Bottled water distributions begin as lead water poisoning crisis erupts in Newark, New Jersey by magnora7 in news

You realize that it was a government that installed the shitty pipes and private companies providing an alternate means of getting water right?

Besides, they had regulations. They didn't work.

Capitalism has conscience because people have conscience, and more specifically the purchasers do, and can make their own choices. When government is involved choices are reduced, and good ideas can't compete as effectively against government's subsidized stupidity.

The Left's Lies About Donald Trump Is Drowning America by Morphos1759 in The_Donald

[–]x0x7 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

This is why I'm hopeful for the debates. Trump is either completely inarticulate or very articulate. It depends on the day. I'm hoping he's compiled a list of every lie they've told about him and can knock them down and show how they are lies.

We have smirkgate. Years of "russian collusion" to which their isn't even the smallest hint of evidence for. Them saying that pizzagate was fake news by misrepresenting a quote from the DC police chief saying "we didn't find anything" when he actually said "we didn't find anything because we didn't look." Which is ironic because it itself is fakenews. We have journos calling everything they dislike fake news, like specifically pizza gate, because it didn't have "definitive proof" therefore fake news, but then the russian collusion has zero and it isn't fake news?

I'm saddend by the fact that half the country doesn't get any news outside of this cabal because if they got any it would be so easy to demonstrate how unethical and dishonest these people are. It's so blindingly obvious that the only way you couldn't be complaining is if either you are willfully ok with being lied to or if the only thing you hear are lies so you don't know anything but them.

And the media then attacks Trump for calling them the enemy of the people. Well at this point what are they?

I don't even really like Trump. But the way they attack him is what counts and it's completely unethical. Like why not argue against his policies instead of calling his inaugural speech "dark" when it clearly wasn't, accusing him of the non-crime of "colluding with the russians" whilst having no evidence, and calling him a racist with ... no evidence. Like they have honest avenues of attack and they can't be bothered because it is their character to lie.

I prefer it's initial definition given by Mussolini. It's a form of Socialism by Mises's definition of Socialism.

Granted that the 19th century was the century of socialism, liberalism, democracy, this does not mean that the 20th century must also be the century of socialism, liberalism, democracy. Political doctrines pass; nations remain. We are free to believe that this is the century of authority, a century tending to the 'right', a Fascist century. If the 19th century were the century of the individual (liberalism implies individualism) we are free to believe that this is the 'collective' century, and therefore the century of the State.

The Fascist conception of the State is all-embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value. Thus understood, Fascism is totalitarian, and the Fascist State—a synthesis and a unit inclusive of all values—interprets, develops, and potentiates the whole life of a people.

...everything in the state, nothing against the State, nothing outside the state.

Fascism is a religious conception in which man is seen in his immanent relationship with a superior law and with an objective Will that transcends the particular individual and raises him to conscious membership of a spiritual society. Whoever has seen in the religious politics of the Fascist regime nothing but mere opportunism has not understood that Fascism besides being a system of government is also, and above all, a system of thought.

If you are for limited government in any way shape or form you are not a fascist.

Well Julian is screwed either way. I would almost prefer to be getting depositions out of him right now just so he has a voice. Government truly is evil. Imagine being in Julian's shoes right now. You've done nothing wrong toward your fellow man and yet your life is thrown away and there is nothing to loose. Governments treat human life as disposable if it is inconvenient to their hopes to retain power. What it means to dispose of human life or to have your life disposed of is something I don't think most of us can fully comprehend.

Therefore the evil of government goes beyond most people's power for comprehension even if they have all the information.

Considering these shootings were table-top exercises, what is Trump REALLY proposing here? Could it be mental hygiene laws, and with that new study depicting those scary conspiracy theorists as potential terrorists, it sets a worry precedent by Jesus in conspiracy

[–]x0x7 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

What I dislike about these proposed mental hygiene laws in the context of introducing due process is that it's not due process. It would just be pushing a non-due process procedure into the same systems that do due-process currently.

