  • @johnrrymer Just spidered. So sad. Doggone it … thanks. cc: @RIMMAN in reply to johnrrymer #
  • @motownmutt True. And if Romney says that the Supremes are absolutely wrong? in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt Which word do you mean? "Whatever"? or "Absolute"? in reply to motownmutt #
  • How addled is the American psyche? Folk like the benefits … but don't like the legislation. Some fascist will find a use for that. #
  • @motownmutt p.s. where did I suggest that Supremes were infallible? Actually the opposite. Sad to see that sense carries no weight. Sad. in reply to motownmutt #
  • Perhaps a good thing? American right is showing it's true colors. "Don't give me sense and logic … give me what suits me." #
  • @motownmutt Well … I'm tempted to say "Bravo!" for explaining rhetoric: right or wrong, win the argument. HeyHo, and so it goes. in reply to motownmutt #
  • In fact Obama is every successful progressive I've worked with. His career thrived. He's a winner. The bigger questions? /*shrug*/ #
  • @TaoWizard – I'd follow you, except for the fact that you claim mastery. Kiss of death, that is. #
  • How to prove that your personal spirituality works: make millions of dollars pushing materialism. /*D'uhh!*/ #
  • @motownmutt Ah. Sorry to see. Vague media generalizations and cliche are handy way to avoid simple conversation. "Absolute"/ "Whatever". in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt p.s. I understand: true believers only … everybody else gets bullshit. And ram your "leftist" antagonism up your arse. in reply to motownmutt #
  • @stevenwrightATX Hey you! Kinda lost touch recently … been doing a lot of strategic replanning. ==more== in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @stevenwrightATX Running joke w/my longest cyber friend, sheriff in small town SW of Dallas: we'd have a great time, til someone stomped me. in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @stevenwrightATX I'm a lightning rod. Shudda seen me in airborne, w/troglodytes. If I wasn't so quick (I'm small) I'd uh died 100 times. in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @stevenwrightATX Simple fact: most folk are wounded, if not screwed up. Wounded parents, wounded kids. It's been a shit-kicker century. in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @stevenwrightATX BTW one of my first "friends" in GPlus is legislative assistant in TX. When I woa'd him up (Group-think sux!) he freaked. in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @stevenwrightATX Osteen: not known to me. Guessing: fundie? FWIW I met a group of Pentecostals that were, I kid you not, salt of the earth. in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @stevenwrightATX heehee … is why "strategic" rather than "tactical". Took me decades to derive a product. How to succeed w/o selling out? in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @stevenwrightATX Sorry, "No way" = sync loss. But yes, is what I was guessing. in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @stevenwrightATX Context/background: http://t.co/vN8GlG5E … but who would support a system that reduces BS?! ;-p in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @stevenwrightATX heh … not sure if that's typo or good irony. "Sure I sold out, but at least I didn't compromise my integrity" huh huh in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • RFE – Everybody should play along with "Big Bang" personas. #
  • @stevenwrightATX I've been a technocrat forever. See Buckminster Fuller's "Spaceship Earth". Navigators create tech; pirates mis-use. HeyHo in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • Yaa, "Big Bang Theory" has definitely found the vibe. #
  • @motownmutt "what part of "absolutely not a tax" didn't you understand?" … not antagonising? Oh. Well you know absolutely everything. in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt Talk "not imposing" and then swagger like a drunk pirate. Like I said: you and your true believers. #BullShit in reply to motownmutt #
  • @tturbo Well I don't mean to get into subtleties that might escape you, but how come you dictate roles? *beat* Ho'w m'I doin'? ;-p in reply to tturbo #
  • @Twitter @Support – Wow, you've really messed up the web interface. Click on name and don't get profile. Good grief. #
  • @tturbo …. you //know// that was my mother's idea. And it was supposed to be a kilt. heh #BigBang the meme? in reply to tturbo #
  • I spent 30yrs in mystecism. I no longer see the point. Our society to me seems entirely psychotic. It'd be masturbation. I don't need that. #
  • @stevenwrightATX But the techology, most of it, is neutral. Like brick-layer building chimneys … for concentration camp ovens. in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @motownmutt I'm not refering to what you're refering to. I'm refering to the words I read here in Twitter. in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt On that we agree: people under the banner of whatever don't hold to what it seems to me they're saying. in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt I was just pointing to "whatever", as a way to start. p.s. I'm supposed to know what e/o means? Sorry … no clue. Never seen b4 in reply to motownmutt #
