Lacero
Just read Lacero by Andy Weir a short story set in the Ready Player One universe.  Not a bad story, short but it puts Nolan Sorrento in a much more sympathetic light, and by extension really changes the tone of the whole novel.  The thing I liked about it i...

A Well Regulated Militia...
In the wake of the Orlando shootings I am seeing all sorts of calls for gun control again, most, at some point quoting "A Well Regulated Militia" as an explanation on why gun control is necessary and proper. Here's my theory on that - Everyone reads that cl...

#NeverTrump but also #NeverHilary
I am not actually a #NeverTrump supporter, although I do refuse to vote for someone who uses the Road to Serfdom as a how-to manual rather than a cautionary tale; but I also refuse to support Hilary. For christ's sake people she is the antithesis of everyth...

Just Gonna Say It - I Hate GURPS
My Friday Night Gaming Group is currently in the middle of a Cyberpunk campaign that is being run in GURPS. After some fits and starts we are at the point where we are ready to enter cyberspace in avatar form.  In and of itself I am fairly excited about th...

Vroom Vroom - new candidate for worst music video ever
I generally find Charli XCX's music entertaining, maybe not the best stuff in the world, but entertaining; I mean you can dance to Break the Rules and a she was the saving grace in Fancy - and people like Boom Clap and a few other songs of hers, but this so...

On Gun Control and the Terrorist Watch List
Lots of talk about banning people on either the terrorist watch list or the no-fly list from buying guns since the Orlando shooting.  I have two thoughts on the subject: 1.  It is reasonable that people on either list should be subjected to extra scrutiny, ...

I am not going to deny that the GOP would have opposed it, but the administration has made wholesale use of the no fly list, not attempted to curtail it's use. Politicians on the left have embraced it (as have politicians on the right I'm sure but since I am conceding the point I don't feel the need to dig up quotes). The current calls for expansion are coming from the left. Your original reply framed this as a left / right issue with the left in the morally superior position. (That extends to a lot of other civil liberties areas too, "hate" speech, campus speech, due process for sexual assault accusations.) That's what I am calling BS on. You can't be saying oh we need to expand the use of the no fly list, but by the way we oppose the no fly list because it's evil, or say that you support free speech and then attempt to limit speech etc.

Again, I know this happens on the Right too and I try to be morally honest and call bullshit on them too when I catch it. I am probably not as successful there because of my own acknowledged confirmation bias.

Example - after Benghazi the GOP will really have no room to talk about out of control investigations the next time the Dems control congress.

Gawker and Thiel
Wired Magazine has an article today Gawker’s Bankruptcy Is How a Free Press Dies, One VC at a Time All I can say is what a pile of unmitigated bullshit.  Everyone is all up in arms because Peter Thiel has "destroyed" Gawker and by extension the free press. ...

Agreed, Gawker is getting what it deserves. I am no fan of Thiel, he is a hypocrite, and his being gay was no particular secret. Hulk Hogan on the other hand, what was done to him was wrong and very fucked up.
