Re: The other way about?

Run Windows in a VM om Linux. That way when Microsoft fucks up Windows AGAIN and kills shit, you can still use your computer.

And they WILL fuck it up again.

" ... if you have ever met Richard Stallman in the wild you would not exactly be endeared to Linux either ... "

Wellllllll ..................

I have actually met Mr. Stallman. And as to "endeared" to Linux? 2 plus decades of daily driving Linux says otherwise. I'm not forced to use anything of his. But this is an effort to force me to use Potterings, and Microsoft's shit.

And it appears that you don't understand that Mr. Stallman actually has nothing to do with Linux. GNU really has nothing to do with "Linux". GNU is just used by OS's that use the Linux "kernel". That's why "some" people insist that if you use a Linux OS that you call it GNU/Linux.

Linux, GNU are two different things.

So yes, I have met him. And usually he can fuck off just like Pottering can. And I will keep using Linux in spite of them.

Sorry. It's you that doesn't know how to "manage" a project. If the boss tells you that the project is due by close of business Friday, that means that if you wait until then, YOU ARE LATE. And the rest of the team isn't going to be happy with you.

Re: I agree with the Supreme Court

No. Technically it was by Executive Order of the sitting President the United States. The Emancipation Proclamation. And a war was fought over it ( And yes it was fought over that. If IRC both the President and the VP of the Confederacy both wrote that in fact was. ) You know, actual history and fact.

And then the majority of The Congress of the United States decided that it should be in the Constitution. And was ratified by the States. And is bullshit. It should have had to be.

And abortion should not have to be an Amendment to the Constitution. Choice already is. Choice is a human right. The right to control ones own body is a human right. The right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. And an amendment to protect those rights is insanity. Same for marriage.

Why do simple human rights need to be Amendments to the Constitution. Why should respect and dignity?

Your opinion is bullshit.

Re: I agree with the Supreme Court


georgezilla Silver badge

Re: I agree with the Supreme Court

" ... Returning authority to the states is a good thing. ... "

But it's not actually returning rights to them. If it was then states that are banning abortion would actually put it on the ballot and letting the people decide. But they wont. Because they know what that vote would be.

Example: Kansas. The people just voted against a Constitutional amendment that would ban abortion.

While 13 other States aren't allowing their citizens to decide.

Oh and my Stated voted FOR term limits for those elected to represent us. Guess what, that's not the right of the citizens of my State to do.

Another example. Gun rights. Several States have voted for restrictions on gun ownership. You know sane laws. Like not letting children to buy assault style weapons. Or allow people with mental health issues ( I have such issues. And you do really not want to have a gun.).

Or how about marriage? Or adoption. You know, rights of "the gays".

And just so you know, CHOICE is a human right that is a Constitutionally protected right of women. And should NOT be decided by States. Fuck the religious radical right members of the SCotUS.

"States rights" is nothing but bullshit. It's not about rights, and States deciding them. It's about power. And a few not letting the people decide.

Put shit on the ballot, and let the people decide!

Re: For the same reasons it deals with countries that throw gays off roofs and subjugate their women

No, actually we don't. But then you don't live in reality, so you don't see it.

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: For the same reasons it deals with countries that throw gays off roofs and subjugate their women

Woke is just a term used by the ignorant because they have no real argument against the subject that they accuse people of being woke of.

I've been accused of "woke" for things such as ........... same sex marriage. Because they can't actually argue against two consenting adults in a loving, caring, committed, long term relationship marrying.

Or equal pay.

Or the right to choose.

Or anything else that they are to damn stupid to understand.

As a "woke" person, I'm not afraid of being call names by the stupid, the hateful or the xenophobic.

As an example, I'm not afraid of your name calling. And yes "wake" is name calling, you're just not smart enough to know that it in fact is. Because you have zero rational, logical or fact based argument to backup your claims about "the woke".

And integrity? Lol. Now that's just to funny coming from you.

" ... throw gays off roofs and subjugate their women ... "

Lol. I am in fact "dealing" with both of those very things happening in the US right now.

Now go away and let the adults talk.

georgezilla Silver badge


The choice of the terminally ill.

Because they can make an informed decision.

And if they can't, is there a DNR or and other advanced medical directive?

I have both. If I'm dead, go the fuck away. And if I'm that bad off, help me fucking end it. And I have someone that can and will enforce those decisions.

It's not a hard concept to understand. Nor was it a hard decision for me to make.

georgezilla Silver badge

Still not for me to decide.

Next question.

georgezilla Silver badge

We can both be wrong. And I can accept that fact. Can you?

Then there's who. how, what determines which of us is or isn't wrong?

There is no God. So no.

And it's not actually up to either of us to decide.

To quote you ................... Now what?

georgezilla Silver badge


When it can actually survive on it's own without extreme human/medical intervention. And a tube that allows a machine to do it's breathing for it is extreme.

Now a premature birth? You do what you can do to help it. Because of ........... you know ................. birth.

georgezilla Silver badge

Yes, I am in fact saying that.

Can a 6 to 9 week fetus survive outside the womb?

