    Heraclitusstudent says

    In the end the younger generation always win. The Millennials are more numerous than boomers, and by they will progressively take over.

    Yes. Eventually all the boomers will die. And then the Millennials take over. What the hell happened to the generation in between?!!! When does "The Forgotten Generation" get to "take over"?

    Sam Harris simply destroys Christianity

    Every word uttered by Sam Harris is nothing short of brilliant.

    Indiana Jones says

    More than anything it is ignorance,

    You cannot refute a single word Harris stated in the video.

    Yes, I agree. Christianity is ignorance, not Sam Harris.

  • On 28 Jan 2015 in Why religion (particularly Christianity) is vile, evil, narcissistic & dangerous, Indiana Jones said:

    More than anything it is ignorance, and the desire to shift responsibility from the self to someone else (Jesus, God, Satan, etc. )

  • On 28 Jan 2015 in Killing kids with cancer, Indiana Jones said:

    This article exemplifies perfectly the stereotypical Marinite (in this case, Tiburonite): Entitlement in all its finest.

    Why not home school? Private school? Move to a place where the kids are all vaccinated?

    No, the whole damn public school needs to change, all 500 students. Reed is K- 2nd. Eventually Tiburon schools filter into larger high schools with students from other school districts and cities, including Larkspur, Corte Madera, Greenbrae, Kentfield, Ross and Belvedere. Do all of these kids need to be vaccinated now? Screw religious beliefs. Screw personal beliefs.

    I am so sorry his son is sick, and I hope he has a strong recovery. At the same time, everyone has a right to their spiritual beliefs & customs and to their own conscience. If we have to vaccinate our children so they can go to public school, then who owns them? It will be similar to the military in that once you sign up, your body is no longer your own, you are government issue.

  • On 27 Jan 2015 in The Winner in the Generational Financial War goes to the....Boomers!, Indiana Jones said:

    If you are a Boomer and you think your life is tough, if you think you've had to work hard for what you have, that there were obstacles you had to overcome, that policies were sometimes set up against your success, that you had to scrimp and save to make ends meet, that you had to go without sometimes, then you have a small taste of what life is like for the generations following you. However hard you had it, can you believe it is actually harder now? i know many Boomers can't see past their shoelaces, but can you at least have some compassion for the generations coming after you who are facing obstacles you never knew existed?

  • On 15 Jan 2015 in Tanzinia bans witch doctors (U.S. still licenses chiropractors and naturopaths), Indiana Jones said:

    If you are equating witch doctoring with chiropractic and naturopathy, then it shows you know very little about either witch doctoring or natural medicine.

    Chiropractic and naturopathy are natural medicines which help people heal naturally, using sources from nature, or increasing movement in the body so it can heal most effectively. There is no voodoo or murder involved. Both go through years of medical training not only in learning about the body and how it functions as well as natural remedies and modalities but also in western or allopathic medicine.

    Witch doctoring, Tanzania style, is based on voodoo which has some murky roots. Any type of "doctoring" that involves murder of humans for their body parts is NOT medicine. It is murder. The so called "witch doctors" are nothing more than evil murderers looking for gain and profit.

    Just to state the obvious again: A chiropractor or naturopath is not a witch doctor. Neither is an aromatherapist, nor an acupuncturist, nor a homeopath.

  • On 8 Jan 2015 in Why Manspreading Is Definitely a Serious Issue, as Explained by the Feminist, Indiana Jones said:

    Hateful comments toward woman are exactly why there is extremely little gender diversity on PatNet. Where are the women on this site? PatNet men ask yourselves this: What woman do you think want to read uneducated, ignorant, catty, small-minded, spiteful, malicious, even hostile comments towards the feminine gender? If a woman (or a man) does comment on the above, they are then attacked.

