Seriously, stop disabling SELinux. Learn how to use it before you blindly shut it off. Every time you run setenforce 0, you make Dan Walsh cry. Dan is a nice guy and he certainly doesn't deserve that....

Friendly reminder for Americans ---

If +Gary Johnson gets even 5% of the vote then:

The +Libertarian Party will no longer have to spend half its budget just staying on the ballot. The +Libertarian Party will have the same rights as the status quo parties. This will apply to ALL +Libertarian Party  candidates. This will fundamentally change the Federal, State, and Local elections.

So, if you're AT ALL unhappy with your choices in this election, PLEASE consider helping your fellow Americans secure more and better choices. With your help, we can begin changing American politics for the better.

This is important to read, especially if you intend to vote for either Obama or Romney. Both of them can be expected to continue to expand this program over the next four years.

I can't make this stuff up

I'm sitting in a Starbucks doing random whatever over an iced americano. While I waiting for my drink, I watched a guy with his friend, pick up a newspaper; and start to remark on the Samsung Apple verdict.

Guy: "Wait, so what they're saying is, Samsung is the same as Apple?"
Friend: "I know, right? Makes me think twice about how much I paid for my Mac Book"
Guy: "Seriously"

Not 10 minutes later, a husband and wife, same newspaper:

Husband: "... Samsung's iPad is the same as Apple's iPad, and I paid how much for the Apple one? Honey, I told you they were a ripoff", after looking up the Samsung tablet on his iPhone.
Wife: "Oh wow," looking at the screen, "... that's a lot cheaper. Think we can return it?"

I put my Samsung QX410 on my table, and started to plug in, when he leans over to me, "Sorry, you don't mind if I ask, how much did you pay for your Samsung laptop?"

"Oh, no worries, it was $700." I replied. 

I watched shock overcome his face, like actual shock. He looked at me, blankly, for an awkward amount of time, "Mind if I have a look?" he asked. 

So, I obliged, and showed him a few things. He commented on Windows 7, so I opened up my virtual machine of OS/X... By the time the conversation was over, he was ready to kick Cupertino in the nuts, I think.

... Now, the punchline: 

I'm writing this post after the FOURTH group of Starbucks patrons have made the connection that Samsung is now the same as Apple. They don't know the details, they don't really care, what they know is Apple is saying that Samsung is the same as Apple ... and with one simple Google Search, you get prices that are basically half for what seems to be the same products -- for nearly everything. 

Two of these groups (including the husband/wife) asked me about my Samsung laptop, the second group noticed my Galaxy phone (also by Samsung)... Best billion dollar ad-campaign Samsung ever had.

Introduction
I am many things and have a variety of interests.

My online presence tends to focus on consuming and redistributing information. I post about philosophy, politics, technology, science, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

I believe that the best path to the truth is open discussion. I welcome anyone that wishes to leave comments.

I don't require that you agree with me, but I do require an atmosphere of mutual respect. I give as good as I get, but I won't tolerate hostility.