Can a 20 week old fetus survive outside the womb without extreme human/medical intervention?

And a tube that allows a machine to breath for them IS extreme intervention. Because it is the ONLY thing keeping it alive.

So again, yes. Yes I am saying that.

Does that make me cold and inhuman? Nope. It's reality. And reality doesn't have any fucks to give what you or I think.

georgezilla Silver badge

" ... So I'll ask you, too. At what point during the birth process ... "


I don't need to answer that question. Because YOU DID!

Hint: Key word ......................... BIRTH.

Now if you are actually asking at what point do I believe that a fetus shouldn't be terminated, then I have two answers.

1) If in fact it were up to me. When the fetus can survive outside the womb, without extreme human/medical intervention ( and a tube that allows a machine to breathe for them because they can't on their own, nor can they take sustenance on their own, IS extreme intervention ).

2) It's not up to me to decide. I'm just not qualified to.

And my opinion is irrelevant. As is yours

Re: re: sufficient reason to kill someone

That is a stupid question.

And I can't even begin to explain why it is.

Because you actually asked it, it makes me believe that you wouldn't, couldn't, understand, and in fact don't understand, why it is.

Re: re: sufficient reason to kill someone

" ... Convince the pro-lifers that a 20-week-old foetus is not a person (based on medical arguments) ... "

Let them try to convince anyone, that a 20-week-old fetus CAN survive outside of the womb without extreme human/medical intervention. Proof? Just go to any Hospital, to where newborns are, or to the NICU and see just how many premature babies there are that are much older the 20 weeks there are that can't.

I don't need to prove anything or anyone. Reality does that. And reality gives no fucks at all to what anyone "thinks".

" ... Doctors simply are not trained to make these decisions. ... "

And you are?

Then there's the actual oath that doctors take. One that is actually all about ethics.

How much more ethical can you get?

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: re: sufficient reason to kill someone

" ... Would you trust doctors to decide which fetuses must (as opposed to may) be aborted? ... "

Okay, so we shouldn't trust doctors at all? for anything?

Oh wait, we don't. We trust them to give us their considered medical opinion. We trust them to give us choices. And for us to then make informed choices for ourselves.

Which in many places in the US, is something that can no longer be done. Because old men and religious fanatics, who don't have a fucking clue, are making that choice for everyone.

So yes, trust doctors and the person making the decision.

It's her choice. Period.

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: re: sufficient reason to kill someone

" ... but it's up to society ... "

Then let "society" actually decide. Oh wait. you can't do that. Because we know what society would decide.

In the US, society, by a majority, quit a large one, is against the overturn of Roe v. Wade. And we can't have society decide. No, no. Can't have that.

" ... for individuals to decide how close to that they personally want to go. ... "

So her body, her choice?

No shit.

Re: re: sufficient reason to kill someone

" ... This whole argument is about giving people the right to terminate a life because they were irresponsible! ... "

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: re: sufficient reason to kill someone

" ... I'd argue a fetus IS someone/a person/a human being. ... "

Okay. Then let me ask you this.

Can that "someone/a person/a human being" exist/survive on it's own ( without human intervention ) survive outside of the womb? Can it breath, take sustenance on it's own?

No? Then I would have to disagree with YOUR definition.

Now I am not arguing that the premature, naturally born should be allowed to die because they can't. Just arguing about WHEN a fetus becomes someone/a person/a human being.

And if IRC when it comes to religion, the Christian Bible doesn't have anything to say about abortion or when life begins. While if IRC the Old Testament does. Something about a first breath. At which time it gets a soul.

Here is what I believe ..........

Her body, her choice. Period.

My opinion is therefore not relevant. CHOICE. Hers and hers alone. Period.

" ... She also conspired to snatch away my reproductive rights. ... "



I'm sorry. What is it that you don't seem capable of fucking understanding?

YOU CAN"T reproduce. You have no "reproductive rights". All you contribute to reproduction is .........ONE single fucking sperm. That's it.

And she doesn't need YOU to get it. She doesn't need your "permission" one way or the other. Reproductive rights are her rights and ONLY her rights. Her CHOICE, and only her choice.

If you think anything else ................. sorry, you're fucking mistaken. And reality just doesn't give a single fuck what you think.

When YOU can actually do the job of reproducing ( ie: actually becoming pregnant and giving birth ), come back and we will discus YOUR reproductive rights.

Until then ................... Just fuck off.

georgezilla Silver badge

" ... As to his rights: what are they, exactly? ... "

HIS "reproductive rights"?

Lol. He has none. He can't reproduce.

His only contribution to reproduction is ............... A single sperm. A single, solitary, fucking sperm. That's it. And she doesn't even need him to get it.

She really doesn't need his "permission" one way or the other.

Sorry to to burst the bubble of the men out there that think that they have any "reproductive rights".


Period. Her body, her choice. Fucking end of discussion.

And if you have a problem with it? Tough shit. Reality doesn't have any fucks to give on the subject.

You can't reproduce, you have no reproductive rights.

And competition is a "good" thing.

So they should fix THEIR shit, and leave Linux in general out of it.