    It seems some of the guys here prefer blame and victimhood, looking at woman as the opponent and aggressor or objectifying her, vs. understanding a woman is just as human as a man, and to work towards understanding each other, with a goal towards harmony between the male and female. Look how you are being manipulated and how "divide and conquer" is used in this battle you wage against women.

    Thankfully not all men are like the vocal few here, or else how will humanity be able to end wars, solve global economic and ecological problems, even continue on this earth if we despise the 50% of the population that mothers our children?

  • On 10 Dec 2014 in How Come EvilFucks Like Me Always Succeed?, Indiana Jones said:

    Robber Baron Elite Scum says

    But in real life; Villains like me always succeed and never pay for their crimes.

    The world is run by psychopaths and the rules favor psychopaths. The more psychopathic you are, the more you will succeed in a psychopathic world.

    From Psychology Today:

    Psychopathy is among the most difficult disorders to spot. The psychopath can appear normal, even charming. Underneath, they lack conscience and empathy, making them manipulative, volatile and often (but by no means always) criminal. They are an object of popular fascination and clinical anguish: psychopathy is largely impervious to treatment.

    From: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-psychopaths-teach-us-about-how-to-succeed/

    Traits that are common among psychopathic serial killers—a grandiose sense of self-worth, persuasiveness, superficial charm, ruthlessness, lack of remorse and the manipulation of others—are also shared by politicians and world leaders. Individuals, in other words, running not from the police. But for office. Such a profile allows those who present with these traits to do what they like when they like, completely unfazed by the social, moral or legal consequences of their actions.

    How is it that it is morally reprehensible, even criminal, to mistreat an Animal in this country, yet torturing a Human Being is acceptable, sanctioned and our tax dollars support it?

  • On 10 Dec 2014 in CIA Torture Reports: Frozen to Death; Rectal Rehydration, Broken Limbs, Indiana Jones said:

    Evil is evil, no matter what color, stripe, creed, flag, ideology, party, or country. Torture is inhumane and evil.

  • On 25 Nov 2014 in Sexism is Innate, Indiana Jones said:

    Reality says

    Can be done for $1000/mo stipend on top of room, board and car. Heck, can get sex too if the rate is raised to $2000/mo on top of room, board and car. Can probably rotate every 5 years: 20-25 year-old's only!

    Right. Besides having and raising your children and having sex with you, here are some other jobs that women do for FREE within the family, depending on the women's skill set. Includes acting as a bookkeeper, personal shopper, fashion consultant, interior decorator, meal planner, personal chef, maid/cleaning service, personal assistant, counselor, etc. I could go on. How much does it cost for these services over a years time?

    Most women don't want your damn money, guys. From reading these posts on Patnet you'd think there were desperate women everywhere just waiting to pounce on any man driving a Lexus or better. Please. What they want is to be appreciated. They want you to share with them what you have as they share with you what they have. Most women do not make as much as men (another discussion) -- I know there are exceptions, but this is the reality. So they may not have oodles of money to share with you, but they give you their inanimate gifts of time, energy and love, which benefit and enrich your life in ways dollars never will.

    Selfishness attracts selfishness -- what you give you get.

    Meg Whitman , Sarah Palin all have my respect-but that whore in Oklahoma who thinks 1 billion dollar is not enough for being married to someone is just what the modern feminist has come to represent.

    Do you have kids? Raising just one child is a full-time job. More than a full-time job as it is round the clock. If a man wants just one child and doesn't have a wife to have the baby and take care of the child, here are minimum associated costs:

    Female Surrogate to carry and have the baby: $60,000.00
    Live-In Nanny Salary per year : $60,000.00
    60,000 X 19 (18 years of child rearing plus surrogacy) = $1,140,000.00

    The costs go up for more than one child, and if you want an educated Surrogate or Nanny.

    Reminder to Men: Women do all of this for FREE in a marriage. Because they love their husband, and love their children. But this is UNPAID. Especially if the couple made a choice to have the woman be a full-time caregiver, then it makes sense she is compensated for her contribution to the marriage and raising of the family.

    lostand confused says

    Powerful people are going to attract many mates-deal with it or go marry a bus driver.

