    [–] Two-Faced Dem roo-ster 6 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    Political humor is based on revealing hidden truths.

    This isn't humorous because it's core premise is false.

    [–] Jay Inslee Calls For a Climate Change Only Primary Debate roo-ster 1 points ago in politics

    Democrats can't save the planet, if they don't win in 2020.

    To win, Democrats have to talk about the issues that matter to voters, and especially to the handful of voters that actually change election results through the Electoral College.

    That's not ideal, but that's how our system works.

    [–] Jay Inslee Calls For a Climate Change Only Primary Debate roo-ster 2 points ago in politics

    I have a very pragmatic view of politics.

    If Democrats don't win in 2020, we're definitely fucked on climate change, but we're fucked on everything else, too.

    It's made of foreskins. When you rub it, it becomes full size.

    [–] Jay Inslee Calls For a Climate Change Only Primary Debate roo-ster 1 points ago in politics

    Climate change is one of the most important issues facing the world, but this debate seems like a bad idea.

    Democrats can't enact change if they don't get elected and, important though the issue is, it's not the issue that'll bring swing state voters (e.g. Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio) to the polls.

    Does whoever posted this also want to remove churches because of the Crusades?

    [–] I am extremely new to the Arduino community and systems but I have an idea which I think an Arduino system may be able to solve: Creating a volume control device which is able to be implemented to any simple audio system. More Details in description. roo-ster 1 points ago in arduino

    You could use an ESP32 module which runs Arduino code and also has Bluetooth and WiFi support. With BT there are apps you can install on your phone to control simple devices like potentiometers. For wifi the device would host a web page, use websockets, or some other approach. Another way would be to use inexpensive nRF24L01 rf modules and make your own remote and receiver.

    [–] Does Actual Political Humor Count? roo-ster 13 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    Yes, which is why this post, doesn’t.

    [–] Progressive Groups Call on House Dems to Investigate Kavanaugh's Confirmation roo-ster 11 points ago in politics

    Forget his temperament, the sexual assault allegations, and his rant about the Clintons. Those things are worthy of impeachment but they leave too much wiggle room for Republicans to decide to ignore them.

    Dems should focus on the case against Kavanaugh for perjury, for which there is very substantial hard evidence.

    Kavanaugh said in several different statements to Congress that he had never received, seen, or been aware of emails that had been stolen from Senate Democrats.

    But there is 'smoking gun' evidence, here. (PDF)

    Kavanaugh received a stolen Democratic email at 3:46pm on January 13th, 2003. At 5:08pm he replied and asked the sender who among the Democrats supported it. At 6:38pm on the same day, the source stated that it was supported by all of the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. His e-mail reply is evidence that he read it, and that he sought additional information.

    There is also evidence of him receiving other stolen documents.

    [–] If you understand VAT and W9, you'll see how stupid this post is. roo-ster 16 points ago in insanepeoplefacebook

    That's an obvious lie. Just look at how much more money America pays for health care compared to all of the countries with 'socialized medicine' that also have better outcomes.

    [–] Same shit, different assholes roo-ster 1 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    Sorry but it's not a home-grown gang.

    1. Los Angeles is American. If it had started in Central America you'd have a case, but it didn't.

    2. Hundreds of thousands of people fled Central American in response to U.S. interference in their countries, including corruption in 'drug enforcement', corrupt resource extraction, corrupt agricultural exploitation, support for brutal dictators, and the funding of death squads. So the problem was made in the USA.

    [–] Any teasers for Synology's DSxx20 models yet? DSM 7 launch date? roo-ster 1 points ago in synology

    I'm buying diskless DS918+ and DS1019+ models and I'd stop in a heartbeat if they required a Microsoft OS.

    [–] Same shit, different assholes roo-ster 1 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    MS-13 started in the United States, in California prisons. Trump ranted about "illegal immigrants" and then tied them to this made-in-the-USA gang, which we exported to other countries.

    The "families of MS13 murder victims" should be looking to America to understand MS-13, not to immigrants.

    Are you thinking that people should buy a copy of Windows server that costs about the same price as the NAS?
