Re: “Scrubbed from the system

These people want blood.

We are a polite society where we don't talk about that stuff. These government officers, their cronies, and their abetting administrative staff members want to be able to walk into restaurants and other public places and be treated like kings and queens. They cannot make their hands clean of what they have done and continue to do. People suffer and die because of the underhanded and cruel policies enforced by this would-be aristocracy.

They depend on something. They depend on the fabric of a polite society to hold together and pretend scum like them are not in our midst.

You don't have to do that.

You don't have to be polite to torturers or murderers. You don't have to kiss the rings of their bloody hands. You don't have to serve them or be deferential in any way. Refuse to be polite. You can call them out. You could speak to them and provide a much needed lesson in the assholes they have become.

The average Joe or Jane Sixpack doesn't want much. We are not greedy in some insane over the top way. We just don't want to have to crawl through glass for the simple dignity the law has been created to give to us already.

This is a "Fight Club" moment:
"Look, the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances. We guard you while you sleep. Do not... fuck with us."

Re: “Satanic Temple arrives supported by Arkansas Christians; Rapert vows to defend 'will of the people'

When anybody pounds the Bible this hard you have to do two things: locate your wallet, and make sure your kids are safe and still fully clothed.

Re: “Majority: Red-light 30 Crossing

This project seeks to address a problem that doesn't exist for another 20 years at a time when planning for that precise future makes no sense. We are on the threshold of several disruptive technologies that might make vehicular traffic a thing of the past, including: self-driving vehicles, delivery drones, much smaller electric vehicles, and various forms of home automation which might make traveling even to a fast food place unnecessary.

So this "amazing" plan with such an absurdly overpriced budget, sure to run over-budget benefits whom exactly? Why are they so eager to move this project forward with so little oversight? As an Arkansas newcomer sometimes I feel that i don't fully grasp the full reach of the "old boy network" locally. Somebody must get greased but good for doing this idiot thing.

Re: “An ISP to love

Already expanding...no residential...lots of empty hype. I guess this must be the ISP for someone else to love. So just like Google Fiber except exactly not at all like Google Fiber.

Fuck these guys.

Re: “Hardened

The belief in a "daddy in the sky" is irrational at its foundation, but then you are somehow still surprised when the people that follow such a practice behave irrationally.

They aren't hardened, they're just stupid and like it that way. In this era of scientific wonders, it takes a strong willful ignorance of the universe all around us to continue to believe in things for which there is literally zero evidence of any kind.

Unsolicited advice: Get very far away from people that believe in this "daddy in the sky" nonsense. Their leaders just want to bugger your children and steal from your wallet, with your knowledge and aforethought if they can get it.

Jump into the pool of hard agnosticism / soft atheism - the water is just fine.

Re: “Dear Little Rock, Amazon DOES matter

Let's get right to it: broadband and rental units. LR fails on both fronts. There's basically one shitty option for broadband and that's apparently Comcast. And honestly, I don't have time to recount the many problems with how Arkansas treats renters. Add to that the general southern xenophobia, bible thumping, and confederate flag waving...yeah, a younger generation says "Fuck you, LR."

Re: “Infantile Antifa

I made an exception this week and read this column because I actually had no real knowledge of what Antifa was. Having read the column and gathered just a tiny bit of information on my own I think I know what is going on. In short, I think these Antifa jokers could easily be government agents trying to give otherwise peaceful protest movements a bad name by infiltrating them and then becoming the worst actors.

This is exactly what happened in Chicago in 68, as Lyons would actually know if he wasn't an idiot instead. He'd rather run with an alternate history in support of the status quo because he is the status quo.

Well, at least it wasn't another sycophantic Clinton ass-kissing thing...