    So, it is okay for powerful people to commit adultery? We should just expect that?

    the "bias" in barbies and violent video games was put there by the children themselves. sure, companies are pandering to basic instincts the same way they pander to the desire for sweet and fatty foods, but no kid ever ate a salad because he wanted to. kids understand donuts the same way they understand these toys - instantly, without instruction from anyone.

    Yes, I agree with you that kids will instantly respond to these toys.

    Yet, just like sweet and fatty foods, is it right to let children indulge in these without limit? Just as we don't let children drink soda pop and eat candy bars all day, is it not the responsibility of the preceeding "adult" generations to teach the next generation of something more than just their lower, base nature, which is what these games and toys pander to?

    Reality says

    Kids by definition do not create Qualified Demand by themselves, because they do not have money. They only express a Want driven by their own subjective preferences.

    Yes, I agree. Who are actually purchasing these products? It is the adults. Blaming children who often have way too much exposure to marketing that is over-sexualized and fear-based is a cop-out. I don't think some adults want to hear this, but it is the adult's responsibility to raise the child, not the child's responsibility to raise him or her self. Hello. This includes not only parents, but grandparents, relatives, teachers, coaches, friends, neighbors, etc.

    These consumer products simply reflect those archetypes. If you change the product, sales will decline, and other companies will rush in to fill the void.

    These products do not reflect archetypes in a way that is healthy, but in a way that is dehumanizing, objectifying and over-sexualized. Just because another company will make a similar product doesn't make it okay to give these products to children (or adults for that matter).

    Barbies, bratz dolls, etc. and violent video games are two sides of the same biased coin. There is no teaching about the truth of the male and female, both the strengths and weaknesses.

    If you want to teach children about archetypes, teach them the old mythologies, fables and fairy tales that have wisdom and the drama of human nature. Many adults don't understand these old stories, so it can be a joint venture with the children to understand what the stories are symbolically imparting to us.

  • On 19 Nov 2014 in Uber Exec Threatens to "Dig Dirt" and Expose Personal Info on Female Journalis, Indiana Jones said:

    bgamall4 says

    Journalists in America are shills for the government in many instances. They deserve to be researched.

    This journalist doesn't sound like a government shill. She is often a critic of Silicon Valley corporations. If she is silenced, then there may be a domino effect of intimidation of journalists with critical viewpoints of corporate America. And bgmall, there goes the alternative media. Your website could be next.

  • On 19 Nov 2014 in Uber Exec Threatens to "Dig Dirt" and Expose Personal Info on Female Journalis, Indiana Jones said:

    More from the article:

    "Over dinner, he outlined the notion of spending “a million dollars” to hire four top opposition researchers and four journalists. That team could, he said, help Uber fight back against the press — they’d look into “your personal lives, your families,” and give the media a taste of its own medicine.

    Michael was particularly focused on one journalist, Sarah Lacy, the editor of the Silicon Valley website PandoDaily, a sometimes combative voice inside the industry. Lacy recently accused Uber of “sexism and misogyny.” She wrote that she was deleting her Uber app after BuzzFeed News reported that Uber appeared to be working with a French escort service. “I don’t know how many more signals we need that the company simply doesn’t respect us or prioritize our safety,” she wrote.

    At the dinner, Michael expressed outrage at Lacy’s column and said that women are far more likely to get assaulted by taxi drivers than Uber drivers. He said that he thought Lacy should be held “personally responsible” for any woman who followed her lead in deleting Uber and was then sexually assaulted.

    Then he returned to the opposition research plan. Uber’s dirt-diggers, Michael said, could expose Lacy. They could, in particular, prove a particular and very specific claim about her personal life."

    And:

    "At the Waverly Inn dinner, it was suggested that a plan like the one Michael floated could become a problem for Uber.

