Lawmakers in the US state of Oklahoma have passed a bill that would make the act of performing an abortion a crime. (BBC)
ABORTION IS A RIGHT. FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU TO HELL.
Guess what the GOP thinks? YES! THE SAME THING!
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Buckling under conservative pressure, House Republicans pulled a legislative sleight of hand Tuesday and stripped a provision from the annual defense policy bill that would have required young women to sign up for a military draft.
The decision triggered an outcry from Democrats, who cast the move as a GOP attempt to avoid a contentious vote on equality for women. But GOP lawmakers argued much more study is required before reversing the longstanding prohibition on including women in the Selective Service.
Afraid of a little fire scarecrow? YES you MOTHERFUCKING ARE! Yeah the GOP doesn't want women anywhere except barefoot and pregnant (unless they're ugly then they just prefer them dead.)
If they had a valid position they shouldn't have been afraid to have it stand up to debate. But no. They knew that if the debate even started it would have looked bad for them. This coming from the party that wants to refuse contraception, abortion, and family planning for women, regardless of rape or a woman's health.
Fuck, given their policies you'd think they'd want to send EVERY welfare mom to the military, rather than stifle the very mention thereof.
GOP the party of misogyny! YAYS!
Seriously, she IS better off.
A woman in the United Arab Emirates has been fined and deported after being found guilty of breaching her husband's privacy, reports say.
Local media said the woman checked her husband's mobile phone after becoming suspicious he was having an affair. (BBC)
So ya think HE would have been found guilty? Oh HELLS TO THE NAW. Because in back-assward UAE Men are everything and women are shit.
Fuck the Saudi's.
And that would be? A TOTAL FUCKING INTOLERANCE OF LGBT.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Under fire from the governor and many Republican legislators, the Mississippi Department of Education now says it won't follow new federal guidance on use of bathrooms and locker rooms by transgender students.[..]
Asserting that federal officials are trying to "blackmail" Mississippi, the senators wrote that, "Dr. Wright made the decision to usurp the board's authority and unilaterally issue the policy decision to acquiesce to the illegal demands of the federal government. For this, the superintendent must be held accountable."
That followed a letter Tuesday by 11 Republican House members asking Wright to reverse the department's position or resign.
A group of 51 Muslim countries has blocked LGBT rights organisations from attending a United Nations conference on Aids next month.
Egypt, representing the Organization for Islamic Co-operation, wrote to the General Assembly president to object to the participation of 11 groups. (BBC)
Hmmm, similarities? Let's see: Marginalize LGBT, check! Threatening to get your way, check! Oppressing women and negating their position. The only thing missing here is beheading.
Yep, America, the melting pot. We're not against adopting the very worst the world has to offer because it suits us.
I recommended using Dreamweaver to a friend who needed to throw together some nested tables in HTML. Yeah, it's like using a sledge hammer to open pistachios but it DOES get the job done with ease.
Until it crashes and locks on you and you can't start it back up without some registry magicks.
Anyway, in his quest for a solution (viva la powers of Google) he came across some of the best comments hidden away in a murky corner of the net. And so I present to you the best comments of dreamweaver-crashes-and-wont-open-again-how-to-fix-it. Take it away my HTML based blog!
It's not a bug, it's an undocumented feature to keep coders from writing bad CSS.
Or, you know, you could just not use Dreamweaver and use a real API like Visual Studio.
Or you could know that Visual Studio isn't an API.
Real developers use vim and their brains
I thought real developers used notepad and a cmd box.
I got ninja'd by K. Real developers use notepad. I used notepad for 8 years.
vim nothing. Use the original vi or GTFO. Also, Emacs is for babies.
Sounds like a few people go owned... Nice read tho
Yeah you really need to ditch Dreamweaver.
If you like the IDE feel and are on OSX, you can try WebStorm otherwise stick to Textmate ^_^
I MEANT IDE. Not API.
Though you could technically say Visual Studio - API for .net apps.
Notepad++ is my IDE. It hasn't corrupted a CSS file yet. ;)
With IDEs like this who needs enemies?
Thank you! Thank you! Try the soy-veal! I'm here all lightyear!
Wow, it's hard to imagine how an asshole like this can even live with himself. It's a strong reminder that shitbags like this have always existed to demonstrate how revolting humans can be.
Iran has arrested eight people working for online modelling agencies deemed to be "un-Islamic", the prosecutor of Tehran's cybercrimes court has said.
The arrests are part of an operation that has seen women targeted for posting photos showing them not wearing headscarves on Instagram and elsewhere.[..]
"The persons who reformed their behaviour after receiving a notice did not face any judicial action, and eight out of the 29 have been arrested," he said.
A spokesman of the Iranian Centre for Surveying and Combating Organised Cyber Crimes, Mostafa Alizadeh, said: "Sterilising popular cyberspaces is on our agenda.
"We carried out this plan in 2013 with Facebook, and now Instagram is the focus," he added, saying fresh operations would begin in the coming days. (BBC)
So the "crime" of a woman posing without a headscarf for a picture is prison? SERIOUSLY DON'T YOU FUCKTARDS HAVE ANYTHING BETTER TO DO? Like maybe work on peace? Or science? Or even just getting along with the rest of the world? Arresting women for taking a natural and NORMAL picture of themselves is what you're proud of?
