  • Jesse Jackson to take on Silicon Valley’s lack of diversity

    That says it all about Jackson, I’ve read that before and believe it.

    This is not the first time for Jackson and this.

    Just about 15 years ago he did the same thing.

    Scott McNealy of Sun Microsystems took Jackson up on the challenge and said that if Jackson would send him the resumes of as many qualified black engineers as he could, that McNealy would hire ALL of them.

    Not another word out of Jackson until now.

    Funny how that works ...

    When we are forced to pay for other peoples birth control, forced to subsidize women who have out of wedlock children those are not just social but fiscal issues.

    Simple problem, simple solution. Stop the welfare checks. If people have to be responsible for themselves then the social issues take care of themselves. Piece of cake.

    One trick they use is to send data that's way too big for the buffer (sort of like the "inbox") so that the data overflows into areas of memory it's not supposed to go to.

    Its not that clever. Buffer overflows have been used since Sendmail came out in the 1980s. Its old hat now. Sendmail ran as root. Guess what file they went after? That's right. Send your stuff straight to the passwd file.

    Never let anyone code using gets() and you'll take care of mot of those.

    This is a clear kind of abuse that is predictable in this environment where every mental illness related to sexuality is something to be celebrated rather than treated.

    Yes.

    Two things need to be present that do not seem to be present:
    1) A professional diagnosis of gender dysphoria and a letter from a licensed psychiatrist.
    2) The kid doesn't appear to be PRESENTING as female.

    Both of those should be required before considering referring to the kid as "transgendered". There should be zero consideration of a claim until those two items are present. Heck, I'd even add in there a written plan for HRT and, if of age - a copy of the blood workup showing the kid is actually going through HRT just to show they're serious.

    We have had some transgendered people in my workplace before. HR required documentation in quantity and then double-checked the validity of it. I don't see how the schools can require any less.

    They can’t argue Law of the Land crap, when the President isn’t following his own law.

    My usual response is to give an 8th Grade Civics Lesson about Separation of Powers.

    Then respond to their objections by going back to the roadmap of separation of powers and adding in the shutdown under Reagan where Tip O'Neill defunded the MX Missile where Reagan brought them all to the table and hammered out a settlement.

    I have yet to have a liberal who doesn't explode at that point screaming about how the President doesn't have to negotiate. At that point I ask them if we are a Dictatorship or not. Hysterics then ensue and I finish it off by saying that Leaders aren't afraid to go to the table and LEAD the negotiations. Bullies, on the other hand, can't handle that task.

    Speaker Boehner shows more maturity than some people here on FR give him credit for.

    I think what the Tea Party folks have been going through has finally dawned on Boehner now that he is the new favorite target - which he is dealing with quite well.

    The battle cry of the Tea Party is that we demand our place at the table and to be heard. Boehner now knows what it is like to make that demand and have it fall on deaf ears.

    You're watching a man have an epiphany here and as such, I think we might actually be seeing a real leader being born.

    Let’s hope it produces a massive revolt, like that one that got the original Medicare prescription drug benefit repealed.

    If you want to kill Obamacare deader than a doornail, find a plaintiff who has zero income and incurs the penalty.

    The penalty is $95 or 1% of income, whichever is greater.

    With $0 income, that $95 becomes a direct tax and is therefore unconstitutional. It is no longer an income tax once it hits someone without an income. You can't tax zero!

    At the very least the individual mandate will fall then if not the whole thing. Once the mandate falls, the premiums will skyrocket and it truly will be the "UNaffordable Care Act"

    The House can send CR’s to the Senate for essential services such as SS, ATC, National Parks, Homeland Security and the Senate will have to pass them. The House can then just not get around to funding the ACA.

    If someone rejects your offer completely, you don't compromise with yourself. You send back the exact same thing. That sends a message that the other side better give somewhere or you are not budging.

    Alternatively you can simply carve it up into smaller chunks.

    What is wrong with sending the Senate multiple CRs - each one funding specific items, then conveniently forgetting to send a CR over that funds Obamacare?

    That would drive Reid absolutely insane if a hundred "clean" CR bills were sent to the Senate.

    The House could say, "We sent over 'clean' bills. What's their problem? The President asked for 'clean' bills. We provided them."

