Coding Causes Capitale Gains taxes...

Yes, you need to go track through On Vox: A Fine Rant For Colleagues To Read - but you need to read the rant, and the underlying rants, with an eye on the obvious IDEOLOGICAL DEVIATIONALISMS!!!

ok, so I still have a fondness for phrases like
...doesn't need to be told how symmetric multiprocessing with traditional threads and locks is the shadow of death, the mindkiller, a road of bones down which nothing but torment and pain will you ever find.
Since it is so OBVIOUSLY liberal code word for imposing excessive and brutal capitale gains taxes...

And we know where that threat unwinds...

Obamanationists Destroy Acadamia For Evil Liberal Media!

UnNamedGodLessSoulLessCanukiStanWannabe noted:
Additionally, there was no significant difference between the groups in thinking Colbert was funny, but conservatives were more likely to report that Colbert only pretends to be joking and genuinely meant what he said while liberals were more likely to report that Colbert used satire and was not serious when offering political statements. Conservatism also significantly predicted perceptions that Colbert disliked liberalism. Finally, a post hoc analysis revealed that perceptions of Colbert's political opinions fully mediated the relationship between political ideology and individual-level opinion.
[ cf The Irony of Satire ]
Well, there you are!!!

GodlessSoulLessObamanations in CommunistNationalSocialistMarxistFascistLiberal Acadamia PROOVING that they do not accept that
Number Theory IS JUST A THEORY!!!
and thus that their so called proof of is merely their own admittance that they hate the GUACAMOLE!!!

And are In League With the Satanist Cultists of the UTAH GOP in their failure to correctly divine the TRUTHIERNeff of the Colbert Report!!!

Will we have to bury our dead alone?

It's the new political correctness, I gather, not to ever suggest that anyone who's ever served in the military is ever capable posing a threat to law-enforcement officers or the general public. That was the whole upshot of the recent fake controversy over the DHS report on domestic terrorism.

In the meantime, what do you know: Yet another shooting of police officers by an angry and paranoid man with a military background. And just like the last one, this one believed Obama was going to come get his guns:

[ cf Two more officers killed by a right-wing extremist with a military background. But don't insult our veterans! ]
For those of you outside of the veterans community. I will try to be POLITE.

For those of you who have spent time bringing a memeber of the tribe off the wall... and this is not the first time around the Veteran's Community has been abandoned by the Pro-War Types - we should all start working our networks again to make sure that folks are coping.

Yes, I get it. The Pro-War Types and their psuedo conservative fellow travellors LIKE the sound of being pro-war, but just as they are not planning to get into the Danger Zone, they have not been all that useful at helping our formerly citizen soldiers make the transition back to a peace time rear area footing.

So Yeah. Once again the Tribe has been abandoned....

May I remind folks of Jonathan Shay's Achilles in Vietnam, as a nice starting place to look at the problems of the 'the betrayal of character'. Traditionally it has been relegated to the topic space:
Unpleasant side effect of the recent Military Hostile Fire Pay Zone Sequences
But there is that other side of 'spitting on the vets' that is the dark crawlie underbelly....

The Pro-War Types who need to deal with their own War Guilt and Survivors Guilt, having not put themselves in Harms Way. That process leads to an even more disgusting form of dehumanizing vets - turning them into the mere pawns of the 'class warfare' so trendy amongst the Pro-War Types.

So excuse me if I do not OFFER any polite safe 'drieuxish' play words.

My Tribe is Still BLEEDING.

UPDATE: corrected typo in subject line...

Teach Me How To Play Nice with PsuedoCons?

Remember what that bulletin was intended for? To give law-enforcement officers in the field a heads-up about the potential risk posed by right-wing extremists, which is enhanced considerably by the presence of a military background.

Too bad the wounded egos of a bunch of loudmouthed demagogues who insist on a ridiculously tendentious reading of the factual contents of a serious domestic-terrorism report are more important than the lives of those law-enforcement officers.

No, seriously....

What is the obligations of those who support sending the troops into a hostile fire payzone, and the need to make sure that they get home in as much of one piece as the trooper can muster....

I can appreciate that for PsuedoCons who have no real experiences with the reality of Asymetric Warfare it may be fun to blather about their commitment to Seccession.

But Asymetric Warfare kiddies is SCARRIER when you are out of the Military - away from the pleasan safety of knowing that the ballistic grade battle rattle is not merely a fashion statement....

What if the nation were to criminalize sending troopers in for strictly domestic poitical gain?

Happy Thot

Walked over the hill for lunch with co-workers.

Before going back to coding coughed up chunks of my lungs...

Now it feels so much better...

Must go hiking more often...
