    Love the articles comments:

    "The progressive propaganda ministry - Obama, Holder, Jackson, Holder, DeBlasio & the entire Congressional Black CauASS! They've created this!"

    Yes Obama and the Black Caucus motivated what sounds like a LATINO guy to do some racially-motivated assassination. Because we all know the Latinos love getting marching orders from blacks. It's well known they want their kids to marry 'em too. Probably he was gay married to boot. They got it all figured out, bravo!

    If I had no need to sleep, and millions of dollars, maybe I'd need Cialias.

    To keep up with the 2 women I could hyopthetically service.

    As it is, I can barely keep up with 1.

    I just bought a multi-stop ticket with BA from Kuwait to SFO for the summer. The fare is listed as $700, the full ticket price a little under $1900, so it's more than 50%.

    This is mostly airline fraudulent pricing.

    http://www.benedelman.org/airfare-advertising/

    Particularly fuel surcharges in days of plummeting oil.

    Many of the bonus programs also base their bonus scheme on the "base fare". So if they can drive that fraudulent base number low enough, they can justify giving you fewer benefits. They can also claim in their accounting to shareholders that they only made X per passenger and the rest was soaked up in overhead fees, so sorry let's get back to our golf game and smoke some cigars now...

    For grins I did a random BA fare in summer. Came up with $2075.45. Of that, $745.45 is "taxes and fees". How much of that is actually taxes? $180.65. The other is $564 of "carrier imposed charge". And oh yeah $0.80 labelled "Miscellaneous". Because they are such jackasses they can't resist charging you another 80 friggin cents and don't even want to tell you what it's for. Cocktail napkins? Who the fuck knows... Point is your pilot friend is full of shit if he said it's "all taxes". To be fair, the "and fees" bit many would stupidly assume is something they are required to charge instead of being accounting & marketing working hand in hand to misrepresent where your money goes.

    And oh yeah it's a great way to make a few bucks on the people burning miles/points. You want to fly to London? Sure, you can burn 200K points and "fly free!" But that only covers the "base fare", you still have to pay our fuel surcharge so let's start at $200 and add from there. Gotcha!

    This country that thinks it's so exceptional, builds passenger rail that the FUCKING BULGARIANS WOULD BE ASHAMED OF!

    Air travel is even worse. As bad as rail is here, I'd still rather take that or drive my car. No Schmeggin' TSA, nobody telling me I need to pay a $150 "rebooking" fee plus a different rate just so I can ride their bus with wings. The fare bucket system with rates changing by the second is madness. Now Frontier is aping Spirit and CHARGING $50 for over head bin space!

    Maybe I need one of these:

    No worries. Everyone has seen Terminator. No way would we put AI in our weapons.

    HydroCabron says

    I see the libertarian vote moving to Rubio now. Given that he hasn't been quiet on abortion, as Rand has tried to be, he has a lock on the libertarian cohort.

    Does Communist abortion present a conundrum for Teatopians?

    Let me see, is she....

    Yep, a ne-er do well. Probably a drug dealer to boot. Good thing the landlord decided it's time for her to head out on the ice to die.

    No worries gang!

    Mitch is going to save us all by passing that Keystone XL bill first thing in 2015.

    Throw in some Wall Street handouts and maybe outlaw abortion to boot.

    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

    This little nut sucks up more water than tomatoes. It's a luxury the Valley may not be able to afford during an extended drought.

    HydroCabron says

    When Keystone fell through, all my dreams died. Now I just sit and stare.

    Without that pipeline, we lost 300-million jobs.

    I think all that's left now is apprenticing for Meth Lab Tech.

  • On 14 Dec 2014 in Will the Shale Oil Credit Bubble Burst and Expose The Fake Economy, Vicente said:

    I find the whole thing hilarious.

    Now my Fox News relatives who were SCREECHING about Keystone XL pipeline, will be SOOO redfaced when it's all closed down. Their Oil Baron masters who assured them a bright future with JOBS let them down again.

    Biosphere 2 is really worth pondering. I took the tour when I passed through there, and found it fascinating.

    It was BOLD, it tried something new in a big way. It didn't work out as planned, but that's true of most Big Ideas.

    Try the same things a few more times, we'd iterate toward it working. However then it wouldn't be the Bold New Project anymore, and nobody would fund it.

    I think it was on the small side for what it was trying to do though, which was make a glass-box ecology with HUMANS at the top of the pyramid. For humans you need quite a lot of stuff below them to work out smoothly, and plenty of ROOM for mistakes which IMO they didn't have enough size to the thing. Mars-sized no problem IMO. Plus if you screw it up oh well you can't make a dead planet "more dead".

    Had they aimed a lot lower, probably it would have worked out. Maybe an ecology to sustain cockroaches as the highest life form in that size, or at most some rabbits.

  • On 11 Dec 2014 in Ron Paul suggests we bring all the troops back home., Vicente said:

    FortWayne says

    Ron Paul promoted just that.

    I beg to differ. He only advocated abolishing CIA & NSA. Troops would just be moved home, nothing in his article advocating radically downsizing the military. He'd get crucified if he cut the defense pork.

    Military intelligence would just take over the same roles. And next conflict, they would do all the same things the CIA & NSA do now.

  • On 11 Dec 2014 in Ron Paul suggests we bring all the troops back home., Vicente said:

    Ron Paul is a fracking coward.

    Because he won't own up to REAL Glibertopian ideology, which would be to START with 90% cuts to the military. And cut further once you've got that. Why would you need a giant military sitting around in bases in the USA? As a "jobs" program? Ridiculous.

    You build a great sword, run around slicing up all kinds of people, then go home and hang it up. It's not going to stay in that scabbard very long. You want to stop repeating the same mistakes, you have to melt it down.

    He's a coward because his non-intervention "ideals" if you want to call them that, only amounts to giving the war machine a little R&R time back home.

  • On 9 Dec 2014 in CIA Torture Reports: Frozen to Death; Rectal Rehydration, Broken Limbs, Vicente said:

    HydroCabron says

    Rectal rehydration. Rectal rehydration. Rectal rehydration.

    How does a staunch conservative clean up "rectal rehydration" so as to sound politically correct(al)?

    Easy, they were just trying to give them a drink and they mixed up orifices.

    Torture just feels so RIGHT if you are a Teabagger, an eye for an eye and all that.

    Glibertopians are of course against torture...in PRINCIPLE. So what they do is outsource it. As long as it's privatized torture it doesn't count. It's only torture if government agents do it.