    I don’t think gay weddings are *illegal* to hold in Oregon. The ceremonies just don’t have any legal effect.

    True. They cannot be recorded or have any legal effect. I am corrected.

    But my understanding is about the same as yours - once you agree to deal with the public, you lose certain rights to choose which members of the public.

    Yes. I've been looking into how to decline specific jobs. Most of the cases where Governments go after people -- are when people state the reason why they decline the job and provide the evidence needed themselves.

    I have not seen a case yet for a bakery or photographer where saying "We are booked that weekend" or "We are backordered for three months" or even "We have to decline as we are swamped" gets someone in trouble. There may well be one (as in the case of a hotel/motel) but I just haven't seen it yet.

    Do you happen to know if the photographer who was fined for not shooting a gay wedding had a public studio, or a home-based business?

    Not offhand, but the definition of "public accomodation" has expanded significantly. Originally, it was meant to simply mean that you couldn't throw people out of restaurants and hotels and bars because they were black. Now it means just about anything the politicians want it to mean.

    The general rule they taught me in business school was that if your door is open to the public you have to take whatever customer walks in -- if you didn't want to get in trouble.

    The OR case is a bit odd. The bakery was asked to make a cake for a ceremony that is illegal in OR and then got in trouble for it.

    It may be possible to refuse business because your perception is that you would be an accessory to an illegal act. That may or may not work given who is in office. Certainly claiming a religious exception is not working.

    We live in perilous times.

    In this case, repeal the Oregon Equality Act or modify it to allow public accommodations the right of refusal.

    Since Oregon is a one-party blue State at the moment that is not likely a viable option.

Salem recently went after a bar in Portland whose business dropped when a bunch of cross-dressers decided to make it their new home and were ejected because of the drop in receipts. $400k fine.

    I guess it’s asking too much for FReepers to take on the question seriously of how Christians in business can set themselves up to avoid persecution by gays.

    The only way to do it is not to be a public accomodation, which means that you can't set up a storefront or advertise your services to the public at large. Basically, you have to be an underground business which isn't going to be enough these days to stay afloat.

    Delivering poor-quality products is not an answer.

    It is an answer. It may not be the best one, but it is one way of doing things. The problem is the way the laws are set up. If you engage the general public, you are compelled to provide service to all comers in accordance with the law. Failure to do so results in ... well, we know the results.

    Its a problem that has no good solution other than going underground, but if one does that, then the business is not likely to make enough money to survive.

    I'm open to suggestions.

    I've been trying to figure out what the business model should be for Christian wedding suppliers.

    A business model I propose is simple.

    Yes you have to bake the cake. The State will go after you if you do not bake the cake.

    No law and no person says it has to be edible. A sawdust-flavored cake is fine. A hot pepper flavored cake is fine. A chocolate COLORED cake is fine. Must have been an error on the order sheet, you know.

    Service is required by Law. Quality of service is not required by law. There are many ways to lodge a protest. This is but one.

    It is entirely possible to bake a flavorless cake just as it is possible to serve drinks that look like one thing and taste quite like another.

    The problem with all movements to right wrongs is the same.

    Once they win, they don't know what to do so they keep at it and make things worse when they should simply celebrate the victory and go home.

    With Civil Rights, when you're looking at code words and facial movements to detect racism, you've simply gone too far and are looking under rocks to make yourself still relevant. The problem was Government. Once Government was corrected ... there really was no good reason to keep pushing.

    Its like the question we have about all the Cancer Fundraising groups. Once a cure is found, what happens to them then? Do they celebrate and disband or do they kill the scientist who found the cure because their mission in life is then over?

    Finally, a straight answer, you are wrong about a (good) Catholic supporting homosexuals in the military and gay marriage in the military, but it is refreshing to see you admit to it.

    Where did that come from? As usual, you are misreading me and making an ass of yourself.

    It was only 1994 when Clinton made it legal for a homosexual to try to pass in the military for as long as he could until caught, it was only this year that Obama made it legal for them to serve, and then fully equal with “marriage”.

    DADT is how it should be. If they can comport themselves as Military Soldiers, then there should be no issue with them serving. If they cannot comport themselves as Military Soldiers, then they have no business serving.

