    My oldest daughter is a candidate (and most likely winner) for
    Chairman of the Republican Party in Yuma County, Arizona ;-)

    So, now you're admitting child abuse!

    Remember, Bush is a dangerous liar and mass murderer.
    Would Jesus have you vote for the antichrist?

    Congrats. Ignore the leftist jackals.
  4. You mean JFKerry? Certainly not!
  5. Why? Did you design the electronic voting machines?

    with user-accessible debuggers."

    Well, it is a test, after all. By their friuts shall ye know them,
    and all that.

    Good Luck on Judgement Day!

    Remember, Bush is a dangerous liar.

    Congrats. I'm a Dem who grew up in Yuma. It's a flexable county, Dems
    and Repubs have done well there now and again. I hope that she herself
    remains flexable as well and doesn't feel obligated to tow the party

  9. User accessible debuggers are already in Mozilla. It's called Bugzilla.
    Linus was treating his users as co-developers in the most effective
    possible way:

    7. Release early. Release often. And listen to your customers.

    Linus's innovation wasn't so much in doing quick-turnaround releases
    incorporating lots of user feedback (something like this had been
    Unix-world tradition for a long time), but in scaling it up to a level
    of intensity that matched the complexity of what he was developing. In
    those early times (around 1991) it wasn't unknown for him to release a
    new kernel more than once a day! Because he cultivated his base of
    co-developers and leveraged the Internet for collaboration harder than
    anyone else, this worked.
  10. So? What else is new? (Aren't all politicians?)
    By electing them as our 'leaders', we make all politicians dangerous.
  11. I'm sure she'll only tow the Nazi line her dear old dad has
    indoctrinated her into.

    "CONGRADULATIONS"? Sheeesh- look at these goddammed chronically
    illiterate trash with failing brains conversing with eachother! The
    dumbest f_cking riffraff come to SED.

    What is all this "tow the line" business? It is "toe the line", from
    the days of bare knuckle fighting, when boxers would each stand behind
    a line before the fight. If you followed the rules, and didn't step
    beyond the mark too early you were toeing the line.

    All of his daughters are government employees in one form or another- I
    wonder if Thompson told them that government employment is the "ultimate

    In the case of the Bush republican machine these days, towing may be
    a more applicable word. One imagines hundreds of the party faithful
    leaning into the tow line, trying to move the massive deadload of Bush
    government divisive attitudes and neo-con policies, with the right-wing
    police-state control-your-life agendas piled high on top.
  16. Awesome!

    We need all the help we can get. Did she have to take any special
    courses in how to fight the new religion called liberalism?

    Not likely... her husband is Libertarian.

    LOL! Brings to mind something prophetic which my fourth grade teacher
    said, which was that she saw the US slipping into socialism and the
    then Soviet Union heading for democracy.

    Another interesting take on it is the musical group "Steppenwolf"'s
    offering of "Monster".
