Nice to see people confirming ideas LANL first published in 2000 at ALS:

And yet Intel and so many VARs continue to refuse to let people build firmware from source with no binary blobs; and customers still don't push back on that. When will people learn? After pushing on this for 18 years now, I am beginning to think the answer is: "never".

How to show you don't understand Unix: put stuff like this all through your code:

blue("%sVariable:" % ts),
green(sguid(self.guid)),
purple(self.name),
"attrs= %s" % self.attrs["attrs"]

because we never send program output to other programs, right?

All Americans should have confidence that our President is free of foreign influence. This is not a Republican or Democratic issue -- it's an American issue. The House also needs such assurances. I don't need to see these returns, but the House certainly does.

That's why I created a petition to Rep. Kevin Brady, Chairman, House Ways and Means, which says:

"Rep. Bill Pascrell requested Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady to ask for Trump's tax returns from the past 10 years. Rep. Brady has done nothing. He must fulfill Rep. Pascrell's request and allow the full Committee to examine Trump's tax returns."

Hi,

Trump has promised to release his taxes, pending an audit. That promise has been renewed recently, but also disavowed. I don't need to see his taxes, but the Senate certainly does. They should review his taxes so they can be assured that there are no problems.

That's why I created a petition to Orrin Hatch, Chair, Senate Finance Committee, which says:

"Trump refuses to release his taxes. Every President in the last 50 years has. The Senate Finance Committee is allowed by law to request his taxes for review. They must do this so that Trump can get a clean bill of health on his taxes. It will benefit all of us, Republican and Democrat."

Thanks!

It's a stupid, useless, and as it happens, illegal executive action. It doesn't even apply to the countries the 9/11 criminals came from. I guess because they have Trump hotels? Maybe the 7 countries could put up a Trump Tower in their capitals and reverse the ban? I only wish I were joking.

I can claim 3 million illegal votes without knowing, but don't worry, I'll prove it later!

Is this a monty python skit? Real life? Who can tell?