In order for the government to restrict any right, even those not constitutionally protected, it needs to show that you've committed a crime. That is the 6th Amendment. I don't care if the government decided I can't own a pencil or a computer, they couldn't do that without citing a law I've broken and then went through the hassle of proving it and or intimidating me enough with potential punishments that would violate the 8th amendment to get me to incriminate yourself such that I had.

Doing something unconstitutional and strapping the phase due process to it because there is some process does not make it constitutional or right.

Don't like that you can't legally take gun ownership rights away from the mentally ill.. make an amendment.

I don't care if the constitution required you to perform human sacrifice any time you pass new legislation. If you don't want to do that you have to amend the constitution, the human costs irrespective.

There are cost benefit analyses for human costs applicable to all government policies, both for and against. If that were an argument in regards to constitutionality you could do anything.

"Point of Personal Privilege"... the new way to address any assembly....(*spew*) by HeyImSancho in SundogsPlace

[–]x0x7 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

You would know exactly who to ask for answers.

I'd like to train the people to realize that person is themselves. Natural Inalienable Rights is absolutely a thing. The idea is that law exists outside of myself. My job isn't to create law but to match law as close as I can. I'd rather do nothing than interfere with the demands of law. One demand of law is this delineation of rights to each person. An individual can't steel from you without trampling that. The government also can't trample that. If a government steps even slightly into a gray area then it should only do so for existential purposes and the protection of other people's rights. Because almost all government action does do that those are the only things government can pursue.

Not only that but if 70% of people want to hang me they can. That's in the agreement. The other aspect is democratic boarders. I'm not entirely a democratic person. Why should we constantly have a political contest for retaining our freedoms when we know what answer we would like. But people should have a right to choose what system of government they affiliate with. And so if a community on a boarder (or in general) decides they want to leave or decide they want to secede and form a new government, or an individual who's land is directly on the boarder decides he prefers the neighbors form of government then a system would exist to handle those changes. If you live on the US/Canada boarder and decide you want to be in Canada, that should be possible. Now a community changing forms of government would require a 2/3 vote because I believe there is partially a natural right to consistent government if you prefer it but there is a competing natural right for people to affiliate with the form of government they prefer. Those people can move though, but at 2/3 vote for something as drastic moving from one country to another, something is clearly there and it's the right choice for it to change.

My hope is that if this thing exists and can help set up new standards for how boarders are drawn that it will decrease war. Most boarders are a consequence of war and not from being such an effective nation that people want to join it. It completely changes the incentives for nations that want more land.

In some ways philosophy then dictates what can be done domestically, but a different philosophy governs the boarder. It could almost be said to be two separate governments with different operating principles. The boarder views itself as having absolute power and considers only the existential needs of the people and their safety. Because drugs would be legal domestically and the movement of drugs into the united states would be an existential threat to the nation, the existence of customs would exist. Boarder crossings could be quite invasive. Also because patent and copyright law wouldn't exist it could go beyond drugs.

Edit: Best part. No capital punishment except for corruption. Any misapplication of government authority by its agents, if it benefits the agent, caused harm, and was clear that the agent knew what he was doing.. that's a hanging. Big or small.

"This coming generation will likely never eat as much food as their parents had."

Well then fuck food. Food doesn't work then. If food actually worked we would always have more food than prior. If we do things that are negative to the production of food in our fuck you to food then that's still food's fault for there being less of it.

You will likely not earn as much in part because we are less capitalistic and more socialistic. That lowers real incomes. Also because of the federal reserve. Low interest rates cause a miscalculation in which projects are most productive. It results in a lot of semi-makework in the market. That's why it raises employment. But like all makework you end up tired with less reward despite the effort.

What if there are different levels of intelligence and contentiousness. I can act on a rock and manipulate it and contemplate it.

A rock can't contemplate manipulating me. I thereby am in the most prominent position to act being more intelligent that the other.

