    A most impressive thread NW!

    Nerdy? There are times I’d almost forgive you for being a Chelsea person. This is one of them. Thank you legend!

    Well, this phenomenon occurs for pretty much any topic in the media, not just for MH370.

    Defending Charles Murray who says Blacks are genetically inferior to whites in terms of intellect and so should be left in poverty. Congratulations, Andrew Sullivan. You are a racist.

    Bravo! One would think as a gay person, he would understand what it feels like to be in the minority and have some scumbag declare your very essence as “genetically inferior” or say that your presence in the world is a “disease” and therefore you should be treated like a worthless object and be denied the good society has to offer.

    Well, I’ve worked two days straight with a raging cold. I feel like I’ve earned a brownie. Seriously, where’s my fucking brownie?

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – The U.S. government announced on Friday it will give up its most direct means of control over the Internet’s infrastructure, but said it will insist that the job be taken on by a group that includes the private sector and other interested parties, not just multiple governments.

    The Commerce Department maintains the master database for such top-level domain names as .com and .net, as well as the corresponding numeric addresses, but has contracted out that work to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.

      BTW, I didn’t read the entire article.

      Almost seems Andy Borowitz-ish. If not, what could possibly go wrong with that “private sector” part?

        I wondered, JO’B, but wasn’t in the mood to read closer. Thought that since it was Business I, there might be something worth sharing.

          It was worth sharing, and the part you posted was probably enough to get the gist … since I wasn’t in the mood to read closer, either!

    This writer does not like Gov Christie – read the comments as well – a couple of zingers

    I know it is often very hard to get the strength to reach out to those who take illogical decisions based on being gullible;

    but messages from hate-mongers and liars are numerous and loud;

    but at this crunch time, we should try and take one for Team Obama and Team America and tentatively reach out to those in our networks who hate Obamacare but are uninsured or under-insured;

    this would provide them an opportunity to put their families’ interests first and hopefully give us an opening for the Nov vote;

    “If she ever makes another YouTube video or movie, Yulia Marushevska wants the next on to be a happy one with a good ending.

    Before the Feb. 22 fall of Viktor Yanukovych as Ukraine’s fourth president, the 24-year-old Ph.D. student of Ukrainian literature at Taras Shevchenko National University was known mostly – if at all — as “the girl” on a riveting video that’s been seen more than 7.7 million times.

    It’s hard for her or anybody else to explain why her two-minute message went viral, but some of the reasons include her beauty, sincerity and passion. She also delivered a powerful message in accented and imperfect English, giving the video clip even more authenticity.

    “I want you to know why thousands of people all over my country are on the streets. There is only one reason: We want to be free from a dictatorship,” she says, looking into the camera while standing on Hrushevskoho Street on a cold winter night. “We want to be free from the politicians who work only for themselves, who are ready to shoot, to beat, to injure people just for saving their money, just for saving their houses, just for saving their power. I want these people who are here to have dignity, who are brave, I want them to live a normal life. We are civilized people, but our government are barbarians … We want to be free. I know that maybe tomorrow we will have no phone, no Internet connection and we will be alone here. And maybe police will murder us one after another, when it will be dark here.””

    On a discussion board about flight 370 the responses to my query about why all airlines don’t have GPS on all major airline parts are either a) yes, they should and it’s criminal that they don’t or b) they should but may be too weighty or expensive. Yeah, as all these countries spend millions looking for a needle in a haystack without a clue that it’s even the right haystack…

      I don’t know the context, but it does seem like it’s a prime factor: “The announcement comes as Australia steps up its maritime border patrols to deter asylum seekers arriving by boat from neighbouring Indonesia.”

        It is the only factor with this racist. The immigrant inflow down under is something like 1% of its population. But like a true rw nut, gotta play the fear card and spread money around his ‘defence’ buddies.

      So the right wing media wanted to remind us what Mitt said about Russia, okay let us see if they remind us what Mitt said about that Jeep Plant moving to China. You know the lie Mitt told.
