    [–] Woman who lied about being raped on college campus gets jail -917- 3 points ago in news

    Baffling the number of people who don’t know there’s a difference between “innocent” and “not guilty”.

    [–] BBC News | US quits UN human rights council -917- 18 points ago in news

    This is such a tired and useless argument. They're on the panel because it forces them to come to the table and talk about human rights. If they weren't on the panel they wouldnt give a fuck.

    Only an insane person says shit like this.

    I always support the accused now

    Why would you support the accused? Why not support the truth and just wait for evidence?

    [–] California sees $9 billion surplus, passes budget to help poor -917- 3 points ago in news

    Silicon Valley became a thing because of free higher education. The university of California was free until a certain actor became governor. And creating a cluster of highly educated people in the Bay Area because of the many numerous universities, allowed Silicon Valley to be created.

    Where did you learn this? Silicon Valley‘s roots were tied to William Shockley (the transistor) and Fairchild Semiconductor (silicon semiconductors). It had nothing to do with CA education. It was an accident of luck. Shockley moved to Mountain View to be near his mom. That’s why and how Fairchild was founded there. What you’re peddling is politicized guck.

    And how about tax revenue from employees in Silicon Valley?

    Edit: Individual Income tax in SF area and LA areas are not that far apart. In 2015, SF Metro counties (Alameda, Marin, San and Santas = $23 billion) vs LA Metro (LA, Orange, SBarbara, Ventura = $30 billion). Cap gains were larger in SF Metro than LA Metro.

    I wonder how much tax revenue CA generated from Silicon Valley.