    Michael responded: “Nobody would know it was us.”"

    From another article:

    "Uber has been subject to a long string of bad press because of its own actions. The Verge reported on the tactics that Uber is using to sabotage Lyft and the questionable jobs that its offering to veterans. Uber also recently offered a promotion in France that allowed passengers to request that a "hot chick" drive them around. This is yet another wild misstep that could have been avoided, but instead it speaks to the bad company culture that story after story has spoken to inside of Uber."

  • On 19 Nov 2014 in Only Silents and Boomers Benefit From Housing Bubble, Indiana Jones said:

    Peter P says

    Amongst my friends, those who own the most homes tend to be Gen-X-ers. Boomers tend to be most affected by divorces.

    Aren't your friends mostly working in tech companies in the SFBA? I am glad they are such successful Gen Xers- truly the Golden Children of Silicon Valley. My experience is different - Boomers and Silents having multiple real estate holdings, with younger generations having none or struggling to hold on to what they have.

    Some Boomers did struggle with divorce or loss of savings due to the crash, so they are not quite as well off as they once were, although almost all of the Boomers I know had enough cushion and rode through the storm fairly intact.

    This can ONLY be stopped by the government.

    From the above article:

    "Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen recently treated the nation to an astonishing lecture on the solution to rising wealth inequality--according to Yellen, low-income households should save capital and buy assets such as stocks and housing."

    There seems to be a large disconnect between the Fed (Yellen) and the middle to lower classes. Their policies seem to harm this group, not help them, and to benefit the upper classes.

    So are you saying the Fed is not a part of the government and so not responsible for saving the masses, only the government can do this? But if the government is corrupted, then what?

    Stop blaming the fed. It's not the fucking federal reserve. Do you think the federal reserve is causing $40 million homes in Dehli India? Do you think the federal reserve is causing housing prices in central London to average $16 million? You think the federal reserve is causing prices in Paris to be $6800 per square meter?

    Working class citizens are being squeezed into their new roles as serfs to the emerging permanent aristocracy.

    Ignorance of this fact is why Republicans keep winning elections. Blaming it on the federal reserve is what keeps people stupid.

    So then, is it the elites? The 0.01%? Can we say the Fed is following the global elite's agenda?

    iwog says

    I don't even think this needs to be debated.

    Stupid people are breeding because women are picking stupid people to have babies with. I'm sure intelligent men want to get laid just as much as the delinquents do but women aren't reproducing with them.

    Anyone says it isn't women who are driving this trend has their head buried pretty deep.

    I guess "intelligent men" aren't so intelligent after all if they can't get laid and reproduce.

    Bellingham Bill says

    But there's no economic reason quality education, health care, or housing has to be in scarcity. These don't consume all that many resources. It's just policy keeping them high-rent sectors.

    I think we're afraid of a populace that doesn't have to work all that hard, like what we have now. Much better for everyone that the working class has to work, and hard.

    The "policy" is to keep people as serfs. Or call them slaves. Same difference.

    If you understand this "policy", then it makes complete sense that the masses are not given basic necessities such as housing, medical care and education that is beyond the basics. They are freely given just enough education for the person to grow up and do the work that is needed. And the rest of the education is brainwashing.

    The thinking goes a little like: Why should the serfs/slaves live in luxury? Why should they have leisure time? And if they do have too much free time, they might figure out that they are slaves and rise up. We need them to spend the few measly dollars that we give them on our products so they we are enriched and we can live a life of leisure.

    It's almost certainly positive sexual selection for the stupidest males that is to blame.

    Idiot men don't wear their pants down below their underwear because it scares girls away. They do it because females in this country are so fucking stupid that they breed with these morons.

    This is twisted to become the female's fault for the population getting dumber. Amazing. When all around are moron males, what choice do the females really have? This is a false choice, but still, somehow in true-to-form-misogynistic-logic, the female is to blame.
