"Its few to none reciprocating these kinds of attacks on Sanders supporters"

Sure. And given that they're all raving misogynist racist purple shirt wearing mac fanboy brogressives afflicted with white male pathology who barely have time to put gas in their broke-ass Rand Paul Sticker covered volvo klanmobiles before driving their elitist entitled selves to the library to check out atlas shrugged and getting on the public computers there to hate-swarm everything that is pure and decent on social media (and look at porn, probably) after which they commit a series of microaggressions and then head down to the local venezuelan embassy to declare their undying love for Stalin and Hugo Chavez, before finally dining on a feast of cornflake-covered brofurkey....

can you imagine how those *********s would react if they WERE called names?

by the way, your comment?

Right. First off, "manhattan projects" are by definition huge and expensive. Two, "collaboration"

implies a willingness for both parties to work together- The tech industry has been consistent and clear that there is NO mathematical way to create a backdoor or otherwise weaken encryption so that only "good guys" can get in (leaving aside, of course, that every fucking time we are sold a bill of goods about law enforcement needing 'special tools to fight terror' the terror fighting almost immediately goes by the wayside and the special tools are used to go after people like small time drug criminals) so the idea that there is going to be "collaboration" on this- at least, without sticking backdoors in, which is BY DEFINITION breaking encryption- is not just ludicrous, it's flat-out fucking impossible.

And in the meantime, all this authoritarian-appeasing talk about "we must do something about encryption" is damaging the economy, because not just American businesses but our customers overseas have watched these conversations, and they DEPEND on American products and their built in encryption to protect their data against shit like industrial espionage. Fuck, every time you log into your credit card's website, you're using encryption. We WANT encryption to be strong, and we don't want to think that there is a built in weakness waiting for malicious actors to discover and exploit it.

Silicon Valley's resistance to talk from people who clearly don't understand the topic is not just some tech-libertarian philosophical pose, it is a meat and potatoes business decision. Encryption, the math, the concepts, all of it- is out there and it is not going away. Silicon Valley wants to SELL products to the world that the world will reliably believe are genuinely secure and not compromised out of the box.

Fine. He actually spent that time working on his brilliant plan

To spend several decades masquerading as one of the Senate's most dedicated progressives, to pretend to support marriage equality while others were pontificating about sacred bonds between men and women, to pretend to oppose the iraq war while the democratic profiles in not quite actually courage voted for that turd.... All part of his master phony kibbutz scheme to wait, silently waiting, waiting for his chance. Because he knew, he knew...

He knew that in 2016 it would be HILLARY CLINTON'S TURN to be President, see, and mean old (okay, he was still pretty young, then) Bernie Sanders was already afflicted with Clinton Dee-rangement syndrome, why else would anyone ever dare deny the self-evident inevitable obviousness of Hillary deserving Hillary's turn, once Hillary's turn rolled around.

(Hillary's turn was also in 2008.... but that is not important to our narrative, so we will pretend it never happened)

Where was I. Yes, that wily Bernie Sanders, his fake Kibbutz was an evil underground lair, a secret lab under a volcano under the sea, a sea in fact which was under another volcano, that's how secret and wily that bad ol' Bernie Sanders was, starting his decades-long evil, nasty plot to snatch the 2016 nomination away from its rightful owner.


Boo! Hiss!

Yeah, and then taxpayers are on the hook providing "additional services" to people who work 40+ hrs

A week and are still below poverty level.

So we're subsidising McDonalds, etc. low pay policies and corporate profits. fuck that. If I want to subsidize mcdonalds I will buy one of their shitburgers and do it at the register.

It's not as simple as "provide value" - last time we let the unregulated free market alone determine what labor was worth in a complete regulatory vacuum, 7 year olds were put to work in coal mines and weekends didnt exist.

Isn't it interesting, THIS is what she thinks we should have a "manhattan project" for?

Not, say, finding renewable means to power our civilization, that won't cause our grandchildren to live on an overheated planet.

No, we should throw the entire might of our intellectual power to finding SOME way for cops to be able to search peoples' iphones for naughty behavior- surely, to "stop terror", of course, right?

Because whenever Law Enforcement demands super-new "terror fighting powers", that's what happens.

Half of GD:P is threads about Hillary Clinton, the other half threads about Sen. Sanders' Supporters

Gee, that's odd.

I dont even get into it, about the "l" word, because people here are willfully disingenuous

And obtuse when it comes to labels.

My party affiliation is Democrat, my philosophical orientation is left-libertarian. Which means that, yes, i think government should avoid involving itself in the bodies, bedrooms and bloodstreams of consenting adults, for the most part. Yes, pot should be legal, and abortion, and the terminally ill should have the right to choose a pain-free exit on their own terms.

But fucking TRY to have that conversation rationally and it's "go smoke a flat tax bowl with Milton Friedman and Ayn Rand, youuuuuuuu libertarian poopy-head!"


Nah, I dont take it seriously, not for a long time. But obviously some people, with a bunch of time on their hands, apparently- still do.