If the universe is infinite then physical arraignments that are said to be able to take action exist and exist in all degrees that is the distribution of stages of intelligence, until the maximal kind of intelligence possible. Therefor God exists.

Now sufficiently highly intelligent things are not only able to act on less intelligent systems in meaningful ways, but they can also manipulate them to take on forms that are more intelligent. A processor is more intelligent than a pile of sand. It got that way because we organized it. Similarly you being more intelligent than your children can influence them to be more intelligent later on.

Now a rock cannot direct anything to become more intelligent even though it can maintain its space using electron interactions and can maintain its structure with a structure on internal election interactions, something that hydrogen, less organized can't do.

Now you can similarly do the things a rock can. Higher intelligence things do not lose the abilities of lower intelligence things.

Determining the cpu level might be expensive per page render and any means that isn't isn't going to be very fine resolutioned and therefore would be resonant.

A solution would be to have a rolling array of the timestamps of each of the last 15 renders. If the oldest of the last 15 is very new then let the page cache longer. That's assuming you have a cache in the first place though.

Then basically you can set a maximum frequency that your rendering engine will work at that you know your cpu can't surpassed anyway so you might as well not queue the task, and just defer to cache for one more request.

If you were using nodejs I could show you how to do it.

BTW, I'm not a country boy. Anyone can make efforts to lower their reliance on the state, and even on commercial services. My view, less political, is that it's good to prepare for seasons without government or commercial support. Just a little planning and what would be a disaster for one is a cake walk for you.

A bit strange but I have discovered the best way to do this is to set shorter seasons to go without these things. Before long the infrastructure is in place that you really can go without what others would call a necessity. It just really gives you peace of mind. Between rain collection and owning a backflushable filter (not expensive things) I will never have to worry about water ever.

Also the issue with flouride is that people have said some dubious things to get attention in conspiracy circles. Here is what is certainly true. A lifetime of exposure increases bone brittleness so when you are older you are more likely to have breaks. It has absolutely no utility because fluoride as a dental treatment is supposed to be topical, is only really useful for a kind of tooth decay common in 9 year olds who will get new teeth anyway, and toothpaste already has fluoride in it.

Also if we go to a resturant and I order $10 of food, and you order $7 of food, but I pay 3/4 of the bill, but we adjust it so it's more fair that's not really a gift to me.

21st Century Fox was recently acquired by The Walt Disney Company. Now only 5 companies control 95% of US media. Where does it end? by magnora7 in Collusion

That's why the shannon entropy forumla is so great. It tells us in somewhat more objective terms when a market is too restricted. Compared to complaining about random arbitrary actions inconsistently like Microsoft including internet explorer in their OS, (yet android provides some chrome variant and several other apps). Microsoft was a monopoly when it hit a certain market share, not when a free browser came with it.

With how arbitrarily we apply these rules a company has to be politically unpopular before anything can be done.

Then we need to adjust how we take care of monopolies. "Breaking them up" geographically doesn't work. Then you just have monopolies in different regions but no real options for consumers.

What that shannon entropy really does is calculate how predictable someone's choice is. If in a particular geographic area you can predict who they will end up using then it a monopoly.

My idea is to require them to give free advertising to competitors for a period.

U.S. May Outlaw Messaging Encryption Used By WhatsApp, iMessage And Others, Report by dcjogger in news

[–]x0x7 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It's funny because technology keeps solving the same problem over and over using underlying technology that's already solved it to do it.

The problem of getting text in one place to another is what, text messaging, email, facebook messanger, whatsapp, imessage, telegraph.. are. It's also what TCP/IP and UDP are. It's also what HTTP is.

So how are the going to distinguish between "messaging" apps and technologies that do messaging but don't brand themselves as user-focused. Is using TLS with http going to be illegal?

Technically all text messaging does or whatsapp does at the end result level is allows you to send text to an identifier (username or phone number). Well if I have an identifier (ip address), I could technically receive messages over http the same as whatsapp. The only difference is the http is not typically used that way. Am I allowed to do that with TLS?