    Why is this so difficult? Is "equality under the law" such a hard concept for people to understand? Why is that?

    So you are a part of this new world for the American military, you reject all that was before in regard to homosexuals in the military.

    Only in your dreams, my FRiend, but don't let that get in the way of your misrepresentations and lies. I would suggest repentance, but I know my exhortation would fall on deaf ears.

    The problem with your argument is that you are arguing that marriage is a constitutional right.

    Full stop right there.

    I have never put that up as an argument and have no clue how that can be derived. Please enlighten me.

    I have said "equality under the law". If marriage is defined as being between one male and one female, then all get to partake of it under the law. You don't get to deny someone because they're black or gay or yellow or too short or too fat. They meet the qualifications -- they get it.

    You can't deny a homosexual under the law, as it stands with that, but really, would they under those requirements? That's not what they want and its YOUR position.

    Care to try again? You guys seem to be inventing a whole lot of things nobody is saying. While amusing, it is very irritating and shows a lack of comprehension on your part. It is also amusing that people on this site are running about bashing people WHO ARE ON THEIR SIDE. Way to go, folks. Any more supporters you want to drive away while you're at it by being stupid?

    I have said in the past a good end-run around any legal argument is to send marriage back to the Churches and get the Government out of it.

    With THIS Government, which seems to be minting libertarians (small-l) left and right out of both Republicans and Democrats alike, that may end up being the only viable option once they get going.

    If you ask a Catholic if he accepts equality in the military for homosexuals, he would probably answer.

    The answer should be the same as mine which is that you aren't to discriminate against them. If they don't give the answer of "equality under the law" then they need to go back to re-read their Catechism once again.

    Herein is the problem and it is multifaceted.

    First off, as human beings, even homosexuals have rights and the right to be treated equally under the law.

    Secondly, if they are to be treated equally under the law, that means you don't get to treat them as second-class citizens.

    That doesn't mean, however, you get to legitimize the homosexual act. That is precisely why I have asked you before, "What does sexuality have to do with the Military? It is not a social club."

    Think of it as an expression of the Golden Rule. If you want to be treated as an "equal under the law" then you have to treat others the same way.

    You do not have to legitimize their sin. You do not have to acknowledge their sin as being proper. You do not have to accord them any sort of special status. But you do have to treat them as human beings.

    Otherwise, you run into the problem where the Golden Rule works in reverse. "As you do unto others, so shall they do unto you."

    That sort of society where people are constantly at each others' throats and designating each other as second-class citizens depending on who is in charge at the time is not one that I would want to live in nor is it one that I want anyone else to have to live in.

    I think we all know what libertarian social goals follow in your "order", as veiled as your post is.

    My dear friend, so much of what you know just is not so.

    First order of business, of course, is to downsize the Government.

    Amnesty? Not such a hot idea. Even Lew Rockwell came out against it because it would just create more people screaming for more Government benefits. Another 10+ million votes for "more goodies" is just not a good thing. Once the Government is downsized to the point where there aren't any Government benefits, then we can talk about immigration but doing so now while there is an incentive to "vote more goodies" is just not proper.

    Any other myths I can help with?

    Do you think Goldwater was a liberal or not? Yes or no. Its not difficult and I'm not asking for sourcing. I'm asking a yes or no question.

    Which is it? Was Goldwater a liberal or not? Yes or no?

    Are you drunk now? Your posts are getting stranger and flakier.

    Not in the slightest.

    Do you think Barry Goldwater was a liberal? Your posts say "Yes I do". Its a simple yes or no question. Let's have the answer ...

    I never mentioned his name, and this is my response to the post where you used him to try to promote homosexualizing the military.

    Yet Goldwater was in favor of it. Your claim is that anyone who says (as Goldwater did) that "You don't have to be straight to be in the military - you just have to shoot straight" is a liberal.

    I can source this if you want. You've been calling me such for quoting Goldwater this entire thread. Ergo, you think Goldwater is a liberal because he said just that.

    Don't deny it! Admit it!

    No, the Continental congress had to make law regarding what is a legitimate marriage, just as the government always does.

