#1728305 Caught!

Posted by Abradix on 30 March 2014 - 06:24 PM

I just caught up on the thread and I dont think I want pics in this case. Poor cats :(

 

It's just for research. Really... Well, that and making a killer profit for original content in the "deep-web"

 

 

Dix! Where you been man?

 

Hey broseph! I've been working full-time, doing comedy on the side, and uploading daily shit to youtube... Not much time for neo recently, but I still like to pop in and check on the old crew.

 

 

Would it be creepy if I welcomed Abradix back from his long hiatus even though I only know him through lurking old posts? Lol hi there. 

 

I'd feel amiss if my reputation didn't precede me. Thanks for the ego bump. Have a +1. I was going to post some of my comedy, but with an actual musician in the thread, I'm not sure I'm ready for the backlash.

 

Anyways, I'll be around... Usually just lurking, but I'm ready for a war in debate if everyone else is.




#1531317 Net Neutrality Still Under Attack

Posted by Abradix on 24 November 2011 - 09:52 AM

The Internet Censorship Bill took a massive beating last week (yeah, you did that!) but drug companies, movie studios and the Chamber of Commerce do *not* go down easy.

Now-- get this-- they're telling Congress it's a "jobs" bill.

This is dangerous. Everyone in Congress is desperate to do something to create jobs. Now the most powerful lobbies in Washington are banging down their doors, saying "this is your (only) chance to pass a jobs bill."

Since Congress is away for the holiday, there's one priority: sign up as many people as possible for a massive call-in day when Congress returns.

Click here to join in, by committing to call your Senator

Since the House's "SOPA" has such a bad name (again, congratulations to those who took part) lobbyists are moving their weight behind the Senate version, PIPA ("The PROTECT IP Act"). The Senate's censorship bill is just as bad; it's only missing a few of SOPA's extra-crazy provisions, like the ones that could send you to jail for singing a pop song on YouTube. The website blocking provisions are all there. Still, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid thinks that with the attention on SOPA, he can sneak PIPA through quickly when Congress returns.

Reid needs to know this bill won't move forward without a fight. That's why we're organizing a call-in day for Tuesday, using the same tools that our heroes at Tumblr used last week. It's kind of perfect. While Congress rests we've got 5 full days to sign up friends, colleagues, Twitter followers-- everybody. Then on Tuesday we'll unleash a storm of phone calls.

Sign up, and encourage others to sign up. The television is their silver bullet, and word of mouth is the way to fight back.

This weekend, instead of nobly vegging out on the internet, you can fight for the future of the internet and freedom of speech. Every ounce of time you spend counts.

Signups now, phone calls Tuesday. Start your engines.





#1531173 UC Davis protestors pepper sprayed

Posted by Abradix on 23 November 2011 - 03:44 PM

This manifesto is posted at all Occupy encampments.


"As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

"As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power.

"We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.



  • They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.
  • They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.
  • They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.
  • They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.
  • They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless animals, human and non, and actively hide these practices.
  • They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.
  • They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.
  • They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.
  • They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.
  • They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.
  • They have sold our privacy as a commodity.
  • They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press. They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.
  • They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.
  • They have donated large sums of money to politicians, who are responsible for regulating them.
  • They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.
  • They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives or provide relief in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantial profit.
  • They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.
  • They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.
  • They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.
  • They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad. They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.
  • They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts.*
"To the people of the world,"We, the Los Angeles General Assembly occupying Los Angeles City Hall, urge you to assert your power.

"Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.

"To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.

"Join us and make your voices heard!"

*NOTE - These grievances are not all-inclusive.

__________________________________________________________________________________



The chaos comes because everyone's solution seems to be different. Some people want community gardens, other people want to march downtown and torch a Wells Fargo... Personally, I believe we simply need to get back to the principles that this country was founded on. There is no document we should be forced to live by except for the Constitution. People have a moral compass, and we should be allowed to use it. When manners are enforced, they are no longer manners. Laws are strangling the innovation that the US was once so renound for. America is not a Democracy, it is a Constitutional Republic with SOME Democratic principles... Your rights should be inalienable, 99% of the country can never take them away from you. Yet somewhere along the line, someone managed a 51% vote (during a time of extreme panic) and now I can't fly on an airplane without suspending my 4th Amendment. I can't buy a gun because my name is on a list, even though the 2nd Amendment clearly states that it is my right. I can't exercise my right to peaceful assembly, or redress of grievances because it interferes with some grandiose scheme that has been laid out for me, and that (apparently) must be followed to the letter, under threat of flashbangs, tear gas, and usage of rubber bullets on unarmed citizens.

Democracy is the absolute worst form of government, if only for the reason that the government is the one to tell you what YOU voted for. They'll tell you from here to doomsday that its all for your protection. THEY'RE LYING!! Don't listen to a god damn word these snakes say, but watch very carefully what they do... And the people who are paying attention to the signs can see this country headed in a very scary direction. Rather than defame our character because Faux News said we're all drug addicts, why not help us pump the brakes? I've posted some of this before, but I thank you for reading this far... I'll end here with a quote from economist Herbert Stein: "If something cannot go on forever, it will stop." Deceptively simple, yet massively profound. So perhaps the mainstream is right... We don't have to find a way to stop the derivative-driven war machine, we're seeing the signs that it can't go on forever so its going to stop anyways. The truth is inarguable, if you're careening along a road toward a collapsed bridge (and we most assuredly are), you'll certainly stop, one way or the other. But it makes quite a bit of difference, at least to you, whether you skid to a halt four yards before the cliff's edge or whether you come to rest at the bottom of the ravine...

