  • reader commented on the blog post The Nuclear Option Catch-22 for Republicans

    2014-11-21 13:27:33View | Delete

    Using the “nuclear option” to undo the other side’s past use of the “nuclear option” just legitimatizes it as the an acceptable way to change the rules in the Senate.

    LOLOLOLOL!

    What goes around comes around.

    I’m sure they’ll figure some way out. THEY ALWAYS DO. ALWAYS.

  • reader commented on the blog post House Republicans Finally File Suit Against President Obama

    2014-11-21 13:24:44View | Delete

    The part about the cost sharing subsidies is new, most of the focus so far has been on the decision to delay the employer mandate.

    It is worth noting that House Republicans don’t approve of the employer mandate and in the past have voted to delay it. At least half the suit is about something Obama did which Republicans wanted done anyway.

    OMG, these R’s are totally incoherent. As always.

    *popping popcorn*

    Oh, yeah, I meant to add … but Twitter is not YET successfully monetized. And LinkedIn’s monetization may be failing. All hype notwithstanding.

    I hear you, Starbuck. If I believed it would or could do me some good I would try … but I have to be convinced. Social media as well. I thought all that through a couple of years ago and I would have to have a ‘campaign’ all thought out for a target audience. I [...]

    LOL! I feel for the guy – these entrepreneurs get pretty single-minded. I understand business too – but I reached a limit last night listening to this grassroots co-opting advertising platform disguised inside a corporate charity model. And this from an ‘entrepreneur-in-residence’ (isn’t that like being in a zoo?) at a local global business incubator [...]

    My background is social science AND technology. I HATE being ‘social engineered’ by technologists, as one would expect. It’s awful stuff. I cannot believe people spend time every day on these ugly, dreadful sites, with the implication that the whole reason for being is to collect ‘friends’ and ‘contacts.’ I get these creepy emails from [...]

    So, for Craney … about online courses. This is an exploding field. And there’s more and more developments. Distance Education can be taken for credit and can be very serious – I fulfilled one of my university degree requirements via Distance Education in 1996 because my university had a special focus on it. This has [...]

    … glad I don’t have one of those new toasters!

    LOLOLOLOL! Heaven knows WHAT they could do knowing how much toast we make and eat – not to mention other uses for the toasters. :-)

    No Facebook, never will. Now I am being told I MUST be on LinkedIn which is just as bad. Maybe worse for the air of business. I thoroughly believe it’s all hype and advertising. And no value to me at all. Unintersting. Very uninteresting. Grim view of it all. But I am an isolationist loner. [...]

    We all need to know how to ‘turn off’ the tracking. Unfortunately, this is not easy enough or dependable. Knowing what the technology is doing is really important as a start. And people don’t know. We should be able to turn it off and use it only when we WANT to.

    My mother was a concert-level pianist – practiced Beethoven and Chopin daily when I was a kid. I was a huge Gershwin et al fan – know tons of lyrics. Astaire, Clooney, and such. I loved Broadway musicals until I got bored. I heard this week that singing is the BEST brain exercise! I’m good [...]

    Oh, msmolly, thanks for the post and for being here. And especially today … I have been wondering about this technology. I am concerned about privacy but I have a mobile product idea (which may only be a pipedream …) that is not about advertising and audio ‘hearing’ could be a cool part of it [...]

    :-) You got it. My brain is really busted – Monday started with an ‘entrepreneurial’ event – long since forgotten – that was questionable, way too stressful, poorly formatted, and led to an encounter with someone who actually rolled their eyes at me! WTF? Pardon my latin, but geeze louise, how rude. Lots of ‘bad’ [...]

    I think it was Big Al who comments around various parts here who said he wrote HIMSELF in during the 2011 vote!! I thought that was a great idea. Giving any support to 3rd party groups/candidates is also useful, I think, if one is so inclined. We have 3 elected members across the country here [...]

    Craney – I have some knowledge on this – will try to post something later today or tomorrow at OE for you. I’m just really exhausted right now. <3