Oh sure, whatsapp has a UI that displays the message, but is it the UI that's illegal?

So I've studied a few market shares in my life. For top 5, 95% is expected.

What would the top 5 browser share be?

What would the top 5 search be?

What would the top 5 lighter manufacturers be?

More important is the top 1 and top 2. When the top 1 is 90% then you have a problem. That is search, and soon to be browsers.

Use the shannon entropy formula to determine how restricted a market is. For example if a market was 80,10,5,5. I would gladly give that up for, 60,34,4,2.

The first has 1.0219280948873624
The second has 1.2699844663844981

I'm for passing laws where we hang the cops. Misconduct with government resources is not a game. Government is capable of the greatest abuse and it's need to be handled responsibly goes beyond any other institution.

I'm for this for elected officials, buerocrates. police. If you work for the government, you have to obey the law. At the very least you have to obey the law with the resources you're given professionally.

Well, they are reckless people who don't understand economics or business, but pretend they do.

Sanders once said that children are starving in child labor camps because you have too many brands of water to choose from.

Let's point out that most of wall street does not sell the top product. A few of them do. If Sander's had his way most of those companies would go bankrupt to the benefit of the biggest corporations, because product diversity is bad.

Anti-work by Snow in quotes

[–]x0x7 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I spent a lot of time not working. It was pretty unfulfilling and I spent all the time worrying about problems that didn't matter.

I take it you work, hence why you are resentful towards it and try to push that it's not normal.

You should try not working. It's retarded.


When you don't want to work, that becomes your job. There's a lot of over time, not many days off.
Sometimes it just gets hard to explain to people that I know, or kids who come to shows, I just don't want to talk about the office today.


That or you could learn frugality, and fill almost 100% of your time with work but take it easy, and you will have an abundance past your needs and life is pretty rewarding. Having more security means you can be more picky with what you want to do. That means when you are infrugal you are just fucking yourself over. Then you can work fewer hours in your day job and spend more time working on what you enjoy. But you have to make what you enjoy partially pay for itself to decrease the comparative cost of switching one hour for another, otherwise being frugal won't exactly save you hours (it will but not as many).

Everything he says is scientifically wrong. It's like he goes out of his way to do it. I think he adopted a school of thought that you have to misdescribe things to dumb them down to others but often its no more simple and doesn't fit. You could always just tell people less rather than make shit up.

But it's also little things. In response to the song flat-line that talks about nasa negatively and claims that the Earth is flat, Neil attempted to prove that the Earth is round . A worthy and praiseworthy thing to do. But he said that because the Earth is round and it is spinning and was once liquid, as a result when the Earth formed it was stretched out in the middle. And because of that the elevation of sea level is higher near the equator.

What is wrong... The oceans are an independent liquid body and experience that stretching independent of the shape of the Earth (mostly) and so you would see that effect regardless.

Every single time there is something wrong whenever he opens his mouth.

(Yes I know that the non-uniform shape of the Earth makes he gravitational field slightly less uniform but that effect would be tiny compared to what the oceans experience through centrifugal force. And before you call me out on "centrifugal" at least my logic isn't fundamentally wrong like his is.)

But the sad thing about his peacocking how smart he is with fake science was that it was just deflecting the point of the song, which is that because government runs the science program known as NASA everything NASA does is a military project. "I don't have to address that if just brag how smart I am."

So I would suggest smoothing the chart (with your mind) where the spikes in the tenth hour chart correspond with the hour chart.

Snowden. Warns secret program could be used for political abuse.

Obama administration uses it for political abuse against Trump. Trump is mad about Snowden's warnings.

Assange. Does free opposition research. Trump gives him a life sentence.

He and Feinstein must be siblings because Feinstein went out and defended these programs and then when she found out that congress was being spied on she got really upset about it. These people only dislike these programs when they get spied on.
