be grabbed by people like Relbeek and used to justify Athieism as the state religion, with all nonathieists slated to be rounded up and sent to concentration camps. It's happened before with Adolf Hitler and with Janet Reno. He's been gone how long and you still can't let him go? Oy man...you are i...

And then you follow it with annother empty positng seemingly indicating that NAMBLA is somehow connected with Gay causes. (DUH)( though I am dubious as to the connectios running the other direction). However, I see zero material in that long post that actually addressed the question you were asked. ...

Ok, finally a post that is solidly constructed -- and actually worth attempting to refute. I will admit that there are other candidates that may well have more experience politically than her, and I have seen people who are less experienced. Both sides seem to be running candidates based upon name r...

I can see where you are coming from and why, but I will say that I disagree in your interpretation. I would still disagree with your language, and rhetoric though.

Seconded. Harlowe is right. You used to actually make points, as opposed to reiterating talking points seconded from conservative media. I still consider you a friend, but you are trashing my opinion of your contact with political rationality. Your axioms are flawed. You are (recently) posting with ...

Maltheos... While I'm sorry you were offended by my mention of the name "Mondale" you've got to admit: he's a tax-and-spend liberal of the sort that went out with the end of the New Deal, and his ideas on fiscal policy haven't changed since he was Carter's veep. He doesn't even bother trying to hid...

OK Eidolon. You just crossed the line here. I am here facts, and real political thought.

Monte carlo methods are best used to solve problems that are just too complex to attack in other ways. How they work is by taking a particularly ugly piece of math that can be solved in a simple manner on a pointwise basis, and by carefully sampling the population of points within the area people ar...

Monte carlo method is a method of taking a complex and( effectively ireducable ) system and analysing it as a set of discrete points. ( kind of like opinion polling represents the opinions of the populous. It allows people to model things that are just too mathematicly nasty. Its a fair quantity of ...

Ad Aware is also quite good at sweeping Malware, as is MS Antispyware, but the best defense is not getting them in the PC in the first place.

Just a tip for spyware removal success. Bootup and log in in SAFE MODE. then run your anti spyware software. This will make removal MUCH easier.

Both of the extremes have a strong anti intelectual thread to their beliefs. The far left has an almost knee jerk tendency to distrust authority, and the right is so attached to its personal divinely mandated and don't challenge me with the facts trust of authority. Frankly anti intelectualism is a ...