    The Continental Congress had no such authority. The Articles of Confederation conferred no such authority. The Constitution confers no such authority.

    If you have such a law, post it. Make like we're from Missouri. "Show me".

    History argues against that. Marriage has always been a State issue, not a National Government issue.

    Weird, you are one of our more liberal posters, yet telling the conservatives on this social conservative site that they need to leave because they are like liberals.

    I'm just saying that you'd fit in better with the Democrats.

    After all, you've already called Barry Goldwater a flaming liberal. That's another strike against the claim to be a conservative. He started the modern conservative movement after all. Try learning something; it will help immensely.

    Ping me when you're not calling Goldwater a Liberal Democrat.

    I don’t think the Continental congress would recognize gay marriage, that is some weird history you want to promote.

    You're absolutely correct for once! They would have said it was a State Issue and not a Federal one.

    Congratulations for being correct!

    Yeah very convincing, the guy to the right of you and your republican party is actually a closet democrat slipping under the radar here at this social conservative political site as he tries to move you to the right.

    I know Democrats a lot better than you think. You'd fit in right well with them.

    There are very few people to the Political Right of me. I want to dismember the Federal Government as much as I can.

    On the other hand, you want to make it twice as big as it is right now.

    Tell me again who is the conservative and who is the liberal?

    There is a role in government for preventing abortion, for running the military and keeping homosexuality out of it, for staying completely away from libertarianism on the border and homosexuality and abortion and gay marriage, and other things that they push.

    Let's back that up bit by bit, shall we?

    Abortion is not a Federal Issue. It is a State Issue and you'd be well served to note that. Same with Marriage. It is not a Federal Issue. Immigration IS a Federal Issue and as such may be regulated.

    As for keeping homosexuality out of the military - excuse me - there should be no sexuality in the military at all. It shouldn't matter who is in it. Its the MILITARY and is not a social club.

    Apparently, you think it is for some reason? Care to explain why you think sexuality of any sort has any place in the MILITARY?

    Conservatism is what built America, libertarians are at war with it.

    So ... "Give me liberty or give me death" had no role anywhere. Got it. Might want to take a US History class for a refresher. Liberty was the callphrase of the American Revolution.

    Apparently, liberty is now passe' and we all need to be slaves on the Big Government plantation. Thank you no, we don't have an interest in that.

    Go join the Democrats. You'll fit in better there. They don't understand the country's history either.

    I didn’t make up anything, read your post 151 again and what it was in response to, and I also didn’t make up your years old posting history.

    My posting history is pretty straight-forward. Trouble is, it takes eyes to see. Please remove the beam from yours before trying to find the mote that doesn't live in mine.

    Thanks for not trying to deny that you do push to get conservatives to lighten up on the pro-life agenda.

    I said nothing about lightening up on the agenda. I did, however, advise changing the rhetoric if winning was desired.

    Go check my posting history on that. I *dare* you to do so. You'll find I've said the exact same thing before and I will continue to do so until it gets through thick skulls.

    There is a huge difference between changing the message and changing how you deliver the message. I don't expect you to comprehend the difference between the two. It will suffice to note there is a difference between the two. See above about "eyes to see".

    By the way,Akin lost, but so did pro-abortion Romney.

    Akin lost because of his idiotic rhetoric. Anyone who engages in such silliness is going to lose. That is why it is time to change the rhetoric and the message delivery.

    Of course, one could continue beating one's head against the wall in perpetuity, getting nowhere, but being convinced one is correct and being so filled with self-righteousness that they can't consider that perhaps an error has been made is a losing move.

    That would be you, my FRiend.

    Now, as to Libertarian thought, it all starts with two things. First, you have to say to yourself, "Is there a role for Government here?" and Secondly, you say to yourself, "Should there be a Government role here or should it be left to the People themselves to sort out?"

    That is how you start leaving the Big-Government Democrat Party (where you are) and start entering the Small-Government Republican Wing (where I am). Unfortunately, you seem to have more in common with the Liberal Left than you do with actual Conservatives who say, "Ya know, the Government should just BUTT OUT!"

    I eagerly await news of your conversion.

    My point is it is the Conservatives and Moderates whom have ruined their own brand.

    I could not agree more!