  • @tturbo haaaaahaha … glad to know quotes are online somewhere. Almost theatre of the absurd! in reply to tturbo #
  • @stevenwrightATX Sure, it's how it's used … who it empowers, and who it empoverishes. Is what culture's about, why we have society. in reply to stevenwrightATX #
  • @motownmutt I used to be partisan, but power politics is about selling folk tainted meat. So I'm allergic to "whatever" and "absolute". in reply to motownmutt #
  • @tturbo Funny thing? Seinfeld always offended me. Something smarmy / complacent about it. For some reason Bang doesn't do that. in reply to tturbo #
  • Physics. #Karma Chosing to be wilfully ignorant creates a whole string of consequences. Is why you have no choices in your lives: evasion. #
  • @motownmutt Okie dokie. At the risk of dehumanizing this transaction (cheers to you personally!) is how rhetoric is a virus. Classic. ^5 in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt p.s. what is and is not a tax is an extremely fine legal distinction. Hardly evidence of some horrific and contemptuous deceit. in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt I've spent my whole life /trying/ to show that any abstract term is just a fuzzy ball of concepts. Important, but not "fact". in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt In 2012 we're using terms and concepts like sticks and stones. Being pissed off is reason for ignorant thugery, but not excuse. in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt Yes words mean stuff. And politics is about greys. //We// are precisely infallible; //they// are wickedly manipulative. in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt When I object to "whatever", suddenly words aren't so important. My whole fucking life against rhetoric and sophistry. in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt heehee maybe is why we're not pissing on one another? Not easy! Not trivial! see my http://t.co/vN8GlG5E if you would. ^5 in reply to motownmutt #
  • @znmeb "Build a Scalable Multi-node Red Hat OpenShift PaaS from Scratch" > http://t.co/knvOIbjh < Why is "HD" part of the headline? in reply to znmeb #
  • Perhaps the American Right Wing's worst sin: that they warred against citizens who stood against dictators in South and Central America. #
  • @motownmutt Real hard to make things simple. And heh maybe harder to not "talk with a twist". Passive aggression is a saleable commodity! in reply to motownmutt #
  • @motownmutt The "we and they" thing is clasic. And we keep getting sucked in. "Divide and conquer". IMNSHO even politicians get sucked in. in reply to motownmutt #
  • Conservatives are sooooo concerned with gov't waste. But military aid against citizen rights around the world? What, good investment?! #
  • Show me someone with a blood-drenched conscience, I'll show you someone who strains at gnats. US right wingers. (History doesn't matter?) #
  • Obese, so over-fed that they're stricken with diabetes … and bleeting like sheep that they must have more, more. Uncle Sam's children. #
  • @ehyshka Fertile fields for those who lust to punish others. "Projection"; "Those people are guilty, therefore I am righteous". Simply cruel in reply to ehyshka #
  • Guatemalan military documented slaughter of civilians to Reagan White House. The result? Increased financial support. GoP = war criminals. #
  • @ehyshka I recommend, strategically, total focus on restorative. That firm ground (however slight) opens the door to prophylatic. cheers in reply to ehyshka #
  • As Kissinger said to Nixon concerning Chile: "We will make the economy groan in agony". But support for tyrants? Uncle Sam is always there. #
  • Why am I a loser? Because I'm a specialist technologist. And those with special talents in PR are sellout whores. Not real complicated! #
  • A TV documentary just spoke my life-long motto: "Tear down the walls of impunity" … it's that simple. Cheats and bullies … your pals. #
  • I'm grateful to the 3 or 4 people I've met in my 50+ yrs who were simply honest. They evidence how 99.5% of folk talk shit 99% of the time. #
  • @mbauwens Just saw a great documentary on PBS about justice after the ghastly genocide in Guatemala. Dare we be optimistic? in reply to mbauwens #
  • @mbauwens Rios Montt … after yrs / decades of process, including genocide case in Spain, finally was charge Jan of this year. House arrest in reply to mbauwens #
  • @mbauwens And concretely! Guatemalan judicial system had to date failed even prosecution. Recently 2 cops convicted in 1 "disappearance". in reply to mbauwens #
  • If you might win $15K would you hand over IP to the work you'd done over the past decade? Can't talk sense … everyone's childish. #
  • Easy enough to say I've had a jaundiced view of human affairs. But more? I was actually too optimistic. Not naive, just mistaken. #