I can't say I'm shocked, but I'm most assuredly pissed off. Let the government know that they're overstepping their bounds. They will be starting hearings about the bill today, its time to make a stand. They are trying to fast track this bill through Congress completely under the radar, another bill you won't hear a thing about in any sort of mainstream news because they know what they're doing is out of line. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance, we have lost many of our freedoms and now the singular one that has kept me sane and let me express my views, and dissatisfaction with our current path, to my peers is being threatened. The wording is muddled and cloudy, leaving much room for interpretation, which is never a good thing when it comes to passing laws. Write your congressmen, write him twice, send a letter bomb. They need to know there are some things that the American people won't stand for. "Stop Internet Piracy"? You can put whatever voter-friendly label you like on this infringing trash that they're calling a bill, but garbage is still garbage. You have the right to tell your government when its wrong... Start doing so.

#1524139 Pregnant Woman and Ex-Marine Arrested For A Sandwhich

Posted by Abradix on 01 November 2011 - 09:32 AM

Any parent that names their child Zofia needs to be sterilized anyways. I'm glad the police took it upon themselves to denigrate these dastardly stolen sandwich kingpins... The world is so much safer now!

So you had a conversation about dead babies? lol I wonder how that got started.


A better question would be, how does any conversation NOT lead to dead babies?

I've kept my rates at .25-1 since the update and had no trouble... Also managed to buy 7 items from the attic a couple days ago. Not sure what the deal is, might just be a matter of time til they catch on. I'll letcha know :whistling:

I have read quite a bit about it now, but I can't think of a nice way to put it together. I need to make a PowerPoint presentation. To start, It would be great if you could suggest where do I begin? xD


This article might be what you're looking for. Informative and cohesive.

#1522204 Would you rather live in a world where Harry Potter were real or pokemon?

Posted by Abradix on 26 October 2011 - 02:57 PM

I wished that world would be like Pokemon


Wished? Past tense? I'm 23 now, and still wish to live in Kanto everytime I blow out my candles.

Even if I know it'll never happen in this lifetime...

#1522174 Occupy Wall Street - A protest of huge proportions

Posted by Abradix on 26 October 2011 - 01:41 PM

Lol I like how you don't even know your own laws and are assuming any protest broke up by police is brutality and an infringement of your human rights.

Let's face it, police do not give a fuck about you or your views. They get paid more money, are in stable jobs and ride around in a nee-naw car. They are cotent in the fact they don't need to sit in a tent for 6 days being a whiney dirty bitch.

Why would they possibly want to supress this protest? What possible justification in hundreds of cops risking their livelihoods, mortgages and families futures on, unless they wernt acting within the law.

Unless of course you believe all police are working for "the man" which proves my theory on you dolelite wastes again.

Jobs are available in California. Here's over 500 by using a simple google search http://us.tiptopjob....A/region/100109

So I just found hundreds of jobs in seconds and you moan there's none out there because "the man" says you can't smoke weed?

You're arguments are getting sillier and sillier.


Your vitriolic, sophomoric responses and underhanded stereotypes don't really make for an intelligent debate... Then again, look who I'm talking to... It depresses me to no end to know that its people like you that are supposedly looking out for the interests of others.

Americans have a right to let the government, and therefore law-enforcement, know when it is wrong. It's written right into the Constitution, the document this country was founded on and that indisputedly trumps any silly state penal code about not being able to stay overnight in a park that was paid for with my tax dollars. I understand the police don't care about the views of OWS, they're living the American Dream right? Well, I understand that its called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it. The dumb-dumb police drones don't realize that we're out there trying to defend their liberties as well. They don't see the fascist globalist banker regime that has dug its claws into our country and they certainly don't realize the implications of a police state, because they're a part of it.

I also lol'd at your Google search. Everyone knows the best way to get a job is to Google it right? Wrong! I actually live here, I've applied to hundreds of jobs over the past year and yet I'm still stuck scraping by with temporary jobs and under-the-table pay. I'm sure 6.5 million unemployed in the state would be overjoyed to hear about the WHOLE 500 jobs you found on Google! :rolleyes: Your "argument" is shallow, laughable, and holds no water.

Edit: It is indeed quickly evolving (or devolving, as the case may be) into a police state situation as I attempted to demonstrate in my preceding post. And if it comes to that, I'd gladly martyr myself for the movement. Its better to die on your feet than live on your knees, but I don't suppose you'd know much about conviction like that... Hey, could you tie my shoe while you're down there?


#1521945 Would you rather live in a world where Harry Potter were real or pokemon?

Posted by Abradix on 25 October 2011 - 09:38 PM

I dream of Pokemon day and night... My Kangaskhan and I would rule the world!

Regardless of the dangers exhibited in the manga (which I own, love, and read about once a year), I think I would manage just fine... I'm fleet of foot and quick of mind, I could handle myself. Doesn't the danger only add to the excitement? Much more intriguing than sitting in a Hogwarts dorm room and playing with my dick.
