Cleveland Police Union Thug Cop-splains Blue Privilege posted 12/17/2014, 9:51 AM (William Norman Grigg)
[Category: Science/Technology]
Law enforcement is a career that selects for people of severely limited intellect. Even in that undistinguished company, Jeffrey Follmer, president of the Cleveland Patrolman's Association, is a gopher mound among the Himalayas.

Follmer is marginally verbal and displays no capacity for critical thinking. In most occupations, these traits would be a liability. In law enforcement, they earned Follmer the title of "detective." More importantly, they equipped him to learn the Killer Cop's Catechism of Self-Justification well enough to recite it on cue, as he did in an interview last night on MSNBC's "All In" program.

Speaking -- perhaps "grunting" is a more suitable expression -- on behalf of the privileged purveyors of state-licensed violence, Follmer demanded an apology from Cleveland Browns player Andrew Hawkins, who strode to the field Sunday wearing a T-shirt protesting the killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was "armed" with a BB pistol.

The 9/11 call that summoned the police made mention of the fact that the "gun" appeared to be a toy. The officers rolled up to the playground where Rice was minding his own business and shot him within two seconds of their arrival -- then, in keeping with standard procedure, lied in their official reports. Tim Loehmann, the officer who killed the child, had been terminated by a department in another city because he couldn't meet its undemanding

Neil deGrasse Tyson Attacks 'Startup Culture,' Demonstrates Lack Of Understanding About Innovation posted 10/17/2014, 12:48 AM (Techdirt)
[Category: Science/Technology]
Let me say, first off, that I'm generally a fan of Neil deGrasse Tyson. The guy is obviously super smart, tells very entertaining stories, and, in general, I really like the fact that our culture has turned an astrophysicist into something of a rock star. That's awesome. And I say that even after I read Sean Davis' rather epic takedown of Tyson's apparent penchant for fabricating quotes and stories (when it's not necessary) and bad math (that last one is less forgivable for someon... (more)
What a fascinating takedown of this phony scientist, I hadn't seen any of the articles linked, though I've always despised the man because he's virulently anti-science in the sense he acts as though theories about facts are facts (for example, global warming). I don't necessarily even fault him for his made-up quotes, it can be excused by a faulty memory, on the other hand acting like scientific theories are facts and saying one must believe in them to be considered "pro-science" turns "science" into a religion, when the opposite is the case. Skepticism and the need for absolute proof before belief is a requirement if one is to draw conclusions about what is fact. Scientific theories on the other hand are people's guesses as to the nature of facts, to confuse the two and act as though scientific theories are facts is not to advocate science but it's opposite. - Chris

[Category: Science/Technology]
The Motion Picture Association’s “Piracy it’s a crime” video is without doubt the most iconic anti-piracy PSA ever made. The video includes the classic line “you wouldn’t download a car,” but within a decade Porsche is proving the movie industry wrong. The exclusive car manufacturer is offering freely downloadable blueprints of its Cayman S model, and evidence of the first printed cars is now surfacing left and right.... (more)

Australia Plans Shark Kill to Protect Swimmers (Who Are Being Regularly Eaten Alive By Government-Protected Sharks) posted 12/16/2013, 5:44 AM (VOA News)
[Category: Science/Technology]
SYDNEY — Following the deaths of two surfers in recent weeks, authorities in Western Australia have ordered hunters to catch and kill any sharks over three meters long.

There have been six fatal shark attacks in Western Australia in the past two years.

In response, the state government is creating safety zones around beaches in the city of Perth and along popular coastal regions to the south. Authorities say that sharks spotted in the designated areas will be consid

How many people have already died because of their previous policies? This is multiple years too late. I guess it's hitting tax revenue so the sharks in their parliament can no longer feed their citizens to the sharks in the ocean. (See my article: 'Protected' Great White Shark Bites Young Man in Half)

This issue is a huge pet peeve of mine, sharks are wild animals that kill humans on the regular, yet the moron public and the parasite class demand they be "protected" and allowed to roam free, meanwhile their tax-slaves are farmed like cattle and locked in tiny cages or "culled" if they dare disobey the sharks that rule them.

Humans have the capacity to make things safer, that's why we kill wild beasts, spray against mosquitoes, and wash our food to get rid of bacteria. To suggest we should just let any creature kill as many humans as it wants because it's "a part of nature" or "the oceans are their domain" is the height of savage stupidity. The same garbage could have been said about the entire planet before humans terraformed it and molded it to suit their needs. (Of course, when it's the parasite class, it's not merely a suggestion, you'll be jailed, fined, or killed by the state if you try to proactively defend yourself against one of these wild beasts.)

If you really believe nature is some sort of perfect eco-system then go actually embed yourself in it, live in the dirt, drink unfiltered water filled with parasites, live in the sweltering heat or freezing cold without electricity, no technology, no computers, and be one with the animals -- some of which will incidentally rip your throat out to fulfill what's in *their* nature.

As to the specifics of this plan, it's more centrally planned government stupidity, the market, not the government should be solving this problem. - Chris