You're a fucking idiot, you know that Mosty? A nasty, evil, scummy, shitbag too. Let's not forget that. Too bad your idiot leaders can't help you realize that.
Or a total lack thereof.
So, seen on the roadside the other day, grubby panhandler, complete with vermin infested beard. It's early afternoon, he's on the median looking down at his toes, torn cardboard clutched in dirt smeared fingers.
The sign was upside down.
"Good Gods man, have some pride!" my passenger commented.
That was a joke. It's supposed to be a play on the words "Safety First". I suppose I could have gone with Safety - Foots! But that's not better. Anayway...
On the way home I see a young girl, likely in her teens, pushing your typical, gas-powered lawn mower. Ok, she's got shorts on, but hey, she also has on hearing protection. Good job, save that hearing (although I mowed the lawn for almost 10 years and it didn't impact my hearing, the tests said so.)
Then I notice that she's barefoot. Uh, what? Barefoot? Mowing the lawn? And she was stepping up close to the mower, trying to shove it over some tree roots.
Yeah I drove the heck away before the next "step". Literally. Sheesh. Ok, you'll have great hearing, but your ballet career will be over. That's for damn sure.
I hate stupid people. They just fuck everything up.
An Italian economist says his flight was delayed after a fellow passenger saw him working on a differential equation and alerted the cabin crew.
Guido Menzio was taken off and questioned by agents who did not identify themselves, after the woman next to him said she felt ill.
He showed them what he had been writing and the flight eventually took off - more than two hours late (BBC)
So basically some dumb cunt mixed up Arabic and Math and decided to freak the fuck out. Net result was an entire plane full of people lost two hours of their lives. The good news in all this was that the Dumb Cunt who didn't know what an equation was (and probably flunked high school) had to leave even later than the poor mathematician and the rest of the flight. She still probably thinks, even now, that there was EVIL involved.
Yes bitch, Evil. The same evil that flys the fucking plane and lets you drive a car, use a cell phone and get a mammogram. IT'S MATH HO, IT'S JUST FUCKING MATH.
Because even though they weren't late-term aborted, conservatroids don't wanna pay for their upkeep, because you know, welfare.
Republicans from states at greatest risk, such as Florida, Texas, Louisiana and Georgia, have been slow to endorse Obama's more than 2-month-old request for $1.9 billion to battle the virus, which causes grave birth defects. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention currently reports more than 470 cases in the continental U.S., all so far associated with travel to Zika-affected areas. (AP)
Zika won't get anyone elected, so the politicians don't fucking care. Even in conservative states that are the most at risk, the tradeoff between funding prevention/protection vs. the inevitable results isn't a matter of concern because FACE IT, they won't be the ones in power when the shit really hits the fan.
So a decade from now, when all these incapable youngsters are living off medicaid, somehow it will STILL be Obama's fault. Even though it wasn't.
And lo... it was given.
So after going to PAX East I received a survey which came from an anonymous source but was clearly sent by Intel (I feel for the poor person who had to type in all those email addresses.)
Anyway they wanted to know what I liked about PAX, why I went, am I a builder. Based on my responses the survey went on to ask what type of Intel CPUs I liked and what I might consider buying in the future. It also asked me if I would recommend Intel to others. When I answered "maybe" it asked what Intel would need to do to make me recommend them.
This was my answer...
Hard to say, people generally feel really strongly about AMD vs. Intel. People who buy Intel generally like that it's pretty plug and play and is supported by most major brands (Windows, NVidia, etc.). People who buy AMD generally feel like they're getting more for their money. Intel people (that I know) don't overclock. AMD people (that I know) overclock. It's like NVidia vs. ATi, just a difference. Most people aren't on the fence about these things UNLESS Tom's Hardware declares a clear price/performance winner.
I like Intel, don't get me wrong, and most of the time I go for them for the reasons stated above. But if AMD knocks one out of the park in terms of performance and price, I sure as shit ain't gonna turn that down.
So yeah, color me Intel, but not 100%. As for convincing others? I tell them to go to Tom's Hardware and do the research themselves. I don't want to be blamed if they aren't happy with their choice.
See if you can find the hidden bullshit in the block quote below...
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- A Pennsylvania high school student said she was barred from attending her prom because she wore a suit rather than a dress.
Aniya Wolf said she's a lesbian who has worn a shirt and pants for all three years she has attended Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, according to WHTM-TV (http://bit.ly/1T5K6lV ). She and her mother, Carolyn Wolf, said the family got a last-minute email saying girls had to wear dresses to attend Friday's prom.[..]
The school released a statement Saturday saying the dress code was sent to parents three months ago specifying girls must wear formal dresses, and those who didn't follow it would not be admitted. A reminder was sent to all students on March 6, the school said.
"Bishop McDevitt will continue to practice acceptance and love for all of our students. They are tremendous young men and women," the school said. "We simply ask that they follow the rules that we have put into place."
