Will Trump beat Hillary (if she is the nominee?)

By Blurtman   71 comments, latest 25 minutes ago

Trump will blast Hillary's backing of job destroying trade deals, which will appeal to a good deal of the Rust Belt electorate. Hillary has a loyal following of women with a grudge man blaming career women, and uninformed African Americans. She also carries the close minded reflexively liberal and PC crowd. But can Trump bring on board enough of the anti-Hillary Democrat leaning independents and progressive Democrats, or Democrats of any stripe that just will not vote for a neocon warmonger with bizarre large bottom hiding clothes. Grab the popcorn.

A Very Kind Man Who Gave Me A Job Almost 20 Years Ago Is Now A Facebook Friend

By ohomen171   posted 6 days ago

Everyone Facebook is amazing. On September 11, 1996 I arrived in San Jose, California on a Greyhound bus. I checked in at the Plaza Hotel near the bus station. I desperately needed a job. When you were 52 years of age, employment was hard to find. I was low on cash and found that bus drivers would let you ride for free if you were broke. I got on one bus and plead poverty. The driver was this very nice but very tough African-American lady. She told me that there was no excuse for me to be in these circumstances. She told me that she was going to give me a ride to the Veteran's Center in downtown San Jose...

Rise in CO2 has Greened Planet Earth and has been a Positive

By Ironman   #politics  #globalwarming   31 comments, latest 4 days ago

So much for the Alarmists saying that CO2 is going to harm the planet. Carbon dioxide emissions from industrial society have driven a huge growth in trees and other plants. A new study says that if the extra green leaves prompted by rising CO2 levels were laid in a carpet, it would cover twice the continental USA. Climate sceptics argue the findings show that the extra CO2 is actually benefiting the planet. The new study is published in the journal Nature Climate Change by a team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries. It is called Greening of the Earth and its Drivers, and it is based on data from the Modis and AVHRR instruments which have been...

Slash (the / character) is now allowed in patrick.net post titles like this one

By Patrick   1 comment, latest 6 days ago

The fix was to alter the nginx.conf from this: rewrite ^/([^/]+)$ /index.php?title=$1 last; # specific post to this: rewrite ^/(.+)$ /index.php?title=$1 last; # specific post Let me know if this introduced any new bugs. The idea is that if a specific file exists on the server, it will be used: if (-f $request_filename) { # if file exists (like /js/bootstrap.min.js) then use it, don't rewrite break; } If the file does not exist, we redirect to /index.php and give it the characters after the slash to look up as a post title. To be honest, I'm still mystified as to why there was a bug in the first place. The slash in any post title is url-encoded to %2f (mouse...

Actually, your boss cannot restrict your right to free speech

By Patrick   20 comments, latest 1 day ago

http://www.businessinsider.com The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a New Jersey police officer who was demoted after his boss mistakenly believed he was involved in a political campaign can still bring a lawsuit alleging a violation of free speech rights. The 6-2 ruling said Jeffrey Heffernan could file a First Amendment claim against the city of Paterson, New Jersey, even if he wasn't actually taking sides in the local mayoral race. Heffernan claimed he was a victim of retaliation after other officers saw him picking up a campaign sign and talking to campaign workers. It turns out Heffernan was really picking up...

How low is the bar, really? US Senate Candidates from CA

By turtledove   18 comments, latest 2 days ago

I just received my California "Official Voter Information Guide." So, I'm thumbing through the statements of the senate candidates and one really stands out above all the others. The statement of Democratic candidate, Ms. Massie Munroe. Her photo appears normal. Perhaps even attractive. Nothing unusual there. She says, "My candidacy represents the United States Constitution, the only contract between the people of America and America's government 'Of the people, By the people, For the people' to be restored and strengthened in America and extended to the UN as a contract between all people of our world through US leadership and diplomacy. International bankers, multinational corporate leaders, militaries and police must all 100% obey, comply with the Constitution of the US/UN...

Last week it was 60% and this week it's 40%

By Tenpoundbass   8 comments, latest 1 day ago

Next week it will less than 20% of the Delegates needed for Trump to secure the nomination and avoid a contested convention. Funny how math works like that. Though last week, the MSM establishment was making it sound like Trump would be at a constant 60% uphill battle to get to the number. When as he knocks them down the bar keeps getting lower and lower. And Booger eating Ted gets shut out.

Establishment Stunned As Trump Gains Wealthy, Well-Educated Voters

By Ironman   #politics  #trump   6 comments, latest 1 day ago

Wealthy, well-educated voters helped carry Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump to victory in this week’s East Coast primaries, a demographic the famously blunt-spoken billionaire had struggled to attract in the past. His sweep of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut and Rhode Island on Tuesday included wins in some of the richest and best-educated counties in the country - like Fairfield County, Connecticut, and Newport County, Rhode Island - and added to victories in his more traditional strongholds of white working-class neighborhoods. Exit polls from Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Maryland showed Trump winning about half of Republican voters with college degrees, and over half of Republican voters making more than $100,000 a year. “On its face, it is hard to believe he’d be...

Kasich concedes Indiana to Cruz so Cruz can have a

By Tenpoundbass   9 comments, latest 5 days ago

The Establishment creeps really thinks they Own votes. People liked Kasich for what ever reason. I don't think those that liked Kasich will see an analog in Cruz. I predict most of Kasich's voters will now stay home, and the ones that defect. I'm here to put it to you now, that Trump will realize more defectors from Kasich that Cruz will. We need election overhaul. If you drop out, you name get's scratched off the ballot. If you're on the national ballot you're on all states ballots(in a national election) and if drop out of any state's races, then you're out of the whole national process. Final rule Candidates and their PACS, nor party is allowed to contact regional...

Prince Music Was Tedious Pop Crap. How Can Anyone Care That He's Dead?

By DieBankOfAmericaPhukkingDie   28 comments, latest 4 days ago

Really I listen all manner of music all day - mostly college-band FM radio - and still run vinyl and CDs. Never would have occurred to me to buy a Prince disc. What I've heard of it sounds like techno-inflected dance music tossed off by bored sidemen sight reading charts on a hourly rate.

Bernie Sanders: Im losing to Hillary because poor people dont vote

By Ironman   #politics  #cluelessBernie   3 comments, latest 5 days ago

Bernie Sanders knows just who to blame for his losses to Hillary Clinton: poor people. Asked by Chuck Todd of NBC’s “Meet the Press” why he’s behind in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sanders replied, “Well, because poor people don’t vote.” He added, “That’s just a fact. That’s a sad reality of American society.” “If we can significantly increase voter turnout so that low-income people and working people and young people participated in the political process…this country would be radically transformed,” he said. http://nypost.com/2016/04/24/b #politics #cluelessBernie

Why is the Hillary crowd so anti-Trump?

By thunderlips11   29 comments, latest 3 days ago

If Trump is so weak, why beat on him constantly - you ought to be encouraging Republicans to vote for Trump in the Primaries. And, if Trump wins the nominees but the GOP Insiders choose another candidate, Hillary is a shoo-in; plus, the Republican Party won't recover from the anti-voter shenanigans for quite a while. Kasich, Romney, Ryan, or Cruz is a guaranteed win for Hillary. I can't see any reason why a Democratic voter would be opposed to Trump, unless they secretly believe that Trump is a great candidate.
