It would be more realistic if Glenn Beck was sticking a knife in the outlet.
IGnatius T Foobar will need some quiet time after watching this video.
I've noticed something. I'm not sure if it's confirmation bias. It might not be.
Today's hypothesis: people who insist on calling the Linux operating system "GNU/Linux" tend to lean *very* left politically.
Go ahead, scour the web and see if I am correct. Again, although I usually speak 101% authoritatively, this is a hypothesis. I am seeing a lot of correlation between people insisting on saying "GNU/Linux" and those same people endorsing and promoting Bernie Sanders.
Richard Stallman is the obvious first line in that data set. Robert Pogson was the second in mine, which inspired this theory.
Stallman is so far out there, more of a left-libertarian somewhat in the Chomsky tradition if I understand him correctly, that endorsing Sanders could actually be compromising his principles in the name of expediency. Which is ridiculous, when you think about it.
Oh, and Chomsky is apparently voting Clinton this time, so go figure...
We live in interesting times.
...and then there are those that pronounce it Lyn-X or Lye-nex. (Lye as in Linus)
Penn (Penn & Teller) said he should probably vote for Sanders, which surprised me as he has always promoted the libertarian party and ideas. He pronounces Linux as in Linus.
"I am a liberal, not a libertarian ... we need other tools as well, such as the welfare state"
-- Stallman [http://www.resonancepub.com/rstallman.htm]
rms is hard core left, there's no doubt about that. There's not a libertarian bone in his body. He usually supports the Green party but this year he's all-in for Sanders. If you go to his personal home page [https://stallman.org/] you will be served a very generous portion of liberal moonbattery.
I've pointed out before that the spirit of open source software is rooted in communism, but it's the kind of communism you'd see in a commune rather than the kind you see in a socialist state. Stallman/Sanders would force all software to be GPL and managed by a central controlling authority if they could. (Clinton would massively fund the development of email servers with more security, of course. Bush would mandate 100% of developer jobs offshored. Cruz would make it illegal for banks other than Goldman Sachs to have computers.)
No, Bush would have the NSA run all the servers.
Subject: #NeverTrump == #NeverReagan
From the "The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same" department:
Here are some fun little newspaper clippings from 1980, where the same type of people (in some cases, the same people, or organizations) who are #NeverTrump liberals today, were #NeverReagan liberals in 1980.
From a March 1980 newspaper:
And here's that classic left-wing rag National Review trashing Reagan:
All the same crap. The words "stop Reagan" appear, they claim he's the least likely to beat Carter, etc. etc. And we all know how that turned out: a landslide victory followed by a sustained wave of prosperity.
Reagan increased the size of government and spent like crazy.
This is funny.
Sanders refuses to give up. He is batshit insane and so are his supporters. He'd better be careful -- people who make life inconvenient for the Clintons tend to die. :)
"Ted Cruz is no longer a liar, we donbt say Lyin' Ted anymore," Trump told the crowd. "We love Ted, we love him, right? We love him. Now we donbt want to say Lyin' Ted. I'd love to pull it out and just use it on lying, crooked Hillary because she is a liar."
Sander's supporters are like Trump supporters, they are sick of the party, and the government listening to the people. So it is good to have them, and it is good they wont give up.
What I don't understand is the "Government sucks, the only answer is to make it bigger!"
Trump sounds like a third grader.
But he's OUR third grader. PTHPTHPTHPTHPTHPTPTPHH!!!!!!!
Trump sounds like a third grader.
Who cares? While your "principled conservatives" have delivered nothing but failure for the last 28 years, Trump has produced successful businesses, stimulated the economy, created jobs, etc.
Frankly, the whole political scene is made up of third graders. I'll side with the third grader who actually knows how to get a job done.
Then I wonder why you hate on other politicians by calling them Hitler. Cause Hitler made Germany great again. He streamlined the government, made german industry big, created jobs like a machine. Even for those, that were reluctant at first. He improved the infrastructure (the Autobahnen!!!) and he also hated on foreigners, he even moved all unwanted foreigners out of Germany, back were they belong.
Last night was "historic" -- but not for the reasons the liberal media is touting, it has nothing to do with Hitlery Clinton.
Trump clinched the nomination with an all time record number of votes. More than any republican candidate in history.
I do like what he said about career politicians in last night's speech: the corrupt system will never be fixed by the people who benefit from it.
They've rolled over for Obama.
The few real conservatives like Cruz and Gowdy are total outsiders.
Trump is a Democrat. Don't think otherwise.