Did you miss it? I didn't. See the part about "acceptance and love" means that students are the ones accepting the rules handed down, legal or not. And as for love, what they really mean is that they would LOVE anyone who doesn't accept and abide by their rules to go the fuck away.
Bishop McDevitt is an embarrassment in 2016. Mandating that females must wear gowns and males must wear pants isn't just fucking rude, it's wrong. Their statement about love and acceptance is a lie. And not even a good one.
It's sad to watch Israel eating its own. Especially when all they're doing it pointing out the obvious.
Maj-Gen Yair Golan said on the eve of Thursday's annual Holocaust Day that he detected trends in Israeli society suggestive of "nauseating processes" that occurred in 1930s Nazi Germany.
Mr Netanyahu said the comments were outrageous, cheapened the Holocaust and caused harm to Israel. (BBC)
Building ghettos to keep the "undesirables" out. Removing their rights. Herding them onto buses where everyone is checked going in and out. Staving them. Paying them less. Destroying homes. Detaining them without cause.
That's what Israel is doing to the Arabs that live in their nation, including those with Israeli citizenship. It is very much an echo of history, the only difference being that the Arabs are fighting back, something the Jews in Europe didn't get a chance to do.
Israel wants a war with Palestine. They want to kill or eliminate every non-Jew (and then the next step will be to target the secular Jews). And most of all they DON'T want anyone to draw attention to the parallels. Most certainly not one of their own.
Did anyone call the Better Business Bureau yet on this fucktard?
ASHEVILLE, N.C., May 6 (UPI) -- A tow truck driver refused to help a disabled woman whose car was stranded on a North Carolina highway because she had a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker.
Ken Shupe of Shupee Max Towing, based in Traveler's Rest, S.C., said "something came over" him Monday when he saw the bumper sticker supporting the Democratic presidential contender on the back of Cassy McWade's car, which was stranded after a crash on Interstate 26 in Asheville, N.C.
"Something came over me, I think the Lord came to me, and he just said get in the truck and leave," Shupe told WLOS-TV. "And when I got in my truck, you know, I was so proud, because I felt like I finally drew a line in the sand and stood up for what I believed."
Proud? Because you left a disabled woman WHO YOU KNEW WAS DISABLED BECAUSE YOU WERE TOLD THAT ON THE PHONE on the road without help? I hope you don't really consider yourself religious because any shitstain that abandons someone in need, especially when it's their paid FUCKING job to help, is going straight to fucking hell. And sooner rather than later because I'm going to bet that nobody, not even The Trump himself is going to support you on this.
Ken, you're an asshole, plain and simple. Doesn't matter if she had a Hitler for President sticker on her bumper, you don't get to fucking discriminate against them.
Go suck it shitbag.
Actually, the GOP does love us, more specifically they'd love us to die.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The federal government announced sweeping new rules Thursday for electronic cigarettes that will for the first time require the devices and their ingredients to be reviewed, a mandate that could offer protection for consumers and upend a multibillion dollar industry that has gone largely unregulated.[..]
House Republicans are already pushing back. A House spending committee last month approved industry backed legislation that would prohibit the FDA from requiring retroactive safety reviews of e-cigarettes that are already on the market and exempt some premium and large cigars from those same regulations.
The legislation's chief author, Republican Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma, called the announcement an example of the "nanny-state mentality."
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have long enjoyed a close relationship with the tobacco industry, which has already given more than $1.8 million to members of Congress this election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Like that? The tobacco industry has found another way to administer an addictive chemical to young and desperate people and instead of WANTING to protect the population, Uncle Tom Cole wants to protect the PROFITS FIRST, because MONAY MONAY MONAY. Really? A totally unregulated industry that allows the rapid delivery of chemicals through the lungs and EXISTING E-CIGS SHOULD ALL BE EXEMPT? WHAT THE FUCK ASSHOLE? It's as if the whole tobacco industry debacle of the past decade is completely lost on conservatives. They don't care about the people who died from cancer, or the poor who waste their food money on ciggs. They only fucking care about the profit which can be diverted to their own pockets.
It fucking boggles my mind why anyone would vote for someone who doesn't give two shits about if they live or die. But somehow the GOP manages to convince people that it's in their interest to give their money and votes to a party that wants both their money and their life. At least regular robbers usually give you a choice.
So if a woman is forced to WAIT by her government before she has an abortion, what if MEN also had to wait before getting it up and resulting in more pregnancies? Huh? Huh?
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- A South Carolina representative's last-ditch effort to require a 24-hour waiting period for a Viagra prescription in the state has failed.
Rep. Mia McLeod has said her bill was meant as a tongue-in-cheek rebuke of South Carolina's abortion laws. It includes the waiting period and counseling about celibacy that are also required before women get an abortion.
Yeah no. The Dick is sacred. The Cunt, on the other hand, is like a fucking welcome mat for everyone, including shitbags that can't even get pregnant. Frankly I'd love to see only women who CAN get pregnant vote for or against abortion laws, since they're the ones being affected. Getting a man's/geriatric granny's opinion on what a child-bearing woman should or should not have done to her body is like the tobacco industry deciding on anti-smoking laws. Oh wait that's the next post.
