your employees from contacting anyone outside the company (which I believe is the default setting).

This list is so very "ARS"... YikYak? Who cares about a failed social media site that was never actually successful?

Then they blast twitter for the fact that it's users are uncontrollable and leaving the service for SnapChat. Doesn't this (hopefully) mean that Snapchat (running on the same failing business model) is now going to be flooded with the same uncontrollable user base that scares away investors and run themselves out of business as well? Shouldn't they make the list?

How does this list not start with Sprint?!

I'm bored.

even though the whole HDR thing for consoles runs ATI.

Can you elaborate? I feel like HDR is just one of those things that is confusing people. Outputting HDR to a TV and HDR lighting in games aren't the same thing.

It fixes the parking problem by lowering the consumer purchase of vehicles over time. Currently, you and your wife own 2 cars to do your 4 trips. Now you will only need 1 car to do those 8 trips you described. You've at the very least already halved the number of cars needed on the road per household. In reality, that one car will handle multiple households, further reducing the size of the fleet of cars.

People will start carpooling more because the carpool cars will be cheaper than individual rides and there will likely be a lower wait time for them as well.

I have a feeling that automated cars will turn out to be more like a subscription service than personal ownership and the insurance liabilities will stay with the fleet owners. Obviously not right away, but in time. Car insurance companies are going to dry up quick when there are significantly fewer accidents. Their business model will have to change.
